Let me begin by saying I was beyond ecstatic upon learning that I’d be seeing Lewis Watson play live. His latest record, ‘midnight’ was a release I’d counted down the days to listen to. Needless […]
‘midnight’ is Lewis Watson’s latest release. The singer-songwriter was able to give us some insight into his touring life and divulge some information about the inner-workings of the record, mid-way through his Australian tour. Watson […]
After releasing their second album Everything is Forgotten in March of this year, Perth band Methyl Ethel announced a national album tour which would take place throughout the month of May. This tour ran after […]
Linkin Park are a rock band from California who burst onto the scene with Hybrid Theory in 2000. I’m
ashamed willing to admit that their debut is probably on my ‘all time favourite album’ list due to how young me thought it was the coolest god-damn thing in the world. I would play my CD constantly on a walkman and force my Dad to listen to it on car-trips. I wanted to be vocalist Chester Bennington when I grew up. The unique blend of alternative rock, metal and electronic elements makes it a guilty pleasure listen for me even now, where more pretentious me can say I enjoy it for the good production and clever songwriting.
Flash-forward to 2017 and the band is copping flak from fans and press alike with their new album One More Light. Many have accused them of selling out with a drastically different pop sound totally unlike anything they have done before. I stopped listening to Linkin Park around the time Minutes to Midnight came out, so I thought this new, critically divisive album would be the perfect time to dip my toes back in.
Paramore have been on this ride for a while now. It was eleven years ago that they dropped their debut album “All We Know Is Falling” and the world fell in love with Hayley Williams […]
Big-hitter trio Rascal Flatts have returned to the foreground of country music with their new album titled ‘Back To Us’ (released May 19). This is their tenth studio album, following 2014’s ‘Rewind’. The record was […]
Chances are if you’ve grown up in Australia over the last 25 years you know at least one Frenzal Rhomb song. It might have offended you, it might have made you laugh or you may […]
On the eve of his upcoming show at Splendour in the Grass, ARIA nominated artist Kite String Triangle has just announced his upcoming debut (and self titled) album with the release of a new single. It’s called ‘The Prize’ and it features Bridgette Amofah, who you might know better as Rudimental.
I’ll confess; I am not a regular punk-rocker. Before I pulled up Spotify, I was under the impression Tired Lion was some sort of folksy indie band, populated by sad Irish men with beards. Still, […]
If you haven’t heard of Frenzal Rhomb, I can guarantee that your Dad or Uncle probably has. With 26 years experience under their belt, Frenzal Rhomb are just weeks away from releasing their 9th studio album ‘Hi-Vis High Tea’. I was lucky enough to catch up with lead guitarist/backing vocalist Lindsay McDougall (you may also know him as former Triple J host ‘The Doctor’) to have a chat about what the band’s been up too lately.
Looking for some fresh new tunes? Well boy, do I have news for you! Tasmanian indie-rockers Chase City are back with a brand new single called A-N-X-T, recorded and produced by none other than ARIA winning Magoo (AKA Lachlan Goold).
