Music Video of the Day: Kelela “LMK” (2017)

August 10, 2017

First, there was Syd‘s Fin. Then came SZA‘s Ctrl. Most recently, we’ve heard from Kelela and her new tune, “LMK”, a sexy call out for those nights in the club where hook ups are frequent and caution is definitely thrown to the wind. This wave of enrapturing R&B is one we are so happy to be riding out at […]

August 10, 2017

This morning we were granted a look at the line up for this year’s Meredith Music Festival and of course, like every year, it’s pretty friggin sick.

How one iconic Sydney pub in operation since 1877 has survived the Lock Outs and Light Rail construction

August 10, 2017

It’s been hard to avoid all the negative talk about Sydney’s night economy since the lock out laws came into effect in 2014, keeping people out of venues and restricting alcohol consumption. Countless venues have closed, entire sections of the city have lost their nightlife, and hundreds of jobs have been lost along the way. If […]

Single of the Day: The Sand Dollars ft. Clare McLeod, True Live “Love Dust” (2017)

August 10, 2017

We’ve been digging The Sand Dollars for a minute now and in their latest single, “Love Dust”, we’ve seen yet another facet of the group’s musicality.

Exclusive Music Video Premiere: The Weary “Patti Smith” (2017)

August 10, 2017

The Weary are not wearisome at all, rather a dreamy bunch of Melbourne musicians making some equally dreamy guitar pop. Their music is slinky and guitar fuelled, inspiration drawn from Bruce Springsteen to Beach House. Their latest single, “Patti Smith”, is accompanied by a musing, voyeuristic film clip, directed by guitarist Josh Van Cuylenburg. It follows two young Melbourne […]

Film Review: Wind River (USA, 2017) is excitingly tense and beautifully shot

August 10, 2017

Having proven his worth as a screenwriter with both Hell or High Water and Sicario, Wind River serves as scribe Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut.  Arguably arriving with high expectations, Sheridan’s tight, often brutal thriller proves his workings with such professionals as David Mackenzie and Denis Villeneuve has paid off, showcasing an ease behind the lens […]

August 10, 2017

What began as a concept for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End DLC evolved into a substantial and important continuation for Naughty Dog’s mega successful cinematic action-adventure franchise, the result of which is Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

August 10, 2017

I’m a writer so there’s a few things I consider must-haves in a laptop. It should be lightweight, it should have a comfortable keyboard layout, it should feel good to type on and it should be quite nimble. In this regard, the Lenovo Yoga 910 Hybrid Laptop ticks the vast majority of my own personal […]

Review: Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport extends a warm welcome to the weary traveller

August 10, 2017

The hotels surrounding Sydney Airport see plenty of last-minute bookings and regular full-houses, so there’s no doubt that Mantra’s new addition to the area will be a hit. Airport hotels aren’t the most exciting stays in any city (although you do find the occasional stunner), but they are the most convenient for weary travelers who […]

Anyone schooled in the US Punk scene of the late 70’s and 80’s probably knows a thing or two about the significance of Washington D.C.

August 10, 2017

I speak from personal learnings when I say that most people are probably unaware that One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was a play on Broadway before it was that classic film starring Jack Nicholson. That the play has even starred the likes of Danny DeVito (who went on to reprise his role in the […]
