Australia Rocks – Seven From Down Under

We’ve covered quite a lot of awesome music from Australia here – from Rice Is Nice Records, The Dunes, to Royal Chant and Them Bruins, there’s a pretty great scene going on down under.

I was intrigued and decided to check out the site Triple J – Unearthed – a division of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and purveyors of Australian music.
After a couple of hours clicking and listening – I thought I’d share some of the tracks that stood out for me. Who knows, maybe there will be a few ‘Meet the Bands’ in the future!

Enjoy!
