The prestigious and highly-coveted Australian Music Prize has unveiled its official shortlist today. Beginning with an 85-album Longlist made up of Australia’s strongest and most beloved records for the year, the prize’s shortlist is now down to just 9 of Australia’s most important releases of 2018.

2018’s shortlist once again sees the true artist breadth of Australian music; from Gurrumul’s posthumous orchestral release ‘Djarimirri’ to Courtney Barnett’s indie pop tome ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ to The Presets’ self-described “Pub Rock Techno” album ‘Hi Viz’. Then there’s Abbe May’s sexy funk on ‘Fruit’, Dead Can Dance’s art-rock masterpiece ‘Dionysus’, dream-pop songwriter Laura Jean’s ‘Devotion’ and the baroque-folk of Grand Salvo and their record ‘Sea Glass’.  The instrumental jazz stylings of Sam Anning’s ‘Across A Field As Vast as One’ and rock of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s ‘Hope Downs’ rounds out perhaps the most eclectic list in the Australian Music Prize’s 14 year history.

As each year starts to tick by you think it’ll be easier than the last to settle on the nine. Then the excellent albums start to stack up and the judging panel is again faced with a Herculean task of collectively agreeing – and 2018 was no different,” said judge and journalist Kate Hennessy.

Even as people who listen constantly to Australian music, the judges are always surprised by new discoveries, which are by no means always new artists, either. This discovery is one of the prize’s most rewarding and important roles. We are all really proud of the breadth of Australian music evidenced by this year’s shortlist.”

The AMP Shortlist transcends genre, popularity and politics, with 21 judges – including artistsjournalists, retailers, programmers and more – selecting the best Australian albums of the year based solely on artistic merit. The AMP Shortlist proves the virility and importance of the album format as it continues to boldly wave the flag as an artistic counterpoint to on-demand single track consumption.

“Looking at the Shortlist as a judge, what’s thrilling isn’t just that there were more than 400 albums from which to choose and somehow we got it down to 9, but that the best of 2018 had such breadth as well as depth. Said Australian Music Prize judge Bernard Zuel. “From neo-classical intersecting with traditional indigenous and a record which captured the sounds of the world as heard through Australian ears to electronica with a hard edge, jazz and rock, there was so much to sink teeth into. How good is it that artists still see what an album can do?

With past winners including The DronesA.B. Original, Courtney Barnett, Sampa the Great, Lisa Mitchell and The Jezabels, the Australian Music Prize awards the year’s best album $30,000 courtesy of its principal partner PPCA and is respected along with global contemporaries including the UK’s Mercury Prize and Canada’s Polaris Prize.

Dan Rosen, Chief Executive PPCA said “On behalf of PPCA, I would like to congratulate the nine artists that have made it through to the shortlist of the 14th Australian Music Prize. All of them have produced remarkable albums. We look forward to presenting the winner with their $30,000 prize money in March.”

The judges will meet in Melbourne on March 7th to decide upon a winner of the 14th Annual Australian Music Prize.

The winner will be revealed at a special ceremony in Melbourne on the same day.

While on writing trip to New York, vocalist & songwriter, Rusty Brown, visited the Jimi Hendrix founded Electric Lady Recording Studios. 

It was there that the infamous studio manager “Electric Mary Campbell” entered his life .. story after story of the rock history that wandered through the studio’s had Rusty’s head spinning, his direction was clear, and it now had a name “ELECTRIC MARY”.

Since then, Electric Mary have become globally renowned for their explosive brain-bending live performances and at home in Australia are regarded as one of, if not the best live bands in the country.

This Melbourne band have held their own while sharing the world’s stages with some of the most revered names in hard rock. Whitesnake took them on the road, Judas Priest asked them to support, Deep Purple had them in stadiums, England, France, Spain and Japan came calling…KissAlice Cooper, MotorheadDef Leppard all followed and even after 10 years on the road Electric Mary continue to impress rock music fans and media across the planet.

