Maple Glider – the moniker of Melbourne resident Tori Zietsch – has a voice and delivery that is like someone whispering softly in your ear: it’s close and warm and very personal. There is a delicious immediacy to her music – recalling that Danish concept of Hyyge – a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality …

Having experienced critical acclaim and moderate commercial success with their first album, ‘Speed Kills’, West London pub rockers Chubby and the Gang have announced details of its follow-up, along with a new single and a 40-date UK/Ireland tour. ‘The Mutt’s Nuts’ is released via Partisan on August 27th and, as with its predecessor, has been …

Melbournian Maple Glider ( the artist Tori Zietsch) has announced the release of her debut album ‘To Enjoy is The Only Thing’ out on 25 June 2021 through Partisan Records and has unveiled the single ‘Baby Tiger’ in anticipation. ‘Baby Tiger’ is fragile and beautiful: Glider’s voice a delicate whisper across a simple acoustic guitar …

The debut single “Free Your Mind” exhibits a myriad of Kuti markers but also …

Idles have released “Model Village”, the latest single from their 3rd LP Ultra Mondo, a commentary on life in a small town. The video, made of cardboard cutouts like something from South Park, features pig-like humans doing what we humans do, bashing each other, drinking, running around headless living the lives we’re supposed to live. …
