As a warm welcome to March and the Autumnal change here in Australia, we felt it was a perfect time to put together another mixtape to share some of our favourite tunes with you for the coolest season of the year.
This playlist showcases some of our favourite new releases, golden oldies, local favourites and highlights from some of our favourite gigs last month, including Wet, Highasakite and Tkay Maidza. Overall the mix has a rather warm and 70s inspired sound and is perfect to listen to as you soak up the sun in the last few weeks of warmth we have left.
Check it out here or on Spotify Cool Change:

The Standard Bowl is my new favourite venue in Sydney. There is bowling, there is live music, there is alcohol, there is a pool table, downstairs there is Johnny Wongs Dumpling Bar and it is free entry…what more could you ask for?
There have already been some great gigs, including D.D Dumbo, The Griswolds and I Know Leopard keep, with a gig line up that is updated weekly, this is the place to be on a Saturday night in Sydney.
The vibe: Grungy 50’s style arcade. It is very cool, and you will instantly feel a bit cooler by just stepping inside.
What to drink: $7 PBR Cans. Pretty standard drinks menu.
Who you’ll see there: Hipster hotties, gig goers, people having fun.
When’s best to go: It is definitely best to go on a busy night because the atmosphere is much more exciting (so Friday or Saturday) also the gigs are generally better on these nights. But if you are just going for a bowling sesh go Thursday, there will be less of a crowd to take away from your bowling time. You can spend a long time in this place and not get bored, so plan to spend most of your night here.
Venue in a song: “Twist and Shout” by The Beatles
Tonight Service Bells and Claws and Organs are playing, why not check it out?

In preparation for their debut album, Shy Glow, to be released in June as part of the Vivid Sydney light festival, Sydney duo Fishing have given us a bit of a taster for things to come with their track Chi Glow.
The verdict: it is tasty. With flavours of their usual ambient electronic sound and a unique digression into hip hop, this is something special. These two are genre-defying, producing rebels-without-a-cause, and we’re sure this is something we’ll see more of in their record.
If you want to be the first to hear Fishing’s new album, head on down to The Basement in Sydney on 5 June for their launch party.
