WAMI darlings Timothy Nelson And The Infidels released both their new single Mary Lou and its corresponding video clip to a crowd of impressed punters at Mojo’s Fremantle on Saturday night. Before the unveiling of the clip and subsequent set by Timothy and his Infidels an unjustly sparse crowd were charmed by the beautiful acoustic folk of Amanda Merdzan, excited by the quirky post-punk sound of Dave, then pulled into a salty but calm folk-rock ocean with Bedouin Sea.

Triffids Jill Birt and Alsy Macdonald perform at Hidden Treasures on Thursday, July 26, alongside Richard Lane and Friends, The Morning Night, The Phonetics, and The Shalalees. But before all that, MATTHEW HOGAN talks to Birt about her new solo album Render & Prosper.
