Listen: #1 Dads – ‘So Soldier’ (feat. Ainslie Wills)

Tom Iansek, well known for making up half of Melbourne outfit Big Scary, has been working on his solo project #1 Dads (formerly know as Dads) for quite sometime. 2011′s Man Of Leisure was a sensational LP, maybe it didn’t garner the attention it truly deserved, but I am starting to wander. What we’re really here about is Iansek’s...
Listen: Seekae - 'Test & Recognise' (Flume Re-work)

Listen: Seekae – ‘Test & Recognise’ (Flume Re-work)

  General world dominator, Flume, tried his luck re-workin’ Seekae’s latest track, ‘Test & Recognise’. No surprises here, the man does it justice. A little more stripped back, with a building sense throughout his re-work that resists boiling over into mayhem. It’s all class. ‘Test & Recognise’ is from Seekae’s forthcoming third reccord, The Worry. “Two years...

Watch: Eleventeen Eston - 'Two Stroke Vertical Climb'

Watch: Eleventeen Eston – ‘Two Stroke Vertical Climb’

  Back in 2012, New Weird Australia released an eclectic compilation featuring the lesser known talent from Western Australaia, Western Schism. Eleventeen Eston featured on the collection, with his track ‘It’s All Again’, which instilled visual images of a 1980′s Law and Order cast getting down to the closing credits. It’s been a few years...
Listen: LOWER SPECTRUM - 'Khlever'

Listen: LOWER SPECTRUM – ‘Khlever’

I’ve forever been captivated by Ned Beckley‘s unique sound. The more unusual thing is, I feel like I’ve followed him around a lot. Although a bit older than me, we both grew up in the same small country town. I remember listening to some of his earliest work, at the time, he was focusing on...
Listen: LUCIANBLOMKAMP – 'Help Me Out'

Listen: LUCIANBLOMKAMP – ‘Help Me Out’

  It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard new work from LUCIANBLOMKAMP. Last year he released his self-titled EP, gaining him a swathe of well-deserved attention (maybe not enough). The 20 year-old from Melbourne producer has been tucked away for good reason, his full length record Post-Nature, will be out August 15 via Yes...
Listen: Ara Koufax - 'Converge'

Listen: Ara Koufax – ‘Converge’

The boys behind Naysayer & Gilsun, Sam Gill and Luke Neher, have been branching out of late. Not only are they maintaining their individual endeavors (Gill’s solo project Tooms), they’ve opened the door on a whole new project, together. Under the cloak of Ara Koufax the duo so well known for their audio-visual onslaughts have created...
Listen: The Galaxy Folk - 'Handful'

Listen: The Galaxy Folk – ‘Handful’

  Traveling home on the Calder last week, I was listening Local and/or General with Jason Moore, and this track came across the waves. Great program, I get a heap of leads from the show, but ‘Handful’ was especially spellbinding. Angus Bell, a Melbourne’s resident, creates lo-fi jams that nod to a whole range of different...
Interview: SASKWATCH

Interview: SASKWATCH

Local soul legends Saskwatch have just kicked off another mammoth tour in support of their cracking new record Nose Dive. The first show in Castlemaine last Friday was so impressive that my Dad sent his first ever snapchat! We caught up with Liam about their touring experiences and how important it has been to Saskwatch’s already impressive...

Listen: Invisible Prism – ‘Innermost Outerspace’ EP

“Waves will soon form; let the current take you deeper. Follow the sines to the symbols. That portal is closer than you think. Remember that you are everywhere.
