Eran James - Woman     Funk/Soul, Blues 13/07/2012
Eran was taken on by the world’s biggest record company at 12 years old. His interpretations of Soul Classics won admiration and a growing following in and around Australia.
"Woman" is about living in a world of people telling Eran what to do, where to do it and how to be and act. Eran has been 'bossed around' his whole life, until he fell into the arms of a Woman, he understood finally what life and love is about.

Dukesy and The Hazzards - Hey There Little Lady     Blues/Roots, Funk 10/07/2012
Twisting their way through blues and funk ‘Dukesy and The Hazzards’ combine a firm respect for the traditional side of blues with their love of groove and improvisation.
A feel good, funky groove based track with a hint of a New Orleans drum feel. A few solos thrown in but a catchy 'Hey There Little Lady' hook to keep you dancing.

Shelly Hughes - Looking Glass     Funk/Soul, Blues, Chill, Funk 05/07/2012
Shelly's mellifluous style is eclectic and unique, instantly recognizable as seasoned pro. Drawing on a wide range of timbres and influences she crystallizes her broad tastes in a unique powerhouse.
It's a well trodden path: looking inside yourself and trying to find the beauty that others always say they see. Without arrogance or ego, just truthful honesty, to help you get on with life. I wish you much luck, with this offering; lush trombones and rich vocal harmony. Go forth...

The Cactus Channel - Emanuel Ciccolini     Funk/Soul, Instrumental 02/07/2012
Hear that sound? Raw, loose and nasty funk recorded straight to analogue tape. It’s just like the old days, but so new it’s sporting a badass teenage moustache.
Named for guitarist Lewis Coleman’s Italian grandfather, you can imagine the original Emanuel was a very bad man. This is some sinister, high-octane car chase funk. Think of the getaway scene in a heist movie set in Napoli circa 1974 and you get the idea. Ciao!

Band of Frequencies - All I've Found     Blues/Roots, Soul, Funk 01/06/2012
"Band of Frequencies dabbles in the whole pallet of genres; Bluesy rock drips away into skull-melting lullabies that pitter-patter like rain into grooves that inevitably wander off somewhere else altogether."
All I've found is a song written to 60's footage by one of surfings greatest pioneers & innovators George Greenough. Living in the moment. "If i don't go now, I will never know."

Let’s not beat around the bush, this is makeout music. This B-side is as smooth as the A-side is tuff. The lowdown tempo and fat drums take it where it needs to go. Who knew teenagers could do it this slow?

Stella Angelico and The Switch - Mister     Funk/Soul, Psychedelic, RnB 14/03/2012
Stella Angelico is a woman who sings because she must, her voice and violent hip shaking performance is an explosion of the untamed feminine.
'Mister' is a handclappin', foot tappin' soul-driven track which could have come right out of 1967. Angelico's vocal are both raw and delicate. She is fierce and fiery in her delivery, evidently a woman you would not want to mess with.
