Velociraptor – Riot
Riot is the new track from Brisbane 12 piece Velociraptor. It’s a fun rock and roll piece that continues on from last years summer hit Cynthia. Watch the film clip as well, a clever Scott Pilgrim inspired action sequence featuring their character Cynthia from earlier videos.
Pigeon – Oh Hebe
Also from Brisbane, electro-rockers Pigeon have released a new single from their upcoming EP, due in October. They are due to support Van She in their upcoming Brisbane shows, and will undergo a national tour in August
The Smith Street Band – I Want Friends
To Melbourne now and the new single from The Smith Street Band. A quintessential Australian punk track with vicious vocals.
Jackson Firebird – Cock Rockin’
The story of Jackson Firebird has gone international, after Lady Gaga arrogantly refused to share a stage with the Mildura act at Cherry Bar last week. I’ll admit I hadn’t listened to them until this incident, but Cock Rockin’ is a balls-out blues rock track. The clip is pretty cool too.
Tame Impala – Apocalypse Dreams
Saving the biggest for last, Tame Impala have released the first track from their upcoming album Lonerism. If Apocalypse Dreams is any indication to the quality of Lonerism, it is going to be a ripper.
