zkye blue lp

live at mixmasters volume 1

****

Live at Mixmasters is the latest release from Adelaide stalwart Zkye Blue and is of the road worn and tested quality anyone who has seen Zkye Blue live would come to expect. Recently Live at Mixmasters won the album of the year at the Adelaide roots and blues awards, and I’m […]

drown this fury single

fracture
****

 

Drown This Fury are a metal core band on the up and up. Another single was recently published on the cover of a well known magazine, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this single in the same position very soon.

Starting off with a Queens of the Stone Age type radio dial shuffle before getting […]

lazyeye lp

single malt blues
****

Lazyeye are relatively new on the scene forming in 2013, but they certainly have hit the ground running. They released their debut album Move Me and promptly won Album of the Year at the South Australian Blues & Roots Awards followed by a slew of other awards.

Now, being a man with a fondness […]

banjo jackson lp

self titled
****

 

Banjo Jackson has been traipsing the streets of Adelaide for quite some time now, formerly of Jimmy and The Mirrors and currently forging a great solo path on a worldwide scale.

It is easy to pick straight away – this is folk pop done at its best; there are shades of Paul Kelly as may […]

cozmo beregofsky lp

drunken monkey
**1/2
 

Cozmo Beregofsky is a emcee based out of Adelaide who has been plying his trade in local scene since late 2012. ‘Drunken Monkey’ is his first full length release and he has received national radio airplay within this short period – an impressive feat!

The first thing that is apparent on first listen is the […]

timberwolf ep

flux
*****
Timberwolf, or Chris Panousakis, is an upcoming indie folk artist from Adelaide. It seems in a relatively short space of time he’s built quite the swell of support behind him and after listening to his five tracks available online it’s not hard to see why. He’s garnered four star reviews of his songs from Triple […]

the sherrahs lp

built on stone
***1/2
The Sherrahs are essentially country music royalty around these parts. Inducted into the SA Country Music awards some time ago and with many accolades either side of that I knew upon getting this release in the mail that I was in for some great quality country and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.The Sherrahs first […]

the clangers ep

self titled
****
Now my friends this is do it yourself at it’s finest, no messing about with fancy packaging just a brown paper cardboard sleeve with hand written black sharpie writing…most things that come in brown paper bags appeal so let’s see how this goes…

Opening with Best Day of the Year the reverb-drenched home made feel […]

vane of barbs ep

fell
**1/2
Yet another wintery summer day and the latest review couldn’t have been more appropriate Vane of Barbs new EP Fell. Beautifully packaged with an intriguing winter themed artwork…I had to put a jumper on.

First track “Science Without Humanity” is slightly polarising. It is easy to see where the inspiration lies and it seems to have […]

the good questions lp

light place
****1/2

The arrival of Light Place by The Good Questions put a smile on my dial. I’ve long enjoyed Marta Bayly’s vocals and guitar work from her other project, Andy & Marta, and have also enjoyed Simon Frank at the various live shows I’ve seen around the traps.

Light Place didn’t disappoint. Starting off with the […]

craig atkins lp

fall or fly
****

 

Appropriately as my pet Galah squawks madly in the backyard (‘Mr Cash’ for those playing at home), Craig Atkins’ new release Fall or Fly features a lone feather on the album cover, very striking and appropriate for the title.

Opening track ‘Open Road’ is a well suited number to start things with […]

ben gel lp

the baddest man in shit town

****
As I sit at my writing desk enjoying a well deserved whiskey, I contemplate the title of my review subject, the delightfully titled ‘The Baddest Man In Shit Town’ by Ben Gel & The Boneyard Saints. I wonder what could be in store. A country and western epic? A rap […]
