Answers to all of life’s unanswered (and answered) questions

Thursday, 4 February, 2016

Because there’s a Paige in everyone’s life, one way or another.

Wednesday, 3 February, 2016

The video clip for Wide Open, a track from the Chemical Brothers most recent album, Born in the Echoes, features a dancer who gradually turns into a 3D print-out of herself.

Hi, I must be going, it’s Friday, but here’s some music by SUIIX

Friday, 29 January, 2016

Some music to close out the week, because yes, it is Friday already. It was a four-day working week in this part of the world on account of Australia Day on Tuesday, so maybe that’s why the week has felt rushed. What is it they say about four-day weeks? There’s still five days work to do.

Hi is a track recorded by Sydney group SUIIX in 2014. Sarah Jullienne is the vocalist… that’s an amazing voice she has.
