01 Mar Ripe’s Australian Chart (1/3/16)

 

We start at #28 with the Melbourne duo Leisure Suite and their latest track ‘Shame‘, off their second EP Lay Low. If you’re a fan of Rhye or Banoffee, check them out. Great Earthquake comes in at #26 with ‘Thought Broadcasting‘, off an EP with the same name. It’s the work of the Melbourne-based Noah Symons, and the project sounds like a cross between a dreamy version of Ponytail and the sporadic patterns of Terrible Truths.

Melbourne hip-hop duo Milwaukee Banks slide into #23 with ‘Reincarnated‘, which will feature on their long-awaited debut album Deep Into The Night, out March 18th. I’m digging its Cities Aviv-styled production and the assertiveness of Dyl Thomas. LUCIANBLOMKAMP, also from Melbourne, comes in at #22 with ‘The Overman‘ off his upcoming sophomore album Bad Faith. You can catch Lucian playing along with Lower Spectrum during late-April in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Speaking of Perth, we’ve got new music from Arvo Tanty, with ‘Forget This Mourning‘ at #20. The track’s dreamy loops draw comparisons to early Atlas Sound or Brothertiger, and you can hear the full Tender Yonder LP later this year. At #15 we have Wax Witches from the Gold Coast (currently residing in Brooklyn) – you may remember Alex Wall from Bleeding Knees Club. ‘Morning Flowers‘ has a strong The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart vibe, and it’ll feature on the new album Memory Painting, out on the 18th of March.

Totally Mild return at #14 with ‘Today Tonight‘ off their new three-track live EP Alive In Denmark, which also features another new live track called ‘More‘. ‘Today Tonight‘ doesn’t feature any drums, showing a more stripped-back side of Totally Mild. Low Lux from Sydney come in at #13 with their cover of ‘Girls‘ by Royal Headache. Whereas the original used adrenaline to carry its momentum, Low Lux have cut the pace in half and wrought a more nostalgic atmosphere. It’s a clever and well-executed cover, one that most artists wouldn’t have thought about attempting.

Brisbane’s Mexico City come in at #8 with ‘Rosewood Line‘ from their third album When The Day Goes Dark. If you’re wondering who Mexico City are, they’ve supported The Black Keys, Cat Power, The Drones and many more, sounding somewhere between Cass McCombs and Phosphorescent. Next, we have Summer Flake with ‘Wine Won’t Wash Away‘ at #7. After releasing the underrated Time Rolls By EP last year, the Melbourne-via-Adelaide trio are set to release a new album titled Hello Friends. ‘Wine Won’t Wash Away’ is ridiculously contagious and full of summer joy. Interestingly, it was recorded and mixed by Geoffrey O’Connor, who generally records slick, catchy, ’80s-sounding alt-pop songs.

We stay in Melbourne with SHOUSE featuring Habits on ‘Support Structure‘ at #6. The duo includes Ed Service of IO and Jack Madin of The Harpoons. We actually heard this track, reminiscent of Orbital or The KLF, in their Ripe Mix for us last month. The catchy vocal hook provided by Mohini of Habits could easily have been lifted from a classic early ’90s club hit.

However, the best new track of the week drops in at #2: ‘Got Something‘ by Jamal Amir. Jamal is part of the emerging Melbourne label Temporal Cast, featuring Cale Sexton and Kangaroo Skull. ‘Got Something‘ is straight up nasty smooth house, which makes me want to dance (even while I’m currently hobbling around on crutches). You can catch all three Temporal Cast artists playing along with Sleep D and Chiara Kickdrum this Friday the 4th of March at Goodtime Studios in Melbourne.

22 Feb Ripe’s Australian Chart (22/2/16)

 

Ripe’s Australian Chart is updated each week with our top tracks recently uploaded by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

At #30 we have Melbourne’s Daniel Trakell, who is set to release a six track EP titled Paradise in April. ‘Wasted Light‘ is the first single, and if you’re a fan of Tobias Jesso Jr., you’ll dig it. Also out of Melbourne, producer Asdasfr Bawd returns at #28 with a choppy dance remix of the new James Blake track ‘Modern Soul‘. I OH YOU‘s latest signing MOSSY has released his debut single ‘Electric Chair‘ that will appear on his debut EP in May, and jumps in at #27. It’s a cross between the vocals of Oasis and the slower jams on Tame Impala‘s latest album Currents.

The Melbourne duo at Stina Tester & Cinta Masters come in at #22 with ‘Deep Sleep‘ via Listen Records. It starts off a little like ‘She’s Lost Control‘ by Joy Division, before hitting a gothic spiral of ’70s analog keyboard. It’s not exactly The Doors; more like Blondie, or today’s comparison would be Austra. At #21, Sydney’s Charles Murdoch has released ‘Open‘ featuring Chloe Kaul from the duo KLLO. This soothing tune featured on Murdoch’s recently-released debut album Point.