2008’s album, Down To The Bone received rave reviews around the world, including Rock Album Of The Year ahead of releases by Metallica and Queen by the UK’s
Birmingham Mail.

The band ’s third album simply entitled ’III’ became a milestone in the genre as Rocktopia reviewed:  ” Already one of the more promising bands to have hit the scene in the last few years, ‘III’ keeps up Electric Mary’s high standards and is an album that deserves to see them make the next step into the big boys’ playground. “.

Classic Rock Magazine (UK) enthusiastically concluded ” ‘III’ is exactly the kind of album it should be mandatory for every CR reader to own“.

in 2014 , The band released the infamous ‘ The Last Great Hope’ mini album featuring live hits like ‘Sweet Mary C’ and the astoundingly moody ‘ Already Gone’. Next came their live album ‘Alive in HELLDorado’ which was recorded over 2 Sold Out nights in The Basque Country in Spain. Mixed in Texas by American Producer The Machine (White Zombie, Clutch and King Crimson).

The album is a testament to the bands killer live shows and it’s no wonder they already number Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, Judas Priest and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt among their growing number of admirers.

10 years, three studio Albums… a live album … three E.P’s… dozens of American and European tours… broken teeth, broken bones & broken records 2019 will see “The Mary’s” release their 4th studio long player ‘Mother’ and once again head across the globe to tour their unique Australian brand of take no prisoners Rock N Roll.

Catfish and The Bottlemen’s third album will be titled The Balance, set for release on Friday 26th April via Island Records / Caroline Australia. In a rush of confirmations following the successful release of new single, ‘Longshot’, earlier this month, it’s now known that the new album release will be closely followed by a run of live shows across UK and Europe. See album tracklist and cover art below.

The guarded four-piece remained tight-lipped during the recording sessions for their new album, but now offer further insights into the new material set to soundtrack their journey onto yet bigger stages.

In the breaks between electrifying outdoor and festival shows in 2018, including Australia’s own Falls Festival over the New Year, Van McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert ‘Bob’ Hall (drums) and Benji Blakeway (bass) retreated with Irish producer, Jacknife Lee, to carefully craft The Balance over a 12-month period. Recorded in seclusion at two locations:Grouse Lodge, in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and The Chapel in the countryside of East Lincolnshire, the band lived and breathed the album while residing together in rural isolation. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey.

“We loved living in the same place,” says McCann. “We were staying there the whole time, so we were waking up around each other and working until we needed to go to bed. Jacknife was always up. He was the first up and the last awake. It’s good when you’re completely engulfed in recording in a place like that, living together, because every day and all day it was about the songs. We had fun too; they were the funniest album sessions we’ve done.”

 

In addition to the album name and familiar, one-word song titling, the creative bridge between 2014’s platinum-certified debut, The Balcony and it’s gold follow up, The Ride, has been reinforced by Catfish returning to San Francisco-based, graphic artist, Tim Lahan to provide cover artwork for a third time. The playful, monochromatic line drawing of a drinking toucan provides observers with no shortage of mystery to unravel as to the artwork’s inspirations and significance.

‘Longshot’ is warmly welcomed in Australia, where the track sits at #5 Most Played on triple j, following a first play on Breakfast with Ben and Liam. Watch the dramatic, one-take birds-eye video, filmed by long-term collaborator, Jim Canty (‘Hourglass’ and ‘Twice’) below…

New album The Balance follows 2014’s platinum-certified debut, The Balcony and Top 10 ARIA Chart successor The Ride (2016), including lead single ‘7’, which hit Gold status in Australia last April.

Port Augusta based Metalcore outfit Alda Sky have just released a brand new music video ‘Odium’.

‘Reflections’ was also voted as the Best SA Heavy Release on ‘MOSH’ – Radio Adelaide in 2017. Various tracks from the EP were aired on radio stations across Australia, including Triple J.
