Mac Miller – Here We Go
Mac Miller’s cult adored 2014 mixtape, Faces has today been re-released on streaming services and as a limited vinyl release.

FELIVAND – Where Were You
Brisbane/Meanjin-based singer, songwriter and producer, FELIVAND, today shares her new single “Where Were You”. The track is a warm, soul-driven piece, one that elevates FELIVAND’s already established sound to a new, glossy level. It’s equal parts uplifting as it is reflective, as the artist reflects on the feeling of being let down by an individual. 

Winston Surfshirt – Complicated (feat. Young Franco)
Winston Surfshirt today return to share their newest feel good bop, “Complicated” feat. Young Franco. The track perfectly moulds together the two sounds of the respective artists, creating a perfect track as Australia enters the warmer months. A signature Franco bass line and warm chords sit below Winston’s signature falsetto. 

Trophie – Ellie
Eora based pop artist Trophie has today shared their new single, ‘Ellie’. The track details a negative relationship that’s gone sour, a familiar part of life for almost every human. Once again, Trophie delivers an incredible sonic texture, one that features sharp, stabby hyperreal production with her shadowy, euphoric vocals. 

RISSA – I Know Better
Soul Queen RISSA returns with new single, ‘I Know Better’. The track continues her reputation for sharp, bright soulful R&B. The track is perfectly positioned for days context, as it produces an unstoppable positive energy, and allows the listener to peacefully move beyond the emotional rollercoaster of the last couple of months. 

serpentwithfeet – Down Nuh River
Alongside the release of his new single, ‘Down Nuh River’, LA Based serpent with feat has announced the follow up to his 2021 record, ‘DEACON’ in the form of upcoming companion EP, DEACON’S GROVE’, out on November 5th.

Hiatus Kaiyote – Canopic Jar
Twice Grammy-nominated band Hiatus Kaiyote shares a new song, “Canopic Jar”. The single marks the first music released from the band since their release of Mood Valiant in June.

Baker Boy has released his debut album, ‘Gela’. To mark this massive milestone, The Fresh Prince of Arnhem Land has dropped a powerful new video for latest single ‘Survive’, featuring legendary Uncle Jack Charles, a proud Boon Wurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Woiwurrung and Yorta Yorta man.
