If you haven’t heard already, local legends The Do Yo Thangs are releasing their debut EP on September 9th called ‘One Plus One’! Anticipation on this one is high as years ago the band teased at a release, but nothing came… not until now! Their first single ‘One Plus One‘ dropped a few weeks ago alongside a hypnotising dance video filmed in Brunswick West (check it out here).

The new single is more of a funky shuffle… check it premiering over at Happy right now!

‘La Despedida’ by San Lazaro out on LP/CD!



La Despedida – San Lazaro’s recent LP. A psychedelic, post- apocalyptic meta-breakup album by a band that has broken up more than once. For over a decade, San Lazaro have been playing and writing original Latin music in Melbourne. A tribe of lost Latinos, cobbled together from all over the Spanish speaking world. From Chile to Cuba to Catalonia, they’ve come together at the Southern end of Australia to sing the songs they needed to sing and tell the stories they needed to tell.

The album has received feature album by ABC Radio National, PBS FM, Eastside Radio as well as multiple features through other Australian community radio and online.


The Do Yo Thangs release new video for ‘One Plus One’!

‘One Plus One’ by The Do Yo Thangs is here! The much anticipated single from Melbourne R&B/Slow jammers was released to the world through a Bandcamp premiere last Friday, and is the first glimpse at their upcoming EP which is due September 9th.

The influences behind San Lazaro’s ‘La Despedida’

San Lazaro’s second album ‘La Despedida’ is about to drop (Friday 22nd July)!! In celebration the band put together a playlist that highlights influence and inspiration behind the writing and recording of the LP. Dig in…

PREMIERE | San Lazaro’s psyche cumbia track ‘La Ola’


La Ola is the second single from San Lazaro’s ‘La Despedida’ Album. A bouncing piece of psychedelic garage cumbia featuring twangy guitars, ‘down the well’ echo vocals and bumping oompah bass. 

Heavily influenced by the “Chicha” sound of 1970s Peru and the classic cumbias of Colombia’s Discos Fuentes label, La Ola is the tale of a fickle love that comes and goes like the tides and the waves. 

Digital cumbia has become one of the great dance music movements of the 21st century. La Ola goes back in time to the genre’s roots and connects them to the future. San Lazaro’s ‘La Despedida’ album is available on 22nd of July.
