SOTD #756 – Young Guv

SOTD #756 – Young Guv

Versese are good.  Choruses sometimes, often, can be even better.  But then there’s that exclusive club of very special songwriters who can do all those things but can take it to the next level and also nail a pre-chorus and a middle eight.  A pre-chorus being its own part but also effortlessly elevating the verse […]

SOTD #755 – Vivian Girls

There have been a couple of ways to make yourself feel old this week. The first was to download FaceApp to your phone and use it to gaze into the void of your own mortality, a depressing prediction of what the future will bring. The second way to feel old this week was to listen […]

SOTD #754 – Sharon Van Etten

I must have listened to this song at least 20 times on repeat today. That must be a good enough reason for it to be a Song Of The Day. And then I got around to actually watching the video clip rather than just having it playing in the background and it was perfect. The […]

SOTD #753: Soot

Given it’s the middle of the month, is it still ok to wish everyone a Happy New Year? Well, Happy New Year anyway. New Year, new you (maybe). Same old Collapse Board (probably). We hope to be doing more of the same that we’ve been doing for almost the last eight and a half years. […]

SOTD #752: New War

We haven’t done one of these for ages so how about the new New War one? How about the new New War one indeed.  “Get In The Boot’ is a first taste of the band’s long-awaited, upcoming second album, COIN.  It’s pretty ace. Having checked, we did give them a SOTD one time before (SOTD […]

Regular readers will know that when it comes to firsties, Collapse Board is not the greatest. We take our own sweet time / are too lazy for our own good / are too busy to be able to guarantee to post up things in the day / week / month / year in which they […]

Song Of The Day 170: Hatchie

Laneway rolls into Brisbane this weekend. Traditionally (or at least in recent years), it’s been the first stop in Australia (after Singapore and New Zealand) but this time it’s been relegated to the last weekend. I don’t really envy everyone playing in Brisbane on Saturday (sunny and 33 degrees Celsius forecast) and then having to […]

Song of the Day 169: Tropical Fuck Storm

One of the many things I spend far too much time thinking about (I really should write a list and see if there’s any consensus or if it’s just me) is the ‘side project’.  It’s funny how musicians all have ‘projects’ now.  What perplexes me as a non-musician type (well, I can bash out a […]

Photo Credit: María Fernanda Molins The new and improved date change for triple j’s annual Hottest 100 countdown took place over the weekend with the usual amount of jingoistic chest beating and flag waving with regard to the number of Australia acts making the list.  There’s always a hint of sadness in going through my inbox, […]

Song Of The Day 167: Camp Cope

Back in November when it was released, I set up a draft post for Camp Cope’s ‘The Opener’ but, as with so many drafts, I didn’t get around to finding time to write some words about it and so the moment was missed.  I probably should have just posted up the lyrics and declared it […]
