Goodnightmare // Fake Fake Are An Absolute Dream

Goodnightmare // Fake Fake Are An Absolute Dream

Hello friends. Welcome to another distastefully late post from ya girl. However, this one has me genuinely excited, so hopefully that somewhat makes up for it?

Today I’m gonna take some time to introduce you to a dynamic duo if I’ve ever heard one, Fake Fake, comprised of  Justin and Leith from Canada. The boys found their way into my email inbox, and as per usual, I was keen to have a listen to their new single, Goodnightmare.

Friends. Friends. So happily surprised. By this point you all know there are very few things that get me hyped like a really tasty bass line paired with some smooth vocals. Fake Fake deliver both, and I’ve been listening to their debut single over and over again since first hearing it.

FAKE FAKE - Promo2

Justin, who lends his as previously mentioned, smooth as heck vocals to the track, shared with me what the song is all about.

“‘Goodnightmare’ is an ode to the friendships and romances where you find yourself deeply relying on someone else. How that dependency is a freeing and also paralysing place to find yourself in. There are some very personal elements to it, but also a wider commentary on that idea of dependency. Lines like “talk me out of all these bad cliches” and “all of us need a crutch for a lover” really speak to that.”

It’s also entirely self-produced by Leith, who’s the production mastermind behind this machine, and Justin explains why.

“The track was produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Leith (producer & instrumentalist) with the two of us collaborating on aspects of that process. We had talked about outsourcing parts of the mixing and mastering process but when it came time, it felt right to self produce and have our debut single really reflect ourselves as a duo and our personal stake in creating this track. We also self-produced the visuals for ‘Goodnightmare’.”

“What are the visuals?” I hear you ask? Have a look for yourself.

Super different, not like anything I’ve ever seen before, but I love it. There’s nothing too fancy, it’s pretty simple, but I genuinely think it’s one of the coolest things ever. It suits the song perfectly.

Like I mentioned, there’s so much in this song sonically, that I think makes it such a winner for me. The bass line really drives the song along, but Justin’s voice is such a great contrast to it, plus there’s that funky guitar riff that pops up here and there within the verses. And the chorus. Ooft. Plus, the lyrics?

It’s such a groovy conveyance of such a universal message that Justin sings about, one that literally anyone can relate to either already or in the future.

“I think that feeling of being in love with and also terrified of dependency really comes across in the lyrics, but more importantly in the music and production as well.”

He’s not wrong. There’s so many different dynamics within this song, it vamps and vamps continuously, even using the chorus as a build -up within the bridge to lead into the final hook. I think it’s a really smartly produced and structure one.

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

This tune is genuinely one I wish everyone was hearing on the radio. I definitely can’t wait to see how Justin and Leith will pull it off live…

You can listen to Goodnightmare on Spotify and SoundCloud, and you can follow Fake Fake on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

G Flip // Live

G Flip // Live

Hello hello hello!! Welcome back, hopefully it hasn’t been too long.

Today’s post is yet another concert review and wrap-up.

Quite a little while ago, I shared two posts in particular; Kick Ass Females and Australian Music from Australian Artists. Both these posts featured one of the most prominent up-and-coming artists (in my opinion) at the moment, G Flip. She’s actually quite local to the area I live in, a bunch of people know her around here, and she’s become a bit of a hero.

If you’re not entirely sure who I’m talking about, G Flip is a kick-ass, 5-foot-something drummer (thought humbly also a multi-instrumentalist) and singer who’s first released single, About You kicked off on Triple J Unearthed a mere four hours after it was uploaded. Since then her trajectory has been on a steady incline and she returned to Melbourne for two shows at The Corner Hotel.

I invited my close friend and drummer James to join me for the gig, and we were both super excited for what we were sure was to be a great show.

We got inside the venue about ten or so minutes before G Flip came out and revelled at how packed it was. Her sold-out show just about filled the venue, and everyone was super eager for the set to begin.

