The Australian gritty-blues creator Angie McMahon released the single Missing Me on the 26th.
A sumptuous vocal is joined by a scratched guitar minding of gnarly wind blowing through a plain scattering tumbleweed over dust, leading the audience to take shelter in the nearby ramshackle saloon bar only to discover they have entered the most gracious hostelry they have ever wandered in to and after an afternoon of settling in comfort with the companionship reluctantly realising they do have to depart only to retain the memory forever in their mind.
I look forward to supping more whisky in a lonely spot with a sawdust floor somewhere on the road with Angie McMahon in the future – as correctly posited – I am already missing you.
Missing Me – Single – Angie McMahon is available on iTunes.*

The Australian firedance-folk creator Charlotte Roberts is due to release the LP Stay in Your Power in May.
Released in advance of the album of the 15th, as a standalone single (available on bandcamp), the conundrums of the hypnotic Dr. Lalalulu.
A just over three and two thirds minutes song of conflicting ideas, which, rather than crashing like a mid-air collision merges a spellbinding primal rhythm, with its scintillating percussive puddling, that is laid to an acerbic commentary of the narcissism in to which much of human existence has regressed in the 21st Century.
Rather than being bitter of the silos in to which many have reversed, Dr. Lalalulu, offers an extending arm towards a world of inclusion and away from the siege barricaded mentality of self-adulation and hollow applause for the gaudy baubles possessed.

Mariah McCarthy is an Australian beguiling-folk creator.
Much as I enjoy and feature music to which I can pogo around the room, banging my shins and toppling desks along the way and as regular readers know being a punk rocker from the ’70s inevitably my turf – it is only occasionally one can turn on music and fall in instant love.
Is there such a thing as love at first sight? I have no idea – but I do know once every year or so – up pops a song with an auditory flow which instantly melts my heart and Counting Sheep – a début solo release taboot – by Mariah McCarthy – is one of those instances.

The Australian dream-synth project Merpire is currently working towards the release of an EP.
As a taster the single Hauntways was released today (available on bandcamp) – a song which holds, simultaneously, both a dreamy soundscape whilst also a tender fragility in which the listener becomes softly robed in the multilayered melodies.

The four track, approximately thirteen minutes, EP slides gently out of the speakers prior to building complex polyhedrons which rapidly dissolve and dissipate through the room in intricate patterns and fragile layers which degrade slowly in to silence while simultaneously the ensuing phrases undergo similar transformation.
The opening composition is Orpheus.
