girls listening to girls: stonefield

Iryna Byelyayeva
No comments

I’m listening to the rock tones in Stonefield’s 2016 LP, As Above, So Below, wondering where they were when I was a teen. Not where the four Findlay sisters from rural Victoria (whose music career started when the oldest was fifteen and the youngest was only seven) were – but where was a group of…

memoir: the great escape

Emma Brooker
One comment

I have never been one to free fall into addiction. The hook always skimmed close to my head, but it never latched. So many times, when I was battered and weak. You would think it would be so easy for me to then reach over an uncrossed line for a bottle or pill. I have…

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…

film review: jasper jones

Sarah Randall
No comments

Director Rachel Perkins’ latest film, Jasper Jones, is a powerful and suspenseful coming-of-age drama that will undoubtedly join the likes of Muriel’s Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert in the canon of great Australian films. Adapted from Craig Silvey’s novel of the same name, the film opens in 1969, when young…

memoir: particles

None of it matters. The plastic, the gadgets, the high glossed magazines; the heels with the right brand name, faded out on the soles, from all the running you do to keep in front. Things obtained to make life easier, dull a pain, stroke an ego; to make you feel like you mean something while you hurl…

film review: the love witch

Jessie Adams
No comments

Lip‘s Jessie Adams recently attended an exclusive season of The Love Witch at Melbourne’s Lido Cinemas. Check out her review below. Anna Biller’s second feature film The Love Witch weaves a kaleidoscopic spell in genuine 35mm colour film cinematography, conjuring complicated visions of feminine archetypes, gender politics, and sumptuous 1960s occult fashion and film aesthetics.
