Esther Hazy - Stepping Stone     Rock, Psychedelic, Rock 14/01/2019
Australian/Canadian alternative band ranging from ambient indie-folk to psych rock. Like Bon Iver meets Radiohead with some Father John Misty and The Cars vibes. Contains members from Montreal and Melbourne.
A driving psych-rock song with jangly guitar riff. Deep Ian Curtis style lead vocals are supported by a fuzzy backing harmony and describe feelings of displacement, isolation and not feeling at home. The thick bass groove lays a foundation for a forward vocal delivery and the final verse breakdown makes way for an explosive finish.

Bigfoot Mafia - Iceman     Rock, Garage 11/01/2019
3 piece hard rock band for fans of Motorhead, Nirvana, Foo Fighters etc
Iceman is a warning about the dangers of using the drug ice, but it's written from the perspective of the dealer or perhaps even the drug itself. Sinister verses combine with a powerful chorus to deliver the promise of a toxic relationship with Ice.

Martin Frawley - Chain Reaction     Rock, Pop 09/01/2019
Martin Frawley steps into the spotlight for Undone at 31, his first album as a solo artist and the start of a new chapter for the Melbourne songwriter.
To reinforce this new path forward and move away from the familiar, the Twerps co-founder employed fresh, imaginative approaches in the recording studio. That experimentation included a subtractive process of layering three drum takes as the foundation for the Jacques Dutronc-vibing track before pulling out pieces like a Jenga tower to arrive at the final result.

SUDS - TRUMPauline     Rock, Punk, Grunge 09/01/2019
SUDS are a socially-aware political punk rock band to party to in the age of outrage.
'TRUMPauline' is the first DIY single from Melbourne/Canberra three-piece SUDS' new self-produced recordings. It's a band bewildered by certain politicians and the far-right supporter base that voted them in. But it's also a punk rock banger to party to.

Flight To Dubai - Hail Damage     Rock, Punk, Garage 08/01/2019
Sydney's post punk 4-piece, Flight To Dubai deliver a earnestness and vigour performance featuring baritone lead vocals. A deeply satisfying contrast of rock n roll entice and delicate early blues.
Hail Damage stares down the barrel of an empty gun; broken promises and a friendship betrayed sit like stray bullets in the palm of a cold hand. Remorse and social self-exclusion are perfect companions for those deserving, but how long can one person hold onto guilt?
