The Desert Sea - How To Bleed     Rock, Blues, Psychedelic 15/10/2018
Groove, riffs and inspirational lyrical content… the makings of an amazing rock anthem by Sydney band The Desert Sea.
How To Bleed was recorded and produced by the band’s fill in drummer and good friend, Lucius Borich, (COG) in his Byron Bay recording studio earlier this month. Diving straight into a heavy bass groove, How To Bleed quickly takes form with a somewhat ‘classic rock’ style introduction. Clearly influenced by the likes of QOTSA and Kingswood.

Fight Ibis - Red Door     Rock, Psychedelic 26/09/2018
Fight Ibis, named Triple J Feature Artist in 2017, have had quite the introduction to the national scene, popping up on industry radars with a steady release of punchy singles.
Eclectic Sunshine Coast Indie Rock act FIGHT IBIS are back from cosmic hibernation with new single 'Red Door', announcing a 9 date East Coast Tour next month.

Hobo Magic - Sonic Sword     Rock, Psychedelic, Experimental 04/09/2018
Hobo Magic deliver a unique brand of heavy psychedelic Rock'n'Roll kicking out fresh groove-laden jams spawned from the embers of the kings that riffed before them.
'Sonic Sword' could be seen as the punchiest and most 'straight down the line' track on the upcoming album release, encapsulating the backbone of lyrical content that carries on through previous releases but of a more personal nature. Messages of living a life free from the constant worry and wanting of money and material possessions, open mindedness and acceptance.

Cheap Fakes - Dust And Bones     Funk/Soul, African, Ska, Psychedelic 04/07/2018
Cheap Fakes magically weave seductive brass lines through intricate melodies and infectious grooves. Infused with elements of Ska, Funk and something that can only be described as late-night Cactus-Jazz.
The band heard a story about an ANZAC war grave site that was found. The stand out quote “it was right outside our window but if we’d never found it then their remains would be forgotten like dust & bones”. Layered and steeped in african afro beat styles. It’s one of the bands favourite tunes from the album.

Hobo Magic - Frostbite     Rock, Psychedelic 11/05/2018
Hobo Magic sling a unique brand of psychedelic Rock'n'Roll madness, groovy and heavy. These are fresh sounding jams, spawned from the embers of the kings that riffed before them.
Frostbite is probably the heaviest track on our album and features some cool dynamic shifts throughout. We came up with the idea for the lyrics while in Melbourne discovering a cheap moonshine cider called Frosty Jacks. Its a play on getting drunk and feeling the effects of the "frostbite".
