Inspired by the Cronulla coastline, Caravãna Sun describe themselves as “a frenetic fusion of gypsy-fuelled ska surf rock”. I caught up with their bass player Ant Beard when they played at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi recently… The band name comes from… where the North African coastline meets the Mediterranean Sea. Our hometown is… […]

Pigeon – A Bottomless Keg Of Creativeness

I really hate birds. ‘Rodents of the air’ I like to call them. They have beaks, they’re angry, they crap on you and they’re dirty. Pigeons are the worst of all, so you can imagine the surprise I felt when I listened to Brissy band Pigeon last week and found myself thoroughly enjoying the electro-happy […]

Ben Abraham? More Like Ben Babe-raham

I fell in love with Ben Abraham the first time I saw him play in a Melbourne jazz bar in my early 20s. He talked too much between songs, but we all forgave him when he started playing because he was so bloody good. I was lucky enough to catch him supporting Emmylou Harris in […]

You Know, Leopard?

Sydney four-piece I Know Leopard have come a long way from the one-pub Adelaide Hills town where they met, and they’ve brought some seriously delicious old school pop vibes with them. Not only do they boast one of the coolest ‘how we named the band’ stories I’ve heard thus far, they’ve got a sweet new […]

New Empire – An Emotional Journey

I once had to attend a gig for work, reviewing an American pop-punk band that shall thus remain unnamed. I was less than impressed with my assignment but nevertheless decided to take the good with the bad and just get it done. Things got worse when I rocked up an hour and a half early, […]

Martha Marlow – Reaching Out To People

Local girl Martha Marlow (and by local, I mean actually local – she hails from Waverley) has already got a number of aces up her sleeve. Support slots for the likes of Matt Corby and Bluejuice, musical heritage in the form of her award-winning double bass playing father, and a stupidly cute face are just […]
