When all else seems dark and gloomy now that Dark Mofo has finished in Hobart and all some of us are are left with are the cold clammy hands of COVID grasping at our throats, the news of a remastered reissue of the debut album from one of the best bands in the world, Underground …

There have been rumours circulating all year, but it’s official now: a collaboration between two giants of the Australian indie scene – Steve Kilbey from The Church and Glenn Bennie from the Underground Lovers has resulted in a new album, ‘Sakura Flower’ under the name of Bennie’s side project GB3. ‘Sakura Flower’ has added input …

Not that long after releasing a superb collection of remixes spanning their career (reviewed by me here), Melbournes Underground Lovers have sprung another surprise album on the public entitled ‘Others’. This album has collected seventeen tracks of what are labelled B sides from singles, EPs and giveaways. Given the standard of output by this band, …

Spanning their entire thirty career, the new collection of remixes from the legendary Underground Lovers is utterly sublime. It goes without saying that the flesh of a remix is only as good as the bones it is built on, and with the Underground Lovers you are assured that the foundations are phenominal. Many of the …

The inimitable Underground Lovers have released an absolutely delightful video for the gorgeous track ‘Feels Like Yesterday’ opening their last album ‘A Left Turn’ (my joint favourite album of 2019).

Indeed, rather appropriately, lots of love pouring all over the place; in the venue, on stage, even after the gig when members …

Melbourne’s legendary Underground Lovers have released a new single, ‘Seven Day Weekend’ as well as announcing the release of their tenth album ‘A Left Turn’ on 11 October 2019 along with a tour of Australia. I’m unashamedly a massive fan of this criminally underrated band and it feels like Christmas. ‘Seven Day Weekend’ is a …

There can be no greater sense of excitement and anticipation than news of a new release from one of Australia’s best bands, the criminally underrated Underground Lovers from Melbourne. And so it goes a surprise new single has just been released – ‘Passer-by’ – as well as confirmation of the release of their 10th album, …

I don’t know whether Melbourne is becoming the shoegaze/dream pop capital of the Southern Hemisphere, but the release last month of Lowtide‘s sophomore album, ‘Southern Mind’ would be compelling evidence. Some of the best music is being produced in the southern capital and Lowtide are leading the pack. ‘Southern Mind’ is a stellar collection of …
