In 2020 Seth Sentry embarked on a weekly challenge. To get fans to submit beats, which he whipped up into short songs, and then dropped every Sunday on YouTube, like clockwork!
Super Cool Tree House became a weekly staple for Seth’s fans in 2020. Waking up every Sunday, we were treated to a recap of the week and a certain take on the world that only Seth could give us. This might have included current events from around the world or just some weird shit that Seth was pondering at the time, and everything in between.

It's been 2 years since DZ Deathrays released Positive Rising: Pt 1; the first installment of their 2-part album. The second half was initially set for release in 2020, but in a somewhat fitting series of events, the world plunged into pandemic. With a moodier tone than its predecessor, Positive Rising: Part 2 draws the outline of an apocalyptic scene, one that sees the band – Shane Parsons, Simon Ridley and Lachlan Ewbank – stepping outside of themselves, seeking out new perspectives and surveying the world from above. From up there, they don't always like what they see, but Positive Rising: Part 2 offers a somewhat hopeful ending. Expect scenes of high energy, chaos, light shows, heavy riffs and a party like only DZ Deathrays know how to throw.
