Album Review: Half Moon Run - Dark Eyes (2012 LP)

And it's a free download for fans! It doesn't get much better than that.

Album Review: Bec And Ben - Butterknives To Razorblades (2012 EP)

If dark, distinctly-Aussie rock sounds appealing, you need to know Bec and Ben. The first song crawls up on you. Twenty seconds in, there’s a change; an echoing riff, speeding up gradually until the one minute mark. Another change. This riff is shorter. Sharper. Then Bec starts to sing, and they’re not the words you expect. ‘Scar tissue and I think I gotta bruise on my left side.’ BANG. “Collide”. One of the finest songs on a standout debut has begun.

Carr has crafted an EP full of striking and mesmerising tracks, that signal a bright future.

He was dropped by his label, turned a plane around, and done plenty of soul searching. Now he's back with his debut release Blood & Bone under his new moniker Buffalo Tales. We caught up with him to find out more.
