Nobody was expecting this switch up from YNG Martyr. It's like he's done a four lane change on the highway. I'm buckling in for the ride with this dude, he's going somewhere.

smol fish continue their exquisite run of form that's quickly positioned them on our radar in under 12 months time. It's wilting indie with piercing observations. I'm grabbing a whole slab of their slice of life songwriting.

Allow TV Dreams to do a cartwheel into your life with this fast bit of happy/sad garage. Except they don't stick the landing, tumbling semi-buzzed into your living room and breaking shit. Chaotic fun.

Full on energy from SOAP. The track could sound at home in the OG grunge era but then they throw in some Arctic Monkeys riffdom.

Wild! The buzzing electronics are going off in my ears like a chemical reaction. Hectic, fantastic - I'm so hyped off this.

Ian Munro you just blew my mind. Quiet inside emotion meets loud external mayhem like it's an attempt at electronic blood letting.

I can hear that Juanita's still polishing her sound but there's so much promise here! She tries out some great ideas here and her voice is so good - and I mean the literal voice and the figurative...the WAY she approaches this writing this track. On my radar.

This is a very charming and idiosyncratic pop track from Thomas Porter - who's been working behind the scenes with a lot of my fave locals lately (like Yb., Lucy Sugerman). He's putting the (locked down in your) bedroom in bedroom pop.

Clean blue eyed soul. It's got the loved up sweetness and clear-skies delivery of '70s smooth faves.

Stunting vibe but beneath that shiny surface NLN get mad deep with some raw thoughts. Hope that getting these demons out on the track has been a cathartic experience.

Best one yet from A Swift Farewell! They've got massive ambitions if the size of this track is anything to go by. Soaring melodic punk with plenty of spice in the mix.

Kate aka FFMB is a genuine studio savant, tinkering away indoors to get every tone and detail to her liking. But! As we can hear right here she's no wallflower, easily serving up a lashing of dirt-stained death-staring rock.

You two copped a lot of love on the textline for Stranded and I imagine the same outcome for this bright, anthemic follow up! Solid bop!
