1/2/3/4 — #222 — With Reverie

It’s been wonderful to witness the blossoming of Sydney’s Jessica as a songwriter and vocalist over the last few years, first as half of folk-goth duo, Jep and Dep and subsequently with her solo albums. She returns with her second, With Reverie, an exploration into daydreams, thoughts, mind-trips, wonderings and introspections. Highly Recommended. Plus Rozi Plain, Pozi, Tōth and more!

If you are in dire need of blissful electronic meditations, then I highly recommend you lose yourself in the fantastic compositions of Oxherding, aka Fitz Hartwig. Fitz lives in Saint Louis, enjoys napping, and operates the wonderful Distant Bloom label. He suggests listening to these sounds with a clear mind and an open heart.

Quiet Space — #194 — Megan Alice Clune

Megan Alice Clune is a musician, composer and artist based in Eora (Sydney). Her recent release, If You Do, became an album for solo voice and an ensemble of technologies. An album about contorting the body (voice) through time (rhythm, pulse), repetition and form. The work is nostalgic for past futures: wishing for the technological optimism of the late 70’s and early 80’s.

1/2/3/4 — #210 — Tell You Straight

Melbourne’s Ayleen O’Hanlon is back with a bold new single, Straight. She’s been a very active member of the alt-country/folk scene, released a cracking album in 2015 (Blend and Spill), but a double-dose of heartbreak, burnout and a pandemic forced her to stop and re-evaluate her direction. Her sound has a darker pop twist and is highly recommended. She’s just one of the strong women making music in this episode with brilliant new tracks from Mel Parsons, Piper Butcher and Caroline Marie Brooks.
