It’s an exciting time for General Pants Co.’s Major Label! It’s their second birthday and they’ve just signed Melbourne band, Mildlife, with their single, ‘Milk Wool’. Lip had a chat to Tom Shanahan about electro music, advice from fatcats, and David Bowie in Labyrinth! Describe your sound in five words or less. Post-prog-yacht-rocktronica-no-fi. How many…

interview: ainslie wills

Music, particularly good music, can mean many different things to different people. Too often it’s relegated to the role of simply background noise or something to groove to, and while there is certainly a place for this kind of enjoyment, so much is overlooked when we don’t take the time to scratch below easy lyrics…

q&a: jennifer kingwell (the jane austen argument)

Dunja Kay
No comments

What’s a girl (or several) to do when there are so many wonderful front women in the world? Why, get them together for a night of solo performances, of course! Lip had a chat to Jennifer Kingwell of The Jane Austen Argument about Ladies Singles (an event comprising an impressive line-up of five solo women…

lena dunham and meritocracy

Dunja Kay
No comments

By now, just about everyone in the feminist blogosphere has seen and/or read about Lena Dunham’s new HBO show, Girls. This is because we feminists in particular get super excited about anything that might change the representation of women in the media. And Girls, with its awkward self-awareness and even more awkward sex scenes, seemed…

q&a: reef

Dunja Kay
No comments

The mention of British indie rockers, Reef, tends to elicit responses like, “Is that the ‘Place Your Hands’ band?” and a brief rendition of Gary Stringer’s distinct vocals; they have a solid decade-long career under their belt in addition to a couple of seminal songs, and reformed in 2010 to again tour together and share…

film review: titanic in 3d

Dunja Kay
No comments

I didn’t know if I was going to like Titanic. I loved it when it came out; I saw it twice in the cinemas, and my parents wisely pre-ordered it on VHS from Target. When I tell people how many times I’ve seen it, I keep to the lower end of my estimate range (around…

love out loud: post-breakup shake up

Dunja Kay
No comments

There are a number of things I find troubling about the video clip for Katy Perry’s latest single, ‘Part of Me‘. One is that its “timely” release and blatant references to her relationship with Russell Brand (no matter what she says about having written the song years ago) lend weight to the suggestion that their…

q&a: stonefield

Dunja Kay
One comment

Making a career in the music industry is no easy feat. Doing it when you’re in an all-girl rock quartet and half of your members are still in high school however, is a different ballgame altogether. Over the span of their short career, Stonefield have compiled quite an impressive resume; they won Triple J Unearthed…

the green-eyed monster and samantha brick

Dunja Kay
One comment

Even in the vitriolic playground that is the Internet, rarely have I seen the kind of hostility that has been levelled at Samantha Brick after ‘Why women hate me for being beautiful’ was published. As I read through the countless comments, I wasn’t surprised to read many merely accusing Brick of not being good looking…

interview: clairy browne & the bangin’ rackettes

Dunja Kay
No comments

Much like everywhere else (just about), soul music has seen something of a revival in Australia over the past few years. We’ve embraced Adele, the late Ms Winehouse, and Duffy into our hearts and our iTunes playlists. But despite the popularity, there have been rather few Australian artists riding the wave with these successful Brits….

love out loud: ex does not hit the spot

Dunja Kay
No comments

Many moons ago, I took pride in never having had sex with an ex-boyfriend. My badge of honour was in vain, however, as up until 2009, I’d never actually had much desire to do the horizontal dance of danger with someone I was no longer seeing. When you don’t want to do something, it’s not…

adelaide fringe theatre review: just like the movies

Dunja Kay
No comments

I do understand that the goal of most Adelaide Fringe theatre productions (or indeed, any and all arts productions) is not to appeal to me, personally. And yet, as I watched Just Like The Movies at the cosy Paper String Plastic, I wondered if maybe this one had been tailored specifically for me, such was…
