Emma Russack
Winter Blues

Melbourne songwriter Emma Russack’s fourth album is the result of live, single-take, no-rehearsal sessions with Liam Halliwell (Ciggie Witch) and Dylan Young. The songs benefit from the immediacy and simplicity captured in this process, while Russack’s lyrics - “Winter blues / Blame it on the winter blues” are direct, unpretentious and poignant.

Nadia Reid
Listen to Formation, Look for the Signs

Nadia Reid evokes the spirit of her homeland, New Zealand, better than those Flight Of The Conchords boys ever could. Listen to Formation, Look for the Signs is filled with songs of folk music for wide open spaces, with songs as personal as the firm portrait on the sleeve art. Released on the Spunk label.

Holly Throsby
After a Time

After A Time is one of the most remarkable sounding albums yet from Holly Throsby. Holly’s band for this release is a remarkable thing: it features Bree van Reyk of Seeker Lover Keeper, Marcus Whale of Collarbones, and Mick Turner of the god-damned Dirty Three! Plus there is also a guest vocal spot for Mark Kozelek on one track. LP release on Spunk! label.

Crepes
Channel Four

Crepes are comprised of a bunch of Aussie musicians who have been in or played with The Murlocs, Dreamin’ Wild, Fraser A. Gorman, Tropical Snakes and Robot Fox. They take their influences from Gary Numan, Cass McCombs and Devo. This beguiling mix make debut album, Channel Four a cocktail of surf-tinted jangle and ethereal synth sounds served up in a vintage pop glass.

Jordan Ireland with Purple Orchestra
Jordan Ireland with Purple Orchestra

Once of The Middle East, Jordan Ireland comes through with his second project since the group’s disintegration in 2011, and the first with his Purple Orchestra. They’re not actually an orchestra though - it’s used as more of a catch-all term for a band that throws together lilting pianos, harps, dulcimers, electronics and voice choirs in a similar manner to, say, Sigur Ros or Sung Tongs era Animal Collective.

Heart Beach
Kiss Your Face

Tasmanian indie-pop trio Heart Beach follow up their 2015 self-titled debut album with “Kiss Your Face” on Sydney’s Spunk Records. Lead single “Brittle” channels the downcast melodies, waning vocals and bittersweet grooves that form the group’s ten-track LP. Record comes with a handy download code too, so you can take these sad-pop rhythms and angsty guitar riffs with you on the go and hit yourself right in the feels in all sorts of environments.

Shining Bird
Black Opal

Shining Bird have been dreaming up Australian-tinged dream pop in Australia for several years now, and now have a second full length to share with the world. Black Opal is a big-sounding record that harks back to some of the more epic moments of 80’s pop: listen out for the gated-reverb drums! Released by the Spunk label.

The Ocean Party
Restless

Melbourne-based indie-pop six piece The Ocean Party make the kind of fresh indie music you’d expect from an Aussie band. Similar to recent favourites The Goon Sax and The Phoenix Foundation. You will hear cap-dothing to Gayngs and Destroyer through their use of piano and sax. Restless is a diverse collection of songs - probably resulting from each of the six members contributing songs.
