You really can’t get much better than ‘Leaves Me Blind’, the 1992 magnum opus from the seminal Underground Lovers – their second album. Lead single ‘Your Eyes’ remains on my personal list of favourite songs ever with its hypnotic bass and dreamy ethereal fugue. The entire album positively shimmers and glows and has the collective …

Richard Andrew has a very important day job as the vital provider of beats to the legendary Underground Lovers, and has been moonlighting a solo project under his own name R.J. Andrew. Andrew has many strings to his bow, though – he is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and composer. This man of many talents has just …

The Same Same consist of two giants in the indie music scene in Australia: multi instrumentalists Philippa Nihill from the Underground Lovers/GB3 and Lisa Gibbs from USER/GB3, and their weapons of choice are keys, synths and vocals wielded with haunting finesse and subtlety. The Same Same have just announced the release of an album of …

Spanning their entire thirty career, the new collection of remixes from the legendary Underground Lovers is utterly sublime. It goes without saying that the flesh of a remix is only as good as the bones it is built on, and with the Underground Lovers you are assured that the foundations are phenominal. Many of the …

The inimitable Underground Lovers have released an absolutely delightful video for the gorgeous track ‘Feels Like Yesterday’ opening their last album ‘A Left Turn’ (my joint favourite album of 2019). Made up of vignettes from various black and white movies (European in origin, I surmise) and edited by Cristina Álvarez López & Adrian Martin , …

The following are lists of my favourite releases of 2019. This is not a definitive list of the best of 2019: I would not be so presumptuous to think I have listened to every single release nor the objective ability to state what is best. This is essentially stuff I have listed to and liked …
