Tim Neve Reader Find

By Tim Neve in New Products on Thursday 26 August 2010

Plenty of fashion-PR-spam floods my inbox as we transcend into a new wardrobe season, but this week one Look Book caught my eye. New kid on the block streetwear label, One Hundred, launched this week in Brisbane with the mantra that the humble t-shirt should become an individualistic canvas.

By Andy in Cool Websites on Thursday 1 July 2010

Karl Kwasny, also known as Monaux, has just embarked on a rather ambitious digital art book project – he’ll be publishing one illustration per week for two years.

Forget everything you know about death metal. Forget there’s even a genre called death metal. Brisbane-based quintet Portal just made it completely irrelevant with their latest album, Swarth. Their avalanche of muddy, raspy, blown-out noise sounds like a thousand Roman torture devices used at once in a cave during an earthquake — sawing, crunching, growling, […]

Ange Takats

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 1 October 2009

I love the subtle acoustic finger-picking which weaves delicately into the wistful storytelling lyrics on the track, Brown Shoes, by Australian songwriter Ange Takats. In the tradition of local female-fronted acts such as Blanche DuBois and New Buffalo, Takats creates a sparse instrumental base, the repetitive guitar motif providing the perfect accompaniment to her elegant and timeless vocals. The artwork for her album — Aniseed Tea — on which this track appears is equally as impressive, the work of Brisbane artist, Danielle O’Brien.

By Casper Johansson in New Events on Tuesday 22 September 2009

An event where seventeen audience members sleep while a sound artist mixes music for their snoozes? It could only happen in Australia, right? And it is happening. At the Basement, Metro Arts, in Brisbane between September 23 and 26. Sleep While You Snooze should be an event where you can do anything but.

One Last Ounce experimental fashion project

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Fashion on Thursday 15 January 2009

One Last Ounce is an experimental project exploring surreal imagery on an abstract cut. Says designer Jake Jelicich on his creative rationale: ‘I wanted to make thin, unique, comfortable tees that flowed and moved with the night. And I wanted the art to be dark, but sarcastic, mystical and inspiring, all in the same glance. These shirts are about long nights with good friends, being spontaneous, and letting the street lights guide you home’.

Wow! So whilst Australia is quickly becoming known for its Ed Banger-styled modular stream of music, there is a little known Brisbane artist called Yeo Choong who is just insanely talented. His music is full of summer fun and Kanye West-Phoenix influences. Take my word on it, this is going to be Australia’s next answer […]
