LIVE REVIEW: TY SEGALL

The first chords of the encore hummed through the speakers and veins and souls of one of the most emphatic crowds I’ve seen. Could it be? Oh god, it is. AC/DC’s – Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.

LIVE REVIEW: KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD

9 months ago, on a humid, fly blown night we were lying in a field in Western Australia. Absolutely ruined after a recent music tour, we hit the beers pretty hard in celebration.

TOP ALBUMS OF 2014

I’m not gonna get all dramatic, but music got me through a lot this year. The gift of sound and melody enriched my life, mended my heart and moved me to tears, both happy and sad. Here are the albums that did it.

NEW MUSIC: J.COLE

Commercial hip hop is kind of my guilty pleasure. But after a good (and I mean real good) hour of Drake Top 40 jams, I start to feel a little disheartened about the state of popular music. J.Cole’s new album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive changes that.

LIVE REVIEW: VIOLENT SOHO

Fuck me it’s refreshing to see a band like Violent Soho get up on stage and tear the place to shreds. I listen to so much 90’s punk and rock from bands that don’t tour anymore.

Enjoy. Download here until the 17th December.    …

On Tuesday night, while the sky above Los Angeles cried her eyes out, California’s own Cass McCombs sung out a different organ at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. There was no place else I’d have rather been.

BEST MUSIC VIDEO EVER

This video should come with a warning. A dangerously cool warning, that is. (I know, Dad – learned from the best.) Real talk though, this video is incredible and the fact that it has been sitting gathering dust for the last 30 years is a travesty.
