I’m running out of Bruno photos, hey. I’ve been meaning to spend more time actively taking photos of him – and of things in general – but everything has been so turbulent lately, the thought keeps slipping past me. With no end in sight for Sydney’s lockdown (or the restrictions accompanying it), it’s been hard to feel optimistic about too much. But I’m keeping busy, which is helping with the mental side of it. Case in point: a few really big days of music news, which I had the wicked privilege of helping to cover at NME.
My highlight for this week is the announcement of The Beths’ live album, recorded at their Auckland Town Hall show from last November. I absolutely adore The Beths – Jump Rope Gazers was my album of the year for 2020 – and I was so irreparably devastated when they postponed their Australian tour back in June. I have my fingers crossed they’ll be able to whip over here soon (probably not in November as planned), but in the meantime, this LP will be a nice little consolation prize. I’m stoked the film is going to be streaming on Apple TV+ as well, I knew that yearlong free trial would come in handy at some point!
Hi, my name is Matt – I like dogs and music. When I'm not petting the former, I'm writing (or editing other writers' works) about the latter. Currently holding down the fort at Australian Guitar and freelancing all over the place.
