Ten 90s Albums More Feminist Than Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill

Ten 90s Albums More Feminist Than Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill

By Scott Creney Look, I know the article’s probably meant to be bullshit and I’m a sucker for clicking on it in the first place (and for what it’s worth I held out a full day before curiosity got the better of me), but everything about this article stinks. And I know that in some […]

Jenny Hval – Apocalypse, girl (Sacred Bones)

Jenny Hval – Apocalypse, girl (Sacred Bones)

By Scott Creney I know that none of this matters b/c the album came out nearly a week ago and so everyone’s already on to reading about another record by now. If I’d finished this earlier, I could have multiplied the number of Original Page Views by 10, and in music writing world this would’ve […]

The Collapse Board finally cracks | an explanation of why we are finally introducing star ratings

The Collapse Board finally cracks | an explanation of why we are finally introducing star ratings

By the Collapse Board Editors (except Lee Adcock, because no one asked her – but that’s OK, I mean she’s not that important anyway) It was inevitable, looking back on it. Despite the protestations from certain staff members here at Collapse Board, and lines such as The problem is that ratings give readers an excuse not […]

Nick Marsh of Flesh For Lulu | Death & Remembrance

Nick Marsh of Flesh For Lulu | Death & Remembrance

By Scott Creney I imagine the day the band finished working on this song they were convinced it was going to be huge. I can imagine them ordering some food, several cases of beer, maybe some champagne, made some celebratory white colombian powder to help the night go on forever. After a few years of […]

A year and change | The Return of Scott Creney

A year and change | The Return of Scott Creney

By Scott Creney Just so you know, I had CB’s lawyers (lawyer, singular, who are we kidding?) give this a quick readthrough to make sure I wasn’t disclosing too much information, but I figured a very, very small number of people might want an explanation before I started writing about music again—where have I been, […]

Real Estate + Blank Realm + Thigh Master @ The Zoo, 27.02.2015

Tonight’s festivities take me to The Zoo in Brisbane, Australia for an intimate night with THIGH MASTER, BLANK REALM and Brooklyn’s own REAL ESTATE. Need to work on your adductors?

A brief history of Collapse Board

A brief history of Collapse Board

2010: Justin Edwards and Everett True found the site. It is intended as a radical alternative to the established Aus music press, with a focus on Brisbane. Meetings are held, where everyone stares blankly at everyone else. Drowned In Sound runs a series of articles asking “is music journalism dead?” 2011: Everett True brings in an array […]

Conversations about music criticism | Does Collapse Board help propagate stereotypes of women in music?

Conversations about music criticism | Does Collapse Board help propagate stereotypes of women in music?

Earlier today, Lee posted an interesting review of the Klara Lewis EP in which she posited (among several other points) that Collapse Board helps propagate the stereotype of women needing men to write and produce their stuff. (If you haven’t read the review yet, I recommend you do. Otherwise a fair amount of this will be […]

Is it OK to write negative reviews of other people’s music?

Is it OK to write negative reviews of other people’s music?

So, we opened up the “secret” Collapse Board Contributors Facebook group to a few hundred readers the other day. Cue much confusion and hilarity and the odd piece of incredible music being shared. After the usual butt-clenching and soul-wringing and back-slapping, a few folk posited that they could indeed write some stuff for Collapse Board […]

Shameless | My 17 Favourite Songs of 2014 that I hadn’t heard yesterday

If they ever print a biography of me, the running title should be Shameless. Guess a major difference between me and others is that I admit it. These songs here – these songs that hopefully you’re going to click on and discover and love and relish (Love And Relish: a great title for a culinary […]
