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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Slumped Mix Tape Three – Free Download

I know that near enough two weeks without an entry is close to unforgivable, so I shall do the best I can to redeem myself. Although it only seems like yesterday since SIAC2, May has been full to the brim with exciting and, more importantly, free music. To celebrate such a fine month, allow me […]

Rajan Chelliah – Amy

Usually I select my tracks from the vast sea of music websites, directories and blogs, but not today. I found Rajan taking the commendable step of peddling his own music through social media and unlike many like minded artists, it was worth a listen. ‘Amy’ is a gentle acoustic love song with an honest simplicity. […]

Slumped Mix Tape Two – Free Download

It’s been a long time coming (11 months to be precise) but today marks the momentous occasion of SIAC’s second mix tape. Basically a compilation of tracks from the past month or so which can be legally downloaded from various sources, all tidied up into one nice little bundle. Let’s all hope that these tracks […]

MØ – Pilgrim

Scandinavian music has come a long way from the days of ABBA and A-Ha. In recent years the region has been at the forefront of dance, electro, pop and folk, serving up a seemingly never-ending list of catchy, feel good music. Today’s artist MØ (AKA Karen Marie Ørsted) hails from the Danish capital Copenhagen and […]

Hailey Calvert – Walk In The Rain

It has dawned on me recently that Slumped tends to focus on the artistry of male singers and producers. There has been the odd post on Icona Pop or Loreen, but in the main I come across like a blogger who purposely ignores the talent of the female population. So for today’s track, I have […]

Brendan Benson – Cold Hands

Like a mangled love child created via a brutal ganbang involving a Seventies’ Brit band and Nineties’ American paino-rock artist, ‘Cold Hands’ limps from its gentle cradle into the very front of your brain, staying there for longer than you initially wanted. Having found chart success with Jack White’s Raconteurs, Brendan Benson has finally achieved […]

Slumped Mix Tape One – Free Download

I have finally reached the end of my first month as Slumped commissioner (took a while to settle upon that title) and in celebration I have crammed all the legal downloads featured this month and a few more proverbial cherries tossed upon the imaginary cake of happiness. Hopefully a few of you will take the […]
