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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
After being announced as headliners for this year’s Groovin The Moo Festival, everyone’s favourite British heartbreakers, The Wombats decided to treat us with some sideshows. Coinciding with the 10 year anniversary of the boys’ first […]
I paid a full $50 ticket fee to see a six song opening set of one of my favourite bands, Camp Cope, last night. Seeing them perform their short but sweet set was well worth […]
It’s been (a little over) 10 years since The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus released their now iconic album Don’t You Fake It. As you may or may not know, the band decided on an anniversary tour to celebrate, in which they would play Don’t You Fake It in full, from start to finish – the way that it was recorded. I was lucky enough to attend the sold-out Sydney leg of the tour on Saturday night (the 6th of May) at the Manning Bar.
Twangy guitars and funky bass are a couple of the things you’re in for if you’re wanting to listen to San Cisco’s new album. Titled ‘The Water’, this is the indie-pop band’s third studio album, […]
