Cirrus Crown - The Hardest Truth     Alternative, Metal, Rock 17/01/2020
Cirrus Crown, a weather phenomenon associated with thunderstorms, is a metaphor that perfectly encapsulates the band's energetic, dynamic, heavy and ambient music.
The Hardest Truth opens with a sinister voice that says "Hear No, See No, Speak No Evil" that sets the tone for the single. A killer guitar riff is accompanied by a rhythmic powerhouse, and makes way for a spacious verse featuring a beautiful vocal take. This single is a master-class in dynamics, and will captivate from start to finish.

Fovndlings - Hank Williams Funeral Sonnet     Alternative, Indie, Rock 17/01/2020
Hailing from Walcha NSW, Fovndlings play original cowpunk, marked by driving beats and lyrics exploring themes of friendship, loss, and landscape from the ragged edges of our cities and towns.
Hank Williams' Funeral Sonnet is a classic piece of Walchan cowpunk with driving drums and neo-country guitar reminiscent of Johnny Cash in one his more frenetic moods. The lyrics, which rumour has it, were found by the band in the garage sale offerings of a Baptist preacher, explore the desolation of life on the ragged edges of our provincial towns.

Georgia Fair - wasting time     Alternative, Folk 17/01/2020
Georgia Fair is a long honest conversation, with sharp truths that sparkle and then disappear. With their dreamy storytelling and atmospheric landscapes they make the everyday seem like Fantasia.
There's a brutality to 'Wasting Time' that goes unsaid. The kick and the snare lash continuously as the lyric yearns for certainty 'I can only see so far into the future/I can only see so far into the haze'. The song in itself is an exorcism of illusion, cut mostly live in a converted tractor shed.

Other tracks by Georgia Fair:  mystery trip  -  slave to nothin'

In just under a decade, Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) have gone from a beloved psychedelic project to one of the most revered rock bands in the world.
