Music Video of the Day: L-Fresh the Lion ft. Parvyn Kaur Singh "Get Mine" (2015)

L-Fresh the Lion may be a talented writer and performer, but the way he has been able to use his platform as an artist to project his beliefs and messages that resonate with many people around the country over the past year especially has been nothing short of stirring. His latest tune, "Get Mine", featuring the perfectly placed vocal of Parvyn Kaur Singh, is the hip hop artist's most current example of turning frustration into sheer determination - the music video is equally as effective.

Single of the Day: KLP Feat. Remi "Recover" (2015)

Sydney's KLP (AKA Kristy Lee Peters) has teamed up with unstoppable Melbourne rapper Remi for her new track "Recover", a sure-shot hit for Australia's festival season with its breathlessly energetic vibe. Full of Kristy's layered vocals and Remi's witty lyricism, the hyperactive song is yet another strong offering from the multi-talented Triple J House Party host.

Single of the Day: L D R U (feat. Paige IV) "Keeping Score" (2015)

Trap is the flavour of the day with L D R U’s “Keeping Score” featuring Paige IV. The interplay between Paige IV’s vocals and the piano chordal progressions are the true heroes of this track, building up brilliantly to the instrumental breaks that drop with awesome contrast.

Music Video of the Day: Moon "Sidewinder" (2015)

Today’s video of the day is an absolute blinder of a track from Sydney prog-rock three piece MOON. This four-and-a-half minute instrumental is a phenomenal recording in its own right, yet when it’s combined with this fascinating video it somehow becomes even better. Also, their drummer is 12 years old. Their debut album The Orbitor is due for release in early 2016 and if this is anything to go by I’ll certainly be picking it up.

Music Video of the Day: Jamie XX “Good Times” (2015)

“Good Times”, lifted off Jamie XX’s debut album In Colour has already proven to be a hit, clocking up 22 million plays on Spotify alone, and it’s just gotten the video treatment courtesy of director Rollo Jackson.

Exclusive Album Stream: Saintseneca "Such Things" (2015 LP)

Columbus, Ohio's Saintseneca are delivering their much anticipated new album Such Things on October 9th through Anti-, and we are excited to bring you the exclusive Australian pre-release stream! The album is their follow up to the acclaimed Dark Arc, and brings together the worlds of punk, folk and rock and roll, with soaring and anthemic choruses.

Single of the Day: Deena "Turpentine" (2015)

Brisbane’s Deena has just released her new single; the dark bluesy track “Turpentine”. Opening simply with Deena’s powerful vocals alongside electric guitar, this song grows into an intense, distorted climax. Deena and her band have just kicked off their Australian tour in support of the single, making their way around all major Australian cities. Treat yourself to “Turpentine” here, and check the tour dates below.

Music Video of the Day: JOY. “About Us” (2015)

JOY.’s sound is the combination of flawlessly stunning vocals over minimalistic modern production. Her new track “About Us” stays true to form, and now has a beautiful video alongside it; working off the dark vibes of the track to create an unbelievably cohesive piece of visual and audio art.

Single of the Day: Matt Corby "Monday" (2015)

It's been a long wait for new Matt Corby music. Despite playing headline shows to thousands of people around Australia, the singer is yet to release his debut album. His new track, "Monday" screams Jeff Buckley influences, and we're definitely not complaining about that; layered vocals and simple percussion create an atmospheric space for Corby's falsetto to sit perfectly over. Give it a listen here...

Music Video of the Day: Commandeur "Wasted" (2015)

Sydney-based drummer, songwriter and producer Commandeur (perhaps better known as one of the founding members of the late Operator Please) has released his debut solo single "Wasted". Today, its accompanying music video has taken out our Music Video of the Day title!

Single of the Day: Auguste "Slow Motion" (2015)

If ever a song could be described as a multilayered chillfest, it’s Auguste’s “Slow Motion”. This brooding track hits all the right notes as it carries you along, with dual female vocals hovering over a steady electronic beat. It’s difficult to do this piece justice with words, so do yourself a favour and give it a listen here:

Single of the Day: Birds of Tokyo "I’d Go With You Anywhere" (2015)

Birds of Tokyo’s sound has shifted a long way over the last five or so years, but we can’t be sad that they’re taking a more pop-oriented direction when it’s as perfectly created as their new single, “I’d Go With You Anywhere”. There’s no sign on this track featuring on a forthcoming album, but instead will feature on a compilation release, which is set to be fully announced in the coming few weeks. Check out the new single here:

Music Video of the Day: SayWeCanFly "Darling" (2015)

‘Mid 2000s angsty, but not too angsty’ is probably the best way to describe “Darling”, the title track from acoustic soloist SayWeCanFly’s upcoming EP. “Darling” is the sort of track that could take Tumblr by storm and really that’s not a bad thing – it’s genuinely catchy, will be relatable to many, and it’s not something we’ve heard a whole lot of before. Check it out here:

Exclusive Music Video Premiere: FALLS "Let in the Light" (2015)

Acoustic folk rock couple Falls have gently been making a name for themselves over the past few years. Now having toured with the likes of The Lumineers, Passenger and Of Monsters and Men, Falls are definitely on the road to success. Today, we're proud to premiere the music video of their track "Let in The Light". Click through to watch!

Music Video of the Day: Northeast Party House: "Perfect Lines" (2015)

Not going to lie - I’m pretty sure this video was shot with a camera attached to a clothesline... Not that that’s a problem, because “Perfect Lines”, the latest track from Northeast Party House totally fits that aesthetic. The backyard shoot suits the Melbournians’ backyard style of rock perfectly, and you can see it for yourself here:
