15 Jun Premiere: Contrast – ‘Vanishing Point’

The photo Contrast uploaded with the YouTube link of their latest single ‘Vanishing Point‘, features fisherman in the sun wearing jackets, and it sums up the 2016 Melbourne winter so far.

It’s been surprisingly sunny, yet typically windy and jacket worthy weather. The photo is also a perfect description of ‘Vanishing Point’, where the guitars are glistening in the sun, yet the band sound nostalgic for summer and are wrapped in warm layers of dream-garage rock sounds in the form of Beach Fossils album Clash The Truth. Next time you’re walking around Melbourne this winter in the sun with your headphones on, put on ‘Vanishing Point’ and you’ll understand what I’m struggling to put into words.

‘Vanishing Point’ is the second single off Contrast’s forthcoming new album and it features flute by Stu Mackenzie (King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard) and backing vocals by Steph Wilson. They’re hoping to tour Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne around July or August this year.

19 May Ripe’s Australian Chart (19/5/16)

Photo by Sarah Chavdaroska // @sarahchav

Ripe’s Australian Chart is our weekly list of the best new music released by Australian artists in the past two months. With so much great local music coming out at the moment, we’ve got 50 tracks listed every week.

This week we start at #45 with Marcus Whale from Sydney. His latest track ‘Vapour‘ features on his debut album Inland Sea out June 10th via the label Good Manners. The album’s shaping up to be an interesting view on the history and the future of Australia. If you like dark and twisted electronic music in the form of LUCIANBLOMKAMP or Friendships, be sure to check out Inland Sea. At the next slot we have ‘Cake‘ by Dannika. It’s track three from their debut four track EP titled For Peaches now out via Solitaire Recordings. The band consists of members from Good Morning, but the lead singer Dannika Horvat‘s summer love vibes is key difference between the two projects. ‘Cake’ compares a lover to a cake that makes her teeth ache. Dannika launches the EP on June the 23rd at The Tote in Melbourne with guest support from other favourites of ours Ciggie Witch, Frances Fox and Zone Out.

We head back up to New South Wales at #29 with ‘Oceans Of Love‘ by Tralala Blip. The single has been released by the Brisbane label Tenth Court, whose releases regularly make appearances in the chart posts. Tralala Blip create electronic-escapist music, that’s great for headphones while walking alone through a rain-forest or in this video-clips case – while scuba-diving. You can catch them playing at the Sydney Opera House on the 25th of May for the TEXx event. We come back to Melbourne for #17 with ‘Cycle‘ by Peruw. Back in November Peruw jumped into #3 on the chart with ‘Namek‘ and ‘Cycle’ makes a similar immediate impression. It’s a seven minute sprawl of deep house layering, which includes elements of world music. The track is as much an atmospheric landscape as it is a specificity designed dance track, which makes it an interesting repeat listen.

We jump into the top ten with ‘Whisper‘ by SHOUSE featuring Habits. SHOUSE caught our attention earlier in the year with their ’90s club-bagger inspired track ‘Support Structure‘. With a focus on melody hooks, it wasn’t hard to imagine a collaboration with fellow Melbourne group Habits being a winner. It’s not actually the chorus that won me over, it’s the pre-chorus section that I can’t get out of my head. It helps when the production would’ve jumped out at me, even if the track was an instrumental. There’s a lesson kids.

However this week is all about the anticipated return of the Melbourne country boy D.D Dumbo at #4. ‘Satan‘ is his first release since signing with 4AD and the do-it-all whizz-kid, delivers a track containing all his trademark D.D Dumbo tendencies, but this time with a powerful production. Oliver Hugh Perry doesn’t give away exactly what direction he’s taking the D.D Dumbo project, but ‘Satan’ leaves all the doors open and makes you want to hear how far he stretches himself on the debut album. I really hope he takes a few more risks, because he has the talent to pull it off. In June he’s playing four times in the UK and then returning home to tour Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne starting late July.

12 May Ripe’s Australian Chart (12/5/16)

Photo by Sarah Chavdaroska // @sarahchav

Ripe’s Australian Chart is our weekly list of the best new music released by Australian artists in the past two months. With so much great local music coming out at the moment, we’ve got 50 tracks listed every week.

We start this week at #50 with Tim Richmond Group in Melbourne and their new track ‘Come To Papa‘. Tim Richmond has brought in Mark Monnone (The Lucksmiths) and Joe Alexander (drummer in everything these days) to record his second album What’s In The Middle? The first single ‘Come To Papa’ sounds somewhere between the light nature of The Ocean Party and one of Ariel Pink‘s cheekier songs. Next at #38 we stay in Melbourne for Camp Cope with ‘Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams‘. It’s track five on their self-titled debut album and aside from addressing 9/11 conspiracy theories, the track is one of many highlights on an impressive and cohesive debut album. ‘Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams’ contains elements of alternative crossover bands such as Joanna Gruesome and is effective at being both melodic and punctual. This month they are touring Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Wollongong and Brisbane.

Carla dal Forno comes in at #35 with ‘Fast Moving Cars‘. The debut single is dark and somewhat avant-garde like Julia Holter or Grouper. Carla dal Forno splits her time between Melbourne and Berlin, and unfortunately she’s now back in Berlin (unless you’re currently in Europe), but she’s a talent worth following nonetheless. At #26 we stay in Melbourne for ‘Rockabye‘ by Silent Jay X Jace XL. This track should’ve been in the chart weeks ago, because I’ve been enjoying the Sacrifice EP for a month now. The two are members in Hiatus Kaiyote and ‘Rockabye’ traces it’s roots from ’90s RnB, but the overall execution is very tight and modern. I’ll just handball you the EP’s review over from Kassie Junkeer.

