Jumping The SharkMy name is Alex Cameron and I won't waste your time. When you're talking about me and my business partner, Roy Molloy, you're talking about the online cowboys in the wild-west days of the World Wide Web. And if you want to know what we're really about just look at all the things you wish you'd done differently. All the things you stopped yourself from doing on account of the fear of failure, or rejection. Weigh that up against your ambitions. Think about your work ethic. We're reclaiming failure as an act of progress. An act of learning. Something to celebrate.
A word's meaning can change depending on who utters the thing; and so we present characters - shapes are morphed and stories are delivered. This is a collection of 4-minute tales written to provide you with insight into the inner workings of failed ambitions and self-destruction. Unedited, uncensored, and without inhibition. I've learned to reveal what I want to unlearn. I cast a light on the darkness and in doing so understand love and compassion. Fear is to be confronted, and to learn requires failure - over and over. Celebrate failure with Jumping The Shark.1. Happy Ending

Wonderful WonderfulWonderful Wonderful is The Killers' fifth studio album and features the top 10 Alternative hit The Man.
Brandon Flowers revealed in May 2015 that he and guitarist Dave Keuning were exchanging ideas for The Killers' fifth studio album. The four members reconvened in October 2015, a few months earlier than originally planned. The band began work on the album at their own Battle Born Studios and also rented houses in Joshua Tree National Park and San Diego. They briefly recorded with Ryan Tedder and other producers in Los Angeles before beginning work with Jacknife Lee, who had been recommended to them by U2 frontman Bono. Lee worked with the band between September 2016 and May 2017 at his home studio in Topanga, California, and at National SouthWestern Recording studios in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lee produced all tracks on the album alongside The Killers, with Additional Production by Erol Alkan on The Man and Stuart Price on Out Of My Mind.
The Killers enlisted Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits) for a guitar part on Have All the Songs Been Written?. Additionally, Flowers wrote the lyrics for Some Kind of Love over music by Brian Eno. Australian artist Alex Cameron contributed lyrics to the track Run for Cover, which was originally written for the band's third studio album, Day & Age.1. Wonderful Wonderful

New SpiritPVT, known as Pivot to anyone in the know, are an act that's
embraced technology at every turn - gritty, new, confronting -
and their uncompromising songwriting and musical
understanding have seen their first four albums released to
global acclaim. After years of touring, the band wound up cast
far and wide, residing each in a different continent. 2017 sees
members Dave Miller along with brothers Richard & Laurence
Pike return home to Australia with their fifth album, New Spirit.
This album contains that beautiful type of music written out of
compulsion, a calling and an impulse to explore the new place
that Australia has become -- a hotbed for political and cultural
intolerance. The country has succumbed to divisive politics and
irrational fear. Obvious fraud and immorality driven by a gutless
media and an indifferent public.
PVT's uncompromising approach to musical self-determination
has never been this sharp, and especially never this political.
The sound of the record itself is that of a stark digital future, but
under the surface there's nostalgia for a different time, another
way of thinking, another life. PVT are exploring. Expanding on
expectations. They carry with them the bravery and courage of
the old explorer with the tolerance and understanding of the
new. And they want you to join them.

The HousePorches' third record The House is a conscious effort in minimalism and honesty. "Making
Pool"-the band's 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut-"I learned how valuable
the spirit of the demos are," says singer Aaron Maine, "so this time I made a point of
capturing a song the day it was conceived." Because of this desire to document immediate
sensations, the record's fourteen tracks offer a series of diaristic vignettes. There are
moments of emerging from fear of ego death ("Leave the House," "By My Side," "Now
The Water"), escaping the corporeal ("Now The Water," "Swimmer"), the terrifying thrill of
young love ("Country," "W Longing"), and parting with the past ("Wobble," "Goodbye").
While these themes possibly paint The House in a dark light, the record is marked by an
excitement at the prospect of self-discovery, and commitment to the process of getting
Though Aaron largely composes on his own, The House features contributions by Alexander
Giannascoli ((Sandy) Alex G), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), Maya Laner (True Blue, Porches),
Kaya Wilkins (Okay Kaya), Bryndon Cook (Starchild & the New Romantic), Cameron Wisch
(Cende, Porches), Jason Arce, Bea1991, and his own father, Peter Maine. As with Pool, Aaron
brought his recorded work to Chris Coady (Beach House, Slowdive, TV on the Radio), who
then mixed The House at his Sunset Sound studio.1. Leave The House

Smith WesternsRummaging through 1970s glam, Phil Spector teen-pop, and Nuggets garage-punk with the youthful abandon of kids finding new toys in the attic, the Smith Westerns' self-titled debut exudes an earnestness almost as pure as its recording levels are deafening. Their simple, sweet choruses about boys and girls in love could spike the punch at a 1970s TV show school dance.
When singing guitarist Cullen Omori, his bassist brother Cameron, second guitarist Max Kakacek, and a drummer known as Hal have the tunes to make themselves heard over their vintage aesthetic, The Smith Westerns' teenage kicks are hard to beat. Take string-swept glam ballad Be My Girl. which softly punctuates one of the year's most wrenchingly innocent hooks with somewhat risque pick-up lines. There's less lyrical subtext, but no less raunchy production, on the glam-rock boogie of Girl in Love, a come-on cursorily addressing the fleetingness of youth. It's only fitting that the Smith Westerns both look and sound like the Black Lips' good-bad not-evil twins.
These guys are sort of literally true to their school, garage-rocker Miss Alex White is a fellow Northside College Prep magnet-school alum, and their time on the road with the likes of Jay Reatard and Nobunny is evident on fine 60s-style frat-rocker Gimme Some Time. With fuzzed-out xylophone, frenetic opener Dreams suggests the group's most recent tour with Girls and Los Campesinos! might serve them better for a follow-up. Diamond Boys almost earns its piano on the strength of its adolescent grandiosity, but We Stay Out lets lo-fi become the end rather than the means, with a guitar line that sounds like a bee buzzing underwater.1.
