New music by Melbourne-based Kirkis

Andrey Varela Reader Find

By Andrey Varela in New Music on Tuesday 20 August 2013

I met Kirkis about a year ago through mutual friends, and we got talking a bit at the café he was working at. At some point he casually mentioned that I should come along to one of his gigs. I didn’t realize he made music, and as every other kid in Melbourne seems to be […]

Waste Away: the new single by Dead Stars

Dead Stars Reader Find

By Dead Stars in New Music on Tuesday 21 May 2013

Waste Away is the first song on our new EP, High Gain. It’s probably one of my favorites because it’s very new. We wanted one more song for the record, so we wrote the basic idea very quickly and pretty much learned it in the studio. It’s about sitting around doing nothing and being fine […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Music on Friday 19 April 2013

Andrew Wyatt (from Miike Snow) enlisted the entire Prague Philharmonic Orchestra for his new album. It’s amazing. It feels vintage and cinematic, yet new and fresh all at once. The album, Descender, won’t be released until April 30 in the States, but in the meantime, you can stream the full saga in all its glory here.

Calling All Workers: music by Roll The Dice

Stubborn Heart Reader Find

By Stubborn Heart in New Music on Saturday 23 March 2013

My favourite album of recent years is In Dust by Roll The Dice. It’s an electro-acoustic affair full of piano, heavy bass, ear-pleasing effects and space. Gently emotive, it makes aimless, middle-of-the-night driving feel like bathtime.

Gold tones: ratface please! The new mixtape from Ratface

Ratface Reader Find

By Ratface in New Music on Tuesday 22 January 2013

This mixtape is the first project I have put out in a couple of years. I made all the beats and produced it. I think it’s a pretty raw and personal record and very different from other projects I’m currently working on. But it was definetly an album I needed to make.

Steven Quinn Reader Find

By Steven Quinn in New Music on Tuesday 22 January 2013

Jeff Leopard is my new song for the week, but I’m loving the whole album. I’ve been waiting on it since I heard them a few months back. The video by Jonny Sanders is also great. If you like Holy Fuck, Battles, and LITE, you should like Gallops.

After a career spanning nearly two decades, The Sea and Cake have released their tenth studio album, Runner. As a little gift for fans, they have also released a demo version of their track, A Mere. The arrangement feels soft and intimate, full of Sam Prekop’s breathy, angst filled vocals. Being drained of any sounds […]

Charlie Gleason Reader Find

By Charlie Gleason in New Music on Thursday 7 June 2012

Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known as Marina and the Diamonds, has recently dropped her sophomore album, Electra Heart. A departure from the indie folk sound of her debut, the album captures the kind of synth driven pop that makes me dance like a idiot in my car, most notably to the brilliant single Primadonna.

New music by Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men

Barry Morris Reader Find

By Barry Morris in New Music on Friday 25 May 2012

Hailing from Iceland, this six-piece band, whose fantasy world is brought to life in their music, have been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire, Laura Marling, and elements of Bat for Lashes, and a sweeter dash of The Vaselines. They meld traditional sea-shanty folk, using male and female vocals, and beautiful harmonies, with tales […]
