As we get into the final month of 2023 the amazing new music does not let up, from both home and abroad.

This week sees the release of YASMIN, the debut album from Tanzanian/Australian singer, songwriter, and guitarist Malaika Mfalme. Recorded at Offbeat Collective in Eora/Sydney, engineered by Zheng Lin and mixed by Drew BissetIt’s an immersive indie-folk experience that is lyrically themed on the human condition and confronting personal challenges. A heartfelt record guided by a strong acoustic guitar, piano and vocal performance. A fine record from a seriously talented new independent artist.

Local dynamos Haiku Hands are back with their second full-length record in the form of Pleasure Beast. It’s a highly engagingdive through  electro-pop that shifts rapidly between smoother RnB tones and high energy dance cuts, while exploring themes of body positivity, self-care and coping with modern society.

Today also sees the release of “missing-piece” archival material from none other than Ed Kuepper. Mr. Mirakle was originally intended as a companion album to 1996’s Frontierland, only to be inexplicably shelved at the time. It’s a brilliant spaced out album from the founding member of The Saints and Laughing Clowns, with a broad sound-palette that is both haunting and intimate, and out now on Prince Melon Records.


Further afield Kill! Kill! is the debut album from Brooklyn quartet Kill Frida. Fans of ESG and The Slits will be right at home with this one, as it’s loaded with fuzzed out and gritty garage and punk cuts that evoke comparisons to some of the best of New York post-punk and no-wave greats. Out now on Get Better Records.

This week also sees the release of the first single in several ears from Ngiyaampa/Bourke-based hip hop collective B-Town Warriors, with B-Town Kingsa hometown homage and a deftly made one at that.
Sydney DIY group (and former 2SER Feature album artists) Sachet are back with their first single in about three years, the incredibly catchy Crushing Whims. It’s an endearing and somewhat distressed love song about night bike rides, as well as a first taste of their next EP, The Seeing Machine, which is out early next year. Top tune!
Also keep an ear out for some wild psych funk from esteemed producer Sven Wunder on PianoPiano records, as well as left-field late night weirdness from Naarm’s Hooper Crescent, and much more. Scan the list at the top and hope you enjoy the sounds coming through your speakers on 107.3!
