Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Crooked Colours

Perth-based trio Philip Slabber, Leon De Baughn and Liam Merrett-Park have been steadily building a rep for turning audiences on with full-bodied electro-indie. Tracks to date like “Moontan Nocturnal” and “Come Down” are full of dark thrills, interesting hooks and edgy, infectious synthlines.


Paris-based DJ and producer Hugues Rey has been lots of admiring glances thanks to slinky, bass-ful releases like “When I Look”. The former rapper was previously associated with the well-respected Institubes’ label and is now working on Marble Music wth Para One and Surkin.

Mo Parker

The spinetingling, bare-bones, blues-tinged electro-soul on “Fold” from the Newcastle singer augers well for the long-run. With production help from Lulu James collaborator Domzilla, “Fold” is an alluring wash of old and new influences and makes you hanker to hear more.
