Call them “awkward” as much as you like, but the simple truth is that San Cisco know how to work their magic – and they’ve proven that. Entering triple j’s Unearthed Competition because “it’s just something that you do now”, the Fremantle foursome have gone from strength to strength since uploading their song on the program. Speaking to the band’s drummer, and only female member,...

In 2007 Dave Bloustien successfully proved in court that he was funny, so it comes to no surprise that he can convince a bunch crowd in St Ali’s in South Melbourne of the same thing. The Social Contract is a reprise of Bloustien’s award-winning show from 2009, with a few new bits for good measure.


Bloustien tells the story of a court case that stemmed from a performance on a...

In what appears to be the least cryptic statement of the year, it appears the announcement of an Australian Prince tour is imminent.


Chugg Entertainment (also promoters of the upcoming Radiohead tour among many others) have just updated to Facebook to state:

When I was 18 my friend made me buy a $50 ticket with him to go and see Mystery Jets at The Hi-Fi so he could try and score with some girl he met on last.fm. Similarly to their latest release, the evening ended in disappointment for all. The type of insipid indie-rock you'd expect to hear from a Croydon high school three-piece who think they're alternative because they bought a...

“Summer after high school when we first met / We’d make out in your Mustang to Radiohead.” Way to crud up Radiohead, fuckstick.

Swedish collective Drop Out Orchestra are really hard to write about, as I discovered today. 


They’re shy – shunning media appearances and avoiding social media like the plague, preferring to let their music speak for themselves. Literally. There’s almost nothing online to explain who they are, aside from their jamming cuts of funky disco and infamous remixes of, well, pretty...

Triple j unearthed winners and latest signing to I Oh You records, Snakadaktal seem almost too good to be true. The teenaged band are a perfect synthesis of the best lo-fi pop produced in the last decade. All strange, laid back but urgent arrangements with catchy melodies and thoughtful lyrics, they're at times reminiscent of the retreating wave of French pop vocalists in the tradition of air...

Two of the blissful stalwarts of the 2012 Laneway instalment have announced a joint sideshow.


After a slew of sideshows were dropped last week, fans have been waiting with eager...

Tassie-born singer-songwriter Johnny Gibson sounds awfully young, and writes lyrics like a high schooler, always putting the most simple and obvious foot forward. It’s not bad necessarily; it’s just simple and obvious, which suits his chugging country rock sound. He’s not a natural singer, nasal and straining, but his ineptness is kind of endearing.
