The Friday Afternoon Playlist, 28.02.2014

So Soundwave came and went and the testosterone levels in Brisbane have returned to normal levels (at least as normal as you can get in Queensland).  Doing  some late, after-the-event reading-up about the festival, it was interesting to see, especially after last week’s playlist, that a Japanese stage was being rumored this year. This would […]

The Friday Afternoon Playlist, 21.02.2014

Introducing: Screamfeeder (Singles and More 1992-2004)

Introducing: Screamfeeder (Singles and More 1992-2004)

The Friday Afternoon Playlist, 07.02.2014

Over the last few weeks I’ve been putting these posts together I’ve discovered that my inbox is pretty quiet Monday to Wednesday and then gets inundated by press releases on Thursday. From this I can only deduce that the music industry spends Monday recovering from the weekend, thinks about work on Tuesday, writes its press […]

Dirty Jeans – The Rise of Australian Alternative Rock (…from a non-Australian music critic)

Dirty Jeans – The Rise of Australian Alternative Rock (…from a non-Australian music critic)

Well, how bloody convenient! So here we were, musing about how Triple J has gripped the Aussie music industry so tightly that even writers are falling all over each other to sound exactly alike – when along comes this compilation. Fantastic! Now we have here a bona fide aural coffee table book – 25 tracks, […]

Collapse Board mix tape 1 – Downunder

Collapse Board thought it would be good if I made a (virtual) mix tape. We all love mix tapes, what better way to mesh what we already know and love with new discoveries and soon-to-be favourites! When I was finished with the first mix tape I made for Collapse Board, I realised there was only […]
