The Milkmen - State of Mind     Folk, Acoustic, Roots, Country 20/09/2018
Driven by the gritty vocals of Conor Mcloughlin, The Milkmen tap a vein of dirty acoustic rock with masterfully layered songs that delve deep into the heavier realities of life.
Conor says of the track, "State Of Mind is one of the quickest songs I've ever written and was done months after the initial tracking of the album, so it was the last song recorded. Usually when I write love songs they are very personal. State Of Mind is more universal, a song of hope for people looking for love.”

Fields - Neverland     Folk, Acoustic, Pop 14/09/2018

Navigating the waters between the ascendency of love and the crushing depths of heartbreak, Fields delivers raw emotion made beautiful. Through her poetic, dreamy lyrics, Neverland switches between adulthood and childlike wonderment – delving into an affair of the heart and its full spectrum of feelings and consequence..impassioned and volcanic, yet perfectly harnessed and controlled. It is a beautiful song.

These Winter Nights write overwhelmingly beautiful songs. The Perth based alt-folk band create a sound that raises goose bumps and deliver a live performance that is nothing short of captivating.
No You Didn't Love is about the push and pull of chaotic love, a story about the falling in and the falling apart. Entirely self-produced by These Winter Nights in their bush-land home studio, the recording is raw and intimately captured and serves a reflection of their heartfelt sound.

Twelve Ballet - Hello, How Are You?     Folk, Retro, Blues, Jazz 14/09/2018
Twelve Ballet is Brother and sister, Benjamin & Samantha Hope. They have a delicate and stripped back style that makes you feel they are only talking to you.
It was just Sam and I sitting at the piano, and it shaped the rest of the album. It can be such and odd question "Hello, How Are You?". You almost have to decide how you are going to respond, usually though it's just, "Doing Fine".

How are you?

Jay Le Kat - Home     Folk, Pop, Acoustic 12/09/2018
Formerly half of the electronic duo GRRL PAL, Perth-based Jay le Kat has reinvented herself, taking a new turn musically and getting back in touch with her dreamy folk pop.

The Killjoys - So It's Goodbye     Folk, Pop 06/09/2018
If you took The Sundays, Stereo Lab and Fairground Attraction mixed them into a can of paint, then got Morrissey to brush it on canvas you would get the Killjoys.

Peace Love and Goats is an instrumental hybrid of 60's surf banjo, Django Rhinehardt-esque guitar-shredding, rockabilly double bass soloing and feisty fiddle riffs, all wrapped up in a bluegrass veneer with a clap-along catchiness that defies categorisation. The title comes from the inscription on a wall clock in Greg Walker's Gippsland studio where it was recorded.
