    Death Valley Girls – I Am A Wave

    Los Angeles quartet Death Valley Girls don’t fuck around. They’ve already released a fantastic full-length album this year (probably the best of their career), but apparently that’s not enough. The group have also just announced their debut tour of Australia—the greatest country on earth goddammit!—and dropped another spectacularly hypnotic single, ‘I Am A Wave’.  If […]

    Skeleten – Under Utopia

    You likely already recognised Russell Fitzgibbon as the bassist for Babitha or as the taller half of legendary Sydney dance duo Fishing. Since the 2020 lockdowns, however, you’ve probably recognised him as Skeleten. Now, after a lengthy run of singles, we’ve finally been treated to Skeleten’s debut full-length, ‘Under Utopia’. Upon announcing the record, Fitzgibbon […]

    Flyying Colours – You Never Know

    So much music was written and recorded during the pandemic, it seems like a moot point to bring it up. In the case of Flyying Colours’ third full-length record, however, it seems important. This is an album marked by a sense of isolation and introspection; the capturing of a specific moment in time. ‘You Never […]

    The Eclectic Sounds of Liberty Hall House Party II

    Liberty Hall House Party is back, baby. In May, we hosted the first one of these things and it was completely out of control (if you were there, you know). We’ve been champing at the bit ever since to go again.  On Friday, August 11th, you can catch live sets from Mildlife, Lazywax, First Beige, […]

    Fig (ft. Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boy) – I Heard It In My Dream

    When I was younger, songs played in my dreams every night for almost a whole year. Research told me that the lyrics to these songs may be trying to uncover some buried feeling or subconscious message. I was told that only I would understand the meaning of these lyrics.  All these years later, I still […]

    Noah Dillon: Kill The Dove

    Each of Noah Dillon’s albums and EPs seem to capture a specific moment in his life. It’s understandable, then, that his debut album ‘Kill The Dove’ is a snapshot of life in lockdown, but perhaps more importantly, life in love. The discourse between these two themes—love and isolation—I’d say is the guiding force of ‘Kill […]

    Crocodylus : YOU / Unnecessary Pressure

    I imagine COVID lockdowns really fucked with Crocodylus. For years, the band have toured non-stop around the country, putting on notoriously high-energy live shows, simultaneously releasing great EP after great EP. What does a band like that do after being told they’re not allowed to play shows or travel interstate? What comes of all that […]

    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 […]

    Dominic Breen: Interview

    Dominic Breen has long been one of our favourite Australian songwriters. 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 […]

    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 […]
