Exclusive Track Premiere: Dallas Frasca "Corazon En La Seda" (2015)

Australian riff rock trio, Dallas Frasca will release their highly anticipated third studio album, Love Army, on April 17th, through Australian independent label Social Family Records. It’s the culmination of almost 10 years of hard work, performing over 700 shows, seven international tours and fast becoming one of Australia’s most exciting and revered bands across the globe. Set to close the album, we're excited to premiere the track "Corazon En La Seda" on the AU today.

New Music Video: Dallas Frasca "You Are Beautiful" (2014)

Directed and produced by Scott Major comes the new film clip from Dallas Frasca for the great tune, "You Are Beautiful". To put it simply, it's a video about celebrating the human form - we've got our own issues with our bodies and how we look, but "You Are Beautiful" is about recognising what makes everyone individual and indeed, beautiful. Inside and out. The track is unapologetically passionate in its lyricism and its delivery, while that chaotic guitar and relentless percussion incite a fury of positivity and power that is so great to see in a climate where looks seem to be everything.

Dallas Frasca release single and announce national tour!

Three-piece Melbourne rock band Dallas Frasca release their new single "You Are Beautiful" this Friday, October 24th and will be hitting the road for a massive 17-date national tour to support it.

Festival Review: Follow the Sun Festival - Wigley Reserve, Glenelg (05.10.14)

Dave Elmes, the founder of the new Follow the Sun Festival in Glenelg, needs to be commended. The new kid on the festival circuit in South Australia had its first run over the Labour Day long weekend and brought about the perfect excuse to spend a Sunday down by the beach, enjoying some great live music and general excellent vibes.

Live Review: Stone Music Festival: Day Two - ANZ Stadium (21.04.13)

There is a lot that can be said about Stone Music Festival. What happened to the event before tickets went on sale was something quite telling of the nature of the current industry, and what happened after tickets went on sale perhaps showed the organiser's lack of foresight, albeit a strong ability to adapt. And unlike two other festivals who were cancelled in the last week due to low ticket sales, not to mention existing in a genre where artists tend to drop off like flies, to all the credit of the Stone Music Festival organisers, they still got the event off the ground, and by all indications - a few gripes from some early ticket purchasers aside - everyone in attendance had a great time. I was only able to attend the second day, but here are my thoughts on the fantastic music of the day - and as for the rest of my thoughts about of the event as a whole, I'll save that for a separate editorial.

Album Review: Various Artists - Green Line Grooves (2013 LP)

Green Line Grooves

Released early February this year Green Line Grooves is a collaboration of Australian artists. There’s a lot of love in this album and for good reason too. If you’re not clued in, The Thin Green Line Foundation’s mission is to “protect the protectors”. In creating this album, they aim to raise funds to support park rangers all over the globe. There are over thousands of rangers killed in action every year. Some attacked by poachers while others suffer some of Mother Nature’s nastier moments. The album has a bluesy rock vibe to its skeleton, with lots of little surprises in the body of the sound.
