New EP. Psych Night Inner City Psych Fest – Into the Sound

After weeks of dropped hints and building anticipation, an exciting collaboration between the minds behind Psych Night, FutureNow Records and Red Bull Studios has emerged in the form of a five-track contributive EP featuring five key Psych Night-backed acts set to play at this weekend’s 3rd annual Cape Town Inner City Psych Fest. We were hugely impressed by CAVES’ re-emergence this year in the form of a full-length album, and so one of their rare performances is not to be missed! They’re joining Psalms, a duo we’ve heard rumour but seen little evidence of – but from the sounds of... Read more

New Album. Jett Screams – Godsplitter

From the man that brought you Beach Party, Gateway Drugs, The Dollfins, Pussy Slap and a little bot of everything in between, David Gabriel Thorpe is back under his ‘Jett Screams’ moniker, a progression from the name ‘Pussy Slap’ for the sake of being able to appear on posters. His blend of dirty garage grunge started out round about last year with a self-made video, EP and some tracks here and there. He’s finally delivered a full-length album, featuring nine tracks of ‘home recorded, lo-fi garage punk fun times': GODSPLITTER by Jett Screams Read more

New Trailer. ‘All Things Must Pass’

We love a good music documentary. All Things Must Pass takes us back to the heyday of the record store, before the digital era revolutionised how music sales operated. Established back in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with two hundred stores, in thirty countries, on five continents. From humble beginnings in a small-town drugstore, Tower Records eventually became the heart and soul of the music world, and a powerful force in the music industry. In 1999, Tower Records made $1 billion. But, in 2006, the company filed for bankruptcy. What went wrong? Everyone thinks they know what... Read more

Update: ‘By the River’ by Gabriella Achadinha

Gabriella Achadinha has emerged over the past few years, honing her special knack for capturing the spirit of a beautiful woman, very often against the backdrop of a wild expanse. Her latest effort involves Michelle Allen’s doll-like beauty, shot in the scenic Scarborough area in Western Cape Town, inspired by the raincoat scene with Paz Vega in ‘The Limits of Control’. According to Sticks and Stones, cinematic references have always been a huge source of inspiration for photographer Gabriella Achadinha and her work often focuses on capturing the female form in a strong yet sensitive way. Make sure you check... Read more

New Music Video. Talib Kweli & Cassper Nyovest – ‘Fuck The Money’

Late last year, Talib Kweli headed to Jozi and met up with one of this country’s current biggest names, Cassper Nyovest.

During last month, Kweli announced in an Instagram post he was drooping a free album, and true to his word, he’s released Fuck The Money in its entirety via kweliclub.com, with the title track featuring our very own Cassper Nyovest.
