Song of the day: Celadore – "Distance Is A Gun"

March 1, 2012

Here’s Australian band Celadore with the title track of their Distance Is A Gun EP:

Celadore – “Distance Is A Gun” (2010)

Apparently, the band like playing in forests. I have a (possibly impertinent) question for them: When you’re playing in forests, where does the electricity come from?

Whilst looking for links to the band, I came across an article in Beat Magazine that seemed to me to have an oddly worded introductory paragraph:

“It can be a long road to success in the music industry, but for Melbourne based indie-pop group, Celadore, a lack of drive won’t stop them. Nor will a lack of talent.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I think the article’s author is implying Celadore has no drive or talent.

By the way, here’s the band pestering a Beatles song:

Song of the day: Celadore – "Kinks In Armour"

August 11, 2011

The ever-productive Scott Thurling, owner of Popboomerang Records, has produced another Popboomerang compilation. It’s called Making A Big Sound! #2, and young Mr. Thurling has rather generously made the entire thing a free download. (Yay!)

Here’s a track from it:

Celadore – “Kinks In Armour (2011)

OK. Now that you’ve heard the song, what are you waiting for?

Song of the day: Celadore – "Make Sure"

April 28, 2010

Celadore is an Australian band I’d never heard of before until Scott Thurling from Popboomerang Records contacted me and said “Hey, Peter, get a load of this band – you’ll like ’em!”. Scotty was right:

Celadore – “Make Sure” (2010)

“Make Sure” appears on Distance Is A Gun, a 5-track EP that’ll be released on 7 May (or May 7, for any Americans reading this).

For a while I thought that the band’s name was a pun (Celadore = “Cellar Door”*), but couldn’t find any puns in either their song titles or lyrics, so I guess “Celadore” means something else. Maybe the band members are fans of fantasy fiction, because it sounds to me like a fantasy name (e.g., “Hark! I come from the land of Celadore. I am Prince Thesboniere, and my kingdom has been decimated by the Dragons of Zwycornius” etc). Or maybe I have no idea what I’m talking about.
