Masketta Fall – Golden (Album Review)

Masketta Fall – Golden (Album Review)

Sometimes you’re lucky enough to stumble across a band that just has something about them that separates them from the rest, the fact that they are Melbourne born and bred is just a pure bonus – Masketta Fall are that band. They have come full circle after being signed to a label, working for the label, getting frustrated by and leaving the label; and are […]

Noah Cyrus featuring Labrinth – Make Me (Cry) (Single Review)

Noah Cyrus featuring Labrinth – Make Me (Cry) (Single Review)

Noah Cyrus is following in her family’s musical footsteps with the release of her debut single Make Me (Cry) featuring Labrinth.   .   . Noah is the little sister of pop star and social media royalty, Miley Cyrus. You may remember a baby-faced Noah making the occasional (and adorable) appearance on Hannah Montana. Well, our “Miley Miniature” is now 16 and donning a slightly […]

Meresha – Together (Single Review)

Meresha – Together (Single Review)

Young, indie singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Meresha is carving her own path in the music industry as she creates eclectic digital pop with a soulful throwback voice. Think of a young Annie Lennox or Katy Perry and a sonic vision that draws comparisons with Bjork or Lorde. .   The latest single Together was released in late 2016. It follows on from the early 2016 […]

Silence The Sun – Faceless (Single Review)

Silence The Sun – Faceless (Single Review)

Silence The Sun: a powerful name for an equally powerful independent progressive rock band from Brisbane and they are not afraid to push the boundaries. The talented foursome – Maf (vocals/guitar), Ben (guitar), Josh (bass/vocals) and Luke (drums/vocals) – have spent the past few years honing their amazing live show and recording 11 songs for their blistering debut album (Sailing Empty Streets – due for […]

Big Words – The Answer (Single Review)

Big Words – The Answer (Single Review)

Do not worry if you haven’t heard of Big Words because they are making such a big noise with the debut single, The Answer, that you soon will. The band has been making a name for themselves these past five years without releasing any music. . . The Melbourne quartet – William Scullin (vocals/guitar/keys), Kieran Lee (vocals/keys/guitar), Cam Dusting (bass/guitar/vocals) and Lawrence Rence (drums/percussion) – are […]

Kim Wilde + Howard Jones @ The Astor Theatre 15/11/16 (Live Review)

Kim Wilde + Howard Jones @ The Astor Theatre 15/11/16 (Live Review)

Lately, the entire world seems to have gone completely mad for all things retro as many of our favourites from the 80’s and 90’s have either toured, announced tours or currently touring. Sunday night was no different as people were lining up at The Astor to catch two acts from their childhood – Kim Wilde and Howard Jones.   Jones was up first and started […]

Hemina – Venus (Album Review)

Hemina – Venus (Album Review)

  Hemina is a relatively new name to me. I heard them for the first time as they opened up for Apocalyptica in September. I really enjoyed their set back then and I put my hand up to review Venus to get properly acquainted with the Sydney proggers. Being a massive fan of both Voyager and Caligula’s Horse, I expected this to be right up […]

Dropkick Murphys –  Blood (Single Review)

Dropkick Murphys – Blood (Single Review)

Dropkick Murphys do what they do and they do it pretty much perfectly every time. . . If anthemic, fist raising Irish-folk infused punk music isn’t your thing then you can probably stop reading. On the other hand if Fields of Athenry, Kiss me I’m Shitfaced, Tessie and For Boston made you want to cry, break something and hug your best friend then you’ll be equally satisfied by this latest […]

Holy Serpent- Temples (EP Review)

Holy Serpent- Temples (EP Review)

Holy Serpent are a stoner-rock outfit from Melbourne with their roots heavily planted in the 70s, and maybe the 90s revival of the 70s sound. Their latest release, Temples, reeks of Sabotage era Sabbath. . . The band established its particular version of  heavy, trance-like psychedelica on its eponymous debut and this five-track release builds upon, rather than replicates, that work. It is the double guitars really […]
