Welcome to our staff playlist! 

STAFF PICKS is a playlist of the best new and new-ish Australian and NZ music curated by one APRA AMCOS staff member each fortnight.

Follow us on Spotify and Apple Music.

It's our 12th iteration of STAFF PICKS and this week we've enlisted the help of Katherine McDonald, Graphic/Digital Designer.

Get to know Katherine a bit better below, while you listen to her top picks.


Describe your role at APRA AMCOS in one sentence:
I make everything we put out there look a bit better. 

What is your favourite song on your playlist and why?
VOWWS Structure of Love
- it was recently remixed by Danny Lohner (better know for his work with Nine Inch Nails) with extra vocals from Chino Moreno (aka the best vocalist of all time). The rest of their stuff is amazing as well. 

What’s the last gig you went to?
at the Sydney Opera House.

What’s the first gig you went to?
Silverchair/Spiderbait/Midget/Even at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. 
I had just turned 13 and silverchair were my favourite band ever. Even now that line up looks amazing. 

My favourite music memory is…
Bjork launching into "Hunter" on the Opera House Forecourt. There were streamers involved.

Final thought
While picking these songs I was reminded by how few female-oriented musicians are visible in hard rock/metal. It's great to see acts like RedHook coming though - more please!
