The Post I Thought I’d Never Write: Harry Styles Dropped His Album And It’s Freaking Awesome

Let's get one thing straight. I don't like Harry Styles. Sure, I respect him as an artist, but his 'style' (forgive me) just isn't my thing. His album release came and went and I totally ignored it.

The Best-Kept Secret In Modern Rock

Far. Out A few weeks ago, I was elbow deep in dirty dishes, chatting to a co-worker about music (what me? never!) and I asked him about his favourite band.

Two hours and six youtube videos featuring cartoon potatoes later, you realise you've accomplished nothing except an appetite for carbs... Well, maybe you don't procrastinate to the, erm, extreme that I do, but everybody finds it a... Continue Reading →

Boy and Bear: Limit of Love

Limit of Love is understated, yet memorable. The album is a collision of mellow tunes and a mess of vibrant tones; an innovative fusion of folk and rock. This is the third studio album the Australian band has produced, but it seems like they're more experienced. Hosking's vocals glide over the smooth guitar and synth tones.... Continue Reading →

The Getaway

The latest Red Hot Chili Peppers' record is attractive, fresh and peppered with their trademark bass-layered tones. In existence for a staggering 33 years, the band defies all critics by delivering an album which proves they can still surprise us. It's exciting to listen to such well-developed artistry; the collaboration with new producer Brian 'Danger... Continue Reading →
