Five songs of summer-evening warmth (available on bandcamp) which fill the room with a perceptible raising of ambient temperature.

The compositions have a vague trad-jazz influence to them that feeds through as a skipping rhythm which is fused within hazy echoing guitar. The middle track is also the EP title Take The Train Home.

The Tambourine Girls – You Don’t See Me – Audio

It was back in 2014 that the Australian synth-rock quartet The Tambourine Girls last featured.

The Tambourine Girls

Word arrives that a new LP is due for release in early 2018 with the first track from the album  – You Don’t See Me – having been released as a stand alone single on the 17th.

A pulsing, persistent, metronomic drum-pad lays under interweaving sequences of electronica and guitar that create a hypnotic landscape through which a dreamy vocal becalms the listener and rounding out a song that prefaces of an LP which has, by this track alone, piqued intrigue.

You Don’t See Me – Single – The Tambourine Girls is available on iTunes.*

Faux Bandit – Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme – Single Review

Faux Bandit is a rock duo from Australia.

On hitting play on their latest single Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme (available on bandcamp) the listener can easily convince themselves there are more than two players in Faux Bandit with their headbanging rock of tight riffs, driving percussion and snapping vocal.

Fast creating a stir in their local live circuit, Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme, can’t but help to underline their abilities and open new opportunities. Necessarily, retaining a tight reign in studio performance, the listener is drawn to the conclusion that Faux Bandit is a band to see on stage as even through the speakers the fizzing energy is palpable while the switched on lyric and musical delivery sear through the room.

MEZKO – Steady On – Video

MEZKO is an electro-rock duo from Australia.



The sultry blend of instrumentation and electronics lead to a dungeon of whips, chains and cages, in which the listener pleads submission in which to be entombed as the supple compositions stretch and claw.

From their most recent EP, Polychronic, the penultimate of the five tracks Steady On serves as an introduction to an outfit I look forward to hearing more from in short order.


Polychronic – EP – MEZKO is available on iTunes.*

Those who know the site will be aware that my preferred means to listen to music is on vinyl – Transit Lounge will be at the opposite end of the spectrum as it will only be available as an application.

Having previously featured USB stick only releases, this app only release by Enerate marks a new development, to my experience,  though how those who use Linux machines will be able to secure the release without a lot of faffing around I have no idea. By the nature of the app marketplaces I am also unable to provide you with a link in advance to pre-order – though word arrives it will be released at 09:00 on the 16th. Though given that the band is based in Sydney, Australia, I can’t even let you know which 09:00 of the 24 + that 09:00 refers (there are also time-zones  – even in Australia itself – which are half an hour, and a quarter of an hour apart rather than an hour).

However – despite my reluctance to engage with the concept as it all does sound a bit of a gimmick – the LP itself is set to be something to find much within which to enjoy – the title track which I am able to share with you… and this site exists purely to showcase music that adds to the weave despite any barriers to entry.
