Music Moving the Metro Chart

Donny Benét has had a huge 24 months. Having supported Mac DeMarco through the US this year, the Sydney artist has returned to Aussie shores and dropped Second Dinner, his latest funk-filled outing. Benet says ‘the track is a hooky, groove-driven and unashamed ode to the dopamine inducing late night meal’ and has landed Benét the number nine position on the Metro Chart this week. Leading the way at number one this week, Easy Browns have released Dam Eels. The Paul Maybury-produced track is a light-hearted, post-apocalyptic groove wavering between psych-rock and pop-punk with a few hints of Frank Zappa. It’s a slight smirk in the face of the impending climate crisis.

New to the Regional Chart

Aussie festival favourite, Ash Grunwald returns with Ain’t My Problem. The first taste of his forthcoming album, Mojo it’s an immediate foot stomper, fully utilising the soul-drenched talents of Amrap chart faves The Teskey Brothers, Ain’t My Problem is all about letting go of the past amid reverb laced blues licks and tight percussion. Grunwald debuted at number one on the Regional Chart this week, ahead of the latest from Underground Lovers, Seven Day Weekend at number four. The Melbourne six piece continue to surprise and inspire with their unique indie-pop and electronic stylings. This one builds to an anthemic chorus thanks to the band’s clever interplay between guitar-driven momentum and synth-drum rhythms.

Beyond the Charts

Making waves outside of the charts this week is Wirlomin Noongar artist, Clint Bracknell hailing from Perth. Having spent the last few years creating for film and theatre, Bracknell’s latest release, Break Loose was originally penned and performed for his film H is for Happiness. Featuring in a scene on the streets of his own coastal hometown of Albany, with an ad hoc band made up of his Wirlomin uncles, the joyful track is call to arms for dreaming big, taking risks and shaking off the sleepy town blues.
