Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Sand In My Shoe

Ooh Sand in My Shoe(s) by Dido. Haunting eh? Legendary folk duo Kath Bloom & Loren Connors provided their own end of the holiday lament with this 1983 album which was only pressed in a short run of 200 or so copies at the time. In the intervening years the legend surrounding these explorers grew and so it is time for a luxury re-issue with digital bonus tracks and a live EP. For the uninitiated this is beautiful fragile folk mixing originals with traditional material which gained long term fandom from the likes of Bill Callahan and Mark Kozelek.

Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Moonlight

Moonlight is the second Kath Bloom & Loren Connors re-issue this week and was their final album released in 1984 before the dissolution of their partnership as both took time away from music for the best part of a decade. It sees the duo playing in a more intuitive, freeform style than earlier records with Kath's delicate songs backed up by Loren's supportive playing. This re-issue of the original short run pressing includes digital bonus tracks of rare of the era live recordings and is available in two vinyl colours (while stocks last).

Honey 2 Honey
A Taste Of

A Taste Of two cities? Since their last album Honey 2 Honey are now a cross country quartet with two members each in Canberra and Sydney. Despite that, they're still mining that same dubby R&B vein that they've done in the past. And it's still as intense and strange and intimate. Most of all, it shows a masterful use of space. 

David Chesworth
Layer On Layer

Reissue of Australian David Chesworth's second album Layer On Layer. After his first, a mostly solo affair, Chesworth started to work with other musicians to bring his sophomore to life. Bringing together punk and funk musics in an incredibly detailed, dense, but quite relaxed package. Sounds the work of a musician more mature than the 21 years Chesworth had at the time. Om Chapter Music.

Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

School Damage
A To X

Pop music as made by Melbourne young guns doing it on their own, with a sparky, punky, jumpy guitar band vibe. School Damage have the tight drums, bright organ leads and anti-virtuoso vocals that really make this kind of music shine, and their second album A To X contains fifteen tracks of that goodness! Lovely stuff.

Laura Jean
Devotion

Chapter Music present the latest LP from Australian Music Prize nominee and Jenny Hval collaborator Laura Jean. Devotion is quite a departure from the music of Jean’s previous albums, with the singer trading her previously folksy sound in for a peppy synth-pop look. Tracks like ‘Girls On The TV’ and ‘Touchstone’ wouldn’t sound out of place on Italians Do It Better.

Kath Bloom
Pass Through Here

Available on 12” Vinyl LP and CD from Chapter music, Pass Through Here is the first album from Connecticut based folk musician Kath Bloom in 5 years. This release marks venturing into some new sonic territory, whilst keeping the rawness of her much more stripped down recordings from the '80s. Moving to Carolina to record with Jeff Hassay and Levi Strom, washes of synthesizer underline Bloom’s heart breaking vocals.

The Goon Sax
Up To Anything

Look at the guy in the middle of the photograph? Look kinda familiar? Well it's Louis Forster son of Robert and...well...let's say the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree. The Goon Sax (brilliantly awful name by the way) play the kind of charming naive pop that a certain Australian band liked to peddle some years ago. They have another fine songwriter too in their ranks. From the few song clips I've heard, this should be really good fun.  

Totally Mild
Her

Totally Mild hail from Melbourne and are fronted by vocalist Elizabeth Mitchell. Her is the band’s second album, which follows their 2015 debut, Down Time. Their indie-pop sound is lushly wrapped, a perfect vehicle for Mitchell’s pitch-perfect voice and balances darkness and light with panache.

Montero
Performer

This new LP from Australian ditty-spinner Montero was recorded with Tame Impala’s Jay Watson and Riccardo Damian, a man who has worked on records for Drake and Sampha. As one might expect from that cast list, Performer fronts cut after cut of expensive-sounding, vaguely psychedelic soft-rock. Tracks like ‘Vibrations’ sound like a lost collaboration between Burt Bacharach and Ariel Pink. Lush.

Beaches
Second Of Spring

Australian four piece psych-rock band Beachers return with their third full length album. Woozy and hypnotic post-punk meets psychedelic pop, Second Of Spring brings crunching motorik drive, hazy vocals and psyched out guitars and cheeky synths. Great to drive into the sun to. Double album on LP and CD on Chapter Music.

The Stevens
Good

The Stevens might have the sort of name that is easy to forget but we think you might like their music. You certainly will if you like brash and melodic power pop. The Melbourne band make the kind of fuzzy lo-fi pop that isn’t as straightforward as it initially seems. It’s twists and turns recall Bob Mould or early Teenage Fanclub.  

School Damage
School Damage

Defined by off-kilter keyboard riffs and swerving basslines, brand new outfit School Damage are stamping their mark on leftfield Aussi-pop scenes. "I think the internet calls it a quarter life crisis" explains Carolyn Hawkins, on the motives behind her self-titled debut; hence why this piece provides the perfect piece of escapism from social anxiety. 

NO ZU
Body2Body2Body EP

NO ZU drag a pair of tracks off of their Afterlife album and hand them over to Jonny Sender of Konk and legendary band A Certain Ratio for reversioning. The latter is particularly interesting, as it marks the first time in eight years that the Ratio have recorded something! Plus a remix of each track by NO ZU themselves. Body2Body2Body is out on Chapter Music.

Jessica Says
Do With Me What U Will

Jessica Says had her career rudely interrupted by a major accident eight years ago, but she now returns to the musical arena with a record that engages with that recent past. Do With Me What U Will is a mature and catchy pop record that features Jessica’s cello as well as her vocals. CD / LP release on Chapter Music.
