Munro Melano - Move To California     Pop, Electronic, Soul 09/11/2016
Melbourne based artist Munro Melano has been writing/recording and releasing for several years now - soulful grooved based music both solo and within a band dynamic.
It was written over the Melbourne winter. When the sky is grey, and days are short - cocooned in front of the heater. Only months before, I'd farewelled a number of friends who were moving to LA - one friend had just fallen in love, another was chasing the dream.

The Meltdown - Colours In The Sky     Funk/Soul, Soul, Country 09/11/2016
The Meltdown. It’s a bold, brassy, twangy steam train of bumping backbeats and swinging shuffles. Then there’s that voice. Sweet as honey.
From a band known for heavy dancefloor soul, Colours In The Sky marks a change - a piece of downtempo country soul evoking big skies and long roads. This finds Simon Burke’s honeyed voice at it’s most sensitive. Shades of Otis and Sam Cooke on a twangy southern tip.

Young Hysteria - Never Gonna Learn     Pop, Soul 03/11/2016
Musically diverse and otherworldly, Young Hysteria produces music that's cinematic — a love letter to the history of pop music, written from the lineages of dream pop, electronica and lo-fi.
“Never Gonna Learn” is that rare song that relaxes you, causes you to lose your breath momentarily, and transports you to another place. Beautiful and brilliant." — The Revue.

Other tracks by Young Hysteria:  No Time
Lonelyspeck - All My Skin on the Air     Electronic, Pop, Soul, Experimental 03/11/2016
Lonelyspeck is a bedroom producer / vocalist / songwriter from Adelaide who creates every element of their music on their own, fusing R&B and bass music, pop hooks and noise.
The track is an unexpectedly hooky piece of alternative-pop, drawing melodic inspiration from commercial radio as much as from bass music.

"The concept behind the track is that I want to be exposed and not hide my feelings even if they're awkward or seemingly trivial."

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Luke Penman, Radio Adelaide, Adelaide (SA)

Slum Sociable - Name Call     Electronic, Jazz, Soul 03/11/2016

Mo Louie - She Said     Electronic, Soul, Pop 02/11/2016
Mo Louie lives in a world where the soul and the artificial are intertwined. Her electro-pop/soul powered music comes from what she sees around her.
Mo Louie's debut single, ‘She Said’, is a playful take on an overthinking mind. Using a cluster of the artificial: electronic and synth production with a whirl of soulful vocal sounds, ‘She Said’ plays with the reality of what someone says verses the interpretation the mind creates.

San Cisco - SloMo     Pop, Rock, Funk 28/10/2016
Josh + Scarlett + Jordi + Nick. Long time pals from Fremantle, Western Australia. Playing tunes since 2009.
“We wanted to create a song that made people want to move” - Jordi. Mission accomplished – you can’t help but shimmy along from the start. However, in typical San Cisco fashion, a close listen of the tune reveals a complex tale of desire, burgeoning relationships and playing with fire.
