Easy Star All Stars @ The Hi-Fi

It’s rare you get to use the words ‘dub’ and good in the same sentence… Stepping into the Hi-Fi on what could only be described as a bloody freezing night, the atmosphere inside was much the opposite. The ambiance was warm and loving as I quickly grabbed a drink and made my way into the […]

Art of Sleeping – Like a Thief EP

Not to be confused with Hail to the Thief… When listening to Art of Sleeping’s second extended play, I can’t help but be brought back to the times I spent lying on that massive hill at the Lorne site of Falls Festival as Fleet Foxes played in the background. I’m also transported back to the […]

Regurgitator @ The Hi-Fi

It’s odd to think that the band I saw playing at the Hi-Fi Melbourne the other night have been playing and making music for as long as I’ve been alive. Regurgitator celebrated 19 years as a band in 2012 and they did it in a manner the likes of which they’ve never attempted before. Regurgitator’s […]

Beach House – Bloom

Build yourself a myth… This is a long overdue review of one of my favourite albums released this year. Beach House came out with the eagerly anticipated follow up to their third record Teen Dream earlier this year. Bloom is just as its title alludes; a band blossoming and growing into themselves. Dream pop at […]

Daughn Gibson – All Hell

Dat voice… I first caught wind of Daughn Gibson earlier this morning, when I heard a delightfully trancey live performance at Pitchfork’s unofficial music festival they were streaming on YouTube. Admittedly I was hoping that I’d catch Death Grips perform their set, alas it wasn’t meant to be as the timing of my little sister […]

The Rolling Stones: “50 Years and Counting Tour” Announced

Well it’s alright now… Finally. After months of speculation and a new greatest hits compilation released, iconic rock band The Rolling Stones have announced that they will play two shows in London next month, to mark their fiftieth anniversary as a band. MusicFeeds broke the news recently, after the band tweeted pictures of their gear […]

Winter People – A Year At Sea

When diving into Australian indie darlings Winter People’s debut long-player, A Year at Sea, the first impression you get is that you’re greeted with a couple of things. Sophisticated melodies and hypersensitive lyrical construction envelope what is, in all respects, a very ambitious record for the young six-piece. Indeed, they proclaim in an early track […]

John Butler Trio @ Federation Square

Heading along to Federation Square on Friday night, I wasn’t that sure I was going to enjoy my night, despite being in the company of incredible musicians. This may sound weak, but it was bloody cold. But this night was about much more than great music. The crowd, a few thousand strong, had gathered to […]

More Falls Music and Arts Festival Acts

It’s a big morning for lineup announcements with Future just dropped, and Falls giving us another helping of acts. Of course now we’re getting toward the end of the lineup so things will be getting a little smaller, but none the less it’s all exciting. Rodrigo Y Gabriela are a Mexican acoustic guitar duo who […]

Future Music Festival Lineup Revealed

In a tough festival climate, it’s impressive to get any semblance of a lineup that will make the masses happy. Then how is it that Future continually manage to top the previous years line up each and ever time? Last year we saw New Order, Swedish House Mafia, The Wombats, Die Antwoord and many more […]
