The Crooked Fiddle Band - Counter Errorism     World, Punk, Folk, Rock 13/08/2019
The Crooked Fiddle Band: possibly the world's only 'chainsaw folk' band, taking elements of traditional folk, post-rock and punk to create a mix praised by everyone from Eno to Albini.
Counter Errorism serves an overture to The Crooked Fiddle Band's new climate-change-based album, Another Subtle Atom Bomb. It features a host of the sounds that define the album, including a double bass recording through a rattling snare drum, Jess Randall's violin scratches and shimmering 'slackbow' technique. Mostly instrumental, the only lyrics are 'though tides are rising/thoughts bide while sirens sing.'

Yellow Monday - Worldbeat meets Indie/Folk. Interesting Grooves. Eastern ~ Gypsy ~ Progressive ~ Singer/Songwriter ~ and more
Workers picking tealeaves disappear down to the valley floor as the northern horizon fills with a giant creamy cloud. Gazing through this vast hazy valley from Darjeeling to the north, I slowly become aware that I'm not looking at a cloud at all but the massive mountain known as Kanchendzonga.

Dr Effector - Starman (feat. Ben Scarf)     World, Retro, Cover Version, Dance 27/07/2019
Dr Effector is a Sydney based musican/producer
Rejoice at the death and cry at the birth - Starman is a celebratory homage to the life and music of the David Bowie. The end of the song always reminded me of a samba style melody so I went one step further and "calypsised" [sic] it.

Hashshashin - Crossing The Panj     World, Instrumental, Classical 23/07/2019
A ragged and cathartic mix of Middle Eastern psychedelia, progressive rock and transcendental drone.
With an instrumental arsenal at their fingertips and a newfound mastery for crafting lush, atmospheric soundscapes, the sum of Badakhshan’s many elements is somewhat of an adventure for both old fans and new. These compositions almost command listeners into a place where trancelike rhythm and contemplative introspection are impossible to ignore.

VanderAa - Higher     World, Dance, Pop, Roots 18/07/2019
Australian brothers, VanderAa are producers, multi-instrumentalists, live performers and environmentalists who translate organic sounds of drums, djembe, beatboxing, didgeridoo, guitar, and vocals.
During VanderAa’s time in Melbourne in 2017/2018, a creative burst of inspiration birthed this song. It was through a deep meditation where Aaron was confronted with the powerful lyrics and the song transformed from his vision to their instruments. Together, brothers Aaron and Levi worked on the layers and differing elements that have made “Higher” the track it is today.
