Can you name these rock bands by their literal graphics?

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Design on Tuesday 6 May 2014

It’s time to get literal! Spanish graphic design studio Tata&Friends illustrated these minimalist and extremely literal posters to represent rock bands. See if you can name them all just by the simple drawings. There’s a radio on a man’s head (Radiohead), a leaf and a calendar (Green Day), a collection of doors (The Doors), and […]

One of the things on my bucket list was to see a gig at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. Earlier this month I was able to tick this off my list with the help of Scottish indie rock quartet Django Django. It’s only fitting as their album was one of my favourite albums of 2012. […]

Add N to (x): music by Buckminster Fuller

The History of Apple Pie Reader Find

By The History of Apple Pie in New Music on Thursday 22 November 2012

Add N to (x) – Avant Hard. This record is kind of like if punk was made with synths, except it doesn’t really sound like punk. All of their records are great, but this one just totally kills it. It’s worth checking out their video for Plug Me In, as well – it’s pretty much the definition of NSFW [watch below]. They split up about 10 years ago and I feel like they left a big gap in music that has yet to be filled.

I can say with an unwavering amount of conviction that kaleidoscopes are the greatest things ever invented. Well, one of them at least. Brisbane band, The John Steel Singers, take that statement and turn it into a super cool video for their song, Rainbow Kraut. I think Oliver Sacks would agree: phantom hands should always […]

By Huna Amweero in New Music on Thursday 18 September 2008

Last week when the 2008 ARIA nominations were released, I was so happy to see the recognition of Melbourne’s Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Their album Primary Colours is pure, unadulterated Aussie rock, standing out from the numerous electro releases we’ve had this year. The band manages to capture that wonderful pub-vibe without any pretension or […]
