Huntly release new single ‘Low Grade Buzz’ from upcoming debut album of the same name, released 15 March via Barely Dressed Records/Remote Control.
‘Low Grade Buzz’ is an ethereal ballad that communicates life’s bittersweet ache, a blissful comedown after a euphoric night. Written in Tempelhof airfield in Berlin after a night out, accompanied by a dinky Yamaha keyboard, bought from an op shop and carried around Europe. It’s about fullness and emptiness and being a bit strung out after staying up all night.

Jess Ribeiro - Stranger     Rock 25/01/2019
Jess Ribeiro releases brand new single ‘Stranger’ premiered via Double J, out now via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
In ‘Stranger’, Ribeiro’s voice travels as a narcotic purr; as she explores infatuation and all the daydreaming that comes alongside it.

The new track was produced by Ben Edwards and recorded as a 3-piece with Dave Mudie and Jade Imagine.

Jess Ribeiro - Love Is The Score Of Nothing     Rock 29/11/2018
Premiered on Double J's Mornings with Zan, Jess Ribeiro has released her new single ‘Love Is The Score Of Nothing’, out now via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
The new single is something of an indie-rock banger, signalling a new sound for an artist whose previous albums explored a kind of intricate folk-noire. This time round Ribeiro recalls the nonchalant coolness of the great French female vocalists of the 1960’s. Her vocal performance is detached while a delightful jangle of guitars, drums, keys and percussion swirls happily underneath.

Banoffee - Bubble     Pop, Electronic 17/11/2018
Melbourne-born, LA-based multidisciplinary artist Banoffee releases new single ‘Bubble’ out now via Dot Dash/Remote Control.

I hope in those moments something like this song is a little pick me up. There’s power in difference. Don’t mistake vulnerability as weakness. What a typical doozy we all make..."

‘Black Tapes’ is a Neo-spiritual celebrating and lamenting the deep impact technology has on the state of our innocence. For Cazeaux O.S.L.O. as a kid VHS tapes were his campfire, his elder scroll, his suburban electric prophecy. For Nelson Dialect these black rectangle time capsules captured a lot of his imagination and different exposure to music, sport, film and art.
