The Best of Australia in 2015

Above: Deafcult at the Crowbar. Photo taken by Justin Edwards. Every press outlet outside of Australia will try and tell you folk (I’m from Georgia in the US of A, remember) that Tame Impala carried your torch this year in the indie charts. But who needs those fuckers, eh? I imagine they course through your […]

Jerry and the Giant Peach of new music

I do not know how you have managed to survive without me.  Put a brave face on it?  Good on you.  That is the spirit. No time for words.  Just flagrant misrepresentation.  I remain surprised that men consider themselves qualified enough to make music, the way the penis gets in the way of the fretboard.  I was […]

Scott Creney’s Album Roundup: Aug 2015

Camperdown & Out – Couldn’t Be Better (Popfrenzy)

Couldn’t Be Better is so disinterested in any reality I’ve ever experienced that it’s impossible to connect.

Why would anyone want to hate the best rock band to come out of Australia in decades?

Why would anyone want to hate the best rock band to come out of Australia in decades?

Why do music fans have to be so reductionist. Does everyone HAVE to think the same way?

How sad is this? The Washington Post gets the drop on almost every Australian publication with its summary of Australian music in 2012

How sad is this? The Washington Post gets the drop on almost every Australian publication with its summary of Australian music in 2012: It’s been an especially fruitful year for my favorite geographic micro-genre, with woozy, wobbly, strummy guitar rock emerging as a distinct sound Down Under.
