we’re all going gaga

Emma Schenk
No comments

Little monsters across Australia are screaming Gaga, as the lady herself tours the country and treats fans to thrills, spills and everything in between. Whether you love or hate her, everyone has an opinion about the lady who is breaking all the rules of normality. A singer, film maker, fashion diva, gay activist, and number…

album review: still flyin’, neu ideas.

Emma Schenk
No comments

Still Flyin’’s Neu Ideas album brightens your day with its dance pop ‘hamm-jam’ rhythms – a term the 15-piece band coined to represent living life to the fullest. The recent release follows their debut 2009 album Never Gonna Touch the Ground and it seems the band has developed over the last two years. Neu Ideas…

album review: teeth & tongue, tambourine

Emma Schenk
No comments

Sometimes, you just like something and can’t really explain why. That’s exactly what happened to me when I first listened to the new Teeth and Tongue album, and I very quickly fell in love with the band. I was actually surprised I hadn’t heard of them before, as their music seems to present the perfect mix of relentless…

album review: alela diane & wild divine

Emma Schenk
No comments

The first thing I can say about Alela Diane & Wild Divine is her voice, oh… the voice. I was immediately mesmerised by the spellbinding vocals and listeners are lured into her album, which is sunnier than her two previous studio albums. Alela Diane joins with Wild Divine for this album, made up of husband…

album review: joan of arc, life like

Emma Schenk
No comments

I must admit that Joan of Arc’s new album Life Like isn’t something I would usually listen to. Its guitar heavy riffs mixed with forced lyrics is hard to listen to at first for an Indie fanatic. But I’m certainly not against experimenting with new tastes and after a few songs, I could certainly appreciate…

Emma Schenk
No comments

Tessa and the Typecast signed their single ‘Painter’ to Major Label this month. When I spoke to Tessa Pavilach from Victorian band Tessa and the Typecast, I quickly got the sense that she was a beautiful person making beautiful music. The five-piece, who formed five years ago at high-school, create honest music with integrity. The…

ep review: nikki thorburn, to the place

Emma Schenk
No comments

Nikki Thorburn makes music that is perfect to listen to on a sunny day. Her debut EP release, To the Place, promises a great musical future for the Sydney born singer-songwriter and Nikki’s distinctive voice is backed with her acoustic roots sound. Think Julia Stone mixed with Norah Jones mixed with something wonderfully. Thorburn describes…

amanda palmer is good enough

Emma Schenk
No comments

With her recent release of “Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under”, Amanda Fucking Palmer admits to loving our country (just like Oprah Winfrey). Originally beginning her music fame with the Dresden Dolls and now a solo artist in her own right, I’ve always seen Amanda as a strong woman who has an open philosophy to life,…

the myspace shot.

Photographs are nothing like they used to be. They were once a luxury, where you only had twelve shots on the camera roll so you had to make them special. Now, everywhere you go there is a person with a camera, and people always crowd around and smile their fake smiles, no matter how happy…

subcultures are everywhere.

I hate clubbing and dancing close to strangers. The music is too loud and the drinks are too expensive. But when it comes to gay clubbing, I would go any night of the week. Call me a fag hag, I don’t care. If you’ve ever been to a gay club, you will have been exposed…

lights, camera, anorexia

Fame, admiration, lust, constant smiles and a different designer dress every day. I must admit, the life of a fashion model sounds pretty good when put like this. But when you throw in the thermogenics, diuretics, appetite suppressants, amphetamines, and a few ‘grey market’ bodybuilding supplements, it’s starting to sound a little scary. Let’s put…

How to feel like a rock-star

Emma Schenk

I’m a student. I’m not complaining; I lead a fun life, live with four friends and can sleep in on weekdays. However, I have no money. Ever. I’m the girl you see at the supermarket wondering if it’s worth spending the extra 30 cents for branded tinned tomatoes. I’m the girl who waits months for…

album review: Interpol, interpol

Emma Schenk
No comments

Interpol are the darkly electric, cinematic kings of Indie. Brooding enchantment; they thrive on their distinctive sound and hold a true sense of purpose in a music world that is so quickly falling to cliché and generic riffs.  They simply stand alone. Suave and musically gifted, it would be hard for Interpol to mess up…
