This is weird, but I like it. That fries-dipped-in-milkshake sound.

Good call, that link works for me. Excellent, excellent track. I did a quick check to see if it was on Youtube by searching 'penetrating eye', a life tip: DO NOT DO THIS!! Blechh.

I didn't get any of the specials but I did pick up one each from Eat Skull, Lost Animal and New War. Three very great doing-the-dishes records that's for sure.

I saw them in early 2012 and Hook wasn't there. He's been announced as a solo support for the Happy Mondays tour here in a few months; I don't think he's playing with New Order.

Mess + Noise have an awesome feature on Australian guitarist/weirdo Kirin J Callinan that flicks between the recording of his upcoming debut album and his infamous Sugar Mountain set earlier this year: http://www.messandnoise.com/articles/4568052

Downvotes are the brussel sprouts of the internet. Eat 'em up and don't complain or there's no dessert for you mister.

I don't like their reviews either, but I think they stay away from the musical content because this is 2013 and the album is almost definitely streaming somewhere on the internet. If you want to know what it sounds like you can just go and listen to it.

Festivals here in Australia hit some kind of critical mass in the late 00's where they suddenly became insanely popular, selling out in seconds. One or two years later the same thing started happening to Coachella and Lollapalooza and it seemed to take everyone in the US by surprise too. I still head along because down here it's usually the only way to see most of the bands on the lineup until next time they tour, 2 or three years later. I've also been to Lolla in the US which felt like an Australian festival only bigger and with more drugs, and Roskilde in Denmark which was a different beast entirely. They book that one full of headliners and buzz bands too, but also a heap of arty, off-trend genres and and out there music. It's the only time I've found a major festival to be really exciting, and all the others seem like they are going through the motions by comparison. A major festival could be amazing if it's well curated and unique. Instead, everyone books variations on the same lineup and presents an interchangable show as a result. I saw an interview with the lady in charge of one of Australia's most popular: Splendour In The Grass. She said she'd love to go back to the fetival's more quiet, hippy-ish roots and stop booking the current batch of international festival acts. But she won't, because it's worth fat cash to get Phoenix and Blur this year, or whoever it turns out to be. It's a shame but it reflects, in a way, a similar problem with the music itself: what we consider more artistically valuable usually makes far less money.

What? I'm glad Grinderman back. Everyone who enjoys music or has trouble in the bedroom should be glad Grinderman is back. Don't ever call me plain again. http://liveon35mm.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/grinderman1.jpg

Also, Grinderman is still a thing? I guess Nick's commitment to his musical projects melts in the face of a double payday.

I went to a free Converse show earlier this year here in Brisbane - Royal Headache and Kitchen's Floor in a boxing ring - and after that one I'm pretty sure Converse don't give a fuck what happens as long as people talk about it. They gave everyone free beer for 1.5 hours before the show, people were apparently doing coke off the windowsills, and a mosh pit surrounding a boxing ring with broken glass on the floor is a nightmare. No Age taking some pot shots at the company just 'proves' that Converse books the real edgy bands, even if it's to their own detriment because they care about the music, man. They were playing in the first place and that's all Converse wanted. And hey, free Stereogum feature. No Age probably got a bonus.
