Live Review: The Smith Street Band, The Grates, and Deafcult @ Crowbar 22.07.15

What started out as a surprise “secret” gig for The Smith Street Band and The Grates in the lead-up to their spots at Splendour In The Grass this Saturday, turned into a line-down-the-street/sold out in 20 minutes kind of night.

Album of the Week: Holy Holy 'When The Storms Would Come'

Sometimes life gives you lemons and you don’t know what to do with them because they are lemons. But sometimes life gives you a new band that are the most refreshingly polished act that catches you from the very first single. You may have lemons, but at least you have a new band obsession.

Album of the Week: Art of Sleeping 'Shake Shiver'

July is one of our favourite months of the year for Australian music. We are kept warm by the joy that is Splendour in the Grass and the knowledge that some of the biggest album releases of the year are coming. This year is no different, with Brisbane indie-rockers, Art of Sleeping, releasing their debut LP ‘Shake Shiver’.

Album Review: Feels Like - Bully

Nashville indie-rock quartet Bully’s more-than-meets-the-eye debut LP, Feels Like, is so laden with subtext, so referential and pastiche, yet such a goddamn album of and for the times that it feels like any review is more musical retrospective of the past 25 years than a subjective appraisal of a piece of art. Suffice to say, at this early stage, that this is a worthy debut for many reasons more than lead singer Alicia Bognanno’s lascivious, simultaneously wounded and dangerous battle-cries.

Album Review: No Life For Me - Wavves & Cloud Nothings

Of Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi and Wavves’ Nathan Williams collaboration, the fruits of which are the album at hand, No Life for Me, many seem to conclude a classic good cop/ bad cop dynamic: introspective bedroom lo-fi auteur meets brash marijuana-cured surf punk (I bet they’ll get into some hijinks!!) By and large, however, the relationship is a pleasant and reciprocal one, as both Baldi and Williams leave telling fingerprints scattered through the brief LP (a trim 22 minutes) like a pair of bank robbers trying to outdo the other.

Live Review: Yellowcard, Mayday Parade & Born Lion @ The Tivoli, 8.07.15

I'm standing in line, shivering along with every other attendee waiting to get inside of The Tivoli. Security guards call frantically to those in queue, giving orders to have ID ready so everyone can rush inside, warm up and enjoy the evening. Up ahead, the doors have opened and without warning the raucous pounding of punk and roll hits the pavement.
