$10 ADV // 7pm // 21+

Three years after the acclaimed ‘HURTSVILLE’ and a move from the inner city of Sydney to the Blue Mountains, Jack Ladder returns with his new album ‘Playmates.’ The album is produced by Kim Moyes of The Presets, and mixed by David Wrench (Jungle, FKA Twigs, Caribou, Seekae). The Dreamlanders (Kirin J. Callinan, Laurence Pike, Donny Benet) reunite to play on the record, with Sharon Van Etten contributing vocals to two tracks.

The first taste of the album, ‘Come On Back This Way,’ showcases a newfound lightness, weaving a glistening synth melody with a chorus duet and wordless backing from Van Etten. Its video was directed by Alex Smith (Coldplay, Peaches & Iggy Pop). Premiered on Stereogum, he is praised as a “surrealist crooner” and that the song “sets Ladder’s haunting baritone against jaunty karaoke-lounge synth sounds. It’s an eerie song in its own right, but Alex Smith’s video lifts it to Lynchian heights.”
