Samskara Radio - Can't Kill The Radio (Dan Konopka Remix)     Alternative, Electronic / Beats / Industrial, Indie, Pop 20/11/2019
Samskara Radio is Simon Marrocco’s electro-rock outfit. He enlisted Dan Konopka, who is the drummer and producer for Grammy award winning band OK Go, to create this intriguing EBM remix.
Can't Kill The Radio (Dan Konopka Remix) is a moody and alluring single with a hip-hop inspired beat, distant reverberating electric guitars and a catchy earworm chorus that may cause Stuck Song Syndrome. So be forewarned. A cool deep house electro drop towards the ending makes this track even more interesting.

Tiaryn - When I Go     Alternative, Soul, Hip Hop 20/11/2019
Tiaryn's raw and captivating vocals soar atop a warm, nostalgic bed of tape hiss, punchy drums, wailing electric guitars and watery rhodes. Classic songwriting meets neo soul and indie rock.
When I go is the torch bearer of 'Lilith' EP. The song immediately takes off with a driving beat, singing guitars and pulsating Rhodes. ‘This song is about finding the confidence to be who am underneath all my politeness.” There's an enticing momentum that seems to keep lifting, surprising you with key changes and a sense of growing hope.

Toxic Bears - Million Dollar Cult     Alternative, Rock, Indie 19/11/2019
Toxic Bears are an avant garage, experimental rock band out of Brisbane. Their music ranges from melodic hardcore to funk, jazz and Latin-infused alternative rock.
Trawling troughs of moneyed suburban isolation can yield spiritual and bodily riches for the leaders of new age movements. In Million Dollar Cult we lament the personal effects of such conversions via a head nodding track of our sleaziest funk rock.

Stalking Like Candy - Friedrich Nietzsche     Alternative, Rock, Experimental 18/11/2019
Stalking Like Candy is an art-rock assemblage lead by Dr J. The group impart their projects with a joyous uncertainty, twisting amongst multiple perspectives and patching together sonic impressions.
Friedrich Nietzsche equally delicate as it is harrowing as it illuminates Dr J’s PhD in political philosophy with nimble flute lines and maniacal incantations in a spacious mosh-pit, the backing vocals were recorded in the bunkers on Malabar Headland.

Imperials - Carolina     Alternative, Dance 15/11/2019
The group came together when Ingrid met Josh through mutual songwriting projects. Writing for others, they soon had a collection of songs when the vision for Imperials came to them.
Carolina is a bittersweet moment where you think you have it all until you snap out of it.

You do absolutely everything you can to make this person happy but realize you aren’t getting anything in return.

The more you try, the more you love, the more distant and indecisive that person grows.

4-piece alternative-pop/rock band from New South Wales’ Central Coast, wading through surf flavours and 80s New York garage sounds with pop melodies that soothe and stick.

A song idea inspired by their personal experiences with nurturing relationships and balancing all the different kinds of connections.

Tobias Wonderdog - Empty Hand     Alternative, Indie, Country, Rock 15/11/2019
Mat Weaven aka. Tobias Wonderdog, is an Australian singer/songwriter who began as a Trumpet player and ventured out of classical into indie rock. Well known for the single 'Not Bliss'.
'Empty Hand' picks up the pace a little and in a way reminds me of my previous project Upstream. It has the upbeat rock element coasting along after a sparkly intro. I have often wondered how there are so many people on earth but very few in happy relationships. A shortage of love you might say.

Gamjee - A Painter     Alternative, Folk, Rock, Pop 14/11/2019
With hardwired guitars, hiccuping grooves and spluttering synthesisers, Gamjee swing their angular pop/garage songs off their backs and unravel them to sing in a beaming and wobbly celebration.
A true story of a moment in Japan. It’s a narrative about a young lady who has travelled to the other side of the world, just after beginning an intense relationship with another woman. She was talking of missing her and the challenges of entering a new relationship with someone who’d never been with another woman before.

Other tracks by Gamjee:  Legacy Project  -  The Smallest Incidents

Sydney's MERE WOMEN play brooding, expansive post-punk. Their latest full length is the highly acclaimed 'Big Skies' album.

Valley Onda - Turtle     Alternative, Indie, Experimental, Electronic / Beats / Industrial 14/11/2019
Valley Onda are a highly evolved animal. Combined, the band's studio prowess and their organic musicality form something bold and unique that finds its power in subtlety, delicacy and tastefulness.
Turtle is a loose metaphor for a complex love song - a hard shell with a soft centre, retraction and self-protection, wisdom and self-belief - a slow and steady number about getting to know someone who seems so far away but is yearning to be touched.
