Sydney indie outfit Shrapnel started as the bedroom project of Sam Wilkinson (Day Ravies, Mope City, Beef Jerk) but soon morphed into a full band and are back with a stunning new track from their soon to be released album Alasitas on Tenth Court that splits the difference between pastoral psych folk and beguiling pop along the lines of Look Blue Go Purple.

Dark Tea, the solo project of LA-based Gary Canino and he continues to follow the theme on previous releases with his amazing new self-titled record.

Highly recommended!

What emerges is a gorgeous modern folk record. We also feature excellent tracks from Coda Chroma, Fog Lake, Francine Odysseys and much more.
