Loose Tooth Keep Up! Loose Tooth are the latest exponents of Milk! Records - the DIY label founded and run by Courtney Barnett and Jen Cloher. With their debut album, ‘Keep Up’, the Melbourne three-piece have inked their impeccable ear for a hook on a fresh sonic palate of garage rock and sublime harmonies. The trio are long-time friends with a democratic approach to both song writing and influences, they were raised on the holy trinity of soul, country and Eddy Current. ‘Keep Up’ is a living reminder that the B-52’s used to be a punk band.

Max Jury Modern World Modern World' is the second album from 26-year-old Iowa native Max Jury, set for release by Marathon Artists on 31st May. The follow up to 2016's critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, 'Modern World' is a graceful, sophisticated and truly contemporary body of work, brimming with Jury's vast and eclectic range of influences. It is an album about life, friendship and facing each day with a renewed clarity. Produced by four time Grammy nominated Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, Jessie Ware, Anderson .Paak), the album is steeped in soul and jazz influences. The stunning 'Stillness' for example, arrives with a bassline that wouldn'tt sound out of place on a Thundercat record. 'Fading Out of You' manages to evoke Jury's newly chosen home of Paris before a huge RnB beat comes in, complimented perfectly by the warmth and subtlety of his vocal, which since his debut, has grown into an androgynous instrument that dances across his music.

Jen Cloher Jen Cloher The fourth album from Melbourne punk-rock figurehead Jen Cloher, following on from her previous acclaimed album On Blood Memory. The self-titled album, "Jen Cloher", represents another quantum leap forward for the artist. Recorded amidst the rolling greenery of South-Eastern Australia and mixed at Jeff Tweedy's famous Loft Studios in Chicago, the songs are split by Courtney Barnett's extraordinary lead guitar and anchored by the rhythm section of Bones Sloane and Jen Sholakis. The end result is bold, assured, and piercingly observed, seeing Cloher face up to painful truths with unwavering honesty and emerge triumphant. Marathon Artists CD | LP
