TORK - Wasting My Time     Rock, Grunge 19/07/2019
TORK. Adelaide 3 piece. Grunge and various by-products.
If you've ever been stuck doing something you thought was right. But it doesn't mean a thing.
If you've ever been so blindly committed that you forget what really matters.
If you've ever lost independence to a cause, a process, an institution, a social norm, a respected figure.
Have you been wasting your time?

Bushing - Vacillate     Rock, Garage, Folk, Atmospheric 18/07/2019
Music that is "sharpened to attack the unfruitful ideologies of the Atomic age." - Cameron Menegoni, 2SER 107.3FM SYDNEY
A grand-historical narrative connecting the destruction of the cave-meditating Pythagoreans to Plato, and the annihilation of heavenly otherness in Luther, to the economies of resentment conjured up by 2GB and its ilk.

Four Lions - Gone     Rock, Alternative Country, Roots, Britpop 18/07/2019

all female Sydney 4-piece The Buoys have a lot to send to your ear holes by way of unrelenting fuzzy guitar tones.

Full Flower Moon Band - Roadie     Rock, Garage, Pop 17/07/2019
If you ask the oracle about Full Flower Moon Band, it's the story of 28 year old rock prodigy/ outcast/ loner/ Babyshakes Dillon, the underground producer and multi-instrumentalist.
Babyshakes is driving down the highway and sees an apparition of a woman on a horse. She gets out of her car and prepares to do a seance (another day, another demon). She opens the back of her boot and pulls out her weaponry to release the spirit. She succeeds, but further down the highway, the apparition appears again.

PLANET - Never New     Rock 17/07/2019
Over the last few years the Sydney four-piece has gone from playing local pubs in their hometown to playing bigger and bigger stages across the globe, including The Great Escape
The new single is a vibrant, effervescent song. Its head bopping, tambourine-shaking rhythm instantly casts it as a live set highlight, as lead singer Matty Took’s voice soars through zooming guitar riffs and angelic synth chords that sing out like a choir, to once again reinforce that cosmic quality that is quintessentially PLANET.

Primary Collective - Grass Is Greener     Rock, Pop, Roots 17/07/2019

Recorded at Merredin's historic Cummins Theatre, Grass Is Greener is the first track released from WA Music's forthcoming "Demos from The Wheatbelt" compilation due for release August 16th. An upbeat indie rock tune, Grass Is Greener is a tongue in cheek criticism and written from the POV of someone who is always dissatisfied, thinking there's something better around the corner.

Rocket Science - I Hate Hate     Rock, Garage, Punk 17/07/2019
Australia's favourite garage-psych-punks are back from outer-space: tougher, wilder and sharper than ever. They have a new record in the can and this is single #2.
‘I Hate Hate’ is the blistering second single off Rocket Science’s upcoming album Snake. An “ode” to the Outrage Industrial Complex penned by bassist Dave Gray, who incidentally delivers a bassline that will scorch your ears. A sneering malediction with a beat you can dance to. It’s a high energy, garage-punk punch up. Dig it.

4 Piece rock/punk band. Raw raucous rock with a few refined edges. Dual guitar think The Clash meets Motorhead!

Bathhouse - Past the Dark Star     Rock, Psychedelic, Pop 16/07/2019

Dumb Things - Today Tonight     Rock, Pop 15/07/2019

Brisbane band Dumb Things return with the first taste of their sophomore album Time Again, lead single Today Tonight polishing their patented sunburnt pop to a sheen whilst retaining the edges. Luminous guitars swirl, underpinned by lyrics casting a simultaneously romantic/cynical eye on the work, TV, sleep, repeat cycle.

This first single release, Dysthymia, was written by Kyle McMenemy in 2016 and recorded by the band in their studio in 2018. This song is about overcoming long term depression. In this way, the song has a paradoxical music theme; in being somewhat dark musically in one sense but with a bright beat and positive lyrics in the other.

Bianca Blackhall - White Leather     Rock, Alternative Country, Pop 12/07/2019
Bianca Blackhall is a singer/songwriter from nipaluna/Hobart. She shares her distinctly Australian stories through mercurial poeticism to the backing of her ragtag country infused, pub-rock band.
A dreamy, mid-tempo, Outback anthem. Bacardi, dirt bikes and cashed up Bogans. This is the song that plays on the jukebox at the end of the night and the only person left to dance with is your Ex. You oblige...

Other tracks by Bianca Blackhall:  Iron Ore  -  Sharks
