Waterford album launch in Landspeed Records

By 31 October 2011 11

The thinking hipster’s favourite obscure band, Waterford, launched their new album this lunchtime in Landspeed Records on Garema Place.

It’s such a glorious afternoon pretty much anything would work, but it appeared to be an excellent use of the space getting a healthy happy crowd in.

The CD is on sale at Landspeed for $15 and having it will make you cooler than people who do not have it..

Here’s a taste:

But a Canberra hipster is really just an outdated model of a Melbourne hipster.

Ironic then, that you living in Canberra makes you a hipster.

You’re doing it before it becomes cool.

I like these guys.

Good songs, good feel, good groove.

What? Living in Canberra makes you a hipster?

Reason #330 not to be living there anymore.

Generally speaking though the Melbourne hipster is a try hard wannabe wandering that grid of streets looking for everyone and secretly wishing they lived in Sydney.

Sriously though it was inteesting the last time I was in the Melbourne CBD there are almost no small take aways or independant shops.

Just big franchises and overpriced restaraunts. I couldn’t even find a decent Laksa.

Can’t have look very hard. And I take it you don’t live in Canberra if you’re talking about overpriced restaurants.

Meant to add that if they all want to live in Sydney then let them. Melbourne, and Canberra, would be better off without them.

Did you try the little arcades? Certainly the main shops are boring, but there are great cafes and boutiques off the main drag, and of course in Prahran, Brunswick, Northcote etc. I miss Melbourne every day I live in Canberra, even though I’m much too old to worry being cool. Of course Sydney (in the right areas) is more beautiful, but it’s more beautiful than lots of places! Restaurants in Canberra are more expensive for what you actually get than in Melbourne. And it’s still possible to buy a modest flat in Melbourne’s CBD for much less than Gungahlin, which is crazy.

Try Richmond for laksa.

I’m sure that’s true, I was only there a couple of days and was right in the middle of the CBD. I also experienced the wettest September day in Melbourne for 50 years so that and GF week may have had something to do with it.

You can’t be serious?

The one thing the city is known for is it’s “foodie” culture. As nauseating as that sounds.

The CBD alone is inundated with all kinds of amazing cheap eateries.

How could you have been in the CBD and not seen Chinatown?

Even Swanston St is littered with quality pho, dumplings and Thai joints.

For the best Laksa though you have to head up to Flemington.

Good on you RiotACT for picking up Waterford. They are one of my favourite bands. And I’m the antithesis of a hipster, if that counts for something in this conversation.
