Earlier this month, Melbourne gutter-rock outfit CIVIC ushered forth a sublime collection of direct and hard-nosed noise in the form of EP New Vietnam.

Brisbane’s Blank Realm emerges after a few years of quiet with an album of largely instrumental tracks, released through Hobbies Galore. While not continuing the dazzling psych-pop wonder of previous records, Last Seen is an engaging and impressive study in atmosphere, musicianship and sonic world building. Link to review in bio.

Chuffed to premiere the new track from Melbourne’s Baby Blue. ‘I Like You’ is an ode to owning one’s feelings unashamedly, set to a backdrop of an emotionally charged dream-pop jangle. Link in bio. Image: Kristoffer Paulsen

Canberra singer and songwriter Shoeb Ahmad has released ‘Significant Looks’ – an ambient cover of a track originally crafted by Sydney trio Clean Shirt. ‘Significant Looks’ is a track that is weighed down with undeniable melancholy and sadness, but here it is given proper delicate treatment and is imbued with a softness that is engrossing and undeniably powerful.
