album review: voices, phantogram

Eloise Baker
No comments

  Released late February, Phantogram’s Voices evokes a warning or premonition, with its soaring synths, determined vocals, sharp hip-hop beats and the frequent themes of death, stars, love and dreams. Similar to the Nine Inch Nails album The Fragile, it makes you feel as though you are moving even when you’re not. A complex and…

Appleonia (Jessica Kahn in her downtime) is literally feeding people with music. The singer, born in Argentina, bred in Australia, has developed a model that she says is a ‘win win’. For every free album ‘bought’, Vittoria Coffee has committed to donating the monetary equivalent of three meals to OzHarvest, a non-for-profit that takes excess…

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…

Marissa Paine
No comments

With the Broods EP, Georgia and Caleb Nott prove – like so many before them – that something special happens when you make music with your sibling. Maybe it’s that thicker than water bond or maybe it’s the fact that if anyone can tell you off, it’s your family, but there is a harmony to…

album review: primal rumble, gretchen lohse

Elyssia Bugg
No comments

Whimsical lyrics, wistful vocals and the occasional banjo twang make up the sound of Primal Rumble, the newest release from Yellow Humphrey’s Gretchen Lohse. With less of a warrior-like growl and more of a breathy, melodic sigh, Lohse tells folksy stories of heartache, pining, loving and longing that are as undeniably pleasant as they are…

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…

Marissa Paine
No comments

From the first gentle strains of The Earth, the Sea, the Moon and the Sky, the elegant Catherine Traicos casts a spell over listeners. Opening track, ‘One by One’ showcases her interesting, layered voice, subtle and full. The quiet track gives way to ‘All the Angels’, which uses guitar to weave a trail for listeners…

Have you ever come home after a long day at work, and figured it would be easier to eat cheese on toast, than to cook something healthy? We’ve all been there – groceries take time, it’s too hard to think of stuff to make, and frankly, eating badly is often cheaper. Those are all pretty…

is society obsessed with size?

Christina Bulbrook
No comments

Image via Ron Henry Photography Bigger is better. The age-old phrase rings startlingly true at certain points in our lives (think: tracksuit pants, that glass of wine after a hard day, Anne Hathaway’s smile).  However, certain people will still frequently disagree, claiming compactness is the new black. Being of the generation who reached puberty just…

No comments

Parisian Couture Week arrives to us wrapped up in a whole lot of ethical issues; the age and weight of models on the runways frequently generates media discussion and the astronomical costs of the Couture pieces themselves are impossible for some to justify, causing them to just tune out. But to brush aside Couture Week…
