Donnarumma - Rollercoaster     Rock, Garage 31/10/2018
Hailing from Adelaide, South Australia, exhilarating three piece Donnarumma maintain a lofty rock attitude with angelic vocals, roaring bass and rumbling drums.
'Rollercoaster' is the most adrenalised track Donnarumma have done yet. It's proud, punchy and spares no backlash. It's a potent echo boom with the group dumping mulch and gravel of their florid rock. After the opening, the song unravels into a salvo of hook-filled, reverberating guitars and wailing rock operatics. This hard-hitting track turns the listener into a gelatinous ooze.

Lisa Caruso - Shake Baby Shake     Rock, Pop 31/10/2018
Sydney Artist Lisa Caruso has returned with her utterly unique vocal, bringing along brash guitars, and a tight and sometimes rip-roaring rhythm section reminiscent of a 90's childhood.
'Shake Baby Shake' acknowledges the challenges of living with an invisible illness, and through it, finding strength and resilience. Layered with brooding guitars, stark piano and a tight and sometimes rip-roaring 90’s kit, Lisa Caruso's utterly unique vocal swims between an honest cry and a chilled shaken falsetto.

LOCAL HERO - The Big Think (Single Version)     Rock, Pop, Chill, Electronic 31/10/2018
New project of Andy Clockwise & Mathew Gardner (Ernest Ellis) A mixture of Heartland- Warrior-Pop, 80's Post-Punk and New Wave, comparable to a dreamy pairing of Brian Ferry and Springsteen.
"Practicing the art of reinvention Clockwise, along with bandmate Mathew Gardner, formally presented themselves under their new musical persona of Local Hero with the single, “The Big Think.” sweet shades of 80s New Wave tones and Clockwise’s penchant for expressing, exploring and exorcising the human darkness - High Voltage Mag

Peabody - Julie     Rock, Pop, Garage 31/10/2018
Sydney’s brave soldiers of indie-noise-guitar pop, post-punk and rocknroll PEABODY return with their first new music in eight years.
"'Julie' is a song about our friend from years gone by. She was ("is", I assume) smart as chips and taught us a thing or two about life."

The Florets - Just Coast     Rock, Garage, Pop 31/10/2018
The Florets blend jangly indie rock with garage goodness, all the while highlighting a knack for melodic songwriting at its best.
Led by songwriter and vocalist Nick Dawes, the stamp The Florets put down on record here is a strong one. ‘Just Coast’ may indicate a kicked-back, chilled discourse but make no mistake, the way this band delivers their music is dynamic and immersive.

The Jimmy C - Baby Blue Sky     Rock 31/10/2018
Humorous, up-beat, catchy, power/pop/psychedelic/rock. Melbourne based ‘The Jimmy C’ opens a can of earworms that burrow deep and leave you smiling.
Listen to Do You Remember Walter by The Kinks, then Mr Blue Sky by ELO. I think the former is a blueprint for the later and it’s also a blueprint for this. Jangly guitars, tight drums and a catchy chorus.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Daniel Wiggins combines progressive rock, trip-hop and ambient music on his self-produced debut LP, 'In Anonymity'. Wiggins’ music has been described as being visually evocative, with a sense of narrative.
A song about the paradoxical nature of simultaneously wanting to project oneself while being petrified of losing one's sense of anonymity. The track fuses a rugged, half-swung rhythm section with dense rock orchestration and a sultry, at times paranoid vocal delivery.
