Written over their many overseas jaunts, Shy Glow seamlessly flows from […]

Tempting as it has been to engage in an Abbott and Costello “Who’s On First” esque argument and reply with “No, it’s NO,” I haven’t. After all, the confusion is understandable. Like The National, the LA […]

If you aren’t familiar with Night Beats, it’s time that all changed: think psychedelic-infused garage rock that’s full of soulful guitars, bluesy melodies and foot-stomping rhythms. Since forming in 2009, Night Beats have been endlessly touring, sharing stages with […]

Rave of Thrones ft. DJ HODOR is a thing, and it’s happening in Australia

Game of Thrones is over for the year. I’m still sad about this, crying every Monday night about the lack of blood, gore, dragons and nudity on my TV screen. You might be feeling the same way. We’ve got a long year to go until Season 5 comes out, folks. Never fear, though: we’ve got […]

Gang of Youths have a new video and tour dates!

With Robert Thornton Sydney (and now, Nashville) rockers Gang of Youths have seriously exploded onto the scene since forming just last year. For five guys from Sydney who reportedly met at “Jesus camp” while growing up, producing rich, opulent alt-rock seems like it would present a bit of a challenge. However, for the band’s front […]

Live Review: Violent Soho, July 12th @ Manning Bar

Waking up with bruises on your abdomen isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The red and purple splotches strangely resembled the tie died merch I’d been eyeing off the night before. Pressed up against the metal rail of Manning Bar, the air slowly squeezing out of my lungs, I witnessed one of Australia’s most talented bands […]