When she finally came out, the crowd lost it.

img_4866.jpg

If there’s one thing I noticed throughout the show, was that although the lead singer, supported by a two-man band on stage, whenever she stepped behind the drums, her singing wasn’t impacted in the slightest, and vice-verse. She was able to walk the line of each instrument and performance perfectly, delivering a high-intensity show that had everyone screaming and singing along.

G Flip performed a bunch of her well know songs, About YouKilling My Time (personal favourite) and Bring Me Home, as well as newer releases like I Am Not Afraid and Drink Too Much which genuinely blew the lid of the place, as well as a handful of unreleased songs and one of the best covers of Proud Mary I have ever got the privilege of hearing live.

Stupid was an unreleased track I’m super excited about. It was a great song, a bit of tongue-in-cheek story-telling that hooked us all from the get go and unlike other artists I’ve watched live, I loved that G Flip actually took the time to explain some of her songs before performing them, giving us all some context and inviting her inside her a head little bit.

Drink Too Much was definitely a highlight for me. It was also clearly a crowd favourite. G Flip had a bit of a synchronised dance with her band mate and really played up to how cheeky and playful she is on stage, and the audience loved every moment of it.

As we left the gig, James mentioned something that really stuck with me and I agree with 100%. One of the best things about the show was how authentic and real G Flip was throughout the entire time. She allowed her personality to come through, she took moments in between songs to banter with the audience and let us into her life a little bit.

She shared stories about how her dad used to work at The Corner, how many artists she had lined up to see at the venue and how insane it was that she was now selling it out. She also delivered a very convincing argument for the support of Malteser gift-boxes, a few of which she threw out at the audience at the end of the show.

It was genuinely like watching a friend up on stage, joking around with everyone in the audience, doing a little jig in unison with her guitarist and laughing as she saw the crowd’s reactions to some of the tricks she pulled out of her bag.

img_4865.jpg

It was a very humble performance, authentic like I mentioned before and not in the slightest bit contrived or pretentious. It was a really great gig and I’m so glad I got to finally catch G Flip live.

Matt Corby // Live

Matt Corby // Live

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow.

Hello friends. Boy do I have a blog post for you. Albeit, incredibly, incredibly overdue, but exciting nonetheless.

On the 12th of April, I finally got to see Matt Corby live. If you’ve been here for a little while, you know that I could go on, and on and on about Matt Corby and the insane amount of talent in that one person.

Due to the absolute shambles that was Melbourne public transport during the weeks before and around the day of the concert, my friend James and I met on the train, which took us a few stations forward, before boarding a replacement bus for about 40 minutes into the city.

Once we were there, we scouted a place for dinner, settling on The Duke, a popular restaurant, rooftop wine bar and pub opposite Federation Square, and spent the forty-five minutes before the concert talking and preparing for the man himself.

Following dinner, we made our way to Margaret Court Arena, only a fifteen minute walk from The Duke, and with a quick pit stop at the arena bar, were down in the mosh pit a few minutes later.

Matt’s set was electrifying, though at the same time it was one of the most serene performances I’ve ever seen. Whether that’s down to the nature of his songs and how authentically raw they all come across, or the overall presence he has while on stage, I don’t know, all I do know is that I spent majority of the concert just standing there staring at him in total awe, with James periodically checking in with my to see if I was okay.

I wasn’t.

IMG_3331

He played some of the fan favourites quite early, like one of his recent releases No Ordinary Life, All Fired Up, Sooth Lady Wine and Brother, and I was pleasantly shocked and surprised when he played Monday one of my absolute favourite songs from Corby.

One thing that struck was, despite how packed the mosh pit was, it wasn’t a rough, pushy crowd of people. Everyone was content with listening to his voice, the amazing band and backing vocals he had behind him, and catching a glimpse of him every now and then when you opened your eyes.

He moved around the stage pretty unassumingly. He was the epitome of humility, and I think that only really served to draw us all in even more.

