Two reviews of Sam Smith (SPOILER ALERT! I didn’t like him)

Two reviews of Sam Smith (SPOILER ALERT! I didn’t like him)

Here’s the first one. Sam Smith Brisbane Riverstage Saturday 25 April 2015 1 star There’s a musical device called an appoggiatura. As the Wall-Street Journal explained, it’s a type of ornamental note that clashes with the melody just enough to create a dissonant sound. “This creates tension in the listener,” wrote Dr Martin Guhn in a […]

Montage of Heck | “undercooked and over-thought”

Montage of Heck | “undercooked and over-thought”

By Alexandra Duguid Since the suicide of Kurt Cobain in 1994, he and his band have always been mystified, covered in conspiracy, touted and disparaged. With exciting new footage, audio and illustrations of and created by Cobain, film maker Brett Morgen’s Montage Of Heck promised a demystifying of the Great Cobain Myth. The film explores […]

A review of Charli XCX live in Brisbane written perhaps not the way you’d expect

A review of Charli XCX live in Brisbane written perhaps not the way you’d expect

By Everett True/Kat Elizabeth Donald I took one of my students from Sex Drugs Rock’N’Roll down to see Charlie XCX and Tkay Maidza at The Met last week, on the stipulation she write something about it for Collapse Board. So she did. I really liked Tkay because she was just so young and had so […]

The return of Everett True | 153. Sacred Paws

Flung from pillar to post. All I know is all I know. I stopped listening to new music when I was 20, when it comes down to it. Go on then, define new. Doubtless, some people might be taken aback by this wonderful song by Sacred Paws. It is warming. It is fast but not […]

An old one next, but it still sounds relevant Written about an Australian politician, but you can always change a few words… Just about […]

The return of Everett True | 152. Carly Rae Jepsen

The music I linked to yesterday is beautiful. My words, not so. No one clicked through anyway, because no one wants to know about stuff they’ve never heard of.

The return of Everett True | 151. Manyfingers

I no longer know what’s going on. (That sounds so final. Damn it. So melodramatic, self-serving. So self-obsessed.) This post is a shout-out to all the hours of silence, doing nothing. Staring at the wall. (So descriptive. Such a power with words. Such grasp of life’s possibilities.) Fingers idly tapping on the desktop, falling into […]

The return of Everett True | 150. The Vanilla Milkshakes

Here’s how it works. Grab my attention, and I’ll listen. Ten seconds, that’s normally all I need. How to grab my attention? I couldn’t say, and even if I could say I wouldn’t say cos that’d just be dumb and then there would just be some other whole new way of grabbing my attention in […]
