Drenched in Brisbane pride, power pop-rock outfit Babaganouj have grown a legion of fans since their 2011 inception.

This success took them on headlining tours, as well as prominent billing on The Blurst of Times Festival tour. Driven by Charles Sale’s signature on-stage power lunges, the Triple J Unearthed favourites have supported the likes of The Preatures, Smudge, Veruca Salt, The Lemonheads, Northeast Party House and The Creases.?

LÅNGFINGER NEW SINGLE
A truly kick-ass power trio is quite possibly the perfect rock formation. If there aren’t that many trios around, that’s because it’s a hard thing to pull off: with just three people having to nail the rhythmic fusion of bass and drums, the wild colors of guitar, and the soul-grabbing focus of the human voice, there can be no passengers aboard. Extraordinary chemistry is essential. Everyone has to be right on it, and locked in. Which is why lots of trios fail, or cop out, and recruit extras.
ONERA NEW SINGLE
New Hampshire-based doom metal quintet ONERA proudly presents their debut EP, Olde, which has just been independently released by the band, and is now streaming in its entirety.

LADY WRAY “GUILTY” PREMIERES AT CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
Virginia-born singer/songwriter Nicole Wray is Lady Wray and she has everything you’d want in a singer: an infectious Jackson-5-family-member flare, a range like Aretha’s, and a church upbringing that’s brought a pure, healing texture to her voice and gained her a mentor in Missy Elliot. But the struggles of the music business, with both label and band-mate fallout, have taken the artist on a rollercoaster ride that’s made her stronger than ever and now she’s ready to make her pinnacle statement.
Genius ft. Ray Jr. “Free All My N*ggas”
When reading statistics such as the U.S. Census citing that 4% of all African-American males are currently incarcerated, some people may feel unaffected. To many, however, that statistic cuts painfully close to home. ATL-based DJ/artist Genius and Cleveland-based rapper Ray Jr have both dealt with the pain and heartache of having loved ones locked up or deported and thus decided to create the song, “Free All My N*ggas,” to humanize those statistics. “Free All My N*ggas” is a heartfelt trap ballad with strong verses and a melodic hook from producer, Matt Steez, who co-penned the hook with Genius. The song deftly explains one of the most prominent examples of inequality in our country and instills a message of hope to those behind bars.
LIE PREMIERE SINISTER, DARK “TRUTH” VIDEO WITH Q&A AT NOISEY

Palm Honey Release New Single ‘Bones’
Psych outfit Palm Honey have announced the release of their latest single Bones. The track, their second release of 2016, follows on from the hugely successful You Stole My Blackout and was originally conceived as a slow, chilled out dream pop track that frontman Joseph Mumford demoed one late night alone in his kitchen.

LULL PREMIERE VIDEO FOR “NOUVELLE”
Of the video guitarist/vocalist Jon Billinge had to say, “We worked with director Tom Palliser on the ‘Nouvelle’ shoot. A lot of our songs carry motifs of the sea, but we knew that we didn’t want anything too fussy or choreographed. There’s always some sort of ebb and flow to our tracks, from these quiet rushes into these big waves, so it felt right to have the placid sea contrasting against Tom’s kinetic camerawork. It’s like the woozy reel of the lure before it gets cast off again, which is true to the song’s heart.” Nouvelle was released last month via PaperCup Music.
After establishing himself as one of Italy’s new and upcoming producers and DJs, USAI’s rise to international fame has been nothing but mesmerising. Since exploding onto the scene, the Milan based multitalented artist has released huge hits such as ‘Vapour’, ‘Prophecy’ and ‘Opium’ on premiere labels including Armada Music, Protocol Recordings and Code Red, and has gained the backing from industry heavyweights such as Axwell, Steve Angello, Hardwell, David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero – monumental achievements for any calibre of artist.
