Alex The Astronaut - Waste of Time     Pop, Folk 31/07/2018
One of Australia’s most exciting and honest songwriters ALEX THE ASTRONAUT is thrilled to release her anticipated new single ‘Waste of Time’
Kicking off in true Alex the Astronaut fashion, with her now-signature, spritely acoustic strumming and conversational storytelling ‘Waste of Time’ bursts into handclaps, tambourine and wobbly blasts of Casio-synth towards a hook of a chorus that will earworm you for days. At the centre of Alex’s songs are her tumbling words that tell the real story.

MID CITY - Dead Broke Blues     Pop, Rock 01/05/2018
MID CITY make direct as f**k incendiary indie guitar pop.
The modern indie pop song - fizzing guitar melodies over urgent rhythms with lyrics that flickernbetween aimless angst and cathartic joy.

Says Joel, "We make hard pop to exorcise that constant second-guessing of yourself and win back some faith in ourselves... if only for 3:00.”

Heaps Good Friends - I Could Eat A Full Packet of Yo Yo’s     Pop, Electronic, Rock, Dance 22/11/2017
Heaps Good Friends – Emma Fradd (vocals / guitar), Nick O’Connor (bass / vocals) and Dan Steinert (drums) – are the trio known for delivering lyrically playful, synth pop treats.
‘I Could Eat a Full Packet of Yo Yo’s’ is fast moving, quick witted and a dancefloor pop banger, kicking off with driving bass lines and teasing arpeggios. And we have to say standing ovation, honourable mention - whatever you want to call it- the synth outro deservedly gets it.

Alex the Astronaut - Not Worth Hiding     Folk, Pop, Gay Alligned 12/09/2017
Sydney-based folk-indie singer and guitarist Alex the Astronaut is thrilled to announce her forthcoming second EP See You Soon, led by the incredibly moving new single ‘Not Worth Hiding’.
‘Not Worth Hiding’ is a coming of age song in its purest form. It documents a big realisation Alex had at aged 16 written into one of the catchiest songs you’ll hear bounded by thumping drums and simple chords. It’s a raw, deeply personal track about finding yourself.

Ben Wright Smith returns with latest single ‘Hellion Heeled’. The APRA award nominated singer-songwriter from Melbourne has delivered yet again with the release of his debut album ‘The Great Divorce’.
I was at a party with these punk rockers who were just posing the whole time. The next day I was teaching my friend’s dog to 'heel' or 'follow us'. I thought of the punks who’d been forced to obey the very thing they were pretending to be rebelling against.

Alex The Astronaut - Rockstar City     Folk, Electronic, Acoustic, Pop 24/02/2017
Alex the Astronaut (Alex Lynn) is a 21 year-old Australian folktronica songstress who currently resides in New York. The wondrous storyteller has today released her brand new single ‘Rockstar City’.
'Rockstar City' is a postcard home to my Mum about my first gig in New York City. I signed up to play at the famous Bitter End, where all the folk stars started out in the 1960s. This song's about taking everything in and celebrating the little wins.

Alex L'Estrange - Nothing To Hide     Rock, Pop 03/12/2016
Exceptional young songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist Alex L’Estrange has today announced his new single Nothing To Hide, a gritty mystery of a track lifted from his debut EP, Auchenflower.
'Nothing To Hide' is hazy, evoking a nebulous feeling of early Tame Impala, or even The Beatles of Revolver times. L’Estrange’s voice sits defiantly atop an intoxicating, guitar-driven instrumental that pulls towards the magnetic, soaring chorus.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Stephen Goodhew, FBi Radio, Sydney (NSW)

Castlecomer - Judy     Rock, Pop 22/08/2016
Castlecomer are one of the hardest working bands in Australia. Constantly touring built the band a dedicated fan base and turned their live show into a tight, electric, impressive experience.
I wrote 'Judy' as a way to release a big work week listening to really dark evidence in court. The groove and the hook had been in my head for weeks but I just needed something to sing about, and that’s where the character of Judy helped.

Ben Wright Smith is back with a brand new single - ‘Sand Grabber’. To celebrate the release, he'll be touring to 35 regional and metro cities from July to October.
“Sand Grabber came from a jam with my buddy Nic. Whilst playing with synthesisers and 80's drums machines, I started playing the weird chords in the bridge. I've never written something so illogical or in such a backwards way but it sounded cool so I went with it.”

Alex The Astronaut - Holes In The Story     Folk, Electronic, Atmospheric 18/05/2016
Alex the Astronaut, who splits her time between Sydney & NYC, fell down the musical rabbit hole when she was gifted a drum kit at the age of three.
'Holes in the Story' - an upbeat and gleeful folktronica track that speaks volumes to Alex the Astronaut's optimistic and adventurous outlook. It's about people breaking the mould, with 'the bad guy' who smiles with his son, and a young couple who don't fit the fairytale image we're exposed to.

Miles de Carteret - Honey     Electronic, Atmospheric, Downbeat, Rock 07/05/2016
Miles de Carteret is the Melbourne-based collaboration between singer/songwriter Miles de Carteret and producer/drummer Danny Barwick.
‘Honey’ is constructed on a bed of muted guitar playing, and fleshed with soft synthesiser pads, it's lulling and hypnotic. As Barwick says, ‘…we wanted to recreate the feeling of a diary entry, to try our best to connect directly with people and move them from place of honesty’.
