Ulladulla’s Best Export

Ulladulla not only boasts Rowan’s Arcade stalwart Funland (the best wet day boredom breaker ever) and a mean schnitty at the local Ex-Servos, it is also home to remix king and certified party starter DJ Yahtzel. Having survived the bloodbath that is Ulladulla’s Marlin Hotel, DJ Yahtzel will be playing alongside some of Australia’s biggest […]

Crooked Colours – A One-Way Ticket To Sweatville

Perth band Crooked Colours are really good. Yes, it’s an awkward way to start an article, but I swear to you they are really good. Their newly released debut EP ‘In Your Bones’ is all sexy vocals over killer electro beats and choruses that range from haunting to happy. Having recently wrapped a support slot […]

Spookyland – Rock And Roll Weaklings

Darkness has always been sexy, and there’s something decidedly dark about Sydney four-piece Spookyland that runs far deeper than just their name. Their bluesy, melodic storytelling both lulls and unnerves. They’re also kinda sexy dudes too. Signed to Monday Records and fronted by the surprisingly young Marcus Gordon, the boys are putting the final touches […]

Client Liaison – Bringing Big Hair And Bad Suits Back To The Fore

The 1980s/90s is a time that many of us, myself included, would like to forget – mainly for the bad hair and even worse fashion choices. Melbourne boys ‘Client Liaison’, a.k.a. Harvey Miller and Monte Morgan, however, have chosen to embrace the decades when synth was still king and pop music brought us far more […]

Caravãna Sun – Keen To Share Backyard Barbecues

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 […]

Hard To Hate… Little May

Theirs is the kind of music that is hard to hate. Sydney three-piece Little May have got the indie-folk chick thing down pat, but their new single ‘Hide’ reveals a darker side to their music (dubbed ‘ghost-folk’), which I’m kinda digging. And by kinda, I mean really. It’s sexy, it’s ethereal, and I can’t wait […]

Read on if you’re ready to look resort-chic on your next warm weather holiday. You’ll need mostly lightweight summery pieces so take a full fashion arsenal. Even with all […]

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 […]
