    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune often come flying seemingly out of nowhere in your late 20s/early 30s.

    It’s a scenario that singer/songwriter, Laurie Luke, has endured and ultimately turned into a creative force on his forthcoming debut EP, Way Back When. The first taste, a single called Rainbow Bomb, is released this week.


    Continuing our Retroperspective series - where an artist looks back on one of their older works – Davey Craddock gives us an insight into his 20012 EP release, Going Home. With a new album, One Punch, out now, there's some now in the zen - Ed.

    Grooving The Moo 2018 made its final stop for the year at Bunbury's Hay Park last Saturday, May 12. A fine time was had by all, with the artists catching our photographer's eye featured in the gallery above.


    Scott Arnold-Eyers has played in a diversity of bands going back two decades, most notably in Hard MarshMellow and Jesus Sandals.  While he remained musical, the way that life grows meant that he hadn’t gone the hard-slog band route for some time.

    Kid Congo Powers grew up Latino and gay on the mean streets of La Puenta, California, before falling in with the glam and punk street kids of LA and New York.

    Emerging refreshed from an already intense history, Perth outfit, Black Stone From The Sun, are a two-piece-feed of aggressive yet approachable fuzzed out psych-rock, splendidly captured on their debut album, Dreamalysis.

    Produced by Mitch McDonald of fellow beloved WA-rockers, The Love Junkies, Dreamalysis is a comprehensive offering of Sean Mackay (guitar/vocals) and Jack Nelson’s (drums/keys/vocals) stripped back rock vision writ large.


    Michael Hohnen, manager, friend and musical collaborator of Gurrumul has been hard at work in the lead up to the release of the late singer/songwriter's final album, Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow), as well as the nationwide opening of a documentary celebrating the beloved North-East Arnhem Land musician’s life.
