ft. Noa May, Schaus, San Mei, Betty & Oswald and The Courtneys

Jarryd2

Once again musicians the world over have proven those dolts who think ‘women can’t rock’ are idiots. Noa May makes a Pixies classic her own, Schaus takes us through the weird and wonderful, San Mei gets a little heavier, much to our joy. Betty & Oswald sound like they are having a blast while The Courtneys are a welcome addition to Canada’s developing musical scene.

Track: Hey

Based In: Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

Flavours Of: Tom Waits / Kimbra

Anytime someone covers a beloved track, it can be pretty controversial but Noa May balances paying homage to the Pixies while making ‘Hey‘ completely her own. Muddy guitar, swampy blues percussion and May’s seductive voice all intertwine for a perfect romp.

Track: Galileo’s Song

Based In: USA

Flavours Of:  Anohni

Galileo’s Song‘ certainly does not seek to comfort the listener. Schaus constantly pulls the rug out from you as you begin to think you have got a hold of the rhythm. Along with a film clip that can only be called a sim’s bad acid trip, ‘Galileo’s Song‘ is a challenging piece of art well worth investing in.

Track: Rewind

Based In: Gold CoastAus

Flavours Of: Ladyhawke / BORNS

Simple, fuzzy blues sensibilities with a balanced production value that gets the heart of  Emily Hamilton’s strengths. ‘Rewind’ is a track to blast during the summer road trips and feel the potential in every moment.

Weaning Lamb: Betty & Oswald

Track: Stuck In The City

Based In: Sydney, Aus

Flavours Of: Client Liaison 

The weird and wonderful world of the 80’s aesthetic revival blends perfectly with ‘Stuck In The City’s psychedelic pop. This little gem incorporates the telltale production effects to make you feel like you’re listening to a soundtrack from one of the 80’s notoriously bizarre infotainment videos. Great fun while jam packed with musical and narrative talent.

Track: Silver Velvet

Based In: Vancouver, Canada

Flavours Of: Major Leagues

Ever the fan of sunny guitar rhythms, 90’s nostalgia driven sensibilities (we all have our vices) and just letting music be light hearted fun from time to time. The CourtneysSilver Velvet’ is an infectious, guitar slinging, indi pop tune for your weekend.
