    Flying Cyclist by Professor Skank meets George Avramidis


    Greek dubbing

    Music is indeed a global thing as Professor Skank proves with his remix escapade “Flying Cyclist”. Professor Skank is actually from Greece and I certainly did not expect a seven minute dub groove from that part of the world but here it is. The appropriated trumpet of George Avramidis adds a bit of sophistication to the song’s dancefloor appeal.

    Caveman by Milo McMahon


    Fey folk

    This is as about as lightweight as you will hear this summer with Milo McMahon taking his song “Caveman” for a stroll down the neo-folk yellow brick road. Whilst the intention, in production terms at least, was no doubt quirkiness, the result sounds somewhat incomplete.

    The City is a Stream by Leah Senior


    Australian folk

    Winsome in her approach, Australian Leah Senior never takes her song “The City Is A Stream” far from the traditional but, that said, her voice makes more sense of the poetry of her words than most could. If I were a betting man then I would put a few dollars down on her chances.

    Tiny Islands by Tangerine


    Twee heaven

    Just when you think that you will sink in a sea of cynicism, along comes a rescue boat powered by the kind of catchy indie pop with sugary sweet female vocals that always chases the sharks away. The name on the lifebelt is “Tiny Islands” and the band is called Tangerine. We are saved!

    What Am I Doing Here by Sons of Rico


    Australian indie

    Australian indie popsters Sons of Rico strike out for success with “What Am I Doing Here?” It’s an energetic song that exudes hope and yet still finds room for the singalong chorus that is the secret of mass appeal.

    Plankton by Reverieme


    Deeper thoughts

    Whilst decidedly lightweight in its presentation, “Plankton” is definitely a serious song and, with Louise Connell using wistful repetition to lead her words down the path to enlightenment, metaphorical melancholy has rarely been more appealing.

    Adrenaline by Fred Abbott


    Spirited

    Fred Abbott, formerly of Noah and The Whale, shows his true spirit and accordingly romps through his song “Adrenaline” like a man high on the glory days of American rock music. The guitars aren’t big enough for the job but our Mr. Abbott nonetheless throws his hat into the ring with this one.

    A Million Men 2 Many by Amin El and Michael O’Neill


    Truth lives

    A blues song with both purpose and soul, “A Million Men 2 Many” reeks of honesty with Amin El and Michael O’Neill showing that a social conscience can still co-exist with twelve bars. The overtly political lyrics are to be commended and are more than enough to make you wonder why, and how, hip-hop replaced the blues as the language of the streets.
