The four-piece have released, “Leaver” a rousingly uplifting and eloquently relaxed track which is a perfect backdrop for our approaching summer.

Take the charismatic energy found in alternate rock and blend it with the spirited groove of reggae and you’ll begin to understand the charm of The Sea Gypsies.

Lake Myer - War     Rock, Punk 05/10/2018
Lake Myer are the subterranean lurkers coursing through the city; seeking to reclaim rock'n'roll from the clean and lucrative department store shelves and return it to the swamp.
"War is fighting for the person you love without sacrificing your dignity. It’s not picking up the shit that other people put down in front of you. It’s about playing a straight bat in a twisted game, because whatever happens, you’ve got your own back, and if you’re lucky, maybe the one who’s on your team will have it too."

Steve Balbi - Modern Love     Rock, Pop 02/10/2018
The music of singer, composer, performer and producer Steve Balbi mines a kaleidoscope of life at the margins, transcending rock and pop as he coalesces sentimentality and soul.
Composer and producer, Steve Balbi mines a kaleidoscope of life at the margins. In Modern Love, Balbi casts an eye over modernity, reflecting upon love in a world dictated by technology and technocracy. Transcending rock and pop as it coalesces sentimentality and soul, Modern Love fuels an irreverent riff that carves a dirty rotten groove through verse, melody, madness.

2 Inch Tape - Apollo     Rock, Roots 01/10/2018
Melbourne band 2 Inch Tape adheres to an aesthetic of yesteryear; real instruments played with an authenticity that is often abandoned in our technology-enabled times.

Slumlawwd - Set Timez??     Rock, Punk, Grunge 01/10/2018
slumlawwd music is sloppy and also just slop. songs put down before they reach two minutes and achieve sentience. yelped not sung. hit not played. laughing at not laughing with.
Inspired by the question repeated on gig event pages across the nation, SET TIMEZ?? is a minute and forty-seven seconds of scruffy mess masquerading as a song. The scratchy guitar, blown-out vocals and pestering sentiment will be familiar to anyone who's ever been to a local gig on an underattended Thursday night.

Other tracks by Slumlawwd:  Hamish & Andy Suicide Pact  -  Eat People

I mean, apart from fame, money, and power, what's the point!?

Regular Band - Universal Dreams     Rock, Grunge, Pop, Garage 30/09/2018
Regular Band are a pretty punk, pretty grunge and pretty loud Nirvana-esque alt-rock three piece forged from Brissy..
A song about trading in our metaphorical "fences" for peace... a universal dream we all share, however, seems as though it will only ever exist in a fairy tale.

Taking cues from the likes of The Dandy Warhols, Gorillaz and Kid Cudi, ‘To The Moon’ combines themes of hip hop, indie-rock, dub and electronica. Whilst melding an array of eclectic influences, the brooding new cut simultaneously shines a light on the group’s ability to deliver on a cohesive sound.

Lachlan X. Morris - Stray Dog     Rock, Psychedelic, Pop 27/09/2018
Like a digital watch in a spaghetti western, hovering in purgatory somewhere between future-psych and old-school pop traditions, Lachlan X. Morris draws on songwriting vintage that's long lost and buried.
Opening with energetic drums, ‘Stray Dog’ fuses a classic rock instrumentation with psychedelic synth lines to create an immersive rock banger. His understated vocals float across the arrangement of the track, before ending with an encompassing and intriguing instrumental outro.

Lifeblood - Oscillate     Rock, Hardcore 27/09/2018
Formed in 2015, the band quickly recorded and released their demo 'Send Me Far Away' and began subjecting audiences across the east coast to their particular brand of abrasive music.
"...is about remaining calm and collected while the world becomes more and more insane as the years go by. In 2018 it can be quite hard to switch off from world events and clickbait articles but life will always be better when you focus on you and your passions over the lowest common denominator gossip and trash."
