Sailmaker Are Set To Beg, Borrow and Steal


One of my favourite things about the internet is discovering new music. Over the past couple of years there have been hundreds of bands who have chosen to relase their music online for free. While it isn’t always good, it is nice to discover a new band and listen to their album or EP without forking out money I don’t have. But I’ll get to that later.

Sailmaker are a Sydney band who have come up with an interesting approach to releasing their music.  They are going to be relasing three EPs over the coming months, titled Beg, Borrow and Steal. The first EP Beg is due out at at the end of next month.

The third EP Steal will be avaliable as a free download to anyone who signs up to their mailing list, which you can do here:

Sailmaker make dreamy acoustic pop music that doesn’t sound like any other  particular band, although I can imagine fans of bands such as The Panics and Augie March enjoying their music.

The band are coming down to Melbourne and have a couple of shows coming up:

Friday 28th August Dum Dum Club Launch @ Spectrum, Sydney

Friday 18th September @ Ding Dong, Melbourne

Saturday 19th September @ WOW Inflation, Melbourne

Saturday 17th October @ Spectrum, Sydney (EP Launch)
