OKO - Haze     Psych, Instrumental, Rock, Alternative 28/02/2020
By blending influences from the desert rock through to instrumental music such as 70's Prog & Krautrock, OKO has formed a sound that allows for organic growth.
Haze is an experiment of finding our sound & writing process as a band. By creating a piece that flows along with several different changes without jarring the listener was a big thing for us during the writing process. Having it as one solid piece of music rather than a bunch of little bits strung together.

Easy Browns - Dog Eat God     Psych, Rock, Punk, Garage 21/02/2020
Easy Browns are a 4-piece from Melbourne, twisting together garage, psych and pop behind jagged movements and uncanny changes in pace.
“Dog Eat God” conjures the potent image of a harsh world in the throes post-societal breakdown. Continuing the themes presented in Easy Browns last single “Dam Eels” yet revelling in true horror, “Dog Eat God” provokes thought on the disintegration of morality in the face of impending doom.

Start with...
One cup of sweet indian sitar,
two cups of salty surf guitars,
heat with a high-temp beat,
chop in a fat bass line…
And then cook for 4 Minutes.

Flyying Colours are a four piece psych/shoegaze band from Melbourne. usic guaranteed to take you on a melodic journey from distortion to swooning, with melancholy and all the good feels.
""Big Mess" is somewhat of a representation of what it was like at the time for us being away [on tour] and coming home. Everything was a bit crazy and a bit messy in our lives…relationships change (all different kinds) as life changes and that is kind of what the song is about."

WAWAWOW - The Big Cookoff     Psych, Experimental, Indie, Garage 17/01/2020
They don’t come much more energetic than Sydney’s WAWAWOW - their name alone is like a neon slap to the senses. Masters of psych-rock, WAWAWOW are an eclectically charged four-piece.
Equal parts mental and ridiculously precise in delivery, ‘The Big Cookoff’ is textbook WAWAWOW. Evolving from jam sessions into produced recordings full of raw energy, the single is representative of a band who are firmly in the pocket, firmly tongue in cheek and firmly with their eye on a central vision on making music delivered in one-two punch style.

Ocean Alley - Tombstone     Psych, Rock, Indie, Reggae / Dub 12/12/2019
Ocean Alley have captivated audiences around the world with their infectious melody lines and memorable blend of psychedelic surf-rock.
Quietly self-assured; 'Tombstone' dives headfirst into bright, psychedelic tones and a floating melody, creating an intoxicating combination pairing Baden Donegal's buttery vocals with the group's signature epic harmonies.

With this song the band shifts gear from the haunting swirl of guitars of opener, The Needle's Falling, and commences with pounding drums and a faster pace. The melancholy tone is still present but the angle of dead-end obscurity is turned to one of assertive realisation.

Fig - Harumi Hotel     Psych, Rock, Alternative, Indie 03/12/2019
Fig are a slow-glam band. Their music mixes Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie and River-era Springsteen, with the soft psychedelic approach of Japanese musician Harumi, and modern artists like Weyes Blood.
‘Harumi Hotel’, feels like the timeless classics we know and love from the ballad rock of the 60s and 70s. The song is both a reflection on their art as well as a love letter to Harumi; the 1968 acid-folk album from the Japanese musician of the same name.

Las Mar - Something That I Know     Psych, Indie, Pop, World 26/11/2019
Drummer/producer Las Mar creates twisted beats with lush synths and scratchy guitars. A new psychedelic art-pop sound, Las Mar's music is punchy and soulful yet subtle and multi-textured.
Something That I Know is the first single from Las Mar's 2nd album. The core rhythm is inspired by Ethio-Funk, but sonically it's more synth-driven, psychedelic pop. It also features slide guitar, exotic percussion and lush layered vocals. A truly unique and funky mixture, think Mulatu Astatque meets Ariel Pink.

Seekay - Wonderful     Psych, Pop, Rock, Indie 22/11/2019
Seekay is the musical persona of an Australian songwriter and poet delivering chill, vibey, thought-provoking, emotive songs combining blues, soul, and R&B electronica with a twist.
Usually soulful and introspective this song is more uptempo, live, groovy, psychedelic pop.

Consistent with Seekay's other work the song can be seen as a simple love song reflecting that early buzz of blossoming romance or equally it can be seen as a lament for something being lost that was beautiful and is unlikely to be realized again.
