Though their name is virtually unknown around the world, The Jungle Giants are arguably one of the biggest bands in my home country Australia. You can't go anywhere these days without someone with 'alternative-taste' grabbing an aux cord and blasting Heavy Hearted. Granted however, The Jungle Giants have some quality work to their name. 2015's Speakerzoid is one of the best psychedelic rock albums of the 2010s and vastly underrated. Their next album, Quiet Ferocity, though a step-down, was ... read more

Was this as bad as Dissimulation? No. Is this a good album? No. Was I bored? Yes. I had pretty low expectations for All Over the Place. KSI is a charismatic YouTuber no doubt (certainly not my cup of tea, but 36 million people would disagree), but he is not an interesting rapper.

The thing that initially grabbed my attention with this record is just how clean the production is. Claire's DIY sensibilities are still there, however with the help of Jack Antanoff (a name that is practically inescapable in the world of pop music these days), a superb level of detail ... read more

To me, the greatest mystery in music of the last 10 years is how Dance Monkey reached number 1 in over thirty countries. How is it that Tones and I is just about the biggest thing to come out of Australia since Tame Impala (and even then, her success eclipses that of Kevin Parker). Why do I ask this? Because every time I decide to engage in her music, I am lost for words. There is nothing redeemable, interesting or new on offer. Welcome To The Madhouse is no different. Rarely has a body of ... read more
