Customer review highlights
“That was a really beautiful journey an experience from beginning to end. I felt transported to a bazaar or the outback – places I’ve only been in my imagination.
It was wild having heard some of these tunes in acoustic from months ago.
Now every sound – every song… nuanced and played – recorded and mixed – to perfection.
My ears – my mind strained at times to take it all in.
Hit by a tantric piano hammer.
And – like any great trip – it was worth the wait! X”

“Listened to some of the album, and it’s marvelous so far! It’s loose and weird, and everyone seemed to be having a right good time.”

From Steve Kilbey:
In 1990 I released an album called Remindlessness in which I attempted to take in everything I had ever been fascinated by and reconcile the whole damn lot with a weird and wild bunch of songs.

30 years on, armed with brilliant musicians (The Winged Heels), time has enabled me to give voice to those same preoccupations: past lives, Indian and Middle Eastern music, religion, ancient history, the Beatles and the many implications of their work.

A new sprawling double album, a labour of love.  The record I had to make before I shuffle off this mortal coil and begin again all over – some other time, some other place.  But this record is the big one and even if I do get another 30 years down here it will be a hard one to ever top.

“I have never been prouder of an achievement in my life.

Please, if you will, wander through The Hall of Counterfeits and take it all in.…”

Julie-Anne Marshall releases new single SHIFT

"Julie-Anne Marshall releases new single SHIFT"

               Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Julie-Anne Marshall has just released her 8thsingle “SHIFT”.

              The song has an 80’s soft rock feel with earthy vocals and it touches upon the topic of superficial lifestyle choices.

              As an artist Julie-Anne has an ‘ease’ about her, as she goes whereever the song takes her, moving in between as well as    fusing genres.

              As a songwriter, her songs are lyric driven, melodic, simple and with a bit of sass.

JAM21

Julie-Anne first started recording and releasing from her home town of Adelaide and now with her move to Melbourne has found the opportunities for collaborations and the fresh vibe of a new city has inspired her writing and performing even further.

Soundslikecafe has been supporting Julie-Anne’s work from the get go and her songs always receive a very warm welcome across the cafe network.

New Release to radio from PG Naylor

"New Release to radio from PG Naylor"

Phil Naylor is a Sydney, Australia-based singer/songwriter who has been recording under the name PG Naylor since 2018.  He was originally rhythm guitarist/vocalist with 60s band The Quiet Ones, who played surf clubs, football clubs, suburban dances and discos, as well as country Bachelors and Spinsters and Town and Country balls during the 60s.

The Quiet Ones reformed in 2007 to support the original Aztecs for a fundraising event for Beyond Blue.  The band continued to perform at charity functions , having raised around $50k for their chosen charity -Bo Children’s Hospital in Sierra Leone.

In 2017, having left the corporate world, Phil commenced a project with legendary Australian instrumental guitarist, Kim Humphreys, to record his original compositions, releasing two albums: Sanctuary and 60’ Refugee.

The title track from Sanctuary was a semi finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition based in Nashville USA.  Sanctuary and Hollywood Road were semi finalists in the 2020 Voyager International Songwriting Competition based in Melbourne  Australia.

60s Refugee, including the tracks 60s Refugee, Law ‘Biding Man and Hollywood Road represents ‘tongue -in-cheek’ reflections on life and events with a strong 60s rock beat.  The unmistakeable guitar style of Kim Humphreys and the ‘lived-in’ quality in PG Naylor’s voice are evident on all tracks.

The track 60s Refugee, with a 60s bluesy rock feel, perhaps best encapsulates the state of mind of the writer and performer yearning for the ‘good ol’ days’ of the 60s.

Law ‘biding Man has a great 60s gutsy riff which drives the song under some innovative lead guitar, while Hollywood Road brings events closer to the current era with a visit to a Hong Kong bar and civil unrest outside.

Song Descriptions:
Law ‘Biding Man
Here’s a great up-tempo, 60’s revival sounding tune with all the right elements, hooky guitars, vocals and harmonies, strong rhythm section and some poppy keyboards to boot.
Spotify link to stream:spotify_2015
60s Refugee
A more blues-based tune with some harmonica taking the riffs.  A strong chorus sets this one apart as a powerful ode to the entire era.  The Stones and The Beatles even get a mention.

spotify_2015

Hollywood Road
A dark guitar riff begins this straight ahead rock tune.  Once the vocals kick in it’s a story telling song all about those classic experiences in a new city we can all relate to.  Like all of these PG Naylor tunes its up-tempo, catchy and well worth a listen.

Anya Alchemy releases her second single ‘For You’

"Anya Alchemy releases her second single ‘For You’"
Soundslikecafe is proud to feature this outstanding new young artist, well worthy of support.
17-year-old Anya Alchemy is a gritty singer-song writer from the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia.
Anya first erupted into the music scene with her debut single ‘Home’ featuring popular Australian rapper Pez.
Home drew attention to the protection of childhood innocence in the face of threats
including underage marriage, child labour and violence.
Anya Alchemy is now releasing her second single, ‘For You’, a heart-grasping, acoustic track
exploring a collective history of one-sided love stories—recounting a narrative built from a collage of heartbreak. 
Screen Shot 2021-04-20 at 12.19.20 pm
Employing an articulate and polyphonic atmosphere of melodic guitars and string quartets, Anya has created a piece that
perfectly embodies the emotional build-up of this supercut of doomed romances. The minimalist lyric style cuts to the core
and plucks the heart strings, perfectly complimented by her intimate delivery.

Screen Shot 2021-04-20 at 12.18.17 pm

Central Coast Band Thirty Three Degrees Release their Debut single – Place in the Sun

"Central Coast Band Thirty Three Degrees Release their Debut single – Place in the Sun"

Thirty Three Degrees are an original rock band with a strong groove and some rootsy vibes, from the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

After a brief hiatus from the music scene, Shane decided to re-enter the music world and search for like-minded musicians to write and perform with. At this same time, Chris was re-entering Australia from Los Angeles with the same goal. Thanks to musician classifieds on social media, the two met up and at the end of January 2020, Shane Romeyn and Chris Roberts formed the band.

The good vibes and good songs flowed out immediately. Due to COVID-19 gigs were off the table for the most part, so with the temporary assistance and amazing bass work of Chris’ brother Mike, the band decided to instead enter the studio and recorded their debut album.

Since then the band has brought on a full-time bass player, Andrew, to complete the trio and they are continuing to pump out song after song and rehearse for future gigs.

Place in the Sun
First single from the Thirty Three Degrees debut album. A story about keeping a dream alive and enjoying your place in the sun. This is the perfect summer rock tune, think Tom Petty, Neil Young and the rest.  Plenty to spark interest in the vocals and full band backing and a rocking up-tempo backing track.
