Zela Margossian Quintet - Ceasefire     Ethnic Multicultural, Ambience, Jazz, Instrumental 29/11/2018

With bounding progressions and interjecting instrumentals, Ceasefire is the second single off Transition – a richly textured progressive world jazz album with heavy Armenian influences.

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."

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.

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.
