The Woodland Hunters - The Thoughts of Chairman Jim     Rock, Psychedelic, Blues, Alternative Country 14/03/2019
The Woodland Hunters are a guitar band from Melbourne, Australia. Two members also play in The Sand Pebbles. The Thoughts of Chairman Jim was recorded and produced by Shane O’Mara.
His name was Jim. He lived in a cul-de-sac. Most afternoons you’d see him, JD and Coke in one hand, spliff in the other, smiling at some cosmic joke. He’d be roaming his front yard, spitting trippy monologues and looking for all the world like Dennis Hopper on the banks of Colonel Kurtz’s outpost in ‘Apocalypse Now’. Minus the pants.


This Time Only - Vintage Dress     Rock, Punk, Garage 14/03/2019
High energy emo-punk that remains quintesentially Australian. Big guitars and big drums backed by melodic and emotional songwriting.
Vintage Dress delivers raw honesty and emotional vulnerability. The track, which begins slowly but soon reaches its crescendo, is reminiscent of the early ’00s melodic scene.

Classic punk riffs and hooky melody's have this penned as one of the band's big sing-alongs.

Tropical F*ck Storm - The Planet of Straw Men     Rock 14/03/2019
Tropical F**k Storm (aka TFS) are Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin (The Drones), Lauren Hammel (High Tension) and Erica Dunn (Harmony, Palm Springs).
The Planet of Straw Men revives TFS’s art-punk manoeuvres with a political snarl that pulls your head in, without calling you out. Lauren Hammel’s drums unwind like a sonic mirage of a call-to-battle. The swagger of Fiona Kitschin’s bassline is as insecure as a parliamentary promise. And Erica Dunn’s uncorked guitars frolic throughout the track like a shit-faced fist fight.

Zolton - Some Kind Of Fantasy     Rock, Pop, Retro 14/03/2019
In 2016, Zolton sought out talented young Sydney producer, Taka Perry, and began work on a new musical project that incorporated big 80s-styled synths, beats, and melodic hooks.

Cedarsmoke - F*&king Up     Rock, Garage, Grunge 12/03/2019
Grab a bit of charm and grace and rub it in the dirt, put some grease over it and you’ll have something like this Brisbane-based slacker-rock 5-piece, Cedarsmoke.
In their self-proclaimed drab and despairing world, this one is about trying not to f*&k up.

The Empty Threats - Magnolia     Rock, Psychedelic, Garage 12/03/2019
Leave it up to The Empty Threats to fully embrace a cataclysmic sonic earthquake. The Adelaide four-piece declare a pretence of maligned, experimental rock and visceral psych embellishments.
‘Magnolia’ represents the struggle of keeping a positive mind set in an ever-disintegrating world. A subtle and beautiful flower that has survived for a thousand millenia only to find a point of destruction in the 21st century due to human existence.

That spooky surf indie-pop western sound... The Double Happiness is two couples from Bris Vegas. Reverb-a-riff-ic!
