What starts off as easily definable and comparable transforms about 1:36 seconds into Float Along - Fill Your Lungs' epic opening track "Head On/Pill." From there, the album is a journey through psychedelia, rock and George Harrison-esque sitar solos. The final product is an album that shows Australian music is an ever-evolving form that is yet to be defined.

Dream Cave is a solid follow-up to 2010's Bliss Release. Songs like "Promises" and "Scar" demonstrate the potential of one of Australian music's brightest 21st Century bands. The album wanes a little as it progresses, transcending more and more into dreamy sub-pop. Still, it's a good album with enough quality tracks on it to warrant its spot on this list.
