Building on their bedrock of toe-tapping rhythm and blues, Major Tom & The Atoms have constructed a towering and lasting monument to the fallen angels of rock!
A toe-tapping, swaggering rhythm and blues romp which name checks all the respectable late greats: "We've passed the age of Jim Morrison, so we just paint his face. Cobain, Hendrix, Jones, Joplin..."

Money For Rope - Hole Like You (Radio Edit)     Rock 15/04/2014
Dancing one’s arse off is a rockeratti myth - rumours of rock-induced gyrations waft out of closed-door venues, seldom seen in the public bar. Money For Rope reject this history.
The Bowers and Money For Rope have reignited an age old idea, of doing a split ep where a new song from each band and a cover of each other is recorded (last year) and released (for Record Store Day), and now it's about to be launched (next month).

Bad//Dreems' journey from the Adelaide underground continues with the release of their brand new single 'Dumb Ideas', the product of a recent recording session with legendary producer Mark Opitz.

Residual is the result of trial, error and growth. With each member spending time in at least one hardcore band at one point.

Howling Bells - Slowburn     Rock, Pop 03/04/2014
Howling Bells return with their brilliant new single, Slowburn, on Birthday Records. Slowburn is the first single to be taken from Howling Bells’ forthcoming fourth album.
Slowburn was the first song we recorded for the new album, I feel it perfectly captures the immense conviction and passion the band have. The song explores the idea that some of us effortlessly glide to the surface, whilst some others simmer away quietly.”
