  • Songwriting Tip: Understanding the Most Common Song Structures

    When I first started writing songs, I went through a phase where I had no regard for song structure. I thought to myself “Everyone writes a verse then a chorus, then another verse and another chorus. That’s so bland. I want to be different!” So I wrote a few songs that would start with one section, then go to new section, then a third new section, then a fourth and so on. You couldn’t even label these sections as verses or choruses because they’d show...

  • Interview with Sounds Like Sunset

    After 9 years since their Invisible album, Sounds Like Sunset have returned with another full length record. Tomatrax caught up with David Challinor from the band to ask a few questions. It’s been around 9 years since your last full length album, what have you been doing over this time? We’ve been pretty busy. Just doing heaps of shows on & off, recording on & off when we can or when we feel like something’s worthy of being committed to tape...

  • Jim Suhler – Panther Burn

    “Throw your garter on the dash and hang on tight/We’ll follow our muse and drive all night,” sings Dallas blues artist Jim Suhler, addressing his shotgun rider on “Panther Burn” –- the title track of his latest CD, and just like that he’s off and running, surrounding the listener with his swampy guitar licks and lived-in tenor. Recorded in Garland, Texas on the Underworld Records label, 13 of the 14 songs here are written by Suhler. This is the fifth release with his solid band ...

  • Touring Abroad: Tips for Indie Musicians

    I’m a professional French singer-songwriter, originally from Paris, France, now based in Portland, Oregon. I tour in the US, Canada, and France. I’ve also been fortunate to play in Ireland, and a little bit in Australia. I’ve always played solo gigs in those countries and know the French market best. So I’ll mainly focus on that in this article. Here are a few tips I’ve learned from touring abroad that Chris from CD Baby asked me to share with you. I hope it helps...

  • Firekites – Closing Forever Sky

    What do you call someone from Newcastle? No idea. Anyway, Firekites have a new record. Listen to it. Firekites are a group that truly defy categorisation into a genre. Actually, they defy most of the typical characteristics of popular music. After their debut earned high praise for an all-round elaborate approach, the revolving collective of musos are poised to release their second album. With the mere seven tracks of indie-folk-meets-lo-fi-jazz-meets-electronica weighing in at...

  • What You Really Need to Know About Releasing Music on Vinyl

    Vinyl’s making a comeback (just ask Stanton). Whether it’s about turntablists and DJs, sound, nostalgia, artwork, or all of the above, vinyl is a medium that refuses to just lie down and roll over in a bar fight with digital audio. However, because many musicians who want to release their music on vinyl weren’t even born when the CD became popular and shoved vinyl aside in record stores (yes, there used to be stores dedicated to selling...

  • Guerilla Toss- 367 Equalizer

    While Guerilla Toss sounds kind of like a violent video game* featuring silent and subtle political messages, it is in reality the name of a bass-booming, quirky band from Boston, Massachusetts. Asian pop has finally met its match against the vivid mess of noise that is Guerilla Toss. Their sound is as equally thrilling, and colourfully dynamic as a Nintendo 64 Game. Mesmerising yet chaotic the band breathe a fiery haze of life and colour into their new 4-track...

  • Allison Crutchfield – Lean Into It

    No but seriously, though. You may know this lady from her previous work with her sister Katie Crutchfield in a band called the Ackleys. They since split ways to work on solo stuff, Allison with the now pivotal alternative rock band Swearin and her sister with equally ground-breaking band Waxahatchee. She’s just released an EP which was mostly made herself in her bedroom...
