Album Review: The Basics - The Age Of Entitlement (2015 LP)

Conventional wisdom tells us that being frank is integral to being Australian: it’s what encourages us to be animated and what allows us to disparage our politicians. It’s what the pub rock tradition has been built on. But, as with the genre itself, attitudes have shifted over time: listeners still want critique, but they value subtlety.

Laura Marling, The Fall, Kiasmos and more featuring on Melbourne Festival's 30th anniversary music program!

The 2015 Melbourne Festival announcement has arrived today and in celebrating 30 years, the program is indeed reflective of a well-loved and respected event on the Australian arts calendar. From highly anticipated live shows from the likes of Laura Marling and The Fall, through to a brilliantly cast tribute performance to Patti Smith's Horses, the Melbourne Festival this year is going to have people talking for sure.

Album Review: The Basics - My Brain is Off (And I Like It) (2013 LP)

After a three-year hiatus, in September of last year, we saw The Basics returned to the stage to continue the epic journey they began more than 10 years ago. Recorded live at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, My Brain is Off (And I Like It) is a celebration of their return and is their second live album. The album showcases both old favorites as well as new songs, some only previously released in their Leftovers B-Side album.
