Angus & Julia Stone
Life is Strange
Australia’s favourite siblings return with a surprise 2021 album drop in Life is Strange. And isn’t it just. Forced to abandon what would otherwise be a period of extensive touring for their respective solo projects, Angus & Julia button down to deliver us a rare and unexpected treat.
Jordan Rakei delivers hit after emotive hit with his four-track EP, Clouds. The New Zealand born and UK based songwriter/producer never misses a beat in this brief but deeply emotional journey of contemporary pop baladry.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
It’s been a busy twelve months for Australia’s dark prince. 2020s haunting performance from Alexander Palace in Idiot Prayer, 2021s savage explorations with longtime collaborator Warren Elis in Carnage, and now the first single Vortex from an upcoming 7LP boxset of Bad Seeds B-Sides & Rarities. We can’t get enough.
