Biography

Melbourne band Dirt Farmer are beating the imminent Winter blues and unleashing their summer-laden self-titled EP with their third single Kick It.

Kick It follows singles Johnny Marble and Real Young which garnered support from triple j, RRR, FBi, PBS, community stations across Australia, combined with many nice words said in the blogosphere.

The EP was recorded by Leadbetter Productions (Sarah Blasko, Whitley) and Timothy West, and mixed by Leadbetter Productions and Steve Schram (Little Red, The Vasco Era, Eagle & the Worm, San Cisco) and mastered by Exchange Mastering UK.

After burning their banjos in Albury, Dirt Farmer formed in March 2010 and got together to unleash their own brand of laid-back, swagger driven Alt-Country Rock ’n Roll that has seen them develop into one of the most exciting bands in the Melbourne music scene.

The past few months have also seen Dirt Farmer share the stage with the likes of Husky, Alpine, The Rubens, Caitlin Park, The Fearless Vampire Killers, The Paper Kites, Tim Hart (Boy & Bear), The Gin Club, Snakadaktal and Hayley Couper.

Here's what some nice folks have had to say about Dirt Farmer:
"Singer Stu Barlow (ex-Lisa Mitchell) uses endearingly chaste soda-pop imagery (movie marathons, photobooths) to tell of an unsteady, nascent romance. Delivered in his dreamy, sad-eyed tenor, the whole thing goes down real sweet and easy." - Darren Levin (Mess + Noise)

"This is a cute, polished lounge rock tune that unravels at a casually hip pace, Really great work from this new Melbourne 5-piece" - Simone (Beat)

“If Oh Mercy were traveling hobos, they might sound something like this. It's slightly lo-fi, but that gives this song its extra layer of personality. Awesome work”. – Dom Alessio (Triple J)
