Wrapped: Splendour in the Grass 2014

The dust has finally settled on Splendour in the Grass for 2014. I have the remnants of a cheeky Splendour cough and there is still mud on my gumboots, but it’s been nearly two weeks so I’m starting to not get a bad case of the feels when I think about it now. It’s been...

Watch: Catlips - 'Kanimbla'

Watch: Catlips – ‘Kanimbla’

A little while ago, Perth’s Katie Campbell aka Catlips dropped her split single ‘Kanimbla / What U Want And Need (Are Different Things)’.

Listen: #1 Dads – ‘So Soldier’ (feat. Ainslie Wills)

Tom Iansek, well known for making up half of Melbourne outfit Big Scary, has been working on his solo project #1 Dads (formerly know as Dads) for quite sometime. 2011′s Man Of Leisure was a sensational LP, maybe it didn’t garner the attention it truly deserved, but I am starting to wander.

It’s all class. ‘Test & Recognise’ is from Seekae’s forthcoming third reccord, The Worry. “Two years...
