Moaning Lisa - Comfortable     Rock, Grunge, Pop 13/09/2018

‘Off Into My Head’ is the latest single by Melbourne duo Dark Fair. Nobody likes reality. It’s full of obligations, promises, routine, nuclear goal setting, criticism and too many farewells. It’s a song about escaping off into your head and creating your own reality or obscurity....a blue sky, locked in coping strategy.

Donny Love - Dysfunctional Lovers     Rock, Soul, Jazz 05/04/2018
Donny Love are outsider icons of an underground detached. They’ve spent several years now brooding and maturing, mutating like discarded vegetables in the back of the refrigerator
Highlighting the complimentary sweet n sour songwriting team of Don Bill and Don Hog, with timeless Fender Rhodes lines bouncing along providing the grounds for Don Hog's nihilistic ramblings. Questioning the push-pull psychotic, paranoid melodramas of casual romance, the songs come to have a balance/contrast of sweet n sour.
