"Atlas" is one of the most successful albums by the guys from Byron Bay, Parkway Drive. While that album is no longer in our collection, the link below will take you to the band's great 2015 album, "Ire."
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
It's hard to keep up with all the King Gizzard and the Lizzard Wizzard's album releases but this EP from 2011 is great listening.
This New Zealand duo's first release, "Evergreen," is no longer in out catalogue, however the link below will take you to Brood's latest album, Don't Feed the Pop Monster.
The Meanest Hits
Shihad's greatest hits, "The Meanest Hits", is a great place to begin listening to a band with such a huge discography.
Relationship of Command
At the Drive-In
"Relationship in Command" is At the Drive-In at their emotional best. Click on the link below for the equally great follow-up, "In-ter a-li-a".
This is Leon Bridges' second tour of Australia since releasing this critically acclaimed gospel and soul record.
Produced by legendary producer Rick Ruben, "Shangri La" is Bugg's second album and includes tracks "Slumville Sunrise" and "What Doesn't Kill You".
Boys Don't Cry
The title track, "Boys Don't Cry", is the most notible track on this album, but the album also includes great tracks like "Killing an Arab" and "Jumping Someone Else's Train".
This self titled album from The 1975 reached number 1 on the UK charts.
Tegan and Sara
Produced by Chris Walla of Death Cab for a Cutie, this is a fun album from Tegan and Sara.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
This is a favourite for one particular staff member at Kingston Libraries. You may hear them singing along to "Can't Hold Us" whilst out on the floor.
