Lowtide - Alibi

Transfixed, transported, delighted. Take a break and spend the next 4 minutes mesmerised with the new single 'Alibi' from Melbourne 4 piece Lowtide. Sweet lulls & relaxation guaranteed.*

Sloan Peterson - Rats

I remember when this lass used to play in a lofi garage outfit called Black Zeros. Those were the days. DIY 4 LYF. Fast track a couple of years and Joe Jackson plays under the moniker, Sloan Peterson. Really Joe? Sloan Peterson. What's wrong with Joe Jackson!? Anyway, enough about the name, more about the music. 'Rats' is her first single to be released from her debut EP. It's pop, it's rock, it's a little garage and it's got soul. Admit it. It's catchy. Catchy as hell.

Noire - Real Cool

Are you awake? are you dreaming? maybe you're having some kind of lucid dream where you feel you're in control. Wait! Who is that? Is that Leonardo DiCaprio behind a cloud reaching out for you to take his hand? Maybe or maybe you're hallucinating. What you're really seeing is your neighbor behind the recycling bin, holding your mail. What a trip. Best to stay cool kids. Real Cool...

I can only image how dismal it must have been for BUS VIPERS, a.k.a Daniel Ahern, spending 3 years studying in Australia's capital toilet Canberra. Thank god the multi-instrumentalist returned to Sydney and recorded some tunes! His first single ‘CSIRO Weeds’ is rapturous. The melodies just divine. And the clip! Oh boy. Bravo, bravo. I can wait to hear the rest of his debut EP 'Federal Highway' when it's released this July through Future Classic.

Hype Machine - It's Time to Give Back!

4 years ago no one knew who SPK was. We were and still are a tiny music blog. About a year later, the good folks at Hype Machine added us to their directory.(I personally was over the moon!) Hype Machine was a place to go and find cool music and cool blogs. Having SPK part of their network validated what we were doing and made us continue sharing music. We became part of something bigger. Something special. Like most of us, music is a passion. Not a job. It's a matter of trust! and it's time to give back!
