fantastic folk from melbourne. can’t get enough of this ep. pretty sure she plays in immigrant union too unless that’s someone that looks eerily similar. go buy her EP here Canned Tomatoes (whole) by courtney barnett [MP3] Courtney Barnett – Lance Jr. [MP3] Courtney Barnett – Scotty Says
so tom left little red and started crooning over smooth grooves. liking this a lot more than that second little red album. [MP3] Major Tom and The Atoms - The House That Love Built [MP3] Major Tom and The Atoms - Mockingbird
written with the guys from miike snow, this is some of the best pop music floating around. out through new swedish label INGRID, which has so much great stuff out right now.
really ace surf fuzz out of melbourne. supported sonny and the sunsets / kurt vile. this is off a new 7” recorded at the tote by mikey from eddy current/total control. plus the slightly older but equally great ‘vanilla yoghurt’ Medicine by Chook Race Pop Song by Chook Race Playground by Chook Race [MP3] Chook Race - Vanilla Yoghurt
great single from one of my favourite melbourne bands. their fourth album just came out on Chapter and is highly recommended, so buy it.
Lower Plenty are one of those bands that once you hear will become an instant favourite. Featuring members from Dick Diver, Deaf Wish, and UV Race. This is one of the best Australian albums this year, love their bliss hiss so much. Nullarbor by Lower Plenty White Walls by Lower Plenty
with super smooth synth lines and heartbreaking vocals, dante is one of the most exciting swedish artists at the moment. also drums for the concretes.
album is finally out! its pop perfection, so go buy it. my dad pre-ordered it, but its better than that might suggest.
love the laurels so much. defo my favourite sydney band at the moment. download this right now and get lost in their haze of shoegaze! really wish they were the support on the shows mark gardener from ride is doing. [MP3] The Laurels – Tidal Wave
one of our most popular posts this year was a demo from badlands. now their ‘battles within’ ep has dropped and its brilliant. swirling vocals, shuffling beats and smooth bass hooks We Want More by Badlands A New Day by Badlands Purest Heart by Badlands
used to be zsa zsa. features Nisa Venerosa (Fabulous Diamonds) & Karl Scullin (Kes Band) & Ela Stiles (Songs). hypnotic, droning spacey jams. Seventeen Once by Bushwalking Hair by Bushwalking First Time by Bushwalking
kirin j callinan is a guitar god with guile style. first new track in ages and it’s better than anything your mind can even conceive.
weird pop from denmark. catchy, sparse and very very good. [MP3] Rangleklods – Clouds (Lawaetz Remix) [MP3] Rangleklods – Clouds (Troels Abrahamsen Remix)
I know how much my posts on experimental pop music irritate people. so here is another. this rnb groove from alunageorge was stuck in my head for weeeeks last year. but just stumbled on this great slowed down remix from raffertie.
the internet is all over this awesome track from goldroom, featuring chela. but her solo material is equally great. sweet vocals over bouncy beats. Full Moon by Chela [MP3] Chela - Plastic Gun
New track from Johan Hedberg of Suburban Kids with Biblical Names! So good! How can anyone not instantly love this. [MP3] Johan Hedberg - Vårdbiträdesblues [MP3] Johan Hedberg - Vårdbiträdesblues (Epikernas 1 maj remix)
new ep exotica came out a while back from our sydney favs No Art. as you’d expect it frigging awesome – so go buy it here now. if you need more head back to our post from this time last year.
