Winterbourne + Black Rabbit George – Review

Opener, Black Rabbit George is far too good to be a warm-up for the main feature. His folksy acoustic tunes harken back to an earlier era, think Bob Dylan at the Gaslight and you’d be pretty close to the money. Those who have arrived early move closer to the stage and lean in as his set progresses. This reviewer’s personal favourite was a tune relating the tale of an unfortunate accident involving his guitar and the Sex Pistols. We’re keen to hear more from Black Rabbit George. A near capacityRead More

Moving out for a rock n roll party

West TheBarton Brothel Party. Controversial name, but they really are rock n roll, after all. Just have a listen to this bloody good new single. And they’re from Adelaide. I am gonna say the best Adelaide band around right now. The band was one of the standouts of Bigsound last year with the growling vocals, flavour for the rock beat to sink cool ones and show everyone your armpit hair. Check out the new single ‘Moving Out’ and then check the touring dates below.   Saturday March 25 The HillsRead More

Firefly, Dollhouse and Selfie were great shows that wereRead More

In:Most – With You – Review

Man what a track! The new song “With You” by Brisbane/Cambridge Drum & Bass duo In:Most is such a refreshing take on typical Drum & Bass tracks. The intro to the song starts off with a vinyl crackle and a fast paced arp melody. I can already tell it’s going to be good. Then the percussion hits, so neat and smoothly produced. The rest of the song boasts luscious soft synths and vocal samples. Definitely a track to listen to on your daily commute. “With You” is part of theRead More

Recent single reviews include an illness, a gamer, a pet, some concrete and another flashback. “Fever” – Mosaic By Jack Giess   I’m always listening to catchy Soundcloud tracks with my over-priced headphones on the train on the way home from school. It gives me ideas for my own songs like different ideas for drum fills, synth work, and groovy drum patterns. One particularly stressful day on the way home from school, my good friend Thomas Adamson was editing an overly aesthetic music video for what he described “some vaporwaveRead More

WAAX’s Same Same Video Released

BY MARIAH JAEGER Brisbane band WAAX blessed us with a new single called ‘Same Same’ late last year and now here is the video clip! This rock heavy track is catchy with chopped up guitar riffs and gritty vocals. The band’s frontwoman Marie DeVita has strong lyrics and a voice that brings an edge of punk to the track. Since the worldwide premiere on Triple J on the 14th of November, the track has been a hit, gaining instant praise. WAAX also released a music video to accompany the song,Read More

Dune Rats Do It For The Kids

The thing I love about the Dune Rats is they never pretend to be anything they’re not and on sophomore release “The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit” they are sticking with the tried and true; bombastic pop-punk anthems that your parents will hate. Lyrically this set of tunes will appeal to high school and college kids who want to party. 6 pack, Braindead, Scott Green and Bullshit will have them nodding, giggling, jumping and winking along. While the lyrical content is low-brow the melodies are as catchy as all getRead More

Single Reviews: February 2017 Part 1

A rundown of recent singles as part of a special… “Grown Man” – Dr Sinha’s Jazz Lobotomy  By LM   ‘Grown Man’ is not like anything I have heard before, yet at the same time, reminds me of 15 different artists. The experimental jazz guitar is intricate but simple, the scat vocals are sparse but blend well with the kind of rap vocals the singer is spitting. The song has a groovy feel, a lot of which is given by the  offbeat drums. The singing style has quite a uniqueRead More

Cold Pie and Hot Tunes at Foundry Records

When I was a kid I liked to grab some left over shepherds pie from the fridge for breakfast, maybe that’s why I enjoyed the live set from two-piece Cold Pie at Foundry Records on Saturday. The band play a brand of rock that has links to the past. Think The Kinks and The Easybeats. It’s simple stuff but infectious at the same time. For a two-piece they have enough going on to keep the punters interested. The lads add a modern twist and a healthy dose of punk attitudeRead More
