MnthlyTrx: June 2017

Each month, I search through my PlayMusic account, SoundCloud, websites and other media to put together a list of tracks I have come across and liked.  For 12 months, this has been hidden in my own PlayMusic account, so now I thought I’d publish my lists here for further sharing.

The frustration on radio today – especially here in Adelaide – is the main commercial stations just play the same tracks and same artists over and over again.  It feels like only tracks by Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and The Chainsmokers make our stations tick lately.  If they get really excited, we might get a track by The Chainsmokers feat. Ed Sheeran – you get the drift!

Most of my lists will hopefully have some interesting artists you probably won’t hear on Nova or Hit!.  Occasionally the mainstream will appear here where there is some undisputed talent, but for most part I hope you can find a track or two on each list which might be a fresh beat, setting you off on your own journey searching for related artists to find further pots of gold.

So, here’s some tracks for June 2017…


  • Cookin’ On 3 Burners – Push It Up (feat. Kylie Auldist)
  • Winston Surfshirt – Ali D
  • The Jungle Giants – On Your Way Down
  • Nothing But Thieves – Amsterdam
  • San Cisco – Hey, Did I Do You Wrong?
  • Kasabian – Ill Ray (The King)
  • Vince Staples – Big Fish
  • Gorillaz – Ascension (feat. Vince Staples)
  • Kim Churchill – Breakneck Speed
  • Love Deluxe – Cool Breeze Over The Mountains
  • Milky Chance – Blossom
  • Foster The People – Pay The Man
  • ODESZA – Line Of Sight
  • Allday – In Motion (feat. Japanese Wallpaper)
  • Pierce Brothers – Take Me Out
  • Kyle Lionhart – Call Back Home
  • Bernard Fanning – Shed My Skin
  • Luke Yeoward – Ghosts
  • Dean Lewis – Need You Now
  • King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Sleep Drifter
  • Royal Blood – Lights Out
  • K.Flay – High Enough
  • Gorillaz – Strobelite (feat. Peven Everett)
  • Nick Murphy – Your Time (feat. Kaytranada)

  • Tash Sultana – Murder To The Mind
  • Sloan Peterson – 105
  • HAIM – Want You Back
  • Diet Cig – Maid Of The Mist
  • Kilter – I Hear You
  • Phoenix – J-Boy

It’s probably a bigger list than most months, given I’ve had some additional time on my side recently to check out more new music!!  Most months should see around 15-20 tracks picked.

Enjoy the listening…
