REVIEW: Falls Festival, Lorne by Nick Simpkin

Written by on 8 January 2019

I was somewhere east of Lorne, coasting down the Great Ocean Road when the road swayed around a steep, fort-like headland corner to reveal a sight out of some ancient dream – a deep fog spilling over these sharp, craggy cliffs to fall into this endless crystal-blue ocean that extended to the horizon. The sky was littered […]

REVIEW: Falls Festival, Byron Bay

Written by on 5 January 2019

Featuring Anderson .Paak, Vance Joy, Amy Shark, Hilltop Hoods, the annual Falls Music Festival in Byron Bay shaped up to be one of the biggest yet. Festival goers gathered together at North Byron Parklands dressed in their sparkliest clothing, dancing and singing. I instantly felt at home. These were my people. Unfortunately, due to illness, one of the […]

REVIEW: Maddy Jane, Eliza & The Delusionals, Spit Chewy

Written by on 14 December 2018

A freak #SydneyStorm prevented this reviewer from making the start of Spit Chewy, but the last two songs of their set – well supported by an early Lansdowne crowd that were encouraged not to be “lamos” by the Facebook event – showcased a perky grunge sound that has seen the band getting some well-deserved supports and attention.  Eliza & The Delusionals have been taking a slowly but […]

REVIEW: Glades, LA Women, Balu Brigada

Written by on 8 December 2018

Did you spend your Thursday night at home flicking through your Netflix options? Shame.

The […]

REVIEW: Harts

Written by on 26 November 2018

Now it’s no secret around these parts how much of a Harts fan I am (for reference, please see previous Harts article I wrote, which consists of about 85% fangirling). I mean, how could you not be? Face melting riffs, provocative bass lines, salient vocals, and charisma… the guy’s got it all. It’s been a […]

REVIEW: Holy Holy, CLEWS, San Mei

Written by on 18 November 2018

A smoky stage with moody red backlighting, richly mixed audio, and authentically sticky floors welcomed audiences to Holy Holy’s headline show at Sydney’s The Metro on Saturday night for their Faces national tour. A steady crowd had gathered early into the night to see Gold Coast rising-star San Mei bring her powerful voice and electrifying rhythms […]

REVIEW: Total Giovanni

Written by on 13 November 2018

Ever wondered what it would sound like if LCD Soundsystem collaborated with the Talking Heads? Well Total Giovanni have you covered and so much more. Lovers, fighters, artists and disco-dance princes, the Melbourne five-piece are reimagining the naive disco-era with contemporary production techniques, house beats and a dash of underlying cynicism. After releasing the long […]
