Handpicked and curated with love, Weekly Jams is a playlist of all the best music that’s just dropped. This edition sees some incredible local tracks – across all different genres, as well as an absolute fire collaboration from two international up-and-comers.
THE PEEKS – DON’T TELL YOUR MAMA
Featuring the gorgeous vocals of Central Coast songstress Anabelle Kay, this track from the indie folk trio is an overwhelmingly pleasant listen.
A surprise collaboration with rapper of the minute GoldLink spawned a track that’s smooth af. Listen and weep a lil’ bit.
THE CREASES – IMPACT
Two words. HORNS SECTION – I’m an absolute sucker for them. The Brisbane lads kill it on their latest track, showing a new side to their beaut indie pop stylings.
TALES IN SPACE – STORMY EYES
A sweet lil’ track from the Sydney duo. Dreamy and saccharine sweet, it’s a winner.
THE GOOCH PALMS – Ask Me Why
A ridiculously fun DIY-punk banger from Los Angeles-via-Newcastle’s finest.
JORDAN RAKEI – TALK TO ME
An extraordinary talent born and bred in Brisbane (now based in London) Jordan Rakei creates beautiful, genre straddling tunes. With a debut LP out in June, I’m making the prediction now that he’ll be gracing quite a few end of year lists.
MODERN BASEBALL – WEDDING SINGER
You’ll never feel alone when listening to Modern Baseball. Fact.
PUMAROSA – CECILE
There’s a big build up, but it is so worth sticking this whole track out. It hits hard, and there’s jangle in all the right places
THE BIG MOON – CUPID
SHIT YEAH, these ladies are slaying. They’re Fiction Records’ latest signing and are picking all sorts of hype up in the UK. Get around The Big Moon.
JACKIE BROWN JR – LAKE LOSER
“I’ve never been this broke and I’ve never been this happy.” Relatable tracks 101, with Jackie Brown Jr.
MIDDLE KIDS – EDGE OF TOWN
Sometimes, you hear a track where everything comes together so beautifully it’s like goddamn magic. This is one of those songs. I can’t put it any more eloquently than that.
