Renowned for pumping out high-energy jams & ferocious live shows, Melbourne genre-benders The Delta Riggs traveled to NYC late last year to showcase their wares for the industry gold fish bowl know as CMJ Music Marathon.

Combining the talents of brothers Lachlan (guitar and vocals) and Leigh Ewbank (drums) as well as Ali Edmonds (bass) Damn Terran have rightfully earned a reputation for being one of Melbourne’s most incendiary live bands.
‘Rational Economic Man’ is four minutes of addictive tension and release. Anger and control play out meticulously in staccato chords, stop/start rhythms and Ewbank’s melodic yet virulent vocals.
To capture Rational Economic Man’s raucous glory, Damn Terran invited dedicated fans and curious punters to a Melbourne warehouse for the filming of its accompanying video clip. The entire clip was shot using head-cameras worn by the band and members of the audience, resulting in a realistic view of both band and fan alike.
Sampology mixes YouTube clips, exerts from films, TV shows and vintage VHS finds, turning your ordinary club night into a crazy AVDJ mashup.
The technical aspect to Sampology’s Super Visual AVDJ shows is pretty darned impressive. He’s madly manipulating video via two turntables and a mixer and triggering animations from his drum machine, all projected live onto a big-ass widescreen. But it’s Sampology’s cheeky sense of humour, sprinkled across the exerts from film and TV shows, filmclips, YouTube clips and vintage VHS finds that takes your ordinary club night and turns it into a stupidly exciting and crazy fun visual mashup.
“New Orleans… 1951… a bar full of genius players – double dealing, sweet talking players with more on their mind than numbers – converge where the hustlers lay on the sugar thicker than the cheap wine that flows in the back rooms of the gambling halls. Eyes shift to the white girl who is obviously lost, or from out of town. And as soon as the timpani plays and she grabs the microphone, her voice moves from pariah to Princess of the Pleasure Dome. A coincidence? No, not really…”
‘Back It Up’ is the sound of swapped glances across a crowded dancefloor. It’s the sound of a party that begins late and carries on until the sun rises. It’s a song about dancing, flirting and a declaration of independence. With her debut single, Caro Emerald announces herself with the sort of sassy, whipsmart pop that will have the likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson pricking up their ears. Her smouldering vocals update the classic Americano sound with a contemporary sheen and suggestive lyrics over a melting pot of sounds and influences – yet the sound is entirely, inimitably that of an exciting new artist.
