13081682_10153587641268354_1977304629_n

Something a little different on the blog today. ABABCd is an expertly and independently filmed music show based out of Melbourne’s northern suburbs. The focus of the program is to shine a light on 4 different, rising artists through interviews and a live performance of one song from each in a short yet wildly entertaining format. In this episode, catch blinding performances from Pearls, Totally Mild, The Ocean Party and Ausmuteants. A pretty good snapshot of some hot young Melbourne bands right now if you ask us.

FROTH OF THE DAY: RIBONGIA – DOWNSTREAM

12719594_980307635351864_8581203377065671488_o

Sydney producer Ribongia brings us a slice of left field electronica this evening in ‘Downstream’, the latest single lifted from his ESCAPISMS EP. Creating a brilliant meeting point for tribal rhythms, otherworldly field recordings and intricately woven melodies, the single is an incredibly imaginative take on modern trap music. A stellar cut from an even more impressive EP!

Downstream is lifted from Ribongia’s “ESCAPISMS” EP, out now via October Records. Grab it HERE.

FROTH OF THE DAY: DRO CAREY – GROW LITHE

Dro_Carey_-_Grow_Lithe_Single_Cover

Sydney producer Dro Carey takes centre stage today with his dancefloor-ready tune ‘Grow Lithe’. Released on recently minted Soothsayer label out of Melbourne, the track capitalises on the melodic prowess and rhythmic flow of Dro’s Club Injury Handbook EP and continues to reveal new sides to the enigmatic producer’s sonic palate. Carey himself recommends this one for fans of “pan flutes, acid house and UK garage”. We’re sold.

FROTH OF THE DAY: BRAILLE FACE – GLOW

12799050_340224116101685_8332269627673986858_n

Today we’re pleased to be featuring newcomer Braille Face’s ‘Glow’! The single marks the first taste of material for BF, and also ushers the return of Australian label Spirit Level, co-founded by Tim Shiel & Wally De Backer (Gotye). Glow is a pristine piece of bubbling electronica, deriving warmth and clarity from seemingly disparate elements all throughout. An impressive debut, undoubtedly. We’ll be keeping an ear out!

Spirit Level will release the debut full-length from Braille Face in conjunction with Inertia later this year. Grab the single HERE.

City Calm Down hit the triple J studios bright and early this morning to perform an original and a cover. With all of the April Fools jokes out of the way, the band launched into a monstrous cover of Foals cult classic ‘Spanish Sahara’ and finished with a killer rendition of their latest single ‘Your Fix’.
