Old smoky throat has a new album out on February 3 called Old Ideas, his first new record in eight years. The lead single is slinky and jazzy – maybe a little too jazzy, to be honest, but let’s forgive him his geriatric foibles and bathe in the still shiver-inducing romantic decay that he weaves with his words: “I caught the darkness / It was drinking from your cup / I said is...

Donavon Frankenreiter’s passion for music and surfing is undeniable. For much of the last decade he has travelled the world, playing music and surfing wherever and whenever he could; his love for both never wavering since he first discovered them as a child. Now he has packed his acoustic guitar and his surfboard and he’s getting ready to head down to Australia for a mammoth run of...

Many people may think that British act Bush is an early to mid '90s one hit wonder band, with their 1994 album Sixteen Stone and its massive worldwide smash hit single Glycerine their only real moment in the sun. Truth of the matter however, is that The Sea Of Memories is their fifth album, it's just that it comes after a decade long hiatus.

Last week, I had a really surreal experience. I spent the better part of Friday afternoon backstage with Opeth. I was supposed to be there to interview them about their gear, but got lost talking and smoking with Mikael Åkerfeldt under the red lights while techs cut the ends off guitar strings and Martin Axenrot's flares grew with each passing second. It dawned on me...

He doesn't sound like a 61-year-old man, be it conversationally or musically. He's disarmingly modest and polite: even though Nick Lowe wrote (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding , to this day he isn't bothered a whit that it's credited to Elvis Costello. He was in the thick of punk and new wave, but never let himself be identified with either movement, even though he was...

I still remember the days when the amount of decent international bands making the long trip down south to play in this country was pretty lame to say the least. And if any of them did come out to tour they were usually either really bad stadium rock bands or bloated pop stars. How things have changed huh. The constant stream of excellent and, especially as seems to be the case in much more...

The angelic voice of Florence Welch is back in our lives, and we can't be happier.


Following on from her multi-million selling, multi-award winning, global smash of a debut album ‘Lungs’, the as yet untitled album was recorded in the famous Studio 3 of Abbey Road Studios. We're talking the same studio that held the creations of the The Beatles' Revolver album, as well as Pink...

As an Australian of Irish descent, I get mixed feelings around Saint Patrick's day. On one hand, I can't wait to get outside and start drinking singing and head butting my cousins, on the other, I despair at how everyone in Melbourne suddenly claims Irish heritage as an excuse to get fuck-eyed. It's kind of insulting - they don't realise that's there's more to being Irish than Jimeoin,...

It's been an absolute whirlwind for firebrand Melbourne rock act Calling All Cars. March 2010 saw them release their debut album Hold Hold Fireto critical acclaim and adulation from an ever growing fan base. Indeed, that fan base expanded exponentially when the band went on the road supporting the almighty behemoth AC/DC across Australia on their Black Ice Tour, playing in front of crowds of...

It's been a while since Cut Off Your Hands burst forth as one of New Zealand's biggest players on the international stage. The angular guitar hooks that defined their pre-LP work evolved into something more distinctly resolute for their full-length debut You & I (2008). Since You & I , the band has undergone some minor shuffling of the ranks - which bought up existentialist queries...
