With a makeup from some of Sydney’s coolest bands (and an indelible part of the emerging Marrickville Sound), The Shrugs blast into our consciousness with their pop fuzz onslaught of ‘Shoebox’, which we are proud to premiere today ahead of its release tomorrow. Members of bands such as Imperial Broads, Belles Will Ring, Sister Jane, …

Horsegirl are cooler than anyone on the planet at this moment in time and their slew of singles, thus far released, place this statement in bold and highlighted. We’ve already salivated over the louch fuzz of ‘World of Pots and Pans’ and ‘Anti-glory’. Now, in anticipation of their debut album ‘Versions of Modern Performance’ (out …

Due to unfortunate connotations, the brilliant duo Moscow Apartment who released, in my opinion, one of the most outstanding albums of 2020, the EP ‘Better Daughter’ (reviewed by me here), have decided to change their name and reemerge as Housewife – a somewhat delicious irony given their strong feminist stance (they proudly call themselves ‘opinionated …

There is a raw organic groove to the new single ‘Morning Comes’ from nipaluna/Hobart born wunderkind Abe Parsons, performing under the name Caelo, that is energising and radiant. We feel very honoured to premiere this buoyant track ahead of its general release tomorrow. The acoustic crunch and ambulatory forward movement may remind one of the …

We are honoured to premiere the new video from NSW outfit The Good Love – a slinky, soul-inflected piece of solid gold. Glorious harmonies and epic choruses combine to create something quite anthemic.

There’s a delightful ambulatory flow to the track which eases along inside the brain like sliding down a slippery slide, emitting golden rays of joy. With a …

It’s hard to believe ‘Butterfly Blue’ (out through Dew Process) is Mallrat‘s debut album. She has graced us with two stunning EPs and a series of brilliant singles that have illustrated her perfect amalgam of feisty yet achingly beautiful tracks that seamlessly drift between pure pop, indie rock and rap (sometimes all within one song), …

Signed to BENEE’s record label Olive Records, There’s A Tuesday reveal an inherent sense of melody and melancholy in their new single ‘Girl At Night’ – a track full of charm and insouciance. This follows their earlier single ‘Baby Blue’ reviewed by me here. There is a message of unrequited love mixed in with the frustrations …

Revolution Above Disorder is the work of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, House of Dolls, The Subterranean Satellite Band, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver. His new single ‘Annihilator’ is a febrile, organic slab of brooding, atmospheric goth pop which prowls in the half light with a delicious intensity. The waves of …

Laura Mac‘s new single ‘Don’t Know What I’m Thinking’ is a effervescent blast of sonic goodness, with a hyper kinetic disco shuffle in a paean to bacchanalian excess. This Sunshine Coast band certainly knows how to bottle the sun’s rays and spray serotonin over the most light-deprived individual. The sound is all blistering pop and …
