Eddie Ray - TV     Rock, Roots, Punk, Pop 16/10/2019
Eddie Ray is a multi instrumental multi faceted performer who weaves story telling, comedy and funk together. His music is uniquely Australian and is refreshingly upbeat and positive.
This song asks the question, what is TV doing to our minds?

From the minute the drums start this song pulls you in to ask "did you ever stop to think about the way things are?" This is an observation on our obsession with screens and the non stop propaganda that tells us how it is night after night.

Tanaya Harper - Crash Pad     Rock, Pop 16/10/2019
Emerging from beloved indie-rock band Bells Rapids, Tanaya Harper’s solo project solidifies her as a leading lady of Perth’s original music scene. The multi-instrumentalist has returned with earworm ‘Crash Pad’.
‘Crash Pad’ was produced and mixed by Dave Parkin with mastering completed by William Bowden, and is certain to catapult Harper from promising artist-to-watch to a celebrated forerunner of modern Australian indie. Bookended by ‘90s reminiscent vocal hooks, ‘Crash Pad’ builds and retreats with edging crescendos of woozy guitar jams and heart-pulsing percussion, before imploding into an all-out fuzz fest..

Pretty Thrills - Flames     Rock, Pop 14/10/2019
Pretty Thrills (Sydney-based) are debuting with an explosive pop-rock single that will set the band up for a thrilling year in 2020.
Fueling this debut single are pop-rock guitar-riffs, electro-synths, a high-powered drum beat and a commanding vocal delivery from Max Donnellan who transitions tonally from soft, breathy verses, into the demanding choruses.

This is all followed by an enrapturing bridge as the band gets explosive in half-time as Max belts out the lyrics, "Burn it down".

Chavez Cartel - Love On The Run     Rock, Alternative 11/10/2019
Staying true to their signature grungy alt rock sound, the new single is filled with gloomy vocals, slick guitar riffs and drumming resonant to that of a marching band.
With bold lyrics 'Feel me pin you in a vein and shoot you up through my arm', Love On The Run is a slightly twisted and deranged love song that focuses on the darker, more destructive side of love. It represents unexpectedly falling in love during a time and in a place that you probably shouldn't be.

DROVES - Retribution     Rock, Garage, Indie 11/10/2019
DROVES’ futuristic look at New Wave Punk has drawn comparisons to early New Order, The Eurythmics and The Cure.
When they kick into the rollicking 'Retribution', driven by an urgent percussive undercurrent and a mantra-like chorus that layers the band's multiple vocalists into a pounding, syncopated chant.

Recorded with Cody Munro Moore's portable, makeshift studio under a tram station in Glebe, the song cuts through an underlying tension with resplendent guitars and an unshakeable sense of urgency coursing throughout.

St Joan - I Think (You Think)     Rock, Psych, Blues 11/10/2019
Drawing influence from the story-telling of Jeff Buckley and sinister melodies of Radiohead, Sydney trio St Joan fuse psychedelia, blues, indie and folk to create vulnerable and dynamic music.
"I Think (you think)" sings of fallen expectations within a brotherhood. This psychedelic beast, powered by its beefy bass line, is the love of a brother and the pain of letting them down. Visiting the psychedelic world of King Gizzard, this is just one faucet of rock'n'roll pouring out of St Joan and the emotional lament that is "Burning Home."

The memories are sombre but life moves on and he finds himself at The Southern Hotel charging his glass to new memories (as the Jacarandas fade) and the uplifting promise of a new year.
