Freedom Of Fire Sparks Back Into Life

20 years after Australian band Freedom Of Fire burned the masters of their debut album 'The Internet Is A Fad' (because by the time the album was ready for release, the internet surely was not a fad,  FoF are now quietly releasing new EPs to YouTube and Soundcloud.

No indication given if this is recently recorded music, or hauled from an archive. But there's a lot of Freedom of Fire music around now, suddenly, for a band that never officially released a single.

Australian Music Is Rising Again

New Australian musician and singer, Rhyme. On the rise.

Taking time recently to listen around to dozens of new Australian bands, singers, has been incredibly rewarding and exciting. The diversity of genres and levels of experimentation Australian musicians are taking on is breath-taking. Gut feeling says we're about to see a new wave of Aussie acts breaking internationally, but not just in US, UK, but across South East Asia.

Will be highlighting some of these excellent new Australian musicians and singers in the months ahead. Sometimes just a tease, with a follow-up later.

Here's one new singer definitely worth hearing now. Rhyme. Still only a few independent singles into her career, she is advancing rapidly as she continues to record, write and experiment. She's on Facebook here.
