I’ve recently been turned on by this track from another Australian great psyche band; SONS OF ZÖKU’s new EP Can Dead DanceSONS OF ZÖKU’s latest offering Can Dead Dance is full of fuzzy, bright, old-school garage, with no shortage of good times to be found within.

Based out of Adelaide,  SONS OF ZÖKU are made up of Ricardo Da Silva, Ica Quintela, Jordan Buck, and Jacob Otto, who together jump through gloriously fuzzed out, psychedelic-tinged, garage rock. Over the course of the five tracks, the band somehow create a perfect balance between frenzied chaos . On Mauvause Foi, the four-piece belt through bright, jangly guitar chords and incredibly infectious, lo-fi vocal hooks to deliver a truly memorable surfy alt-garage-pop tune.

Yet on Big Rich Man or Wild Eyes they’re hitting more of a saunter; a lackadaisical take on psych that will whisk you off to somewhere you’d rather be. Unsurprisingly, all tracks on the EP were recorded in one day. This comes through in the EP’s charming sense of urgency.

Hailing from Adelaide, Mane’s indie pop and distinct blues leaning vocals has been described as ‘skillful blends of pop & blues influences with smoky vocal stylings’. Catching the attention of audiences across Australia playing alongside respected national artists BOO SEEKA, E^ST, Ali Barter and KLP, Mane continues to grow her sound and artistry. With new music on the horizon you can see the pay off from constant touring and festival bills including Nannup and WOMADelaide early 2017 as this exceptional talent comes into her own.

Leading single ‘Bitter’ off MANE’s Upcoming EP ‘House Of Horrors’

Adelaide-based goth pop newcomer Mane, aka Paige Renee Court, has quickly developed a sound most artists spend a career trying to perfect. The singer builds immersive soundscapes with her haunting and distinctive vocals, which weave through dark electronic sounds; a captivating force channelled into new single What If The Love Dies. Having supported the likes of Ali Barter, City Calm Down and The Temper Trap in recent months, alongside a European/UK tour, we don’t think there’s any risk of the buzz fading anytime soon. With new music just around the corner, you can expect a stack more touring from Mane in 2018.

Like the movement of the rocks in the astronomical body for which they are named, The Asteroid Belt’s improvised instrumental jams feel simultaneously unpredictable and well-choreographed. These Adelaide-based space cadets know how to lock into a solid heavy psych groove similar to Earthless and Hawkwind. After playing together for a decade, they work their effects pedals like seasoned road warriors. Their first LP in five years, Do Whats Right, makes it hard to go wrong. It’s fun to disappear in smoke under their guidance.

We’re a five piece band from south of AdelaideZen Panda; among Adelaide folk these guys attract a certain warmth and smile when spoken about. Quite simply the quality of their live shows, and handful of previously released singles, makes people happy, and their debut self-titled EP is no different. The 7 track release is filled with floaty guitars and catchy vocals, finally we now have a solid chunk of music to sink our teeth into. The EP has been doing the rounds on local radio and all our headphones .

This millennial generation have become rather proficient at documenting life. Music’s ability to capture, share, and canonise the human experience . January 28th signals both the completion and commencement of chapters for Brae McKee. The creator/curator behind the band Bjéar, thier debut self-titled record from the Adelaide group is an extension of his journey thus far. Like a documentary of the transition from youth to adulthood, the record is a collection of emotions and experiences – art, travel, film, joy, nostalgia, heartbreak. The music is consciously diverse, honest, woven together with stories and parables. 

Bjéar’s debut project – self-recorded and produced entirely within the confines of McKee’s home studio – is a prime example of the changing nature of music. With no meddling from industry suits, the product remains raw; as intended. It all works together to heighten the intimacy and transparency between musician and consumer. That proximity and relationship has never been more accessible than now. It is in this spirit – one of mixed vulnerability and strength .

After almost 12 months of partial hibernation Battlehounds are finally releasing their debut EP Damn Demons.

Recorded again with John McNichol at Twin Earth studios in Adelaide, the EP was mixed by good friend Ali Wells at Grinch Door Records (Bad//Dreems, West Thebarton Brothel Party) with the final touches added by Joseph Carra (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Peep Tempel, Bloc Party).
The five track EP is lead by single Night Crawl, a three and a bit minute, hook riddled, driving rock and roll juggernaut that lyrically recalls bad decisions and questionable company.

Uncompromising from start to finish and surrounded in grimy guitars, gristle and beer soaked vocals – Damn Demons is what will be hopefully the first in a long list of extended releases from Battlehounds, and one that looks to cement the band as one of the great up and coming Australian guitar acts.

‘Call For My Heart’ is the first single of young Adelaide band SKIES’ debut EP, a 4 minute drum-driven affair coated in vocalist Dusty Stephensen’s intensely captivating falsetto. These Adelaide natives ‘SKIES‘ are an electronic indie trio composed of Dusty Stephensen, Micah Cearns and Michael Zabolocki.

‘Hiding To Nothing’ is the new single from Adelaide four piece, BAD//DREEMS. Their highly anticipated debut album Dogs At Bay is out 21st August via Ivy League Records, If Dogs At Bay had been released during the period that Bad//Dreems are emulating, then it would’ve been one of Au-Go-Go’s most prized possessions. As it happens, Dogs At Bay came out in 2015, and introduced a whole new generation of kids to the glory of pub rock. Beer-soaked riffs, a howl that reaches all the way to the loner coughing up their life savings at the pokies, and a wide swathe of material that nodded to folks like GOD, Coloured Balls, The Go-Betweens and The Angels, Bad//Dreems pounded the listener with an affecting album of impressive rock.

Adelaide band Babes Are Wolves have hit the ground running with their debut single “Wait”, taken from their forthcoming EP “You Only Live Twice”. The punchy package of garage grunge shows off a big sound that could easily have them filling venues in the near future. Layers of guitar shredding lifted by a banging rhythmic drum pattern and lead vocalist Anna Bouras‘ strong performance; “Wait” is definitely something you want to hear.

“Wait” by BABES ARE WOLVES will be released 2nd of October 2015
