Alex the Astronaut (Alex Lynn) is a 21 year-old Australian folktronica songstress who currently resides in New York. The wondrous storyteller has today released her brand new single ‘Rockstar City’.
'Rockstar City' is a postcard home to my Mum about my first gig in New York City. I signed up to play at the famous Bitter End, where all the folk stars started out in the 1960s. This song's about taking everything in and celebrating the little wins.

Rackett - Ready or Not!     Rock, Pop, Experimental, Punk 24/02/2017
RACKETT are Bec, Jessamyn and Ally. They live together in a derelict mansion, spending most nights each week making loud and experimental pop rock in a room under the house.
Front-woman Bec explains, “There’s a voice within that lures us to break rules. It's the voice inside our heads that whispers 'it's my way!’ The song is a 'f*** you' to the headmaster telling us what we can and can't do... Let's be naughty! Ready or not, here we come!”

“The aim was to write a song that people would immediately dance to – I hope they do”. The band recorded the track at Forbes St Studios with JP Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Client Liaison), with Mastering by Joe LaPorta (The Weeknd, David Bowie, The Naked and Famous).

Alex L'Estrange - Nothing To Hide     Rock, Pop 03/12/2016
Exceptional young songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist Alex L’Estrange has today announced his new single Nothing To Hide, a gritty mystery of a track lifted from his debut EP, Auchenflower.
'Nothing To Hide' is hazy, evoking a nebulous feeling of early Tame Impala, or even The Beatles of Revolver times. L’Estrange’s voice sits defiantly atop an intoxicating, guitar-driven instrumental that pulls towards the magnetic, soaring chorus.

Castlecomer - Judy     Rock, Pop 22/08/2016
Castlecomer are one of the hardest working bands in Australia. Constantly touring built the band a dedicated fan base and turned their live show into a tight, electric, impressive experience.
I wrote 'Judy' as a way to release a big work week listening to really dark evidence in court. The groove and the hook had been in my head for weeks but I just needed something to sing about, and that’s where the character of Judy helped.

Miles de Carteret - Honey     Electronic, Atmospheric, Downbeat, Rock 07/05/2016
Miles de Carteret is the Melbourne-based collaboration between singer/songwriter Miles de Carteret and producer/drummer Danny Barwick.
‘Honey’ is constructed on a bed of muted guitar playing, and fleshed with soft synthesiser pads, it's lulling and hypnotic. As Barwick says, ‘…we wanted to recreate the feeling of a diary entry, to try our best to connect directly with people and move them from place of honesty’.

Toma says, "We wanted those more organic elements, so insisted on tracking live drums.”