Jumping up to #15, we have ‘Famously Monogamous‘ by Jen Cloher from the Milk! Records family. It’s from a collective Febraury release by the label, and it moves back and forth between sounding like Yuck in the verses, and Weezer in the chorus. Next at #14 is Mio, the project of Melbourne’s Lisa Miosku. Her lo-fi cover of ‘Morning Sun‘ could be mistaken for a single recorded back in the ’40s, her gentle, feather-light sound providing more tension headache relief than paracetamol.

Sliding in at #11 is Ned Beckley aka Lower Spectrum from Perth, who just dropped the second single ‘Masquerade‘ from his upcoming New Haze EP. The track tends to bobble up and down like a ’90s movie trailer theme song – which isn’t a bad thing, because by moving himself away from the strictly dance side of electronic music, he’s quietly carving out his own niche. At #10 is Mall Grab from Newcastle, who has uploaded the third (and title) track from his upcoming four-track Sun Ra EP. If you’re a fan of deep, minimal techno like Leon Vynehall, then start following Mall Grab.

Bendigo’s Fountaineer are set to release their first album later this year, and ‘Still Life‘ finds itself at #6. If Matt Berninger (The National) covered the album Slave Ambient by The War On Drugs, it would likely sound like ‘Still Life’. A lot of my appreciation for ‘Still Life’ sits within its subtle guitar details and effective, restrained vocal delivery. Another country Victorian band, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, continue their hot form with ‘Write Back‘ at #4. With every new R.B.C.F. tune at this point, I automatically assume it will have me shaking around in my chair, due to their endless slick guitar interplay and upbeat nature.

Brisbane band Major Leagues write dreamy garage-pop melodies as well as anyone in the country, and ‘Better Off‘ is another strong example. They make it sound effortless and that’s why ‘Better Off’ comes in at #3. The EP Dream States comes out in April, but I recommend catching them next month on their Australian tour with Alvvays, a band who impressed me at SXSW last year. Melbourne’s I’lls singer Simon Lam has a long-running solo project called Nearly Oratorio, and has nabbed the #2 spot this week. ‘Tin‘ will feature on his new EP in April and it has feels attached all over it when he sings “I’m home sick, when I’m out of you”. I loved the potential of I’lls, but I also can’t help but think that the stripped-back clarity of his own project will work even better. Nearly Oratorio has potential to be the project that makes Simon Lam a household Australian name.

At #1, Good Morning replace themselves with another track off their Glory EP called ‘Give Me Something To Do‘. You know you’re in a class of your own when you’re only competing against yourself. ‘Give Me Something To Do’ is their most versatile song to date, starting at a breezy pace with a casual saxophone before fading out, only to re-emerge with a guitar riff that gives me an excited smile every time. Damn these cheeky Melbourne buggers and their wizardry.

16 Feb Ripe’s Australian Chart (16/2/16)

 

Ripe’s Australian Chart is back for 2016. Once again we’ll be posting an update each week on our top tracks recently uploaded by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

We start at #30 with ‘Baker‘ by Robert Muinos from Melbounre. ‘Baker’ is the third track on his latest EP titled You Are Alone. Robert channels the quiet sorrow of Elliot Smith with life observing lyrics you’d hear from Sun Kil Moon or Father John Misty. At #27 Diet from Melbourne are back with a follow up to their highly addictive first single ‘Your House‘. You’d likely slide ‘The Rip‘ into the surf rock genre, but it’s not the sunny surf rock kind, more the rainy and wearing a bodysuit kind.

Up in Sydney; Marcus Whale from Collarbones dropped his first official single that’s not a demo. ‘My Captain‘ finds itself at #23 with its industrial pop sounds. I can now see where Marcus Whale is trying to take his sound, and there’s definitely an interesting market for it. Back in Melbourne at #20 with the trio The Sanctuary, who pushed past that post-Flume sound with their first single ‘Miss You‘. The vocals carry a defeated and vulnerable tone that Oscar Key Sung routinely pulls off effectively.

The most moving track of the week goes to Hayden Calnin at #18 with ‘Cut Love‘. Hayden sets a very bleak landscape via Sigur Rós with Bon Iver vocals. It’s a combination I’ve heard many times before, but he sells the emotion well when he sings “cut love!”. The next producer is a little mysterious; I only know that Nolan House is based in Melbourne. At #15, ‘On The Wall‘ pops with ear-grabbing sounds that carefully get pushed and then released. It’s meticulous without sounding robotic.

We jump up to #8 with the Melbourne duo Back Back Forward Punch, whose name always reminds me BadBadNotGood. They’re back with the most addictive song of the week called ‘Machine Believing‘. It’s vintage Miami Horror with a deep house bassline. Not the most complex recipe, but good luck not wanting to dance immediately. The Vacant Smiles are next up. At #5, ‘Drenched‘ jumps out at you like early Surfer Blood or even The Strokes without the classic guitar hooks, but instead with a smooth and sneaky slow down change up one minute in. If you dig ‘Drenched’, I suggest giving the whole new album You’re Not Really Here a listen.

