I had a chat with Dan of Cut Copy last week about their latest album. What Dan has been doing during the pandemic and also if he is a beach, city or country person. Also the themes that went into their new and sixth release Freeze Melt.
It was a pleasure to be able to chat with a vocalist of a Aria award winning band and Grammy nominated at that too!
To this day Cut copy are making great electronic music which started with their roots in Melbourne and have now become a world wide name and festival staple.
An act I’ve seen live 5 times before while thinking back but I’m sure I’ve probably caught a set or two as well at festivals along the way. They’ve always been great to see live and put on a insanely good show. So once this pandemic starts to calm down I’d be keen to see them live playing new material.
They’d even be a group I’d see from my car honestly if that was the first type of live music that would be happening here in Victoria.
For a world gripped by a panddemic cut copy have done pretty well to support New order and release a new album.
Check out my Interview Below
Also, put their latest album into your playlist rotation as it really is a great addition to the Cut Copy discography.
The other day I hooked up a interview with rapper Scoobie. Who I had come across through friends who sent me some links to his music. As a avid fan of rap and especially rap with a gangsta vibe I was interested and had to find out more.
So. I organized the interview and went to meet him at his pad where I got to find out more about him and his latest EP. Which I listened to in full on the way up on the train and it’s a decent release at that. Which I might add is now downloaded onto my phone and added to the ever-growing collection of great new, local and Australian releases.
I got a real Schoolboy Q vibe from the EP you can judge for yourself as you give it a listen.
He’s in the wings waiting for a chance to be something big and on his way to a solid fan base.
With hard work and dedication, this rapper will go a mile and a half.
Scoobie has an amazing view of the city from his pad where he can sit and dream of being so close to the success while looking over the CBD of Melbourne.
Check out his latest EP Drunk Broke and Almost Famous.
Today I went to the city and caught up with a band who had just gotten back from the ABC studios do an interview with me this afternoon a great pleasure it was.
I caught up with Chris and Jordan of Dregg. We chatted about live shows, Their latest EP, where their music is coming from and where it lies in the world of Metal.
It was great talking to these guys. They really are coming from a raw and pure place. Not to mention their on point with all the issues that are currently going on and able to be a voice for the people. Dregg are well on their way to doing some huge things this year so keep a lookout for them.
Their show at the Workers club with a killer lineup is FREE and on the 19th of January.
Also, Listen to their song General Butt Naked and the whole damned EP below.
It’s always great to go to a show and organize a quick interview with the person you’re seeing that night. This nights artist I chatted to the man of groove and pretty rad bass talent Donny Benét outside the Northcote social club.
We talked about shaving, the latest single, releasing his next album and when he’ll be in Melbourne town next.
Can’t watch rage because it’s daylight or during the week? It’s okay, just watch the closest thing. The digital video of his latest single Konichiwa.
A long time ago…. in a galaxy known as the milky way… There was a evil evil doer. who had extenders on his shoes. But didn’t quite know how to use them. The man’s name! Dr Collussus! Which was then pulled for a Doom Rock group to one day partake the same name.
Which I found kinda cool. I meet up with Dr. Colossus during their practice for Negative Waves Festival.
Which I mean damn.
Check this sweet as tits lineup! Sold out of cause!
Negative Waves Sweet tits lineup. I won’t bore you with going through the lineup. Because Dr Collosus will. I did manag to chat with them about how they started the band where they are going and how far they are in creating their latest album.
Long ago… In a upstairs of a pub far far away… Two band members of a obscure small band were interviewed by a man where questions were asked… Things were said. Where it was all, well, quite damn interesting!
I chatted with Jake and Rich from Drug Sweat. While Jakes girlfriend band Parsnip played on stage at the Barwon Club. We chatted away.
Was interesting to find out how the band came about and much more. Rich also plays in Ooga Boogas. While Jake also plays in Ausmutants and like a million other bands.
