Filthy Lucre - Prescription     Rock, Grunge, Metal 08/07/2019
Filthy Lucre are a duo set to challenge the limits of how big a band can sound with only two members.
“Prescription” is everything Filthy Lucre but distilled and condensed into a faster paced, harder hitting, and more aggressive piece than the band has put out previously. Big riffs, barbaric drums, and captivating vocals make this single a standout call-to-attention in the world of stoner/desert rock.

Life Strike - Pages     Rock 08/07/2019
Post punk from Melbourne Australia, featuring members of Deaf Wish and Dollar Bar.
Inspired by the Flying Nun sound of his homeland, Life Strike's Nick Pratt delivers a vocal which evokes a writer on the edge of town, recording his own mundane thoughts... before setting it all on fire. It represents a new direction for Pratt, best known for his snarling punk anthems penned during his four albums with Deaf Wish.

Tetsuians - Chump Change     Rock, Garage, Psychedelic, Retro 08/07/2019
Tetsuians are extra-terrestrials masquerading as humans. Not duplicates, but distant kin making slightly left of centre music existing somewhere between Superchunk and 13th Floor Elevators… When the lift is stuck!

The Witching Hour - Under My Skin     Rock, Metal 08/07/2019
The Witching Hour is a band from NSW who write poetic songs that can stem from melodic haunting music to hard Blues based rock.
The track opens with a grinding riff that grabs hold of you from the start and refuses to let go.

DC Cardwell - I Am Still The Same     Rock, Folk, Pop 07/07/2019
DC Cardwell is a Tasmanian artist, originally from Northern Ireland, whose distinctive and affecting voice is perfect for his songs which take an honest and often wry look at life.

Unusually, the song is written from the point of view of a person with locked-in syndrome. However, the chorus lifts the mood to one of positivity.

Fingerless - Tambourine Addict Who Plays The Drugs     Rock, Psychedelic, Garage, Folk 06/07/2019

Black Aces - Feverdreams     Rock, Rock 05/07/2019
"Black Aces is like getting a new vintage AC/DC in 2017! ...there ain't nothing wrong with that!... My new turn to album. Anywhere But Here" - Dee Snider, Twisted Sister
Fast paced rocker in the vein of the Australian rock greats that have come before them, married with Black Aces signature sound and Tyler Kinder’s distinctive and unique vocals, ‘Feverdreams’ is a self-deprecating soundtrack to the hangover from hell and catches Black Aces in all too familiar territory; waking with a pounding headache, very possibly on the verge of death.

I was in the city and went to a cafe

We had a 5 minute conservation about life in general
then she got a phone call and left.
I was left wondering who this stranger was and where life was taking her.
