On the Cultural Front: Tik Tu On the War in Ukraine and the Role of Music

More than a month after the beginning of the Russian war on Ukraine on February 24th, the strikes of the aggressor continue to devastate the country.

Ending 2020 On A High Note: The Avalanches Keep The Spark Of Hope Alive On Their Third Album

Following the legendary 16-year-gap between their first two albums the genre-breaking Australian group now returns with their relatively quick third album "We Will Always Love You." Following a year that was clearly lacking of hope and positive moments they couldn't have picked a better timing for their life-affirming pop cocktail.

Shortly before the release of their fifth studio album ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong’, we met up with drummer Suren de Saram to talk about the circumstances of their reunion, impacts of individual projects on the new songs, and keeping a bright mindset when facing dire times.

‘May You Always Be Loved’: A Mote Of Dust’s Craig Beaton On Quitting Music

Craig Beaton, legendary figure of the Scottish indie music scene and his musical partner Graeme Smillie announced a final musical statement as A Mote Of Dust before the man quite possibly stops music alltogether.
