Sweet Jane, Sime Nugent and Alice Keath, released their new album, Monday to Friday on May 13.  Check out the hypnotic and hazy "Everything Changes" below.

You can pick up Monday to Friday HERE.

A lot of the songs on Monday to Friday speak to the contrast between the vast and the minuscule, the profound and insignificant, facts and feelings; growing up and realising how fallible our beliefs, memories, and aspirations are in a post-Santa reality, and where to look for that wonder we all seem to need once we realise we're just monkeys wearing runners. We didn't want to explain it as we're no closer to knowing, but it was good to let ourselves hang out there for a while.”

Desert Sound Colony Release New EP and Video

Desert Sound Colony released their new EP Signals on May 13 as well as a video for the title track. Check it out below and you can pick up Signals HERE.

Lead track Signals emerges draped in mystique, blending an intricate guitar loop with whispered intimacy and a dash of dance-floor ambience. Displaying the band’s careful hybrid of intimate song-craft and chugging grooves, Signals weaves a beguiling spell. B side Moon Juice ascribes to their deeply melodic and psychedelic aesthetic with guitar licks and fleshy bass-lines building into a deep and charming press-repeat lullaby.

Photographer Adriana Mateo Releases New Book

Adriana Mateo debuted her new book earlier this week. The book, AM Jazz: Three Generations Under the Lens, features a collection of black and white photos of jazz artists around the world. 

The black and white photos, some hundred in all, are shot on the sly. The photographer is present, invisible, her camera a silent instrument. The focus is on details of what is happening inside the studio or on stage as musicians work together. "Capturing these particular moments was very special for me. I can remember each one," says Adriana. "They represent a bond I form with these artists."
