Decapitators - Crystal Math     Rock, Grunge, Garage 21/06/2019
Decapitators have spent the last year forging a cult like following in the dingier parts of Sydney's inner west for their dark and harmonically intense brand of rock.
Drenched in delay and floating anguish, Crystal Math is a dynamic dancey guitar onslaught animating the contradictions and inner workings of a mind in trauma. The song sees layers leave and return to create space for vocalist Ivan Wowk to describe a tortured mental state, and then enhance his vocal depiction with jumps in his volume and manic guitar dissonance.

Garage Sale - Home     Rock, Grunge, Garage, Punk 21/06/2019
Garage Sale are a 3 piece indie rock band from Lennox Head.
'Home' is a high tempo indie rock banger! Fuzzy distorted guitar hooks and an addictive melody. Lyrics by frontman Dan Sullivan who only just turned 21 are about his time after leaving home in the city, hating its smell and noise and longing for home, its coast and swell. FFO Dinosaur Jnr, Teenage Fanclub, You am I

jade imagine release new single 'Remote Control' premiered via Gold Flake Paint. It's the second track from their debut album Basic Love, out Friday 2nd August via Milk! Records/Remote Control.
Jade McInally says, "'Remote Control' is a song about the conflict between reality & escape and the two worlds we live in; dreaming and denial in a world of practicalities and productivity. It's an exploration into synth territory. We wanted this track to be equal parts spooky and catchy, like taking a night-drive in a 1980's sci-fi film."

Kaloptic - Rusted     Rock, Grunge, Acoustic, Garage 21/06/2019

The sparse & haunting acoustic track uses a minimalist approach to draw the listener into the song and connect with the desperation and emptiness.

Look like a two-piece, sound like a five piece, move like a hair piece.
You know it’s time to move to the city when your only good cuisine options include day old chicken in a bain-marie. The song is about other things as well, but that stuff is boring so let’s talk about chicken instead
