So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

Oscar and Martin (Oscar + Martin)


Define your genre in five words or less:
"just a couple of guys appreciating some architecture."


Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
A lot of people say we sound kind of nostalgic, or like sentimental but in a genuine way I...

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

Spell House (formerly known as Frames) are four guys creating bizarre sounds in a shed out the back of the drummer's house. Sometimes we begrudgingly recreate these noises in a live setting for people to listen.

People tend to come away...

I feel as though Sweet Sour, the third album from English trio Band Of Skulls, has been released ten or so years too late. While the album would have had the perfect home in the early '00s wave of Elephant’s and Pawn Shoppe Heart’s, today Sweet Sour’s basic rock'n'roll and flirting-with-pop sound feels clichéd. 


Opener is the title track Sweet Sour, sounding as though...

All Of Me sounds like it should be interesting. Avey Tare-esque vocals dance riotously over mischievous Chromatic-like synths which culminates into a chaotic frenzy of dejected sounds. But, for whatever reason, it falls short. It's not bland by any stretch of the imagination, but it's far from interesting. Does that make sense? No, probably not. Either...

It's been quite a while since Xavier Rudd has released a solo album. His last release was 2010's Koonyum Sun, credited to Xavier Rudd and Izintaba, and before that his most recent solo record is 2008's Dark Shades Of Blue. Rudd recently returned to the studio to record a new batch of songs and an interesting theme to knit them together, the first taste of which is Follow The Sun, a...

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...

Define your genre in five words or less:
Prairie stomp.


So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you... what do they say?
"Wow!  Pieta Brown really has her own sound!"


How long have you been gigging and writing?
I've been gigging for ten years...writing in my notebook and making up...

Remember when the queen visited Melbourne and hopped on a tram? It was pretty dull, eh? Perhaps she should have taken a leaf out of Ben Kweller's book and brought a six-string with her. Because that's exactly what the American songwriter will be doing this afternoon!


After crushing it at The Hi-Fi last night, Ben will be sticking around town to perform what will most...
