The good-vibes bar was set high early as Christopher Port broke-in the growing crowd with a track of warm swelling synths, tight garage, two-step and soulful vocal samples. The enthusiasm seemed to reverberate around the room as the set progressed and was very well-deserved. Port’s set had a spontaneous feel to it, and the surging bass and percussive breakdowns made good use of Howler’s system...

Ed Kuepper isn’t particularly disposed to analysing his legacy. But maybe he doesn’t need to be. After all, there are people out there willing to do that for him: the discography of the celebrated musician, a player who has contributed to bands as diverse as The Saints and Laughing Clowns, has been lauded as one of the most celebrated in contemporary Australian music history, and he is an...

It’s easy to assume Remi Kolawole and his producer/drummer Justin ‘Sensible J’Smith have known one another their entire lives.

 

The Melbourne-based duo are about to see out what has been a remarkably busy 2016 with a final national tour in support of the second album to bear the Remi name, Divas & Demons. The record has been one of the most rapturously received Australian...

Unfortunately both James Moloney and the Mad Dog Harrisons and Grenadiers fell victim to some of rock’s greatest pitfalls.
