Couples Counseling and the future of feeling good about feeling weird

Couples Counseling and the future of feeling good about feeling weird

The SP404 is the acoustic guitar of the 21st century, but it’s okay that people haven’t fully embraced it yet; people were still fiddling around with music hall clarinets and jaunty filligrees on the player piano this time a hundred years ago, so anyone playing ‘Wonderwall’ in a pub right now can’t be blamed for […]

Yo La Tengo @ The Zoo, Brisbane – 11.03.2014

Words: Darragh Murray Photos: Mino Peric There’s a brief moment between ‘Before We Run’ and ‘Deeper Into the Movies’ when I start to feel all tingly-like, strange and light. If you’ve listened to enough music, you’ll probably know what I’m talking about. It’s that familiar but often elusive feeling of pure engagement, that deep emotional […]

Sky Ferreira, Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, 18 March 2014

Sky Ferreira’s Sydney show, the only date on her ludicrously short inaugural Australian tour, was itself a tad on the skint side. I mean, on their first tour in 2011 OFF! played every song from their 25-odd minute first album and then started playing it again from the top to fill out the time. Anywho, […]

Live Review: Golden Plains 2014 – Part Two

Live Review: Golden Plains 2014 – Part Two

And thus continues my 2014 Golden Plains excursion, the first of which was documented late last week. Day Two I wake around 8:30 crammed into a small tent that says it can fit two people in it, but it probably more suited to one. Yet my partner and I have persevered and this is in […]

Live Review: Golden Plains 2014 – Part One

I arrive into Melbourne’s Tullamarine airport in just after 10am on a Friday morning. I adjust my watch to the civilised time zone, retrieve up my excess luggage (a large camping gazebo capable of keeping the sun off a small herd of cattle), and then pick up the 8-seater Kia Carnival I had booked to […]

Live Review: Wire, Per Purpose, Multiple Man @ The Zoo, Brisbane, 19.02.14

The doors are closed when I arrive.  This is because the gig is on the other side of town.  I’ve wrongly assumed Wire would play at The Hi Fi, a larger, air-conditioned venue that’s hosted a series of older/reformed bands lately.  Instead they are playing The Zoo, a smaller, hotter venue that tends a little […]

Future of the Left @ The Zoo, Brisbane, 05.01.2014

“I’ve never see as many men in my life”, says guitarist Jimmy Watkins. “Cock forest”, a nameless heckler yells out. “Cock forest?”, Watkins seemingly asks himself. A Future of the Left concert in Brisbane never fails to retain a poignant sense of familiarity. *** Almost exactly two years ago, I reviewed Future of the Left […]

Regurgitator + Wampire + Seja + Mystery School @ The Hi-Fi, Brisbane, 11.10.13

The thing I like the most about Regurgitator is their complete lack of irony (in the hipster sense anyway)
