This July we’re thrilled to be hosting Aussie Punks Vintage Crop at Future Yard, bringing through our doors a sound that incorporates jerky post-punk elements into their muddy garage rock, to galvanizing effect. Forming in 2012, just below Melbourne, in the bay city of Geelong; Vintage Crop are next in the long line of exciting rock bands to come from Australia. Their style of slicing guitar music has pushed the band to the fore of the Melbourne circuit, and established them as one of the talents surging to the surface of Australia’s impressive music scene. The band released their first album (TV Organs) in 2017 & haven’t relented since, releasing a total of 4 albums in 6 years moving from muddy, garage rock to post-punk. Their latest work “Kibitzer” showcases their signature tight guitar licks and robust rhythm section. Teaming up again with iconic record labels Anti- Fade (AUS) & Upset The Rhythm (UK), “Kibitzer” is the band sounding truer to form than ever. They steer their sound any which way they feel like it – and they’ll be bringing it to Future Yard this summer.

Geelong’s favourite sons release their much-anticipated fourth album, Kibitzer in June this year. Running with the ball that 2020’s “Serve To Serve Again” punted forward, this album marks another energetic break towards the goal for Vintage Crop. Kibitzer sees the band define their field of play, more melodic at times, still bruising, forever droll. These ten tracks of ‘snappy as elastic’ punk are packed with tensile riffs, hefty beats and witty refrains of everyman curiosity. Kibitzer was written in quick response to their critically lauded ‘Serve To Serve Again’ album. Harsh guitars, a brutish rhythm section and a knack for always having the right words at hand are still abundant, but this time Vintage Crop’s songs expand upon their forceful nature with greater harmonic arrangement. It was recorded by Jasper Jolley in one single session on a former apple orchard in Geelong, a backdrop that mirrors the band’s own organic growth whilst highlighting their willingness to approach capturing their own sound their own way.
