Brisbane rockers Dead Letter Circus came through Melbourne, supported by I Am Giant, the Northcote Social Club being one of the latest to be rocked by the frenetic live band! The 'While You Wait Tour' has been such a great one so far - check out Kimberley Salmond's shots from the Melbourne show!

Live Review: Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders + Laura Jean - Northcote Social Club, Melbourne (07.11.14)

Its launch day of Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders' new release Playmates and a jolly Northcote Social Club crowd is hydrating fairly irresponsibly to mark the occasion. You feel like the dwindling patience of a rowdy Friday night crowd and the predominately new and unheard material of Jack Ladder and co. is a dangerous and incompatible cocktail, but thankfully it’s a feeling that washes over you much like the sultry baritone of Jack Ladder (aka Tim Rogers) himself.

the AU interview: Hollie Fullbrook of Tiny Ruins (New Zealand) on their latest offering and upcoming tour!

Tiny Ruins is a project out of New Zealand that defies its name. 'Tiny' and 'ruined' are two adjectives that are not welcome when it comes to swooning over the delicate and beautifully crafted numbers that are born from the creative fires of Hollie Fullbrook and band. We'll soon get proof when Tiny Ruins grace Australian shores this July off the back of a wonderful new collection of songs that can be found from their latest offering Brightly Painted One. I was lucky enough to take some time with Hollie to talk tour, album and anything in between.

Live Review: Dustin Tebbutt + The Tambourine Girls - Northcote Social Club, Melbourne (16.05.14)

It's hard to believe it was only twelve months ago, that Dustin Tebbutt appeared on our radars. With two EP releases and a Triple J Unearthed Artist of The Year nomination, Dustin Tebbutt is quickly becoming one of Australia's favourite singer songwriters. Tonight, Dustin took to the stage for the last of his sold out shows in Melbourne playing a beautiful and intimate candlelit set, in front of an attentive crowd.
