Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Stephen Bailey - Distance     Rock, Psychedelic, Pop, Chill 26/02/2019
Stephen Bailey is the single from Perth based psych lords Mt. Mountain. His solo work is a sprawling mix of psych pop, indie and slowcore.
Distance heralds a new stylistic direction for the Mt. Mountain frontman - it’s sonically expansive and lush with Stephen’s voice up close, personal and nicely saturated. Layered intertwining synths flutter along with chugging bass and drums just behind the beat. Bailey’s falsetto is wistful, barely there yet immediate.

Other tracks by Stephen Bailey:  Country Song  -  Day Dreamer
The Urban Sea - Underground Love     Rock, Soul, Roots 26/02/2019
The Urban Sea are a genre fluid 6-piece from Brisbane. Armed with an arsenal of instruments they create musically diverse, lyrically driven songs about life in the modern world.
Underground Love is a RnB/rock inspired modern love song set within a dating world where limitless options exist at the swipe of a thumb. It’s a shout-out to a generation who have struggled to find someone to connect with, despite oceans of possibility flooding across their iPhone screens.

Goldfish Smarts - The Bastard Soul Of Night     Rock 25/02/2019
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.
"I try to use words to convey scenes. First verse. Its a cold windy night, and I'm rueing the decision to bring an inappropriate jacket. Second verse. A simple example of the imbalance between rich & poor. The third... a religious image the makes me chuckle. Jesus and the Devil racing on Sydney's hopeless public transport system." Phil Kelly, Lyricist

Salibu Macey - Bonnie     Rock, Garage 25/02/2019
Salibu Macey is a three-piece mobile booty shaking service that concerns itself with the welfare of ankles, knees and hips of those inspired by indie-rock across the Adelaide metro area.
Salibu Macey are masters at restraint and release. 'Bonnie' could be indie-rock's most ferocious and slackadaisically tuneful tracks to arrive from the South Australian capital. The group's reconciliation of interwinding guitars and parallel rock elements pays homage to their musical alchemy at work. 'Bonnie' is more or less a reunion of antiquated indie-rock tropes at their most refined demonstrative.

AM Reruns - Thrill Me     Rock, Britpop, Pop 22/02/2019
Three-piece rock'n'roll band from Melbourne, playing reduced, stylish and modern guitar music. An idiosyncratic take on '70s LA punk rock with a sliver of Northern England drama.
A pounding piece of Californian power pop with a dose of romantic introspection and an irresistible chorus: "Thrill Me" has been a highlight of the band's live shows since its introduction into the set in mid-2018. "Thrill Me" and the upcoming album were recorded and mixed by Robert Muinos (Saskwatch, Little May) and mastered by John Davis at Metropolis, London.

FERLA deliver distinctive after-dark pop. Turning the personal into the confessional, FERLA combine the moments of late-night flirtation and morning-after revelation and distill it into their own sultry mess.
‘I’m Fine’ is a song about not being fine at all. It’s a dance party for the heartbroken, when being in the presence of other people’s love and romance makes you sick to your stomach. FERLA seek to take moments experienced in solitude and make them communal, and this song is an example of that ethos.

Synthetics’ debut is fuelled by the harsh and experimental guitars of Bramley and Patrick, blistering drumming from Wyatt, and Dunstan’s wild, unwavering howl.

“Mind-blistering” political/social topics burst and condense themselves into the raw, honest songs of ‘The Blistered Minds’, mixing with less serious stories of magic note books, surfing, influential bands and guitars.

The Trepids - Something's Got To Give     Rock, Punk, Garage 22/02/2019
With their lush grooves and psychedelic mayhem, the Trepids are both the life of the party and a companion for the lonely.
Something's Got To Give derives from an explosion of frustration towards the home-renting system. We've dealt with broken walls and doors, to drug labs hidden in the garden shed. Our shower walls were made of styrofoam and we would often get electric shocks during band practice. This is the state of Melbourne's housing industry. Something's got to give.
