album review: going to hell, the pretty reckless

Tessa Ryan
No comments

If you know Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl but aren’t familiar with The Pretty Reckless, you might be surprised to know that it’s her voice you’re hearing when you press play. She is often compared to Courtney Love, perhaps because she’s a blonde with feisty vocals and killer stage presence. The Pretty Reckless made a…

interview: gareth liddiard, the drones

Marissa Paine
No comments

‘Dreams are like stars. They’re there during the day, but you just can’t see them’. That’s the Carl Sagan quote that Gareth Liddiard of The Drones paraphrases to explain the music on the band’s sixth studio album, I Sea Seaweed. If I’d been hoping to get a solid answer about the album’s concept,  I would…

album review: huntronik, huntronik

Christine Campbell
One comment

I’ve got to be honest with you: when I get album review requests, I end up ignoring most of them. It’s not because I don’t think there’s good music out there begging to be reviewed (there’s a lot of good music out there, period), it’s really just more of a timing thing. PR companies typically…

interview: Oh Pep!

Christine Campbell
2 comments

When I first got the email about interviewing Oh Pep!, the adorably catchy folk-rock-indie quintet based out of Melbourne, I couldn’t help but think how clever it was that leading ladies Olivia Hally (guitar/vocals) and Pepita Emmerichs (violin/mandolin) creatively married their names to come up with something that perfectly describes their style of music. The more I…

interview : the darkness

Zoya J. Patel
No comments

You would be forgiven for having to jog your memory to recall who exactly The Darkness are. No doubt you’ll have a niggling feeling that you’ve heard the name before, maybe you’ll hear a wailing falsetto in the recesses of your mind, but the image may seem a little blurry. Be prepared for the memories…

album review: blackbells, IxI

Christine Campbell
No comments

It’s been a while since I’ve heard a really good, musically sound rock album. In the past five years, it has become rare to see a rock band that is just a tried-and-true rock band with no other gimmicks. As production technology advances and computerization becomes increasingly standardized, it becomes a little difficult to find…

album review: joan of arc, life like

Emma Schenk
No comments

I must admit that Joan of Arc’s new album Life Like isn’t something I would usually listen to. Its guitar heavy riffs mixed with forced lyrics is hard to listen to at first for an Indie fanatic. But I’m certainly not against experimenting with new tastes and after a few songs, I could certainly appreciate…
