Live Review: Husky and The Trouble With Templeton – Oxford Art Factory (03.05.2012)

Brisbane-based The Trouble With Templeton are on stage at Oxford Art Factory, enchanting the audience with their laidback acoustic style. The lead singer is quite the conversationalist, as is evident between each song when he addresses the crowd. He said he’s enjoyed his stay in Sydney so far and thanks us for having him but… Continue reading Live Review: Husky and The Trouble With Templeton – Oxford Art Factory (03.05.2012)

Live Review: Stonefield, The Delta Riggs, and Kingswood – The Standard (27.04.2012)

Kingswood are the first band on stage and they set the ‘70s rock feel early in the night.  Lead singer Fergus Linacre is full of energy as he walks through the crowd and lands on the drum kit at the end of the set. Their music is loud and unrelenting and Linacre is an excellent… Continue reading Live Review: Stonefield, The Delta Riggs, and Kingswood – The Standard (27.04.2012)

Live Review: Tumbleweed, The Treatment, and Cabins – The Annandale (14.04.2012)

Cabins were the first band on stage at The Annandale and as more people shuffled in, the better they seemed to play. They’re a band doing the rounds of small Sydney venues and their work has started to pay off.  Their sexy cover of Edwyn Collins’s 'Never Met a Girl Like You Before' just keeps getting better. They have a definite stage presence that has improved along with… Continue reading Live Review: Tumbleweed, The Treatment, and Cabins – The Annandale (14.04.2012)

Live Review: Underground Lovers and The Laurels – Oxford Art Factory (17.02.2012)

The Laurels use their shoe gaze style and long guitar solos to create a psychedelic atmosphere and it’s easy to get lost in. They win over a gradually filling Oxford Art Factory with their dreamy vocals and clear enthusiasm. It’s hard to stay focused with their dreamy sound making your mind drift and lose concentration… Continue reading Live Review: Underground Lovers and The Laurels – Oxford Art Factory (17.02.2012)

Live Review: The Drums and Cults – Metro Theatre (08.02.2011)

It’s usually a bad sign when you can hear people’s conversations over the band that’s playing. And, disappointingly, this was the case for most of Cults’ set. This was a band who don’t look comfortable playing together and who aren’t sure of what to do with themselves on stage. Lead singer Madeleine Filon doesn’t move… Continue reading Live Review: The Drums and Cults – Metro Theatre (08.02.2011)

Live Review: Stone Parade, Freestate, and Is it Her – The Gaelic (03.02.2012)

The Gaelic looks full when I enter but there’s a lot of room at the front, close to the stage. The crowd are hanging back through Sydney band Is It Her’s set which is disappointing, since this band are energetic and look like they’re having fun. Even their rocking cover of The Killers’ ‘Mr Brightside’… Continue reading Live Review: Stone Parade, Freestate, and Is it Her – The Gaelic (03.02.2012)
