The Touch - Shot     Rock, Punk, Dance, Electronic 03/03/2010
If you combined the interlocking riffs of Television with the electronic elements of Bloc Party it might sound something like The Touch.
Shot is the first taste of their work with producer Darren Cross (Gerling, The E.L.F), a more mature sound melding their earlier punk tinged dance rock with an undertone of electronica.

A sonic explosion that will take you on a journey to an uncharted land...

El Duende - Creatures     Rock, Pop 24/02/2010
Great songs, great arrangements, brilliant brass section and violin, make this band sound like a cross between the Saints and the Go-Betweens
The tone is set with the rousing opener, Creatures. It's joyous and romantic, but also melancholy and elegiac. It's designed for an adrenaline rush, and it owes a little something to the Saints' Know Your Product.

Other tracks by El Duende:  Trying  -  Lights of Town
Twelve Foot Ninja - Beneath The Smiles     Rock, Metal, World 24/02/2010
Exciting alternative-rock act with so many layers, it’s a wonder they only hit the Melbourne a year ago. An engaging blend of metal, dub, yacht rock, funk & world music.
Opening with a mysterious Eastern flavour, the thumping drums start to draw you in - before the anthemic chorus lifts you up & rouses you to join the ninja's plight to rid the world of evil.

Rudely Interrupted are one of Australia's truly unique indie rock acts. This band will challenge your thoughts on what's achievable in life and entertain your mind with their infectious hooks.
A pop/rock song about thinking before you act and taking responsibility for your own thoughts and actions. The song also contains a chorus key change, it just works out that way for us and so that’s the rebel in the song, "it’s hidden in the music" says Rory.

Taylor King is a one piece band without boundaries. Influenced by everything that can be seen, everything that can be heard; out to evoke the deepest of emotion and thought.

Martin Cilia - Cry For A Shadow     Rock, Cover Version, Instrumental, Pop 17/02/2010
Martin Cilia is guitarist with legendary Australian surf band - The Atlantics. Martin is one of the country's finest electric guitarists and a proven track-record as a songwriter.
"Cry For A Shadow" is the only published writing collaboration between John Lennon and George Harrison. And as an instrumental, even more curious. The suspicion is it was a sort of tribute to Hank Marvin and The Shadows. Regardless it is an enjoyable bouncy, memorable pop track.

Other tracks by Martin Cilia:  West Of Bondi  -  Ancestor
Whyte Zebra - Knock Knock     Folk, Rock, Roots, Blues 17/02/2010

Dear April - Red, Yellow and Blue     Rock, Pop 17/02/2010
Dear April: A talented Brisbane based alternative rock trio with two quality EPs and an exciting momentum behind them. Labelled as "intelligent pop" - they are definitely worth a listen.

Other tracks by Dear April:  Fall of Troy  -  The Crusader
Jimmy & The Mirrors - Romance     Pop, Rock 17/02/2010
Jimmy & The Mirrors bridge the generational gap between 70’s and 80’s nostalgia and more contemporary indie-pop with a killer live show to boot!
