Jess Ribeiro - Love Is The Score Of Nothing     Rock 29/11/2018
Premiered on Double J's Mornings with Zan, Jess Ribeiro has released her new single ‘Love Is The Score Of Nothing’, out now via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
The new single is something of an indie-rock banger, signalling a new sound for an artist whose previous albums explored a kind of intricate folk-noire. This time round Ribeiro recalls the nonchalant coolness of the great French female vocalists of the 1960’s. Her vocal performance is detached while a delightful jangle of guitars, drums, keys and percussion swirls happily underneath.

Sleepy West - Blood & Wine     Rock, Alternative Country, Pop 29/11/2018
Sleepy West are a folk-inspired five piece from Bendigo. Their style isn’t defined, but Americana/country come to mind. The mix of country twang and pop hooks will stay with you.
This was written whilst driving out to meet up with my girlfriend, fully knowing it was “all” on the line, and that the conversation we needed to have could easily mean I’d be driving home a single. It sums up being torn between “sweeping it under the rug” and continuing to act like everything was fine even though it's tatters.

Track one and the first single is the title track “They Fed the Gryphon With Their Limbs”. Starting with sample loop that’s doubled by guitar, it creates its own momentum; an action which in peaks and gullies moves inexorably forward and back on itself again before coming to rest in a primordial trough.

darvid thor - Get Out     Rock, Psychedelic, Retro, Pop 29/11/2018
At times anxious and quietly anguished, tender and candid, Darvid makes skewed indie-rock music. It's woozy, introspective and intimate; a collection of jangled guitars, warped synths and warm tenor voice.
Darvid Thor delivers a skewed pop ballad, revealing a different side from his past singles. With fluid, floating textures and lyrics plucked from a head resting on a morning pillow, there’s an eerie intimacy to it. “‘Get Out’ is quite literally about trying to get out of your own way... out of your head."

Dyer Maker are an indie 5-peice from Newcastle NSW. If you're into anthemic surf rock, with a slight psychedelic twist, inquire within. Sitting between Ocean Alley and Arctic Monkeys.
The anthemic nature of Delay perfectly complements the track’s exploration into the human psyche and the ability to transcend situation due to self-discovery. Prominent imagery in this surf-rock sing along track, makes Delay the quintessential accompaniment of summer road trips.
