Batpiss - Weatherboard Man     Rock, Garage, Punk 25/02/2017
Melbourne dirge-rock champions BATPISS are shoving the social and political dimensions back into Australian rock music with confronting new song ‘Weatherboard Man’. They’ll be testing it out on the road soon.
'Weatherboard Man’ is one intense and powerful song. It sees the trio channel a new and arresting style that owes a significant debt to the intensity of fellow bastions of Australian grot-rock. Produced and mixed by Gareth Liddiard of The Drones, within you'll find grit, regret and ire, a vital, unhinged guitar-driven narrative...

Smoking Martha - What's Her Name     Rock, Punk 25/02/2017
Like the smoldering heat from a well-tended fire, the rock-punk outfit known as Smoking Martha has the intensity to scorch your best shirt but the discretion to spare your eyebrows.
“What's her name? Gives the listener the feeling of the controlled chaos in the obsessor's mind- whether it's the ‘if you knew me you would love me’ celebrity stalker or the imagined cheating of a lover who they have never actually met! Obsession is a dark and wild ride!”

Evol Walks - Tear it Down     Rock, Metal 24/02/2017
Hard, heavy hitting rock and roll fronted by fiery redhead Leah Martin-Brown.
'Tear it Down' was penned out of frustration towards the current, International political climate. The track features frenetic guitar riffs and biting lyrics making it the perfect piece of protest music for the new generation.

2016 was huge year of releases for Big League, now they're keeping the power on with 'Maybe She's Bored With It', the first single from their forthcoming album.
S**t-hot power pop! Travis and Marie's vocals cooperate and fight on 'Maybe She's Bored With It', but sound great together as always.

Beloved Elk - Distractions     Rock, Grunge, Punk, Garage 18/02/2017
Amy Wright and Tina Nguyen are Beloved Elk – a force of emotive post rock born out of a passion for sonic experimentation and performing.
‘Distractions’ is the first single released, an appropriate taster of the album given how the track perfectly encapsulates the emotion in the recordings. Nguyen’s drumming has become a key talking point for the band and on this particular track, it heightens the song’s vulnerability.

It is rare to find a band who are a force of nature right from their outset. Forging their own sound, Mirrors are a force to be reckoned with.
"In a world that seems to be driven by acts of greed, ego and self-righteousness, it's imperative to find those friends and family who bring you home, centre you. The "Fools Paradise" EP is about that journey to find happiness in yourself and with those important people in your life."
