There is a delicious expansiveness about Damien Binder‘s work – he is an uniquely antipodean troubadour whose songs sparkle like the bright stars over the great southern land. Originally from New Zealand, Binder now lives in Perth and he has somehow combined elements of the spark of creativity from both places into an impressive body …

Australian five-piece Mt. Mountain released their fourth LP last week, Centre, via London’s Fuzz Club Records. Hailing from Perth they delve into sprawling, motorik psychedelic rock sound that journeys between tranquil, drone-like meditations and raucous, full-throttle wig-outs that’ll blow your mind as much as your speakers. Taking cues from Krautrock pioneers like Neu! and Can …

We are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Here It Is’ from New Zealand-born Western Australian resident Damien Binder which is out on Friday, 5 February 2021. Binder began his musical life in nineties NZ band Second Child before moving west to Australia – Perth to be precise – and releasing, to date, four solo …

Aborted Tortoise hail from Perth, Australia and are set to release a brand EP out into the world of Punk music. It’s a world that is never a lonely place, a place that is filled with so much diversity, but also a place so many bands can get lost in – trying to fit in rather …

Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets new album, And Now For The Whatchamacallit, puts them on a pedestal with their fellow countrymen King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard (I figured I wouldn’t get through the review without mentioning them, so let’s get it out there early) shining a light on antipodean psych music through, as well as …

Bridging the gap between Perth (Australia) and New York (USA) is no mean feat, but due to the wonders of modern recording technology it has been artfully done by duo Scratch. They have just released two songs that have been written and recorded across the great divide. ‘Soak’ – the standout track – manages to …

Western Australian band, Verge Collection‘s new single, ‘Feelin’ Old’ has an instantly engaging indie rock jangle that takes residence in your head like a virus. A very enjoyable one. There is a quintessentially Australian larrikinism about the laconic vocals which provides the song with its unique sound, but the delivery mechanism is from the stable …

In Australia, between the places where the Swan River meets the suburbs and sandy beaches meet the shoreline, lays Perth. A cultural centre and the sweeping city that is the capital of Western Australia. Perth is not only home to the state ballet, opera companies, theatre, art galleries and museums. It is also home to …

There’s a fresh blast of warm wind coming in from the west coast of Australia to melt the polar ice caps forming around Sydney Harbour (still recovering from the recent lightning visit of Backseat Mafia’s esteemed editor-in-chief). It’s name is The High Learys, and never has there been a more beautiful sound to leaven the …

Backseat Mafia were recently impressed by the debut single, New York Era, from Perth’s Peyton. So impressed that we fired a few questions to singer/songwriter Peyton Sears to find out more: Where does the name Peyton come from? My full name is Peyton Sears. I was originally considering going under another name but I just thought Peyton …
