Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Tyne-James Organ - Something New     Rock 13/06/2019
The Melbourne singer-songwriter built up an adoring fanbase by releasing unique and captivating cover songs from the likes of Childish Gambino, DMA’s, Chet Faker on his YouTube channel
The man known for wearing his heart on his tight, white sleeve has stomped hard on the pedals with the song possessing a raucous rock level that is a step up. With a chorus that would leave Arctic Monkeys or Royal Blood blue with jealousy, it’s certified to be the next big gun.

Wilding - Speed King of the Commonwealth     Rock, Britpop, Pop 13/06/2019
Wilding is Melbourne odd-pop songwriter Justin Wilding Stokes. His music is a joyous collection of bubblegum-fuzzpop, foppish Abbey Road psychedelia, Madchester grooves, Seventies piano-pop and Merseybeat smiles.
A high energy blast of bubblegum guitar-pop. It’s a joyful and affectionate song about riding a mobility scooter with wilful abandon. A celebration of triumph over adversity. It's one of a series of upcoming observational songs Wilding recently wrote about people who live in his neighbourhood of Coburg, Victoria. Like Alan Bennett jamming with Ray Davies.

Bad//Dreems - Double Dreaming     Rock 12/06/2019
Bad//Dreems return with Double Dreaming the first offering from their third studio album, due out in October through Farmer and the Owl.
A fevered vision of the end days, an absurd tale of Neil Young’s hearse, Samson and the Lion, identity politics and Celine. It is a fitting introduction to the forthcoming album, with its Devo-esque guitars and frenetic groove. Lyrically the album examines the ridiculousness of the post-truth world as it teeters on the edge of the apocalypse!

Goldfish Smarts - Streets That End In Blue Water     Rock 12/06/2019
Goldfish Smarts is a musical project based in Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches. Three guys, arguably past our prime, but dedicated none the less to making some sleek tunes.

If you live on Sydney’s northern beaches or once did and have moved away or you would like to understand the essence of living in such a beautiful place, this song is for you. Lots of beach vibes, iconic landmarks and a little dig at our former MP/PM

Kythira - Change My Mind     Rock, Pop, Alternative Country, Folk 12/06/2019
Kythira is the project of nomadic musician Alyssa Gengos, named after the Greek island of the same name (Κύθηρα).
‘Change My Mind’ “is one of those songs that happened all at once. It was scribbled in a late-night frenzy in my journal and worked out the next morning. I was feeling stuck – I hadn’t written a pop song for months – and so “Change My Mind” was almost a plea to myself to change my thought pattern.

A trio of outer space surfin' Brisbanes playing a swingin' cacophony of ravaged Tiki SurfBeat, under a blue Margarita Moon.
Brisbane psychedelic surf trio Marmaleene and the Moondusters have embarked on their first recorded voyage with 'Marms Visits The Moon'. Blasting off with an interstellar dub beat, it quickly builds to a crescendo, launching into an uptempo quasi-reggae surfbeat adventure. Reverb drenched wah-wah drips above popping and swirling hammond organ and pounding voodoo drums then bring you back into orbit.

Mick Medew & The Mesmerisers - Open Season     Rock, Pop, Punk, Psychedelic 12/06/2019
Ex Screaming Tribesmen Mick Medew leads Mick Medew & The Mesmerisers, pure rockin' power-pop from Brisbane.
First impressions count for a lot and lead track “Imaginary Friend” makes one from the get-go. Its spiralling guitar and killer backbeat are irresistible, Mick Medew’s vocal evoking better days. Strident and focussed.

Piss Factory - Bug     Rock, Punk, Garage 12/06/2019

Pure Milk have been described as ‘wholesome indie punk tinges of slacker rock’ (Parquet Courts/Car Seat Headrest/Courtney Barnett) where strong, emotionally fuelled lyrical wordplay remain at the forefront.
Pure Milk are ecstatic to announce the release of their latest single 'Palm Beach'. It's a loving, socially conscious ode to one of the Gold Coasts best (and grittiest) suburbs. Pure Milk blends elements of poignant Australian garage rock with stilted punk-esque guitars to craft this song well suited for a cruise down the Gold Coast highway.

Rude Rum - Pull Me In     Rock, Britpop 12/06/2019

The Sunday League - Rock n Roll     Rock, Pop 12/06/2019
The Sunday League make heart felt alt-rock that resonates from the Australian sounds of the late 80's to the American country jangles of the early 90’s.
Mid tempo yet upbeat, The Sunday League's first single 'Rock n Roll' off their brand new album ‘Make it What You Want' is full of young lost dreams, candid words of fear and fading hope and just thinking about Rock n Roll.

All The Colours - Tear It Down     Rock 06/06/2019
All The Colours are three piece alt-rock band from Melbourne, with over 20 years of music making history between them.
‘Tear It Down’, with its strong indie guitars and vocal harmonies reminiscent of early Interpol and Nirvana, highlights the strong dynamic All The Colours have fashioned for themselves over the course of two studio albums and years of touring between them. The end result is slick, finessed and goes down like the smoothest of whiskeys.

Syrup, Go On - Dreams     Rock, Pop, Psychedelic, Atmospheric 06/06/2019
Gold Coast-based, psychedelic dream pop outfit, Syrup, Go On boast luscious, orchestral soundwaves, providing a wall of sound that Phil Spector would approve of. 
'Dreams' brings Syrup, Go On’s early post-punk influences to the fore. The theme of one's inability to move on despite its necessity is as prevalent musically as it is lyrically. Ethereal pads interplay between swirling synthesizers and dreamy guitars, along with haunting backing vocals to create a melancholic yet hopeful atmosphere.


A Rioting Mind - Tonight     Rock, Alternative Country, Folk, Roots 05/06/2019
A Rioting Mind is the brainchild of songwriter Camilla Sullivan and guitarist Libby Ferris. Their 90’s inspired sound mixes between ambient folk and alternative rock.
Tonight is a song inspired by adventures through the city, across the coast, over mountains, with the windows down, blasting loud music and singing along with the one you love and not caring what other people think of it. With strongly narrative, passionate lyrics and soaring guitars it is a defiant anthem to seize the night to.

Melbourne punk rock duo Mannequin Death Squad create a huge sound that brings to mind panoramic rock sounds bursting out of a claustrophobic, tight space – the impact is volcanic!
Produced by Mark Opitz, San Fran is a perfect antidote for our times – it's a vicious punk rock attack on mindless consumerism, self-wealth obsession and denial of social responsibility. San Fran is an evolved example of the powerful punk rock sound that brings to mind panoramic rock sounds bursting out of a claustrophobic, tight space – the impact's volcanic!
