The wonderful sound that comes from Australian duo Angus & Julia Stone just keeps getting better. Their latest album, Down The Way, due for release in March, is again full of stunningly beautiful melodies.

Aesop Fragrance

By Zac in New Products on Friday 18 September 2009

We’ve been long time fans of Aesop, which is making quite a name for itself in the alternative beauty products space. So it was no surprise to hear they’ve entered the fragrance market. True to form, their new range of perfumes are distinctive, unorthodox and intense.

Feiyue shoes

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Fashion on Thursday 13 August 2009

Feiyue shoes have arrived in Australia and I can’t wait to get a pair of these treads on my hoofs. They look like they could be the new Onitsuka Tigers, but with more edge and personality. The story goes that these shoes were big in China in the 1920s, before a brand revival in 2006 got them some traction in Europe. You can join the chat over at their Facebook page or check them out in person via their Australian stockists, Tuchuzy (Sydney), Nique (Melbourne) and Brave New World (Perth).

ACO’s Great Romantics tour

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Events on Friday 19 June 2009

There’s something magic about being in the same space as those performing at the very height of their field. The Australian Chamber Orchestra have just kicked off their Great Romantics national tour and it was a treat to see them live in Newcastle, Australia for their first show. I’m no chamber orchestra aficionado, but I […]

Launching Newcastle’s The Clinic

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Events on Friday 29 May 2009

I moved to Newcastle late last year, though I still do a lot of work in Sydney. What a great city Newcastle is. It’s been breath of fresh air for me. For the first few months, I worked on Lost At E Minor and our online pubishing company, Conversant Media, from home. But then I heard about the Renew Newcastle project, launched by one of Australia’s creative stars (in terms of making things happen, not talking the talk), Marcus Westbury.

By Zac in New Fashion on Thursday 18 December 2008

I received a Kobe Beefcake t-shirt today and I’m already in meat-lover’s heaven. Who’d have thought all those funky shapes are actually cuts of meat? This new label from Kobe Japan is an insider’s (and meat-lover’s) treasure.

Is Google becoming our collective brain?

Zac Editor

By Zac in Cool Websites on Saturday 6 December 2008

By some estimates, Google has over half a million servers that each month crunch the equivalent of all the data in the entire library of congress 240 times over. Well over half of web users go to Google for answers to their questions, asking the machine over 400 million queries per day. Slowly but surely, Google is becoming our collective brain. Consider this: Google can now predict flu outbreaks weeks in advance simply by monitoring searches for flu terms (‘sore throat’), and aggregating this based on location. They’ve launched this service as Google Flu Trends. ‘From a technological perspective, it is the beginning’, says Eric E. Schmidt, Google’s chief executive. So where is this is all heading?

Illumination Ink

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Design on Friday 28 November 2008

Newcastle is now my home town and I’m enjoying meeting some of the interesting people living here. Working under the name of Illumination Ink, Heath Killen has a strong and refined style. His diverse portfolio includes everything from album art to corporate IDs and typography. In addition to his commercial work at Illumination Ink, he’s recently been producing a series of surreal Australian landscapes, some of which are on display at Flickr.

Dosh wallets

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Thursday 20 November 2008

I’ve always been a fan of functional minimalism, especially with personal items you use every day like wallets. So kudos to the guys at Dosh who’ve created a beautiful, paired back but stylish billfold wallet. It’s perfect for nights out when only a few credit cards, some ID and cash are needed.

Loving Lovells Lager

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Friday 24 October 2008

I’m a big fan of the resurgence of micro-breweries and boutique beers, so I was chuffed when a case of Lovells Lager was dropped off at the Australian Lost At E Minor headquarters. Let’s face it, all free beer tastes good. But Lovells is a really special drop. It has a clean, crisp flavour, and […]

Gin Wigmore live at Sydney’s Supper Club

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Events on Wednesday 30 July 2008

There’s something refreshing about Gin Wigmore’s stage show. Looking slightly grungy and unashamed to tell the crowd to hush-down, the New Zealand-born Wigmore’s voice surprises with its earthy, Macy Gray-like tone.
