curated playlist: rockin’ the suburbs with amy of the royal parks

Samantha Armatys
No comments

Melbourne based, The Royal Parks, have just recently released their debut album Suburb Home. Made up of ten languid and dreamy tracks recorded with Noah Georgeson (who has previously recorded the likes of Joanna Newson and Devendra Banheart), it is a must listen for those contemplative tram rides and sleepless late nights. We recently asked front woman…

No comments

Ali Barter is kick-ass female musician whose songs Cigarette and Girlie Bits you’ve probably already heard (and know by heart) – and if you haven’t, we’ll give you a moment to go discover them now. Other than being an incredible artist, Barter is a feminist who is not afraid to speak out about the double…

Samantha Armatys
No comments

You’ve probably heard the name IV League because they are a band that have been killing it on the Australian music scene since they appeared in 2015. Hailing from Melbourne, the group began as a duo with partners Bella Venutti and Lachie Gilmour messing around in their garage, before expanding to a four piece with…

live review: oh pep! at howler, 28.04.2017

Iryna Byelyayeva
No comments

When I first walked into Howler’s spacious band room the crowd was sparse but the warm, orange and yellow lighting was already setting the mood. Closet Straights didn’t keep us waiting long, bringing their cool, folky vibes to the stage. Their country-esque fashion sense, rolling guitar riffs and the warm lighting transformed the empty room…

‘I was noble like a knight, I was lucent like a light, I was taller than a tower when I stayed within your sight…’  When you find yourself singing along to a poetic and emotionally rich ballad on the radio, you might not expect the words to be penned by an eighteen year old girl…

No comments

Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs, aka Oh Pep!, have just returned home to Melbourne when I catch up with one half of the duo for a quick chat. They could be forgiven for briefly forgetting where home is, having completed six stints of touring in the USA over the past two years. ‘When we go…

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…

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…

Eloise Baker
No comments

  Like This – Al Parkinson Al’s music will make you smile, cry or both. Whether she’s strumming her uke or a capella, stark and bluesy,  Al’s performances are staggering. You’ll know what I mean if you’ve ever seen her perform ‘Story Song’. It’s the sensual blues and Johnny Cash simplicity which form the footings…

triple j’s hottest 100 (white guys) of the last 20 years

Alexandra Van Schilt

Disclaimer: As much as I want to be (and probably should be) outraged about the songs that made the cut for Triple J’s Top 100 Hottest Songs of the past 20 years, I actually love the majority of the songs and artists. Jeff Buckley had one of the most amazing voices ever, I have posters…
