The mesmeric curtain of sound which is Glitter Veils’ Figures in Sight represented a remarkably polished debut for the Brisbane outfit when it dropped in February this year. While Figures has been circulating for a little over a month, the group has taken longer to make an appearance live. But it seems that the reveal […]
Honeyblood play at The Brightside in Brisbane, with support from Twin Haus.
It’s been a long wait – 18 years since their last offering – and fans of The Jesus and Mary Chain, like myself, have surely been hanging out for the band’s ninth studio album, Damage and Joy. The enduring brothers-Reid from Glasgow are back with 14 tracks of quintessential J&MC grungey guitar pop. They haven’t […]

I wish I could say that I’ve been trotting the globe in the five-month interim, questing for loot and slaying fiends. Alas, no, I’ve only been writing for three other outlets – one of those […]
The Goon Sax return to Brisbane with a show at Woolly Mammoth, with support from 100% and Pious Faults.
