Recently we read and shared Andrew Stockdale’s revamping of Wolfmother for the 2nd time around. But what happened to the original band mates? Well the rhythm section consisting of the awesome keyboardist Chris Ross and ex Wolfmother drummer Myles Heskett now forming a new three-piece with singer and guitarist Sarah Kelly, formerly of theredsunband from Sydney, Australia. The band unites three of the nation’s most talented rock artists and their divergent musical styles resulting in a synthesis of ethereal dream-pop with the brute force of acid rock. Watch their enchanted but ultimately haunted visuals for the track “You Lose” above and stream “It’s Not Easy Being Mean” both off their debut LP ‘Strange Dreams’ out now through Rice is Nice.

Check out a short video clip of a jam session from Australia’s Byron Bay with Andrew Stockdale and his newly reformed Wolfmother aka Wolfie 3.0 which he has assembled for his 3rd LP under the Wolfmother title. He shared the entire LP on soundcloud last week for a brief time. We captured a few of our favorites which one is “Long Way To Go” below:
This is a repost with the new link to his new record:
Previously we posted:
We’ve been intimately involved in the band Wolfmother’s evolution. We were living in Australia when we first heard their single “Woman” before there was anyone in the larger music world familiar with the band’s retro 70’s rock and roll music. We were there when they made their first appearance on tour for their debut LP here in America. And we were, coincidentally siting right next to the band’s Geffen Records manager on the Qantas flight to Sydney when, he was meeting with the band, in a last ditch effort, to mediate and convince the band that they should not break up and give it another go but due to irreconcilable differences especially with Andrew Stockdale and the main keyboardist he was unsuccessful We followed the band as Wolfmother 2.0, and now Andrew has gone and said, who needs em, and started his own WM 3.0. Check out the music he’s already posted tonight on soundcloud below:

YATM recently posted their cover of Kate Bush and Led Zep’s “Communication Breakdown”. Now the boys are seen here at Waterloo Records in Austin Texas performing another track from the new album, Cosmic Egg, “White Feather” acoustic style.
Oct 24th and 25th, The annual benefit for the Bridge School in Mountain View California. The benefit assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. One of the thrusts of the program is the use of advanced augmentative and alternative communication systems and assistive technology. This year Neil Young’s 23rd annual Bridge School Benefit at the Shoreline Amphitheater included No Doubt, Chris Martin, Sheryl Crow, Fleet Foxes, Wolfmother, Gavin Rossdale, Monsters of Folk, Jimmy Buffett, and Adam Sandler
Although it is not mandatory, most of the songs at the annual benefit are down acoustically.
Well, not literally but Wolfie 2.0 do give us a spirited version of Bush’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ plus an acoustic rendition of ‘Cosmic Egg’ and interview from TripleJ Radio, Australia.
