Weather’s brisk so here’s eight tunes to burn the chill. Shark Bar regulars Pist Idiots are tearing up triple j airwaves with latest single ‘Smile’ so we couldn’t be happier to have them here leading the charge. What’s more, we’ve collected a further six from ORB, Protomartyr, HTRK, the Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Drunk Mums and Moaning Lisa. Courtney Barnett’s ‘Nameless, Faceless’ isn't new as such but it's taken on special significance with the passing of Eurydice Dixon. Honouring her memory we’re adding back into the mix.
Can rock ‘n’ roll save our mortal souls? Not sure, but here’s eight righteous tunes that suggest there might just be a little hope. This week’s collection features sounds from The Babe Rainbow, Snail Mail, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Spiritualized, Deaf Wish, Stella Donnelly, Phantastic Ferniture and jazz legend John Coltrane himself.
Never before have we laid on such a heavy helping of psych! This week’s mother lode arrives courtesy of Halo Maud, Wooden Shjips, Goat and the Oh Sees. But equally important come four exceptional numbers from VOIID, Mezko, Sudan Archives and Ari Roar.
The merry month of May might be flying past, but you didn’t think we’d let slip without another round or two of the best and latest tunes, did you? Really? This week’s pet sounds come courtesy of Melody’s Echo Chamber, The Creation Factory, Chromatics, Snail Mail, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, IV League, Pure Milk, and Brisbane’s TRAILS.
In a world faced with the dark possibility that anything could change at any second – more often than not for the worse – the need for a good set of tunes has never been more imperative. Looking not to hype, sensation nor personality but simply the fact that a good song is a good song, we throw together eight each week as close to 52 weeks a year as we humanly can. So long soliloquy aside here is best and latest from Tropical Strength, Phantastic Ferniture, La Luz, Peach Fur, VOIID, Courtney Barnett and a melding of minds between Ty Segall and White Fence known as ‘Good Boy’.
Eight all-star sensational smash hits! This week's collection uncovers exciting sounds from Los Scallywaggs, Starcrawler, Lost Under Heaven, San Mei, Tracyanne and Danny, Beach House and The Goon Sax. Finally, and not least of all, come statements from Childish Gambino and Florence + The Machine too big to ignore.
Abba’s back, Kanye’s pro-Trump. We’re living in a time of few certainties, but one constant is that the good tunes keep rolling in. WAAX are firing off in full force this week with new single ‘Labrador’ and they’re finding themselves in good company amidst new numbers from Snail Mail, Gabriella Cohen, Lehmann B. Smith, Teens, levitation room, and Cullen Omori.
We could not have dreamt a better collection of releases than this week’s! Sequencing for our ‘New Releases’ Spotify playlist they fell together with uncanny ease, like some divine mixtape. And so, we present you, in full listening order, the best ‘n’ latest from Courtney Barnett, Body Type, Cut Worms, Iceage, Girl Ray, DMA’s, Father John Misty and Mazzy Star.
What a week! Splendour dropped, Coachella wrapped and Record Store Day continued to loom close. Topping it all off there's been music coming at us from all sides. We’ll lead off with a new tune from local favourites WHARVES but there’s several more coming courtesy of Rolling Blackouts Coast Fever, Lal Luz, RAAVE TAPES, Stonefield, Jenny Hval, Tropical F**k Storm and Cherry Glazerr.
