National Indigenous Music Awards 2016
2016 plays host to a swag of milestones for Indigenous people national wide; the 50th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk off, the 40th anniversary of the Land Rights Act, 30 years since the release of Yothu Yindi's double platinum selling album Tribal Voice and 25 years since the iconic sound of Treaty pulsated across the country and raced to the top of the charts. So it is fitting this year's NIMAs has a theme, one that revolves around the importance and power of protest songs. Expect a diverse line-up of Indigenous musicians from across the country bringing their voice to these seminal songs. Seeing several leading Non-Indigenous musicians have made a mark on the Indigenous political landscape with iconic songs it wont be surprising to see a few joining this yearâ€™s line-up yet to be announced.
In the meantime both industry and the general public can get involved as Nominations for the National Indigenous Music Awards [NIMAs] open today. 'MusicNT is excited to open nominations for NIMA 2016. The Indigenous Music scene continues to grow. This is your chance to recognise the acts that you love and we look forward to discovering the amazing talent from across the country', says Mark Smith - Executive Director of MusicNT and NIMAs.

Pivotal Point 'It Doesn't Look Good On Paper'
Known as the unnamed baby for many years, this album represents a lifetime of mistakes boldly retold and soulfully delivered by some of Canberra's finest musicians. It doesn't look good on paper but it sure sounds like something you should hear. |
Ranging in size between 6 to 14 members, Pivotal Point. is a logistical nightmare, a funky wall of sound and a fun time, wrapped up together in one very large package. Another great album brought to your enjoyment by Audioary Records. Thank you Brendon.
Barren Spinsters ia a two piece roots rock band from Canberra. Edgy guitar riffs and relentlessly brutal drumming is woven amongst this low-end keybass to produce a sound so chunky you certainly won't be sipping it through a straw. If you're a fan of face melting rock, you'll be a fan of The Barren Spinsters. If you're a fan of The Barren Spinsters, the sky's the limit. Brendon Houlahan / Audioary Records - we love your work!
NEW:The Hollerin' Sluggers [Narrabeen]
Our plea for some awesome music performed by local artists was promptly answered by a super cool and super prompt Marshall Cullen from Foghorn Records. He bought our attention to a most amazing blues/rock trio. The Hollering Sluggers from Narrabeen who are just around the corner from us! You bet we will be playing heaps of their stuff. Thank you Marshall for your assistance - and thank you Sluggers for your feel-good tunes.
Marvell - 'I Remember' The Breakthrough Single|
Break out Sydney duo Marvell, have released the first single off their long-awaited EP.
I Remember displays all the songwriting sensibilities combined with a radio-friendly pop hook that typifies the feel of Marvell; their self- titled EP due out later this year.
Max and Tom Marvell are Marvell- a singer / songwriting duo from Sydney's Northern Beaches whose music defies easy categorising.
Six months ago the brothers, who both have different musical influences, decided to combine their talents to create a new musical force.
In late 2015, the brothers came to the attention of famed record producer Jan Skubiszewski (The Cat Empire, John Butler Trio, Dan Sultan & Ella Hooper) and collaborated with him to record the EP in his Melbourne studios.
'Marvell write songs with BIG choruses. They have a very humble and warm attitude which is refreshing,' said Jan.
'Their pop rock songs can be fun and they can be very touching like I Remember. I think they can fill a space that no other act is filling here in
Max brings a mellow, purer tone to the duo with influences from Allen Stone, John Mayer & James Bay, while Tom provides the grunt with musical
roots that include Jimmy Barnes, Hendrix and Otis Redding.
'This is a record we really wanted to make. We've written together for a long time but not really performed or recorded together, so last year we
decided to get serious,' said Max.
Added Tom: 'The brother thing works really well for us. Even though we come at things from quite different directions we collaborate really well
and it just works.'
