Michael Fix - Waltzing With Matilda     Folk 26/02/2016
Over the past 25 years, Michael Fix has released thirteen albums, several DVD's, songbooks, singles and EPs, and has established himself as one of Australia's finest guitarists and composers.
To Michael, the challenge with such a famous song is to do something different and original. He always thought it odd that such a tragic lyric had such a happy melody; the solution; play the verse in a minor key, which gives the chorus an even greater lift.

Other tracks by Michael Fix:  Green Bushes  -  Ryebuck Shearer/Lachlan Tigers
Nigel Date (with Marcus Holden) - Bluey on the Brink     Folk 26/02/2016
A professional guitarist for over 30 years, Nigel Date, plays across the spectrum of music from alien space rock to old time swinging jazz. Multi-instrumentalist Marcus Holden accompanies him here.
An ancient little folk story set to a simple accompaniment. The melodies are beautiful but they’re short and repetitive, the story is what it’s about. The actual song ‘Bluey on the Brink’ is about a man on the brink, an oft-told tale in those days. Life was hard!

Other tracks by Nigel Date (with Marcus Holden):  Female Rambling Sailor

'Am I a Pony' is catchy tongue in cheek art pop featuring the French indie darling Melanie Pain. Downbeat electro cool with soaring string and accordion lines. Serge Gainsbourg meets Picasso’s french Dada.

Eric Bogle with John Munro - First The Children     Folk 02/09/2016
Eric Bogle is one of the best and most prolific songwriters of the last several decades. He is internationally known and respected having toured internationally for over 30 years.
Eric Bogle has drunk at this particular well a few times in his song writing career, and will probably visit it again, as the predilection of the human race to regularly slaughter each other in obscene wars shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

CODA - 7AM (feat. Royce Doherty)     Electronic, World, Pop 16/09/2016

Ngarukuruwala - Murli murli la     Indigenous, World, Jazz 08/12/2016
Since 2007, Ngarukuruwala (we sing songs), have shared musical ideas to create new versions of old Tiwi songs.
'Murli murli la' tells the story of a girl and a boy who are in love but can't be together. Murli la translates roughly as 'Let's go away together'. Like the old love songs, it's lighthearted entertainment with a deeper (unspoken) understanding of the complications of love and desire.

Cathie O'Sullivan - Song of Artesian Waters     Folk, Easy Listening 08/11/2017
Cathie O’Sullivan is a consummate performer and rare singer who takes the listener on a musical voyage with a voice charged with the ornamentation and beauty of Australia’s Celtic heritage.
The interpretation of folk song, including the marrying of new tunes to poetry, constantly changes. Here Cathie O’Sullivan sets music over the wonderful poem of noted wordsmith Banjo Patterson. Add to this heady brew her inspired music played on the brass-strung Celtic harp.

Other tracks by Cathie O'Sullivan:  Cameron Quartermain  -  Dark Pleasures
John Munro - The Land Belongs To Them (feat. John Schumann)     Folk 08/06/2018

Keith Branch & His South Sea Islanders - Malo Lelei     World, Easy Listening 07/12/2018
Although Branch’s musical legacy is brief, the recordings made under his name in 1947 are part of the overlooked catalogue of Hawaiian music made in Australia during the 78rpm era.
A Tongan Blessing… (Pronounced Mar-Low Lay-Lay-Ee) “That it may be well with thee”.

When you’re called away from the one that you love,
You’ll be safely guarded from harm
By Unseen Hands from above
And where e’er you roam, near or over the sea,
Know a heart’s repeating the prayer, “MALO LELEI”

Other tracks by Keith Branch & His South Sea Islanders:  Manu Rere (A Maori Love Song)  -  Pokarekare
Robyn Archer - Red City     Jazz, World 10/05/2019
Robyn Archer is a multi-award winning artist whose long career encompasses singing, writing, direction and public advocacy of the arts. Robyn is arguably the greatest cabaret artist in the country.
‘Red City’ is a chilling portrait of Paris at odds with today’s romantic cliché. Robyn Archer’s 'Classic Cabaret Rarities' LP is not comedy, not burlesque and definitely not lounge; but it is very funny, musically exquisite, and Archer’s voice is robust, tender and typically articulate as each song becomes a little drama all of its own.

Other tracks by Robyn Archer:  The Deep Sigh Of A Lady In A Troubled Night  -  Song Of The Rag And Bone Man
Spaceniks - Jawohl     Electronic / Beats / Industrial, Indie, Dance 04/12/2019
New electronic outfit from Wollongong, NSW, Australia
Jawohl is Spaceniks’ idea of what krautrock could sound like today if it had been cross-pollinated with indie rock. This is music for non-conformists: slightly twisted, fully sick.
