Grace Stevenson AKA Rebel Yell has released her second single 'Stains' from upcoming debut album 'Hired Muscle'.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Amelia Jenner, FBi, Sydney (NSW)

Sarah Mary Chadwick - Sugar Still Melts In The Rain     Pop, Pop 13/03/2018
Title track from Sarah Mary Chadwick's new album 'Sugar Still Melts In The Rain'. Album out May 11
To listen to Sarah's music is to be a quiet observer to her thoughts on love, death and mental health. Sometimes this anguish bears itself in sullen, quiet moments, but more often torment manifests at the break of Sarah's voice as she sing-shouts painfully vulnerable, self-aware lyrics.

Rebel Yell - PRESSURE DROP     Electronic, Dance, Industrial 02/03/2018
Rebel Yell, aka Grace Stevenson made her mark with debut EP Mother of Millions. Returning in 2017 with ‘High Authority‘.2018 sees Rebel Yell releasing debut album 'Hired Muscle 'this June.

Straight Arrows - Out and Down     Rock, Garage, Punk 14/02/2018
Sydney’s most prized, glittering gemstone of the garage rock underworld, Straight Arrows, are today returning to your earholes armed with some blistering new material.
'Out and Down’ gives us what we’ve been waiting patiently for – fuzzed out, bleary-eyed but bushy tailed undiluted garage punk.

Lowtide - Elizabeth Tower     Rock 30/01/2018
Lowtide have carved out an aural signature for themselves within the Australian music sphere – one that is characterised by pop-laden harmonies, shot through the middle with melancholy, hypnotic vocals.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Will Backler, RTR FM, Perth (WA)

Robert Muiños - Pillow     Rock 27/09/2017
Melbourne based singer songwriter Robert Muinos (Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins) has returned to his solo work with a fittingly titled 'EP3' set for release September 22.
Pillow is the second single taken from Robert Muinos striking EP, EP3. The rhythm section comprised of Muinos’ Saskwatch bandmates approach the considered simplicity in Pillow with sensitivity and a choked restraint that alludes to the feeling of self defeat associated with the anxiety and depression tackled in the lyrics.

Rob Muinos - Weeks At All     Rock 30/08/2017
Melbourne based singer songwriter Robert Muinos (Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins) has returned to his solo work with a fittingly titled 'EP3' set for release September 22.
The metallic guitar on 'Weeks At All' scratch like an itch of frustration and there seems to be a catharsis to these songs as Muinos vocals climb to a sustained climax on the lyric “Let it out…” It makes misery sound beautiful.

Other tracks by Rob Muinos:  As If That's Real  -  Pillow
Darts - Cinder Bloc     Rock 23/08/2017
DARTS are a Melbourne based five-piece whose melancholic, aggressive sound features loud-quiet dynamics that exhibits their unique tapestry of influences.
Angus Ayres describes Cinder Bloc and Distance = Infinity as "two tracks that were written when Ally and I started writing everything together for the first time, so the songs combine both of our styles. The sleepy shoegaze with the aggressive stabby music that was evident on our last record."

Other tracks by Darts:  Distance = Infinity
Lowtide - Alibi     Rock, Pop, Atmospheric 04/08/2017
Lowtide are a shoegaze/dream pop band from Melbourne that deliver melodic atmospheric aural pleasure. They are the latest band to sign to Rice Is Nice Records.
Alibi is about the slow realisation that the mundane has well and truly overshadowed the magical in a relationship. And once you add a grass-is-greener dilemma to the mix, it’s a slippery slope from there..

Rebel Yell - High Authority     Electronic, Industrial, Dance 28/04/2017
With a Korg ESX-1 and Metal zone pedal in tow Brisbane-based Rebel Yell creates dark, haunting, industrial electronic music you can dance to - but isn't dance music.
Breaking through with a punchy EBM banger, ‘High Authority’ takes Rebel Yell out of the low-fi production sphere and into a new dance element. Lyrically repetitive in nature, drumming in the fact that Rebel Yell is the boss, she’s your boss.

feedtime - Any Good Thing     Rock 31/03/2017
Australia's favourite misanthropic noise-makers feedtime are back with a new record 20 years later. 'Gas' finds the band sounding exactly as they always did - pummeling, gnarly and awesome!
A blues-noise that was equal parts abstract minimalism and working class roots-rock. Post-punk, yet right in the thick of it; miles ahead of the pack.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Cameron Dunsford, PBS 106.7FM, Melbourne (VIC), Amelia Jenner, FBi Radio, Sydney (NSW)

Angie - A Ring     Rock, Acoustic, Folk 24/02/2017
One of Sydney's most exciting musicians, whose guises include Circle Pit, Southern Comfort, Ruined Fortune and Straight Arrows, Angie is back with her 3rd solo LP titled ‘Shyness’.
Moody and introspective, 'A Ring' strikes a different tone to Angie’s previous work. Where Free Agent was a fuzzy, lo-fi, electric guitar driven affair, ‘A Ring’ is a warm, enveloping and highly emotive acoustic number.

SPOD - Boys Night     Rock, Pop, Dance 22/12/2016
"Australia’s superior answer to Andrew W.K; a one man party extravaganza who’s single-minded mission is to get your hips shaking.” - Soundly Sounds
"An Australian classic is born.” - Pilerats​. 'Boys Night' AKA 2016's Song of the Damn Year doesn't represent some seismic political shift or even thematic turn-of-face for our always-been-woke-and-also-always-had-a-face hero; rather, it represents a cool party zone rarely explored via sweet synthy vibes and Bandcamp compatibility.

Den - Inertia     Rock, Punk 28/10/2016
Enter Den: A post-punk group from Sydney formed in 2014 by Michael Grossman, Steven Hicks, Tomas Nunez and Michael Hassett.
'Inertia' is the third single to be taken from Den's debut self-titled EP out November 11 via Rice Is Nice.

Are you frustrated by the constant agitation? Tired of being turned off? Straight Arrows are too, and they've written their longest song yet about the subject. Clocking in at a yawn-some 1 minute 47, from their so-far untitled 2017 LP, this is Turn Me Off. Here to turn to on.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Cameron Dunsford, PBS 106.7FM, Melbourne (VIC)
