Interview: M.A.N.D.Y



































I talk to Philipp Jung about an LP that never surfaced and a label that’s going back to its roots. Interview here.

Interview: James Barnsley

Leeds DJ and producer James Barnsely found music when he was merely 12. It was an elder brother’s friend that introduced him to a world that would one day become his own. He doesn’t feed the on-stage antic clich├ęs, but instead all his energies are focused on the turntables in front of him.

Yolke

A couple of weeks ago it was gig night at Melbourne's The Evelyn, curated by Fallopian Tunes. They're a Melbourne musical collective of the more experimental, electronica side. Even the organisers are in a band!
Introducing Yolke, it's a quartet of live instrumental; it's one hell of a hollistic ride.

Check YOLKE here.

An honourable mention goes to: Document Swell, it's a melange of samples and wind instruments.

Yolke will be playing at the Old Bar in Fitzroy on 1 Sep! Don't miss it. X

My photo
I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
