Eli Wolfe - She's like an ocean     Blues, Folk, Roots, Rock 02/07/2010
Eli Wolfe is taking his original groove-based and hypnotic songs and captivating instrumentals around the country on his Community Australia Tour. Playing 100 shows this year, a debut album's coming!
'She’s like an ocean’ is based around the instant connection sometimes felt when two people meet each other for the first time, and pondering on why this may be so.

The track features Eli on nylon guitar and stomp, accompanied by cello and harpsichord.

Heidi Everett - AWOL     Rock, Pop, Country, Folk 02/07/2010
A musical performance over ten years in the making with only the very best musicians engaged in this epic adventure, with well known Melbourne songwriter Heidi Everett at the helm.
A highly contagious rock song with the pulse of a galloping horse, AWOL beats out with the energy of an emergency. Lyrics like "Where has all your fight gone? You're not the person that I remember" soar immensely into the final chorus. Heidi's voice is Blondie meets ACDC. Pure fun!

Other tracks by Heidi Everett:  Running Away  -  Another Day
Nathan Kaye - Couldn't Put You Down     Rock, Roots, Blues 02/07/2010
Kaye's music is as raunchy and unrelenting as it is haunting and deeply touching. His Lapsteel-slide guitar work is flawless. His voice scarred with years of a life worth living.
The Zepplin-esque "Couldn't Put You Down" is written about that early 'honeymoon' phase of a relationship when you're doing it several times a day! The Lapsteel slide guitar solo is as unrelenting as teenage lovers on a secluded beach.

Other tracks by Nathan Kaye:  Tear In Your Hand  -  Thought You Were Real
Once Upon a Time in the West - Fall In Line     Rock, Blues 02/07/2010
Blues/rock duo based in Hobart, Tasmania

Shadow Thieves - Never Seen Today     Rock, Pop 02/07/2010
Shadow Thieves vigorous expression of music is both thought provoking & inspiring enough for even the non-dancers amongst us to rise from our perches & throw our limbs about.
A story about those times in life were you know you have seen better days and there seems to be know answers for the muddle of this present day you find yourself in. The days where you never really see anything but gray matter.

Other tracks by Shadow Thieves:  Mystery  -  Promise
BARB - Leo     Rock 26/06/2010
BARB is a proper band! It's an Antipodeans darling line-up; Liam Finn, Lawrence Arabia, Connan Mockasin, Eliza-Jane and Seamus Ebbs.
Leo pays homage to the great actor Leonardo DiCaprio.. written from the perspective of Connan's 4 year old alter-ego DON DICAPRIO

"Don" ad-libbed all the lyrics on the spot and they over dubbed the rest of the band singing along later. BARB’s homage to the great Leonardo DiCaprio.


Other tracks by BARB:  Alcoholic Darling

White Woods - Ballet Tea     Pop 17/06/2010
Hobart vs Melbourne quintet playing glacial, white-noise driven indie which recalls Flying Nun bands of the Eighties and Rough Trade heroes alike.
Grainy indie-rock with a crystaline finish.

Little Red - Rock It     Rock, Pop 15/06/2010
Little Red came together in Melbourne five years ago, when five very different musicians came together united by a love for infectious hooks, taut rhythms and indelible melodies.
Underpinned by a sly disco bass hook and spry piano, ‘Rock It’ builds from the unhurried verse to an effortlessly anthemic chorus that grows, via the band’s trademark four-part harmonies and thick distorted guitar, into a widescreen aural picture.

Having supported Kisschasy, Katy Perry and Snow Patrol, alternative rockers BRITTLE captured their dynamic live sound and energy on their new EP “The Owls” Produced Mark Opitz (Cold Chisel, INXS)
Teenage wolf is a guitar driven rock song with a positive message and great hooks. The song was written by brittle and promotes everyone's right to be different. Think 30 Seconds to Mars, Greenday and My Chemical Romance and Muse.

Other tracks by Brittle:  Burn My Bridges  -  Weak Spots

The Stu Thomas Paradox - Shake Your Derriere     Rock 28/05/2010
The Stu Thomas Paradox is the hot-wired voodoo-surf group, and latest vehicle for the music of Stu Thomas (Kim Salmon & The Surrealists, Dave Graney & The Lurid Yellow Mist).
A summer hit waiting to happen, this tune has sly rock groove, and oodles of tasty space. File this one under "SEXY". An invitation to dance, sing and get down and dirty. Tips of the hat to Iggy, The Stones, and Duane Eddy.

Other tracks by The Stu Thomas Paradox:  Lost In Space  -  Love Charm
The ReadyMades - Horatio     , Rock, Blues 26/05/2010
The ReadyMades' quirky blend of original songs reflect the band's sense of fun and the ridiculous. Difficult to pigeonhole, they describe themselves as pop, punk, funk, story telling genre benders.
All jangling, toe tapping, pub stomping ditty about lust gone wrong. Very good for radio.

Other tracks by The ReadyMades:  Wolfman  -  Rip Off
