Habits @ QAGOMA, 07.08.2017

Habits traverse an area few of their more visible Australian contemporaries dare venture. The pair’s 2016 debut Ugly Cry makes nods to the sounds of Melbourne’s electronic underground, acid house, industrial, synth pop, club music and future R&B. Wherever the two find their inspiration, they make it exciting, without losing a grip on creating music […]

Death Grips @ Max Watt’s, Brisbane, 04.08.2017

Death Grips have spent the last six years delivering a unique style of music that infuses elements of punk and noise rock into a hip-hop framework. Back when they released their first mix-tape Exmilitary and their debut studio album The Money Store, they quickly attracted much acclaim for their innovative blend of genres which would […]

Sigur Rós @ Margaret Court Arena, 27.07.2017

Although it’s almost five years since Sigur Rós last played in Melbourne, memories of the second ‘Harvest’ festival remain strong. Back in November 2012, Sigur Rós headlined a brilliant line up on the great lawn sprawling before the historic Werribee Mansion. That night was perfect and emotionally resonant. My partner didn’t make that festival; he […]

Real Estate + RVG + Parsnip @ Croxton Bandroom, 20.06.2017

In the words of Aubrey Graham, “I’ll admit it, I’ll admit it”; I’ve not listened to a Real Estate album fully since their 2011 album Days, which, if I remember correctly, sat sandwiched between other similarly inoffensive indie rock albums in my iTunes library. Every few years the band would crop up again, another album, […]

The Undertones @ Triffid, 07.07.2016

Playing your biggest hit/best known song more than once during a show is never a good thing. When The Undertones nonchalantly play ‘Teenage Kicks’ as their tenth song, it’s perfect. It’s a true punk rock moment. Guitarist Damian O’Neill dedicates it to someone in the crowd before being reprimanded by singer Paul McLoone for the […]

Radio Birdman, Died Pretty @ The Tivoli, 23.06.2017

My first Radio Birdman experience was at the Golden Plains Festival in Meredith, Victoria back in 2015. I didn’t know much about them at the time. My friend Warren used to bang about them all the time. It seemed that their main guy, Deniz Tek, was some sort of modern day renaissance man, who could […]
