If it hadn't been for a handful of happy accidents, Perth-based duo amor. might not have even happened at all. The brainchild of singer Aiden Walsh and producer Dylan Guy, amor.'s humble beginnings read like they were written in the stars: from instagram DM's to internet collaboration to a chance meeting a friend's studio, the band feels like it was meant to be long before either one of them realised it. And good thing too, because the unconventional combo are coming out with some of the most interesting alt hip-hop I've heard in years. Case in point, their latest release 'scars' featuring Mali Jo$e, a transfixing piece of low-fi hip-hop that feels like the perfect soundtrack to a late-night summer drive past Cottesloe beach.
Only ten days left till Halloween! We hope you have your costumes ready, your pumpkins carved, and your party decorations ready to go. And to keep your Halloween-inspired playlists full, we've got a witchy new track from LA's own queen of the soft-goth Jesse Jo Stark, 'Cry On Me', a Lana-Del-Rey-meets-Fleetwood-Mac slow burn that will have you reaching for the eyeliner with one hand and your incense with the other.
Our modern internet-obsessed lives can feel a little silly sometimes. Laughs becoming lols, showing empathy becoming as easy as hitting the 'like' button; even our own genitals have given themselves up to the cause and become emojis (I'm looking at you eggplant). But that's where an artist like bbno$ comes in, who's latest album eat ya veggiesunderstands this kind of silliness and channels it into a series of tracks that never lose sight of the bottom line: share-ability.
