PRESS FEATURES

HARD-ONS! "Australia's most successful independent band Hard-Ons are back once again with another perplexingly brilliant new album 'Alfalfa Males …'. The Sydney rockers who have been championed by everyone from Dave Grohl, Henry Rollins, The Ramones to Red Hot Chilli Peppers have once again unleashed their psychedelic death punk/thrash/grungy/pop/metal/rock hybrid on fans across the globe and beyond." DB MAGAZINE

THE ETTES! "Their third album to date, Do You Want Power, hones in on tried and tested successful rock touchstones over its 14 tracks. Each song is beautifully constructed, the production taut like a freshly-strung guitar and finished with the sassy vocals of Gypsy lass Lindsay ‘Coco’ Hames." RIP IT UP MAGAZINE

HARD-ONS! "responsible for some of the best twisted punk and rock music to ever come out of Australia… Really, this band is criminally underrated, completely relentless and paradoxically affronting in the diversity of the music they deliver… with a vapid absence of irony or truly violent discourse in punk and metal the Hard-Ons are a unique entity now more than ever." ALBUM OF THE WEEK, TIME OFF MAGAZINE

THE ETTES! "…this is a slick recording. The sound is raw and dirty, a little rough around the edges, but in this genre being too polished would ruin the album. I find myself wanting to draw comparisons to Led Zeppelin and The Clash, the press release calls them 'Nancy Sinatra embracing '70s NYC punk' and, for such a silly sentence, it's a pretty apt description." DB MAGAZINE

HARD-ONS! 'Alfalfa Males Once Summer Is Done Conform Or Die' – Feature Album of the Week – from June 21st on PBS 106.7FM

THE ETTES! "Infectious fuzz-rock pop delivered with cool attitude from this two-thirdds girl band…. irresistibly alluring… a rock force to be reckoned with… The Ettes create the kind of music that I play in my dream band. Well at least I hope it sounds as good" Album Of The Week, HOBART ADVOCATE

THE ETTES! "They rock! Blondie in cowboy boots, drunk, looking for a fight. 14 tracks that are never too long, never boring and always testing your ability to be broad and bullish" **** MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE

SIANNA LEE! "…the songs of Sianna Lee's solo debut album are unguarded and honest. (She) has penned heartfelt tales that are sometimes hard to listen to because they're intense. 'The Mercenary In Me' and 'Behepa' show off her voice in a new, unexpected style." **** HOBART MERCURY

HARD-ONS! "Australia's best punk band continue to confound expectations… if they feel like building a wall of extreme black metal noise around a sweet pop chorus, they will, and nothing will stop them… a no-holds-barred sound orgy." **** ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

SIANNA LEE! "The album is impressive in it's honesty and emotional scope and Lee's songwriting strengths are on display for all to see… this might be one of the top Australian releases of 2010." DRUM MEDIA PERTH

THE ETTES! ALBUM OF THE WEEK "the outcome is the crispiest crust to the tastiest rock'n'roll pie you're likely to crack a blackbird from, anytime soon" TIME OFF MAGAZINE

THE ETTES! "So Say So" high rotation "Sweet 16" track on SYN

SIANNA LEE! "With a voice like velvet, what's not to love about Sianna Lee. Unique and creative, Sianna's music is intuitive and honest. Her voice is bolder stronger and refreshing, yet still graceful and elegant." BMA CANBERRA MAG

HARD-ONS! "19 tracks in one humungous snot and sarcasm-filled punk rock burritto" BLUNT MAGAZINE

SIANNA LEE! "She delivers too; the country-tinged 'Mothers & Daughters' and haunting organ-laced 'Behepa' feature two of her most arresting performances to date" BEAT MAGAZINE

SIANNA LEE! "Lyrically then, the album is pretty raw, yet melodically, it's beautiful; there's a subtle atmosphere to each of the songs that evokes a particular feeling in the listener." INPRESS MAGAZINE


THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! "From Perth via The Arctic MonKeys' house, en route to a potential rendezvous with BRMC, travel these catchy and polished lads… a solid offering from a band that has buckets of love to share, and it's safe enough to get mainstream airplay if the idiots in charge give it a spin" MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE MAGAZINE

SIANNA LEE! Sianna will be dropping into Sydney's FBi 94.5FM on Saturday 22nd May for a chat to Anna Burns at 1PM on Weekend Lunch. Sianna will be playing a live acoustic track from her Phoenix Propeller album, in support of her show at The Excelsior, Surry Hills (22nd May) ! FBi 94.5FM

SIANNA LEE! "she's free to tread gothic soundscapes (Mercenary in Me) or weathered folk melodies (It's Dark Enough to See the Stars). The survivor narrative so common to solo debuts appears ("I'm going to be all right," promises Behepa) but across the 10 tracks Lee keeps changing things up, revealing repeatedly intriguing versions of herself." THE AGE

THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! "this is all about Rock n' Roll swagger with enough hooks to put a tackle shop out of business! Good stuff." REVERB MAG

NUMBERS RADIO! "straightforward rock, progressive thrash punk, harmonised vocals and capricious intensities" DRUM MEDIA PERTH

THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! "a cracking first album… a rollicking and very promising debut" DRUM MEDIA PERTH

LAURA IMBRUGLIA! "…the singer armed with little more than an acoustic guitar and her beguiling voice… smart wordplay and honest emotion." BLUNT MAGAZINE

THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! "psychedelic breakdowns, quirky bridges and Dave Parkin’s ambitious, whizzing and whirring, production give each track a very distinct character that should give the album longevity." XPRESS MAGAZINE

LAURA IMBRUGLIA! "I continue to love this singer/songwriter writing pop rock. Overall it's because she such an unpretentious musician. She's an excellent singer… Her voice is direct, clean and melodic" THE BRAG

THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! "…there’s something sophisticated about this band that ensures they ooze a sense of superiority (and it’s not just their classy band name or the fact that their album title has the words neck tie in it). Their brand of stoner rock shines through… Vigilante Neck Tie Party is a solid first album, showing the diverse range of music this Perth quartet is capable of producing" RIP IT UP MAGAZINE

LAURA IMBRUGLIA! "there’s a lot of joy to gain when you sit down and get comfortable with this album. It’s warm and inviting, and Imbruglia draws you in with her narratives about growing up (‘You’re a Parasitic Germ’), dating (‘Older Men’) and the twisted side of love (‘When It All Falls Apart’). The Lighter Side Of… is a journey after all, and an endearing one at that." MESS+NOISE

THE SCOTCH OF SAINT JAMES! Tune into Triple J this Saturday 24th April, (Afternoon show) as Lewi McKirdy will be chatting to Paver from the band, about the release of their debut album "Vigilante Nick Tie Party". Tour dates coming in May! TRIPLE J

LAURA IMBRUGLIA! "…a songwriter and performer of rare honesty and decorum, one not afraid of putting her heart and soul on the line for our scrutiny and enjoyment. The album’s simple arrangements and sparse instrumentation (acoustic guitar being the dominant paradigm) gives this side of her craft room to breathe, and it’s her pain-ridden but stoic narratives which ultimately make this album so special."
