When a band names themselves after a dinosaur there can be doubts about them rising up to the coolness of our Jurassic friends. This is not the case with Velociraptor. The 10-15 person superband, who describe themselves as the drunk Avengers, are back to protecting the streets of Brisbane with the release of their first full length album.

Brissie neo-psyche four piece Moses Gunn Collective are getting all up in yo' face once again with the release of Shalala, the first single off their up coming EP.
