Trash & The Treasures - Swamp     Rock, Blues, Punk, Garage 29/11/2019
Raucous Blues-Punk with outbreaks of danceable harmonica-powered groove.
This is a song about de-evolution. To Paraphrase Douglas Adams - some people said it was a bad idea to come down from the trees, others said it was a mistake to leave the swamp. T&TT are taking us back!

Easy Street are a warped, classic pop/garage folk five-piece from Sydney, Australia.
Written and recorded in a Sydney bedroom, 'Waves Waves Dreams Dreams' is inspired by the likes of Destroyer, King Gizzard and MGMT. It's energetic and uplifting with a pulsating and hypnotic beat.

Meres - Cut     Rock, Punk, Alternative 28/11/2019
Conceived in the perfect echo chambers of Canada’s cheap motel bathrooms, Launceston’s indie-rock queen Mary Shannon, aka Meres, presents an unadulterated blend of glittering, fuzzed out punk.
“I wrote this song around the time a friend's father passed away. It was written from a strange place of guilt, grown from the expanding distance between us - I wasn't sure how to be their friend like I used to be. It’s about wanting to feel that intense connection with someone again, trying to fight for it."

Other tracks by Meres:  Think You Like This
The Dull Joys - Turn the Other Way     Rock, Alternative, Indie, Garage 28/11/2019
The Dull Joys: post-punk guitar noise, broken hearted balladeering suffused with rich ambient textures.

Geo - Good Time     Rock, Jazz 27/11/2019
Groovy, Funk-alicious Prog Rock lightly seasoned with darkness and eccentricity.
An upbeat, ska infused prog rock song paired with ironically downtrodden lyrics. A cathartic anthem for those who have experience depression and/ or mental illness.

The Feast of Snakes - No Thanks     Rock, Garage, Punk, Country 27/11/2019
The Feast of Snakes come from the guildford river. Playing hard tragic rock, country city punk, heavy neil young guitar.
No Thanks is an anthem of dissatisfaction and denial, Lewis sings continuously its titular refrain, as Olivia squeaks above it. He adds continuous asides to the two words, such as, "you're making me sweat, No Thanks, you're making me smile".

The song opens their set at Camp Doogs, the alternative Western Australian music festival with error and laughter.

Future Haunts - Far Away     Rock 26/11/2019
Melding the cosmic studio journeying of The War on Drugs with the melodic immediacy of The Stone Roses, Future Haunts are a group that exist on the blurry edges.
Brisbane's Future Haunts unveil blistering new single 'Far Away', premiered via triple j's Home & Hosed. The track arrives alongside the announcement of the band's forthcoming second EP, Rushmore for 2020.

Slowly Slowly - Safety Switch     Rock, Alternative 26/11/2019
There’s an unshakable sense of comfort and resonance that comes with listening to Slowly Slowly. Vivid lyricism, emotionally-charged vocals and soaring guitars prove the four-piece as nothing short of striking.
Featuring guest vocals from rising Adelaide-based singer-songwriter Bec Stevens, 'Safety Switch' is the modern rock duet you didn't know you needed. Harnessing the fine line we tread in maintaining a healthy relationship, 'Safety Switch' is a vivid, emotionally-charged effort.

Violent Soho - Vacation Forever     Rock, Garage 26/11/2019
Violent Soho are back with ‘Vacation Forever’, their anthemic new track and first official single since their critically acclaimed #1 multi-ARIA winning, Gold certified fourth studio album ‘WACO’.
Crashing back into the collective conscious of Australia, ‘Vacation Forever’ is everything you want from Mansfield’s favourite sons. A bold, much-needed dose of every day Australian honesty with lyrics like “There’s a baby boomer across the street and it won’t stop staring at me” and “Cause they all want the good life, but I just want to breathe”.

Chantell Alexi - Army Man     Rock 25/11/2019
Mainly an alternative artist, this is Chantell's first venture into Rock. Chantell is never afraid to show her emotions buried deeply within her songs.
Army Man is a metaphore for a broken friendship. I was inspired to write the song after hearing about an old friend joining the Army. This friend had once promised to always be there for me, yet in the end were very quick to turn against me. I think that's something a lot of people can relate to.

Don and the Mobsters - Pure Sin     Rock, Alternative, Blues 25/11/2019

Unbroken Expanse - Go     Rock, Alternative 25/11/2019
Unbroken Expanse is rock n’ roll without the handbook, learned by instinct. Not trying to impress anyone other than the ghosts that flicker on the empty outback plains.
Go begins with a gentle, sparse chord progression underneath an honest, raw voice singing of belief in our future. Suddenly it transforms into a loud, pulsing, pub-rockin’ kind of Chorus that lights a fire under your arse and parks itself in your head for the weekend! Go! Go! Go!

All The Colours - Trigger     Rock, Alternative, Indie 22/11/2019
Their recently recorded 3rd album was produced by Grizzly Bear band member and producer Chris Taylor. The record is a nod to the 90s alt-rock they grew up listening to.
This song completely ignores any concept of grace, it is a portrait of a man on the edge who needs to feel power and has chosen the most barbarous and sadistic way of expressing it.

Alula Blue - Sunlight     Rock, Pop, Folk, Alternative 22/11/2019
A group very much in their infancy, Alula Blue provide the kind of malleable and ear-pricking quality that a band emerging from a Brisbane suburb is famous for.
‘Sunlight’ IS somewhat of an uplifting ode to being forced away from someone you care about. While that sense of hopelessness does initially strike, an even stronger sense of future optimism emerges, reflecting a prevailing feeling of freedom and love for each other and the people who support us.

Ben Catley - Aotearoa     Rock, Instrumental, Roots, Alternative 22/11/2019
Infectiously high energy, feel-good solo artist from Scarborough Beach, WA.
With hypnotic guitar riffs, deep synth drones and a huge atmospheric outro, this instrumental is a dedication to the array of wild and mesmerising encounters while touring the north island of New Zealand (traditionally known as 'Aotearoa').
