I don’t usually do single reviews, but occasionally a song stands out and makes me take notice, like really take notice and listen. This band ‘Larsen’ from Adelaide did that. Continue reading Larsen – Yours Sincerely (single) 2020
Combining twinkly mid-west indie styling’s with some bridging math-rock idea’s and dreamy ambient scores, this EP release from Adelaide group ‘Rosella’ is going to land a hit with fans of that sound.
Continue reading Rosella – EP (2019)
Hype. While I normally feature harder music (as is my preference) sometimes a curve ball comes along that just floors me as a listener and it doesn’t matter what ‘genre’ tag fits…the only thing I can say is this one of the best albums of 2019. Easily. Continue reading Bonniesongs – Energetic Mind (Art as Catharsis) 2019
This is what a lot of passion and not a lot of concern sounds like. Short, sharp songs that have been criminally under-produced (on purpose), potent and catchy. No make that ridiculously potent and incredibly catchy. I am completely enamoured with this album right now. Continue reading Press Club – Late Teens (2018)
Debut full length from indie rock outfit that owes a lot to the Cure and Balance and Composure..but seriously..how could that ever be a bad thing? Continue reading Love Games – Nothing Ever Moves You (2017)
Gotta love some dream-pop when it’s done well. Continue reading Love Games – Raincoat (single) 2017

A fully realised body of work that is so tastefully executed that you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re some old school shoegaze post-punk group you’re older sibling used to listen to in the 90’s. Sounds too good to be true, and yet..here I am telling you..this is incredible. Continue reading Spilt Cities – Life, On Hold (2017)
The first new music from the RMC camp since last years ‘I Just Have a Lot of Feelings’ ep, and this tune features much more of a rock-band vibe than the previously established clean & jangly guitars involved with Rachels indie-pop approach in earlier songs. Perhaps this is the natural flow on effect of gigging with a full-band lineup and building up a national profile as an artist. Whatever the case, im a fan. Continue reading Rachel Maria Cox – Emotionally Untidy (single) 2017
Sydney based emo/alternative rock band Recovery Room have recently released their first musical offering with their new EP ‘A Lesson In Letting Go’ and you can check out our review of their new EP here.
I (virtually) sat down with Dylan and Christian in a cute Facebook group chat the other day and asked them a few questions about their new project and how it all came together.
