Live Review: Chet Faker, June 27 @ The Enmore

Chet Faker aka Nick Murphy is astoundingly talented. His voice is effortlessly strong, perfectly tuned, and without a single melodic fault. He also has a talent for writing soulful, sensual grooves that meld R’n’B and electronic, produced and live instruments with fluidity and maturity far beyond his years. In short, I hate him. It’s so […]

Unfortunately, the more I’ve become more interested in music, the more I’ve become disillusioned by the NME’s tendency to blatantly favour bands it wants to be the […]

Interview: Fractures

When it comes to making a name for yourself, Fractures has gone about it in a pretty interesting fashion. Internet success, and a sold out debut gig seemed incredibly promising for the Melbourne producer, when it all came crashing down due to an unfortunate accident resulting in a fractured (yes, really) neck, and six months […]

Album Review: Dune Rats ‘Dune Rats’

Brisbane’s Dune Rats make the frustrations of living in a city that has no beach, not only relatable, but a little more bearable.
