  • Young Lions – Run
    Young Lions – Run

    “Young Lions confidence and strut shines on this latest track, a steely-eyed gunslinger with a twitchy trigger finger 🀠”

  • Steve Bourk – Wild Horse
    Steve Bourk – Wild Horse

    “This relentlessly inventive songwriter is one of Australia’s true gems and this latest solo work is another twisted carnival, crashes and bangs and smiling 🎠”

  • Imogen Clark – I Got Dumped For Christmas
    Imogen Clark – I Got Dumped For Christmas

    “Another gift on the pile to add to both a brilliant body of work and all the better Xmas playlists 🎁”

  • Horror My Friend – Corners Peeling
    Horror My Friend – Corners Peeling

    “As always, Horror My Friend’s skill is to thread a path through paranoia towards joy, towering songs exploding out of shadows filled with fear and doubt 😬”

  • LOSER – Hold On You
    LOSER – Hold On You

    “A softer, gentler offering from LOSER this time out, but retaining the searing larynx and giant guitars we know and love 🎸”

πŸ•΅οΈ Guides

If new Australian music is your thing, I’ve put together a couple of guides to help you out.

πŸ€– Music Data

Who’s getting the most adds on the best playlists, who’s getting the most Spotify support on New Music Friday, and how new music playlists behave in Australia.

Most Playlisted

Who’s getting the most adds on the most credible new music playlists in Australia? My robots scour them every week to find out – discover who’s lighting up the tastemaker’s tastebuds here.

Playlist Map

If you *really* want to go down the rabbit hole, this is for you. Which playlists post the newest music by the newest artists? Find out here, plus which playlist to approach for support, and when.

New Music Friday

Looking outside of Australia, I also track who’s getting added across the biggest nine New Music Friday playlists globally, to see who’s getting the most backing from Spotify. Dig in here.

πŸ“± Socials

Feeding the algorithm until it bursts and dies

Follow on Instagram for live music pics, new music roundups, and who’s getting the most playlist adds.

Follow on TikTok for all the burst mode shots from the shows. They’re kind of fun, I like them.
