February ’21 post dump!

Hi, hey, hello!

At the start of the year, I told myself I’d be using this site a lot more frequently, and posting at least once a week. But alas, we’re ankle-deep in March and I have posted literally once – I’m sorry. Please accept the above photo of my adorable baby Bruno as a consolation.

Anyway, here’s everything of mine that got published around the web (see: one piece for BLUNT and the rest on the Guitar World site – I also need to up my freelancing game ASAP, I know) in February. Note: all the GW features are also printed physically in Australian Guitar #141, which is out now wherever great magazines are sold!

Beyond The Beat: Hachiku battles slugs and soil with her ambitious home garden

AUSTRALIAN GUITAR (via GUITAR WORLD)

Yungblud: “Why, by some f***ing miracle, have I gotten this far? Because of my fanbase and my community – they know I’m telling the truth to them, and I ain’t gonna leave them behind”

Luca Brasi’s Tom Busby: “We actually made a conscious effort to put heaps less pressure on ourselves”

Pale Waves’ Heather Baron-Gracie: “This album is a journey through my emotional growth as a person across the past year”

Tash Sultana: “I wrote an album that coincided with the realisations I was having within myself”

You Me At Six’s Max Helyer: “The best way to describe how I write a song is that I look at it as though I’m a painter”

Julien Baker: “Nothing about it is really haphazard – even the stuff that sounds intentionally lo-fi, or minimalist, is actually very calculated”

Architects’ Adam Christianson: “We wanted to start fresh and try some new things”

Amahiru’s Saki: “It was so fun to work with Frédéric Leclercq and we both had a lot of ideas, so we decided to make Amahiru its own project”

Billie Joe Armstrong – No Fun Mondays album review

Hachiku – I’ll Probably Be Asleep album review

Joe Bonamassa – Royal Tea album review

To see this one out, here’s a song I am absolutely obsessed with at the moment. It’s the new single by Norwegian alt-pop trailblazer Girl In Red, “Serotonin”, from her debut album if i could make it go quiet – which lands April 30th via AWAL. I’ve been stewing with an advance copy of the record for a couple of weeks now, and I’m still blown away by it all over again on every listen (I’ve probably played it cover-to-cover a solid 100 times by now). It’s my first 10/10 album for 2021. I’m dying to get my hands on the vinyl come April. “Serotonin” is definitely a highlight on the record, too; I hope you like it as much as I do.
