Anunjadeep favourite and Canberra success story Jaytech is a well-established name both here and abroad. 

 

Classically trained as a pianist and a perfectionist when it comes to programming, his emotionally-laden take on deep melodies and sunny electronic grooves are a guaranteed hit, whether in the world's biggest stadiums or on your back-to-mine 6AM soundtrack. Earning himself...

The flash in the pan, triple j garage bands tend to produce a barely legal crowd, literally bouncing with enthusiasm. Their squealing and conversations purely made up of acronyms liable to wear the well-travelled gig goer down. Thankfully Black Lips enduring career has seen them amass a cult following that boasts people of varying age groups, sub cultures and musical tastes.

This clattering fusion of west coast sunshine and jangling garage rock has got me smiling from ear to ear. The debut single from Howler, taken from their forthcoming debut album, is melodic, agitated indie rock somewhere between The Drums and Black Lips. A mangy, effortless backyard party tune to get you through summer.

In many ways, the Ups and Downs story - recounted dryly in drummer Darren Atkinson's liner notes to the newOut of the Darkness compilation - is no different to thousands of other independent bands: early popular success, a whiff of overseas interest, injection of label funds, a change in artistic direction, dilution of original fanbase, popular decline and eventual break-up.

I entertained the thought of posing with my colleagues in front of the sponsor banner for the horde of photographers while walking down the red carpet into the labyrinthine halls of Revolt. Running the hypothesis through my head, I surmised that each flash of a camera bulb would trigger an existential crisis more harrowing than the last. After the shooting would subside, I'd be asked, "So, who...

If you swap over the F and the C [in my name] I'm sure you'll get a nice surprise, had you not already worked it out." Yes, the man known professionally as FuntCase has a dirty mind. Good thing for us that vulgarity is translated within his ground shaking music. In the grand tradition of such mysterious figures as Jason Voorhees, this crazy Funt sports a rather creepy mask whenever he's in the...

In what's got to be a melancholic announcement for anybody who's donned a mask and attended an installment of the immensely popular Boho Ball over the years, the details on the last-ever Bohemian Masquerade Ball have been announced.

 

 

The Boho Ball started in a derelict church hall way back in 2007. Its primary purpose was, and still is, to throw a royal party that...

Late Night Tales conjures up something very David Lynch-esque, as though all the songs were being performed from behind the red curtain and you're waiting for a deep, dark secret to be divulged. Here it is: none of the tracks included on this CD embrace any type of electronica, if that's what you were expecting from Mr
