Hockey Dad – Running Out

#NewMusic from Windang, Australia

At last we have another album from Hockey Dad, ‘Blend Inn’. Their steady rise since their early releases back in 2013 have taken this duo to a point of maturity in their sound. A process that has taken place without them loosing a shred of the untamed power and energy they displayed right straight off the bat. ‘Running Out’ had us from the first guitar growl to the perfectly synchronised final chord and cymbal. Take the time to listen to the album’s full glory, you shall not be let down.

Thando – Numb (feat. Remi)

#NewMusic from Melbourne, Australia

The USA and Australia are neck and neck for representation on DnV this month. Well, Australia just took the lead thanks to this absolute vibe from songstress Thando. The vocal is stuffed full of soul waiting to boil over, and boy does it erupt when that chorus hits. Oh my! Remi delivers a tight guest appearance to boot. Very nice. If you find yourself on the mighty island of Aus in the next few months make sure you check this gal on tour.

JVLY – Ache

#NewMusic from Newcastle, Australia

We’ve had our ears tuned to JVLY‘s interstellar sonic sound since first clocking his productions late last year. There’s now a full EP to enjoy. Title track ‘Ache’ has a hugely spacious, resonant beat. The vocals come and go from front to back as you’re swept through this Aussie producers world of music.

Emerson Leif x Golden Vessel – Hesitate

#NewMusic from Brisbane, Australia

The slow soft build and periodic heart beat monitor blip creates a thoughtful backdrop to this delicately balanced offering from Emerson Leif alongside Golden Vessel. The vocal stands strong above the soundscape as it grows through the track, always leading the way, just the way it should.

Mastah Melo – darth.

#NewMusic from Adelaide, Australia x Cologne, Germany

If you haven’t noticed yet, the spoken word scene is riding high in 2018. The beats on offer are lively, well crafted and sit tight beneath the crystal clear rhymes being served up. We’ve been hunting outside our normal hunting grounds recently and found this gem from Australia. Mastah Melo’s accent sneaks through in his flow but doesn’t distract one ounce from the story he lays out on ‘darth.’. We’ll be keeping an eye out for more from him and his camp this year. Strong production from HulkHodn out of Cologne too.
