the marrickville sound


With a euphoric use of horns and a jingle jangle pop swing, we are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Jaisalmer’ from Brisbane outfil The Valery Trails. Recalling the anthemic glory of fellow Brisbanites The Saints in their later, more melodic life, the track is dynamic and pulse quickening with a cool indie swagger and …

We are honoured to be able to bring you the premiere of the single ‘Seaweed’ from Richard In Your Mind member Richard Cartwright, out through  Broken Stone Records/Remote Control Records.

We are very proud to premiere the new video by Sydney band The Shrugs for their poptastic fuzz blast of ‘Shoebox’.

After a darker turn with last year’s ‘Evil Worm’, Marley is back to his ebullient self with a dappling rich luscious …

Last year’s EP ‘Autocalm’ (reviewed by me here) was a brilliant introduction to the youthful exuberance of The Nagging Doubts, a band who have drawn on the rawness and street-wise veracity of The Velvet Underground and enriched it with a visceral antipodean sound. They are back with a new single ‘Dirty Scene’ and it is …

We premiered the jangling pop perfection of Sydney crooner Lewis Goldmark‘s track ‘Wild Night’ back in November last year, and we are very pleased to unveil for you the new video for the track. Good things come for those who wait. The track ‘Wild Night’ is a jangling delight with a shimmer and shine that …

We are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Arise’ from Sydney group Winter Starlings. ‘Arise’ has a warm veracity with raw and visceral guitars that jangle into the stratosphere, replete with yearning vocals and delicate harmonies. There is a subtle folk/americana in the delivery, a Byrdsian jingle jangle with a Teenage Fanclub pop spine. However, …
