Following the release of their debut full-length album Spend Life, Brisbane’s Make More chats to Triana Hernandez about the progression of their sound, the formation of the album and discussing time as currency.
In the digital age finding a romantic connection with someone new might be easier, but still carries pitfalls. Throughout You Beauty’s ILLYWHACKA, the inner workings of an online predator forms the basis of a story, one that takes listeners from the depths of his dark ideas to his possible redemption in the face of finding true love. I spoke to Will Farrier about the album and the notion of bad people changing their ways.
The Ocean Party return with a new album this month even though the dust had barely settled on their 2014 effort. Light Weight is the fifth album from the group that thrives on the continual cycle of writing, recording, touring and repeating.

Layered in meaning and doused in heady post-punk atmosphere, It’s You by Gold Class is one of the more thematically striking albums of 2015 thanks in no small part to the bold and powerful observations littered throughout.

Adelaide four-piece, Bad//Dreems are set to release their first full-length LP, Dogs At Bay. In a series of interviews undertaken since 2013, guitarist Alex Cameron discusses the initial inspiration for the band, the band’s place in the lineage of Australian rock and roll and defending against aspersions that Aus-rock can’t be intelligent or sensitive.
The release date for Deaf Wish’s new album, Pain, fast approaches. As the first full-length release from the band since 2010’s Mercy, there is a strong murmur of excitement from the underground. As many prepare to inflict Pain upon themselves, I spoke to guitarist Jensen Tjhung about how it came together and what people can expect after years in the wilderness.
