Miiesha - War
Miiesha has today revealed the release of her Mirrors EP, which joins the already released Smoke EP, combining for a gorgeous double body of work which acts as the perfect introduction to her world.

Royel Otis  - Bull Breed
Sydney/Eora based rising stars Royel Otis have today announced their sophomore EP, Bar ‘N Grill is set for release on the 29th of July. Alongside the announcement they’ve shared their latest single and video Bull Bread. The single is another slice of gorgeous, guitar led indie that features upbeat percussion and lovely chords.

Meanjin/Brisbane based artist FELIVAND has today announced her forthcoming debut album, Ties will release via Sweat It Out on August 5th. To celebrate the news she's unveiled newest single Not My Way alongside Australian tour dates. The track showcases a grittier side of her artistry, with a thudding melody underpinning brass vocals that reflect on forgiveness and moving on. 

BLESSED has released his highly anticipated debut album AUSSIE BLACKSTAR alongside lead single REPLY. The Ghanian Australian artist’s record spans 11 tracks and acts a distinct sonic shift for the artist, with the opus work representing his expansive and corner turning musical journey. 

Danger Mouse & Black Thought -No Gold Teeth
Danger Mouse & Black Thought have announced their forthcoming joint album Cheat Codes is set for release on the 12th of August. The album is the first record from Danger Mouse since his collaboration with the great MF DOOM. Today they’ve unveiled its opening single, a bar heavy, chorus free lyrical expose.

KUČKA - Messed Up
Pop savant KUČKA has released her new single Messed Up, the beginning of a stream of new music. Messed Up is a UK garage tinged, yet futuristic number. It features sizzling bass, broken, glitchy vocal breaks and her one of a kind cosmic vocals.

Craterface - moonroof
Mulubinba / Newcastle via Eora / Sydney alternative rap duo Craterface have released a low-key, deeply intimate new single in the form of moonroof. The laidback track sees striking, deeply emotive production pave the way for a discussion of mental health and the vast effects of it.
