Brainbeau – Infinite Ways

Brainbeau – Infinite Ways

Listen to the introduction of Marvin Gaye’s 1977 single ‘Got To Give It Up’. The loose chatter, the casual clinking glasses. It feels like a party. The sound effects continue throughout the song, acting like any other instrument to put across a feeling of happiness and joy, of something bright and something fun. The Beach […]

Queen + Adam Lambert @ Metricon Stadium, 29.02.2020

I promised myself I would never do this.  Never, ever. I just had no interest. Absolutely none. And it wasn’t just that, it was more.  There was always something unsavoury about the whole thing.  Why did I feel like this? Queen were the band of my youth, from start to finish, from 1980s Flash soundtrack […]

Hot Chip @ Forum Theatre, Melbourne, 07.03.2020

The thing that’s really impressive about Hot Chip is the depths to which they can plumb their own sound.

Maybe a detached Kraftwerk-esque display; perhaps a glorified DJ set, or possibly poppier […]

By Billie Stimpson Photos by Bianca Holderness In Brisbane Sunday the first of March, The Tivoli, Jet Black Cat and handsome tours collaborated on Nine Lives – the latest in ongoing efforts to creatively reach beyond the more unpleasant conventions of the large-scale Australian musical festival.

Alice Cooper + Airbourne + MC50 @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre, 18.02.2020

Music is full of underrated and unappreciated acts; bands, musicians and singers that should be much better known, have higher reputations and more respect. And yet despite the high profile, the songs on classic radio stations, the sell out arena shows, the TV interviews, the film cameos, Alice Cooper just does not get the widespread acclaim […]
