Conspiracy of One - Don't Try the Mindset at Home     Rock, Funk, Pop, Soul 01/03/2019
Fun catchy songs about science, psychology and social commentary. A quirky twist on the familiar pop funk rock sound that's enjoyable both on the surface and beneath.
Pornography. Whether we love it or hate it, we just can't look away. Much of it expresses a view that women are there to be used and treated as objects.

With liberal use of sarcasm and satire, the central theme is to not look at this fake, idealised view of sex and take it as how real life should be.

Other tracks by Conspiracy of One:  Just a Theory  -  See Food Diet
darvid thor - Can I Be?     Rock, Pop, Psychedelic 01/03/2019

Other tracks by darvid thor:  Last Time  -  overgrown
DYER MAKER - Elastic     Rock, Pop, Roots 01/03/2019
Salt crusted, cruisy, oceanic and anthemic. DYER MAKER is sure to please fans of Ocean Alley and Sticky Fingers while remaining authentic and fresh.
Elastic elaborates on the flowing, deep, yet relaxed vibe Dyer coined in their previous single, Delay which premiered via The Music and landed the group a spot on HIT106.9. The track’s relatability, coupled with its salt crusted, partially reggae inspired riffs creates an easy and drifting listen not un-at-home soundtracking a fleeting summers evening.

Halcyon Drive - Reach     Rock, Pop 01/03/2019
After a highly productive 2018, Melbourne-based indie-rock trio Halcyon Drive return with their infectious new single ‘Reach'.
Opening with the swooning vocals of endearing front man Michael Oechsle, the hypnotising introduction falls effortlessly into a soaring blend of dreamy synths, fuzz-laden moog and syncopated percussion. As the track switches back and forth between its stripped back, sombre verses, ‘Reach’ finds its extra gear within its uplifting bridge, exploding with a myriad of joyous emotions.

Montana Wildhack - Leroy     Rock, Psychedelic, Atmospheric, Pop 01/03/2019
Perenially sunburnt and sleep deprived shoegazers from Fremantle with far too many effects pedals and never enough time making soothing music about dogs, love, avocados, and swimming.
Inspired by Aliza’s dad’s endearing failure to call the family dog by his name, Leroy is a homage to the friendship between human and dog scored by oscillating layers of guitars, synths, fuzz drenched in reverb, reverb drenched in fuzz, tender vocals and a crashing wave of soothing harmonies.

Other tracks by Montana Wildhack:  Maisy's Song  -  Waiting Room
Rachel Collis - To The Least Of These     Rock, Christian 01/03/2019

SEIMS - Translucence     Rock, Instrumental, Metal, Experimental 01/03/2019
SEIMS is the instrumental math-rock brainchild of Sydney multi- instrumentalist Simeon Bartholomew, and has turned into one of the country’s most explorational and formidable outfits.
Translucence is all about the progression of the EP. Translucence is about how the EP begins lost and struggling to find its way out of the absolute black, until the music finds its feet towards the big middle section of the song and almost heading “towards the light” with the giant mess it finishes on.

Sevenhurtz - Set You Free (Dreamtime)     Rock, Grunge 01/03/2019
Sevenhurtz have always pushed the boundaries of Rock like their latest single featuring The Man In The Hat, featuring on Didgeridoo Tony Turner

Melody & fuzz, presently abuzz

Ceres - Me & You     Rock 28/02/2019
Ceres. Melbourne based four piece creating emotive indie-rock music.
'Me & You' is a love song. It’s me tripping over words that are hard to say—and you, beautiful you, saying exactly what you mean. Me, a dumb shit young kid. And you, the love of my life. Tell ‘em all it’s not for them, they never knew. Say what you want, but it was me, and it was you."
