Tree – Warrior by Chris

Tree‘s music sits at the helm of a collaborative creative effort which also encompasses visual artists. Warrior comes from the upcoming (and much anticipated) album Splitting Branches, and contains a mish-mash of found-sounds including breaking-eggs, toasters and scissors, as well as a neat 8-bit style Gameboy solo.

Despite the typically non-musical sources of sound, Warrior still holds it’s own as a BRILLIANT (that’s right… it’s getting tagged as  BRILLIANT) lo-fi synth-pop piece that’ll keep you coming back. Dreamy but not sleepy, upbeat but not twee, artistic but not pompous, Warrior‘s quality is accessibility through balance. Enough said; you need to listen:

Flash Forest – One Night by Chris

I’ve been in bed all day coughing up my lungs surrounded by used tissues and bowls of hot soup. But Flash Forest to the rescue! One of my favourite local producers by far, I’ve been secretly saving his music for a little while now (although you may have noticed his appearence in the Fuck Melody Mixtape), waiting for the perfect moment to spring it on you.

One Night is that perfect moment, uploaded to Soundcloud just 10 minutes ago (at the time of writing), this is chilled-out trip-hop at it’s best. Fans of Thrupence and Polographia (both are also talented Aussie producers) will dig, and Oliver Tank fans might want to take a squizz at Flash Forest‘s remix of What Have I Become, which brings the mellow romantic sounds of Tank into a more upbeat (even danceable) arena.

But enough floundering around dropping the names of other Aussies, Flash Forest has truly hit a league of his own with One Night, which is why he’s the second artist this year to be inducted in to my Fuck the Radio Brilliance hall of fame. If you are a fan of good music, I insist you check all his stuff out (most of it he is giving away for free!):

Chrome Sparks – Still Sleeping (feat. Steffaloo) by Chris

THE FIRST TRACK TO EARN A BRILLIANCE TAG THIS YEAR!

Chrome Sparks is a USA- based artist who puts out neat music which falls somewhere in the ‘electronic-pop’ area. A wonderfull collaboration featuring the vocal talents of LA-based Steffaloo brought us Still Sleeping sometime around October last year, and it’s a fun track all-round.

Despite a focus on lo-fi folk, Steffaloo‘s voice is accustomed to geting the electronic remix treatment- and it’s a matchmade in heaven when combined with Chrome Sparks‘ dreamy production work. Overall, the track is upbeat enough to happily sway to, but not quite enough to get you embarrassing yourself all sweaty on the dance floor- although I speak for myself; I’m sure after a few too many guava shots you could find hordes of tie-dye clad and glow-stick equipped ravers moving their hands and their butts in a bizarre motion that could be considered dancing along to this great track. Check it:
