Album Review: Wavves X Cloud Nothings - No Life For Me (2015 LP)

Nathan Williams and Dylan Baldi are two sides of the same coin. Both artists released their first two records from their parent’s garage and basements, to slowly amass a following. Both took this success to bolster their ranks, expanding into full band formations and release more expansive critically acclaimed and commercially successful records. Williams on King of The Beach; Baldi on Attack On Memory.

Live Review: Wavves + Bad//Dreems - The Ed Castle, Adelaide (27.07.2013)

A rainy Saturday night flooded with patrons dying to catch surf-rockers Wavves, talk about a wet night. Opening for the Californian boys was local act Bad//Dreems. Every time I catch these guys, which is becoming increasingly frequent, they continue to improve and captivate the audience, warming the crowd up perfectly for the main course.

Festival Review: Splendour in the Grass Day One - North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay (26.07.13)

The sun was out as more than 17,500 punters descended on North Byron Parklands, the permanent Splendour in the Grass site for the first time, for a day headlined by past festival favourites Mumford and Sons. Situated about 20 minutes north of Byron Bay, this is the site the Splendour organisers bought to be the event's home quite a few years ago, though has been caught in council approval hell ever since. This resulted in two glorious years in Woodford and a brief return to Belongil Fields down the road last year. But, much like Bluesfest before it, we now have the chance to get used to a brand new site, which will no doubt grow and develop in the years to come; as it will do by pure capacity alone. As part of the deal with council, the festival is starting off with a reduced capacity this year, and will add more patrons gradually (by the thousands) in the years to come, with 25,000 being the reported capacity that will be allowed in 2014. We'll even be seeing a series of other events on the site, such as the recently announced Byron Falls Festival over New Years.
