Nat Vazer - Privilege     Rock, Pop 17/11/2018
Melbourne-based artist Nat Vazer is a warm, charismatic, and contemplative songwriter with a knack for writing charmingly rebellious tunes about the ironies of everyday life.
The track looks at recognising white privilege. Vazer was watching the show "Dear White People", which discusses racial bias and discrimination. The term "woke" is used a lot. "I wanted to write a song that kind of captures that state of being oblivious or half-asleep to those issues, and then waking up to them and seeing them everywhere".

Cool Sounds - The Beat     Pop, Alternative Country, Rock 22/10/2018
Playful, earnest guitar music for long haul drives, sunsets, gardening and contemplative walks.
A builder, the intro sees front-man Dainis Lacey setting the scene - the dread at seeing an old acquaintance - before the full band kicks in with swagger.
Using slide-guitar, 80s prom synths & a plucky, McCartney-esque bass, the sax refrain elevates the whole feel - repetition aimed at a Krautrock vibe, all framed in an alt-country, 70s soft-rock atmosphere.

Orlean - You're Not There     Pop, Ambience, Electronic 17/10/2018
An electronic duo of producer Terry Man and vocalist Bella Li - intensity and detachment; robotic but human; current yet nostalgic... Orlean marry polar opposites into sophisticated pop gems.
"You're Not There" bubbles to the surface with keys like rain-drops. The soft vocals are paired with drum production more commonly found in trap. Thematically, a lover tries to penetrate, or understand the black dog of depression their partner suffers from. They're not sad.. they're not feeling anything at all - all the harder to relate to.

Cool Sounds - Cassandra     Pop, Alternative Country, Rock 08/10/2018
Playful, earnest guitar music for long haul drives, sunsets, gardening and contemplative walks.
"Cassandra" is the second single from an upcoming LP, out 26/10/18. A rollicking, riff driven track with a distinctly live feel, the uncomplicated structure & swing time bliss bring that alt-country vibe the band do so well! Deeply steeped in nostalgia, it's about a relationship with an older person. It's sad, but has that warm feeling of looking back.

Nat Vazer - Struggletown     Pop, Rock 27/08/2018
Melbourne-based artist Nat Vazer is a warm, charismatic, and contemplative songwriter with a knack for writing charmingly rebellious tunes about the ironies of everyday life.
Welcome to "Struggletown", the guitars are tropical, handclaps happy and ladies caress you with “oohs”. But the upbeat mood belies a darkness. Listen closer - the handclaps are fake, “the sun is always out, but everybody’s up and down”. It’s a place where people’s fear about feeling trapped in a nine-to-five is drowned out by rounds of long island iced-teas.

Cool Sounds - Cactus Country     Rock, Alternative Country, Pop 13/08/2018
Playful, earnest guitar music for long haul drives, sunsets, gardening and contemplative walks.
Dainis Lacey’s twangy falsetto flavours the album’s title track, peppered with synths, an earworm-like slinky guitar line, and a seagull sample. Eventually you get swept up in spaghetti western-esque technicolour...
Lacey explained he had a bit of scope for experimentation on the recording, including pitch shifted vocals, field recordings, super processed and layered guitar tones, and drum machines.

S.M. Jenkins - Sore Loser     Rock 18/05/2018
S. M. Jenkins is a slacker-rock band started by Steve Bourke, based on some recordings he was making alone in his house.
As emotional as Harry Styles' "A Sign Of The Times" and guitars reminiscent of "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd, this is an anthem for the down-and-out. The refrain "no one likes to lose" is a call to arms, nay, a wake up call, for the bitter in defeat.
