After releasing the single, The Silly Fucking Thing that has landed him in the international spotlight, Sydney’s own Spookyland is pleased to release his highly anticipated ‘Rock and Roll Weakling’ EP, with an amazing hometown show planned at Goodgod!
A weave of blasting hooks and soft crevices, the title track steals all possible attention, offering temperamental riffs and emotional roller coasters in return. It is equally intense and fragile, with lyrics to match the rawness of the melody providing an unexpected balance in which to rest.
With praise coming in from Pitchfork and Frankie Magazine, and a recent signing to US label Canvasback (The Orwells, Grouplove, Alt-J) Spookyland is on the rise, and this could be the last time to catch him in such an intimate setting!

Goodgod favourites Astral People are proud to present DJ DODGER STADIUM (Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy) who are coming out to Australia on the back of the recent release of their debut album ‘Friend of Mine’!
From his (former) internet duo LOL Boys to his prolific solo work, Jerome LOL has been credited with introducing an early web-based sound/visual aesthetic, influencing the likes of Rihanna and Azealia Banks. Samo Sound Boy’s similar support of coast-to-coast club sounds has made him a favourite of Mykki Blanco, Cashmere Cat & Shlohmo plus publications from XLR8R to Vice.
Founding Body High together in 2011, the pair have pursued their unique and often bizarre club environment with releases from Todd Edwards, DJ Sliiink and DJ Funeral and showcases from SXSW to LA’s Boiler Room residency.
A collaboration between the label heads, DJ Dodger Stadium’s debut ‘Friend of Mine’ is enjoying critical approval, scoring a solid 8.0 from Pitchfork and props from The New Yorker. Built on forgotten RnB samples and the ‘hypnotic loneliness of Los Angeles’, the album represents a cross-genre influence from techno, house and beyond with the pair’s singular edge. To celebrate the duo are going to be hypnotising Goodgod with buddies Alba, Chris Barker, Huggz and Felix Lloyd. Whether you prefer the URL or IRL, this is one not to be missed…
