  • This week's local feature album is this week is Something About The Light from @tracey.read.

Over the last few decades, local singer-songwriter Tracey Read has made a name for herself releasing four acclaimed solo albums, as well as being a part of Perth favourites The Wine-Dark Sea, and she's back in fine form with her latest solo full-length Something About the Light. Across 12 heartfelt tracks, collaborating with fellow local musician Hugh Jennings, Something About the Light, read pairs softly strummed acoustic guitars with her enchanting, sincere vocals to create beautifully earnest indie pop, with a hint of alt-folk here and there. With an Eastern States tour planned for next year, and plans for a new record from The Wine-Dark Sea, Something About the Light marks an important, fruitful part of Read's career in extremely fine style.
  • Our RTRFM feature is Giant Swan from @giant_swan.

Formed in Bristol's vibrant melting pot of soundsystem culture, rock, drum and bass and avant-garde sounds, Giant Swan have been honing their unique blend of sounds for over half a decade, following up a string of EPs with their impressive debut, self-titled album. A logical culmination of the sounds of their previous releases, Giant Swan sees the duo fusing the manic, fuzzy, industrial-tinged techno intensity with a fresh depth and range. Immersive droning synths meet intense percussion, all with a pleasingly, fitting distorted edge to the production, with a raw and free-flowing approach to composition and arrangement, forgoing the more formulaic approach to techno usually employed. Heavy, pounding kick drums meet reverb-soaked vocal samples that float above hectic percussion, fuzzy guitars and hyperactive synths. Giant Swan's aim with their debut album was to leave "everyone in the room scratching their heads, or moving their feet," both of which the record more than achieves, in the best possible way.
