A few days ago, acid stag’s Jacqui Wonder spoke with Gab Winterfield of Sydney psych-pop revivalists Jagwar Ma. If you plan on seeing the duo at their forthcoming Sydney show, then you won’t want to miss the after-party!

Maya Jane Coles has kicked some massive goals over the past three years, remixing acts like Massive Attack, The xx and the Gorrillaz, recording a ‘BBC Essential Mix,’ winning a swag of house and DJ awards and now releasing her debut album, Comfort.

Re-listening to Strange Talk’s back-catalogue as I write this review, I wish I had a DeLorean DMC-12 to take me back to the electric gig the Melbourne boys played at the Beach Road Hotel last week.

Life’s thrown a lot at Lawrence Greenwood AKA Whitley in the past four years and from the sounds of the more mature and darker ‘Even the Stars are a Mess,’ he’s thrown it all into this album.

I was so ready to pass on Empire of the Sun’s ‘Ice on the Dune,’ but after a theatrical intro, just a few bars into track 2 ‘DNA’ I was hooked.

‘Surge’ EP from Cosmo’s Midnight will leave you on another planet, one carefully constructed from gorgeous melodies, and the precision and skill of two very talented twins.

If you were lucky enough to see Disclosure in one of their Australian appearances this summer, you need no sell on debut album ‘Settle.’
