Ali Barter - Cigarette     Rock 10/02/2017
It's all familiar. But the ebbs and flows — the bold, uplifting highs and softly-tread lows — are another thing to feel. Ali Barter knows all about those pop-induced moods.
The melodic sway of 'Cigarette' conjures the puncturing experience of romantic invalidation (“I’m not the girl you wanted me to be”) with graceful command and rattling guitar.

Until recently, The Cactus Channel were easily introduced as integral members of the Soul-music scene in Melbourne. Well-known for their musicianship and compositional skills fundamental to making compelling instrumental music.
The first track of this collaborative EP treads a thin line between alt-soul and the best of indie pop, swimming in compelling atmospherics and deftly weaving Cromack’s rich, drawling vocal and disarming, meditative lyrics through the band’s typically intuitive arrangements.

The Jungle Giants - Feel The Way I Do     Pop, Rock, Electronic 03/02/2017

Caiti Baker - Make Your Own Mistakes     Pop, Swing, Jazz, Soul 26/01/2017
Caiti writes songs about what she knows and feels, sings with her guts and soul and unashamedly performs the hell out of them.
'Make Your Own Mistakes' is Caiti's belief about how you don’t need to be judged or told what to do if someone thinks you're going about it the wrong way. Caiti's vocals are sung with attitude over fat double bass, trad-meets-hiphop drums, crunchy guitar samples, and a killer horn section.

The Creases began with four mates in a basement in the Brisbane suburbs. Since then, they have had an acclaimed EP, a swag of popular singles and numerous sold-out tours.
The infectious flair of ‘Everybody Knows’ hits right from the opening chord. High energy drums propel the song forwards, guitars ring out endlessly and frontman Joe’s vocals ooze casual confidence, whilst the introduction of a choir and brass adds a new dimension to the band’s sound.

Born from late night bedroom jam sessions and honed in Melbourne's live music venues, the band has garnered a reputation for rich, poppy guitar melodies with propulsive rhythm.
‘French Press’, the title track of the band’s sophomore EP, is a Skype call between two brothers. The contrast of one gallivanting overseas, the other sitting in tedious comfort in an air-conditioned office. Featuring driving rhythms, charging drums and an addictive bass line.

Biscotti - Instamatic     Pop, Experimental 25/01/2017

Cameron Avery - Wasted On Fidelity     Rock, Soul 20/01/2017
With his deep, husky baritone, Perth-bred/LA-based, Cameron Avery harnesses the dark power and humor of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks.
The second cut off his debut solo album, ‘Wasted on Fidelity’ is a wry and swinging glimpse into the debauched haze following a failed relationship.
