Polo Club - See You Again     Hip Hop, Dance, Pop 19/07/2012
Polo Club are indie, electronica and thinking person's hip hop. One of the smartest most interesting things going in Australian hip hop. The are amazing live.

Tourism - City Never Sleeps     Rock, Britpop 19/07/2012
Brisbane four-piece Tourism’s laddish lyricism, inherent pop smarts and jagged, angular guitar play are the perfect antidote to those winter blues.
The band's new single, City Never Sleeps, is angular, propulsive and hooky as hell, with a sunny sound reminiscent of jagged indie-pop from Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks and The Vaccines.

Ardeem - Space     Electronic, Pop, Hip Hop, Retro 17/07/2012
Percussive, Synth-poppy love songs so good that you might not even be able to tell they were written by an emotionally-retarded, insecure weirdo. Your new favourite weirdo, Ardeem.
This song is truer to experience than intended. Initially, it was meant to be an exaggerated, ironic expression of my 26-year-old-teenage-angst but it turns out that I actually do need my space.

Don't we all?

Or maybe I'm just antisocial and weird.

Rich Batsford - Who Knew     Pop, Folk, Classical, Rock 17/07/2012
Rich creates a compelling and delightful blend of Ben Folds, Leonard Cohen and Brian Wilson. Combining a natural ear for melody with exquisite vocal harmonies that are reflective and insightful.
"Who Knew is ultimately a hopeful song which begins by revealing intimate and at times painfully honest confessions from the songwriters inner world to suggest that through the imaginative recognition of the fact of suffering in other people's lives we can experience a bond of mutual empathy and compassion.

Other tracks by Rich Batsford:  Everything and Nothing  -  Easier For Her
Jack & The Queen - The Games We Play     Folk, Acoustic, Roots 16/07/2012
A breath of folky fresh air, started out with ukes and harmonies and it's grown from there...Jack & the Queen are sure to make you smile! :)
The uke & bass combine to drive the groove on this laid-back, rambling folk tune...the handclaps provide some pretty sweet (easy) audience participation! ;)

The Wine Dark Sea - Softly     Pop, Rock 13/07/2012
The open road, friendly skies, The Wine Dark Sea. Pack your cares in a suitcase and relax, let your mind wander, think sun, sand, a good book and love.
‘Softly’ is anything but, being the least ‘soft’ of the bands repertoire and one of many flavours of The Wine Dark Sea, which sails from acoustic folk to indie pop. Showcasing their pure pop sensibilities, Softly will have listeners swooning with a classic girly vocal and cool distorted guitar.

Other tracks by The Wine Dark Sea:  Suitcase  -  Sunday Suit
Into the Woods - Black Dog     Pop, Garage, Pop, Rock 10/07/2012
Into the Woods play a blend of 50s and 60s pop with a splash of modern pop to form a new style known in candy shops around Melbourne as poppopmodpop.
‘Black Dog’ is a really bad cover of a Led Zeppelin song. It’s so bad that it sounds like a completely different song.
If we were reviewers we’d say it's “built around a tireless musicality that seeps through every note”. Since we’re not, we’ll say “people danced at the Empress”.

Fait Accompli - No Great Expectations     Rock, Pop, Punk, Soul 10/07/2012
Bringing a soulful melodic element to their sound, has put a modern-day twist to the ever-evolving sound of punk rock, earning them their own unique musical style-‘Soul Punk’.
Insanely catchy, 90s-inspired indie rock number
