Dirt Hand - LION     Rock, Psychedelic, Folk, Jazz 17/11/2018
Nina Simone bludgeoning Bill Callahan over the head with a velour lampshade.
A song likens the passing of an uncle
to the defeat of a mighty lion by a gust of wind.
A song is dressed up in layers of rhythm,
each a variation on the other,
creating a vibrant beat tapestry.

Donna Amini - Big Machine     Rock, Garage, Grunge, Punk 17/11/2018
Raised on Persian music and classical violin pieces, Amini takes a broad range of influences and ropes them into a blistering sound that’s unlike anything else currently making the rounds.
The song's low-rolling rumble is designed to emulate the disorienting bustle of inner-city living; the grinding roar of guitars and fragmented words, like too many street signs. Amini's voice offers some clear direction, emerging through the guitar-driven thrum like a mesmerising tour guide.

Combining intricate production with authoritative guitar lines, the song breathes life into the indecisive 'Mary', whose trains of thought are perfectly represented by Feelds and Merpire's harmonious vocals.

The three-piece Alt-Prog band based in Brisbane, Australia, who formed in 2015, are today releasing something that has been in production/the creation phase for over a year.

Alongside that, they drew influence from the colourful scenes of Japanese film, Kwaidan, reflected emotion and story through colour - and aimed to combine these aesthetics to create a sense of surrealism in the outer-worldly, yet somehow remains oddly familiar.
