Define your genre in five words or less:

Electro soul.

 

What makes you happiest about what you’re doing?

Money, clearly. And the cars and the babes. But the next best thing is captivating an audience. Occasionally I experience a blissful moment when the room goes quiet, and I am able to lock eyes with individual people, and I see that they are listening. It’s like...

It’s been a massive year for the mysterious and enigmatic artist that is Chet Faker. Making waves in the blogosphere, with his cover of Blackstreets No Diggity shooting to number one on MP3 blog aggregator Hype Machine, he’s since been teasing fans with a series of downloadable tracks.

It seems like renowned country troubadour Justin Townes Earle cannot get enough of Australia, and the adoration is more than a little bit reciprocated. Last in the country for a boot-worthy (that’s a good thing, for the uninitiated) Golden Plains performance, Justin returns with Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now – his refreshingly soulful new LP. Before touching...

The hyperbolic notion of the 'miraculous', the 'remarkable' or the plain 'unbelievable' rise to prominence of an artist within the contemporary music industry is a more clichéd and often fallacious concept than the fable of penning an album in an isolated woodland cabin. This ideology, however, is perhaps the only way to describe the astonishingly uplifting yet undeniably...

House and disco stalwart Graeme Clark, the man behind The Revenge, began his love affair with the music scene as a young teenager, learning how to make a skewed, inventive blend of electronic beats with a few of Dad's old drum machines and a sampler.

One of the great things in life is that when one door closes, another always opens. Zombie Ghost Train fans listen up. Despite the heartache when the Aussie psychobilly trio parted ways, it paved the way for something bigger, and possibly better. Enter Captain Reckless and the Lost Souls. The new outfit retains Zombie originals, Reckless [guitar, vocals], and Azzie T [drums], and gains the...

Hullo Alexis. What's your role here, then?


Lead singer/songwriter/guitarist.

 

Splendid. And what do you sound like?


Traces of Joni Mitchell, Ani Di Franco, Tracy Chapman… but there's personal gypsy-folk/ alternative flavour that comes from creating songs as kid based on Michael Jackson, Mum's Ella jazz records, my brother's rap and...

Indie pop that verges on adult contemporary, from a Sydney trio fronted by Simone Macarounas. Bandit reaches for a steady alt-country murmur, a kind of slow-swelling delicacy, but the song plods in an uninspired, all too bland fashion. There’s nothing wrong with it, it just doesn’t shake the soul.
