Legendary bush band The Bushwackers have just released their brand new single and video “Leave It In The Ground”. Folk music and the protest movement have long been interlinked and The Bushwackers are adding to that tradition with this track, protesting the take over of farming and rural landscapes for the profit of mining and energy companies.

Watch Julia Jacklin New Video “Leadlight” Plus Details of Her Debut Album

When she’s not staring in her friend’s music videos Sydney singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin produces some pretty special music.

Jacklin’s latest single is “Leadlight”, the video to which was filmed in her old high school hall.

“A lot of the shots focus on the stage where I performed in the chorus for Grease and Fiddler on the Roof and the unfortunate time I chose to sing “Wonderwall” to a backing CD for a senior assembly,” Julia Jacklin explained. “I went back there recently and saw the hall in a whole new light. When I was at school I never really thought about it, it was just a boring school hall that I was forced to sit in for long assemblies and exams. Now I think it’s a really beautiful space.”

Check out the video for “Leadlight” here:

“Leadlight” is the latest taste of Julia Jacklin’s upcoming debut album. Titled Don’t Let The Kids Win the album is due for release on the 7th October. Here’s the full tracklist:

Pool Party
Leadlight
Coming of Age
Elizabeth
Motherland
Small Talk
LA Dream
Sweet Step
Same Airport
Hay Plain
Don’t Let the Kids Win

Julia Jacklin has shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne at the end of the month:

Wednesday 27th July – Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane, QLD
Thursday 28th July – Newtown Social Club, Sydney, NSW
Friday 29th July – Northcote Social Club, Melbourne, VIC

The video was shot on a lake in Iceland. Check it out below:

Bluegrass @ Yulli’s for July 2016

Oh Willy Dear

If you’re looking to keep warm on these cold July nights in Sydney then you can’t go past this month’s edition of Bluegrass @ Yulli’s.

The regular jam and performance night will be taking place as usual upstairs at Yulli’s in Surry Hills on Wednesday 20th July.

At 6pm it’s an all in jam where you’re invited to bring along your instrument and play along with some of Sydney’s finest musicians – or just watch on if being an audience member is more your thing.

Then from 8pm the feature artist will take to the stage – and this month is Timber and Steel favourites Oh Willy Dear which we’re so excited about.

As always Bluegrass @ Yulli’s is free entry. For more information check out the official Facebook event here.

Watch the New Matthew and the Atlas Video “On A Midnight Street”

Matthew and the Atlas

The latest single for English nu-folk band Matthew and the Atlas is the epic track “On A Midnight Street”. Taken from their exceptional new album Temple, the track stems from songwriter Matt Hegarty’s fears about climate change.

“The song is an attempt at writing about climate change from the emotional perspective of being a new father,” Hegarty explained. “Trying to understand some of the apathy around it, hopefully without sounding too moralistic.”

Check out the video for “On A Midnight Street” below:
