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.

The whole band delivers on this track which feels a bit like a 6 and a half minute musical tapas meal, tasting a little of everything they have to offer. So who can I give my damn money to to get a taste of this live???

THE BEATS. THEY KNOCK LIKE THE HAND OF DEATH AT MY DOOR. OVERCOME WITH THE URGE TO BURN ONE AND TAKE PHOTOS ON 35mm FILM. SO DOPE.

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.

Damn I love this track. AYWIN sounds like the hungriest rapper in the game, and likely inclined to finesse her way to the top of the game very quickly. Come visit the Swish sometime and see the realness in the real.

Wow this is a throwback! The sound of the drum machine, guitars and even vocal delivery and processing is incredibly accurate for the sound of 80s/early 90s Rock- whether its Aus, UK or US. Strong song-writing- really love the atmostpheric guitars that come in at the end of each verse phrase. Brb going to 1990 for a bit.

Great songwriting here although I often felt like I had no idea what Chloe is saying- which I guess isn't so important when you have a voice that glows like the warm light of the afternoon sun in winter, poking through the trees. Interested to hear more.

Maybe I'm biased but this man is the future of Aus hiphop. This track in particular paints the picture most clearly- the rhymes are musical AND philosophical, the beat is banging but also moody. Mans played the saxophone parts live as well. He owns this song, and owns the style. I think the NY rapper KA said it best and I see it in JayCee all the time- "When you find your lane you can...

Strong return to form for the BNE 3-piece. Sam Hickey is back to his old tricks, marrying powerfully suburban scenes and events to ambiguous if obvious significant life moments. I really enjoyed the vocal performance and would love to hear it forward in the mix a little more, with the guitars stepping back in turn. Loved the delay effect that leads into the bridge and the energy of the bridge! ...
