Five Tracks: Hessian Magazine

Few people can tell the tale of that time they started a magazine, I’m fortunate to know one person who can. I met Siggi McCarthy at uni and we’ve been friends ever since. When I heard she was taking on the mammoth task of starting a magazine, I knew if anyone had the skills to...

Robert Muiños – I Was Dreaming

Listen: Spirit Faces - 'Hold It Down' ft. Zebra Zap

Listen: Spirit Faces – ‘Hold It Down’ ft. Zebra Zap

There is certainly an art to the less is more theory. Some pizza places get it right, some fail pretty hard. There’s clothing labels that do it well, but then again no shortage of the badly confused.

Five Tracks: Catman

A few days ago, I put the call out, asking for people to contribute to the blog in the form of five tracks by Australian artists that mean something to them. I received some great responses, this is the first of them.  Tonight, we’re being taken for a spin by Catman, aka – Adam Rogan...
Listen: Montgomery - 'War Cry'

Listen: Montgomery – ‘War Cry’

It’s not every day you hear a track that hooks you straight up, there’s almost a slight nervousness that the song might change pace, shift key and you’ll fall out of the trance. ‘War Cry’ will keep you hanging on till the very end. Detailed information on Montgomery is hard to come by, the press release was tight liped but if...
