“YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND SHIT!” Well hi there Full Bush, how have you been? Busy, by the sounds of things; the opening 15 seconds of the lead single from the Philadelphia quartet’s first collection of new material in going on three-and-a-half years provides the sort of catharsis they (and no doubt their listeners) have been looking …

CHRIS PORPORA, the artist whose twin album releases from earlier this year, Time Waits For No One and Days Go By, are the gentlest, brittlest sucker punches to the heart and so should be in your turntables if not your Christmas list, isn’t done with dirty old 2021 yet; he’s looking to round off a …

Pressing gently on the brakes after the fizzy pop of earlier single ‘Pretty Good For My Mind‘, ‘Lonely’ has a slower paced trot and a faint touch of americana in its yearning …

We are very honoured to premiere the first video off the surprise new album ‘Intimate Hinterland’ to be announced tomorrow by the Sydney indie supergroup The Aerial Maps and set for release on Friday. The members of The Aerial Maps reads like a who’s who of the Sydney indie scene. Originally formed with the late …

Metal titans Sepultura have postponed their EU / UK tour alongside Sacred Reich and Crowbar until 2022. It would have been the first chance fans have had since the lockdown to see the Brazilian thrashers since the release of 2020’s lauded Quadra album. The band, now settled into their current line up of Andreas Kisser (guitars, …

THERE’S to be no rest for the wickedly, insistently, incisively funky: A Certain Ratio, with the deservedly acclaimed ACR: Loco (our review, here) and a slew of excellent postscriptual EPs under their belts this past year, paying tribute to Denise Johnson, Andrew Weatherall and just generally deep and insistent, exploratory funk listening – and a …

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have made themselves known in their vivid, exuberant careers as one of Perth’s finest exports and most inventive bands. With just enough breathing space after their fourth album ‘SHYGA! The Sunlight Mount’, they have returned with their new single ‘Lava Lamp Pisco’, a euphoric explosion of fuzz-laden guitars and intoxicating polyphony that …
