Donning an Elvis t-shirt and strutting the stage with her trademark messy locks and a charmingly unrestrained gob, Hynde and her band of four took to the petite Omeara stage at a little after 9pm and were instantly met by the crowds roaring approval. The night was one to celebrate the bands brand new, and...

A resurgence in nostalgic tours from acts of the eighties and nineties has had a firm hold on the international stage for the last few years, with many of the biggest acts of the respective decades coming out of hiding and performing hits from their heyday to fans who have long but given up on...

Most artists who have been around for a while necessarily have a few conflicting styles in their discography. In spite of having only actually released three albums, it feels like Ladyhawke has been around for a long time. The long gap between 2012’s Anxiety, and this year’s Wild Things, along with a fairly dramatic stylistic...

The translation of a strong song collection to a live context is evidently a very difficult process. Many artists struggle to present their songs in the best context, and many tracks suffer without their complete production, or with imperfect vocal performances. Seeing Ngaiire’s live show makes it apparent just how much the order and structure...

Sometimes, it doesn’t become apparent how large of a role studio production plays in music until one sees a band live. In the case of Winterbourne, their two EPs (All But The Sun and Pendulum) sound like entirely different bands, and live they sound like another band again. Luckily for Winterbourne though, the live version...

800 people. 4 bands. 1 room. The Factory Theatre, in Sydney’s Marrickville, is a fairly intimate venue whose beauty lies in being able to cram a sea of people into one room and still manage to magnify everything – good and bad.

Sometimes when reviewing gigs that aren’t particularly great, you’re left not knowing what to say. It can be incredibly difficult to find the words to summarise a musician’s work that you can’t relate to or simply have no interest in, and to subjectively break down their art on a public platform. Some things just can’t...

Danny Brown’s latest stint in Australia has been anything but average with the Detroit rapper not only making headlines for his killer performances at regional festival Groovin’ The Moo but also gearing up a wave of negative press when he refused to credit a Melbourne photographer’s work on Instagram. All controversy aside, the man is...

Jamie Lawson took to the stage of Sydney’s Metro Theatre exactly the way you would expect him to: with humility, grace and that beloved British charm. Possibly a reflection of his signature relaxed genre, the singer-songwriter appeared almost out of nowhere to a relatively low build up between his set and that of support act...