Empires Attraction, Resolution and Souls A’Fire were the perfect songs to ‘wrap up’ the show, and it really kept the energy levels on a steady incline throughout the entire set.

The final encore song was a tune everyone had been holding out for, one of his most popular songs from his latest album, Miracle Love.

IMG_3319

The song was so atmospheric and Matt controlled the audience like a conductor in an orchestra pit. There was a moment where he instructed all of us on what to sing, a percussive yet hauntingly beautiful line, ‘bring back that miracle love‘ and he ad-libbed over us.

There’s something incredibly guttural yet at the same time gentle and hypnotic about his voice. He has this great ability to switch between being really tender and soft but then completely ramp up to sing with all his power behind it. It’s one of my favourite things about Matt, and the songs he writes partner with his voice perfectly.

It was a really great concert. I have to be unbiased and admit that Matt isn’t entirely in my top five artists, or maybe even my top ten, but I knew passing up the opportunity to see him live was probably one I’d grow to regret, and I’m so glad I go to see him.

IMG_3326

If you ever get the chance to see him live, I highly recommend you do so. It’s an amazing mixture of complete humility partnered with an insane amount of talent that makes it a show worth watching.

April Tunes

April Tunes

Hello friends! We’re in the fifth month of the year, and albeit a scary as heck thought, it also means I get to share some tunes from April!! April was a stellar month for music for me personally and I got a taste of some incredible music this month. I’ve begun relying quite a bit on my 365//2019 playlist on Spotify to write these posts, so if you’d like a pretty accurate summary of what I’ve been listening to over the last few months, check it out and follow me on Spotify!

Here’s what I was listening to and loving in April!

Bad Guy – Billie Eilish: Surely this doesn’t need an explanation. I mean if you want one, I have a whole post dedicated to Billie’s album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO which you can read HERE, but this song is still my favourite from the record. I think a lot of people share the love as well, I’ve been hearing this song everywhere ever since it was released, and I obviously have zero problem with that.

Stay Lost (Cabu Remix) – Joe Hertz, Amber-Simone, Cabu: I can’t recall how I stumbled across this song, but I’ve been in love with it for the entire month and I don’t see myself tiring of it anytime soon. Amber-Simone has one of the smoothest voices I’ve heard and while there’s quite a fair bit of manipulation going on within the remix, Cabu hasn’t messed with her vocals too much and I’m in love. I only recently just looked into the original and it’s the grooviest thing I’ve ever heard so I’m having a hard time choosing which one I love more.

Part The Seas – Cody Simpson: I’m still on a Cody Simpson bender friends. This time, Part The Seas has been the go-to. This song really meets all my blues and guitar solo needs, and I’m always thoroughly satisfied whenever I listen to this song. His vocals are really rough and husky which suits the style of the song as well, but nothing beats the guitar in this song for me personally.

Pure Water – Mustard, Migos: Dude I don’t know, sometimes you just need a little bit of Migos to get you ready to face the day, you know? This song hits different though. I don’t know what it was, but that intro literally has me grooving in my seat every time I listen to it.

Euphemism – Tash, JON VINYL: Another great song from Tash, this time a collaboration with Canadian singer Jon Vinyl, who keeps up and compliments her smooth vocals perfectly. Their voices blend really went in this song, and while there isn’t a huge amount of production going on, this song is a favourite for this month.

xanny – Billie Eilish: Another from Billie’s album, surely we all saw this coming? It took me a little longer to get around this song, but once I did I was all in and this song has been a constant go to this month. It’s the bass, man.

Nunya – Kehlani: Ahhh, had to include a tune from the queen this month. Her mixtape is the gift that keeps on giving and this month, Nunya was the pick for me. The chorus is one of the catchiest on the record in my opinion, and it’s forever getting stuck in my head, not that I’m complaining.

Goodbye Kisses – Joe Hertz, Pip Millett: It was purely coincidence that my friend who plays bass in our band recommended I listen to this song, and halfway through the song I realised Joe Hertz was the same Joe Hertz from Stay Lost which I spoke about earlier. Coincidentally I had also just watched Pip Millet’s COLORS video on YouTube, so everything kinda weirdly aligned. This song is extra groovy, definitely recommend you give it a listen.

