Thundamentals – Everyone We Know Tour

Their highest chart position to date, Thundamentals 4th and most accomplished long-player ‘Everyone We Know’ debuted at number 2 on the ARIA charts. In what feels like a coming of age, recorded at the studio of good friends Hermitude in Sydney’s Inner West, ‘Everyone We Know’ is the band’s first album to be released on their own label ‘High Depth’ and in the words of Rolling Stone: “pushes their sound even further from their last genre-defying effort… cement[ing] them as a creative force to be reckoned with.” (4 stars) Reputation’s like the one Thundamentals’ carry must be earned. Ten years and 4 albums deep into a career that has seen them relentlessly carve up venues across Australia and Europe whilst gracing almost every major music festival in the country along the way – the Blue Mountains via Sydney Hip Hop outfit are now heralded as one of Australia’s most exciting and powerful live acts. Off the back of album tracks “Never Say Never” and “Think About It Ft. Peta & The Wolves” resulting in more national airplay than the band have ever had before, it’s only fitting that the ‘Everyone We Know’ official Australia & New Zealand album launch tour is the biggest they’ve ever announced. Boasting a musicality rooted in hip hop but at the same time transcending it to offer something for anyone who simply loves music, ‘Everyone We Know’ is an album inspired by real people and real stories. Thundamentals would love for you to be a part of that story, and they a part of...

Daily Meds – Sour Milk Album + Tour

Nominated for an Australian Music Prize for their debut record, progressive 4 piece rap/beats crew DAILY MEDS are back with sophomore album SOUR MILK, a powerful snapshot of our times captured through ferocious raps, soaring vocals and next level beats. Lead single from Sour Milk ‘Behind The Radar’ has made already made an impact receiving spot rotation on triple j and reviews like this from The Vine – “Consider us excited for the album”. The ‘Behind The Radar’ East coast tour boasted an explosive showcase set at BigSound, wild headline spots in Sydney and Melbourne and a Manifest Festival performance that Scenestr simply called: “phenomenal.” The warp-speed rhyme schemes, and subversive lyricism of P.SMURF and MIKOEN, are enhanced by BILLIE ROSE’s soulful, arresting vocals, with a songwriting style that explores the polarity of vulnerability, softness and empathy with strident beauty, ferocious anger and wild outrage. ROLEO’s deft future beats production pulls these diverse elements together, a reflection of why the beatmaker was sought as tour support for Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Samiyam, and for official Hermitude and Thundamentals remixes. SOUR MILK unleashes passion and imagination throughout, a future dystopia wearing spacesuits of trap-hop, [Purple Planet], the rally against creative blocks [Daily Grind], the pleasure and drain of drugs and alcohol [Strange, What Goes Up], badly behaved aussies overseas [Superman] and the money trough that divides people [Money In The Bank Ft Dialectrix]. From One Blink’s initial attraction, the pining heart in Beautiful Place, the relationship doubt of title track Sour Milk, to ignoring unrest to feed something real [Fuck 2Night], and the eventual despair and desertion of Don’t...
