‘The Last Exit’ from UK duo Still Corners, released earlier this year (reviewed by me here), was a magnificent and evocative collection of glittering and sparkling songs filled with magic and mystery. Still Corners are back with a new single – ‘Heavy Days’ – and an announcement of a comprehensive tour of the EU and …

One of the most exciting and dynamic bands in the antipodean region, in my humble opinion, Johnny Hunter, is back with another exciting release ‘Life’. This follows the July release of ‘The Floor’ (reviewed by me here) and last year’s EP ‘Early Trauma’ (reviewed here). ‘Life’ is infused with the same vitality and theatricality we …

We are honoured to premiere the sonically arresting track ‘A Savage Goo’ from Dublin’s Let’s Set Sail: an enigmatic folk-infusion set on a bedrock of gurgling electronica and haunting vocals. Singer Warren McCarthy’s voice opens the track: naked and raw, a worn, whiskey-soaked gravelly tone infused with the heartache of generations. This is beautifully counterpointed …

Sydney’s Jack Nolan has a new single out, ‘Gabriel’, which is an atmospheric slice of what is called American, (amusingly translated to the Australian milieu as Darlinghurst Country – inner city urban country). An evocative piece of storytelling is delivered in a multilayered parcel that jangles and sparkles with an organic feel. Nolan’s vocals and …

Fresh from the release of his astounding album ‘DISTORDER’ (reviewed by me here), Sydney’s Darren Cross has just released a single and video for the track ‘Rabbit Hole (Polka Dot)’ from the album. This track is a soothing break from the often bleak and abrasive nature of the album – it represents Cross the folk …

Building up to the release of her album ‘IRIS’ through Flying Nun Records on 1 October 2021, Reb Fountain has just released the achingly beautiful track ‘Foxbright’, the fourth single from the album. This is a more reflective and restrained Fountain, but just as powerful and mesmerising. ‘Foxbright’ has a delicate, fragility and celestial melodies …

There is an unsettling restless edge to the new single ‘Matters’ from Perth’s Methyl Ethel that is wrapped in the most danceable and funky faux fur cloak. With soaring, gliding vocals that evoke The Jackson 5 in the chorus and a hyperactive rhythm section and blistering synth that bubbles and squeaks, this is something very …

After catching our attention with their single ‘I Always Need a Break’ back in June (see our review here), Melbourne-based indie pop delights SILT are back with news of their forthcoming EP ‘Contact High’ due out on 1 October 2021 and the release of a new sparkling jewel for the collection, the reflective ballad ‘You …

Australian born, Paris-based artist Karen Vogt has blessed these pages in the past with her band, the magnificent Heligoland (see our interview and review of their last album ‘This Quiet Fire’ here). She has now announced a new collaboration with ambient experimental composer Pepo Galán which will see an album entitled ‘The Sweet Wait’ released November …

We are very proud to premiere the double sided single release from esteemed Sydney-based artist Pluto Jonze (Hey Geronimo). ‘Moonmaking’ and ‘Dot’ are two sides of the same sparkling coin: psychedelic-tinged melodic delights that literally float on a bed of harmonies and shimmering instrumentation. ‘Moonmaking’ is the more ethereal of the two: Jonze’s velvet melancholic …