Monday – Matt Corby: Matt. Matt, Matt, Matt. I promise there’s a concert review coming soon, but honestly, seeing Matt Corby in the flesh, hearing his voice live, was so much better than listening to any studio recording on Spotify or watching any video on YouTube. The man was so magical and transcendent, it was a truly beautiful concert, and I was shocked to my core when he started singing this song because I didn’t expect it at all.

Therapy – I.M the artist: Well, well, well. Our very own Isabel released her first single!! I’m not lying when I say I’m so close to having the words memorised because of how often I’ve listened to this song and it was literally released a few weeks ago! It’s such a beautiful song and I love Isabel’s voice. I promise, one listen and the chorus will be stuck in your head.

Mixer – Amber Mark: I’ve really been enjoying Amber Mark, and this song is no exception. I had a listen to it at the start of the month and I’ve been in love with it since then. It’s super groovy and her voice is really strong and dynamic in this song. A great song to dance along to.

Overload – John Legend, Miguel: What do you get when you combine John Legend and Miguel? And overflowing deliverance of smooth, smooth magic. The combination of these two powerhouses, the beautiful guitar tone and switch up between the two singers creates one of the tastiest songs I’ve come across in ages. If you look up the word ‘smooth’ in the dictionary it’s just a Spotify link to this song.

I Couldn’t Be More In Love – The 1975: This is one of the most beautiful songs ever. I’m still caught up on Mine, but if I had to choose another song that has been trying not to sappy-cry, it’s this one. It reminds me of the music from an old 80’s rom-com but in the best possible way. Also, Matty’s voice in the chorus?? Insanity.

Unaware – Allen Stone: Okay. Ok.ay. Listen up. If there’s one thing you do after reading this post, make sure it’s listening to Allen Stone. I’ve been listening to him since around 2015/2016, but I finally got to see mans live at BluesFest. And when I say ‘see him live’, I mean I made a point to go to all three of his sets over the five-day festival. This song was the song that stuck with me and my sister who I dragged along with me each time, and we spent the rest of the day walking around the festival singing this tune.

Someone New – Hozier: Another absolute transcendent being who I got the privilege of seeing at BluesFest. I completely ditched my family and let myself get absorbed into the middle of the giant tent he completely filled out, and it was one of the best sets I got to see over the weekend. I’m convinced he’s not actually human, rather just a mythical creature here to bless us all.

Upside – Allen Stone: This is my sister’s favourite song from Allen, and for good reason. It’s so groovy. His stage performance was one of the best of the festivals in my personal opinion. He danced, jumped, span around, ran around the stage and genuinely gave such a wholesome performance you couldn’t help but love him.

Taste Of You – Allen Stone: By the third set of Allen’s that I watched, I had zero shame in wiggling my way to the front of the mosh pits and right into the thick of it, where all the dancing was going on. I was also lucky enough to have absolute legends around me, and it seemed that all of Allen’s mosh pits were filled with people just looking to have a good time. This song was a crowd favourite and I don’t think there were many people standing still during this tune.

 

But yes! Those are the tunes I was absolutely loving this month, fingers crossed May is just as good. Let me know if you had a listen and enjoyed any of these songs in the comments! As always, these songs are pulled from my yearly playlist, 365//2019, where I compile a song for every day of the year. You can have a listen HERE.

Courtesy Of: The Empty Threats

Courtesy Of: The Empty Threats

Hello hello hello!

It’s been a bit of a hot minute since I’ve shared a post here, but I promise, I can explain. University for some reason decided to actually test me a little, and I’ve been bombarded with assignments I didn’t even know I actually had. As well as university, I’m well into completing my 80 hours of work placement every Wednesday, which I am loving, however it does mean that the one free day of the week that I previously had is filled.

