Album Review: Play It Again - Classic Hollywood (2014 LP)

Play It Again – Classic Hollywood (LP 2014)

For any nostalgia driven Hollywood movie buffs, and lovers of the grand music scores from classic movies, this album is a little slice of heaven. Each track transports the listener to another time and place, swept away in magnificent and timeless orchestrations, with the only down-side of leaving you a little jarred upon returning to the here and now.

Various - Popboomerang Records Presents Electric and Eclectic Rarities (2011 LP)

Don’t let the name Popboomerang Records Presents: Electric and Eclectic Rarities fool you, this collection isn’t about unearthing the obscurest of the obscure. And it certainly hasn’t got any songs by polyphonic throat singers, Beatle Barkers, or strange ambient noises that some may argue doesn’t even constitute “music”. Nope.

Falls Music and Arts Festival - Lorne, Victoria (29.12.10 - 01.01.11)

I thought I would be sick of Falls by now. As my third consecutive year at the festival, I felt I had seen the best and worst it had to offer: freezing cold versus sweltering temperatures; storms; broken tents; new-year’s countdowns; and dancing until 7am. So when I arrived at the festival just out of Lorne last week, I was tired in anticipation of the days to come.
