SOME KIND OF ILLNESS – SOULS (SELF-RELEASED)

Atmospheric chamber pop music born out of the post-punk reveries of artists like Cocteau Twins, and Vini Reilly (Durutti Column) with elements of the Pink Floyd/The Alan Parsons Project songbook thrown in for good measure. Tracks like “The Other Side of Hate” and the title track will transport you into a shimmering world of sound and emotions. https://www.facebook.com/SomeKindofIllness/

JACUZZI BOYS – PING PONG (SELF-RELEASED)

Transcendent hooky poppy rock n roll is what Jacuzzi Boys are all about and we are ecstatic. This is one helluva fun good timey melodic rock album – y’know the kind that hip bands in the late 70s used to make in New York. Once “Lucky Blade” hits you between the eyes, there’s no going back. Fuck yeah! (In other words – highly recommended!) https://www.facebook.com/jacuzziboys/

pure-moods

PURE MOODS – S/T (DEAF AMBITIONS)

A bit of 80s indie pop (clean, jangly guitars, monotonous vox) and a bit of 90s slacker-rock (atonal melodies, disheveled performances) inform Melbourne pop-rockers Pure Mood’s agenda. Songwriting & arrangements might need further development but no issues with the righteous approach. A couple of rockier numbers should do the trick. https://www.facebook.com/puremoodsmusic/

soft-lions

SOFT LIONS – XOXO (VELVET BLUE MUSIC)

There’s a strong 90s alt-rock vibe in Soft Lion’s XOXO EP that recalls the likes of The Breeders, Throwing Muses and Belly. Singer/guitarist Megan Liscomb cuts loose with abandon with salty vigour as the rhythm section of Ana Ramundo and Jon Bonser provide the steady foundations for visceral emo-rock. But with loads of pop tunes, of course! https://www.facebook.com/softlionsband
