Can’t Make You Love Me by Bruce, Gena Rose

Bruce, Gena Rose

Can’t Make You Love Me
Dot Dash

Can’t Make You Love Me is the debut album from Melbourne based Gena Rose Bruce. Bruce’s vocals drive this album; a stirring force amidst the pulsing rhythms, echoes of Mazzy Star and Lynchian undertones. Add to this the masterful restraint in the arrangements and one has an album that is both instantly timeless and unmistakably contemporary. In December 2017, Bruce pulled herself out of a toxic relationship, shifting focus entirely towards her music. “I quit my job, gave up the room I was renting and left the whole situation. I spent three months alone at a family property in Warrnambool on the south coast of Australia and wrote the album. It was a healing time.” The place was a small weatherboard near the ocean in the middle of nowhere. Secluded and eerily quiet, Bruce credits the album’s darker edges in part to this environment; “It’s not a sunny beach town, it’s very melancholic. Even in the middle of summer there was no-one around.” But it was here that she regained focus and confidence, entering a period of intense creative output.  With fresh perspective, lyrics fell into place, followed by sound. Producer Tim Harvey and Bruce bounced ideas constantly. “There was lots of demoing and experimenting. We didn’t feel I had to fit to any genre—we just wanted it to be ‘me’.” Consequently, Can’t Make You Love Me is a distinct and dynamic debut from a young artist with a clear vision. With its infectious melodies, sultry vocal performances and...

Perth artist Carla Geneve announces the international release of her debut self-titled record. With a captivating live show and relatable lyricism, Geneve hails from the small coastal town of Albany, some 400 kilometers south of Western Australia’s capital city of Perth. She cut her teeth playing solo shows in and around regional centers as a 16-year old, bursting onto the WA scene in 2017. After being hailed by Pilerats as one of their “18 Artists to Watch in 2018”, her debut single “Greg’s Discount Chemist” was released to overwhelming support. The single was the #1 most played track in 2018 for the Perth community radio station. Key support slots followed for the likes of Gareth Liddiard (The Drones / Tropical Fuck Storm), Cat Power and Kurt Vile. After releasing her second single “Listening” and garnering praise for her showcases at BIGSOUND, the end of 2018 saw her lead with seven nominations at the 2018 WAM Awards where she won Best Single and Best Rock Act. In 2019 Geneve bettered this, winning four WAM Awards, including Best Rock Act, Best Single, Best Guitarist and Best EP. Geneve’s eponymous record was recorded at RADA Studios. Born of smoldering passion and framed by lacerations of heartbreak, the record places her direct and compelling lyricism front and center without sacrificing the dynamism so central to her live performances.

Melbourne duo Super Wild Horses stitch together an intricate patchwork of guitar, drums and keys over dual harmonies and sparse arrangements. Forming the group in 2009, Amy Franz and Hayley McKee have carved a name for themselves locally and internationally as leaders among the lo-fi garage / DIY scene currently exploding out of Australia. In support of their critically lauded debut LP, Fifteen, the pair toured the USA, including a slot at the venerable Goner Fest in Memphis; back home, their on-stage energy put them on festival stages including Big Day Out, Golden Plains and Sydney Festival, and earned them invitations to tour with the likes of Best Coast, Foo Fighters, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Drones, Thee Oh Sees, Pond, Dum Dum Girls and Ty Segall. Following the 2010 release of Fifteen, the two-piece took some time to experiment with compositions and textures, adding layers to the more immediate garage sound of their debut. “This time around it was really important to us to allow space for us both to push our song ideas,” says the band. “Rather than just finish a song and whack it straight on the record, we worked more on the structure of each song until we were confident it was in the best shape it could be.” In 2012, Super Wild Horses bunkered down with producer Mikey Young (of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Total Control) and engineer Jack Farley (Twerps, Beaches, St Helens) to complete work on their sophomore...
