Caiti Baker - Make Your Own Mistakes     Pop, Swing, Jazz, Soul 26/01/2017
Caiti writes songs about what she knows and feels, sings with her guts and soul and unashamedly performs the hell out of them.
'Make Your Own Mistakes' is Caiti's belief about how you don’t need to be judged or told what to do if someone thinks you're going about it the wrong way. Caiti's vocals are sung with attitude over fat double bass, trad-meets-hiphop drums, crunchy guitar samples, and a killer horn section.

From Melbourne, the group is a collaboration of two artists who've been around the traps for many years as solo artists, and have come together to compliment one another's style.
A track true to its heart, the self titled single is the second from eclectic musicians Crimson Heart, talking about relationships and how they are everything from hard work, fantastic, frustrating, but no doubt, worth fighting for.

New Venusians - Get Along     Funk/Soul, Soul 25/01/2017
New Venusians unique sound is influenced from the lush sounds of synthesisers, to gritty washed out guitar sounds, hip hop inspired grooves and delicate harmonies at times reminiscent of Jazz.
'Get Along' is an anthem for those who are frustrated and confused by the intimate relationships they are in. Whilst on the surface it seems that solutions can be easy, they often aren’t. The song explores that idea and leaves the listener with an ironically easy hook ‘Get Along’.

Cameron Avery - Wasted On Fidelity     Rock, Soul 20/01/2017
With his deep, husky baritone, Perth-bred/LA-based, Cameron Avery harnesses the dark power and humor of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks.
The second cut off his debut solo album, ‘Wasted on Fidelity’ is a wry and swinging glimpse into the debauched haze following a failed relationship.

Dave Graney and Clare Moore. Moodists - Coral Snakes - mistLY. Straight out of Melbourne. Vintage rock musicians out on their own.
Bass straight out of 70's reggae studio. Clean guitar lines straight out of a televised marquee moon. A swinging ride cymbal beat and a chorus of dive bombing electric guitar pick burns. Recorded and mixed at the Ponderosa by Dave Graney December 2016.

Dave Graney- guitars,bass,keys,vocal.
Clare Moore - drums,percussion,keys.

Koshowko - The Giver     Pop, Funk, Reggae, Rock 17/12/2016
Koshowko is the brainchild of Polish born, Melbourne based producer Martin K, also known for his releases under the Philosophy Of Sound moniker on Discotexas.
An ode to Xmas, the track tells a highly unusual story of the one and only Santa, but that’s not the only interesting part. Quite astonishingly, the track features input from musicians located across three continents who have never met face-to-face and worked through the cloud collaborating service Ohm Studio.
