Welcome to the weekend! We’re starting it off with new tracks from Loon Lake, Knesset, Jackson Firebird, Collarbones, Mr Little Jeans & Jeremy Neale. Enjoy!

Loon Lake – Cherry Lips

This indie five piece create music from pure interest, stating ‘we play music because we find it fun’ and they make it fun for everyone else as well. ‘Cherry Lips’ begins with feet tapping guitar that continues throughout the track and follows on with the inviting lyrics, ‘put the cherry on your lips and shake those sexy hips’.

Knesset – Make Like A Parade

The latest single off the Phoenix-based 4-piece’s debut LP ‘Coming of Age’ is one of the strongest tracks on the album. With a strong horn section, drums reminiscent of The National’s first record and the smooth vocals of lead singer Evan Fox,  ‘Make Like A Parade’ is a dream made in alt-rock heaven. The single, as well as the album is well worth a listen.

Jackson Firebird – Quan Dang

This is straight up rock composed by these two Mildura locals. With harsh vocals and guitar being the main star, ‘Quan Dang’ showcases their ability to create raw rock and do it well. This track is off their latest album, Cock Rockin’, released on June 8.

Collarbones – Missing

Australia’s favorite long-distance band (one member resides in Sydney, the other in Adelaide) is back with a new single.  ‘Missing’ is the first track off of their upcoming second album ‘Die Young’ which is due in September. Staying true to form, the duo continue to explore the realm of ambient samples and thoughtful lyrics. Their latest effort is bound to impress.

Mr Little Jeans – Runaway (Fools Gold Remix)

A combination of sweet vocals from Monica Birkenes and a simple beat make for a great remix of ‘Runaway’. The remix still holds the original melody, sounding like a more toned down dance track dominated by the strong sound of Mr Little Jeans.

Jeremy Neale – Darlin’

Neale takes listeners back to a time where the music world was filled with heartfelt songs of affection. He doesn’t hide his emotions in his lyrics, ‘my darlin’, be mine… and then I’ll take you by the hand’. A reinvention of past crooner style, with a jazz vibe by the sax.
