This. Is one of my favourites of Francesca Gonzales... who I discovered with delight on the weekend at Benalla's micro-festival Happy Wanderer. What a vocal powerhouse, and some really pretty melodic hooks in tracks like this and Make My Life.

This could legit be from the 90s. Some blissful melting pot creation of Nirvana, Bush, Everclear, continue naming 90s alt-rock bands from your own memory bank... I really, really like this.

I knew I would probably like this. Kingsmill gave it big ups, and the title is schweet. Sound is polished, vocals are flawless. There's a lilting swagger to it that is in no rush but in total control. And then the belting bridge/finale seals the deal.

Gurrl, you have some powerful pipes! This is different to most things playing on the radio right now, and that is reason enough to give it props. I love the raw musical elements of guitar, drums and vocals. Keep doing this - and thanks for sharing.

What a smouldering, sexy track - love your work Royce. I'm going through the Unearthed-artists-who-list-Billie-Eilish-as-an-influence article, happy with what i'm hearing so far.

OOFT! This is a smoking track Indy. SuperUser Pip Rasmussen said it best when she said she's 'swooning'. Girl, me too. This is moody, with layered harmonies, a simple but effective key chord progression - and it builds. It goes somewhere. Thank you *prayer hand emoji*.

I like this fam, it's catchy and hook-driven. One thing I would say - it needs like a break-it-down middle eight bit? Perhaps this is why I prefer the remix version, because there's more going on. Short, sharp and fun!

Slinky, sexy, cool - love your work Phoebe. And you know what I like about this a lot? It is not really something you hear on triple j. I hope that doesn't mean it doesn't get airplay, because it's smooth without being dull.

Really bold, ambitious sounds. I love how it opens with that soaring vocal melody... it's got a nostalgic feel to it.

I really, really like this - it's sweeping dusty plains and wistful reflection while driving on wide roads. I love the twang of the guitar and the cry of the strings. Has this been receiving airplay? I hope this has been receiving airplay.

Wow*. This is magic - it manages to be both a hard-hitting anti-rape feminist message and sweetly irresistibly melodic. It soars into the chorus line, and sends chills up the spine. "Why was she all alone, wearing her shirt that low?" is a damn powerful lyrical moment.

*I know I'm late to the Stella Donnelly party - can only apologise and thank goodness I got here eventual...

An authentic local voice, layered on top of trappy beats and a squelchy repetitive loop - noice.

What Max said is right - sounds like we are inside an aquarium. Really luscious, full, blissed out sound. I like it!

Driving sound, twangy electric gee-tar, echoed and layered vocal line lends that upbeat euphoria (must be cos it tricks us into thinking it's a singalong, which is always feel-good)...

This is pretty great in the verse, but it's in the chorus that it takes off into properly catchy and a little soaring...
