You Beauty – Illywhacka (Bedroom Suck)

You Beauty – Illywhacka (Bedroom Suck)

As someone who broadcasts opinions (not for a living, tho), I worry when a band strikes my fancy and I can’t explain why. By all accounts, You Beauty shouldn’t charm me as they do – they’re the usual four-man rock band outfit from Sydney, albeit with slick new wave haircuts and humming basslines and banshee […]

Who makes the rules for music?

‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ is a prime example of AABA with an outro.

If you’re going to tell me his songs came out of nowhere and were never influenced by other bands, we’ll have to do some kung fu

Pop music that shits all over the tired, tepid male rock posturing of the other nine videos from a wonderfully giddy height.
