There’s a rumour that Western Australia churns out these talented bands in factories, and they certainly don’t believe in overproduction. Off the back of last year’s sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’, the dynamically adroit surf rock trio Pretty Uglys have kicked off the new year with their latest offering, ‘Situation City’. The track’s relaxed pulse is …

As the band celebrate their thirtieth year, the release showcases collected works throughout their magnificent history. Tracks are in chronological order and split into 4 sections/2 halves …

In my humble opinion, Johnny Hunter, now signed to Cooking Vinyl Australia, are one of the most exciting bands in Australia at the moment – one we have been following for a while at Backseat Mafia with intense interest and satisfaction as they go from strength to strength.

And yet for all the misery, there was the permanency of music, bursting forth like shoots of greenery in a sea of ash. Sydney’s Infinity Broke‘s album ‘Your Dream Our Jail’ was one …

Christopher Coleman & The Great Escape provided an eloquent and moving finale to 2021 with the expansive and beautiful single ‘Paloona’ (reviewed here), and we are absolutely delighted to be able to provide an exclusive look at the video for the follow up single ‘Amelia’.

The magnificent Fontaines D.C. have announced their third album, ‘Skinty Fia’, to be released on 22 April 2022 on Partisan Records. After the double pleasures of ‘Doggerel’ and ‘A Hero’s Death’ released within one year of each other back in 2020, 2021 was a relatively quiet period for the Dublin band in terms of releases. …

Influenced by the like of Radiohead and Portishead, it is rather incredible that at the time …
