Honest and Concise Opinions on Music.

Band of Horses – Why Are You OK? / Album Review

I have been so excited for this release since I heard about it a few months ago. About 4/5 years ago I would have cited these lads as one of my favourite bands.

The intro track is a slow and contemplative piece with interesting use of electronics and an old radio sample but Continue reading “Band of Horses – Why Are You OK? / Album Review”

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa – Kush Ups / Single Review

Oh come on. Changing push ups to kush ups. Another trap song talking about rappers smoking weed. How does this stuff continue to sell in such high volumes?

We know these guys smoke weed, it’s all they ever speak about. Continue reading “Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa – Kush Ups / Single Review”

Oyinda – Restless Minds / EP Review

The trend, it seems, for new electronic music is the lower the bass and the slower the beat, the better it is.

Admittedly it gives more room for musical expression and creates that grand and atmospheric sense everyone is aiming for. Continue reading “Oyinda – Restless Minds / EP Review”

MATHAS – Live Review

The self diagnosed ‘Mind Music’ of the Perth based rapper had the SOTA crowd nodding, laughing and questioning their very existence as he charged about the stage. A ridiculously tight bassist/drummer combo and a turntable DJ/Guitarist accompanied Mathas onstage. Continue reading “MATHAS – Live Review”

Mosquito Coast / Live Review

Yesterday was State of the Art (SOTA) in Perth consisting of bands such as Koi Child, Ta-Ku, Jebediah and San Cisco. Without doubt Mosquito Coast provided the audience with the tightest bass/drum lock of the entire day. Continue reading “Mosquito Coast / Live Review”

Paul Simon – Stranger to Stranger / Album Review

Last year I got to see Paul Simon perform live along side Sting (singer not wrestler) and I was astounded at his capability at the grand old age of 73!

This is an album mixed with classic Simon melodies, mesmerising Continue reading “Paul Simon – Stranger to Stranger / Album Review”

Chymes – Clouds / Single Review

This review is about Chymes. Not CHIMES, The Chymes, Chimes, Chimes (again) The Chimes or The Chimes (again). Just to be clear.

Clouds is a chilled ambient track that features unison vocals from the NSW electronica duo. The minimalist style with a soft and lulling vocal melody consumes the listener into a dreamy atmosphere that could easily Continue reading “Chymes – Clouds / Single Review”

Cats Eyes – Treasure House / Album Review

Cat’s Eyes are an alt-pop duo consisting of Faris Badwan (The Horrors) and Rachel Zeffira (Italian-Canadian Soprano).

Gothic influences from the early 80’s and the mix between the pretty and the ugly help create an album of intensity. In 2015 the duo composed the soundtrack to the motion picture ‘The Duke of Burgundy’. Their cinematic approach rubs off on this release. Think of it more like a soundtrack to life. A melancholy one. Continue reading “Cats Eyes – Treasure House / Album Review”

Frankie and the Witch Fingers – 6,000 Horns / Single Review

The first single from the garage psych band off their album High Roller, due out on 29th July.

Taking inspiration from bands such as July and Captain Beefheart the boys from Los Angeles are leading us into a 60’s Continue reading “Frankie and the Witch Fingers – 6,000 Horns / Single Review”
