Issue #13 Ft. Calan Mai (Gold Coast, Aus) SMILE (Melbourne, Aus) TheBritishIBM (London, UK) Over Sands (London, UK) Epsilona (Sacramento, CA)

WEANING LAMBS are back this week after another fortnight spent rummaging through well-over 60 plus new songs that were sent to us from artists all around the world, seeking out a little bit of Lamb loving.  Again, like each time we wean, we struggle to whittle it down to 5.  To those who sent your music through, please don’t forget about us on future music releases, we only can offer so much, but we love your music too.  So, this week we venture close to home right here in Melbourne city and then strike right through to the brilliance of London to deliver some outstanding music that we bet, you haven’t heard before.  Enjoy!

Many Australian singers of past and present have tried to rid of their accent as much as possible, in fear they may be banished into the ether of bad accent Australian music.  Well, since our beloved Courtney Barnett stood proud, many seem to follow.  This track by fellow ozzie Calan Mai shows all the signs of an accomplished artist both musically and lyrically.

Track Boundless Plains To Share

File Next To Joy Division, The KVB

Based In Melbourne, Australia

A raw and layered slice of drony-driving (made that one up) pop from this great new find, SMILE The song is about refugees and finding a new home and the title ‘Boundless Plains to Share’ has been taken from a lyric in the Australian national anthem.  We love the constant pulse of this track, its dark underlying beauty.
