Rice Is Nice

Sort by: Date Artist
Straight Arrows - Bad Temper     Rock, Punk, Psychedelic 06/12/2010
Fuzzed, melodic, and reverberated budget psychedelic bent. Tours and shows with, amongst others (friends, punks, and shitheads), Thee Oh Sees, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Black Lips, Jay Reatard (RIP).
Bad Temper, the perfect opener to the record, super fun garage pop punk.

Other tracks by Straight Arrows:  Golden Torch
Straight Arrows - 21st Century     Rock 04/09/2018
Straight Arrows are a four piece DIY garage punk band from Sydney, Australia.
The break-beat groove of “21st Century” is the sound of a band that isn’t short on ideas and isn’t afraid to push the envelope of what people expect from the Straight Arrows.

SPOD - Sexual Fantasy     Electronic 12/06/2019
SPOD is Australia's most unrecognized musical genius.
'Sexual Fantasy' is the first single to be taken from the new record. A song about ways love can survive in the long stretch of a committed relationship. Keeping that candle alight, keeping the fantasy alive. Sensitivity, respect, passion. That’s the ticket! The kids are at Grandmas, the dogs are fed, work can wait. This secret is ours.

SPOD - Party Of One     Electronic 10/08/2016
Spod: Australia’s superior answer to Andrew W.K; a one man party extravaganza who’s single-minded mission is to get your hips shaking.
Spod was feeling lonely, so he cranked out a new song ‘Party of One’ with an accompanying video about looking for friendship and satisfaction via food and computer tablet technology. Spending a lonely night with his semi-broken synths, Spod created an ode to being forced into some personal time.

SPOD - Make Things Right     Electronic 21/06/2019
SPOD is Australia's biggest creative genius, and most un-celebrated national hero.
'Make Things Right' is a track about late nights, cold city streets, headlights spread through the fog, sirens splashing on the empty brick walls. Out on the streets, looking for your only son who’s old enough to make his own decisions, but young enough to not respect the consequences

SPOD - Day In The Sun     Electronic, Pop 18/04/2018
Sydney's original party starter has been making us all taste the radness for over a decade. The dance rock pioneer electrifies brainwaves wherever and whenever he graces the stage

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.

SPOD - Boys Night     Electronic 27/04/2018
Sydney's original party starter has been making us all taste the radness for over a decade. The dance rock pioneer electrifies brainwaves wherever and whenever he graces the stage.
A critical read of the Boys Night text assures that, somewhere along SPOD's intra-planetary travels, it was witnessed just how the other 50.1% lives. Indeed, it was from those a**holes that this festive phoenix did arise.

Shady Lane - Galileo     Pop, Electronic, Folk, Atmospheric 09/10/2009
Shady Lane is the brainchild of Sydney's Jordy Lane. They play a giddy blissful sound mixing elements of folk, electronica and pop. Like Aphex Twin meets The Postal Service.
Galileo is a wonderful story drenched in sunny pop folk harmonies. Beautiful lyrics and song structure cemented this as the first single to be released from the album.

Other tracks by Shady Lane:  Ouch My Head  -  Absolute Truth
Shady Lane - Dumb Hope     Pop, Electronic 22/03/2012
Shady Lane are a pop/electronic four piece from Sydney who sculpt little dreamscapes which take you on a journey from joyous obscurity to the plain divine.
A bit like an autumn breeze, Dumb Hope scoops and carries you throughout the song like newly golden leaves down the street. It’s a story of the everyday mundane told from a dreamy temperament.

Other tracks by Shady Lane:  Convenient Face Hinge
Seja - I'll Get To You     Pop 11/02/2010
Seja has spent years playing synthesizers in Sekiden and Regurgitator, two of Brisbane’s finest ever pop bands. Late last year Seja found herself wanting to make an album alone.
Bubbly synth, beautiful vocals and backed with a down tempo beat. this song is the perfect opener to the album and introduces the listener to Seja's world.

Other tracks by Seja:  Through The Backstreets  -  Framed You In Fiction
Seja - C'mon     Electronic, Pop 01/03/2014
Brisbane’s synth-collecting Seja Vogel recorded her second album ‘All Our Wires’ with her brother Mirko and collaborated with Robert Forster, Wally De Backer and members of Cut Copy and Regurgitator.
Equally delicate while electrifying, 'C'mon' is perfect slice of ethereal electro pop.

Seekae - Yurai     Electronic, Downbeat, Ambience, Experimental 15/10/2009
Surfs between the varying electronic sounds of Xela, Boards of Canada and Telefon Tel Aviv via the pop affability of Hot Chip. Seekae have dubbed their sound “ghetto ambient”.
Yurai, the first track from the album provides a stunning spacey sound reminicent of early Warp records releases. Bubbling with warm tones and thick layered beats. One of the Seekae tracks that will instantly convert you to their sound.

Other tracks by Seekae:  Void  -  Cenataur
Seekae - Gnor     Electronic, Atmospheric, Experimental 11/03/2011
Seekae fuses the 808 and bass heavy club sounds of the new decade and their own brand of electronica to create genre-defying tracks.
Gnor is the product of an electronic jam, fusing intricate guitar riddled interludes, downbeat percussive sounds and various time-shifting effects to create a cohesive and chilling soundscape.

Sarah Mary Chadwick - The Queen Who Stole The Sky     Classical 04/04/2019
The prolific Sarah Mary Chadwick returns with ‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’, an album performed and recorded live on Melbourne Town Hall’s 147 year-old grand organ.
‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’ is undeniably commanding, yet punctuated by points of intimacy. The songs have a narrative-like quality, unfolding themselves before their audience. SMC's command of the grand organ is testament to her musicality – the sheer size of the instrument could so easily drown out the nuances of the songwriting – but not so for Sarah.

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.

Sarah Mary Chadwick - Please Daddy     Indie 13/11/2019
