ep review: bloom, the morning birds

Marissa Paine
No comments

The Morning Birds  ‘Bloom’ isn’t an album you sing along to, or even one you put on when you’re getting ready to go out for the night. It is, however, sonically compelling. ‘Bloom’ is a concept album, brought to life not just by the Californian trio, but by noted DJs from around the world. I’ve…

ep review: weird season, major leagues

Bianca Martin
No comments

  Weird Season is the debut EP from Brisbane four-piece Major Leagues, a shoegaze/dream-pop band relatively new on the music scene. This EP doesn’t sound like a debut release though, instead sounding like an offering from a seasoned band. Opening with the fuzzy guitar and sweet vocals of ‘Silver Tides’, you’re immediately drawn into the…

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…

ep review: slow motion music, oliver tank

Marissa Paine
No comments

Oliver Tank’s second EP, Slow Motion Music is dramatic from the first few notes of ‘Stay’. The track, featuring the ethereal vocals of Fawn Myers, employs the use of percussion, synth and reverb to create a sonic landscape full of open spaces. Right from the outset, it is clear that this EP will be a…

ep review: closer, thief

Louie Smith
One comment

Thief’s Closer is the type of EP you can listen to over and over, without ever growing tired of the sounds. It is rare to see an artist transition from one style of music to another so flawlessly, but Thief has done just that. A synthesizer and a broken heart have coupled together to create…

interview: rosie catalano

Rhiannon Tuffield
No comments

 Rosie Catalano possesses an air of ethereality that many of us can only derive from films or fairytales. Her hauntingly beautiful songs and whimsical video clips transport you to an Alice in Wonderland-esque world – where everything beautiful has something to hide. Rosie’s combination of dreamy vocals and gentle guitar work captivates the listener alone,…

ep review: ornithology, the adelaide crows

Elyssia Bugg
No comments

Naming your band after a less than stellar AFL team may seem like a strange, even unwise move. Particularly in a country that draws some of it’s deepest battle lines with football scarves. But once you’ve heard Ornithology, the debut EP from The Adelaide Crows, you’ll be hard pressed to think of a more appropriate…

The result of this tryst would be The Great Imposter, a Melbourne-based, piano-led, cabaret-rock troupe, arriving on the scene with their debut EP Find Structure Through the…

ep review : black lakes, only for the woods

Rhiannon Tuffield
No comments

  If you close your eyes as you listen to the opening track on Only for the Woods, you will feel as though you’ve been transported to another land. Imagine warm fires, worn picnic rugs, and a camp of gypsies dancing, clapping, and playing their guitars, banjos, and loud drums. The exotic food, beautiful wagons,…

interview: jac stone

Dunja Kay
No comments

The advent and resulting clutter of Internet media has made it rather difficult for musicians to get themselves noticed. Supports for major bands are revered, festival line-ups coveted with even the smallest slots reserved for the creamiest crop the scouts can find. Jac Stone can now tick these two milestones off her to-do list, having…
