“‘Would I’ is about the inner struggles you face when dealing with mental illness, mine being depression for this song,” says Maggie. “It’s about not feeling good enough, not feeling like you deserve love or happiness, struggling with how to find yourself and trying to find happiness in substances. Going out every night to forget real life or even forget your name. It’s just about feeling hopeless and wanting a way out. I want people to realise mental health IS very serious. People need to stop being so hard on each other and start loving on each other.”

In a new collaboration, Holly Herndon & Jlin have released 'Godmother' out now via 4AD / Remote Control.
"For the past two years, we have been building an ensemble in Berlin.
One member is a nascent machine intelligence we have named Spawn. She is being raised by listening to and learning from her parents, and those people close to us who come through our home or participate at our performances.
Remote Control Records in partnership with Emergency Music are proud to announce the reissue ofSigns Of Satanic Youth by Magic Dirt. Signs Of Satanic Youth was originally released in November 1993 on vinyl as a double 7" single and also on CD. Both have long been out of print and the tracks featured have never been available to stream on DSPs.
Signs Of Satanic Youth is available to stream and download now. Two 12” vinyl editions (coloured and classic black) and a CD edition will be available from Friday 18th January 2019.
Magic Dirt explain - "The reissue of Signs Of Satanic Youth is particularly significant as it was a project spearheaded by Dean (Turner) and was a long held dream of his that we are now so proud to be able to realise. To have it available to the public after almost 25 years and for the first time on 12” vinyl is a momentous occasion for the band and we are so happy to be able to share this part of our legacy."

Hailing from Ballarat and now firmly rooted in the Melbourne Music scene, Way Dynamic are influenced by the classic and offbeat songwriting of yesteryear (Carol King, Brian Wilson respectively), and yet their sound is strangely refreshing and modern. Young’s songwriting and composition combine oddball arrangements with lyrical poetism that is both introspective and engaging. In it’s current formation the Way Dynamic live band features members of Totally Mild, Tam Vantage, The Ocean Party, Great Outdoors, ESC and Emma Russack, and the group are unified by their love of music and of each other.
"The group, led by Melbourne multi-instrumentalist Dylan Young (who also drums in Totally Mild), create a charming guitar-backed sound on their debut, mixing brilliant songwriting and lyricism with elements of indie, pop, folk and even Beach Boys-esque nostalgia, for a track that sets on them on a good path for their debut EP"
You can order What’s It All For Now on limited edition rubine red cassette tape over at the Our Golden Friend bandcamp page right HERE.
This is Banoffee's the first batch of work that looks outside of self. The songs remain dark, but instead of wallowing in dread, they seek to inspire contentment. Banoffee is interested in the future of a more hyper textualised vein of pop, one that pushes its listeners outside of their comfort zone.
