Newcastle’s music, and broader artistic, community was dealt a huge blow this May when Morrow Park Bowling Club was destroyed in a blaze. The venue acted as a cultural hub for many Newcastle musicians, as well as providing a northern conduit for visiting Melbourne acts. Following on from a Newcastle-based benefit, the Corner will play host to Mozfest: Blaze Of Glory II – a star-studded mini-...

Pardon the clichéd metaphor, but listening to Daughter live is like plunging into a cold shower on a disgustingly hot day. Refreshing, yet simultaneously confronting. It's this seemingly contradictory duality that makes it so difficult to pigeonhole them. Vocalist, guitarist and founder of the London outfit, Elena Tonra has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. Incredibly soothing...

Equal parts cabaret, pantomime, comedy, and free-for-all musical mayhem, legendary indie songstress Clare Bowditch’s annual Winter Secrets tours have become something of an Australian institution. Ever since she first began this most irreverent and curious series of interactive concerts back in 2009, Bowditch has made it her mission to close the gap between performer and audience.

Instrumental act Forest of Eyes bellowed, sans amplification, that we were witnessing their first ever show. The young group clearly relished the opportunity to play to a sizeable crowd upon debut, their childlike glee near-palpable. Their rambunctious, cymbal-crashing prog-rock tore through the venue, comparisons to Cream and Led Zeppelin inevitably sprouting. It wouldn't be a stretch to...

About a minute into the set, it’s clear that Kingswood need a bigger stage. If not to better reflect their music, then definitely so we can fully appreciate the mass of guitarist Alex Laska’s long, curly mane. It’s obvious that they’ve perfected the art of live performance since playing nearly a hundred gigs last year. Impressive harmonies, witty onstage banter, face melting guitar solos. ...

In Blood Memory, the long-awaited third album from local legend Jen Cloher, has finally seen the light of day and let me tell you, it’s worth the wait. Rollicking, heartfelt, and raw, this work is a corker, brimming with light, atmosphere, and warmth. It is certainly not a warm day when I meet up with Ms Cloher at a Thornbury café to chat about this album and the stories that led up to it. In...
