Really interesting and at times cinematic production work. The movement of the track is one of my favourite aspects, the rhythms work really nicely and the flow of the song from one section to another is great. Textures and sounds are well-selected and it stands well instrumentally although I do feel like it would be great with the right vocalist.

This song is so good on so many levels I don't know where to start. Wolf kills the game with a few short verses and comes through as the teen heart-throb we all wanted but no one deserved. Hell yeah

This is like some spillt the hair gel all over a glittery bass guitar. I love the warped funky lounge vibe and gosh golly those vocals! Who. Is He?

This is like a bottle of Fresh Good Vibes with the pulp left in. This is like driving up to an RBT and getting waved through without being tested. Gratis Minds and JK-47 like Vegemite & Buttered Toast. I'm getting up again to Up Again every morning from now on.

This is crazy- such a dope 90s vibe. Mix could use work- vocals are dope but a little unfocussed. Really enjoy the heavy/light switch up flow of the track. Playing is enjoyably loose and I really enjoy the chorus. Keen to hear more boiz

The way the groove builds on this track to really pull you in, mirroring the forward motion of the vocal, makes for a enjoyable journey from start to finish. Chet Faker tones at times in the vocal performance (which isn't a bad thing) but the combination of voice and production style is straight elkkle.

The detailed and expressive production on this track at times feels like it outshines the fairly straight forward vocal although by the same point the vocal provides an earthy grounding to elkkle's soaring composition. Hugely impressive nonetheless.

From the first offbeat breaks to the phase-of-the-moon shift in tempos this track is pure bliss. Madeleine Powers (more like Power-house am i rite?) is the dream tour-guide of this moon-lit joyride, coming through with soul-diva leads and rock solid backing vocal stacks alike.

So who can I give my damn money to to get a taste of this live???

Only just heard Mouseatouille (Which ranks in the top ten of band names that make you guy "huh" in a sort of low energy "heh") but im already a big fan. Powerful, melodic songwriting deep soaked in a bath of influences that to me sound like The Microphones, Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith and many more late 90s/2000s Lo-Fi acts.

More smooth vibes from the BNE duo- really interesting combination of live band vibes- some dub and dance hall rythms- with hiphop elements and great sung vocals. Really enjoy these tracks and looking forward to more.

I often feel it takes a much more mature and confident artist to speak softly rather than yell and demand your attention. Kid Heron lands ornaments like a paper aeroplane, floating along with light guitars and cymbal splashes as Ornaments for his dulcet vocals.

Will smart and smooth guitar pop ever get old? well objectively yes of course we are all but energy in a constant state of entrophy and distrophy. But in a subjective sense I always enjoy a song as light, groovy and fun as this.

A new favourite from May Lyn who has to be one of the most engaging and unique voices in Australia's electronic music landscape. May weaves an anti-authoritarian narrative amid heaving synths and steel and wood percussion, illustrating the powerful impact of conflict on the fragile people and communities caught in between. Meaningful with just the right amount of groovy mixed in. I like.
