LA-based musos Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton are Electric Guest. Leveraging Danger Mouse‘s amazing production skills, they’ve been prepping their debut self-titled LP. Take a listen to the below two tracks taken from the forthcoming LP – ‘Troubleman’ and ‘American Daydream’. They offer up an upbeat, poppy sound that is just so easy to get lost in. This […]

FAMY, formerly known as Family, is made up of three English-men and an Italian who grew up together in the south of France. The boys have been kicking around for a while now, uploading a string of demos here and there to Bandcamp. They’ve now released Dogg Dogg – a debut 12″ EP strongly driven by […]

First Nature are a New York band that, in their own words, “are poppy and kind of sound like what would happen if Tom Petty and Arthur Russell formed an arty bar band together.” Soon, the band will unleash their self-titled debut record which took members Keith Malone and Matt Walsh (of the Desert Fathers and […]

Berlin based electro-glitch production duo Modeselektor released Monkeytown last month – their latest and third studio LP.

Get it out and get it up ya.

In approximately two weeks, one of our favourite monthly mixtape producers The Magician will be visiting our shores for a whirlwind tour. Excited? Stupid question. Take a look at this little promo video he threw together featuring latest single ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’ [ft. Jeppe]: [yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6E5l5v_OTg’] The tour kicks off in Canberra and […]

Gold Coast locals, Tijuana Cartel released LP two M1 late September which included stellar singles ‘White Dove’ and ‘Letting It Go’.

Take a listen to their latest single, ‘Never Grow Old’: Mobile users, click here to listen. […]

The annual Sydney Festival has returned, offering up a suite of goodness that pretty much anyone and everyone will fancy.
