John Dowler has been a mainstay of Australian independent pop music since the late 70s with his acts such as Young Modern, The Zimmermen and now the Vanity Project.
Billy's Pizza is the first track to be released from the forthcoming album, “12 Stitches”. It’s a guitar-driven slow burn, detailing the ups and downs in the relationship between two star crossed lovers set against the claustrophobic backdrop of smalltown New South Wales (or Victoria).

Warmer - Get So High I Can’t Get Down     Pop, Alternative, Indie 07/11/2019
Warmer is the singer-songwriter project of John Encarnacao and this EP is a taster from the Wooden Box With Strings LP, released by Half a Cow in March 2020
“Get So High” is the first single from the Warmer album Wooden Box With Strings. Recorded in Hobart with David Carter, it rides a wave of acoustic guitar, gradually picking up backing vocals, vibraphone, Casio, and percussion. It’s a song of sun, of jumping up and down, catchy as hell if not entirely predictable (like all the best pop songs).

Other tracks by Warmer:  Sore Knowledge  -  Cold Diamond Armchair” (4-track demo)

Nic Dalton - Way Out Jim #2     Pop 09/12/2018
Nic Dalton, has been in many bands such as the Plunderers and Sneeze, but is most at home recording his psychedelic pop songs on his Tascam 244 four track machine.
Way Out Jim #2 is a faster version than the one originally released in 1992 by Nic's band Godstar. This one features Smudge drummer Alison Galloway. The song is about not seeing the German singer live when she toured Australia in the mid-80s in case you were disappointed.

Key Out - Nameless town     Pop, Atmospheric, Rock 06/10/2018
Sydney alt-pop three-piece: Paddy Haid on guitar, Saskia Clapton on bass and Rohan Geddes on the drums have recorded their debut album What (Do) You See, produced by J Walker.
Key Out's unusual dynamics are illustrated in the first single off the What (Do) You See album, Nameless town. A locomotive beat and off kilter bassline set the scene. Layered melodies and counter-melodies hover long enough to catch the listener’s ear before retreating into silence or dissonance.

Neo-Magics - Feel It Still     Rock, Garage 20/08/2018
The Neo-Magics premise is modern songs done 60s garage rock style so you could say that the Neo-Magics, who hail from Sydney, are stuck in the past.
A cover of recent world-wide smash hit "Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man done in a very October 1965 way. Neo-Magics know only one way to play and that's the sounds of yesterday.

The Likes Of You are a Sydney based musical collective based around singer/songwriter Paul Scott, ex-Montana and New Zealand's Pop Mechanix.
Superstar Housewife might be Paul Scott's subconscious response, half a century later, to The 'Stones 'Mothers Little Helper' - a nervous meltdown amongst the appliances.
