The Occupants are a supergroup of sorts, boasting former members of Cog, Sleep Parade and other local rock favourites. Cool story alert: One time I saw Cog play with a hardcore bros Irrelevant, it was quite enjoyable and I’m pretty sure that Irrelevant also used to play a neat Motley Crue cover. How fucking good are Motley Crue? How much of an idol is Tommy Lee? Anyway, The Occupants will be dropping their Hindsight EP very soon, and we’ve received the opening title track... read more
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since the release of Sarah Blasko’s admirable debut album The Overture & the Underscore, and since then she’s firmly established herself as one of the country’s best songwriters.

It probably comes as no shock that Jennifer Lawrence is currently topping a chart, what with her being one of today’s most popular and sought-after actresses, but even we were surprised to learn that she’s cracked the UK Top 40 Singles Chart, seeing as she’s, you know, not a musician.
