The Ovolo Hotel, Melbourne

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Travel on Thursday 12 December 2013

You really couldn’t get a better location to explore Melbourne from than Little Bourke street. Unlike many big cities, the Melbourne CBD is actually a fun, bustling environment with plenty of bars, restaurants and boutique stores to keep you – and your wallet – busy. The Ovolo, a Mr and Mrs Smith Hotel, is right in the heart of it all, within easy walking distance to the trams (Melbourne’s gateway to everything cool) and just a stone’s throw (literally) from the constant energy of Chinatown.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Monday 2 December 2013

We threw a Lost At E Minor party in the old Chocolate Factory in Haymarket, Sydney, on October 10 for no other reason than it just felt like the right time to do it. The star of the party was local artist James Jirat Patradoon, who decorated the interior of the venue with his brilliant […]

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Travel on Thursday 17 October 2013

I had the recent pleasure of staying at the beautiful Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan and be immersed at the same time in the ever-changing cultural and culinary scene that envelopes the East Village of New York. The building is 21 stories high, with 145 rooms, most of which have floor to ceiling windows and […]

The Cake Wines Archi-Bottle Prize

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Design on Tuesday 15 October 2013

Our friends at Cake Wines have done it again, creating a buzz in both the art and wine worlds with their annual Archi-bottle Prize. The idea is simple: unearth the most talented emerging Australian artist and give them a Cake Wines label as a canvas. This year they received 350 entries, which are slowly being leaked online by Cake, including one by perennial Lost At E Minor favourite and Archibald Prize entrant, Del Kathryn Barton, who produced a typically colourful piece that would look stunning as the label on the bottle.

Banksy announces a month long takeover of the walls of New York

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.

MY SECRET PLAYLIST by Kelpe

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 1 August 2013

With influences ranging from the bleeps and bass of classic Warp artists to the spectral folk of John Renbourn, and the minimalism of Steve Reich to the percussive space-scapes of Do Make Say Think, the diversity of the music that inspires Kelpe finds reflection in his own sonic adventures, informing his ever evolving sound, combining […]

MY SECRET PLAYLIST by Josh Diamond, Gang Gang Dance

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 25 July 2013

Named after the patron saint of outsiders, taboo subject matter, and general disorder, Gang Gang Dance’s 2009 album, Saint Dymphna, is our favourite of their recordings to date. It was a stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed, God’s Money, with cinematic production characterised by 1970s Brian Eno intricacy and 2000s Timbaland immediacy. These are the songs that have inspired Gang Gang Dance’s Josh Diamond.

MY SECRET PLAYLIST by The B52s

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 25 July 2013

Our favourite retro-hipsters — and the only band to make Hawaiian shirts look at least kinda fashionable — The B52s have been doing it for more than thirty years, and they’re still writing great pop music. And we’re not surprised given the rather old-school Secret Playlist that Kate Pierson [first six songs] and Keith Strickland have assembled below.

MY SECRET PLAYLIST by Matt Maust, Cold War Kids

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Wednesday 24 July 2013

Californian quartet Cold War Kids not only have the best band name around, but they pack about as much indie cred as a pair of dirty Cons and a lazy side part. Bassist Matt Maust stepped up for a Secret Playlist that takes in everything from Cat Power to Billy Childish.
