ISSUE 45: LEIF PODHAJSKY
You may or may not be familiar with the name Leif Podhajsky – and you more than likely can’t pronounce the name Leif Podhajsky – but you will almost certainly be aware of the work of Leif Podhajsky, because it is very good.
ALBUM REVIEW: PETITE NOIR EP
Petite Noir’s debut EP, The King of Anxiety, is a real kick in the guts to anyone moaning about how hard it is to sound slick on your debut record. Dude sounds like he’s been at it for decades.
HANNI EL KHATIB’S ‘MOONLIGHT’ SCREENING
Last night in the thick of Downtown LA , HUF and Innovative Leisure put on an intimate event for 100 friends and family to celebrate the release of Hanni El Khatib’s new album ‘Moonlight’, and screen an accompanying VHS film.
LIVE REVIEW: THE GROWLERS
Last week, The Growlers graced Sydney’s shores with a show at The Roller Den in Erskineville. By a stroke of great fortune, I had already spent some time with The Growlers earlier that very morning. Doing what, you ask? It’s super top secret. CIA sort of stuff, you wouldn’t understand.
LIVE REVIEW: THE KOOKS
The Kooks are currently doing a national tour of Australia in support of their latest album ‘Listen’. Last night they decided to stop by the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney to break a few hearts & play some music. The screams of the fan girls are still ringing in my ears.
NEW MUSIC: RYLEY WALKER
Two things: Nick Drake isn’t dead, and what the hell is that furry thing in this video? Is it a teddy bear with 4 legs?

MONSTER CHILDREN PRESENTS: POND
Get your rocket ships ready: Pond are comin’ to town. How do we know? ‘Cause we’re presenting the tour, ya space cadet. Pond have just announced two shows in Sydney and Melbourne next month.
LIVE REVIEW: RUN THE JEWELS
You know that baseline. It starts by vibrating in your chest, reaches about 7.1 on the richter scale then somehow makes its way into your autonomic nervous system.
YOUR WEEK WITH MC: SYDNEY
There’s been some real good times over the last couple of weeks. Now everyone’s spilling back home, some feeling frail, others energised and rejuvenated. What about the week ahead? We at MC have it sorted for you.
