Single of the Day: Matt Corby "Monday" (2015)

It's been a long wait for new Matt Corby music. Despite playing headline shows to thousands of people around Australia, the singer is yet to release his debut album. His new track, "Monday" screams Jeff Buckley influences, and we're definitely not complaining about that; layered vocals and simple percussion create an atmospheric space for Corby's falsetto to sit perfectly over. Give it a listen here...

When the first VANFEST was held back in May, it brought some great live music and DJs through to The Vandenberg in Forbes, NSW for the first time and was a resounding success. Now, another installment of the festival has been announced for the Forbes Showgrounds, bringing a strong selection of Australian talent to the regional area on December 6th. The festival, brainchild of Grant and Matt Clifton will be headlined by Chet Faker and Matt Corby, wrapping up a diverse day and night of music in the Central West!

Festival Review: Byron Bluesfest (Day Two) - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (18.04.14)

When faced with a festival that spans five days, it can be slightly daunting when it comes to planning your timetable for each day. Day two of Bluesfest coincides with Good Friday and arriving on site for my second round, there’s definitely a festive vibe in the air, albeit less chocolate.

Album Review: Various Artists - Spirit of Akasha: Celebrating Morning of the Earth (2014 LP)

Spirit of Akasha is the compilation soundtrack for the Australian film of the same name. This two-disc insight into surf vibes, psychedelics and folk rock provided by names such as Pond, Matt Corby, Atoms for Peace and Grouplove - to name a few - is an excellent piece of music, but I realised that if I wanted to review this compilation, I had to understand what it was trying to achieve. Every good album has its own story, like a mission statement and to do that I had to discover the story of the original film - Morning of the Earth.

Live Review: Matt Corby + Bears Den - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (24.10.13)

Thursday marks the third time I’ve seen Matt Corby perform live, and every time has been a different, almost spiritual experience. The man has the ability to transport the audience to another atmosphere.

Live Review: Matt Corby + Bear's Den + Bree Tranter - Hordern Pavilion (11.10.13)

Tonight would be a night of indie-folk music galore, but it would also be a night of thousands of screaming teenage fangirls. I was bracing myself to work out which of the two would be more overwhelming.

Album Review: Crucible - The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors (2013 LP)

One would have to have a lot of balls to fix that iconic thing that is not broken. (Definitely not broken.) Fifteen of the bravest bands and beings on the face of this earth have gathered to show respect to one of the greatest Aussie bands of all time Hunters & Collectors. They have come forward to make a go of interpreting a handful of songs by the much-regarded ‘Hunners’, and Crucible – The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors is the product of their valiant efforts.
