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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

AOSOON – Under

If you, like me, have been looking to relive those teenage years spent crying to Snow Patrol and watching Notting Hill, look no further, we have a saviour. AOSOON or ‘A Lot Of Something Out Of Nothing’ is the stage name of the obscenely talented Marisa Hylton and Manny Folorunso – a London duo who’s […]

The Middle Names – Full Friends

As Slumped reaches 100 posts, changes domain and still boasts fewer hits than the ‘Cheeky Girls’, I think it’s time to ask the question; If something is broken, then why bother fixing it? In my mind there can be nothing wrong with the mixture of great music and free downloads, therefore I will continue to […]
