Russo 
Releases new single
 'Something Else' 


RUSSO has released a intensifying new single titled 'Something Else'. With her dreamy expression and electrifying dark, mysteries beats she has released a single that is meant to be played LOUD, it is definitely one to impact!.

She started loving music at a ripe age of 7 years old and then as she grew up she was singing Brigitte Bardot and Edith Piaf in burlesque bars around Sydney. She has also collaborated with hip-hop producers and supporting acts such as ‘Dune and Kira Puru and the Bruise’.

Lyrically, Something Else is inspired by the feeling of longing for something else, another love. Ben (Nebz) provided RUSSO with a beat and the chorus is inspired by pop kings Michael Jackson & Prince.

Upcoming Shows:

7th November – Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory
29th November – The Sly Fox, Enmore

 NUMBER STATION
 ANNOUNCE NEW EP
'Back Street'


Indie rock/pop group Number Station are stoked to announce the forthcoming release of their sophomore EP, Back Seat

Mixed by acclaimed US producer/mixer Chris Coady (Future Islands, Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Back Seat explores the personal through universal themes of everyday life: a celebration of friends, an expression of unspoken gratitude for loved ones and a questioning of consumer culture are amongst the themes.

The Ep involves a solid mix of funky tunes with catchy guitar riffs, smooth vocals and rhythms that will hook your mind. It's a very easy listening Ep by the lads that presents qualities that are fresh and exciting. A definite favourite of ours is 'Get Out On Your Own.'

Number Station will officially launch the EP in Melbourne with a FREE show at the St Kilda Bowls Club.

THE BABE RAINBOW - PLANET JUNIOR
INTERVIEW: AXE GIRL 
Kristy has a chat to Axe Girl, chatting about their new killer album and getting into the nitty gritty of the Music Industry in Australia and what a rad bunch Axe Girl really are on!


1)   Hey hey, thanks for taking time to answer our questions!
 No worries!

2)   Well done on the release of your new album ! You guys are currently on tour promoting it, are you enjoying the response you are getting from playing your new songs live so far?
Yeah it's been a really awesome experience so far. It's really great playing songs when the audience know them from the record as the response is really immediate.

3)   How was it producing your new album, was it a hectic experience?
Writing and recording the album was a really cruisey experience as we didn't have a deadline and knew we weren't going to stop until we had everything exactly as we wanted it. Releasing it was another story though! We made the decision that we wanted to release and distribute it ourselves on our own SODAcat label, but that proved to be an enormous undertaking, particularly for a bunch of novices like ourselves! The last month has been crazy hectic, but worth every minute, as it's been a real rewarding and creative way of putting the record out.

4)   What was your main drive of inspiration helping you produce your new album?
 We wrote the songs so naturally and before long we had this body of work that seemed to fit together so naturally that it felt like the right time to do it. Most of the songs are influenced by events that have happened to me in the last 2 years.

5)   Axe Girl has an ultimate pop punk vibe that is very respectful to that specific scene, what music/artist inspire you to make music?
I'm sure each of us in the band would give very different answers, but for me (Addison) bands like Distillers, Juliette and the Licks, No Doubt, Pretenders, Yeah yeah yeahs, PJ Harvey are all massive influences.

6)   If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be and why?
 My band mates, because they are awesome. And that is why I am the luckiest person EVER.

7)   How do you see Independent Australian Bands in the Australian music industry to date and it’s future? Do you believe it is getting the recognition it deserves or does it need more work?
I think the independent music scene is thriving in Australia, there are heaps of insanely amazing bands that you can see any night of the week if you like live music. We've had tremendous support from street press and community radio, so have been very lucky, and we work very hard at trying to be a good band! 

Whether bands get the recognition they deserve is hard to define though as it depends on your opinion of what that means. All bands want their music to be heard obviously, but the reason we do it is because it's all we can do, and we love it so we'd be doing it regardless, and if people get a kick out of it, all the better. 

8)   We have reached the end of the interview; do you have any exciting news you would like to share with us?
I just got a new phone and it is the best thing that ever happened to me. No joke. I also saw the big Marino in Golburn. That shits real.
