The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) invites music directors to highlight new Aussie tunes that you might have missed.

Community radio music directors often have an encyclopedic knowledge of local music and an insatiable thirst to keep their ears ahead of the curve. So in this Tone Deaf series, the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) invites music directors to highlight new Aussie tunes that you might have missed.

In this edition, Aeron Clark from Edge Radio in Hobart contributes with a selection of tracks currently making their way to community radio through Amrap’s music distribution service ‘AirIt’. Check out Aeron’s selections below and if you’re a musician you can apply here to have your music distributed for free to community radio on Amrap’s AirIt.

Foxy Morons – ‘Ex’

Foxy Morons have been together for less than a year, but that hasn’t stopped them from delivering one of the standout tracks from the wonderful Community 4 compilation released last month.

‘Ex’ is woozy dream-pop and sugary vocal harmonies, paired with lyrics which, while being incredibly poignant, are delivered with a rawness that is almost heartbreakingly matter-of-fact.  It’s sweet, and it’s an excellent encapsulation of small town claustrophobia.
