why Beyoncé’s BEYONCÉ matters

Marissa Paine
4 comments

  Beyoncé released a surprise visual album last week and broke the internet. iTunes crashed and social media lost its collective shit. The sheer magnitude of Beyoncé’s star power is such that she doesn’t need promo. She doesn’t need to slowly drop singles one by one, or sell merchandise, or convince everyone to buy an…

album review: a brief introduction to unnatural light years, oliver wilde

Marissa Paine
No comments

The first sounds we hear on Oliver Wilde’s A Brief Introduction to Unnatural Light Years are pulsating vibrations, closely followed by delicate instrumentals, after which Oliver’s voice fills the spaces these sounds are creating. The lyrics are languid and the track, called ‘Curve (Good Grief)’ is a pretty good indicator of what’s to come. Previously…

ep review: slow motion music, oliver tank

Marissa Paine
No comments

Oliver Tank’s second EP, Slow Motion Music is dramatic from the first few notes of ‘Stay’. The track, featuring the ethereal vocals of Fawn Myers, employs the use of percussion, synth and reverb to create a sonic landscape full of open spaces. Right from the outset, it is clear that this EP will be a…

Opening track, ‘One by One’ showcases her interesting, layered voice, subtle and full. The quiet track gives way to ‘All the Angels’, which uses guitar to weave a trail for listeners…

Here’s what we’re listening to (and watching!) at Lip this week! Billy – Sally Seltmann This is delightful. The new single from singer-songwriter Sally Seltmann, ‘Billy’ is odd-pop perfection. In the clip, Sarah dons Stepfordish garb while she laments the loss of Billy, taken from her by a motorcycle ride. The sad meaning of the…

ep review: ied, pataphysics

Marissa Paine
No comments

There is a quality in the music on Pataphysic’s second EP IED that separates it from the usual Aussie hip hop that fills our airwaves. It may be the way Pat Marks knows his way around a melody, or the rhythms steeped in gentle 70’s vibes, or the lyrics that mean something, but whatever it…

The Danish singer has a playful quirkiness that sets her apart from other singers of the indie-folk ilk and this album reveals layer after layer of her personality, with soft ballads and sunny pop numbers…

album review: herein wild, frankie rose

To be honest, before writing this review, I knew absolutely nothing about Frankie Rose. It was only after listening to ten minutes of Herein Wild that I realised that I had done a disservice to myself.  Rose’ second solo album is the sonic equivalent of clear blue skies and that fancy candy floss they serve…
