KANYE WEST | THE CASES FOR AND AGAINST

KANYE WEST | THE CASES FOR AND AGAINST

By David Stubbs FOR: Every couple of thousand years or so, a man is born whose sheer artistic brilliance replenishes the continents, girdles the earth and shines upon us quite literally with the force of a second sun. They say Jesus Christ may have been such a man but there is some doubt about that. […]

Body-slamming through the tears | Four tracks with the Versace stamp of approval

Body-slamming through the tears | Four tracks with the Versace stamp of approval

By Eighties-Print Versace Four tracks with the Versace stamp of approval I think you should hear. b00bjob – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc_MxrYkTDo With a rap landscape that’s truly reached its quota in terms of braggadocio (no disrespect but DAMN, if I’m driven to reflect on my bank account balance or sex moves one more time…) b00bjob’s ‘https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc_MxrYkTDo’ plays out […]

An Antidote to Boredom 1 | “A young, Aussie, Cetaphil-wearing Kim Gordon prancing around with a microphone”

An Antidote to Boredom 1 | “A young, Aussie, Cetaphil-wearing Kim Gordon prancing around with a microphone”

By Alice Rezende In a stampede of self-confidence and frenzied admiration, I told a writer on Collapse Board that I was going to link him some “awesome bands!!!” that he could write about or store in his memory-pocket for future “this band sounds like this band” obligatory euphemisms. Next thing I knew, he titled this article […]

My buddies call me Ben. We all can’t WAIT for the new Mumford And Sons album

My buddies call me Ben. We all can’t WAIT for the new Mumford And Sons album

By Neil Kulkarni What kind of music am I into? Well… good music! Proper music, y’know? Not the chart stuff so much. I have lots of favourite songs by all kinds of bands and artists but basically I like songs from the heart. Songs about holding on through the tough times. Songs about letting things go […]

Surf City – Jekyll Island (Fire)

Surf City – Jekyll Island (Fire)

By Mel Echo Surf City have been around for 10 years, moving from NZ nun-pop to stoner rock in that time, with a few good Pitchfork reviews along the way. Their fourth release (the second on Fire) sees a meatier Surf City emerge. I’ll plead ignorance and profess that I don’t know what Jekyll Island (in […]

Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

By Milton Fiennes Foo Fighters Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Foo Fighters bum rush the stage to tumultuous applause from an awfully dressed, overweight crowd. They break into the first of many forgettable songs that only have 3 chords the entire time. There’s a 60-year-old guitarist nobody addresses. He looks like he’s won a competition to fuck […]

Evans The Death – Expect Delays (Fortuna POP!)

Evans The Death – Expect Delays (Fortuna POP!)

By Trev Odd Box Evans The Death return with their second LP ‘Expect Delays’. The record constantly shifts focus from sprightly jangle pop to something much darker – often jumping between the two at a moment’s notice. The song writing is now shared between Moss brothers Dan and Olly and this makes the record less […]

Wildhoney – Sleep Through It (Deranged/Forward!)

Wildhoney – Sleep Through It (Deranged/Forward!)

By Liz Ham I can’t help but judge a book by its cover, a wine by its label and a band by its name… which is probably why I blindly chose this album for my first album review. Wildhoney sound like they should. I knew I would like them. Not because itʼs the sound of ʻnowʼ, […]

Xylouris White – Goats, and live in January 2015 at Howler, Brunswick

Xylouris White – Goats, and live in January 2015 at Howler, Brunswick

 Words: Boris van de Legende Melbourne’s had a long-term love affair with the Dirty Three, and a long history of Greek migration – the largest Greek population outside of Athens they used to say, or some such rubbish. Anyway, there’s lots of Greeks – I’m married to one, for example; I live in Melbourne, so the […]
