live music review: bitch prefect, the liberty social, august 17 2012

Zahra Khamissa
No comments

Supported by ASPS and The UV Race, Bitch Prefect kicked off their Big Time album tour in that very confusing maze of a Liberty Social Club basement. What a strange place. Sure, it has played to a few good bands since opening (kudos to the booker!), it definitely can’t shake off the inner city vibe,…

q&a: bitch prefect

Zahra Khamissa
No comments

Bitch Prefect have been around the block and then some. Hailing from Adelaide, this trio now comfortably calls Melbourne their home. They’re known for making impromptu smartphone music videos, putting on great shows at swell venues, and being seen cycling around Northcote. They’ve done well, these boys, and starting August 17th, they will embark on…

q&a: love of diagrams

Zahra Khamissa
No comments

Love Of Diagrams, a Melbourne three-piece that put out some pretty noisy ’80s music, have been around for a little while. Most recently, they wound up 2011 with a string of shows to launch their 7″ In My Dream. So here’s a few questions, and their answers. I’ve been keeping track of you guys ever…

q&a: prince rama

It’s not every day you meet two sisters who grew up on a Hare Krishna commune. Even less frequent are two sisters who grew up on a Hare Krishna commune and now make music taking inspiration from horror soundtracks, revelatory psychedelic explorations, the codeine drone of slowed and chopped rap, and, of course, Hare Krishna…

2011′s top 5 albums, according to zahra khamissa

Zahra Khamissa
No comments

Peak Twins – I’m Out Album? EP? Released this year? Bandcamp says 2013! So confused. But by no means does this detract from the fact that it is, no exaggeration, a truly excellent compilation (much easier than the album vs. EP speculation). And once you’ve seen them live, it really does take on a new…

Brisbane’s Ball Park Musichave been busy, busy, busy. Lip spoke to them about their year of madness, pending Boy & Bear tour, and the memories they will take away from their Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs tour. Dean! How does it feel to be done with this tour? We’re all a bit sad actually. Here in…

LA Vampires is Amanda Brown. And Amanda Brown is awesome. Making her Australian debut, Zahra Khamissa had the privilege to chat to her about her sound, her collaborations, and a great little anecdote, involving none other than Sonic Youth. Welcome to Australia! How was last night’s show in Cairns? Thank you so much! It was…wild….

Everyone in Australia (and apparently, most of Canada, the UK and Singapore) knows who The Jezabels are. Dunja Nedic spoke to vocalist, Hayley Mary, last year, and I got the chance to speak to Heather Shannon about their recent travels, coming home, and get a little bit of insight on their debut album, Prisoner. So…

When Morrissey has said of a band, ‘It’s so easy to fire out remnants of snobbery where new music is concerned, but once every three thousand years, a band comes along who restore that precious component of faith’, you have to assume that they’re worth a listen. Having just made an appearance at Splendour in…

Myth & Tropics, out of New South Wales, are another one of the lucky bands to get signed to Major Label. They’ve been around for a little while, playing warehouse parties, various gigs and little shindigs but according to guitarist, Liam O’Brien, they’re looking forward to a big year of opportunities and adventures, courtesy of…

No comments

When you take a trip through middle America, structuring it around the fabled Route 66, and come back to kick off a national tour, you have a few stories to tell. I got to ask Liam Judson a few questions about the last few years making music with a NSW band called Belles Will Ring, and…

Oscar + Martin are really causing waves around Melbourne. After seeing them at the Workers Club in May, with the audience packed like sardines in the band room, I couldn’t wait for them to kick off their first tour, showcasing their debut album For You. It was their first show of a national tour, and…

‘Fall At Your Feet’ by Crowded House is such a good song, I don’t think anyone could ever do a bad cover, unless they were tone deaf and actually trying to get hurt. But then there are the good covers, and the really, really good covers. Boy & Bear fall under the really, really good…

live music review: the go! team, the corner hotel, 10 may 2011

Firstly, I must commend Ninja on her fitness level. The woman is unstoppable. That gig was essentially an hour and a half of cardio, and she did not miss a single beat. She even incorporated high kicks. Yes, high kicks. That’s what you get with The Go! Team. Pulling out all the stops, including double…
