Big Day Out 2013 @ Flemington Racecourse

Another year, another Big Day Out comes and goes and another batch of sunburnt 15 year olds, disgruntled mid-twenties musos and 40-something year old die hard fans head home, bludgeoning Metro with their sweaty, tired bodies. It’s a part of my calandar every year, so I headed along to Flemington Racecourse, giving up my Hottest […]

High Highs @ The Toff in Town

According to High Highs Last Fm profile their major influence is ‘silence’. Judging by their live performance I wouldn’t disagree. “This is our first show as a band in Australia” front man of High Highs Jack Milas explained half way through his set at the Toff in Town. This may not seem so odd when […]

Groovin’ The Moo 2013 Lineup Rumours + Event Information

Another one of these bad boys. I get to go through and suss out who is playing the regional touring festival throughout April/May. So, here we go. Let’s see who I think I can confirm. Confirmed The Might Be Giants – They mentioned earlier last week that they had a tour planned for April/May but […]

Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob

In their time, the musical world of Canada have given us a lot to love. In the last year alone we’ve had a farewell tour for post-hardcore juggernauts Alexisonfire, a resoundingly praised record from Grimes, and the return of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Unfortunately, in 2013 we cannot add ‘top notch release from Tegan and […]

Yo La Tengo – Fade

When a band have been around for almost thirty years, theoretically it becomes relatively easy to identify the genre that their music falls into. However, meet Yo La Tengo: they don’t make it easy. One could definitely label them with that gaping void of a genre we call ‘alternative rock’, but that would be lazy. […]

Falls Music and Arts Festival @ Lorne

I attended my first falls last year when the Arctic Monkeys headlined and I fell in love with it. The atmosphere of the four days is one comparable to the perfect combination of the patricians of Harvest and the party goers at a festival like Future Music Festival. The atmosphere remained the same as my […]

Laneway 2013 Lineup Revealed

Well I think I may have predicted more than five of the bands on this killer lineup. Once again the guys from Laneway are bringing a fantastic array of underground and independent artists to our shores for a national tour. Are there any surprises? Sure. I never picked Real Estate to back so soon after […]

Muse-The 2nd Law

I struggled to write the first sentence of this review for about fifteen minutes. Normally when writing a review, you have a couple of options with your opening line. It can give backing information on the album or band, perhaps it gives away the general theme of the record or even what you think of […]

Band of Horse-Mirage Rock

Maybe if I get close enough it’ll disappear, and the real album will come to form… Mirage Rock is an apt title for this, the fourth release from southern rock group, Band of Horses. The entire album is supporting the illusion of rock music that contemporary music is supporting. With every album that Band of […]

Darwin Deez Confirms 2013 Australian Tour

We have one very excited Fletch right now. Maybe it’s the whiskey I’ve just downed, but when I found out that Darwin Deez confirmed an Australian tour I flipped my shit. Here’s the announcement he posted on his Facebook page. Peoples, peoples, peoples, We’re back. Fuckin FINALLY, right?! Yes, the new album is almost done. […]
