New Music Video: Rob Bravery "Knock Out Ginger" (2014)

What an incredible track from Bristol artist Rob Bravery. The only way I can describe it is that I imagine this is what a Massive Attack song with Michael Jackson would have sounded like. It's something that you have to listen to for yourself though, so go ahead and end your week on a good note (and a bunch of huskies!):

Single Stream: Good Morning "Don't Come Home Today" (2014)

I'm going to go ahead and call this one of the best (and probably least well-known) new songs I've heard in many a moon. Good Morning, a Melbourne duo featuring Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons, have only existed for a short time, and have but one recorded song to their names, but this laid-back gem points to good things.

14 years after Sydney based singer-songwriter Forster Anderson picked up his first guitar - following his exposure to the grunge scene of Surry Hill's iconic Hopetoun Hotel - he stands equipped with a modest five-song EP to showcase his soulful blend of rock, country, and folk. The EP, Banter, is a nice and straight-forward collection of some very fine melodies, a great sense of rhythm, and a charming Aussie twang. Listen to the EPs strongest cut "Orange Tin" and follow the link below to stream all five songs.
