Parsnip are Paris Richens (Hierophants), Stella Rennex (Bananagun, The Dandelion), Carolyn Hawkins (School Damage, Chook Race), and Rebecca Liston (The Dandelion). Like the vegetable of the same name, they are a curious, nourishing, and surprisingly sweet morsel of goodness. Down from Sydney first the first time are Sachet, featuring Lani Crooks (Day Ravies, King Tears Mortuary), Sam Wilkinson (Shrapnel, Day Ravies), Nick Webb (Point Being) and Chris Anstis. They are to guitar pop what the sachet of bumbu is to your instant mee goreng: the crunchy, moreish missing element. The Stroppies comprises Gus Lord (The Stevens, Twerps, Tyrannamen), Steph Hughes (Dick Diver) Claudia Serfaty (Blank Statements) and Rory Heane (White Walls). Get to hear some of the wonky, wonderful pop tunes off their new cassette, out now on Hobbies Galore.
