I'm back baby! Did anyone miss me? Probably not. It's back to sharing whats good for ya soul. Aussie artist Tom Crandles aka Au.ra is back with a new solo project called Prudence. 'Major Tom' is the EP and opening tracks 'Smile & Nod', 'Euphoria' and 'The Sound Of Your Voice' are my personal stand out tracks. What I love about 'Major Tom' is the how easily it transitions from light to dark, from hypnotic bass lines to ethereal guitar hooks. It's a little gloomy post punk, it's a little 80's synth pop. It's a little shoe-gazy psych and it's a whole lotta addictive. 'Major Tom' is out now on Forged Artifacts, and you can get it from the Prudence Bandcamp page.

Essendon 1986 is the year it all went down. Some say it was the year that no Victorian man could forget. For it was the 90th season of the elite Australian rules football competition. That night tempers rose to boiling point and one team was sent packing! 32 years later, this event become the inspiration for one dark and majestic track. Or it could be all hearsay. Introducing Melbourne outfit East Brunswick All Girls Choir. 'Essendon 1986' will be found on their second album 'Teddywaddy' is out Friday 29th June on Milk! Records.

A slice of psychedelic pop from Raindrop (solo project of Miles Devine ex Regular John guitarist). “Another World” also comes with this wonderfully kooky video. Love the Australian coastal vibes.

One of my favourite Aussie bands Lowtide are releasing their new album 'Southern Mind' next Friday the 16th of February. I've had the pleasure of listening to it and I have to say it's a captivating record. Songs are emersed in blissful textures, reverb-drenched guitars and ethereal vocals. 'Elizabeth Tower' is the second single from the LP. You can preorder the special limited edition green vinyl (which includes a digital download) of 'Southern Mind' here. And catch them on tour in in a city near you 🤘🏻
