Live Review: Laneway Brisbane 2014, Lorde, HAIM, CHVRCHES + more

Words: Sophie Blackhall-Cain Photos: Reuben Beer For the first time in recent memory, Laneway’s line up this year failed to grab me. Megastars Lorde and HAIM made the relatively low ticket price seem worth it, but I was dubious as to whether each of the acts could pull off strong performances. So it was with […]

Haim – Days Are Gone (Columbia)

Haim’s pleasure, limited as even its enthusiasts admit, is the empty pleasure of an endless series of twinkies eaten over the course of 45 minutes. Fine enough in the beginning, but eventually destined to sicken.

Not one… but TWO open letters to the music industry

Not one… but TWO open letters to the music industry

After intense consultation with the other Collapse Board editors (not easy when there are so many, spread so far and wide), I was inspired to write it after reading photographer Pat Pope’s brave, discussion-provoking post on Louder Than War, An Open Letter to Garbage – which I wholeheartedly support.

Nor can I assume it is some form of bizarre, semi-illiterate reference to a “broadening of the horizons” because, clearly, Mumford & […]

“The music consumes me” | students tackle Identity in Music

Every object has economic capital, which is its monetary value, and a utility value defined by its purpose.

Mosman Alder – Humdrum Star (Dew Process)

You know, that the government fabricated the war on drugs (the real one, not the band), that the students coming up seem dumber and […]
