The Collapse Board Interview: Jess Cornelius

The Collapse Board Interview: Jess Cornelius

After moving from New Zealand to Melbourne in the early 2000s, Jess Cornelius found fame through Teeth & Tongue, the band she formed in 2007. After releasing four critically acclaimed albums, Monobasic (2008), Tambourine (2011), Grids (2014) and Give Up on Your Health (2016), they disbanded in 2017, with Cornelius starting to release music under […]

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. You go to their show – perhaps on a chilly March evening at The Forum in Melbourne – expecting a multitude of things. Maybe a detached Kraftwerk-esque display; perhaps a glorified DJ set, or possibly poppier […]

Julia Jacklin + Weyes Blood @ Zoo Twilights, Melbourne, 28.02.2020

Julia Jacklin @ Nine Lives Festival by Bianca Holderness It’s a cool Friday night, the penultimate day of summer, out on the lawn at Melbourne Zoo. As usual for Zoo Twilights, it’s packed with folk of all ages, relaxing with a beer or a pink gin with mates and family, waiting to hear some great […]

Neko Case @ Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre, 13.03.2019

Photo courtesy of @eliseormston It’s been a busy week for live music all over Australia. There were so many tantalising acts, both local and international, I had to rationalise and choose how many gigs I could attend (unfair). By the time tickets went on sale for Neko Case at the Melbourne Recital Centre, I almost […]

I’m not familiar with her music, and she takes a couple of songs to warm up, but her […]

Alex Cameron + Body Type + Laurence Pike @ The Croxton Bandroom, Melbourne, 03.05.2018

Alex Cameron makes every show feel like a homecoming. He’s a warm presence on stage. He speaks calmly and fondly about his connections to Melbourne, and dedicates more than a few “…and on the saxophone…!” asides to his friend-cum-‘business-partner’ Roy Molloy. Anyone familiar with Cameron’s work knows it toes the line of satire to the […]

Phoenix @ The Forum, Melbourne, 26.02.2018

Phoenix @ The Forum, Melbourne, 26.02.2018

Jeez louise – Phoenix have been around for a while. Having released their debut record United back in 2000, they’re coming up on 20 years as a commercial band – reading into it a little more they smashed that barrier last year since they technically formed in ‘97. A lot of people my age would […]

Q&A with Cable Ties

Q&A with Cable Ties

Photo: Teds Records Cable Ties hold a special place as one of Melbourne’s most beloved bands, one in strong pedigree of fearless rock acts that are seemingly constantly shattering the boundaries of what you think they may achieve.  In February, they’ll join artists like The War on Drugs, Aldous Harding, and Anderson Paak, in touring Australia’s […]

Marlon Williams and The Yarra Benders @ Howler, Melbourne, 20.11.2017

Here in Australia we love to claim New Zealanders, especially musicians, as our own. It’s pretty safe to say that we’d kill to brag about Marlon Williams being an Aussie. I mean, he was based in Melbourne for a while. Let’s face it, he’s a prodigy. A rare vocal genius and still only 26 years […]
