Written by on 2 October 2017

1 October, Big Top, Luna Park This is going to sound like a big old whinge, and believe me it’s not, but I have to go to a lot of shows alone. It’s part of the job and I love it, in fact, I enjoy them all the more. Being able to really soak up [...]

Food Court – ‘Good Luck’

Written by on 26 September 2017

Food Court has been a band in the back of my mind since I premiered a video of theirs over a year ago. With a creative and fun-filled take on punk-infused pop, I was really keen to get my hands on their debut album. Good Luck did not disappoint. As with any record, there are always [...]

Written by on 18 September 2017

“A rewarding five-day test.” The phone crackled in between words I’d never thought I would hear as a description of music.

Pond – ‘The Weather’

Written by on 27 April 2017

Do you ever look up at the stars and wonder - who will be our generation’s Rolling Stones, our Beatles, our Eagles? In 40 years, when we're in the twilight of life and looking back at music from our youth, who will be remembered, and who lost to the fog of time? Personally, I think [...]

Written by on 2 April 2017

There's no denying that Ali Barter has become a powerful voice for both women in the music industry and for female creatives across all forums, but as I sit down to speak with the Melbourne-based artist it becomes apparent that while she recognises the role she plays in the conversation, hers is one of many perspectives. "I think there [...]
