    Shannon & The Clams: Interview

    Listening to Shannon & The Clams feels a lot like flipping through a crate of old 45s. The Oakland band mix doo-wop, garage, surf, psych and a whole lot of other things I don’t have the time to list, creating a sound that’s at once nostalgic and completely refreshing. Before they hit Mary’s Underground later […]

Standing alongside artists like Caitlin Harnett and Maple Glider, he features brightly in the — his words now — “constellation of Australian songwriters”. Before he shares the stage with these artists tomorrow night (July 7th) at Mary’s Underground for the first instalment of our […]

    Deepa: Interview

    If you were to spend any given night in Sydney searching for the city’s hottest, most heaving dancefloor, chances are you’d stumble across Deepa. The DJ and radio presenter always has something on the go, and no matter what project she’s working on, you can guarantee it’s going to be great. Shortly before International Women’s […]

    Georgia Hill chats artistic practise and International Women’s Day

    Most comfortable moving between her studio, a boom lift and the departure lounge, Georgia Hill is an Australian artist and muralist whose works have spanned galleries, inner-city walls, and 400 ft abandoned buildings across the world. Pushing the boundaries of many artistic fields, Georgia is undefinable; limitless and expansive. She’s an artist of multi-expressions with […]

    Green Screen : Love Prevails

    Zoe Catterall and Hewett Cook really nailed it when they settled on Green Screen as a band name. With their glitchy electro-pop sound, the group’s music will forever conjure images of cheap green screen graphics (example: the video for their debut single, I Am Boring). And as everyone knows, cheap green screen graphics rule. For […]

But now we’re out of lockdown! In fact, this Friday will mark the long-awaited return of dancefloors. So, to […]

    Sweetie: Boundary Queen

    The days are getting hotter, the nights a little balmier. Picnic season is upon us, and Sweetie have finally released their long-awaited debut single, ‘Boundary Queen’. Now, it’s likely coincidental that all these events (the changing of seasons, the relaxing of restrictions, the recorded debut of Sweetie) have so perfectly coincided with one another. But […]

    Third Eye Stimuli Records: Lockdown Playlist

    There ain’t no rest for Third Eye Stimuli Records. It seems like every couple of weeks the Sydney/Wollongong record label releases something new, forever expanding their discography of Aussie psych/garage gems. And it’s all consistently great. From the hip-shaking rock ‘n’ roll of Rosa Maria to the pummeling shoegaze of PEEL, each Third Eye Stimuli […]

    Angeles: Plastic

    Listening to Angeles is like admiring a painting through frosted glass. There’s an image, but the image is blurred. There’s colour and movement and joy and pain, but these things are obscured by waves of noise. That’s not to say these feelings don’t land; they do. Instead of hitting you in the obvious ways, however, […]

    We caught up with 3 Sydney photographers stuck in lockdown

    If you talk to any musician with half a brain, they’ll tell you that photographers are the true unsung heroes of the scene. Here’s a group of people who invest large chunks of cash into new equipment, lug that equipment around to shows, and document the evolution of a community we’re so lucky to be […]

    The Buoys : Lie To Me Again

    The Buoys don’t fuck around. It feels like just yesterday the band were releasing their ‘All This Talking Gets Us Nowhere’ EP, and now they’re back with yet another belting single, ‘Lie To Me Again’. And here’s the kicker; not only are they establishing themselves as one of Sydney’s most prolific bands, they’re also evolving […]

    King Stingray : Milkumana

    With live music still a while off, we thought it timely to start sharing some the tracks that have helped brighten our lives in lockdown. What better way to kick things off than with King Stingray’s belter of a new single, ‘Milkumana’?
