Talk Less: A decade of D.I.Y. by Lesstalk Records

 

‘Talk Less’ is a book available both in print and digital format which chronicles 10 years of the dedicated underground DIY label in Australia. It’s filled with candid and intense photos of shows, living rooms, laneways and garages getting filled with people, music, art and being torn apart!

You probably weren’t there. It wasn’t a big deal. The shows, these releases and artists aren’t trying to get all the attention. They aren’t necessarily trying to break through. They’re trying to be relevant and honest. So this book documents how Matheson and his people brought it all into being via that same organic zero-bullshit way.

Reside – Closing Doors EP (2017)

 

ClosingDoors_EP_Artwork_Press.jpgFrom the opening howls of ‘Fidelity’ and its melodic guitar searing behind it, I was instantly entranced. There’s an equal amount of melodic hardcore and punk rock to this that has my mind recalling the best moments of Set Your Goals and Citizen’s earlier work.

Spilt Cities – Life, On Hold (2017)

SC_life, on hold.jpg

Perth based outfit Spilt Cities’ are bringing the goods with their full length album ‘Life, On Hold’. A fully realised body of work that is so tastefully executed that you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re some old school shoegaze post-punk group you’re older sibling used to listen to in the 90’s. Sounds too good to be true, and yet..here I am telling you..this is incredible. Continue reading Spilt Cities – Life, On Hold (2017)

Far Away Stables have attempted a far reach with this new album. The ambition and intent to demonstrate musicality and musicianship is well on display as much as the bands grasp on melody and song writing. It’s not so much..technical..or progressive, it’s just very dramatic, busy and confident. Continue reading Far Away Stables – Between Rage and Serenity (2017)

Featured: Recovery Room – Interview

Sydney based emo/alternative rock band Recovery Room have recently released their first musical offering with their new EP ‘A Lesson In Letting Go’ and you can check out our review of their new EP here.

I (virtually) sat down with Dylan and Christian in a cute Facebook group chat the other day and asked them a few questions about their new project and how it all came together.

Recovery Room – A Lesson in Letting Go (2017)

Oh the nostalgia is strong on this one. Sounding like a cross between Death Cab For Cutie and Basement…the mid 00’s emo vibe is waaay big on this release and will resonate with anyone who enjoys the melodic heart-on-the-sleeve sound associated with it. It’s far from a rip off though, not a derivative genre copy. It’s a worthy new addition. I am all about this. Continue reading Recovery Room – A Lesson in Letting Go (2017)
