Bon Iver

Posted 10 Jul 2014 @ 12:43pm


It’s hard to get past the irritating pulse that dominates the entirety of Heavenly Father, sounding like an offcut from the Flume LP sans any beat. Regardless, the track is low-tier Bon Iver, as if the garish instrumentation is only there to salvage what would otherwise be a complete fucking snooze-fest. Speaking of complete fucking snooze-fests, the track is lifted from Zach Braff’s...

It was no surprise that Bon Iver (aka Bonnie Bear) managed to sell out the massive Sidney Myer Music Bowl, leaving plenty of fans disappointed.

Be quick, as the GA tickets will sure to be snapped up quickly.


Update: All tickets now sold out!

A crunchy 808 beat and snowy synth notes; a high and distant lead vocal and overall sense of magic and sadness. [youtube]9_g0TpTmIIk[/youtube]



What A Little Bit Of Love Can Do

I don’t why I like it so much, it’s just weirdly awesome. Makes me want to don cowboys boots have sex with an old man, and...

Aunty Meredith has done it again. 


This time around, the Golden Plains crew have added Jersey indie-delights Real Estate, and local garage kings Total Control to the already astounding bill for Golden Plains Sixxx. A sonic smorgasboard of a line-up, the exciting new additions join the likes of Bon Iver, Black Lips, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Roky...

Into the Flame is a frighteningly sincere EP for a man only in his early 20s. The opening song Brother is its strongest track and possibly Corby's best release to date. It's hard to avoid singing along to the soulful vocals and growling chorus and at times it seems inspired by fellow Aussies Cloud Control. Perhaps only its length will limit its possibilities as a radio hit.

22-year-old Trevor Powers has released a heartbreaking album of indie esoterica called The Year of Hibernation and this is our lead single. With its crunchy 808 beat and snowy synth notes, high and distant lead vocal and overall sense of magic and sadness, Cannons evokes Bon Iver and Sigur Ros, and the emotional fragility of Sufjan Stevens. A nostalgic, quietly devastating tune.

At the forefront of the contemporary ethereal electronic rnb movement, How To Dress Well is making his Australian debut later this year. 


The Brookly-based artist, real name Tom Krell, burst upon the independent scene with his 2010 release Love Remains. Since then, 2011 has seen the release of his Just Once EP, and seen widespread global critical acclaim, with Spin describing...

Your name:

Jack Parsons.


Your band’s name:

The Pretty Littles.


What’s the deal with the band’s name:

I don’t like your tone... just a shit-hot collection of words of no relevance to anything really, that were kind of said in I Am The Walrus describing a policeman.


Define your sound in five words or less:

Bang, Slap,...

I had a soft spot for the first album by The War On Drugs, and I’m pleasantly surprised to find their follow-up Slave Ambient so appealing. Slave Ambient is sublime alt-pop with droney inclinations, never far from the warmth of early-era My Morning Jacket or Midlake. There's also the aura of Kurt Vile permeating here, like a vein running throughout, which brings these songs that much closer to...
