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. On Friday night it was home to UK rock band Basement, accompanied by...

Let’s be honest, DJs often get a bad rap for having great singles but incredibly boring stage shows. Electric laser shows are too often used to distract from the fact the DJ is doing relatively nothing on stage, aside from hiding behind their Macbook Pro for 45 minutes and pressing a button every now and...

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...

Nothing worthwhile doing comes without challenges: a sentiment that rings true for US indie rockers Modern Baseball. The past five years have seen the band steadily grow from a bunch of musical misfits in Philadelphia to the internationally known emo outfit they are today, but it hasn’t been easy. Aside from the often draining nature...

“When I think of fates worse than death, all I can think of is something you said,” Dallas Green wistfully sang. City and Colour has never been a project based off false identities and manufactured emotions. Instead, Green – the mastermind behind it all – weaves stories of heartache, longing and lust, accompanied with frank...

It can be difficult to properly gauge the feel of an album from the tracks offered up in a preview. However, if the style Ladyhawke’s Pip Brown has put forward for Wild Things, her 3rd full length album is to be believed, she has gone full-pop. Whilst her previous records featured impeccably catchy choruses, and...

“I don’t want to be accused of having a meltdown”, confessed the Queen of Pop last night as she delivered a stellar show for her fans in Sydney’s packed-to-the-rafters Allphones Arena, before declaring to the many haters in the Australian media: “God forbid a mother should miss her son”, referencing her current custody battles with...
