Ov Pain

Posted 12:03pm Sunday 13th August 2017 by Reg Norris

I’m not from here. Most of the people from where I’m from migrate north to the oily plains of Melbourne. It’s a rite of passage and sign of artistic commitment, or the need for restaurants open after 10pm, departure lounges teeming with tortured fortune seekers, or the guarantee of Read more...

Italian Inspirations Review: Taking Dad to the DSO

Posted 1:03pm Sunday 6th August 2017 by Ihlara McIndoe

Sadly, it’s always a struggle to find somebody to claim the second ticket of my double DSO pass. My friend pool of Western Art Music fans (the “WAM-fam”) is on the light side, and is significantly diminished once you remove those who are members of the orchestra, so have no need Read more...

That No I.d. Friend And The Story Of Jay-z

Posted 1:01pm Sunday 6th August 2017 by Grimm Selfie

In July 2017, Jay-Z released his long awaited return with the album 4:44. Like any good story there’s a person behind the elevator miss-haps, sipping lemonade in the shadows, that makes things happen. In this case it’s a person known as No I.D. It’s an odd thing when we listen Read more...

Critic Reviews: Spring Break

Posted 9:21am Monday 24th July 2017 by Sam Fraser-Baxter

It was a typically arctic night, as just over a thousand scarfies flooded into the Union Hall for OUSA’s Spring Break event on the Thursday of Re-O week. The event was touted by OUSA as an act of solidarity; a collective ‘fuck you’ to winter. They couldn’t have timed it Read more...

This Boring Man

Posted 1:08pm Sunday 23rd July 2017 by Grimm Selfie

Back in November 2016, Johnny Marr, guitarist and cofounder of The Smiths, released his autobiography ‘Set the Boy Free’. It’s a book that spans his entire life, but of course focuses on how he came to knock on Morrissey’s door, and together change indie Read more...

Album Review: Music To Get Puppies To Sleep

Posted 1:31pm Sunday 16th July 2017 by Anonymous

My job is awful, But this album is worse. I pass him on the stairs. Gazing into the bloodshot eyes of a man whose bowel has erupted in brown rage not once but three times in one day. He doesn’t know that I know. It was like picking up mud in the pouring rain. My job is awful, But Read more...

Sibelius & Prokofiev

Posted 1:01pm Sunday 9th July 2017 by Ihlara McIndoe

Conductor: Marc Taddei Soloist: Ilya Gringolts For a concert in which nationalism and internationalism featured strongly, John Psathas’s Luminous was a fitting work to begin with. Commissioned as a “Century Fanfare” by the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra in 1998, Psathas says Read more...

Harry Styles: An Exit Interview with Harry Styles

Posted 12:56pm Sunday 9th July 2017 by Grimm Selfie

As I sit here in my Mongolian yurt surrounded by Moroccan rugs, braiding a small child’s hair, my mind, alone, riffs on the void that is the wafer-thin transubstantiation of new age consumption. My spirit weaver weaves slow, for it grows limp. It has lost its one direction. What to listen to Read more...

Blankets–An Interview with Sasha Ford

Posted 12:54pm Sunday 28th May 2017 by Renee Barrance

  Earlier this year in March, on a rainy Sunday afternoon and post a whirlwind weekend of incredible music happening in Dunedin, I saw Montreal-based composer and sound artist Sasha Ford perform her solo electronic project Blankets at None Gallery. Blankets had also played the night before Read more...

Basically Baroque

Posted 12:54pm Sunday 21st May 2017 by Ihlara McIndoe

Kicking off the first of the 2017 Matinee series on the 29 April, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra’s Basically Baroque concert was certainly a hit. So often it takes an orchestra a while to settle into Bach, but the Concerto for Violin and Oboe was precise and enthralling right from the get-go. Read more...
