You know those sayings, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ and ‘Good things take time’? Let’s assume that the same person created them. It’s safe to say that that person had never met The Grates. Recorded and produced in a week, in between managing their business, The Southside Tea Room, and preparing to have a baby, The Grates latest album, Dream Team, is a snarling punk gem that bears it’s teeth, sinks them into the listener and doesn’t let go
Ella Hooper’s debut solo album In Tongues drops today and it’s well worth the wait, for her and her fans. Hooper, who shot to fame as a teenager with her band Killing Heidi, has been busily writing, recording and touring, while maintaining a successful career as TV and radio host.
The genre Ghersi is working in could be described as hip hop, though it keels very heavily towards the experimental side of the genre and is about as different from the Australian-accented raps over sped up loops of old soul music that our country is currently at the forefront of, as chalk is from cheese
Axe Girl was formed accidentally on purpose when London native Axe was performing in a theatre piece for the local Fringe Festival and met Jebediah veterans, bassist Vanessa Thornton and drummer Brett Mitchell. Axe recalls with a hint of nostalgia: “We just hit it off, the three of us, immediately. We started writing songs straight away and then we did one show and that lead to a bunch more shows. Before we knew it we were a band that was, unquestionably, a band.”
Many would know South Australian Jordan Skinner for his racecar driving ability and nerves of steel behind the wheel, but the young man from Wallaroo has changed direction and is focussing on his other love- music! Making his mark as an independent soul-pop musician, he’s just released his catchy debut single ‘The Whole Way Through’, and it’s a fairly impressive effort to say the least. Filmed in Murray Bridge, it shows off his driving skills as well as his ability to lay down a decent track.
Legendary guitarist of iconic metal band, Rammstein, Richard. Z. Kruspe is set to release a second album with his new band Emigrate and it’s not what you’d expect.

Still going hard after 40 years of thrashing metal ballads, German band Accept have released Blind Rage as a more than brilliant follow on from Stalingrad (released 2012) and of course their 2010 comeback album Blood of The Nations. For founding guitarist Wolfgang ‘Wolf’ Hoffmann, this is just another string in his iconic Gibson Flying V guitar, and he was more than happy to speak with Glam Adelaide about the album and how the band has managed to stay around for so long
Hardcore metal fans would have been stoked to hear the news that Brisbane group Aversions Crown have not only teamed up with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, but are about to release their newest album ‘Tyrant’ on November 7th.

Humdrum Star, the debut album from Brisbane six-piece Mosman Alder is a layered affair that blends a range of sounds and influences. Sitting in the producer’s chair is Something for Kate front-man Paul Dempsey, who achieves a sense of cohesion and clarity, skilfully bringing together the many elements of the work. With twenty years of experience in the industry, it is great to see Dempsey using his talent to mentor younger musicians. And while Mosman Alder occupies a different musical space to Something for Kate, there are similarities in the contemplative tone and layered structures of the song-writing here.
