We love the lush, sample heavy sound of Bonobo, aka Simon Green (yes, we prefer Bonobo too), a pioneering UK producer renowned for his downbeat electronica. From his debut release, Terrapin, on the Tru Thoughts compilation When Shapes Join Together, right through to his most recent Ninja Tunes album, The North Borders, Bonobo’s lushly orchestrated productions are invariably complex and deeply melodic.
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 […]
Sydney-based design agency Frost* has collaborated with city officials to create a graphic outdoor campaign promoting better bike riding behavior and etiquette. To help promote this change, Frost* came up with a beautiful, well-designed set of posters that tell riders to ring their bell when passing, stop at the red light, and share common paths with care.
It’s a beautiful summer’s day in Sydney. Ah, we can practically feel it right now. A phone booth is mysteriously placed on iconic Bondi Beach. Confused? So were bystanders. See what happens when they were invited to answer a ringing phone. Remarkable stories, best decisions and the first steps towards life-changing events. Share your own […]
Ever dream about doing something absolutely ridiculous at a sacred ancient monument? No? Me neither. But my spidey senses tell me that January 2014 holds this possibility in the future of Sydney-siders both young and young at heart. Sacrilege is Stonehenge re-imagined as a life-size inflatable castle. Gone are the days of clutching at your […]
Imagine being stuck in the beautiful (ha) industrial area of Alexandria on an early weekend morning having not yet had breakfast. I bet you’re feeling pretty miserable right now. I was too, until, like an oasis in the desert, I stumbled upon The Grounds. What is The Grounds, I hear you say? Well, it may […]
The tragic pig-napping of Kevin Bacon and his farm buddy, Bradley the Lamb, made international headlines after their family at the Grounds of Alexandria in Sydney sounded the alarm. Facebook was all abuzz with the news and local Aussies took the hunt for the missing swine to the streets. But after further investigation, some question whether the […]
Taking out the top spot as my favourite festival experience of 2012, I was more then excited to be returning to the Factory Theatre for OutsideIn 2013. There’s something about the underground electronic music scene that gets my heart racing – the bass, the amazing visuals, that feeling of being part of something truly special.
Sydney-based artist Lexi Land is known to be as mysterious as she is revealing; creating amazing works of art that dabble in the strange and dark. Ahead of her new exhibition ILLUMINATING DARKNESS ‘Dissected Dreamscapes of a Lunartic’, we sat down with Land to discover what makes her tick. The answer? Whisky and porn, of […]
I recently stayed at the Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa. If you picture sheer luxury intertwined with rugged Australian bush, that is what’s on offer. Here’s the inside view on this quite remarkable resort.
Jai Pyne spent a good seven years as frontman of (arguably) one of Australia’s best indie bands – The Paper Scissors. Now that band is done and dusted, he’s allowing another passion to shine through. We caught up with Jai to talk all about his newish Sydney cafe Fleetwood Macchiato, located in inner-city Erskineville, and his love affair with everyone’s favourite pick me up.
No matter what time of the day, a good burger is a good burger. We are firm believers in this and it is with no shame that we confess to having eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner at Charlie & Co Burgers in Sydney. It’s a magical place where chili, beef, chicken, bacon, cheese and tasty […]
