Teaming up with The Bronx front man Matt Caughthran ‘Year Of The Dog’ is a pedal to the floor thrash-party banger.

Dumb Things - Today Tonight     Rock, Pop 15/07/2019
Brisbane indie rock purveyors Dumb Things have patented a distinctive modern sunburnt pop aesthetic which owes a debt to That Striped Sunlight Sound pioneered by Queensland forebears like The Go-Betweens.
Brisbane band Dumb Things return with the first taste of their sophomore album Time Again, lead single Today Tonight polishing their patented sunburnt pop to a sheen whilst retaining the edges. Luminous guitars swirl, underpinned by lyrics casting a simultaneously romantic/cynical eye on the work, TV, sleep, repeat cycle.

This first single release, Dysthymia, was written by Kyle McMenemy in 2016 and recorded by the band in their studio in 2018. This song is about overcoming long term depression.

Bianca Blackhall is a singer/songwriter from nipaluna/Hobart. She shares her distinctly Australian stories through mercurial poeticism to the backing of her ragtag country infused, pub-rock band.
A dreamy, mid-tempo, Outback anthem. Bacardi, dirt bikes and cashed up Bogans. This is the song that plays on the jukebox at the end of the night and the only person left to dance with is your Ex. You oblige...

Other tracks by Bianca Blackhall:  Iron Ore  -  Sharks
Club Yorke - To Love Someone Deeply     Rock, Pop 12/07/2019

Coen Cashin & Mark Cashin - Move Your Body     Rock 12/07/2019
NSW Central Coast musician, Mark Cashin, has recorded the last song his son Coen was working on before his tragic passing.
Some classic synthy 80's disco starts this track before Mark's voice picks up the vibe with a summer reggae/pop feel and back to retro disco for the chorus. Some signature funky electric guitar rounds this out so as not stray far from Mark's roots.

Fierce Mild - Death's Kingdom     Rock, Experimental, Psychedelic, Atmospheric 12/07/2019
Fierce Mild are an act that draws as much inspiration from cinema, visual art, Australian Noir and Victorian history to craft their intricate brand of Post-Electro Cinematic Art Rock.
A suicidal contemplation, an attempt to escape the physicality of Dasein through a visit to an after life. All lessons in 'heaven' are ignored and the mind returns to the body convincing yourself that there is no god, or no one that can see any of your actions - giving you impunity for the actions that you take on earth.

AUSTRALIAN band Four Lions started as a solo vehicle for Bendigo-based singer-songwriter Shann Lions in December 2014, after he emerged from an eight-year musical hiatus.
"Gone" combines classic rock with touches of alt-country, embellished with flourishes of Hammond organ, courtesy of keys man Stephen Briggs, who also contributes the song’s gorgeous grand piano outro. And lead guitarist Keith MacQueen unleashes a barrage of his trademark meaty riffs in the bridge to keep the rock flag flying high.

Heinous Crimes - Valley     Rock, Psychedelic, Experimental, Instrumental 12/07/2019
4 piece psych outfit from Adelaide, inspired by elements of Alt-rock, post-rock and kraut-rock and other psychedelic goodness.
Valley is a brooding smoke-filled track that clouds your mind, sending shivers down your spine for a full seven minutes. Meandering in a dreamy state and is as arid and foreboding as the dark landscape featured on the cover. There’s an intense heat that permeates from this song. You can practically feel yourself begin to perspire by the four-minute mark.

“Australia’s next great psych band” - DIY
"This track reminds me of a Rhino at full charge, I was absolutely cranking it while recording. Pretty sure my housemates didn't get any sleep the week it was being crafted. The lyrics were based on the end of a relationship those months you're questioning where your life will end up and if you're making the right decisions." Jack McEwan
