SOTD #752: New War

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 […]

Editions in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne were previously produced before being cancelled in February 2014.   Today Tonight is notorious for its sensationalist reporting, and […]

SOTD #750 – So Cow

SOTD #750 – So Cow

Ah-ha! It’s just as I suspected. I have this habit of trying to imagine songwriters through their lyrics – and especially in the car, where this side compartment in my imagination works on overdrive. Thus – there’s this one guy Brian Kelly, and he’s got this band So Cow, except in this case it isn’t […]

SOTD #749 – Big Bill

SOTD #749 – Big Bill

The new 7” Every City / Food Chain by Austin, Texas, spazzo-nerdcore good-times-every-time-all-the-time “it’s a TV Party” band Big Bill is easily the product of a band of misfits that must have been locked in a room in the 80s with only Urgh! A Music War VHS on loop and nothing but Capri Suns and […]

SOTD #747 – CaStLeS

SOTD #747 – CaStLeS

There seems to be this revival of the 90’s right now, and the new single “Amcanu” by Castles (which is actually CaStLeS, but that’s way too much work to type) might be one of freshest takes on that era. I’m hearing traces of the krautrock of Can and Neu! (both had reissues in the 90’s […]
