Life is Better Blonde has just collaborated with director Natalie James to produce a brand new video, Follow Me. This bewitching track has an equally masterful video to go along with it, which was filmed in the beautiful Macedon ranged of Victoria.
Italian guitarist Nicola Pavan has created an incredible instrument everyone wants to get their hands on. Apart from the neck, electronics and hardware, this guitar is made of nothing but Lego blocks!
Kurt Cobain fans, you’re in for a big treat! Come November 20, you can get your hands on a seven-inch release of Kurt Cobain’s raw cover of the Beatles’ And I Love Her.
Created as an urban design experiment, The Sound of Emotion is a tech-infused sculptural work that allows four people to create music, driven solely by the expressions on their face.
Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando uses LED lights to visualize the movements of musicians, showing us that their motion is as equally beautiful and mesmerizing as their music.
I have to admit, the tunes these three sisters make are my pleasure (notice I didn’t say “guilty”). In fact, I’m proud to say that I’m falling, falling, falling in love with this band. Check out their cover of Hazy Shade of Winter here.
Github for musicians … that’s how I would describe Blend. Music creation today often includes messy email threads and quirky hacks by the industry’s most determined. And though music creators are so passionate about collaborating, sharing and distributing their work, there isn’t really a Beta community for them to share it in. The purpose of […]
A friend of mine introduced me to Ghost Loft and I got hooked immediately. The soft electric sounds and beautiful beats are mesmerizing and irresistible. It’s the perfect music to make artwork to.
I met Kirkis about a year ago through mutual friends, and we got talking a bit at the café he was working at. At some point he casually mentioned that I should come along to one of his gigs. I didn’t realize he made music, and as every other kid in Melbourne seems to be […]
It’s been four years since Blue Roses (aka Laura Groves) first enchanted us with her eponymous self-titled debut album. She’s been quiet in the last couple years but finally came back as main vocalist for London-based collaborative band Nautic (with producer Bullion and Young Turks labelmate Tic) at the end of last year.
I had the pleasure to befriend English singer-songwriter Alessi’s Ark when I was in London last summer. At age 23, she has already released three LPs. Her latest, The Still Life, came out via Bella Union this April. While her floating voice is intact, she has successfully broadened her sound with ethnic instruments and contemporary […]

Each wheel its connected to a carillon, and when it turns, the carillon starts playing its musical note. The great number of carillons and the random actions of the live mice makes the […]
I’ve been a fan of Ben Mason for a long while now. I discovered his music via MySpace a few years back and I remember that his tunes were on the top of my heavy rotation list. Why he wasn’t more famous back then I don’t know: his songwriting is timeless, heavily influenced by the sixties and seventies with a soothing voice and moving lyrics.
