Utopia, the metal group centred around guitarist John Bailey and Corrupt Moral Altar vocalist Chris Reese have announced UK tour dates for February 2022 following the release of their debut album ’Stalker’ last month on APF Records. John comments, “One of the things about music like this is that it’s very easy to let it …

The September 24, 1991 release of Nirvana’s Nevermind touched off a seismic shift in global youth culture. Rising to #1 worldwide over the next few months, its impact would elevate Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl from a promising Pacific Northwest cult band to one of the most successful and influential artists of all time.  Nevermind returned …

If you’re a fan of Chris Pierce and the Los Angeles-based artist’s various musical outlets – we certainly are – then we’ve got a treat for you today. Two of them, actually.

They probably weren’t planning on putting together a follow-up so soon, but seizing upon the lone upside of a pandemic putting the last year on ice sounds …

‘The Last Exit’ from UK duo Still Corners, released earlier this year (reviewed by me here), was a magnificent and evocative collection of glittering and sparkling songs filled with magic and mystery. Still Corners are back with a new single – ‘Heavy Days’ – and an announcement of a comprehensive tour of the EU and …

Brisbane band Requin burned brightly but tragically briefly, leaving behind an impressive body of work (see our review of the single ‘Rules That Won’t Be Broken’ last year). All is not lost however – Fionn Richards from the band has formed the project Aren’t, and we are honoured to provide an exclusive listen to the …

Subversions of popular songwriting tropes, if done well, can really speak to an artist’s strengths. In the case of Brooklynite new wave bunch My Son the Doctor, their new song skewers a classic pop-punk fallback: the mutually toxic relationship. Its subject? Er… we’ll let the band explain that one. “We genuinely love pop-punk and thought, …

The vivid, sparkling and unbound imagination of Sara Nelson, working under the name Skybelly, creates a whole new universe in her forthcoming album ‘A Space Tramp Odyssey’, due out on 23 September 2021.
