Twin channel distortion with the most bogan aussie artwork ever. Love it. Continue reading Straya Drive – Kink Guitar Pedals
Honest and passionate ‘The Last Goodbye’ is the kind of album to tease your melancholy and comfort you at the same time. Continue reading Aburden – The Last Goodbye (Greyscale) 2018
The first rule of fuzz is: whatever works for one player will most likely repel another. As a result there are heaps of different fuzz based effects on the market. I clicked with this one. Continue reading Absolution Fuzz – Kink Effects
Sounding more like a sci-fi soundtrack than a prog-rock album this has more ambience and 80’s synth than a Hans Zimmer score. Lots of ideas and extra’s crammed into a sprawling ambitious and psychaldelic album. Continue reading AlithiA – The Moon Has Fallen
Strong. That’s the one-word summary of this EP.
Whilst scrolling through my feed I came across a beautiful Telecaster for sale in Victoria (not the one pictured) from a guy who made it himself. I was immediately intrigued and decided to ‘follow’ his page to see what else he had.

I knew nothing before diving in.

Don’t like your jaw hitting the floor…? Skip right on past please. Continue reading Hadal Maw – Charlatan (2018)
I’m a music fan and getting to do a Q&A with a band you really like is a buzz.

So when given an opportunity to get a few words in with Circles drummer Dave Hunter ahead of the release of ‘The Last One’ I had to take it! Continue reading Q&A w/ Dave Hunter from Circles
