10 years on from their breakthrough album, Melbourne duo HTKR have released their fourth record ‘Venus In Leo’, and it’s as experimental and brooding as ever. With intimate vocals from singer Jonnine Standish paired with complimentary guitar melodies and production from Nigel Yang, the duo’s chemistry is superb, their sound is hypnotic and reflective.
Sleater Kinney have always sparked conversations, and their latest album ‘The Center Won’t Hold’ is no exception. With the addition of Annie Clark (a.k.a St Vincent) on production, the group have continued to excel in making music with meaningful stories, scathing lyrics and blistering rock elements. 25 years together and they’ve still got it.
And Cumbria raised, London-based artist Bryony Jarman-Pinto has released her debut ‘Cage and Aviary’. Featuring smooth and soulful vocals, jazzy instrumentation, intricate self-harmonising and infectious melody lines. Written over three years, the album is a fusion of Afro-pop, jazz, soul and r&b and out on the reputable Tru Thoughts Records.
