Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.
Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.

Melbourne-based Dylan Hill shows a great deal of heart in his productions, with the same mellowing touch of say, Leaks or even Holy Other.
The Fall blends recorded guitar with some fluttery electronic instrumentation, some soft-to the touch percussive samples and delicate vocals- a style that’s rapidly developing it’s own little place in the greater scheme of electronic music through the likes of Oliver Tank, the aforementioned Leaks and many more.

Fuck the Radio Collective‘s Sub Dapper has an EP on the way. About a week ago he dropped this to tide us over while we wait.
Girls soothes on the surface, but intrigues with intricate glitching and constant progressive evolution. Not one part of this track is boring. It gets my BRILLIANT tag (the first track of the year to do so!)
For more brilliance, check out last year’s tape.

Eleven groovy beats by Sydney producer Spoonty have made their way onto bandcamp for a new release called Feels. Quite a well-polished production overall, this is no mere collection of rough ‘n raw beats with none of the tracks falling below three minutes; these are all fully fleshed out grooves to get down to.
Something about this album reminds me of the style of Bonobo, which can never be a bad thing. Heaps sings out with immaculate vocal chops while Forest makes use of a smoothly carved up flute. Quite frankly, the samples fit perfect like honey and lemon- while the beats are as smooth as Morgan Freeman’s voice after a nice honey and lemon tea. The whole thing is musically delicious experience.

An exciting all-ages show is hard to come by. I don’t say this to complain about today’s tasteless youth (although the existence of One Direction proves that there is indeed an abundance of that), I say this because it was not very long ago that I too was an under-age music fan, desperately craving an event I could legally go to without some over-priced flavour of the month pop-headliner (whatever happened to Wynter Gordon?).
Brisbane-based indie-folk artist Wafia is being joined by Fuck the Radio favourite Japanese Wallpaper on the Melbourne leg of her short tour at 1000 pound Bend this Sunday and everyone (young and old) is invited.
If you are in Melbourne, why not go grab a beer/juice and kick back to some tunes in our extended summer.
