New Album. The Lottery Tickets – Evergreen

Surprises are the best, hey? After calling it quits almost three years ago, The Lottery Tickets have been sitting on their album Evergreen ever since without releasing it to the world. Yesterday, out of the blue, the band finally posted a link to the full nine-track album, streaming on Youtube. It’s here in all it’s post-adolescent, small-town glory. Thanks, Somerset West. Now how about a reunion show? An album about the beach. An album about hating yourself and about loving everything so much you want to die. An album about being high in a play school. An album about best... Read more

Interview: Lara Adine Lipschitz of Chin Up.

Chin Up, one of our favourite local web series, has a lovely creator, Lara Lipschitz. We have seen a bit of a decline in the production of episodes as she has been on stage performing in cabaret but hopefully we will see some more episodes soon. We caught up with her recently and did a little style shoot with her… You are primarily an actress who has both featured in an on stage version of cabaret and taken the initiative to create your own online comedy series, how did the two differ? Performing on stage requires a whole different set... Read more

Seferino on His New EP, ‘Monkey With No Tail!’

After releasing the first track and music video earlier this month, one of our favourite new(ish) additions to this country’s burgeoning electronic landscape – Seferino – dropped his debut EP via Secret Songs, entitled Monkey With No Tail!. Simple but not simplistic, it’s a highly pleasant aural experience – a combination of sensual dreampop and afro-infused groove with disco-influenced undertones. Other than John Wizards, what’s influenced you musically? I had a lot of great music pushed onto me by my family growing up. Like The Beatles, Steely Dan, Miles Davis and stuff. When we got ADSL (I kinda presume this happened to... Read more

New Surf Documentary. My Road Series Vol.III – Three Deserts

The third part of a thrilling new surf documentary series by Nic von Rupp has arrived, and it’s as good as expected. Taking part over three continents, the surf crew arrive home from Hawaii on Christmas Day, which of course means a swell of perfect conditions. The team moves from the long barrels of North Africa, to the lava deserts of the mid-Atlantic, and ultimately concluding in the western terrains of Australia. It’s a whole lot of beautiful landscape and perfect waves: Read more

Stelth Ulvang Performs ‘Clocktower’ at Popsicle Studios

Earlier this year we had The Lumineers down in South Africa for a couple of really great shows. It seems as though something stuck with band member Stelth Ulvang, who made his way around the country recently for some magical solo shows, featuring some of South Africa’s best thanks to the City Soirée team. Popsicle Studio had Ulvang over for an intimate studio performance in front of a tiny audience – and they’ve filmed it in its entirety. We saw a downtempo ‘St. Peter’ in the last video released by Popsicle, featuring Albert Frost, Lee Thomson, Bonj Mpanza and more.... Read more

New Music Video. Foals – ‘Mountain At My Gates’

Last week we heard the next single off one of 2015’s most anticipated album’s; Foals’ follow-up to 2013’s Holy Fire; entitled What Went Down.

Watch it on Google Chrome or the YouTube App, using AWSD keys to move around. According to the initial press release that came out with the last track, Yannis Philippakis is said to have been...

WIN TICKETS to Sage Francis (USA)

Cape Town, you got lucky! Widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists, Sage Francis is heading to town next weekend for one show at the Assembly. Dubbed as the “forefather of indie-hop,” Francis originally earned acclaim in the early 2000’s by winning the most highly coveted titles of the emcee battle circuit. With little to no funding, Francis sustained himself by selling his innovative “Sick of” mixtapes, all made by hand on the floor of his Providence, RI apartment. These were essentially bootleg compilations full of select recordings from his 12” vinyl singles, demo sessions, live performances and radio... Read more
