TRIPLE J’s highly esteemed and anticipated J awards were announced yesterday. The awards saw Melbourne-based producer and vocalist, Chet Faker, as number album for the year that was. Nicholas Murphy – the man behind the caramel-coated vocals and swift beat making, told DSCVR he was “…never really into music” but when he turned fifteen he started “…playing guitar, piano, making beats on (his) computer…” The rest is pure history. The 12-track studio album, a balanced hybrid of electronica and indie, has a banquet of tracks to suit various listeners. FromRead More

Anyway Peril flipped that to 1200 Techniques and we all thought it was really dope. 3: What madeRead More

Affecting Cause Effects

Hard rocking locals Cause In Affect pound the bitumen soon to promote their new album Seraph, with dates starting in Brisbane on Friday at the New Globe Theatre. As an interesting experiment the band had a filmmaker present for the duration of the Seraph recording and have produced a feature length film on the process, which can also be seen in smaller sections as per below: The progressive rock sounds of the band incorporate “ambient soundscapes” of a “dystopian world” but why don’t you have a listen and see whatRead More
