Chris Cheney produced the single by this emerging Melbourne three-piece, a straight-faced country rock number that would sit comfortably in a Billy Ray Cyrus set list. It rocks, it rolls, it boot scoots, it speaks of wanton women and broken men, and hits familiar notes in a very familiar order. Absolutely pleasant but also completely bland.

Next month, the former Screaming Trees front man and occasional vocalist for Queens Of The Stone Age releases his first Mark Lanegan Band album since 2004. The Gravedigger’s Song is a steady, creepy opener, wide in scope and full of malice. It evokes the horror rock of Marilyn Manson, without descending into full bore goth hysteria.

In the digital era it's refreshing to come across an artist with a mythical quality, whether self-created or not. As soon as the darkly comic tones of Love Thine Enemy come on you know that you're listening to the enigmatically laidback Cass McCombs and that shit is about to go down. On the aforementioned opener he talks of hating a lack of sincerity, then turns around and makes an attempt to...

"Lynchian". The word is everywhere these days. It's gotten to the stage where the adjective has wedged itself into the vernacular of the music journalist far more prominently than that of the film critic. Uneasy nostalgia? Lynchian. Slight references to misogyny? Lynchian. The curtains at The Toff? Lynchian. Is the debut solo recording effort from the man himself Lynchian? Is it even possible...

A long time ago in a musical and social galaxy far away, there was a tall, wiry kid from Brisbane called Greg Perkins. Greg loved his country music, so much so that his friends took to calling him Tex. When Perkins moved south to Sydney to escape the boredom and draconian political atmosphere of Joh Bjelke-Peterson's conservative government, Perkins took both his love with country music and...

Joker is the UK’s answer to Usher or Justin Timberlake, a slick producer/performer whose music is a cut above most chart RnB fare, but only a slim cut. Here Come the Lights emulates Kanye’s heavy, dark production style, but the central feature of this track is a by-the-book, honey smooth and slightly hokey soul vocal.
