Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Bitumen - Lash     Rock, Industrial, Punk, Goth 10/10/2018
Grandiose post-industrial power.
Lash is the first track from Discipline Reaction, the much anticipated debut LP from Melbourne based post-punk industrial unit Bitumen. This free-standing document was recorded at Magnet Studios in Coburg, and produced by the band with the help of Alexander Anglias (The Faculty, Ill Globo) – the phantom fifth member, and realised with the guidance of Peter Bramley (Vacant Valley).

Other tracks by Bitumen:  Twice Shy  -  Sicker Dowry
Command A Panda - No One's Fucking Steering     Rock, Hardcore, Blues, Punk 10/10/2018
Duo band making music that sounds old with a little something new, with an outlandish disregard to following any normal genre. Expect a healthy dose of distorted rifts belting drums.
In a nutshell, the song is about how we’re all just kinda wingin’ it and it doesn’t matter how old you are, at the end of the day, we’re all just having a go

Me & Pete - The Road We Come     Rock, Folk, Blues, Alternative Country 10/10/2018
Rousing rhythms and lyrics that tell a story make the music of Me & Pete. Add growling harmonica, mellow flute, vibrant sax and smooth harmonies and that is the band.
The road we come is a sharp, electric folk song that rambles with to an upbeat rhythm and a haunting interplay of flute and sax. The lyrics drift back to times along the road and the lessons taken into the future.

Other tracks by Me & Pete:  Maddi  -  Only Time Will Tell
SARSAPARILLA - POSTCARD     Pop, Rock, Electronic, Gay-Aligned 10/10/2018
SARSAPARILLA is a bedroom producer based in Melbourne. They draw influences from far afield to create beats using found sounds and samples.
SARSAPARILLA teamed up with Sydney based singer/songwriter Rubi, and producer Pete Holz (Gang of Youths, Peking Duk) to produce this first offering - a dreamy, melancholy pop soundscape.

The track POSTCARD is an homage to lives lost and possible futures never seen. It draws on the struggles of conformity and the desire to belong in an increasingly complex world.

The Dunes - Mountain     Rock, Psychedelic, Garage, Experimental 10/10/2018
The Dunes have quickly gained a reputation in Adelaide as the town's leading psych-drone-fuzz band. The 5 piece have just released their debut album, mixed in US by Brett Orrison.
Mountain is 7 minutes of driving bass & drums, reverb/delay drenched guitars, and 60s inspired keys, with Stacies vox slipping in and out of delayed modulation. It builds to the end of the song, described by one person as "if Fun House era Stooges played Hawkwind". The Dunes are Stacie Reeves, Matt Reiner, Adam Vanderwerf, Jess Honeychurch and Clair O'Boyle.

Other tracks by The Dunes:  New Old  -  When You Wake Up
TIMI TEMPLE - 2pm For Breakfast     Rock, Psychedelic, Garage, Punk 10/10/2018
TIMI TEMPLE is a DIY musician from Sydney... He blends Garage/Surf/Psych into a melting pot of fun. His songs usually have social/reflective commentary delivered with tongue in cheek attitude!
2pm For Breakfast is Timi Temple’s latest foray into deep lyrics intertwined with infectious cheekiness

The song is inspired by the creative lifestyle, where waking hours vary and routine breakfast times are non-existent!

While this song is fun and upbeat, Timi delivers some political insight into our modern world of capitalism and obsession with wealth through deep intrinsic lyrical prowess.

Alithia - Diamonds     Rock, Psychedelic 09/10/2018
AlithiA, meaning truth in Greek, was formed by singer John Rousvanis in 2004. The band’s momentum gathered steam, becoming a core component of Australia’s progressive rock scene revival.
AlithiA founder and lead singer John Rousvanis says the new single ‘Diamonds’is about the influences of life’s circumstances and the journey one may wish to take. It encompasses the many states of mind consciously/unconscious, in dream states, being aware of it all at once, while at the same time losing all rationality, faith, and falling into internal collapse and despair."

Courtney Barnett - Small Talk     Rock, Folk 09/10/2018
Courtney Barnett shares ‘Small Talk’, an unheard and unreleased track from the sessions which gave birth to Tell Me How You Really Feel, out now via Milk! Records/Remote Control.
The surprise track itself shows Courtney’s stylistic versatility as she winsomely sings over a walking bass-line before launching into joyful a series of ramshackle jams and choruses. It’s a song as skilfully infectious and charming as she’s ever recorded.

MNMM - This Song Is A Lie     Rock, Ambience, Experimental 09/10/2018
