Music by Bergman: Lime Cordiale

Lime Cordiale’s infectious performances and genuine, generous interactions with their fans has made them one of Australia’s buzziest acts over the past couple of years. It’s a fact that was reflected in the Triple J Hottest 100 poll in 2019 when Lime Cordiale was the only act to have four songs under 40 – a feat that not even Billie Eilish could pull off. 

Australian pop-rockers Lime Cordiale have just released ‘Colin’, a string-backed ode to Men At Work frontman, Colin Hay..

Music by Bergman: Ondara

Ondara offers a unique take on the American dream on Tales of America, his debut album. Ondara grew up in Nairobi, Kenya, listening to American alt-rock and making up his own songs for as long as he can remember. After discovering the music of Bob Dylan, he moved to Minneapolis in 2013 to pursue a career in music. There he began making his way in the local music scene, continually writing songs about what he saw, felt and experienced in a place far different from home.

The musician known as Ondara has died many deaths. He has shed multiple stage names—Jay Smart, J.S. Ondara—and departed several homes. In fact, one of his most popular songs is called “Saying Goodbye.” Two months ago she released  his new album, “Spanish Villager: No. 3,”

Music by Bergman: Genesis Owusu

Genesis Owusu has the smile of someone who eats fruit directly from the tree, who laughs at bad jokes because they know they are bad and, above all, who knows that their happiness comes from making others happy. Good Time, Don’t Need You, Wit ’Da Team, and WUTD are serotonin pop. Although the Ghanaian-Australian Kofi Owusu-Ansah does not live on funk bubbles alone. On his album Smile With No Teeth, there is also electro-rap, hot ballads, all-embracing falsettos, open-minded hip-hop or pop-rock for those who consider that Prince, Outkast, The Roots, Cody ChessnuTT and Blood Orange were also in their own way pop-rock. Be that as it may, in whatever style you fancy dressing up Genesis Owusu in, his smile breaks through.

After returning earlier this year with ‘GTFO’, Multi-ARIA award-winning artist Genesis Owusu has shared his latest single, ‘Get Inspired’, ahead of his support slot for Tame Impala’s current Australian tour.

Music by Bergman: Dutch Uncles

Manchester’s idiosyncratic art-popologists dutch uncles return with big balloon, their new studio album, on 17th february 2017 on Memphis Industries.

Music by Bergman: Neal Francis

After years of dishonest living—consumed by drugs, alcohol, and addiction—such sincerity is jarring from the 30-year-old Chicago-based musician. Liberated from a self-destructive past and born anew in sobriety, Francis has captured an inspired collection of songs steeped in New Orleans rhythms, Chicago blues, and early 70s rock n’ roll. His music evokes a bygone era of R&B’s heyday while simultaneously forging a new path on the musical landscape.

Neal Francis has recently shared new single,“Very Fine, Pts. 1 & 2”  the song was produced in Los Angeles by longtime collaborator Sergio Rios. The singer/songwriter and pianist’s EP, Sentimental Garbage, drops on November 18, via ATO Records.
