Way Shit - Don't Stab Me     Metal/Punk, Folk, Garage 22/06/2018
Way Shit describe themselves as 'Footscray emo punk', and they are Shelley Smith (she/her - guitar/vocals/songwriting), Michael Voulgarellis (he/him - bass) and Kevin Baker (he/him - drums).
‘Don’t Stab Me’ details the harassment female identifying and non-binary people have to deal with while taking public transport, both on a micro level of aggression: the way society normalises controlling women and non-binary people, and also the macro level: of escalation of threats that lead to the normalisation of violence (and murder) against women and non-binary people.

Uncompromising density of sound and relentless energy live, Advocates have fought for their place in heavy music and are proving themselves a force among their peers
Heavy and furious, Advocates have a brutal offering in the form of Detachment. The follow up to 2017's Wither, Detachment is Advocates at their most mature and ambitious.

Cat Heaven - Razorlight     Metal/Punk, Grunge, Punk, Rock 11/05/2018
Energetic post punk, flips between calm and despair like a faulty light switch. Sombre but evocative, taut but sincere, Cat Heaven claw together an enchanting set of brooding punk exercises.
Razorlight gives as much as it demands, persisting like the final reckoning with a long-gone adversary over all the things you didn't get to voice. Raw yet plaintive vocals bounce off the ceiling, brittle rage backed by throbbing, chorus-heavy bass. Sinewy and unpredictable guitar lines race against emphatic drums.

Primitive Calculators - On Drugs     Metal/Punk, Electronic, Experimental, Industrial 13/04/2018
Aussie/ Melbourne proto-post-punk band Primitive Calculators have been making music for 40 years. Tough, brutal, hard to love music. Always challenging but always brilliant. Seminal noise.
A boogie rock, soul-inspired scorcher of a track that is going to ignite their fan base and convert the rest to the church of PC. The industrial thumping funk familiar to their previous work relentlessly punctuates a track that sits somewhere between a confession and a fire and brimstone sermon.

Other tracks by Primitive Calculators:  I Wish You Were Dead  -  Competition
