live review: oh pep! at howler, 28.04.2017

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…

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…

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…

I first heard of Lianne La Havas upon listening to a Buzzfeed podcast one fateful day, where La Havas had made a guest appearance.  La Havas is a black London-born ‘folk and soul’ singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has infinitely improved my playlist with her music, which ranges from classy soul-jazz to sultry rock. However,…

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…

Over a warm beverage in The Rocks I caught up with The Khanz’s front man Themba and multi-instrumentalist Kat. I wanted to find out what they’ve been up to (musically) since Lipmag first interviewed them back in November. A lot it turns out, as they’ve been in a constant state of writing new songs, recording…

fiona apple and female musicians of today: is there a comparison?

Christine Campbell

About a week ago, tickets went on sale here in New York for a performer I’d do anything to see: Fiona Apple. Fiona Apple is one of the most influential artists in my overall musical taste. After seeing her “Criminal” video when I was in third or fourth grade, I was immediately captivated. I was…

When Adelaide residents say, ‘everyone knows everyone in Adelaide’, it’s not quite meant in a literal sense. It’s pretty easy to get around the city (so no one bothers travelling more than 15 minutes in any direction), people choose their universities according to convenience of location (so you end up clustered with your high school…
