FORMER Brisbane barista and folk singer-songwiter Gabriella Cohen has taken her dreamy-sad-beautiful music to Dot Dash & Remote Control Records. Congrats Gabriella! She released her debut album Full Closure and No Details independently in March this year and if you like something a little sparse and wonderfully pensive which a touch of pleasantly odd, then please have a listen. Try this: The album itself unfolds in a mysterious way with a full band but Gabriella Cohen often performs by herself with her electric guitar nevertheless holding audience attention with her own obscureRead More

A 17 year old girl, well beyond her years, sits in her Brisbane home, eating hummus and mixing up a fabulous concoction of procrastination and tears all over her philosophy assignment. While the tears happen to the best of us, procrastination in the form of whipping up a brand new album is something to be admired rather than be related to, but hey, its all in a days work for supreme queen, Asha Jefferies. Emma Whines catches up with the Brisbanite and talks all about her new tunes and why changeRead More

Oh man! Have you heard the new album from Eli Paperboy Reed? I know you cats like soul and gospel with the edges left rough, rocketing through the chord changes like a man trying to get to a secular heaven before the end of the song. Okay maybe you haven’t heard of him cos you are a scene kid or you only listen to early Metallica or haven’t really moved past Australian hip hop. That’s okay, get a load of it. It’s got a sense of style in that tightRead More

If you spend most of your spare time browsing social media, you may have seen the #keepcommunityradio hashtag floating around. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve chosen to ignore it in fear of finding out you’ve been rick rolled into another spiral of memes, but fear not! This little hashtag actually has a whole a lot of meaning for you morning radio goers, that I can bet your bottom dollar, you’ll be interested in.

Picture from Buzzfeed:
It is hard to know how a man should be in his habitus. Here is the first in a series of articles that present an opinion on the matter. Wear your food on your beard: People judge you by how you look and unless you are 12 year old with a tape worm, you are not eating all day, so leaving a trace of food in your beard shows people what they can think of you. Vegans, you know what to do. Oil your beard: Many men do this with specially prepared productsRead More
From Radiohead's official page:

That was until May 1st, where the band’s social media went blank and all of the content from their website erased. Some of Radiohead’s fans also received mysterious leaflets, containing hints to the title of the first single, which dropped only two days after Radiohead went dark. “Burn The Witch” is a haunting, utterly authentic track; and the creepy stop-motion animated musicRead More

Bands To Watch: THE VANNS

I believe that there are three things that makes a band great. Charisma, talent and the ability to make people dance. And when I say dance, I don’t mean bob in the one spot cause you don’t wanna look awkward dance. I mean jumping up and down, head banging, booty groovin’ dancing and boy, do The Vanns know how to deliver. At first I was skeptical. Young bands often have a reputation for being lackadaisical at their live shows  but by the third song they had even the most uptight punters upRead More
