This video, directed and shot by my husband, James Gulliver Hancock, was a concept based around ‘the body as landscape’. I become like a mother-nature figure; resembling a train-set model, covered by forest, farmland, town, a road, a pond etc. I eventually start to connect all the little creatures that reside on me with their significant other. It’s a true romance!
I first heard Hiatus Kaiyote in a venue in Fitzroy, Melbourne, in 2012 and was positively overwhelmed by what I experienced. They are an amazingly talented bunch of artists that are definitely getting the recognition they deserve with their soulful, sonically dizzying songs which take you some place else. Behold the wondrous Nakamarra.
Sometimes you come across an artist who really touches your soul, whether it be a painter, a dancer, or in this case, a musician. My good friend, Stephen Hunt (yes, he played Matt Hancock on Neighbours and, yes, he is famous for being one of just 200 people to successfully swim the English Channel in […]
Having been to many a festival in the past, but never a Homebake, I was excited about my first time experience, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement. What a fabulously different festival experience!
We love the animated video for the new single from Belgium-born Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, Gotye. He releases Easy Way Out on November 28, the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album, Making Mirrors.
Emma Davis’s debut self-titled album has been on frequent rotation in the Lost At E Minor offices. Recorded out of Newtown, the album is full of delicious melodies which allow her voice to shine through. The killer track is Machines, which you can hear after the jump.
Following on from her brother’s solo album, Australian singer-songwriter Julia Stone has released her own debut album, The Memory Machine. The songs were all written in New York last year while she was in between Angus & Julia Stone tours. These songs could easily have appeared one of the duo’s album. However, having only Julia […]
So I’ve had this idea for a reality TV show: ask a well known musician or producer to re-record a classic hit of the past. How would, for instance, My Sharona sound if recorded today using today’s production approaches and music styles? I reckoned it’d be an interesting show.
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. The style continues from their previous album, A Book Like This, with the tracks swapping between Julia’s enchanting vocals and Angus’s […]
Drum roll please. Louder. LOUDER. Ok, that’ll do it. After several months of work, and numerous strong coffees, we’re pleased to unveil our latest website, The Colour, a reader submitted collection of beautiful Australian-related images. Yup, The Colour features the best in new art, photography, illustration, music, cool products and fashion, and it all comes […]
My wife often wonders why I rarely wear shorts, even in the stifling heat of a New York summer’s day. Well, as a musician for many years back in Australia, I learned the ‘no-short’ rule very quickly. That is, unless you’re a founding member of Silverchair, a guitar tech with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, […]
Having called it a day back in 2001 and with no back catalogue available anymore, this fine underrated Aussie band is very quickly being forgotten about and it is high time something is done to fix that. How can we live in a world that can stock Peter Andre albums and nothing from Skunkhour?
