Singer-songwriter, Lakyn, is keeping things busy right now, with new single ‘West’, a nationwide tour with Vera Blue and announcing a run of headline dates that bring him to the Grace Emily in Adelaide on Wednesday 25th October.
Put simply, Gang of Youths are the best band in the country right now. And they are a band in the true sense of the word, with the five members working together to create something truly special in a dynamic, high-energy live show.
Some big albums dropped this past month, so we’re catching up on releases from Gang of Youths, Arcade Fire and Paul Kelly.
Neil Finn clearly enjoys a challenge and is, thankfully, blessed with the artistry to live up to the task he sets for himself on latest album, Out of Silence.
It was evident throughout the show that Dempsey is genuinely grateful we still turn up in numbers to experience his music, mindful that this gig fell in competition to the Socceroos’ World Cup qualifier and a few other gigs around town. But when you get this kind of quality performance, you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
POND’s follow up to Man It Feels Like Space Again is a triumph, marrying the sonic creativity of Berlin-era Bowie with some New Romantic style earworms, while also retaining more than a hint of the garage glam this band does so well.
This is first rate rock’n’roll delivered with energy and authenticity, the kind of album that makes you want to see the band play live.
Now that festival season is behind us here, it’s time to catch up on some of the great music released over this last little while, including Ryan Adams, Kingwood, Temples and Dope Lemon.
The sixth studio album from Cold War Kids, LA Divine, is a satisfying soulful record packed with great moments, and the band’s strongest work since their debut effort.
The Palais was used to great effect on Tuesday evening for Kurt Vile’s solo show, providing fantastic atmospherics, as the idiosyncratic and talented troubadour played in front the magical moonlit vista on a balmy night.
