Rice Is Nice

Sort by: Date Artist
Angie - A Ring     Rock, Acoustic, Folk 24/02/2017
One of Sydney's most exciting musicians, whose guises include Circle Pit, Southern Comfort, Ruined Fortune and Straight Arrows, Angie is back with her 3rd solo LP titled ‘Shyness’.
Moody and introspective, 'A Ring' strikes a different tone to Angie’s previous work. Where Free Agent was a fuzzy, lo-fi, electric guitar driven affair, ‘A Ring’ is a warm, enveloping and highly emotive acoustic number.

"An Australian classic is born.” - Pilerats​. 'Boys Night' AKA 2016's Song of the Damn Year doesn't represent some seismic political shift or even thematic turn-of-face for our always-been-woke-and-also-always-had-a-face hero; rather, it represents a cool party zone rarely explored via sweet synthy vibes and Bandcamp compatibility.

Enter Den: A post-punk group from Sydney formed in 2014 by Michael Grossman, Steven Hicks, Tomas Nunez and Michael Hassett.
