Dylan Hill – The Fall by Chris

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.

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!):

Here we are, the first post of 2012- going to Wintercoats from Melbourne, Australia.

Someone to Share My Life With is a cover of sorts- the original being the folky tune by Television Personalities of the same name; but Wintercoats has transformed the clanky electric guitar into the type of beautiful downtempo/chillwave that Aussies seem to be quite talented in producing. Fans of Oliver Tank will enjoy the sounds that Wintercoats have to offer- and on that note Wintercoats is Oliver‘s support act in Melbourne on the 20th for his EP launch party.

Give the track a download and be sure to check out their bandcamp page for several more tracks and an EP all being given away for free! 😀

Oliver Tank’s Dreams by Chris

A few posts back I posted Sydney-based chillwave artist Oliver Tank.

His debut EP Dreams is out as a digital download on bandcamp and iTunes, however there is a large push to get the release pressed onto vinyl. This is very expensive and is being funded by pre-orders of the album itself- so if you’d like to support amazing hard-working musicians and get a physical copy of the vinyl, I urge you to check out:


Oliver Tank has been on the up and up lately, getting his music featured in this very powerful (and popular) gay-rights video by Get Up! brought his music to a-lot more people.

Vinyl has been deemed ‘old-fashioned’ by many (any they are quite right), in-fact, my father was surprised they still release new things on vinyl. The truth is, there’s something magical about vinyl that a CD or MP3 file lacks- that is, that the grooves in the wax literally are  the physical manifestation of the music. It’s the closest thing we have to capturing sound into something you can hold in your hands. There are still Djs that work using vinyl exclusively, and there are many more (myself included… albeit my collection is pathetic) that collect their favourite songs/artists in vinyl records. They are rarities that you often cannot find anywhere else. In this case with Oliver Tank you can not only be involved in helping create the vinyl, but be an owner of one of the only 300 copies.
