29 Jun Premiere: Tram Cops – ‘Dan Bilzerian’




Tram Cops are a new five piece band from Melbourne that are made up of the members from the now defunct, dream-pop project Laurence. Tram Cops combine the melted-tape recording sounds of Mac DeMarco with the low key vocals and slick guitar interplay of the Melbourne indie supergroup Free Time.

Today the band has released a five track self-titled EP that is filled with instantly enjoyable little gems. The first song refers to the name of an Instagram star – ‘Dan Bilzerian‘ – and is a song about a dream where he falls in love with someone before he “even knew her name”. Although I am unsure about the reference, ‘Dan Bilzerian’ is a nice short sample size of what to expect from Tram Cops.

The album is barely 12 minutes long across the five tracks, however in those 12 minutes it manages to leave its mark, teasing you into wanting to quickly listen again and milk it for every second it’s worth. My personal favourite track is ‘Hollywood Space Rocket‘.

You can listen to the full self-titled EP below.

29 Jun Premiere: Andrew Samuel – ‘Sitting Here With Nothing Owing’




So, I don’t know much about Andrew Samuel from Sydney, but I think I’ll just refer to him as Australia’s answer to Destroyer – a more optimistic, content, less sappy version of the Canadian singer (also without the brass instruments). Andrew may not have the impressive 20 years of consistent releases behind him, but what I do know is that Dan Bejar would happily feature ‘Sitting Here With Nothing Owing‘ on any of his albums.

Andrew’s upcoming EP Hissing Bitterness, to be released in August, was co-produced with Ryan Brennan (Phantastic Furniture) and features this new release. Apparently after he scrapped a different, highly overproduced single earlier in the year he decided to strip everything back and recorded ‘Sitting Here With Nothing Owing’ in the hallway of his house. The forced nature commonly associated with the pressures of a studio recording aren’t felt here, and it definitely shines through and gives the song a gentle pace.

Lyrically he avoids any cliché lines about nothing, and his inclusion of several subtle pauses along his approach never sound calculated or over-rehearsed. These delicate touches, also found within the instrumentation, make ‘Sitting Here With Nothing Owing’ a highly calming experience that comes with every listen – over and over again.

21 Jun Trading Tunes with Emma Russack

The 27-year-old singer-songwriter from Narooma in NSW, who now resides in Melbourne, just released her third album and it’s one of the best Australian albums to come out this year. For someone who almost gave up making music at the start of 2015, this is an unexpected achievement. It’s lucky that she didn’t give up however because In A New State is a feel good story all about not giving up on your passion, especially when you enter the second half of your 20’s and have to start planning for your future.

The winter timing of the album’s release couldn’t be any more fitting as well – it’s an intimate and reflective album, but it’s not always looking back. Emma Russack looks in several directions, with a new found focus and clarity in what exactly she’s trying to process through her music. It makes the listening experience on every track very easy to immediately associate with. You’re left feeling like you’re listening to a close friend, where there’s no need for vague descriptions.

If you dig Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen, then you’ll love Emma Russack. In A New State is currently the Triple R 102.7FM album of the week and it’s out via the always reliable Spunk Records. Before her upcoming shows, Emma has sent us five tunes that she enjoys with the overall theme being ‘The Beach’.

Upcoming shows:
Saturday June 25th at Shadow Electric in Melbourne.
Friday July 1st at CWA Hall in Stanwell Park.
Saturday July 16th at Post Office Hotel in Melbourne.
Thursday August 4th at Golden Age Cinema in Sydney.


Stolen Violin – ‘Short Cuts To True Love’


Jordan Ireland (aka Stolen Violin and ex-Middle East-er) has a great knack for melody and this track is no exception to that fact. The production is pretty lo-fi which I dig, and the lyrics are sometimes indecipherable – adding to the overall mystery of the thing. I love the line, “Your eyes like an atlas / Getting lost on the mattress / Of a hotel down on the beach”. To be honest, this song kills me every time I hear it.”


Gabriella Cohen – ‘Beaches’


“I really like Gabriella Cohen‘s vibe. She’s a bit edgy and her vocal style is the kind I like – not overly ‘feminine’, but all woman (if that makes sense). I like the simplicity of this track and it’s got some real psychedelic leanings which I’m not generally drawn to (BJM, Velvet Underground etc etc), but I think Gabriella has got something special goin’ on. She’s really clever.”


Soda Eaves – ‘On The Beach’


“Ah, Soda Eaves. My favourite Australian songwriter, hands down. This song is, honest-to-god, one of the most beautiful songs of all time (IMO). The line “Down on the beach / Or up in the air / A sea full of teeth / And you’re fixing your hair”, inspired me to start writing songs for my latest album. It’s poetry. Plain and simple.”


Nathan Roche – ‘Magnetic Memories’


“I’m lucky enough to know Nathan Roche personally. He really is an enigma. I think he wrote this song (and album) when he was on a songwriting holiday on Magnetic Island, Qld. It’s so vibey. So Groovy. I love the line “Magnetic memories / I got a tropical disease / Magnetic memories”. Only Nathan Roche would come up with that little rhyme. Bless him and his whole family.”


Wendy & Bonnie – ‘By The Sea’


Dan Kelly introduced me to this song just last week. We were driving back from the Mornington Peninsula one night after playing a show and he played it in the car. All of us were completely silent and captivated for its duration. It’s weird and moody – one of those songs that takes you to another world. It came out in 1969, but it could’ve been released last week and you’d believe it. Amazing!”

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.
