Recorded at PBS Fm Studios, Melbourne, 3rd February 2016.

 

Jess Ribeiro’s career started as a three piece, featuring her long-term​ collaborator Rob Law in the group Jess Ribeiro and the Bone Collectors in the very under-represented​ city of Darwin. Their debut album My Little River won best country album at the 2013 AIR independent label awards. After an amicable creative split with Rob Law, Jess began working on her first solo record with legendary Australian musician, composer, songwriter, arranger Mick Harvey. Her album ‘Kill It Yourself’ was released in August 2015.

WAAX

Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Elephant, Brisbane, 25th January 2016.

Starting in 2013, WAAX have been pushing everyone out of their way with their raw, punk-infused​ brand of rock. They have rapidly become an act that’s known for their high energy live shows that is partly due to the fear instilled​ by their utterly terrifying and frenzied frontwoman Marie DeVita. In 2015, they released their debut EP Holy Sick and followed it up with an east coast tour that had everyone talking.

Recorded at The Standard on the 12th of February, 2014.

Caitlin Park writes and performs folktronica, taking folk and electro-acoustics to new heights with her abstract composition, sampling and film nostalgia. Releasing her debut album in 2011, MILK ANNUAL is a sprawling, intricate and heart-warming foray into the soundscapes of old films, audio books, spoken word, and minimalistic musical arrangement. For much of 2012, Caitlin travelled to New York and London and collected sounds which would appear on her critically lauded 2nd album, 2013’s The Sleeper, which was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.

Recorded at PBS Fm Studios, Melbourne, 2nd February 2016.

Starting in 2007 in MELBOURNE, Deaf Wish have been making flat out rock and roll noise that straddles the fine line between melody and chaos. Their intense sound is backed up by a ferocious live show that has seen them tour all over the world. The heart of Deaf Wish’s sound lies in their philosophy; Keep it loud and keep it simple. To further strengthen their rep as a hard hitting rock n roll group they have released one EP and one Album through legendary Seattle Label Sub Pop.

Deep Heat

Mastered by Paul Maybury
Recorded at PBS Fm Studios, Melbourne, 2nd February 2016.

Deep Heat began in 2010 with two bassists who wanted to play guitar, and a guitarist who wanted to play bass. Their frantic punk rock sound is topped off with three shouting vocalists that creates a kind of chaos that could cave the walls in at any moment while you shout along with them.

Bearhug
Bearhug1

Recorded by Hugh Fasher and Harvey O’Sullivan
Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Recorded at Newtown Social Club, Sydney on the 18th of September, 2014.

Known for their hazy, slacker indie-rock vibes, Sydney band, Bearhug has a knack for infusing a sometimes carefree, sometimes agitated but always nostalgic sound into their music. Driven by walls of guitar hooks, noodling melodies, and bare-bones drums that careen under laidback vocals, the band captures that “hair-in-the-face” adolescence spirit that aligns them to 90s stalwarts Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, and Screamfeeder.
