Sydney band The Laurels are back with a brand new single, the first off their forthcoming new LP Sonicology, due out October 14th via Rice Is Nice Records. Reentry finds the band exploring more groove and more psychedelia with shades of Primal Scream and a baggy Manchester vibe in its loping rhythm.

Sydney’s electro lothario Donny Benet returns with his second album Electric Love (out now via Rice is Nice) and if you thought his schtick wouldn’t last beyond one album then think again. We’ll have a review up soon but Electric Love is a real step up from the debut with tracks stretched into jams that sound like The Pointer Sisters jamming with Suicide. There is a greater focus on the instrumentation and some glorious sax solos. Check out the first single Gimme Your Heat
