A knot in my heart: The Raincoats at the Feminist Library Summer Benefit, London, 2 July 2016

A knot in my heart: The Raincoats at the Feminist Library Summer Benefit, London, 2 July 2016

Photo by Amber Bateup. It’s hard to talk about The Raincoats. I’m writing this from a teahouse in London, trying to figure out why that is. I can’t find the right phrase to describe the knot in my heart that tightens when I think about them. It’s the kind of knot that holds you together. […]

Three Live Reviews, In Capsule Form

Three Live Reviews, In Capsule Form

Photo by Amanda Hatfield. I’ve been meaning to write a live review for a while, but the whole process always intimidates me. For one, I’m not a photographer. And two, I’m never sure if anyone cares for my account of a gig. But last night, flushed and pseudo-drunk (I’d only had ginger beer, but I […]

Live! – Belly @ Ritz, Manchester, 17 July 2016

Reprinted with permission from Toby Goodwin of musicgigsnthings. It was over twenty-three years ago that I first saw Belly live. To be exact it was Saturday 13th February 1993.

Poliça + Jaala @ Melbourne Recital Centre, 31.05.2016

I spent the first few minutes of Polica’s set at the Melbourne Recital Centre wondering whether or not this whole ‘sitting down’ thing was going to work for a band that, as I understood them, thumped and grooved enough in a way that might warrant a little boogie. Sitting down seems so academic, so chin […]

Hinds + The Creases + Tempura Nights @ The Foundry, 07.05.2016

Hinds + The Creases + Tempura Nights @ The Foundry, 07.05.2016

By Sebastian Keim Tempura Nights start out like a band born in an era when reverb was cheap – simple three chords patterns and a haze of guitar recalling the early days of Best Coast, Wavves and all those other bands that have faded in my memory like the faded polaroids of Californian beach scenes […]

In Words: Deradoorian + Sunbeam Sound Machine + Andrew Tuttle @ The Zoo, 17.04.2016

“There’s not much open on a Sunday night in Brisbane,” laments Angel Deradoorian. “We ended up eating in the food court in the mall.” Our well-loved Chinatown is less than a block away and there’s a rash of bars copying the fried fare of her native California. But as any local who’s been asked for […]
