Auliciem’s Debut EP

Coming from a homely, relatable start point to an alternative folk and acoustic final product, the debut EP release from Auliciems, a Brisbane based Alternative-Folk duo, is a pleasure for the ears. With influences including John Butler Trio, Bob Dylan, and Xavier Rudd, this two-piece is comprised of Liam Auliciems (on a wide array of acoustic guitars and vocals) and Caleb Lee (providing the percussion). For a first effort EP that has been hard worked and hand made, it is sensational! You’ll instantly fall in love with the laid back,Read More

TP Monsters

On her debut EP, Rosie, she sang of kings and monsters and this time around she’s at it again with the title track. She’s all grown up now and it seems that the monsters have moved up one level and now sleep in her bed. Where her earlier release featured acoustic stylings of guitar and piano she has taken a more mature approach both musically and lyrically on Monsters. ThisRead More
bree de rome
Gold Coast cowgirl, Bree De Rome’s, latest single Easy to Forget sets you back a real cruisy note with her rich vocals and country-influenced ballads. Reviewing this track was difficult because country isn’t my preferred jam, however for me, Bree made it easy listening. The composition is simple and follows a standard format blending dualities between pop and country. Despite Bree’s intriguing vocals the song can get a little tiring and repetitive at times. Easy to Forget is ideal for the kick back, car trip home on an afternoon, andRead More
