SOTD #732 – Cowtown

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

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 […]

SOTD #710 – School Of Seven Bells

SOTD #710 – School Of Seven Bells

I think I can blame Drowned In Sound’s Sean Adams for pointing me in the direction of School of Seven Bells. If my memory serves me right, I think it also probably helped that this was at the same time as they had announced a Brisbane show, that I subsequently put in to photograph. It […]

SOTD #703 – The Drones

SOTD #703 – The Drones

With apologies. We, the Australian people, deserve better. The power struggle in the Liberal party, the blistering hot days, the deadly animals that inhabit the bulk of the country – we deserve a new start. A fresh start. That starts with a new Australian Anthem. Let’s be honest; the current National Anthem, ‘Advance Australia Fair,’ isn’t very […]

SOTD #701 – Zoe Zac

Sometimes these songs should just introduce themselves. This one would say, “Hi, I’m a dreamer. Do you ever think about your own death?” Zoe Zac – Honeybee ep by metal postcard records The line “won’t you be my honeybee” might strike you as the punchline in an insect-themed Valentine’s day card – but not in […]

Song of the Day #700 – The Orielles

I have been to Halifax, UK and the last place I’d expect to find a band that sounds like the Orielles would by far be Halifax. I was drawn to this by the masterfully done hand lettering of their band name that I kept seeing all over the internet. I instantly checked out their soundcloud […]

SOTD #684 – Pairs

I’LL PAY THE STANDARD RATE So I posted that Cloud Nothings review. I’d been cracking away at it for a while, dissecting and inspecting and selecting, trying to figure out what’s missing. ‘Cos something’s missing. I know it ain’t the album of the year. If so, then rock and roll has clearly reached its expiration […]

Song of the Day #683 – Ike

Song of the Day #683 – Ike

Sexuality is something I haven’t cracked yet. Kinda like hose, tall leather boots, and low-rise jeans – it’s a garment that never seemed to fit, both in a physical and metaphorical sense. Me, I wanted to show off my wit, not my body. Gimmie some baggy corduroys and olive knit duds any day. But then […]

SOTD #681 – Vulture Shit

“We’re Vulture Shit…which is the worst kind of shit” I’d been a-thinkin’ for a while that Sleaford Mods, the post-punk rant rap sensation sweeping the UK nation, deserved the Collapse Board treatment. But three things happened this week that shut down this idea. 1. This Guardian article, which basically claims that the NEW THANG will […]

Song of the Day #680 – Dog Chocolate

“DOG CHOCOLATE, DOG CHOCOLATE, ISN’T FIT FOR CONSUMPTION” It’s best when new bands just slap ya in the face. Like when this rabid bloke from Dog Chocolate cries that he wants to give birth. “I know it will hurt, and I know it will bleed / but I really, really, really, really, really wanna breed”. […]
