Earlier this year, Quivers released the most excellent Golden Doubt, receiving rave reviews all over the globe…not to mention ATH adoration. So, having followed the band, we reached out to songwriter Sam Nicholson to ask a few questions about the record and its release, and asked him to share a recipe with us. He’s obliged with some incredible answers, and a recipe for Golden Doubt Lemon Delicious Self-Saucing Pudding. Read on and find yourself a detailed recipe you can easily follow at home!
One of the album’s that’s high upon my personal radar is the debut from Australia’s Pop Filter, a band that features various players in the scene we’ve grown to love. One of the perks of this band is that they’ve always worked as this collection of great songwriters, with Mark Rogers taking the main role here to revisit a song he begun back in 2014. I love the inviting aura of the song, lightly strummed guitar with Rogers’ sublime melody rising on the crest as a distant guitar cries somewhere out in space. But, just as you hit the 3 minute mark, you get a treat, as the whole band joins in stomping their way to a catchy closing with a reminder that “its better than giving in.” Pop Filter will release Banskia on August 21st via Osborne Again/Bobo Integral.
It looks like the folks over at Upset the Rhythm can’t wait to have you hear the new LP from Terry, as they’re offering up the third single from the group’s I’m Terry. The first two and a half minutes of the band’s latest should definitely have you captivated; it walks a fine line between happy bounding and plodding bounce, steady from start to finish. They offer up some sonic respite, but at this point, its fleeting as the group jump back into their harmony-induced meat of the track. You’ll find the latter half of the tune offering musicianship and sonic playfulness…just the band showing their musical chops. The new LP drops on August 31st.
It’s that time of month where we give you more new music from our favorite Aussie’s, The Ocean Party. The band’s been pretty prolific, getting an album a year out, including last year’s Light Weight, which we helped find a home in the States. Here they are set to release their newest, Restless, and the titular track illustrates how much they’ve grown as a band; the production and accompaniment on this track alone demonstrates what a huge pop group they’ve become. Restless is being handled by Spunk; it will have a worldwide release on September 30th…get ready for another album of great tunes. And! If you’re in the States, look for the band to head our way soon!

Just before the holiday break and year-end lists I wrote a short note about Tam Vantage, who used to be part of Pop Singles (sorely missed). But, I got carried away with getting back to work and reading all those arbitrary lists, so I missed when he released another great single just before the year ended. So, why not make your Monday by sharing this tune with you. It’s a really subtle pop tune, slightly revolving around a melancholy tone that is being offset by the Australian perfected jangle in the guitars. Just one of the reasons I love this sound.
