Gregor
Silver Drop

Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Restless Faithful Desperate

Alternative folk duo Kath Bloom and Loren (MazzaCane) Conners had quite a prolific stint in the 80s. Now the kind folk at Chapter Music are reissuing their classic album Restless Faithful Desperate, filled with gentle acoustic folk.

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 ...view item »


Little Ugly Girls
Little Ugly Girls

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok. The strange thing is that this band has been going 20 years and this is their first album. That's a lot of prep but they've supported the likes of Bikini Kill before so that may give you so...view item »


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 &l...view item »


The Cannanes
Howling At All Hours

It’s 11:15am and I’m yet to write about a record that isn’t by a band from the southern hemisphere. A situation on any occasion I’d be fairly happy with but today I have something really special for you. A record by one of my very favourite bands and the king and queen of Australian DIY music, ...view item »


Twerps
The Twerps

Not only have the ever-reliable Underwater Peoples dropped a couple of excellent EPs this week, there's also a full-length from Australia's Twerps. Before I spun it I totally expected this to be a shambling, lo-fi affair but actually it's quite polished, with boy-girl vocals complementing...view item »


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....view item »


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 expe...view item »

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 crunch...view item »


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 B...view item »


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 perf...view item »

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 relea...view item »


The Cannanes
A Love Affair With Nature

Aussie DIY legends The Cannanes originally released their magnum opus A Love Affair With Nature in 1989. Although the band have always operated at an definite underground level, their legendary status was confirmed when they had a pair of Converse shoes made in their honour. They’ve also been the subject of a book...view item »

Dick Diver
Calendar Days

Calendar Days was initially released in 2013 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music: now it sees reissue, courtesy of Trouble In Mind. Dick Diver’s sound is a bright and melodic kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. Pretty welcome on a rambly kind of ...view item »

Holy Balm
Activity

Holy Balm are Australian beat makers who have actually played Sydney Opera House. How do you even find the door? Anyway they produce a kind of bright, bouncy electronica that is aimed at dancefloors rather than home listening. They aim to use tricks such as closeness and atmospheric changes in order to get people up and dancing....view item »

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 anoth...view item »

Crayon Fields
No One Deserves You

Crayon Fields are a Melbourne, Australia group whose bright indie-pop has found popularity around the world. No One Deserves You is their first record in six years: that time seems to have been used honing Geoffery’s thoughtful lyrics and the record’s extremely shiny production style. Releas...view item »

Smokey
How Far Will You Go? The S&M Recordings 1973-81

Vinyl on Chapter Music. The sheer number of heavy-hitters playing on this is reason enough to peak interest. Members of The Stooges, King Crimson, Quiet Riot, The Motels and David Bowie’s Tin Machine. Filled with 70s pre-punk era stoner jams, with excellen...view item »

Laura Jean
Laura Jean

Laura Jean opted for a rockier vibe on 2011's 'A Fool Who'll', but the Melbourne folkie returns to her strengths on this self-titled effort with a stark and more stripped down aesthetic.

Tully

Chapter Music have been reissuing Tully records left right and centre for the past years, and the band's self-titled 'Tully' is the final record to get such treatment. It was initially released in 1970, when the psych, acid and surfin' rock Aussies were perhaps most prevalent in their scene and when they were most into pulling off their rid...view item »

Geoffrey O'Connor
Fan Fiction

Melbourne based songwriter Geoffrey O'Connor once fronted twee pop quartet the Crayon Fields, where he learned to take quirky press shots; with that under his belt, he now performs as a solo act with zero guitars and a lot of synth.

Many bands have one great song. Actually I think every band has one great song, even the bands I hate.....even...Elbow? No actually they are an exception. No great songs. But, anyway, it's something that must always prove difficult when ‘in concert’ later in your career. My favourite tale is of Norman Greenbaum (writer of ‘Spir...view item »

Always
Cruising & Gross Odour

Not since a Harry Pussy 7" I picked up years ago have I seen so many tracks on a seven inch single. 'Cruising + Gross Odour' the debut from Always has nine in total. Always is Alex Vivian from Melbourne and his work is very much based around his vocal. This is Lo-Fi as hell and has strange chanting, spoken word bits...view item »

Thank God for Australians. Here we have three new releases on the ever great Chapter Music. The first two are Japanese bands.

I have some warm, heart felt Japanese female singer songwriter music in the form of a CD called 'Misora' by SACHIKO KANENOBU.
