Misery loves company... Almost as much as we loved Amity's epic gig in Sydney last night.
Carlos Santana has such a way with words that interviewing him left us stuttering in awe. But if there’s one thing he’s more adept at than speaking, it’s working the fretboard of his guitar. A certified maniac creating bright, colourful solos that cut through the mix like a hot knife through butter, when Matt Doria gets the Mexican mind-melter on the phone, he’s treated to the best of both worlds.
Halcro is a company reborn. We interview Mike Kirkham and Dr. Peter Foster who, along with Lance Hewitt, are the new owners of this famous brand, and the trio responsible for the birth of the Eclipse.
In the year 2019, anything is possible. Case in point: Northlane’s new full-length, Alien. The genre-bending Sydneysiders have embraced the bass drop with open arms on LP5 – yet at the same time, this may just be their heaviest offering yet.
Weird and wonderful as they’ve ever been, the Pixies throw us through yet another loop with Beneath The Eyrie: an album that peers back on the past 30 years of their reign over alt-rock with fondness, and to the future with a blinding fervour.
Gearing up for some of their biggest shows in almost a decade, Grinspoon are back and full of more beans than ever. Before the Chemical Hearts tour rolls through Australia, Matt Doria caught up with frontman Phil Jamieson to vibe on nostalgia, guitars, and the (possible) future of the Lismore legends.
Distinctly raw, honest and powerfully blunt, Melbourne trailblazer Angie McMahon shoots for the heart with her deceptively lowkey debut album. 
They may be nearing their second decade on the scene, but on Widow’s Weeds, the Californian alt-rock crushers in Silversun Pickups wield a sound as youthful as it is punchy.
Forget thinking outside the box – with their third rollercoaster ride of an album, Holy Holy have torn the box to shreds, doused those shreds in gasoline and tossed them onto the ultimate bonfire. Aided by guitarist Oscar Dawson, Sarah Comey attempts to make sense of the ashes.
Interview with Craig and Christina Milne, the owners of Wilson Benesch, which accompanied our review of the Precision P1.0 loudspeaker in Audio Esoterica magazine, issue 2019-#2 shortly after the UK company celebrated its 30th anniversary. We began by asking about the company’s beginnings and development.
