Introducing Melbourne outfit Mighty Boys and their single “Dapto Dreaming”. It's an ode to the most infamous racetrack in Australia, a space where many dreams have been had and few have been realized, Dapto Racetrack. It’s not a celebration, but a commiseration. It’s for doggies, the spilled beer on the sandy racetrack, the dizzying heights and earth shattering lows of the punter losing it all – bouncing back – then losing it all again.

You might remember a band back in 2014 called The Jones Rival. We covered their last single 'Uncle Frank' on SPK. After that release, they disappeared. We heard nothing. Zero. Zip. It's no surprise, bands come and go like flies on meat pies. So when we found out they recently reformed, we got excited. The story goes, some of the band took some downtime traveling through the US (for a good part of a year). After returning to our Aussie shores they formed a new group called Sun Sap. It's still hip shaking garage rock but now there is also an extra guitarist and keys to expand their sonic sound. 'Mexico' is their first single and they also released a video which you can view here. Catch them at VISIONS in Sydney next month.

Dr Kez sits back in his arm chair and looks vacantly out the starship's window. The ship's chief officer Sophie Treloar or as the crew like to call her 'POPPONGENE' stands at the head of the bridge anxiously awaiting confirmation from the ships captain. 'the vessel must be steering off course' she thinks to herself. 'Do It Girl' shouts Dr Kez. At that moment, Sophie charts a new course west and the ship drifts deeper into outer space.

Cyborg, I'm here to dance with you. Cyborg, don't be afraid. Cyborg, do you have any Remorse? 22 year old Melbourne musician Gregor has just joined the stellar roster at Chapter Music. Last week he released a collection of 14 inquisitive tracks. 'Remorse' is just one of the fantastically bazaar songs found on his debut Thoughts & Faults. Cyborg, you can download this one for free below.

No need for washboards and wah wah peddles here ladies and gentlemen. We have the classic rock n roll blues sound of Jesse Redwing . After his fiery first single 'Comin On', new single 'Crawlin' Up The Walls' is accompanied with a grainy DIY video. It's got all the rock moves, all the licks and that devil-may-care attitude from Redwing. It will be sure to make all the girls and boys pull some chicken-like Mick Jagger maneuvers at the single launches later this month.
