Mick Thomas - Most Of the Time (Feat. Ruby Boots)     Folk, Rock, Acoustic, Cover Version 22/02/2017
These Are the Songs is a lovingly crafted compilation spanning the past eighteen years and more of Mick Thomas’ creative life.
‘Most of the Time’ is originally from Bob Dylan’s Oh Mercy album. Far from being a poignant heartfelt testimony of troubled life, in this version Mick and Ruby give it a sparky new angle as the two protagonists compete in saying how little they miss the other.

Sean Heathcliff - Ordinary     Folk, Rock, Acoustic 22/02/2017
It’s been two long years since we’ve had the pleasure of releasing new music from Sean Heathcliff, fka Kagu.
‘Ordinary’ exhibits a move towards a more live and organic sound for Heathcliff, with acoustic drums and minimal instrumentation. A delicate space is created through Heathcliff’s bittersweet guitar melodies and effortlessly unique vocal. This new restrained style of composition highlights Heathcliff’s ability to create pop music in its purist form.

The Creases - Everybody Knows     Rock, Pop 26/01/2017
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.

Em Rusciano - Versions Of Me     Pop 23/11/2016
Em Rusciano made it to the final ten contestants on the second season of Australian Idol and is a successful stand-up comedian, radio presenter, published author and powerhouse live performer.
The uplifting, catchy tune is Em Rusciano's first foray into original songs, and was co-written and produced with Michael Paynter and Michael DeLorenzis, who comprise the Melbourne-based MSquared pop production duo. Em herself compares the song to a John Farnham-power-pop-anthem style.

Husky - Late Night Store     Folk, Rock 03/11/2016
After a year-long absence from Australian shores, Husky return with a swag of stories, a driving new single ‘Late Night Store’ and the exciting news of shows at year’s end.
The duo’s natural ability shines on ‘Late Night Store’, though sonically they’ve added visceral new colours to their palette. A striking blend of guitars and keys are propelled forward by a steady groove, whilst Husky’s vocal floats along effortlessly; his poetic lyrics creating a twisted story that feels strangely relatable.

Slum Sociable - Name Call     Electronic, Jazz, Soul 03/11/2016
Slum Sociable are Edward Quinn (production/keys/guitar) and Miller Upchurch (vocals/percussion). A Melbourne-based duo steeped in groove, that glide through the intersection of soul, hip-hop and electronica.
‘Name Call’ is the first cut from the subversive duo’s awaited debut album and adds to their already impressive repertoire, which includes single ‘Anyway’, and ‘Apartment’ from debut EP, TQ. It takes a firm hold on the hips and guides left to right to left in a hypnotic sway.

Mansionair - Easier     Electronic, Chill 27/10/2016
Sydney trio with a flowing energy that weaves and transitions beautifully, Mansionair have a unique way of writing songs with incredible production.
Easier features soft and restrained instrumentation that evolves into a gliding chorus, before imploding into a synth heavy expression of raw emotion. Written in the living room of producer/guitarist Lachlan’s house, Easier was loosely inspired by a scene from Sofia Coppola’s seminal film, ‘Lost In Translation’.

Dan Sultan - Magnetic     Rock, Soul, Pop 06/10/2016
Dan Sultan is a critically acclaimed indigenous Australian singer-songwriter from Melbourne.
A piano flutters, and a string section swells from the delicate melody. Then a choir of voices bursts forth: “God, help me!” So begins Dan Sultan’s new single, ‘Magnetic’. A fierce attack of soul-pop, as interested in delivering unfiltered emotion as it is a charging chorus.

British India - I Thought We Knew Each Other     Rock, Pop 13/09/2016
Following its premiere on triple j, British India's new single ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’, takes that moment and holds it up to the light.
Layered in a film of shimmering strings and guitars, and with an unrelenting break-beat to match, the hushed intensity of the song’s verses make way for the dizzying rush of a mile high chorus. Indeed, ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’ sees the band’s effortless intensity honed razor sharp.

The single is complemented with a visually spectacular video, shot on Archie's mother's country, the lands of the Gunditjmara peoples in south-west Victoria.
