Dream Factory Volume 1 is an eclectic mix of a dozen songs of easy to engage music in which, like a pick ‘n’ mix bag of sweets, the listener will discover a different flavour with each track.

Instrumentation used in various combinations include, piano, electronica, synthesiser, guitar and drum with vocal feeding through the textures.

My pick of the release being the guitar led closer – When.

An eight track album of deeply resonating droning instrumentation which seeps in to the cortex, with saxophone, giving the sense of disturbance, surrounded by sustained guitar, incessant percussion and quietly layered synthesis.

With their music reflective of a society in which the indigenous population have been marginalised and treated as interlopers through intended policies and objectives Divide And Dissolve is uncompromisomng in their aim to recalibrate priorities with their music being, intentionally, both challenging and confrontational.

The first song to be revealed – the second on the LP – Assimilation – signposts of a release to which I am looking forward.

Tapestry – Dark Shade – Video

The Australian indie-dance quintet Tapestry are finalising the details for an EP set for release in early 2018.



An expansive vocal enables Tapestry to deliver a sound which soars through an impressive and extensive vocal range set against a mellowed back drop of breezy fretboards as the effervescent drum-kit sparks energy.

From the forthcoming EP Dark Shade.
