LOWER SPECTRUM - PROXIMA


Science lesson 101 - Proxima Centauri is a star about 4.2 light-years away from planet earth. So it's safe to say it's pretty f#$kin' far away. When I can across 'PROXIMA' by Ned Beckley aka LOWER SPECTRUM, I also felt about million light-years away. There is something mysteriously beautiful about Ned's production on this single. You'll find 'PROXIMA' on his forthcoming EP 'New Haze' (due for release early 2016 on Pilerats Records).

MEZKO - Journey's End


'Journey's End'? more like Journey beginning for the talented Sydney duo! :P I really dig what these girls do. MEZKO create futuristic sounds with analogue/digital synths, guitars, bass and weightlessly angelic vocals. With every release they seem to push sonic boundaries and create their own distinctive signature sound.

Donny Love - In The Baby's Eye's


#buttpop #sleaze #passionpop are some of the hash tags new psych band from Queensland Donny Love use to describe their new EP 'Sultry Visions'. The EP is jam packed with winners. Stand out track for me would have to be 'In The Baby's Eyes'. Mixing a good amount of Australiana swagger, driving 60's psych pop and some very sexy sexy trumpet. If you like what you hear, then download the EP here for FREE. Or better yet swing em a couple dollars, so they can put some petrol in the Combi and play a city close to you!

Guy Blackman - Camming 4 Each Other


One of my favourite indie labels Chapter Music (home to amazing Aussie bands Twerps, Dick Diver, Crayon Fields and more) is run by all round legend and nice guy Guy Blackman. The interesting thing you might not know is that Guy is also a talented musician. Last week he released this zany synth-pop number 'Camming 4 Each Other', featuring Crayon Fields' Geoffrey O'Connor on guitar and backing vocals. Sensual vibes. Also, If you're in Melbourne on the 6th of December check out guy pull some shapes when he plays live. Details here.
