Broads - I Fed The Horse     Pop, Easy Listening, Downbeat, Atmospheric 30/11/2018
Melbourne queens of indie-noir Kelly Day and Jane Hendry are Broads. Haunting, narcotic and deceptively sweet, their songs are laced with acerbic criticism of the culture from which they stem.
‘I Fed The Horse’ challenges social constructs and delves into the wells of the mind to observe and embrace the full spectrum of human emotion.

“A family connected by their emptiness trying to figure out where it came from. Is it nature or nurture? Does it matter? In the end, who we are, we are.”

Ogopogo - Ninja Disco     Funk/Soul, Psychedelic, Dance, Pop 09/11/2018
Eclectic seven piece ensemble Ogopogo combine elements of jazz, disco, funk, experimental pop, and surf rock into a gravity defining mix bag of musical phosphorescence.
Ninja Disco is fly kicks, back flips, and somersaults - a full blown dance track inspired by that girl on the dance floor cutting shapes and moving like a ninja.

Ogopogo - Paranoia     Funk/Soul, Jazz, Experimental, Electronic 09/11/2018
Eclectic seven piece ensemble Ogopogo combine elements of jazz, disco, funk, experimental pop, and surf rock into a gravity defining mix bag of musical phosphorescence.
Lyrically driven around the over powering feeling of being followed by clowns and thinking the world is closing in around you, Paranoia is an epic track moving through funk, jazz, electronic, and experimental grooves.

Johnny [From the Burbs] - Dreamliner     Hip Hop, Rap 01/11/2018
Johnny [From the Burbs] has been busy solidifying his foothold in the hip-hop scene with topical lyrics that pull back the velvet curtain to comment on the Australian political landscape.
Second single from the 'Propaganda' mixtape, ‘Dreamliner’ takes a break from the intensity of ‘Propaganda’. “It’s almost cinematic in its tone,” Johnny says. “However, lyrically the track is the most self-reflective, and colourful on the EP. It was a last-minute addition from an old beat that I half-made back in Feb on the plane trip to the US.”

Laneous - Modern Romance     Funk/Soul, Easy Listening 26/10/2018
He’s back! Lachlan Mitchell aka Laneous (of funk group Kafka + Laneous & The Family Yah) has announced his solo debut in the form of single ‘Modern Romance’ (via Soul Has No Tempo).
Featuring Laneous' own nuanced take on 21st century courting and commitment, ‘Modern Romance’ was written and recorded with his own superb musical romance. The track features producer and bassist, Paul Bender, keyboardist, Simon Mavin (both of grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiyote and Swooping Duck), Donny Stewart on vibraphone and Hudson Whitlock (The Cactus Channel) on drums.

It’s classic Laneous; honey vocals, vintage charm, modern snap and incomparable melodic sensibility.

Dave Wells - Aching Hearts     Folk, Country, Acoustic, Easy Listening 15/10/2018
After receiving praises on ABC Local and community radio upon its release, Dave Wells’ self titled album boasts a diverse body of work with indie folk and alt-rock influences.
A heart felt yet melancholy love song. Influenced by the jealousy and unfairness of being the one who has been left behind, whilst the other sets off on a quest to fulfil their ultimate desires. It portrays the emptiness, hopelessness and answered questions of why they left in the first place, and if they’ll ever return.

Broads - MIRROR     Folk, Easy Listening, Chill, Ambience 04/10/2018
Broads weave a Lynchian mix of folk and indie rock with the surreal pop sounds of the 60s.
Inspired by a Sylvia Plath poem of the same name, “Mirror” is an acerbic reflection on our often obsessive projections and hunger for self-affirmation through the saccharine veils of social media.

Johnny [From the Burbs] - Propaganda     Hip Hop, Rap 28/09/2018
Dropping 2 mixtape EP’s already (Springtime Sorrows & Bradenton) plus a B-side (Provisions) within the space of 12 months, Western Sydney native Johnny Guagliardo is Johnny [From the Burbs].
Topical and self-explanatory ‘Propaganda’ takes a look at “the use of news as a political weapon, how people can be prejudiced by the government’s attempts at subliminally influencing our opinions on everything from the US Presidency to immigration.”

Dr Sinha's Jazz Lobotomy - Invisible Kids     Jazz, Easy Listening 11/09/2018
Dr Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy - 7 musicians rising quickly up the ranks of Melbourne’s improv jazz and groove scene.
Sinha explains: “Inspired by my work with at-risk youth. Through my own personal experience and through my work as a music teacher, I know music can help heal trauma. Dealing with identity and race as a young-person can be tricky, music gives us some agency with those issues as it allows us to express ourselves in ways that feel valuable.”

Sian Evans - Thorns     Folk, Country 07/08/2018
2016 & 2018 Queensland Music Award finalist Sian Evans (The Long Johns, The Rusty Datsuns) is back with brand new single ‘Thorns’.
"'Thorns' is a folk song. It’s also a love song. It’s no secret songwriting is a powerful tool for expression and healing pain, but metaphorically ‘Thorns’ definitely depicts how anything worthwhile has elements of both beauty and pain. Take the good with the bad. It’s not going to be comfortable all of the time. Or even half the time." -Sian

AlfanAnt - Lucky     Folk, Alternative Country, Roots 01/08/2018
20 years may sound like a long time but alt-folk/country duo AlfanAnt sound, tour and play with just as much enthusiasm as they did back in late 90’s and 2000’s.
“Lucky is a very old song that I hold dear. There was a time I didn’t play guitar much but when I did Lucky was my ‘go to’ song", enthuses Alf.

“You can practically hear Alf’s heart break when he sings it. He played it at his mother’s funeral and I just couldn’t help but be totally moved", explains Ant

Emily Wurramara - Lady Blue     Folk, Indigenous 01/06/2018
Emily Wurrumarra is a proud Indigenous performer from Groote Eylandt, NT. Emily won the Indigenous Queensland Music Award in May for her track Ngarrikwujeyinama, the first single lifted from 'Milyakburra'.
Lady Blue is what my Grandmother called the sea. The sea is majestic, graceful, mysterious and so alluring. It takes me back to spending time with my family on Groote and Bickerton camping and fishing and diving into the sea. I was thinking 'ancient mermaid' when I wrote Lady Blue.

Australia’s favourite electric string quartet, FourPlay String Quartet, return to the stage with a rocking new single, Bound, and stack of national tour dates to celebrate.
