VulgarGrad - Alyosha     Ethnic Multicultural, Jazz, World, Rock 15/03/2019
VulgarGrad arose in Melbourne in late 2004 out of a collaboration between some of Australia’s best musicians in underground ethnic styles.
The story of the titular hero: Alyosha, the hard-drinking, broad-shouldered Odessa thief. VulgarGrad has stolen this obscure song from the repertoire of 1930s Romania-based Russian tango singer Pyotr Leshchenko, but their version is a full brass-band ska riot.

Other tracks by VulgarGrad:  Wolf Hunt  -  The Ballad of an Emperor
VulgarGrad - I Remember     Ethnic Multicultural, Jazz, World, Rock 06/02/2019
VulgarGrad delivers music with style, raucous menace, stripy shirts and grim smiles. Since 2004 they have been stalwarts of the live music and festival scene and amassed a dedicated fanbase.
'I Remember' is a psychedelic Soviet prison ode to dear mama, who always warned them not to hang out with thieves. It's big, bad, brass band sounds with grit, grunt and rowdy swashbuckling vocal vibes to boot. The song also features in the soundtrack of new anarchic Australian movie Judy & Punch, which just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Avi Misra - Usha     Ethnic Multicultural, Electronic, Rock 21/01/2019
Born in Tokyo, Raised in Delhi, Based in Melbourne. Singer-Songwriter-Producer Avi Misra melds east and west, old and new into his own brand of independent music.
The title track of Misra's third is a paean to the Vedic goddess of 'dawn' Usha and paints the different shades of the sky before and after sunrise. A bluesy laid back groove reminiscent of The Doors painting the sky before dawn transitioning into an optimistic dance section at the stroke of sunrise. Cinematic songwriting in Rajasthani electro rock.

Other tracks by Avi Misra:  Ocean  -  Toxic City
Avi Misra - Old Bombay     Ethnic Multicultural, Electronic, Rock, Psychedelic 10/01/2019
Born in Tokyo, Bred in Delhi, Based in Melbourne. Singer-Songwriter-Producer Avi Misra melds east and west, old and new into his own brand of independent music.
Old Bombay is a chilled out track that paints a carved picture of the Art Deco streets of Old Bombay. saxophone smoky sounds meet rustic Rajasthani folksy dhol and alghoza sounds before the intensity changes on the second chorus and the perceived love song changes into a murder ballad.

Avi Misra - Age Of Kali     Ethnic Multicultural, Electronic, Rock, Industrial 08/01/2019
Born in Tokyo, Bred in Delhi, Based in Melbourne. Singer-Songwriter-Producer Avi Misra melds east and west, old and new into his own brand of independent music.
A Rajasthani gypsy folk meets electro-rock anthem that comments on the state of the world as seen through the Indian folk concept of ‘Kalyug’ - an age that has taken what was once pure, pristine and good and corrupted it inside out. Powerful bluesy vocals/guitar on a driving electronic beat meets the hypnotic sounds of the kamaycha, Alghoza and Khartal.

Xylouris White - Only Love     Ethnic Multicultural, Folk, Punk 07/02/2018
A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White, the ruggedly visionary duo formed of Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White (The Dirty Three).
"A rollicking yet passionate stomp of a song featuring White’s propulsive drumming, which gives room for Xylouris’ incredibly dexterous, heavy metal-like lute, an infectious hook, and sonorous baritone, singing lyrics in Greek ... possessing a swooning and urgent passion, the song reveals the duo’s mischievous, free-flowing improvisational-like nature."
