Eves The Behavior - Eves The Behavior
Illustrious Brisbane artist Hannah Karydas' debut EP is four tracks of brooding yet eloquent experimental pop
Prince Royce - Double Vision
The Latin American pop sensation makes a play at world wide pop domination, calling on big guns like Pitbull, J-Lo, Tyga, Kid Ink and Snoop Dogg to collaborate.
We Came As Romans - We Came As Romans
The latest self titled album from the Detroit metalcore 6 piece sees the band take on a mature, more melodic sound.
Ducktails - St Catherine
Fifth album of psychedelic pop from Real Estate's Matt Mondanile. Delicate, subtle and polished with summery guitar grooves.
Chris Staples - Cheap Shades
Follow up EP to the Washington-based artist's widely acclaimed debut album. Quiet, lulling and lovely.
Sereph - Mas Ysa
Multi-instrumentalist Thomas Arsenault follows up his debut EP LP with more anthemic synth-pop.
Field Music - Music For Drifters
The fifth album from Sunderland brothers David and Peter Brewis is the soundtrack to a fishing documentary by Scottish filmmaker John Grierson