More Melbourne at #24 with the label Deaf Ambitions signing another winner called Pure Moods. Their debut single ‘Blurb‘ is hard to dislike with it’s feel-good, summery guitars and the chorus lyrics “yeah, there’s somebody out there”. The track oozes some of that early optimism found in bands such as The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Up in Sydney for #22 with ‘Last‘ by Rainbow Chan. Rainbow Chan recently impressed me when she brought her three piece group to Melbourne and ‘Last’ was one of the live standout tracks. ‘Last’ displays the trio’s ability to make you dance, while focusing on layered vocals and crisply delivered minimal instrumentation. If you’re a fan of Empress Of, you’ll really enjoy ‘Last‘.

The next musician lives in London, but comes from Brisbane. Jordan Rakei is finally gearing up to release his debut album Cloak next month and ‘Talk To Me‘ is a very positive sign. The only reason the track’s at #20 is because its sudden ending is a tease. If you’re looking for more artists like Anderson .Paak, then Jordan Rakei may help you. We dive into the top ten with a political song by Terry (Al Montfort from Dick Diver‘s latest project). ‘8 Girls‘ comes in at #7 and it features Al Montfort reviewing eight females in Australian politics. The lyrics as usual have a clever intertwined delivery, which I didn’t notice until I sat down and read the lyrics. I wish Al would work get paid by the ABC to write songs about every upcoming election.

We head back up to Sydney for #6 with ‘She’s Mine‘ by Alex Cameron. The vocalist from Seekae has come along way from the trio’s earlier instrumental material, because now Alex Cameron clearly has a lot to say (just look at his social media). Even his dance moves in the video-clip for ‘She’s Mine’ are not those of someone who doesn’t like attention. But the song doesn’t need the memorable video-clip to be memorable, it already includes lyrics such as “It’s just water, taste it, I promise”, that creep you out, but also make him sound caring and trustworthy. I trust Alex Cameron to produce more memorable moments like ‘She’s Mine’.

However the highest placed new track this week at #4 is a reward for one of the better overall Australian album’s released so far this year. Picking one track from Dad’s Oasis by Great Outdoors wasn’t easy, as my short-list was six tracks from the total of nine tracks. In the end I chose ‘New Skin‘, because it’s probably the most accessible song and it reminds me of The Sea And Cake (and who doesn’t like The Sea And Cake). Zachary Schneider of Totally Mild and Free Time, works as hard as any musician in Melbourne and we have some bloody hard working musicians. By the time we post this chart, he will have likely worked on two more great albums and walked on Mars.

11 May Trading Tunes with Great Outdoors

Great Outdoors is the solo work of guitarist Zachary Schneider most notably from Totally Mild and Free Time. Our site couldn’t get enough of Totally Mild last year. This year we can’t get enough of Free Time. However his debut solo album Dad’s Oasis caught my attention before I realised that Great Outdoors was Zachary Schneider.

Dad’s Oasis not only proves how vital his talents are for both Totally Mild and Free Time, but you leave it thinking that Zachary Schneider must be the most underrated Australian musicians in 2016. Dad’s Oasis contains influence traces from everything between Real Estate, The Sea And Cake and ’90s era Blur.

He sounds surprisingly very comfortable as a lead vocalist and his low-key vocal hooks are everywhere throughout Dad’s Oasis. His careful attention to detail is exquisite.  The albums execution from start to finish is simply unquestionable and when the album does finish, you just want to play it again and again.

Zachary has titled his selections for Trading Tunes the Election Campaign Feels Mix.


Ryuichi Sakamoto – ‘Thousand Knifes’


“Whats going on people?! It seems like every time I open my computer I’m confronted by another knife on Australia. The list of issues goes on and on. A thousand knifes driven into your back by your government and it’s alignment with Corporate America et al. Don’t even get me started on the two bozos we have to pick from. It’s looking bleak folks. Lets have a revolution? But lets make the soundtrack ecstasy flashback synth and wild guitar solos. It’ll be better than working for the rent.”


Haruomi Hosono – ‘Femme Fatale’


“This one goes out to my mate Bronwyn Bishop. After we take down parliament, we’ll take Bron’s favourite out for a spin – the parliamentary chopper – fly out to Fraser Island. As we come in to land, we’ll be playing Hosono, like ‘Ride Of The Valkyries‘ from Apocalypse Now. ‘Yes’ to marimba. ‘No’ to entitled seventy year old jet setters.”


The Haunted – ‘Untie Me’


“Debt. Looming over us like the sword of Damocles. Can we ever live the lives our parents had? Can our children ever expect to get a decent education? Does anybody else feel haunted? Fortunately, we are told, we’ll never make enough money to ever have to pay it off. I don’t care for this. Untie me baby.”


Joubert Singers (Larry Levan Mix) – ‘Stand On The Word’


Larry Levan was an inspirational DJ, producer and advocate for gay rights. I feel like this track has a message. “Stand on the word – on the word of God”. Stamp it out.”


Mitch Margo – ‘Free The Weed’


“Oh yeah and by the way – FREE THE WEED!.”
