Hi, welcome to my list. Sorry that’s it’s taken so long and that I’ve recycled some other stuff I’ve written. Also sorry I couldn’t muster up something more interesting to write about some of these great releases. Generally these lists are in no order, I’m sure I’ve missed something important but 2015 was a blur that has continued into 2016. Still, it’s an exciting blur. I’ve now been working ...

My Favourite Music of 2015 Royal Headache "High". My first few listens to this I thought it was an instant Australian classic. At the very least songs like Psychotic Episode and Down The Lane from their first album and High and Carolina off the new album should be  radio staples but aren't because of general lameness and it’s not 20 years old yet.  If you're gonna re-unite, make...

We've decided to dabble in Cassette Store day this year. We're stocking Australian releases only that fit into the vibe of the store and re-stocking stuff from distros like Distort. I know people find the concept a bit twee, but its a format we sell anyway that's affordable for bands and labels to produce so we felt a positive spin was required. It's fun, DIY and we're all about bringing people cl...
