ep review: la musique nouveau, the dunes

Stephen Benko-Nehme
No comments

La Musique Nouveau. The New Music. A bold statement of intent. Particularly so, given The Dunes’ chosen genre.  The often potentially confining sand-box of dream pop / dream gaze has historically allowed little in the way of innovation or experimentation. So does the Adelaide band’s third EP live up to the promise of its title? Opening track…

Rose Pullen
No comments

  Directed by Chris Drummond, Babyteeth, explores the effects of cancer on the families it touches. The production, currently showing at the State Theatre Company of South Australia, Adelaide, also depicts an unusual love story, undoubtedly spurred on by the disease. Fourteen year old Milla (Danielle Catanzariti) meets twenty-five year old Moses (Matt Crook) at a train…

  (Image : Farzaneh Edraki) ‘We’ll have a little moment together and we’ll go home feeling good about shit,’ laughs Jen Cloher to a crowd of onlookers. She picks up a white electric guitar, and starts strumming. UNO players in the café corner set down their cards; the waitress bends to pick up a Melbourne…

theatre review: the glass menagerie

Rose Pullen
No comments

For his last show as the Artistic Director of State Theatre Company of SA, Adam Cook has selected a well-known and much loved author. Tennessee Williams once described The Glass Menagerie as the saddest play he’d ever written. To depict that kind of emotion on the stage as a farewell would be a stunning departure,…

Meet Genevieve, an emerging artist currently primarily dabbling in documentary and portraiture photography, filmmaking and painting pictured here at the Premiere of her film The Three Minute Project, shot by Christopher Arblaster. Her journey to becoming an artist came as an unexpected wave of abstract creativity inspired by Jackson Pollock, as opposed to her original…

Serrin Prior
No comments

The Darkness, a band that some may remember from mid-last decade for their hits ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ and ‘Love On The Rocks With No Ice’, or for lead man Justin Hawkins’ penchant for aerobics outfits and feather boas, broke up in 2006. Luckily, they have recently reformed to go on tour…

adelaide fringe theatre review: all my friends are leaving adelaide

Dunja Kay
No comments

What I expected when I saw Unified Productions’ debut performance of All My Friends Are Leaving Adelaide was something that I’d find hilariously relatable. I expected familiar quips about bailing from the City of Churches to hang out with other locals in Melbourne and/or London. I expected it to be Adelaide-centric and lighthearted. And on…

Big Day Out, Adelaide, 2012

Serrin Prior
No comments

This year was the Big Day Out’s 20th birthday. Of course, it is the 21st birthday that we all celebrate as the big one (though one can only wonder why this is the case in Australia), which may be the reason that the festival was at, ahem, less than full capacity for its Adelaide show….

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…

live music review: the vasco era, adelaide unibar, 26 nov 11

Matt Mercieca
No comments

The city of churches was shaken to its very core and for a change, it wasn’t because of an untimely earthquake. The Vasco Era and Papa vs Pretty, who have recently been touring the country and causing mayhem on stages around Australia, treated Adelaide to a truly captivating show on Saturday night. In recent times,…

Dunja Kay

Adelaide has a lot to answer for (I’m allowed to say that because “Adelaideans” are my in-group). As much as we complain about musicians readily overlooking us on national tours, the support for live music also isn’t that great (a bit of a twofold problem, but that’s a dilemma for another day). But The Jezabels,…

I think you guys know me well enough to know that I love The White Stripes. I was looking through my portfolio on Lip and realized that I’ve never explicitly said that, but my undying love for the Black Keys as well as female musicians makes this a logical assumption. So when Shane McIntyre and…
