This week saw the release of three spectacular albums, all from acts in different stages of their musical careers.
We got the debut album from Liam McGorry’s new project Ex-Olympian. Incorporating his own dream funk sound, Afterlife started as a quest to do more on one’s own. The process unveiled the realisation that music is truly a series of collaborations to be enjoyed together.

The Phoenix Foundation released their latest album Friend Ship after 5 years between albums. This album is rooted in friendship, hence the title. They have brought in a number of different styles and voices in the form of guest contributions.

Finally, the latest Cut Off Your Hands album wraps up a career spanning nearly 15 years. In HLLH elements of funk and dance music interweave with the soulful croon of lead vocalist Nick Johnston. Both the importance of loving each other and the complexities of human relationship are exposed under the guise of head-bopping summer anthems.
