Groove Armada are one of our favourite electronic music acts of the past decade or so. Made up of Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, they have released eight studio albums. We got the rundown from Andy Cato on the music that has inspired their own distinctive sound.
Australian duo, Empire Of The Sun, feature Luke Steel from The Sleepy Jackson and Nick Littlemore from Pnau, each stepping our their respective shadows to create a sound and look for Empire Of The Sun that is absolutely, totally electric. These are the songs that inspire Luke Steele, written in his own words.
So, we have a wickedly talented and creative producer and DJ laying down what’s good and what’s, well, not so good. Yes it’s, wait for it, just a little longer, nearly there. Ok, it’s Moby, from some otherworldly universe. This is his MY SECRET PLAYLIST, the songs that inspire him, written in his own words.
Polvo are a critically acclaimed and widely influential rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, that were active during the 1990 before reforming recently for a benefit for WKNC at the Pour Haus. The band was fronted by vocalists-guitarists Ash Bowie and Dave Brylawski. We asked David Brylawski to give us a rundown, in his […]
We love this new initiative from the City of Sydney and its Lord Mayor, Clover Moore. Sydneysiders are invited to contribute their ideas to make the city a more cultural and creative city. As Moore says: ‘Can we inspire an even richer creative culture? How do we make sure creative people can afford to live and work here? What persuades people to get involved, go out to shows or invest in local work?’
These portrait shots by Dutch photographer Morten Koldby capture our furry and feathered friends in much the same way you’d snap a particularly photogenic human. With the animals all staring straight into the lens, you get a sense of the wisdom and insight the lurks just beneath the eyes. Beautiful? Yes. But hauntingly so.
These breathtaking photos were taken by Martin Rietze, a self-proclaimed “volcano-chaser” and the creative force behind the Alien Landscapes on Planet Earth website.

What’s not to like about the fun, fluoro-dripped world of New York illustrator James Blagden, whose work is so bright and trippy, I feel like I need to wear shades just to do them justice. This guy going to be big, big, BIG. If these illustrations don’t do it for you, check out his stunning […]

I’m thinking of getting some ink work done, so the arrival of this inspiring book from Gestalten couldn’t have been better timed. Forever: The New Tattoo reveals the subtle, and not so subtle, talents of some of the better artists out there, whose different styles and approaches contrast wonderfully across the book’s 250+ pages. Of particular interest was the work of New York-based Thomas Hooper and the esoteric work of Yann Black, but really, you could open the book to any page and find something that you’ll want inked on your body forever. Indeed.
Ah, this is novel. In more ways than one. In the Hysterical Literature series, women read excerpts of great literature, trying to stay composed while someone under a table is discreetly pleasuring them with a vibrator.
