Glen Schenau + Jive Canyon (duo) + Hexmere + Soot @ Via Studios, Brisbane, 11.05.2018

Words and photo by Ben Snaith The show is in Rehearsal Room 1. This means that tonight we are in a small box with a low ceiling and the bands filling half the space. The lighting is subtle, the smells are apparent and the door price is $5. At this moment, I’m grateful to be […]

Is Manus Blood Money Making Australia’s Next Big Act? 

Is Manus Blood Money Making Australia’s Next Big Act? 

With second LP 'Watching The Sky' and support of industry heavies, Brisbane’s Sheppard are set to take on the world, but there’s a deafening silence.

Sheppard. “Who!?” They’re from Brisbane. Three of the six – George, Amy, and Emma Sheppard – are siblings. They might not be a household name, but they are an ARIA decorated six-piece. The group first broke through in 2013 with ‘Let Me Down Easy’. Tearing up the charts the following year ‘Geronimo’ hit number one […]

Why’d Ya Do It, Why’d You Do What You Did? – On the return of Sticky Fingers

Why’d Ya Do It, Why’d You Do What You Did? – On the return of Sticky Fingers

Unaddressed allegations of racism, misogyny, violent abuse and bad behaviour. There’s a problem with Sticky Fingers. We know this, but let’s be real. There are others too minded in profit or self-assured ignorance. These complaints will never speak to them. So with that comes the hoary old question. What do we actually do about it? […]

The Long Read: Confessions Of An English Music-Pirate

By Paul Rayson UK Consumers Of Illegal Online Music On The Decrease runs the headline from 18 September in M Magazine, which is published by PRS for Music Limited, the UK music copyright collective.

Neurosis + DISPOSSESSED @ Triffid,16.02.2017

By Tom McCall California’s Neurosis have spent the last 30 years delivering some of the most confronting and boundary-defying metal of any era. Having been a fan for several years and knowing their reputation for notoriously intense live shows, there was no way I was going to miss this performance, especially with Sydney’s DISPOSSESSED in […]

The Year I Officially Became The Bride of Jesus: How and Why I Cried My Eyes Out Watching Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

The Year I Officially Became The Bride of Jesus: How and Why I Cried My Eyes Out Watching Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

By Darcy Rhodes After not cutting my hair for a year, I started hearing that I looked like Nick Cave. These comparisons only became more frequent when I began singing in a baritone. When I started dating a girl whose family idolised the man, the comment became a compliment. Last year when Nick Cave’s son […]

Solange – A Seat At The Table (Columbia Records)

Solange – A Seat At The Table (Columbia Records)

By Lizzie Irwin A Seat At The Table, Solange’s third album is a bittersweet diary of black existence in 2016. It’s soulful R&B is relatively minimalistic when compared with the already sleekly (Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange) produced 2012 True EP. The production is delicate but the messages are heavy-handed, stirring and vital in a […]

“I Just Want To Stay Excited”: An Interview with the Goon Sax

“I Just Want To Stay Excited”: An Interview with the Goon Sax

By Hayley Scott. “I want people to think about me”, sings a wistful Louis Forster on the title track of The Goon Sax’s candidly self-deprecating LP, Up To Anything. The album deals in subjects that pertain to certain kind of world-weary adolescence that’s never cynical nor maudlin. Instead, it’s presented with a wide-eyed excitement that […]
