The Naxalites play deep and gritty psych-tinged garage rock. They are Keeping Music Evil for Music lovers in Melbourne and, thanks to online radio, the world.
Ten To One is a slightly mystical sounding rock song telling the story of the murder of the Nepalese royal family by tenth in line to the thrown, Prince Dipendra. He emptied the chamber of his M-16 into the royal family until he was King, then shot himself and died.

kellie lloyd - Your Heart Is A Hunter     Rock, Pop 29/02/2012
i write songs in alternate tunings and play live with just a drummer (for massive impact) or a whole band. I'm inspired by PJ Harvey, Swervedriver and Mazzy Star.
haunting organ sets the scene for the driving beat and subdued female vocals. the song moves and dances like a seductive siren drawing in the listener only to surprise them at the end. this song is ultimately a song of hope in letting your heart be free.

Charlie Horse - Dead Roses     Rock 28/02/2012
……“If Lucinda Williams had ever jammed with The Pretenders, I suspect it would have sounded a little like this – tasty.” whereangelsfear Tumbler.com
Dead Roses, a seemingly innocent slow waltz ballad but upon further listens it reveals the sinister side of the singers intentions. She seems to have accepted that there is no happy way out of this and is determined to take the object of her desire with her.

Sincere and effectively simple; The Floors’ raw and primitive live sound summons a similarly raw and primitive reaction... people dance. They sing along.
In the studio The Floors are a live band. They perform their songs together in a room, captured by a few German microphones and a friend with good ears. The life of the recording is the performance... You Got to Move!

Mood Swing started out as an electro pop tune that Fushia wrote years ago. They were convinced they could turn it into a big rock son. They kept the 80's handclaps though. Handclaps are cool.
