LA pop rockers, Bleached have continued to wow audiences on their ongoing tour of Australia in promotion of their second album, Welcome the Worms. This is the first time that the trio: singer, Jennifer, lead guitarist, Jessie and bassist, Micayla have crossed our shores and hit up Melbourne’s renowned Northcote Social Club on the 30th of May.
A Bourke Street Mall busker, Tash Sultana has truly taken the world by storm. She is currently on a massive Australian tour (after an eventful luggage mishandling incident that made global news), and is set to become a major name in Australian music. So for those of you who have not seen her fantastically engaging and charismatic sets in Bourke Street, I strongly suggest you check out her EP Notion.
I’m coming over for tea. Get the placemats ready, wipe down the walls, lay out the bats. So when they say, ‘this is why we can’t have nice things’, it’s time to thrash! Read more …
On this episode of the drop, there is a tribute to Loki and Chairman Carr (Liesl from ‘The Sound of Music’) along with music you can tap your feet to. Enjoy!

This Episode features songs that best describes personalities and individuals at different stages in Life. We had listeners who suggested that some of these songs actually speaks a lot about themselves at a point in their lives and some of the songs also summarises their personality traits.
Without getting to know our listeners personally, how easy is it for you to figure why a song was chosen.
Hint: it could be the lyrics or title.
I don’t know what Australian musicians have been up to recently, but it seems every second artist is changing their stage name. Even the Melburnian jazz scene has gotten into the mix of this “evolution” la-di-da, with a fusion quintet that came to my attention earlier this year pulling a “Prince” manoeuvre, to change their name from ‘Pilot’ to the increasingly vibrant, but also confusing ‘Neon City Pilot’. But despite all the befuddlement that comes with changing a name, the group has just launched another incredible release, with their debut album Ghost Wings.

This Episode appreciates the uniqueness of songs written in other languages. We compiled a list of songs in Languages other than English. It was fun because we thought that even if we could not understand what the songs meant, we were able to connect to it in some kind of way.
This reveals that Music can reach out to people no matter the language or culture.
I hope you enjoy the list of songs.
The next time you’re at the supermarket, take my friendly advice and you’ll NEVER PAY FULL PRICE AGAIN! Also this show contains Glam Metal so go get yourself tested… Read more …
The name has been prominent in Australia’s independent electronic music scene for a while now, and from the moment they released their first single Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues in 2013, it has been well and truly evident that these guys are nothing like any other band out there. Characterised by strong beats, pulsing synths, catchy riffs and melodies, and vocalist Ben Woolner’s unique soul-tinged voice – at times powerful, at times light and husky, with a vocal range that jumps around between tenor to falsetto with seeming ease.
Despite having only released five singles prior to this year, three of these five have made Triple J Hottest 100 countdowns and the band has had no trouble selling out headline shows across the country and flooring crowds at music festivals such as Groovin’ the Moo.
It goes without saying then that the anticipation for an album has been around for a very, very long time; well before making one was even alluded to, yet alone actually announced. However, the excruciatingly long wait is finally over with today’s release of their long-awaited masterpiece: Internal. Read more …
I’ve been a Cat Empire fan since their hit ‘Hello’, and have loved their distinctive Australian take on ska and jazz. The Cat Empire have toured the world countless times, and their music is loved internationally for the band’s stupendous brass lines, keyboard finesse and thrifty use of vinyl scratching. Front-man Felix Riebl has been the mastermind behind the majority of the band’s success, with his charismatic performance style and intelligent song-writing.
But, following on from the band’s successful 2016 album Rising with the Sun, Felix has decided to go solo once more and release a second album. Paper Doors, released 2nd September 2016, may be short (totalling only 37 minutes), but certainly has a great variety of content. With guest artists including the likes of Emily Lubitz, Katy Steele and Martha Wainwright, it is certainly nice to hear a more intimate canvas for Felix to sing with.
The last time I had sex was in a graveyard. The show this week is hence dedicated to oversharing and a propensity to feel tired at University. Also I play some doom and stoner metal.
There was a young man from Bergen
Whose voice was kinda gurglin’
He started a band
never got tanned
then got stabbed 28 times and left outside his apartment.
So this is a black metal show. Also, I talk about Euronymous’ murder. This is why you always make sure that if session musicians you’re working with are crazy, you don’t meet up with them to discuss contract grievances.
