It sounds a little cliché, but the first night of Bigsound really was a showcase of the variety of Australian musicians making waves at the moment. The spectrum of genres was amazing to see, and no doubt we’ll be hearing much more from these very talented artists.

Live Review: Safia + Boo Seeka + Owen Rabbit - Woolly Mammoth, Brisbane (27.08.15)

Safia have been absolutely killing it this year. With single after single, they have been getting so much radio play as well as selling out show gigs all across the country. The last time I saw Safia was at Brisbane’s BIGSOUND conference last year, and holy wow, what a difference a year makes. They have really stepped up their game and brought the production of their live show up to a whole new level.

Hello Asia! KOFFIA 2015 Film Review: A Matter of Interpretation (꿈보다 해몽) (South Korea, 2014)

Dreams are as mysterious and whimsical as life can be. Through A Matter of Interpretation (Hangul: 꿈보다 해몽), director, writer, and producer Lee Kwang-Kuk attempts to take the audience through a whimsical journey to explore the concept of dreams. The movie is made to be quite lighthearted and yet still intriguing. It offers a great cinematography that was a feast for the eyes, and full of symbolism that is quite a challenge to interpret, but of course that is only a part of the journey.

Live Review: Regurgitator + Godswounds + Mystery School - The Zoo, Brisbane (27.08.15)
