    Jesu by Gurrumul


    Gospel

    It isn’t hard to believe that music has become plastic and, in the process, has lost the true meaning that one made music important. Gurrumul, with his devotional song “Jesu”, tips the balance back towards the truth. A much overused phrase perhaps but Gurrumul is a voice in the darkness.

    Blow by Eyes of a Blue Dog


    Best foot forward

    An endearingly quirky take on the electro pop genre, “Blow” shows that Eyes of Blue Dog have the courage to escape the tyranny of the eighties revisionism while Elisabeth Nygård’s ever pirouetting voice takes the song right into the windmills of your mind.

    Grind by Stephanie O


    Class leader

    With a voice of near theatrical expressiveness, Stephanie O transcends the limitations of the sensitive singer songwriter with “Grind”. Maturity is sometimes all you need to make a song work and she has that and a whole lot more.

    Creativity by Leslie Rohonczy


    Canada dry

    Good things can come out of Canada and Leslie Rohonczy is one of them. Her song “Creativity” exorcises the ghost of pretentious eighties American rock and then stomps all over it in the name of ironic parody. Make it so!

    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!
