Alta – Wash it Down by Chris

Our friends ALTA seem to blow minds with every release.

It’s been a year since Spazzkid released Desire. The album plays like Bibio soaked in chillwave, and while it’s a little different to what we normally post around here, its always good to treat your ears to some pop-ish music once and awhile.



Chet Faker – Melt feat. Kilo Kish by Chris

This is going to be all over the blogosphere but how could I resist. Local superstar Chet Faker (who skyrocketed to stardom with his amazing cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity) teaming up with the totally dope Kilo Kish (check out K+ if you missed the boat on her).

I caught a bit of Chet Faker‘s set at Splendour in the Grass (major Aussie music festival) and his fan-base ranged from drunk teens to groovy middle-aged couples. A testament to the brilliant accessibility of his music.

One of my favourite local young Melbourne artists, Wintercoats released the soothing EP Heartful in April as a ‘name your price’ download via Bandcamp.

Wintercoats will be performing at the Yes Please 2nd Birthday Party happening in Melbourne on July 18 at The Worker’s Club with live sets in the band room from artists on the Yes Please artists I’lls, Fishing, Wintercoats, Guerre and The Townhouses. Plus DJ sets in the front bar from Oscar Key Sung, Andras Fox, Simon Winkler, Tim Shiel and Adam Christou.



Willow Beats – Alchemy EP by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective home boys Willow Beats have been super busy, returning from a sold-out national tour to support the release of their second EP (below).

I had a quick exchange with Narayana earlier,

There are some tracks on the EP that I started a year ago, some that came together in the last few weeks!
We tried much more experimenting with this EP. There are a-lot more recorded samples and things like the water drops in Elemental (recorded in my bath tub). A-lot more attention was paid to the individual sounds as well. I wanted every small aspect to be as good as I could make it.
The tour was sold out which was incredible! It was amazing to see the amount of support we have! You don’t really realise from Facebook etc but when you see support in numbers its incredible.



Willow Beats – Alchemy preview by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective artists Willow Beats have just dropped a preview video for their new single Alchemy to be released on the 11th of March.

If you live in Melbourne you can catch them live throughout March as they play through their Workers Club residency, with support from Allday and other FTR Collective artists ColourwavesAlta and Yosemite.

Sir Deckster – Rewind Me Up (Feat. Mari Posa) by Chris
January 17, 2013, 12:30 PM

I’ve had this one for a-while, but I have to share, because Brussels-based Sir Deckster is a really fantastic find. With a solid musical fusion of various elements- there’s a hint of The XX, perhaps a little SBTRKT and everything in-between. Rewind Me Up features some smooth jazzy vocals which mesh very well with the intricate percussion and fluttery ambiance.
