ALBUM REVIEW: TY SEGALL
You know those bracelets people wear that ask ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ I think I’m gonna get one that asks ‘What Would Ty Do?’ Because there are certain people you just have to trust in life, and he seems like one of them.
FYF FESTIVAL 2014

LIVE REVIEW: DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979
When I heard DFA 1979 broke up in 2006, I was so bummed. But at least we got that one album, I thought. By 2014, I’d long retired the hope of ever seeing them live again. And then last thursday happened. I saw them live at The Troubadour in Los Angeles.
I saw most of 20,000 Days On Earth
This movie is fucking brilliant, but before I start gushing, let me tell the story of how I came to see it before its release. It’s no secret that I’m a big Bad Seeds fan, so when I heard there was Nick Cave documentary coming out I got really excited. I hunted down the PR…
BETTING ON HORSES WITH FOALS
We cornered English band Foals and made them talk about lingers, pick up lines, presents and their desire of Australian Women. It may be down to convict bad girl blood, lifestyle, or something harder to define.

FROTHING OVER FROTH
We just came up with the name as like this joke from this Australian term ‘Froth;’ which like we found out came from the term ‘Frothing at the gash,’ which is like a sexual reference.”

Why do I keep using Dan Svizeny’s name? Because you are going to be saying it a lot after you listen to this album, which is streaming here on MC exclusively until it’s release.
Everybody In: Episode 5 // La Femme
Episode 5 of our music series, Everybody In, features french rock gods La Femme. Presented by D’Blanc and directed by Edgar Obrand, watch as we follow them to a show, then to the after party, all whilst narrating the entire episode in a sultry french tongue. Merveilleux.
CHRISTOPHER OWENS IN THE CEMETERY
It wasn’t until after the show, (and after a few beers) sitting in my younger brothers Honda Civic about to take my third hit from his ‘travel pipe’, that I decided I want Christopher Owens to play my funeral.
Christmas shopping with Interpol
Interpol are one of the best bands, ever. We sat down with their drummer, Sam Fogarino, to talk band gift giving, would you rather’s, and bringing your house keys on tour with you.
IN THE BATH WITH SKY FERREIRA
I remember I got Tweets once being like, “I’m going to roll today!” And this girl had braces and I’m just like, do not come to my show. It’s just too much. You’re a liability. Go home.
FUTURE ISLANDS CAN’T FAIL
We sat down with Future Islands at Splendour in the Grass and dug beneath the surface to find out what failure means to them, and who they’d bring back from the dead.
The Growlers’ Beach Goth 3 ANNOUNCEMENT
Who loves The Growlers? We do. Who else loves The Growlers? Everybody else. That’s why today’s announcement is so good: Beach Goth 3 Lineup is here. And it is really, really good.
