Tuesday, December 18th: THE PUTBACKS
The Putbacks formed in the early 2000s, and soon became something of a house band for their label HopeStreet Recordings and released a number of instrumental 7 inches over the next few years while finalizing their lineup. In 2014, The Putbacks began their ongoing collaboration with Emma Donovan and released the album Dawn to worldwide acclaim.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, they’re the players behind many bands such as The Bombay Royale, The Meltdown and The Black Arm Band.
The Putbacks take their cues from the great house bands of the 60s and 70s soul studios – think of The MGs, The Meters and The Wrecking Crew, as well as film composers from David Axelrod to Adrian Younge and contemporary instrumental groups BADBADNOTGOOD and Khruangbin.
This year, they released their first album on their own simply titled, The Putbacks.
