K Bay, the latest album from Virginia indie rock producer Matthew E White, buzzes with the energy of a weekend-long house party. Written and recorded after getting married, this glam rock record brims with a humour and joy that you hear in the band’s musicianship – sometimes literally, as cheers and laughter often open and close tracks. A riotous celebration of life and love, K Bay is White’s best record yet.
Amyl & the Sniffers aren’t interested in reinventing punk music, but there’s an excitement and power to their music that sounds undeniably fresh and vital. Comfort to Me, their second album, is an furious and feminist punk album about getting magotted and finding love in the pub. The riffs are huge, the vocals are loud, and the mullets are long – this is Australian punk rock at its best.
After making her name as the lead singer of Melbourne’s Bombay Royale, Parvyn has released her debut album Sa. Working with producers Joelistics and Max Dowling, Parvyn mixes traditional Sikh music with trip-hop beats and R&B melodies, creating a pop sound that evokes the eclecticism of ’90s Massive Attack and ’00s Timbaland. A truly exciting and innovative work.
