Leena is one of my latest discoveries found through a random MySpace browse. She describes herself as "a girl who moved from Hobart to Marseilles to Cork to Fremantle To Los Angeles To Melbourne. And after writing a million songs, having a million adventures and meeting a million lovely people, the time came to release her first EP called ‘Mean Old Clock’ which released a few months ago in Australia. She's find inspiration in other talented aussie's like Bob Evans, Whitley, Josh Pyke and our earlier featured Jess McAvoy. And also has been playing support slots for some on that list. Leena is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (she plays the electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, synths, ukelele in her songs) Australia can be proud of!

Will Amy Macdonald release her sophomore album this November? Amazon.co.uk added a new release, temporarily titled "TBC", to their store with a releasedate of November 16th. It's been two years since the release of Amy's very succesful debut album "This is the Life" so it might really be the highly anticipated second album we all are waiting for! Will be continued...
UPDATE: Amy replied this on twitter: @letmelikeit sorry to say but amazon are wrong. New stuff is under way but won't be ready until next year. So no new album this year, but definitely some new stuff next year. Can't wait!

Chloe Hall is an engaging, intriguing and charismatic performer, but it’s the simple, undeniable quality of her songs that will make you want to listen to her songs non-stop. Tragedy is met with grace, loneliness is met with a wry humour – the sun never entirely leaves Chloe’s moody autumnal sky. From her early days as a teenage-troubadour on Australia’s folk-circuit, through years of touring both in Australia and, more recently, North America, Chloe has blossomed into an exciting international artist. Her new album “Outside“, due for release in 2009, reveals the fulfillment of Chloe’s development into the serious recording artist she has always been threatening to become. Chloe is currently on a mission to get 10.000 listeners to her new album and I was more than happy to help her to reach that goal. If you want to be part of it too, read more about it here and start listening to the fully streamable new album Outside.

This afternoon the albumart for A Fine Frenzy's new album 'Bomb in a Birdcage' was updated. All news surrounding Alison's new album is exciting althought to me, this albumcover (clickable) seems more like a temporary thing to show of the logo and the new promotional shoot they are going to use for the new album. What do you think?
UPDATE: A Fine Frenzy also used this albumart in the announcement she made today on MySpace about "Bomb in a Birdcage" that is coming September 8, so it might be the final albumart afterall. She also states that the album "features 11 infectious, bubbly, fun tracks infused with gorgeous lyrics and danceable beats" sounds definitely different than One Cell in the Sea to me!
The Narrative's debut full lenght is still in the works and it may take a while before it's released but in the meantime they've posted a demo of a song called "Fade" on their MySpace it's a song they've been playing live so people that have seen them may recognize it. I really like the song, so I hope they release some additional demos soon.*Indie pop duo Dash & Will have a new song called "Too You Too Dumb" that you can download for free. Download the free track HERE. This free download is for this month only, so get it while you can!*Pop rock duo guest. have their new website up.
