RÜFÜS (or RÜFÜS DU SOL as they are known in North America) continually deliver fantastic music. And their latest single - the second to be taken from their upcoming record Bloom - "Like An Animal" is no exception.

Single of the Day: Mansionair "Speak Easy" (2015)

With a support slot for Alt J’s national tour, and a packed out set at Splendour, Mansionair have achieved a lot before even releasing an album. They’ve just treated us to some new music however, the track "Speak Easy”. The track was co-produced by Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Tim Finn, John Butler Trio), and is an atmospheric track packed with lush guitars and synths. Give it a listen here:

Music Video of the Day: World’s End Press “Tall Stories” (2015)

World’s End Press' signature of blending live instrumentation with electronic music still holds strong in their latest release “Tall Stories”. Lifted off their upcoming EP, the video for “Tall Stories” is a visually stunning multi-disciplsinerary piece, and certainly makes us keen for the new music to come from World’s End Press. Check out the new single here:

Music Video of the Day: Peking Duk "Say My Name" (2015)

Canberra's Peking Duk regularly deliver some pretty great content - both in music and video form. Their latest video for "Say My Name" (featuring Benjamin Joseph) may just take the cake, however. The Anthony Chirco directed video is hilarious and features Matt McGorry of Orange Is The New Black and How To Get Away With Murder. Adam from the duo, as well as Matt himself had a few words to say about our Music Video of the day:

Single of the Day: Sable Feat. Floria "Like You (Girl)" (2015)

Now that Perth producer has gotten his debut EP URL LUV out to the public, it's time for him to release another single from the 5-track project. "Like You (Girl)" has the same hyperactive approach the young producer has a knack for, but this time he balances it out with a measured blend of UK garage and melodic R&B, assisted by smooth crooner Floria. It's his personal favourite off the EP, and frankly, it's ours too.

Single of the Day: Hedge Fund "Boyfriend" (2015)

Indie-rock Sydneysiders Hedge Fund channel classic artists Devo and The Cure in their latest track “Boyfriend”, leading to a solid three and a half minutes of honest fun that show just how great fast-paced Aussie music can be. Check it out here:

Music Video of the Day: Alison Wonderland "Games" (2015)

“Games” is the fourth single from home grown DJ/Producer Alison Wonderland’s debut album Run, and it would be fair to say the video lives up to the sweet electronica audio. Back flips: check. Table flips: check. One shot take: check.

Single of the Day: Ollie English "I Know You're Gonna Leave" (2015)

Okay, so this kid is 19 years old and good. Seriously good. “I Know You’re Gonna Leave” comes from Adelaidean Ollie English who may well be Australia’s answer to Hozier, Bon Iver, and everything in between. Get a taste for this talented youngster here:

Music Video of the Day: Dan Kelly "Never Stop The Rot" (2015)

Green screen is one of those things that when it’s bad, it’s really bad. When it’s deliberately bad, though? That’s when it’s great. Venturing between outback highways and the cosmos; seaside rocks and the Great Pyramids of Giza, Dan Kelly takes us on one hell of a journey for his catchy indie-rock track "Never Stop The Rot". It's the first track to be taken from his upcoming record Leisure Panic. Check it out here:

Single of the Day: Isaac Cavallaro ft Simon Svoboda “My Darling” (2015)

When Isaac Cavallaro isn’t playing drums for the Kite String Tangle, he’s making his own style of electronic music. Featuring vocals from Simon Svoboda, the new track is reminiscent of a more danceable Tycho. With a spot on the Red Deer Festival lineup alongside Andy Bull, Isaac’s upcoming shows are set to be pretty huge. Check out “My Darling” here:
