Tonightly is a comedy show that smacks and unpacks the latest trends, news, inputs, life hacks and gossip and serves them up for you as a nightly dose of hot, must see entertainment (well it used to). Armed with nothing but jokes and access to sweet memes, Tonightly with Tom Ballard is the show that will literally fix everything that is wrong with the world (except it didn’t really). Ballard is (was) joined by a team of four news addicts who are fully across everything ever (they weren’t): Greta Lee-Jackson (SkitBox), Greg Larsen (Fancy Boy) Bridie Connell (Whose Line Is It Anyway? Australia) and Nina Oyama (Utopia). Tonightly Albumly features a collection of unforgettable songs from the dearly-missed series, including the ARIA Award winning ‘Sex Pest’, ‘Literally Everything’, and ‘Goodnightly’.
Australian indie rock royalty Custard have today unveiled their first-ever live release, The Band, Live in the Basement. Recorded on a steamy November night in Sydney, the album captures the group tearing through a career-spanning set of hits in front of a packed room at the storied (and now sadly defunct) nightspot, The Basement. Highlights include blistering renditions of signature tunes like ‘Apartment’ and ‘Girls Like That’; a sprawling rendition of dancefloor-filler ‘(I Feel Like) Ringo’; and a cover of the Jonathan Richman classic ‘Since She Started To Ride’.
All of Slava and Leonard’s recordings as a duo, available together for the first time!Guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are counted amongst the finest musicians of their generation, enthralling audiences with the energy of their performances and the breadth of their repertoire – embracing disparate genres such as classical, jazz and contemporary music from around the world.Slava and Leonard are blessed with an uncanny ability to perform so seamlessly as a duo that they play and ‘breathe’ as one. This sibling collaboration, which commenced in the family home when Leonard was four and Slava 13, has been developing ever since. Growing up and performing together does not guarantee a symbiotic relationship, but what does create the perfect storm is the mutual respect and admiration the brothers have for each other. Perhaps this is the intangible quality that creates their ability to connect with listeners.This box set brings together all eight of their albums recorded as a duo, from 2003’s Play to 2017’s Songs Without Words, and encompasses every element of the artistry of the these extraordinarily talented brothers. Between them, they have received three ARIA awards and an incredible 24 ARIA Award nominations, and have cemented their status as Australia’s favourite guitarists.TRACKLISTINGCD1RODRIGO GUITAR CONCERTOS1-3 RODRIGO Concierto de Aranjuez4-7 RODRIGO Fantasía para un gentilhombre8-17 RODRIGO Concierto madrigal CD2BAROQUE GUITAR CONCERTOS1-3 VIVALDI Concerto in G major for two guitars, RV5324-6 VIVALDI Concerto in A major, RV827-9 VIVALDI Concerto in D major, RV9310-12 HANDEL Concerto in B-flat major for two guitars, HWV29413-17 WEISS Concerto in D minor18-20 FASCH Concerto in D minor CD3IMPRESSIONS1-4 DEBUSSY Suite bergamasque5-8 FALLA Four Spanish Pieces9 MOMPOU Prélude No. 510-23 MOMPOU Variations on a theme of Chopin24 MOMPOU Cançons i danses: No. 725 DEBUSSY Rêverie CD4PLAY1-3 PIAZZOLLA Tango Suite4 E.

Beccy Cole, one of Australia’s most successful singer/songwriters, has announced her highly anticipated new album, ‘Lioness’, which is set to be released on August 24th. Her lead single from the album and title track, ‘Lioness’ has been released today. The South Australian star has been delighting music fans with her unique brand of true entertainment for over 25 years. Beccy’s glowing warmth, husky tones, bawdy sense of humour and hundred-watt smile have helped make her one of the nation’s most loved and celebrated artists. ‘Lioness’ is Beccy’s 12th album and is nothing short of stunning. The album is a collection of self-penned, personal and poignant songs perfectly displaying Beccy’s strength of character, huge heart and razor-sharp wit. In an Australian first, Beccy procured the talents of some of Australia’s finest female musicians to make the only ever 100% female produced album. ‘Lioness’ is produced by the renowned Julz Parker (known best for her amazing guitar work in award-winning band, Hussy Hicks) making this a Beccy Cole album with a new sound, new band and a new outlook on life beyond forty. The lead single, ‘Lioness’, allows a glimpse into Beccy’s personal life as she explores a world beyond falling in love. In a series of short stories showcasing her wit, Beccy takes the listener on a journey of mishap before returning to a chorus declaring life better with her partner. With a driving kick drum and a powerful electric guitar, this is one worth turning the volume up high. Beccy says, “Lioness is about the strength and capabilities I have realised since experiencing life with a loving and supportive partner. The stories within the song are 100% true!”
NATIVE TONGUE is the third studio album from critically acclaimed artist Mojo Juju. Stylistically, Mojo once again embarks on new territory through collaborations with multiple producers – Steven Schram (Paul Kelly), Joelistics (TZU), jnbo (The Cactus Channel) and Jamieson Shaw (Netflix series ‘The Get Down’). The album opens with a guest appearance from ‘The Pasefika Vitoria Choir’ and is followed up by features from Hip Hop MC Mirrah (L-Fresh The Lion), Soul music royalty Joshua Tavares and spoken word artist Lay the Mystic. This time around Juju has taken her eclectic influences and created a seamless and authentically original sound, continuing her dedication to bucking labels, bending genres and doing her own thing. Perhaps the manifold musical incarnations of Juju are symbolic of the manifold pieces that make up her identity. Perhaps this unique blend of Soul, RnB, Blues & Hip Hop is in fact her ‘Native Tongue’.Through the telling of family history and her own personal experiences, Juju explores her relationships with Elders and Ancestry and how that informs her own identity. Contemplating her Mother’s Indigenous heritage, her Father’s experience as a Filipino immigrant and her own place in the cultural landscape of modern Australia, it is an album about self-discovery and it is her most personal offering to date. It is honest, emotional and intrinsically political. Track Listing:1. Native Tongue (Feat. Pasefika Vitoria Choir2. Papa (Tagalog Interlude)3. Something Wrong4. Think Twice5. Bound To6.

Best Queensland band of all time” - ABC Radio Brisbane Rain Lover was co-produced by Nashville art rock recording legend Mark Nevers. HALFWAY have previously recorded with renowned producers Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens), Peter Jesperson (The Replacements) andMark Nevers (Lampchop). With a long history in the local and national music scene, fans can look forward to an album packed with tracks that are broadly universal yet remain devastatingly personal; the album is a story of big dreams, conflict, addiction and disappointment with the narrative using central characters which are real people from Rockhampton in the 60’s, 70s, 80s. Previous albums ‘Any Old Love’ (2014) and ‘The Golden Halfway Record’ (2016) both received 5 star reviews in national press, an AIR Award for Country album of the year (2015) and received a nomination for an APRA award and won three QMA awards including Song of the year in 2015 for the song Dulcify from the album ‘Any Old Love’. Halfway describe themselves: “The band is like a face, showing all the stuff that the years have piled on. One day you’re just a kid, screaming around in the summer dark, and then you do what you do, roads less travelled or waking up in the ditch, but keeping on.Then every now and then, in the midst of it all, you look in the mirror and it’s all there. These albums are like those mirror moments.
“Together, we are better. That simple understanding sits at the heart of the Hush project.”Developed by medical pioneer Dr Catherine Crock AM to reduce the stress and anxiety felt by young patients and their families in hospitals, the Hush music collection transforms that difficult environment with carefully curated music from some of Australia’s foremost musicians and talents, and is now played in hospitals and homes across the globe.ABC Classics is proud to announce the release of Volume 18 in the Hush series, Collective Wisdom, performed by the musicians of ACO Collective, the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s mentoring and regional touring ensemble.For this project, Hush sent twelve Australian composers to do residencies and workshops in adolescent health units in Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth: established composers Stuart Greenbaum, Matthew Hindson, Maria Grenfell, Paul Stanhope, Elena Kats-Chernin and James Ledger fostering these rewarding experiences with six emerging composers, Caerwen Martin, Katia Beaugeais, Thomas Misson, Natalie Nicolas, Rachel Bruerville and Olivia Bettina Davies. The composers and the teenagers played music together, talked, shared experiences and explored how music might help people during hard times.Based on what they saw, heard and learnt during those collaborative sessions, the twelve composers then wrote the pieces that appear on this disc. The music is honest and heartfelt, acknowledging the fears and anxieties of the hospital experience yet full of hope, joy and optimism. As composers Caerwen Martin and Stuart Greenbaum point out, ‘Music can remind patients that they are more than their illness…and what they might be when they are better.’This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. The project has also been supported by the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund.
