Wesley Fuller's Forthcoming Fivepopper + Hurricane Fighter Plane

Early this morning (5:43 A.M., for you exactophiles), we were notified that Melbourne glamodpsychpopper Wesley Fuller is set to release his five-song EP, Melvista, via 1965 Records this coming July 8. Thanks to the ever-active Nathan Ford, we were able to share the title song with you approximately . . . no, holy shite, EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TODAY!!! Karma? Kismet? All-around good klean living? Yeah, probably.

Anyway, if you missed it, you can go back to that previous post or you can listen and download it via the triple j unearthed widget below. This is only our second post to incorporate triple j widgetry, so if you missed those fab songs by Adelaide band The Arch Menaces, click here to unearth 'em.

We also posted another fab Wesley Fuller song courtesy of The Active Listener's superb covers comp, Nuggets 2 Revisited, viz.:

You've probably been asking yourself, "pp, just who was it notified you at 5:43 A.M. today?" Well, it was Alix Weymouth of Wasted Youth PR. And Alix didn't just stop at notifying us, oh, no, far from. He also let us hear the following cut off the forthcoming Wesley Fuller EP, Melvista.

So thank you, Alix, for everything! You are our new best friend who doesn't actually know us and, if you play your cards right, probably never will.

Finally - and we do hope this post hasn't gone on too long - we want to post some fabulous tuneage from the aforementioned Wesley Fuller's previous band, the poetically named Hurricane Fighter Plane. We got on a little HFP kick probably about a year ago or so today, and bought everything we could, which unfortunately wasn't very much quantitatively but thrilled us deeply qualitatively. So here's what we found and bought:

We don't usually "dig" videos all that much, but Wesley and the  "Plane" made some we do deeply "dig." So here are a few of them. (Update: Thanks to the prompting of longtime visitor J. B. Goode, we found free and legal downloadables for "Aftermath" and "Tell No Lies." See below and/or click the songtitles.)

"Aftermath" is downloadable here at the late band's blog.

"Tell No Lies" is also downloadable at the aforementioned bandblog.

Oh, and (blushing), almost forgot: here's the video for "Melvista."

I'm awfully glad you asked about this, bgoode, for it pushed me to dig deeper. I put the links into the blogpost but will also mention here you can download "Tell No Lies" and "Aftermath" at the Hurricane Fighter Plane blog. If I find more, I'll let you know.

Excellent post Powerpopulist, I've only just discovered Wesley Fuller, and appreciate all the work and research you've done here. More power to you.
