album review: emeli sandé, our version of events

lip magazine
One comment

I feel like there are almost no words to describe the effect of Emeli Sandé’s music on me.  As a smooth and powerfully-voiced woman with a predilection for melancholy tunes, it seems almost inevitable that she’ll draw comparisons to chart-topper du jour, Adele. However, Sandé’s efforts to me seem richer and overall more mature. Adele’s …

album review: battles, gloss drop

Serrin Prior
No comments

Is this you? Do you instinctively shy away from instrumental music and/or music that is described as ‘experimental’? Or, at the very least, do you prepare yourself for it mentally, telling yourself you’ll have to concentrate really hard if you’re to have any chance of ‘getting’ it, and therefore enjoying it? If so, then we…

album review: pala, friendly fires

A word to the wise: do not attempt to do the readings for your winter school Australian politics course with this album going in the background. You will be forced to stop, jump up, and dance around the room like a right fool if you do. Not that this is any way a problem in…

album review: various artists, sweet little bird

Dunja Kay
No comments

Female musicians are not a genre, nor are they sweet little birds. However, if you were trying to gauge as much from listening to this compilation, described as ‘a collection of songs from the world’s finest female storytellers’, you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise. Rather than featuring a broad collection of music whose only commonality…

album review: tiger choir, unicycles

Rose Pullen

My favourite Tasmanian export is Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. She married a prince, mastered another language and is a classy dresser to boot. Actually, until I learnt of Tiger Choir’s existence, I probably couldn’t have named another Tasmanian, so I was understandably curious about what a real Tasmanian band sounded like. Tiger Choir’s debut…

album review: single twin, marcus teague

Freya Dumas
One comment

Marcus Teague is the debut album of Melbourne artist Single Twin. The artist behind Single Twin is Marcus Teague. Marcus Teague used to front Deloris. Marcus Teague was also the name of a smarmy doctor on Neighbours back in 2001. Apparently Marcus Teague had to give permission for the naming of Ramsay Street’s Marcus Teague….

album review: the paper scissors, in loving memory

Serrin Prior
5 comments

No, you haven’t heard this one before. It’s the new album by The Paper Scissors, In Loving Memory – another drop in the ocean that is Australia’s present repertoire of indie music. That sounds a bit harsh. Or overly jaded. So let me expand on that by saying that this is a solid album. I…

album review : yeasayer, odd blood

lip magazine
No comments

(Secretly Canadian, 2010) Following live appearances with MGMT and Beck, Canadian arty, falsetto-voices- echoes-and-cymbals in a blender trio, Yeasayer, have released their second album, Odd Blood. Having read the odd article here and there, I was both intrigued and wary of a band that might be too painfully hip for their own good. Did you…
