Paula Punch releases new EP album ‘Lost Horizon Sessions’

The songwriter and producer of alternative rock known as Paula Punch has released her latest official EP album, “Lost Horizon Sessions.” The EP contains four original Paula Punch tracks recorded live in the studio for a total listening time of about 15 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release on the Punch Park record label. The latest in her constantly updating repertoire and her official debut live release, “Lost Horizon Sessions” is the public’s first glimpse of Punch + guitar without any additional accompaniment.

Sydney, Australia’s Paula Punch cites as influences Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, Chrissy Hind, Francoise Hardy, Bob Dylan, Ed Kuepper and Ron Sexsmith. Her own sound varies from release to release, generally falling within the broad margins of the alt-rock genre, but “Lost Horizon Sessions” finds her at her Annie Lennox-est, with welcome notes of Tori Amos and Jewel thrown in for good measure. Touching, human, and distinctly personal, “Lost Horizon Sessions” is Paula Punch’s most naturally elegant record to date.

This is a live recording session Paula did some years ago,” writes the Punch Park label of their new album, “at Philip Punch’s Electric Avenue Studios in Trafalgar Street Annandale.”

The recordings feature some of the last engineering work of the legendary Wayne “Groove” Myers who passed away in 2016.

“These recordings had been lost for a while as Electric Avenue had since moved its location,” says Punch Park. “They were rediscovered only recently. These tracks included ‘Lost Horizon’ which has appropriately become the EP title.”

Punch Park describes the mix by Groove Myers as “perfectly riding” Paula Punch’s emotional performances. The tracks were recorded after a period of solo gigs around Sydney including supporting spots with Ed Kuepper which Punch has called “intense.” The tracks on “Lost Horizon Sessions” are a window onto the sets Paula Punch played during that time.

Paula Punch has risen to become a staple in the Australian indie music scene. She usually tours and plays with her Sydney band, the Fireflys. Her debut LP album, “Don’t Look Down,” appeared in 2018. Punch has since toured California with Mark Punch and New Zealand-born Nashville artist Jackie Bristow. She won 2nd Place in the Australian Songwriting Awards’ Indie Rock 2018 (she took 5th in 2017). She is the founder and leader of her regular singer-songwriter showcase, “The Punch Sessions,” promoting local artists.

Brog releases new album ‘Wonder’

The songwriter and producer of electronica known as Brog has released his latest official album, “Wonder.” The album contains 11 original Brog tracks for an approximate total listening time of fully 90 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the llornkcor record label. A kaleidoscopic, appropriately named variety of soundscapes, “Wonder” showcases Brog as one of the most intriguing electronica artists of spring 2019 and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Brisbane, Australia’s Brog (BR-ain f-OG)cites as main artistic influences a range of mostly non-digital artists including Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, and Jimi Hendrix. Brog’s own sound takes creative and progressive music elements from each of these and adds his own uniquely post-modern trappings for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on , “Wonder” by Brog has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Wonder,” Brog writes casually, “Hmmm, not sure. That the world is a groovy place?”

Born Lorn Potter in the Boulder, CO area, Brog’s eclectic original tracks blend elements of folk rock, jazz and “new-age, electronic space music, with lyrics that are environmentally aware and full of passions from his heart.” The loose, devil-may-care attitude with which he crafts his songs also hints at the strong undercurrent of his punk-rock past in Dead Silence, with which crew he opened for legends such as TSOL and 7 Seconds.

I started playing music early,” Brog says of growing up in music. “We always had a piano around. Learned trombone – that led to bass guitar, which lead to guitar.”

Since that time, Brog has played in many disparate and popular music projects, such as iO, Acoustic Forum, Tribal Folk with Jamie Janover (Zestfinger), Kicking Mr. Rogers with Scott Kusmirek (Gin Blossoms), Dude of Life (songwriter, Phish), and Intergalactic Spacefish with Dirck Nagy (music prof., WSU), and the renowned drummer, Thumper, as well as his high school band, Alibi, with Minneapolis’ Rich Mattson and My Blue Sky’s Jamie McGregor. He has produced several music videos and also worked as a sound engineer at such major events as the Worldbeat Music and Dance Fest in Longmont, CO, for such artists as Yaocan Chen, Colcannon, the New Land Balkan Band, Serfe’, and the Planina Balkan Choir.

Since 2003, Brog lives in Brisbane, Australia creating psybient, ambient and electronic music.