On a super excited note, I also came back from BluesFest on the 23rd of April, having spent close to a week in sunny Byron Bay, NSW for the music festival, so you can definitely expect a post about that coming soon.

However, this is a Courtesy Of post, one of my favourites to share with you all, so it’s time to introduce our guests!!

Today’s playlist is Courtesy Of Adelaide four-piece, The Empty Threats, an experimental rock band. The band released their debut EP ‘Ablutions’ back in March, and wrapped up the last of two tour dates this month!

1VDbG03M

The Empty Threats were lovely enough to send me their top ten favourite songs at the moment, as well as why they love them! So for once, you guys get a chance to hear it straight from the artist themselves!

Pond – Giant Tortoise: We love the way this song changes direction so rapidly, the hard hitting chorus and the washy verse fold together so perfectly. That chorus really gets us going.

Boogarins – Tempo: We couldn’t miss out our favorite Brazilian Psych-Rock boys. The way this song holds you right in its hand throughout the dramatic pauses and psychedelic explosions is full on, we love playing our interpretation of this song at shows on occasion.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – Marmalade March: This hefty Perth-based outfit is a great example of what modern Psych-Rock is. delay effects falling perfectly in place, guitar tones moulding together like they’ve been brought up in the same household, and a driving and washy drum performance to take it up a notch while
holding it all together.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard – Hot Water: We can’t go past King Gizz, three guitars taking off in different directions paired nicely with a sit back drum beat and a consistent drone from the bass. Not to mention the flute. never forget the woodwind.

Joy Division – Atmosphere: This is one for our singer, the instruments sit exactly where they need to in this one by Joy Division. The raw feel of the vocals is everything it needs to be, not overshadowed by any other part, but taking control and taking you on a ride.

The Drones – To Think I Once Loved You: This song is probably something that is more of a reference for the darker moments in our EP. It’s another example of how the vocal performance drives the whole song, the huge impact of the lead vocal is only backed up by the rest of the band, it never gets lost.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Anemone: The honesty of this song is really something that we love, there’s not a huge amount of processing and you can feel how organic the performances are. The guitar part isn’t perfect, but it creates a dynamic exactly as it should.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre – Fingertips: We had to put two songs in from these guys, the honesty and the overall organic feeling is second to none. We love the way that the dynamics of this song are so heavily implicated by such small percussion parts, like the tambourine and the shaker. We try and use a bit of extra percussion here and there in our recordings, mostly through the desire to be like these guys.

Tame Impala – Apocalypse Dreams: This song has a way of keeping us coming back, even after years of having this album on repeat in my car. The overall production and ambition of the track is completely reflective of what we love about Tame Impala.

Melody’s Echo Chamber – I Follow You: We love the soft vocal and the way rest of the instruments feel as though they follow the vocal throughout this song. This song really is the perfect way to settle in, Melody gently walks you into each chorus with an incredible sense of harmony.

So there you have it! I had a great time listening to the songs The Empty Threats shared, such a diverse but cohesive collection of tunes. Let me know if you love any of these songs in the comments below!

VBd8tX98

Make sure you have a listen ‘Ablutions‘ which I’ve linked for you to make it all the more easier! I’m still struggling to pick between Magnolia and Loss of Breath as a top favourite from the four tracks,  but you can make a decision for yourselves! If you like what you hear, make sure you check them out on Instagram, BandCamp and Facebook.

Hey Billie Eilish … Calm Down Please x

Hey Billie Eilish … Calm Down Please x

So we’ve had some time to marinate in the absolute sauce that is WHEN WE ALL FOR ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and I feel like I can confidently say we’re all just basking in how amazing it is?

Like Billie said she’d deliver, and she came through. Sorry, Billie and Finneas came through and delivered one of the most streamed albums of the year so far. Literally, nearly every single song on that album was charting the week it was released.

