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 […]

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 […]

SOTD #751 – The Pink Tiles

However your 14 February is going, bringing you all or the joy you hoped/expected or being just another day of abject disappointment, think of today’s Song of the Day as our valentine to you. Remember, here at Collapse Board we’re lovers not haters.

SOTD #732 – Cowtown

OK, writer. You want to excite the masses with some scrap of music? Read my lips, then. I know, my lips aren’t in front of your face, but use yr imagination for a change. 1. For starters, do NOT use the words “summer”, “summertime”, or other signifiers of such to persuade the reader to listen. […]

SOTD #717 – Ratbath

SOTD #717 – Ratbath

My brother Ben and I, we used to be like crossed fingers. I didn’t need any other friends on the playground, because I could always just hang out with him after school. We told stories together, played word games and card games and our modified version of Rock-Paper-Scissors. In the mornings, we’d just lie on […]
