It was a special night out at The Lansdowne in Sydney last night, where for the less than the price of a pizza, I got to see three outstanding acts. Heading the bill was Telenova from Melbourne.

Agnes Manners share exclusive studio diary from their debut album Fantasia Famish

September 21, 2020

Melbourne-based band Agnes Manners released their debut record Fantasia Famish last week. Agnes Manners is the brainchild of former Hellions member Matt Gravolin. His output as Agnes Manners, however, is slower and quieter than what Hellions fans might expect, allowing for Gravolin’s sleek baritone voice and poetic lyrics to really shine. Agnes Manners has since […]

How The New Colossus Festival became New York City’s final party before the lights went out

March 18, 2020

I write this sitting in self-isolation in Toronto, Canada – as countries around the world are closing borders, scrambling to “flatten the curve” as the reality of the spread of Coronavirus sinks in. I, like too many, had been rather blasé about the whole thing – I mean I was sanitizing surfaces, washing my hands […]
