The end of another week means we treated to a list of fresh new tracks, compiled by our very own Tim “The Track Tracker” Lambert.
Flight Facilities, Arty Boy feat. Emma Louise
While Down To Earth remains on heavy rotation in the STACK office – and will forever – a new track from our favourite musical pilots is exactly what we needed. Featuring frequent collaborator Emma Louise Arty Boy is every bit nostalgic and futuristic at the same time as we have come to expect from Jimmy and Hugo. No news on a future release, although the boys have said they have ‘about 60’ songs in the works.
Jack River, Fools Gold
And the award for the most relevant song of 2017 goes to * drumroll * , you guessed it, Jack River. Fools Gold comes on the back of her impressive Highway Songs No.2 debut from last year.
The most impressive thing about this 21-year-old is how quickly she is changing the landscape of Australian music. Her latest project is the upcoming Electric Lady festival featuring Ali Barter, Alex Lahey, Bec Sandridge and more – Girls to the front has never been in safer hands.
Action Bronson, Let Me Breathe
New York chef and rapper Action Bronson has always been one of my favourite rappers; unique, funny and his flow is unmatched and his new track Let Me Breathe is all of those things.
If you haven’t seen either of his shows I highly recommend; F**K That’s Delicious is his cooking show or Ancient Aliens with Action Bronson on US cultural channel Viceland.
Stepson, Come With Me
In the latest edition of ‘I told you they were going to huge’ is Brisbane punks Stepson. While they have been kicking around for a little while, their new track Come With Me looks to be the catapult the four-piece into hardcore ascendancy. They remind me a bit of the seriously underrated Sienna Skies – it’s nice to write something about an Australian hardcore band that isn’t comparing them to The Amity Affliction or Parkway Drive. Well done to me, well done to Stepson.
For anyone who isn’t versed in the RnB tinged synth world of Martha Brown aka Banofee you will get an undoubtedly ‘Aussie Grimes’ vibe. The Melbourne songwriter has returned with her new tune Ripe – an electro-soaked dream.
