A preview of the second album by Ned Collette & Wirewalker, called 2. The single is a heady mix of squirreling electric guitar played in an acoustic Spanish style, deadpan vocal delivery and muted drums; a collection of sounds all struggling mightily to seem blasé, the energy dampened by Ned’s now-customary hipster gothic style. I dunno. It’s incredibly interesting but also kind...

Define your genre in five words or less: 

Missy Higgins meets The Waifs.


So, someone is walking past as you are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you... what do they say?
"Man, that chick can play the guitar!"


Do you have any record releases to date? What are they? Where can I get them?
My 2009 studio album...

It's hard to believe, but Aussie rock act The Superjesus parted ways almost ten years ago. The various members have scattered to the four winds, and gone on to many different projects. Some high profile, some not so much. Lead singer Sarah McLeod has been exceptionally busy in the intervening time, as she explained to us recently from a rehearsal studio in Sydney.

The first single from Angus Stone’s new solo album is yet another milky, seductive indie pop tune. Amidst a slow spatter of drums and rich strums of acoustic guitar, his voice creeps like honey, hypnotic and melancholy, like a latter day Elliot Smith.

In the ten years that The Beautiful Girls have been delivering their fun-loving mixture of roots, reggae and rock, they’ve played in all sorts of venues. But there’s been one type of venue they haven’t played – until now, that is. With the Melbourne Zoo launching its 150th Anniversary Celebrations with a series of concerts featuring some of Australia’s best performers, Mat McHugh, lead singer/...

Australia is well known for breeding kickarse guitarists. Angus Young, Tommy Emmanuel, Brett Garsed….Tim McMillan is up there with the best of them. This dude combines the melodicism of Jeff Buckley with the eclecticism of Frank Zappa, the harmonic creativity of Devin Townsend and the technique of your Stanley Jordans and Chris Brodericks. McMillan is about to release his latest album, Angel,...

Donavon Frankenreiter’s passion for music and surfing is undeniable. For much of the last decade he has travelled the world, playing music and surfing wherever and whenever he could; his love for both never wavering since he first discovered them as a child. Now he has packed his acoustic guitar and his surfboard and he’s getting ready to head down to Australia for a mammoth run of...

That isn’t the voice I expected. The gentle ripples of acoustic guitar that launch In My Pocket are overly familiar - the light, lilting gestures that usually precede a kittenish female folk singer. Not in this case though. The voice that breathes over these romantic guitar notes is rough and masculine, closer to Tom Waits than Julia Stone. It’s a pleasing kind of dissonance, softened...

The Maple Trail is the solo project of Sydney’s Aidan Roberts, whose lilting voice and sunny folk sounds play like a modern reworking of Cat Stevens or Simon and Garfunkel. With Beirut-style brass inflections, subtle interplay of acoustic guitars and clear, memorable images, The Dinosaur Hunters is the work of a very mature talent. The Maple Trail’s third album, Cable Mountain Warning...

Legendary sad man Will Oldham returns with his umpteenth album, Wolfrey Goes To Town, which is littered with spare, heartbreaking ballads just like this one. “As boys we fucked each other,” he begins, “As men, we lie and smile.” With the lightest rolling notes of acoustic guitar and high breathy support vocals from Angel Olsen, he ruminates on the pitched battles of long-term relationships,...
