BEN KHAN | 1000 EP

I’ve been waiting to listen to this EP till my Limited Edition Purple vinyl copy had arrived from the UK. Well it only took four weeks to pass through customs and travel over here but finally the pretty purple (and when I saw purple I mean it’s like bright purple) vinyl has arrived, finally I can…

THE CREASES | POINT

I swear I have seen these guys somewhere before. Not to start this off on a weird point but the name, the bowl cut haircuts, the distinctive California highway rock sound I have seen brassy group The Creases before… I just cannot for the life of me remember where. I digress though because what I…

OUR MAN IN BERLIN | SPIRIT DOWN EP

The boys from Our Man In Berlin have been hard at work since the warm reception they received on their 2014 debut EP. Their sophomore release “Spirit Down EP” is everything I’ve wanted it to be and more.

ELIZABETH ROSE | DIVISION MUSIC VIDEO

Two weeks ago Sydney artist Elizabeth Rose released her beautiful and poignant track “Division” which focused on her beliefs LGBT marriage equality. If you haven’t heard it yet then you really should be getting onto it. It’s not just a track with a beautiful and powerful message it’s also a great track to have a…

MONTGOMERY | PIÑATA PIANO RE-WORK

So this is a little late to the party, I didn’t post anything when it first came out but you know what now that the tour has finished and we’re in a little hibernation mode it’s the perfect time to re-visit this and remind ourselves that the wait will be worth it for whatever Montgomery…

POLARHEART | DYSTOPIA

FUN FACT!!!  Sydney duo Polarheart got their first play on Triple J’s Goodnight Program when I was a guest selector for the night and decided to play their track “Livealie“. The duo have been working hard and it’s been really paying off for the pair with people all over the place praising their previous singles….

TIRED LION | SUCK

Rock… It’s not particularly a genre which I know much of or one that I’ll listen to on the regular. But I know what I like and I like Tired Lion, so I guess my tastes in music must be changing a little. I’ve been listening to their track “Suck” for a while now and…

TOUR NEWS | THE PREATURES CRUEL TOUR

Are The Preatures the most extensively toured act of the past year in Australia? If not then who the hell is beating them cause I swear these guys are everywhere. Not that I’m complaining of course, each new tour brings a new revived kick-ass energy that cannot be beaten. If for some strange reason you…

15 GOTTA SEE ACTS OF SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2015

So I’m assuming (unless you’re oblivious or living under a rock) that you’ve seen the line up of Australia’s answer to Glastonbury/Coachella the one the only Splendour In The Grass has announced the line up for their 2015 weekend. I further assume (unless you’ve been covering your eyes, blocking your ears) that you’ve heard about…

FLUME | SOME MINDS FEAT. ANDREW WYATT

Honestly I used to think that Flume was overrated. I mean yes he made some good music but I never really got why people would fall over themselves. Like he was just one of those producers that I just never really got the hype over. Upon reflection perhaps I was being a little close minded…

MIKE WATERS @ OXFORD ART FACTORY BAR, SYDNEY

The definition of a truly remarkable artist (at least in my mind) is when they can stand there solo on stage and hold your complete undivided attention for an entire set. Melbourne via Adelaide folk-pop artist Mike Waters can do that and make it effortless.

UNICORNS AND OTTERS AS SPIRITUAL GUIDES WITH MUSCLES

Unicorns… whether they be real or not that is an entirely debatable topic which I will fight fiercely to the death to defend. Something that is not debatable (and I really don’t care what you think) is that “Unicorns” by Aussie boy Muscles is an upbeat banger that grabs you by the scruff of your neck…
