Raz Simone – Sometimes I Don’t

Usually I post a child-friendly mixture of electro-pop, indie and folk, and sometimes I don’t. Last year Seattle-based duo Sam Lachow and Raz Simone dropped the ‘5 Good Reasons’ EP to an expectant fanbase, receiving widespread acclaim for the quality of work and racking up nearly 15,000 downloads. Fast forward six months and Raz has […]

Needing Cherie – Peter Rabbit

It’s been exactly a week since your last injection of Australian poppy goodness and I’m not cruel enough to make you wait any longer. Next month will see Dunsborough-based folky five-piece Needing Cherie release their second EP. In anticipation the former Western Australian Music Song of the Year winners showcased the track ‘Peter Rabbit’ through […]

Rajan Chelliah – Amy

Much like their previous releases, OCD have […]

After a wild celebration that included Diet Pepsi and Jacob’s […]

The Pierce Brothers – The Anchor

Another Monday morning means another relaxing track to help those of you who face a long week ahead. Siblings Jack and Patrick a.k.a The Pierce Brothers, are an Australian indie-folk duo who are set to release their new EP ‘Blind Boys Run’ next week. The Melbourne-based outfit are hot property in regards to the Australian […]

Dune Rats – Red Light, Green Light

It’s been a long time coming but today’s track is the first mention of garage rock or surf rock that there has ever been on Slumped. I’m usually one of those music fans that finds the garage-rock genre quite abrasive but that can’t be said for Dune Rats’ marvellous ‘Red Light, Green Light’. The Brisbane […]