However the track of the week at #3 goes to Ara Koufax with ‘Makers‘. The confidence is glowing in the Melbourne duo right now. ‘Makers’ sounds like they’re just toying with us, that’s how effortless it sounds. When you feel like an artist is both teasing you and pleasing you at the time, you know the creative juices are flowing. The best part is that it’s hard to directly trace the influences behind ‘Makers’. Ara Koufax are coming into their own in 2016.

06 Dec Ripe’s Australian Chart (6/11/15)

Welcome to our latest feature – Ripe’s Australian Chart, where we post an update every Sunday on our top tracks uploaded in the past month by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

For this week’s new entries, we have at #25 ‘Spring 2‘ from Rat & Co in Melbourne, which is the second part of a two-track release (‘Spring‘ having been released last month). If you’re looking for some Boards Of Canada escapism, Rat & Co are worth diving into further.

LUCIANBLOMKAMP emerges from the Melbourne shadows once again with new single ‘Comfort‘ – although the track provokes unease more than anything else, skittering its way in at #22.

We get orchestral at #20 with Anatole up in Sydney. ‘Colours‘ is the second single from the upcoming Surrounds EP, out on December 18th via Teef Records. It’s filled with violins, viola, cello, double bass and a clarinet – I wish Bonobo was still recording music with real instruments like this.

The Shards make a reappearance in the chart posts with ‘Gossip & Bands‘ at #13. All we know so far is that they’re from Melbourne, and this song sounds like a softer number by Dick Diver. Both the previously-listed ‘Making Shapes Out Of The Ground‘ and now ‘Gossip & Bands’ feature on their latest EP, Best New Reissue.

The Melbourne duo Ara Koufax are back at #6 with their first new song in six months, and it’s called ‘Adult Concepts‘. If it sounds like an introduction track, it’s because it was originally written to be exactly that. If you’re looking for more gentle, sprawling electronic music like ‘Adult Concepts’, check out Tycho‘s Burning Man sets on SoundCloud.

I’d never heard of Julia R. Anderson from Brisbane until a few days ago, but I’m already very intrigued and ‘In The Beginning‘ jumps right up into #5 this week. She looks like Tune-Yards and sings like Melody Echo Chamber or Twin Sister, and sounds just as tantalising as all three of those artists. Remember the name Julia R. Anderson; her debut album comes out 2016.

I’m not sure how I missed the initial upload of ‘Black Dignity‘ by Sampa The Great from Sydney. It’s the first single post her head-turning The Great Mixtape debut just three months ago. She’s already been labeled a female Kendrick Lamar, but I hear Shabazz Palaces in the space-beats, and even early Clipping in her flow. This definitely won’t be the last time that she features in the top 5.

Peruw out of Melbourne drops almost ten minutes of deep tech house at #3 with ‘Namek‘. Fresh off playing at Earthcore, while in the midst of his own personal Geyser tour around Sydney and Melbourne, Peruw clearly has high ambitions. ‘Namek’ never tries to overexert itself, instead transfixing the listener within its own restrained parameters – the hallmark of a producer who knows exactly what he’s doing.

29 Nov Ripe’s Australian Chart (29/11/15)

Welcome to our latest feature – Ripe’s Australian Chart, where we post an update every Sunday on our top tracks uploaded in the past month by Australian artists, ranked all the way to #1. You’ll find our chart below, and a weekly playlist on the Ripe SoundCloud.

For this week’s new entries, we start with Us The Band from Sydney who jump into spot #20 this week with ‘And I Will‘. If you enjoy frenetic, lo-fi garage rock, then check out Us The Band or other bands on the Rice Is Nice record label such as The Laurels, Richard In Your Mind or You Beauty.

Next we have Luna Ghost from Melbourne with their latest song ‘Eyes Of Sleep‘. If you dig dreamy, psych or bands such as Flyying Colours or Ride, then the washed out, wailing guitars of Luna Ghost will entice you.

Flamingo Jones takes us on a tropical trip with ‘Fred Bear‘ at #12. The project out of Melbourne is a cross between Animal Collective and El Guincho; or, as he self-describes it, “nature beat”. Perfect for summer or just playing with your dog.

We have more glitterwave from Abelard at #7 with ‘I’m OK For Now‘.  With a few elements of RnB and post-dubstep on the vocals, it’s another step forward in the progression for the Melbournian.

The biggest track to emerge this week was ‘Solstice‘ by Melbourne’s Knightlife, which lands at #2. It’s off a new four-track EP titled VII, which is being released via Cut Copy‘s label Cutter Records. ‘Solstice’ is brimming with cool colours and smooth vibes, and each layer that pops up will get another limb moving. It’s instantaneous, but also rewarding on repeat listens. After a four year wait since his last EP, welcome back Knightlife.
