Down Down Down to the Wishing Well – Leafy Satori Risk

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I have reviewed a Leafy Satori Risk song before called Cherry Blossom Trees. This song, Down Down Down to the Wishing Well, is of a similar genre – sort of folk meets electro/psychedelic. Although, the band refer to their genre as ‘dream pop’, which is a great way of describing their sound… Continue reading

Baby Let Me Go – Smoking Martha

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Stepping away from their more upbeat and rocky music, Baby Let Me Go by Smoking Martha is a soft rock acoustic song with dark undertones on their album In Deep.

Echoing the glamorous style of rock and roll singers from the deep south, surprisingly this band hails from Brisbane’s sunny coastlines.

This is the second song I have reviewed of Smoking Martha’s, and I didn’t even realise because of how different this song is to the last one… Continue reading

Cherry Blossom Trees – Leafy Satori Risk

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Cherry Blossom Trees is a lullaby love song to Japan by Leafy Satori Risk. It’s a cool blues/soft jazz song with an echo of folk that blends into a song that evokes a passionate and beautiful Spring romance.

Cherry Blossom Trees is a slow-tempo song about, perhaps, being shrouded in desire and aspiration. Just like the floating petals, the writer’s dreams are beautiful and bold, yet barely tangible. The showers of pink petals summons a scene of a soft, pink-hued world. Maybe we’re looking through rose-tinted glasses… Continue reading

Miles Above the Baseline – I, Symptom

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Miles Above the Baseline is an astronomical-inspired song with emotive lyrics, self-described as ‘an unsupervised journey in space’. The alternative, electronic rock & roll genre with extraterrestrial-inspired material, reminds me of the War of the Worlds soundtrack. But this creates the unique style of I, Symptom. Continue reading

Windows – Greye

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Windows by Greye is a country-pop song, which echoes early Taylor Swift and Ashley Simpson.

With squeaky-clean, youthful and energetic female vocals – not dissimilar to the likes of Paramore’s lead vocalist -Greye certainly has a distinctive, almost acoustic folk, sound at times… Continue reading

Method of Madness 1 – CG Kid

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Method of Madness by CG Kid, is not a song I would typically listen to.

It is described as ‘dubstep techno metal rap’. A sort of rap music that is influenced by heavy metal and techno genres.

This song was written for the mosh-pit environment, with the ‘speed rap vocals’ bringing a particularly anxious and frantic air to the music – it’s hard to sit still while listening to Method of Madness… Continue reading

Love the Original Way (short film)

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Judging by the 40-second trailer, Love the Original Way’s plot was difficult to grasp.

Having consulted the Facebook page, I discovered this was a romantic comedy about a recovering alcoholic woman, Sissy, who turns to online dating.

After a few weird dates with various people, the so-called ‘mentally-unstable’ woman finds out that a man she has been messaging is actually in her drug and alcohol rehab class.

The concept seems a bit dark for a comedy, but online dating aspect is probably quite relatable to a young audience… Continue reading

Love Ain’t A Prize – Donica Knight

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Another country princess makes a pop song.

Despite being a high-production-value song and music video, Love Ain’t a Prize left me feeling like I had heard it all before. The country-pop genre tends to be quite monotonous for me.

This is not a poorly-made song, but the chorus repeats itself, which makes the writing appear lazy.

The style and sound becomes a self-fulfilling stereotype. The classic black-tassel-wearing and silver-studded band members came as no surprise in Donica Knight’s video… Continue reading

15 Minutes of Fame – Belle Vex

This gallery contains 2 photos.

I don’t really listen to pop music. But I’m pretty sure Belle Vex sounds similar to how I would imagine One Direction and the Johnson Brothers… Oh wait, that’s not right… Jonas Brothers, rather, would sound.

Belle Vex’s (AKA Beautiful Curse) sound is typical of the genre – nasally vocals with a frantic electronic vibe – which is popular these days. His music would likely be a hit in the nightclubs with today’s youth, especially if remixed… Continue reading

All In One Creativity Kit (short film)

This gallery contains 1 photo.

How bizarre!

This is a spoof of any infomercial you can think of. It is so well done too – very creative! It perfectly encapsulates the manic bullsh*t that we are exposed to every day – particularly on daytime television.

How they got the idea for this short film, I don’t know! But it’s certainly well done.

It seems like it’s essentially a commercial within itself; advertising a graphic design/filmmaking company. A bit hypocritical, but certainly a fun project nonetheless… Continue reading

The American Garage (web series)

This gallery contains 2 photos.

The American Garage is an online DIY show about woodwork and restoration. Some of their projects include restoring planes and building boats, as well as more affordable projects that are “at grass roots”.

They are currently looking for $26,200USD to continue their project, and are currently at $110. Episodes have already been produced and can be found on YouTube.

My favourite part is their motto and the reason behind their plea for funding: they want to relieve our reliance on conglomerates for products that could be built or modified at home.

They want people to stop being consumers and return to being producers… Continue reading
