FRESH MiNT #15 - Something for Everyone!
We're absolutely loving the new music coming out of the Territory this year. And this month's FRESH MiNT has something for everyone. From an upbeat hip hop anthem to a heart wrenching rock ballad, this eNews has you sorted. And if these tracks are anything to go by... this year's NT Song of the Year Awards are going to be extremely competitive. So... listen to the tunes and click on the photo to find out more about the artist! 
Miazma - 'North'
Alice Springs death metal band Miazma have dropped their face melting album 'North' with a hectic film clip and a massive national tour announce! Inspired by the barren harshness of their desert surrounds, the album is a powerful tribute to isolation. And the title track feels like a relentless desert wind, whipping over you again and again. Enjoy, it's desert metal at it's best!

Eleanor Dixon - 'Everything Was At Peace'
Shivers.... that's what we get when we listen to this layered and dreamy track from Eleanor Dixon. 'Everything Was At Peace' is sung in Mudburra language and tells the story of how life was - before white people came to Australia. It's spine tingling, it's complex and it's powerful. The track was produced with Beatrice Lewis in the Barkly Desert Culture program.

Colin Lillie - 'Give Thanks'
Take a moment to listen to this song without distractions. Close your Facebook tab, pop in the headphones and really listen because Colin Lillie's new single 'Give Thanks' deserves undivided attention. It's a heart-wrenchingly honest track from the Alice Springs troubadour and the move to a rockier sound has us very excited for his album due later this year.

Hill Boyz - 'Prison Life'
Hip hop from the desert and the heart! That's what the guys from Hill Boyz are serving and we're lapping it up! Recorded with Monkey Marc and Aussie Battler in the Barkly Desert Culture program, 'Prison Life' is a message to Alyawarra brothers in prison. The Hill Boyz will be performing with The Desert 7'z and E Town Boyz at Wide Open Space Festival in May.

Kaotik - 'No Dramas ft Bellee & Dan the Underdog'
Darwin MC Kaotik combines forces with fellow NT legends Bellee and Dan the Underdog for one of the most optimistic hip hop tracks we've ever heard. 'No Dramas' lives up to it's name. Cruisey swag beats, chilled flow and catchy upbeat lyrics about forgetting stress and enjoying the life you have... we dare you to find a track with more positive vibes!
