I just released a novel called Fantastic Adventure. I lied, I didn’t.

Com Truise – Wave 1
New EP from Com Truise that came out a week or two ago. There are a few hit and misses on this as the pacing is quite inconsistent throughout, but there are a few stand out tracks – Subsonic, Miserere Mei and Wave 1. I still hang onto his earlier glory days creating some seriouslyContinue reading “Com Truise – Wave 1”
It has been a bit tricky finding shirt designs I like lately. The shops seem to be heavy on surf-inspired designs (fair call considering the whole beach and Bondi bohemian thing that’s happening), brands which kind-of… don’t have a point, and American-Street-inspired stuff which isn’t quite me. Like all the literature out there on theContinue reading “Shirts.”
Hendrick’s Gin Illustrations
Was doing some homework on Hendrick’s Gin; the visuals are absolutely amazing! Not sure if it’s getting the attention it deserves.
I Accidentally Some Gashapon Vending Machines
//instagram.com/p/kOvcjuCoHT I had one of those weird motivational/ beast-mode moments a few weeks ago; it kick-started a new weekend project for me.

I’ve always had an odd relationshipContinue reading “I Accidentally Some Gashapon Vending Machines”
Hands – The Soul is Quick
The Field’s Axel Willner has just released his side project, Hands, on one of Kompakt’s smaller sub-labels, Ecstatic, for what seems to be even more left-field offerings. A far cry from his previous stuff Looping State of Mind and Cupid’s Head, Willner elaborates that it’s “a protest record for when you’ve had enough of how theContinue reading “Hands – The Soul is Quick”
Slowdive – Pygmalion Demos
News of Slowdive’s reunion reminded me of a moment I had listening to their stuff one late night on the bus from UNSW when I was studying. I was listening to the Pygamalion Eras Demo album and I was getting seriously hooked. It was one of the first albums during my early music exploration phaseContinue reading “Slowdive – Pygmalion Demos”
Tribute to Hong Kong 80s Action Movies
Everything I love about the classic HK 80s film: the fighting sound effects, the space tracks, the old film look, even down to the font of the opening titles. What a time it was, and I’m glad I’m not alone in thinking that. I was inspired by Sarah playing some cheesy cover synth songs onContinue reading “Tribute to Hong Kong 80s Action Movies”
Bladerunner OST – Tales of the Future
Was re-listening to the Bladerunner soundtrack for the first time in a while the other day; I’ve almost forgotten how bloody amazing it is. One of my favourite tracks below.
I was recently mildly fascinated by the whole ‘squeegee men at traffic lights’ thing and my curiosity took me to Window Cleaning Magzine and some wiki articles.. Fact #1: In London, they are called Squeegee Merchants; slightly more noble sounding. Fact #2: Squeegee-ing can be serious business. Fact #3: RIP Lindsay
