Correatown

Correatown is an alias for Angela Correa. Correatown was a name someone called her once. Based in the Eastside of Los Angeles, the band is the musical project of Angela Correa with bandmates Mike Corwin, Jenni Tarma and Rob Poynter. In previous incarnations, Correatown was a more spare amalgam of early folk and lo-fi buzzing indie rock; however, over the past few years the sound has evolved into a lush and textured experience of melodic soundscapes.

Dawn Kinnard

Dawn Kinnard doesn’t need a biography. She needs professional help. Or that’s at least what you or I might prescribe. But that’s because we subscribe to the traditional approach to self perception and method of understanding our own place in the universe. In reality, there’s nothing wrong with her, she does things a little differently. She drinks Guinness for a start; which isn’t that strange I suppose but is maybe a little odd for a woman who was born and raised by a loving mother and Preacher father in the US state of Pennsylvania; a long way away from The Emerald Isle.

The Golden Boys

On “Plainsman’s Lament,” above an organ that stands tall like a support group and guitars that wobble loose like weak knees, Austin, Texas’ The Golden Boys howl, “We’ll drink until we’ve had our fill/ No one who knows us can stop us/ And no one will.” And while they might be singing (again) about drinking, the most noteworthy thing here—aside from a hook that you’ll never forget—is the sense of irrepressible joy and abandon that The Golden Boys bring.

The Zebras

On first blush, this sounds like the latest gorgeous, jangly guitar pop record from somewhere north of Manchester. Belle and Sebastian meet the better moments of the Lightning Seeds, with Aztec Camera's Roddy Frame strumming away. But on closer listening there's a certain local twang to both the voices and the music on the second production from this unheralded Brisbane six-piece. There's nary a foot, or a note, wrong on this, and the Zebras can lay claim to being, if not the heirs, then at least the love child of the Go-Betweens.
