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

Jagwar Ma Every Now & Then Anticipated second album from Australian trio Jagwar Ma. Melodic psych-pop crossed with late night dancefloor tendencies. For fans of Tame Impala and The Stone Roses through to Hot Chip and Glass Animals Overall this stunning record encapsulates the band at their most entrancing and anthemic – a wig out of oscillating acid bassline, ricocheting dub-fused guitars and heady pop psychedelia bathed in strobe-lit sonics. It was self-produced and recorded in the United Kingdom, Australia and France, then tweaked and mixed with the assistance of some of their brightest contemporaries, James Ford (Florence and The Machine, Arctic Monkeys), Blue May (Kwes, Kindness), Ewan Pearson (LCD Soundsystem, Chemical Brothers) and David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs, Glass Animals).

Courtney Barnett Nameless, Faceless A new surprise 7" single from Courtney Barnett, awesome slacker / garage indie-rock taken from her highly anticipated second full length solo album Tell Me How You Really Feel. One of the most distinctive voices in music, Courtney is known for mixing witty observations with unflinching self-assessment - fast forward to now and although all of the cleaver turns of phrase and an eye for story telling are still there; this new collection of songs see a more serious and outwardly tone capturing the current social landscape yet still retaining moments of intimacy and warmth. As the world becomes more familiar with Courtney Barnett these songs feel comforting and emphatic yet that raw energy and the ability to make the listener think still remain. Marathon Artists 7"

Childhood Universal High The highly anticipated second studio album from Childhood, Psychedelic and funky pop music that swirls in the 70's soul of The Isley Brothers, Curtis Mayfield and Shuggie Otis. Ben Romans-Hopcraft says, “’Universal High’ represents many things to us as a band. It signifies change, both musically and mentally whilst also revisiting influences that confounded our interest in music in the first place. What I think is noticeable is the direct nature of the songs and its influences. Being surrounded by soul music, classic pop songs and music with any form of groove all my life, these influences began to speak for themselves within these new songs we were writing”.
