Black Market Rhythm Co
Black Market Rhythm Co. is: Christopher Ernst – vocals/guitar Matt Granfield – bass/guitar Jake O'Brien - trumpet/guitar/vocals Ben Timony - drums. Queensland’s Black Market Rhythm Co. have been ticking boxes off since 2005, but after a string of niche summer festival appearances and a few months in the studio with New York producer Tidy Kid, the final item on the current list is about to be ticked. Black Market Rhythm Co. first started making waves on the Queensland music scene three years when they firmly established themselves as one of the must-see acts from the Gold Coast. 2006’s Ain’t For Sale EP grabbed them enough airplay on Triple J to get a spot on the official voting list for that year’s Hottest 100 and a slot on the Woodford Folk Festival’s emerging artists program. Fast forward a few years, a few trips to Melbourne and back, and quite a few thousand MySpace friends later, and the band will tell that the release of their debut album, titled ‘Low-Fi Records, Hi-Fi Radio’ is the most exciting thing they’ve done to date. Low-Fi Records, Hi-Fi Radio For a band that have made a name for themselves on stage as being an eclectic, excitable bunch of multi-instrumentalists, Low-Fi Records, Hi-Fi Radio doesn’t disappoint. The music has the youthful exuberance you’d expect from a group with two 18-year-olds fresh out of high school and the solid song-writing you’d want to hear from a couple of mid-to-late twenty somethings who have each spent the better part of a decade playing music, traveling the world and falling in and out of love. The themes on the album are classic rock and roll; boys meeting girls, boys playing music, boys having good times. The result is a delightful conundrum of roots-flavoured pop and roots-flavoured rock. “The best compliment I think we’ve had so far was a reviewer describing us as ‘Led Zeppelin meets The Mighty Boosh’, which is reasonably appropriate,” said Granfield. “The music we make has this vintage rock energy to it, and everyone can tell we’re having an absolute ball, so we’re happy to roll with that. We’re really proud of the music on this album and we can’t wait to hit the road and run with it.” The bands new album Low-Fi Records, Hi-Fi Radio will be released in February 2008. The 11-track debut album is full of catchy tunes that explore the genres of indie pop, roots and rock/reggae. The album combines a stack of new material and a couple of longer term favourites. The catchy title track has already been a live favourite for the past 6 months. First single “You Said That You Loved Me” has received Triple J play. The band will also receive a spotlight interview from Caroline Tran in her program Home & Hosed. The music video clip of “You Said That You Loved Me” has been played on Rage and can be viewed on YouTube (www.youtube.com/theblackmarketrhythm).
