Art vs Science – Create/Destroy

Having worked their way from the Unearthed front page through to widespread critical acclaim, a slot supporting The Chemical Brothers and even a number two album, Art vs. Science are the poster boys for the Australian unsigned scene. It has now been over four years since the Sydney three-piece dubbed ‘The Australian Daft Punk’ were […]

Pinch Hitter – Nine to Fine

Pinch Hitter is an amalgamation of two nomadic Sydneysiders whose love for music has seen their influence take various forms over the years. Having finally taken breaks from their respective musical commitments, former ‘Animal Shapes’ drummer Nick Van Breda and ‘Milhouse’ bassist Dave Drayton delivered their much discussed collaborative project in March 2013 under the […]

Kim Churchill – Window to the Sky

Having been named Australia’s Youth Folk Artist of the Year, accompanied Billy Bragg on his US tour and played festivals like SXSW, the name Kim Churchill won’t be new to everyone. His easy-listening brand of bluesy-folk has now starred in three full-length releases and his latest track ‘Window to the Sky’ looks likely to be […]

White With One – Clinical Precision

With the nights drawing in and the weather getting progressively worse I think it’s time we make a conscious decision to listen to some uplifting music in an attempt to cover the winter blues in tinsel and call it festive. If you shut your eyes and imagine ‘Of Monsters and Men’ being fronted by German […]

We’re Not Alone – Louis London

‘Louis London’ are certainly a favourite here at Slumped because not only do they produce exceptional music, but they are also genuinely lovely blokes. Having initially covered their single ‘Hardly Hear You’ at the end of last year, front-man Ed Saloman was nice enough to give Slumped his time to discuss the Australian music scene […]

Pro Vita – Bent

Having already touched on the wonderful world of Australian surf-pop via March’s ‘Dune Rats’ review, today we delve a little deeper and paddle out into the waters of Queensland outfit ‘Pro Vita’. The ‘self managed and home recorded’ Indie foursome may be a little rough around the edges but like a greasy kebab or ripped […]

Jordan Butler – Bear Markets and Bull

About 7 months ago, back when I was broke and unemployed, Jordan Butler delivered an irrisistable mix of poetry and hip-hop in the form of ‘Makeshift Knives’. Fastforward to a time of afleuence and positivity, where, incredibly,  I have no employer and no cash, and Butler has unloaded another round of vocal ammunition in our […]

Timothy James Bowen – The Beggar

Slightly different to my usual electro/pop stuff, today’s track is a bluesy-folk number from the very talented Timothy James Bowen. An Australian that is both easy on the eyes and the ears, Timothy James Bowen has recently been riding high in the Triple J roots charts and for good reason. His brand of earthy folk […]

When We Were Small – Untied

Because we can’t all exude the happiness of an American news anchor day-in, day-out, today’s track is something a little more sombre than usual. Feel free to cry away all those missed opportunities and broken dreams as you listen, I know I did. When We Were Small are an earthy Indie-pop act from the little […]

GRRL PAL – Amazon

Today’s track not only remains loyal to the recent CAPITALISATION trend on Slumped but also delivers a cool and calm brand of dreamy synth-pop that encapsulates the state of heat induced delirium that we’re all currently experiencing. GRRL PAL are a male/female duo from the Southern Hemisphere, who, like many of Slumped’s artists, can be […]
