★★★★

 

Melbourne-based producer Roland Tings’ latest release Each Moment A Diamond is a phenomenal piece of art; a six-track, 30-minute reprieve from the daily grind.

 

Once inside Tings’ aural landscape it’s near-impossible not to feel utter and complete bliss. The tools of his trade are much the same as those of other producers: 707 claps, Juno basslines and keys...

Peter Garrett watched the recent federal election at home with his family, having spent the day handing out how to vote cards in his former electorate.

 

In the mid-’80s, however, long before he served as the Labor MP for Kingsford Smith, Garrett was a senate candidate with the Nuclear Disarmament Party. Today, the ex-Midnight Oil frontman is sanguine about the drift of voters...

Ten years is a lifetime in pop music.

 

If we’re being realistic, it’s several lifetimes. In that sense, The Veronicas are pretty much invincible. Pop stars who live by trends tend to stall by trends, and while The Veronicas are not impervious to any musical zeitgeists – even when teaming up with mega-producers such as Max Martin – they have, by and large, either crested those...

Elliphant, AKA Ellinor Olovsdotter, is feeling a little under the weather.

 

It’s probably the first time in a few years that she’s slowed down, and it seems that all her running about has finally caught up with her.

 

It’s been more than two years in the making for Elliphant, but she’s at last released her debut studio album, Living Life Golden. Literally made...

★★★★☆

 

Proving that you can write three-to-four-minute pop-rock tunes and still remain vital, varied and interesting, Sydney band Tonight Alive blow all competition out of the water with their third album, Limitless. 

 

The first thing that hits you as you accept the band’s invitation to embark on this journey is the sheer diversity from track to track. Naturally,...

When you think of pop-rock bands, a particular sound and style springs to mind.

 

Tonight Alive may be considered a pop-rock outfit in certain circles, but their sound has the potential to surprise some, especially on their excellent new album Limitless. 

 

It’s an appropriate title, given the Sydneysiders have not confined themselves to the usual conventions of the...

★★★★☆

 

“I’ll believe it when I see it” was the attitude of many Mutemath fans hoping for a fourth studio album from the New Orleans alt-rockers.

 

After a four year hiatus, Vitals is the band’s well-crafted response to what it’s been dilly-dallying with for so long – a new electro rock sound. 

 

After marriages, management shifts and the departure of...

★★★½

 

A smooth blend of eclectic influences, Raury’s All We Need is not bound by mere genre or category.

 

This album is rich with elements from all over the musical spectrum and mature lyrical content well beyond his years, and a solid full-length attempt, despite an appearance of quantity over quality.

 

The world music flavours of ‘God’s Whisper’,...
