Samantha Armatys
No comments

2017 so far has certainly had its highs and lows. This weekend we are seeing the first ever women’s AFL grand final on free to air TV (high) while a few weeks ago a bill to decriminalise abortion failed to pass through parliament in my home state of QLD (low). It seems if you are…

interview: the future of mallrat

Samantha Armatys
No comments

For those who aren’t familiar with Grace Shaw, aka Mallrat, the 18-year-old Brisbanite says her first EP sounds ‘like Lily Allen and All Day mixed together.’ With abundant wistful production and lyrics soaked in suburban drawl, her tracks are equivalent to a lazy QLD summer. Introversion, insecurities and the humdrum in-between moments become the focal…

lip mix: i touch myself, a celebration of sexuality and self love in pop music

Bridget Thomas
No comments

Yep, you guessed it – this playlist is about female masturbation. In my teen years, Chrissy Amphlett was one of my heroes. I loved her presence and how unapologetic she was in her determination of her own self-worth as an artist and as a woman. Whenever I sang along to Divinyls in my room, giving…

keeping the imagination alive: post-capitalism, feminist sci-fi and optimism with katie stelmanis of austra

Samantha Armatys

‘Connie got up from her kitchen table and walked slowly to the door…’ So begins Marge Piercy’s feminist sci-fi classic, Woman on the Edge of Time, an allegorical tale of a woman who can communicate with the future and in doing so stirs a yearning for a more egalitarian world.  I am reading it at…

what lana del rey teaches us about the “perfect” girl

Iryna Byelyayeva
No comments

With today’s power and abundance of social media, it’s very rare to discover an artist’s music without already having some sort of preconceived idea about what you’ll think of them. Lana Del Rey’s music has always been clouded for me with the pervasive opinion that she’s a fake. Little criticism about Lana Del Rey’s career…

Lucky enough to spy tickets to Bjork Digital Dj set for the 2016 Vivid Festival just minutes after their announcement via the Carriageworks Twitter feed, I was tapping away at the ticketing page quicker than you can say ‘no you have bills to pay.’ It’s Bjork; to hell with the financial repercussions. Thus I flew…

more than labels: lianne la havas

Jay Ong
No comments

I first heard of Lianne La Havas upon listening to a Buzzfeed podcast one fateful day, where La Havas had made a guest appearance.  La Havas is a black London-born ‘folk and soul’ singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has infinitely improved my playlist with her music, which ranges from classy soul-jazz to sultry rock. However,…

  David Bowie Is, has finally opened at ACMI, and it is as visually and auditorily as sumptuous as you would expect from the man who has enthralled audiences through music, film and television for generations in just as many glittering and sometimes glum guises. In a time where reality shows churn out mediocre pop…

album review: pretend you’re mine, pearls

Tessa Ryan
No comments

Melbourne band Pearls has just released an album that’s sure to leave a lasting impression on listeners. For a debut album to make such a bold statement about a band’s identity is a huge achievement in itself, but Ellice, Cass and Ryan have made the task seem a lot easier than it probably is. Seemingly…

album review: sometimes I sit and think and sometimes I just sit, courtney barnett

Eloise Baker
No comments

My interest in Courtney Barnett was first piqued because she reminded me of fellow Melbournians, Lower Plenty. I fell swiftly in love with her music because it is strong, wry and steers clear of the ‘music for the masses, perform and grin routine’. Sometimes I Sit And Think and Sometimes I Just Sit is Courtney’s…

festival review: WOMADelaide

Lou Heinrich
One comment

WOMADelaide is not your usual music festival. Sure, there are the teens strutting in groups, with festival-appropriate attire and the right-shaped sunglasses, but there are also toddlers running around the thick grass and, later, small children asleep on their parents’ ponchos spread across the ground. There are picnics and tents for napping and a sense…
