Vaudeville Smash - La Plume De Ma Tante     Funk/Soul, Pop 29/10/2018
A raucous journey down the synth and sax-laden highway that divides funk and disco, Melbourne's Vaudeville Smash have built their reputation on their explosive live shows and infectious hooks.
La Plume de ma Tante is a bass popping, tongue in cheek, funk jam. It tells of the random encounter of 2 eccentric urbanites who have a very strange way of communicating with each other.

NO Straight LINE - Panorama     Funk/Soul, Instrumental, Jazz 27/10/2018
NO Straight LINE’S cornerstone is groove and originality. Their lyrics create an alternate world, with tinges of noir and veiled romanticism. The music glides easily through funk, jazz and R&B.
Basically a love song that views the redemptive nature of a strong relationship. The lyrics intertwine amorous and self-sacrificing feelings with nature's panorama. In the Sydney songwriter vein there is a reference to Sydney Harbour and a kookaburra. The music follows the uplifting theme of the lyrics. It is anthemic with an accessible hook.

Other tracks by NO Straight LINE:  Grey Rabbit  -  Two Tone Spice

With a scheduled festival spot on hold due to untimely rain, frustration quickly turned into the most wonderful & timely space.
