Their 2007 release Myth Takes rocketed them into stardom with tracks like ‘Must Be The Moon’, ‘Heart Of Hearts’ and of course the title track ‘Myth Takes’. On the back of this album they toured […]

After 4 years in the making, Melbourne boys Miami Horror are at last set to release their debut album Illumination.

In 2009 they released ‘Sometimes’ which quickly became […]

Back in November 2008, Minneapolis 4-piece Solid Gold released their amazingly addictive debut album Bodies of Water, which to our disappointment  didn’t receive much airplay here in Australia. The album was recorded on a budget of next to no money and they utilised any venue they could get their hands on such as city apartments, basements, cabins, and farms. In the bands own words; “Bodies […]

Ross Birchard, AKA Hudson Mohawke released his album Butter back in October 2009 but since hasn’t had much airplay here in Australia. Since becoming the youngest ever UK DMC finalist at the age of 15, Hudson Mohawke has been keeping himself well busy with a load of producing projects & collaborations. Butter we think can be best described as a […]

  2006 saw six 19-year-old North Carolinians release Be He Me, which in our mind was one of the best albums of that year. They followed up with Such Fun in 2008. This saw the band furthering their already expansive sound which some people found comparative to that of Arcade Fire. In early 2010, Annuals released Sweet Sister […]
