Eargasm of the Week: “By the Ocean” by Dusty Boots

Sydney’s DUSTY BOOTS is Jonny Dustow, an Australian teacher, adventurer, and musician and his song light and airy song by life “By the Ocean” is an autobiographical reflection about the life of adventure he shares with his wife as REBEL ON A RAINBOW.

Track of the Day: “One” by Circle

It’s been 2 years since Sydney duo, CIRCLE, released a studio single and they’ve returned with the single, “One.” My ever loving 80’s synthpop heart has fallen for this track.

LISTEN: “If You Wanna Stay” by The Griswolds

“If You Wanna Stay” is on The Griswolds forthcoming album BE IMPRESSIVE, out on August 25th via Wind Up Records. This little band from Sydney (AUS) is infectious, catchy, and fun. We can’t wait to get our hands on the album. If you pre-order the album off of iTunes now, you’ll get “Right on Track,” “Beware the Dog” and “Down and Out”. We highly recommend this because “Down and Out” needs to be played at one volume: 11. The Griswolds: Facebook | Twitter | Website Continue reading LISTEN: “If You Wanna Stay” by The Griswolds
