Aubergine - Lonely Peak     Jazz, Instrumental, Psych, Easy Listening 04/02/2020
Weaving together intricate textural landscapes of melody and harmony, Aubergine sits in a space rarely occupied - not quite jazz and not quite classical, almost meditative and boasting heady grooves.
'Lonely Peak' pushes the boundaries of the imagination. A peaceful, yet pensive piece, it portrays life at its most triumphant and its most miserable. Think of it as a guiding sherpa, taking the listener on a journey to a mirror atop a mountain peak where they can sit and be at rest for the song's six minutes. This is the quartet's debut single.

Barney Mcall + 30/70 - Sweet Water     Jazz 30/01/2020
Released today on Plug Seven Records and Wondercore Island is ‘Sweet Water’ from jazz pianist and composer Barney McAll; and ‘Drifting’ by the city’s ground-breaking Jazz crew 30/70 Collective.
Much like Melbourne’s diverse cultural landscape, McAll’s track is a synthesis of global influences. On ‘Sweet Water’ he incorporates classic Rhodes keys, Moroccan castanets, and on the track’s hook, bulbul tarang. These diverse influences are bolstered by McAll’s experiences travelling in Cuba where he discovered the regional Santería faith and its sacred batá drums, played here by Javier Fredes.