Screen Shot 2019-04-05 at 10.33.33 pm.png

The fact that !!!!!!! (boy you do not know how hard it was counting those exclamation points) is only 13 seconds long? Love that. Love it. It confused me at first, but now I can basically quote the 13 second Invisalign monologue by heart. And I love how it just jumps straight into bad guy, which is one of my favourite songs off the entire album.

This song had me hooked from the second it started. It had my jaw on the floor and my head bopping up and down the entire time. It’s such a bop but it’s an intricate bop. There’s so many layers to this song, especially vocally, and all of it combines to create this really unique sound that I haven’t really heard before, which is what I think contributes to how much this album exploded.

xanny is another one of my favourites. I kinda overlooked it at first, but one of my friends mentioned that it was her favourite of the album, so I returned to it and now I’m loving it so much. Every time I listen to it I pick up on something new in the lyrics to be amazed at. I can imagine this absolutely blowing the lid of a stadium when she takes this on tour. She better.

Screen Shot 2019-04-05 at 10.38.14 pm.png

you should see me in a crown doesn’t even need a bit. A banger. A bop. A hard, hitting, slap.

all the good girls go to hell is another song I kinda shamefully overlooked, cos I felt like I’d heard it before. The piano really threw me off for some stupid reason, but it literally only took one more listen for me to restore my senses. Her vocals in this song are so clean and crisp.

wish you were gay is a great song. Not my favourite, but it’s definitely not a bad song by any means. I love the backing vocals in this song and the nursery rhyme kinda of vibe they have, especially during the verses. The chorus is also one I can imagine going off during an arena tour.

when the party’s over makes me emo. I don’t know what it is about this album, but again, I didn’t really grasp the emotion or the intent behind the song until a second listen. I think it was because I was so caught up in listening to her vocal performance and the production when I first listened to it, that I never really took in the lyrics, which for me are the best part of the entire song. They’re so beautiful and vulnerable and I love how open it is.

I really like 8. It’s so simple and sweet but it’s such a sad song. The vocal mixing and the production is so perfect and it works really well with the lyrics.

my strange addiction made me scream, purely hearing The Office being sampled throughout it. It’s got a really groovy synth bass line that’s super bouncy and I can definitely get around it. The melody in the chorus is also insanely catchy, and this song was stuck in my head hours after listening to the album.

Obviously you then have bury friend which kinda kicked the whole aesthetic of the album into second gear. I think the more and more I listen to the album, the more I’ll be able to bring some of the other songs up to this level. At the moment this song and bad guy are so far up on my favourites list, it’s not even funny, it’s kinda disrespectful.

ilomilo is an interesting one. Probably my least favourite song out of the album. Again, not a bad song at all, it just doesn’t stick in my mind as distinctly as the other songs do.

listen before i go nearly made me cry when I first heard it. The first line is so ridiculously sad, and it’s hard to fathom that someone so young could pen these type of lyrics. I desperately want to do a cover of this song.

 

Screen Shot 2019-04-05 at 10.53.19 pm.png

Another tear-jerker. i love you is another beautiful song, but one of my favourite parts is undeniably how distinct Finneas’ voice is in it. Their voices gel and blend so well together and this song is a great example of it.

goodbye gave me shivers the first time I heard the vocal harmonies. Such a fitting song for the last track of the album. I love how she managed to weave the rest of the songs from the album into the final song, I got major Jon Bellion, Hand Of God – Outro vibes from it because he does it in that song as well. It’s something I’ve always admired and I love when artists mesh their songs into one another. She’s done it before when she references Ocean Eyes, one of her first songs, in you should see me in a crown so goodbye just seems like the perfect way to wrap up the album.


 

So that’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO.

But I’m not done. I think one of the most crucial parts, one of the biggest assets to the entire album, one of the reasons the album is as good as it is, is Finneas. If you aren’t aware of Finneas, Billie’s older brother, he’s the other half of the team that’s really built this artist and all these songs from the ground up. I probably can’t really do Finneas justice or explain his process or his thoughts, so I highly recommend watching the video below. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the album. Let me know in the comments below!
