  • RTRFM features are back.. We kick off 2018 with two absolutely pearlers. 
The RTRFM Feature come from The Green Child, a new duo comprised of one of the most ubiquitous people in alternative Australian music, audio engineer and musician extraordinaire Mikey Young (Eddy Current Supression Ring, @total.control) and American muso Raven Mahon (Grass Widow, Bridge Collapse), born out of the 2 playing in their respective bands at the same gig in California in 2013. 
Nearly 5 years later, they present their debut, self-titled album, inspired by Herbert Read's iconic 1935 sci-fi novel The Green Child.
  • RTRFM features are back.. We kick off 2018 with two absolutely pearlers. 
Local comes from The Fruity Whites, everyones favourite box-wine themed group The Fruity Whites follow up 2013's Goon Songs with the awesome (and awesomely titled) B.Y.O'Connor - 10 tracks of delightfully infectious indie-folk meets alt-country with a very healthy dose of slacker bedroom pop vibes. 
Check them and our first sound selection for 2018 at our website.
