artist spotlight: Buchanan

hello folks,
I'm going to write a little bit about an up-and-coming Australian act who go by the name of Buchanan.

This little band comprised of Josh Simons and John Bara formed in 2009. They hail from Melbourne and are an active part of the Triple J Unearthed project.

They have a great 60s-esque vibe and have been likened to the band Phoenix amongst others and their tunes are definitely ones you can dance to on a Friday night... or whilst cleaning your room... either/or.

With excellent reviews on their 5-track EP (with a bonus 6th track), "No Photo", their second EP release, a mini-tour with Gypsy and the Cat in Melbourne and Sydney, and a slot at the Melbourne St Jerome's Laneway Festival this year, Buchanan are set for more high praise and undoubtedly set for future success.

The "No Photo" EP is available for purchase online from iTunes and you can get it JB Hi-Fi, it's worth a spin on the old decks, each track has a special something for everyone with a layered composition effect, this band is a refreshing new addition to my music collection. Check here for upcoming gigs and events from them!

Check out "Moon" and "Mr Keeperman"
