Album Review: The Amity Affliction - Let The Ocean Take Me (2014 LP)

Post-hardcore Queenslanders The Amity Affliction have just released their new LP Let The Ocean Take Me which offers a noticeably different approach in comparison to their older material. While the unclean vocals of frontman Joel Birch remain prominent, the general vibe of the track-list is less intense which has allowed the release to garner mainstream exposure in the form of Triple J feature album and ARIA top 40 singles. Although the band has adopted a slightly softer sound, Let The Ocean Take Me is still a distinctly Amity release with lots of growing potential.

Festival Review: Vans Warped Tour - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (29.11.13)

Friday saw the first Australian leg of the Warped Tour since 2002, bringing with it the weight of punk rock folklore. On entry to the RNA Showgrounds, festival goers were welcomed by 35 degree heat, the smell of vinyl tents and one big-arse half pipe. I settled in for a long day in front of the outdoor stage which played host to the more punk end of Warped’s musical spectrum; with the indoor stage leaning towards metalcore. As more of the band shirt brandishing masses rolled in there was an anticipatory buzz of expectation. The crowd comprised largely of a generation who’d made a yearly ritual of staring longingly at the US tour’s line-up and now finally came their chance experience the legendary festival for themselves.

Australian hip-hop has made it into the mainstream and Illy’s fourth album release, Cinematic, has been highly anticipated, however with Aussie hip-hop making it into the mainstream it’s susceptible to the same problems hip-hop has globally: over-production.
