Collaborations usually begin with mutual respect and a desire to work together. That can be the easy bit; harder is working out “what should we do?” Artistic Director of Ranters Theatre Adriano Cortese and James Tyson, a theatre and dance curator in Cardiff, already had a previous working relationship. “He’s presented our work a number of times and he just happens to also write music,”...

Break-up albums are a dime a dozen, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a more lighthearted breakup album than La Sera’s Sees The Light. Opening song Love That’s Gone has all intentions of being an introverted, self-pitying song going by its title and musical style, but when Katy Goodman kicks things off with the lyric ‘I love my life without you’, it suggests something quite different. After...

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,...

When Jonathon O’Neill, vocalist of Melbourne four-piece Loki answers the phone on a Friday night, he’s in the middle of reading a good book. While many through the city are gearing up to spend their hard-earned dollars on possible liver damage, O’Neill opts for My Heart Wanders by Pia Jane Bijkerk.

Between appearances at some of Australia’s most reputable festivals, it was a big summer for The Medics. Though they originated from the far north of Queensland, the band has slowly established themselves as mainstays in the Brisbane scene. And after a summer spent gigging at Big Day Out, Laneway and Festival of the Sun, the band is ready to use the experiences they had over the...

With zero exposure to any of Krystle Warren’s music, I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at The Toff Tuesday evening. After taking a seat, my friend and I both noticed how diverse the crowd was, which interested us. With a colourful mix bag audience, I began creating high expectations about the universality of her music.

Love At the Bottom Of the Sea is a return to the Domino label for The Magnetic Fields after a trio of synthesizer-free albums, but it’s a few good songs short of a return to form. Love is the theme once again and all the gang are back, ensuring there are snatches of 69 Love Songs’ greatness.

Four years has been the biggest gap between Lambchop albums, but when Kurt Wagner’s gruff, gentle vocal cuts in with the lyric ‘Don't know what the fuck they talk about’ on the new album’s opening song If Not I’ll Just Die, it’s as if they’d never been away. And just like that particular lyric, Wagner hasn’t paid any mind to what has been happening outside...

With their debut Burn, Melburnians The Vendettas have released a ten -song all-guns-blazing barroom-brawl of an album. Beer-soaked and sweaty, the whole thing reeks of a good time. High octane alcohol fuelled riffs, addictively catchy melodies and fist pumping rhythms combine to create a solid and exciting effort that will have any fans of countrymen AC/DC and Airbourne or Swedes The...

It might seem like a funny pairing to some, but award-winning producer Mark Ronson “swooped in at the last minute and saved the day” according to vocalist/bassist Jared Swilley from lo-fi garage kings Black Lips. Ronson may be known for polishing songs to a shimmering and slick finish but in the case of Black Lips, he hasn't messed too much with a good thing. Thrown a suit jacket on them...
