Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
White Water - Big Fat Money     Rock, Punk, Grunge, Hardcore 21/08/2019
White Water’s 3rd EP is carving out territory in the heavy high energy Oz rock genre. It features strong vocal harmonies, ripping guitar riffs, tasty bass lines, and dynamic drumming.
The title track of the EP is glorious punk, strongly opposing the top end of town's trickle down theory. A clever, quirky tune sure to see fat cats and bankers slinking to the darkest corner of the venue and considering abandoning their misguided political aspirations. The songs feature at times almost spooky female vocals that add a mysterious element.

Other tracks by White Water:  Highway man  -  Road KIll
YEEVS - Dancing String     Rock, Folk 21/08/2019
Since the band’s inception in 2015, YEEVS have become a captivating force on Sydney’s indie scene; emotive live shows positioning the band as ones to watch on the East Coast
The urgency of the single springs forth instantly in Bradley Cork’s distinguishable vocals, while the percussion and rhythmic progressions mirror the punch packing music by the likes of Boy & Bear, Modest Mouse and The Teskey Brothers.

Other tracks by YEEVS:  That Side  -  Common Ground
Youth Group - Cusp     Rock 21/08/2019
Forming in the late 1990s, the band released four critically acclaimed albums – Urban & Eastern (2001), Skeleton Jar (2004), Casino Twilight Dogs (2006) and The Night Is Ours (2008).
Having relocated to the UK with his young family, chief songwriter and singer/guitarist Toby Martin rented the space expecting to write a very English solo record. Instead what came out was a body of work that not only felt distinctly like a Youth Group album, but was largely concerned with Australia and missing home.

Fractured Minds - Crave     Rock, Pop 20/08/2019
old school rock band from the rural town of Bermagui located on the far south coast of NSW

Old Cities - Postcards     Rock, Pop 20/08/2019
“It’s deep, passionate and moving. A piece of gorgeous art.” Triple J Unearthed, Claire Mooney (‘Again’, 2018)
The pacing of the track builds carefully, buoyed by White’s deep vocal and self-handled production. With the marriage of synths and percussion, ‘Postcards’ has a slightly 80’s throwback hint to it. Like artists including Bleachers, Yeasayer and City Calm Down, Old Cities creates music in a dreamy soundscape that draws the listener in from the jump.

The Good Minus - I'll Decide For You     Rock 20/08/2019
The Good Minus are a Melbourne based all-singing power-trio. With songs featuring intricate three-part harmonies, the band’s style can be described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.
I’ll Decide For You is the second single from the Good Minus’ debut album. It is about people being insincere and making decisions about what they think is best for others. The song was recorded and engineered by David Kean and mixed by Greg J Walker (Machine Translations). It was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Studios (NY).

Me in a dream - Me in a dream     Rock, Atmospheric, Soundscapes, Experimental 19/08/2019
We're a Mornington Peninsula based band, creating soundscapy, stargazy moments. Our sound has its roots in electronic, folk, ambient and experimental rock, combined to make a magical experience
Me in a dream is an evolving dreamscape that begins with ethereal textures and distant voices. As rhythmic patterns start to grow within the soundscape, a repeating mantra appears until the song bursts into life in a glorious anthem of beautiful confusion. The words are disjointed and meaningless but heartfelt and urgent, describing an unattainable sense of belonging.

Pixel - Upside Down     Rock, Experimental, Atmospheric 19/08/2019
Pixel aka Pixel Music Production is an informative, collaborative, contribution audio and media project orchestrated by local Toowoomba musician and producer Sam McConochie.

Pure Milk - Expectations     Rock, Garage, Punk, Pop 19/08/2019
Influenced by the DIY ethic of the underground scene, writing songs self-described as “wholesome indie punk tinged with slacker rock” where strong, emotionally fuelled lyrical wordplay remain the forefront.
As previous single “Palm Beach,” continues to receive love on radio and Spotify, including 6-weeks on the editorial playlist Local Noise, new single “Expectations” dances and staggers its way into the homes of countless youths. Through sharp, concise vocals, Lewis Nitschinsk the bands songwriter, describes the addictive plight of binge-drinking your Friday night away around cheap patio tables.

Taleena Peck - Long Time Coming     Rock, Pop, Garage, Folk 19/08/2019

Fierce Mild - Song He Never Wrote     Rock, Atmospheric, Psychedelic, Instrumental 16/08/2019
Comparisons aside, the music and artwork of Fierce Mild explore on the idea of waking the sleeping unconscious, and separating from the constructed world around us.
A suicidal contemplation, an attempt to escape the physicality of Dasein (Being) 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.

Singer songwriter Phil Martin. Writing powerhouse Melodic rock Tunes

Private Function - Shut Up     Rock, Garage, Punk 16/08/2019
Melbourne punk misfits Private Function have generated a fierce national following at a dizzying speed thanks in equal parts to their schoolboy charm and commercial contempt.
A snarling punk number taken from Melbourne punk misfits Private Function's debut LP, St Anger.

Rya Park - Bitch     Rock, Pop 16/08/2019
Rya Park's last two singles Tokyo and Act Your Age were spun on triple j, RRR and PBS radio. triple j Unearthed also featured Rya Park as a spotlight artist.
Bitch opens with slow, sparse and distorted electric guitar as Park sings about her vulnerabilities, anxieties and struggles with depression. Her reflections are emotion-heavy, delivered with sweetness and drawl reminiscent of early 90's PJ Harvey. But when the band kicks in Park sounds anything but vulnerable, rather, she is powerful in her self-reflection which creates a stunning, stirring dissonance.

St Joan - Ride me to School     Rock, Acoustic, Folk 16/08/2019
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.
A softly strung, but emphatically performed ballad, "Ride me to School" shines a light on the challenges of parenting and the perspective of a son during separation. As cracks begin to appear, someone who was once your hero begins to look more like the villain. Memories become that much more important to remind you of the person they really are.
