Xylouris White - Motorcycle Kondilies     World, Folk 27/04/2018
A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White, the ruggedly visionary duo formed of Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White (The Dirty Three).
“Motorcycle Kondilies” is muscular and epic, White’s rimshots providing on-alert accompaniment as Xylouris’s reaching vocal and dancing lute lines build in intensity.

Charlotte Roberts - Stay In Your Power     World, Experimental, Hip Hop 17/04/2018
An ever evolving creatrix, sound weaver, musician and explorer of the spirit of play, Charlotte Roberts has been described as the love child of the Mad Hatter and Alice.
A poetic slam of vocal gymnastics, ‘Stay In Your Power’ is a mantra about femininity and power, the gift of life and the strength of family bonds. Tapping into hip-hop, soul and pop while simultaneously rebelling against them all, it's an experimental layering of vocal loops and beat box hooks.

Hidden Sky - Alone In This Feeling     World, Ambience, Atmospheric 16/03/2018
Hidden Sky is the ambient project of Carlin McLellan, a Newcastle-based composer, poet, and music therapist.
A slowly meandering piece which drifts along serenely. Written during a summer of endless sunlight in Finland, this song reflects the stillness of the landscape and the immensity of quietude which can be accessed through nature.

Emerging from Brisbane’s contemporary music scene is the ambrosial vocal talents of Zannah debuting with an explosive and intense number that incorporates high-powered drums, distorted guitar, and a huge string-section.
