"on her birthday she ate a vegemite sandwich, a piece of pavlova, and half a lamington..."

When the DJ played Spoonbill's Gumtree at last years Earthdance Festival in Darwin, the manic glitchy reworking of the classic Australian folk song had the whole crowd laughing hysterically as they danced underneath the shade of a huge banyan tree. For me, it was a perfect Australian outdoor dance party moment, down to earth, anarchic, psychedelic, playful, and great to dance to.

Bunkerfunk by Spoonbill

5:21 minutes (6.12 MB)


Bunkerfunk is our feature track from Artist of the Month Spoonbill. From his newly released third album Zoomorphic, the track is a finely sculpted taste of Spoonbill's airtight production with it's belly of a whale bass line crunching its way through the  stilted soul vocals that speak volumes without uttering a single intelligible word and gentle stab of synth, almost makes you want to wrap yourself up in the folds of it's lyricless glitch aesthetics.
