I had an ex boyfriend whose mum was a total bitch to me. We embarked upon watching David Lynch’s Twin Peaks series together, and I remember one day I was watching an episode upstairs in an open lounge room…
FROM THE MAG: ANTON CORBIJN
There was no escaping the Nick Cave Fever that engulfed Los Angeles last week. I caught his performance at The Ace Downtown, but to call it a performance is a short sell – it was truly an experience teetering on religious.
PLAYLIST: MC CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD TRIP
These are the songs from our recent cross-country trip. It’s about 30% Bad Seeds. If it were an honest playlist from our trip, it’d be 90% Bad Seeds, because that’s almost all we listened to.
NEW MUSIC: Wilder Zoby
Wilder Zoby just dropped his new single, ‘Day We Met.’ The video is directed By Andre Razo & Wyatt Troll. Once you watch said video, you’re really going to want to know more about Wilder, as well as the director, Andre.
PEOPLE: MATT CORREIA
Matt Correia is a man of many talents. Not only does he provide percussion to the Allah-Las, he also writes a weekly music blog called Found Sound, surfs, and takes beautiful photos.
WOULD YOU RATHER? W/ COOL GHOULS
San Francisco’s Cool Ghouls aren’t just good at making music, they’re also really good at answering would-you-rathers. Their self-titled LP is catchy as hell, and conveniently for you, available now on Empty Cellar Records.
No Spring Chicken Record Review: U2′s ‘ZOOROPA’
Before you say a word, anyone who hates this record is a poser. I’m not going to bang the drum for U2, 1994–2014 (which will piss off about eight people), and I’ll admit I’m extraordinarily stoned right now, but I can’t discredit this album.
Everybody In: Episode 4 // King Tuff
Welcome to Episode 4 of our music web series, Everybody In. Presented by D’Blanc and directed by Edgar Obrand, this episode features the charismatic singer/songwriter, King Tuff.
NEW MUSIC: DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979
Death From Above 1979 are back. Man am I happy to announce that. Words I always prayed to the Gods of 2004 I’d get to mutter again. Their new album The Physical World drops September 9.
The Acid: New album dropped
The Acid formed through a set of auspicious coincidences that brought together Australian raised but Berlin based artist Ry X, world renown English break producer Adam Freeland and Californian electronic producer turned university lecturer Steve Nalepa, to the same city, and later moved them into the same studio to deliver The Acid’s debut EP…
Throwback/Comeback: The Vines
My aunty went to her school dance with one of the guys from the vines. She showed me photos after and I was burnt up with envy. I asked her to go back to Kmart and get extra copies printed so I could take them to school and show everybody.
Dirty Fences Euro Tour!
Our good buddies, Dirty Fences, are doing a July tour of Europe. Are you from Europe? Do you like Rock n’ Roll? Do you like pancakes? Go see Dirty Fences. They’re amazing live, and they’re really nice dudes. 5. Prague, CZ- Mystic Cup 6. Erfurt, Germany- AJZ Cafe 7. Vienna, Austria- Rhiz 8. Tallin, Estonia-…
Introducing The Legendary Tigerman
While listening to Femina, I had this epiphany: What about an interview with The Legendary Tigerman? And yeah, it happened. We caught with him in the middle of his world tour for his album True, and asked the one man band some questions.
Marissa Nadler: Firecrackers
Don’t let the title fool you. If this was a track about firecrackers it’d be the saddest July 4 show I’ve ever seen. It’d be a case of water damaged smoke balls sizzling tears across America. Beautiful, sad, sorry, broken firecracker tears.
NEW MUSIC: COACHWHIPS
This week’s new music post is actually old music posing as new. It’s remastered. Classic term for cash-grabbing rehash. But, if Coachwhips didn’t do it, I’d never have heard it. And I’m really glad I did. Rehash rules! Castle Face Records have been dusting off the vaults and have unearthed another gem of a track,…
NEW MUSIC: The Fresh & Onlys
Sometimes in a shared work space, it’s difficult to find music that everyone can agree on. Someone wants hip hop at 9.15am, someone wants to relive the g(l)ory days of Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Fairytales after a heavy meal at lunch. There’s always at least one unhappy camper. So imagine my surprise and delight when I gave…
ZANE LOWE MEETS RICK RUBIN
As a nice follow up to the Mike D issue this amazing interview with Rick Rubin is the best 58 43 you’ll spend all week.
PLAYLIST: WITH MC EDITOR JASON CROMBIE
I’m a very unhappy person. To know me, you wouldn’t think so, but I’m absolutely miserable. Tears of a clown I guess. This playlist I made to accompany issue #43 is a direct reflection of my inner turmoil, my self loathing…
NEW MUSIC: YONATAN GAT
Ooooh I’ve stumbled on something really good here. I’m tickled pink with this discovery. And what a discovery you are, Yonatan Gat. Also, is this some kind of exotic way of spelling Jonathan? I’m sold.
NEW MUSIC: NAOMI PUNK
I really like these guys. I saw them play a few months ago and I was really impressed. It’s a very interesting contemporary interpretation of 90′s grunge/punk whatever the fuck. They have a new album coming out in August on Captured Tracks, above is the first single, Television Man. Also check out The Feeling its a…
