We love our Australian sub-publisher, Mushroom Music. They consistently supply us with quality music and new artists to fall in love with AND highlight to us the cracking sounds coming out of Australia and New Zealand at the moment. SO, as a thank you to them, here are five Mushroom-signed artists that are bringing sunshine into our lives:

Eddy Current Supression RingTheir first album came out in the UK in November and deservedly garnered some rave reviews. Taught grungy rock with lots of personality. Lush. And what a video.

The Boat People: Dreamy, super-melodic-indie-pop to die for. If the current single is anything to go by then I’m very excited about the new album (due this year).

Canyons: With an album due on Modular this year and a one off 12″ already released on DFA this band’s brand of off-kilter dance music is set to capture the imagination in 2010.

Shapeshifter: This lot are MASSIVE in New Zealand with platinum albums and sell-out gigs on a huge scale. Their brand of manic, driving ‘heavy soul’ music, which is as warm as it is chaotic, will undoubtedly find them new fans in many countries this year as they release their new album ‘The System is A Vampire’.

Cloud Control: I was very impressed with Cloud Control when I saw them live last year. After hearing some songs from their album due this year I realised I actually love them… Folky pop with big hooks. Gorgeous.
