Hey Geronimo - Mutant     Rock, Pop, Atmospheric, Funk 03/04/2017
Hey Geronimo are one of the country’s most innovative purveyors of warped indie-rock.“Mutant”, is the first taste of their upcoming sophomore album due for release later this year.
Mutant” is an anecdotal journey of personal embarrassment. As described by co-writer Pete Kilroy, the song details the unfortunate true story of the two times he met Courtney Barnett. Both times he was nervous, and both times he had too many drinks to settle those nerves.

Hana & Jessie-Lee - Eight Tonne Shackles     Country, Alternative Country, Soul, Swing 31/03/2017
Adelaide Alt-Country duo Hana & Jessie-Lee bring melodic hooks and twangy guitars that can transport you to a dive bar in Nashville while making you thirst for that next whiskey.
Much like the weight of these shackles is the weight of the story embedded in the track that reflects on someone being used by someone who already has a partner.

Oscar Key Sung - Shallow     Electronic, RnB, Pop 31/03/2017
Having gathered praise world-wide for his blend of genres, Oscar Key Sung's 'Shallow' will be the first look at material he has been working on between Australia and America.
This song is about relationships, inspired by my experiences and close friends around me who I have seen go through similar experiences and given council too. When you want to be with someone, up ahead there is the idea of the two of you and how you will be together.

Justine Bradley - Oriana     Jazz, Acoustic, Soul, Folk 24/03/2017
I am a musician, singer, songwriter, vocal teacher, voice coach, choir director, healer, creative artist etc. Currently in the Justine Bradley Band (16 years) who I made this album with.
We have been playing music together for 16 years, which has created a tremendous amount of respect, love and musical freedom. So we decided to record all tracks live in the studio, capturing that magic and add featured artists as required. This is the feature track describing aspects of life.

Other tracks by Justine Bradley:  Wonder  -  Cry For Mercy
Kate Lush - Pack It Up     Blues/Roots, Soul 24/03/2017
Think Susan Tedeschi Grit, Freddy King Riffs, a dash of Aretha’s Soul & Bonnie Raitt’s harder rock edge. Great original songs, an outstanding band & that’s Kate Lush.
This is a fantastic upbeat cover of a Freddy King song called Pack It Up. Originally from his Burglar album, when Kate heard it she was inspired to do her own version.

Other tracks by Kate Lush:  River Flow  -  Good Good Love
The Cactus Channel & Sam Cromack - Do It For Nothing     Funk/Soul, Rock, RnB, Pop 23/03/2017
The Cactus Channel is a Melbourne based alt-soul group à la Menahan Street Band, Badbadnotgood & Unknown Mortal Orchestra. New EP with Sam Cromack out this April!
Do It For Nothing, also the title of the EP, is the lip biting R&B flavoured track on the release. The long form verses build to a climax in the chorus, complimenting Sam's super melodic and earworm melody. Slow dance floor banger.

Luke Million - Back to the Rhythm     Electronic, Funk 21/03/2017

Professor Paul - flo     Hip Hop, Funk 21/03/2017
Born Paul Thomas Hillier, my alias is Professor Paul and I am a rapper/producer from Brisbane, Australia. Currently 19.
My second single 'flo' came about early one morning, as I jumped out of bed. Inspired heavily by 'Dang!' (Mac Miller & Anderson Paak.) the bass line moves, horns are eminent, and I been dancing ever since I programmed those drums.
Might not be ya thing but I love it.

Spectoral & Martiln - Without You     Funk/Soul, Chill, Electronic, Soul 21/03/2017
Spectoral is a singer-songwriter producer influenced by soul, alternative RnB, but also heavily inspired by the fuzzy, weathered, nostalgia-driven downtempo of Boards of Canada and the early 2000s.
Treading that beautiful line between alt-RnB and weathered downtempo, the Melbourne producer's soaring single is a stand-out example of the 2017 zeitgeist: heartbreak and hi-hats. One for the playlists, definitely.

The Seven Ups - The Aviator     Funk/Soul, Funk, World 21/03/2017
Blending infuences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street Funk, The Seven Ups are the original 7-piece party band out of Melbourne.

Geia is a renowned singer/songwriter, guitarist, didgeridoo player and influential figure in the development of contemporary Indigenous music. He writes music of bravery and beauty, telling Aboriginal life in Australia.
This is a song about home but also my concerns about the environmental destruction. Indigenous people respect the land and lived in harmony with the Earth for thousands of years. The world is learning that First Nations People are the leaders in protecting the land not destroying it.

Other tracks by Joe Geia:  Freedom West Papua  -  Funky Didj
MAYA - What After Now     Funk/Soul, Chill, Electronic 13/03/2017
MAYA’s music is progressive. Conforming to conventions only when it serves the emotional integrity of the song. Her sound stems deeply and directly from her voice, sublime groove and soul.
Mixed and produced by Haxx, the beats groove hard, tipping the hat to hip-hop classics, and jazz style vocal stacks to contrast and enthral. MAYA’s music is progressive. Conforming to conventions only when it serves the emotional integrity of the song.

Captain Dreamboat - Modern Love     Funk/Soul, RnB, Jazz, Soul 10/03/2017
The soul/R&B/jazz-inspired quintet, Captain Dreamboat are a formidably tight force able to achieve complex sonic concepts in the studio as well as ad lib impromptu creations on the live stage.
‘Modern Love’ is textually intricate with fragile smooth keys and fingerpicking on the guitar that are reminiscent of wind chimes and a harp. It grooves with an afro-cuban drum pattern and cool bursts of smooth horns in between Fanaika's unmistakable vibrato and crooning tone.

New Venusians unique sound has developed through drawing influence from the lush sounds of synthesisers, gritty washed out guitars, hip hop inspired grooves, delicate harmonies at times reminiscent of Jazz.
‘Game Change’ sees New Venusians taking a few twists and turns, with opening soul-fueled minimalist grooves paving the way for a midway guitar-induced break that builds to a crescendo of synths and percussion. Layered with dreamy vocal hooks and an undeniably funky bass-line that buoys the song along.

Baldwins are an eight-piece progressive-soul band from Sydney, Australia. Turning the rhythmic groove of neo-soul/hip-hop, lush harmony of jazz and rock energy into an unconventional sound that's entirely their own.
'Dirty Sheets' is about the journey we take through the exhilaration of love and lust. The excitement pumping through your body; the butterflies lifting you; a lover's touch melting you in an instant... Then comes a moment when that's stripped away - leaving you confused whether it was really there.

Based out of Melbourne, BIG WORDS have developed a huge cult following due to their incredibly strong live show, and have a backstory which sees them originate from humble beginnings.
