If we are going to be honest with ourselves here, Yeah Yeah Yeahs were always a singles band. How many of you can honestly say that you still listen to Fever To Tell start to finish? How many of you usually just skip to Maps before going to Show Your Bones to play Gold Lion? Thought so.


With this in mind, the band recruited demigod James Murphy to help produce their forth LP,...

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner has worked some serious magic with the Grinderman two track Bellringer Blues – part of a Grinderman remix album due out in late March. Zinner’s interpretation strips the warped and stuttering original down, creating a near-acoustic, minimalist render with a slight electro edge.

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

The band's Private Life and I'm the bassist.

Love the freedom and how in the...

It's focus that set HTRK apart. Slow paced and with an overall icy atmosphere of lust and desperation, new album Work (work, work), their follow up to their debut LP Marry Me Tonight, displays a clarity of vision that is coming to define their practice. The entire album rooted in the theme of desires, realised or denied, the now two piece have delivered a work that walks their carefully drawn...

Constant touring here and abroad and an enduring...

No matter the filmic talent behind them, biographical documentaries are largely defined as intriguing or banal by the character they explore. Autoluminescent, directed by Richard Lowenstein and Lynn-Maree Milburn, documents the life of Australian guitar legend Rowland S. Howard, who passed away in 2009. Howard was the guitarist of iconic bands such as post-punks The Boys Next Door and The...

Diplo is one dude mired in controversy. Go on, I dare you: put “Diplo hates” into Google and you’ll find the guy reppin’ a serious hate-on for everybody from Lady Gaga and infamously, his ex-girlfriend and collaborator M.I.A. to poor music journalists like me. More than happy to run his mouth and tell it exactly like it is, Diplo (whose family and friends know him as Thomas Wesley Pentz) sure...
