Austin City Limits Festival

Austin, Texas calls itself ‘the live music capital of the world’, a bold statement but a justified one. The state capital, nestled in America’s deep south, has been rapidly accumulating more and more attention, and is on the tip of many a music-savvy tongue. In recent years it has blossomed …

Album Review: Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks – Wig Out At Jag Bags

If Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks’ new album, Wig Out At Jag Bags, sounded much different to their previous five records we might all start worrying about the former Pavement frontman. As it stands however, he retains his slacker image, jangly indie rock and a determination never to …

BOTW Album Review: CANT – Dreams Come True

Ever since CANT first graced my sound system I haven’t really been able to talk about anything else. It’s a beautifully complex record that uses the best of ‘80s synth pop to get your blood simmering along with moments of soul, early Beck, and Radiohead. It’s the first release from …
