‘Home’ album by Suze DeMarchi Reviewed by Rob Stewart Suze DeMarchi was gifted with a voice that was tailor made to traverse the tight rope extremes of mellifluous melancholia through to gut wrenching rock n roll…all without the aid of any namby pamby safety net! Never before has Suze’s range and dexterity been best displayed […]

‘Tunnel At The End Of The Light’ album by Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses Reviewed by Rob Stewart How do you surmise Tex Perkins? He is an enigmatic troubadour ingrained into the Australian music psyche, but I think DC Root did it best in his song ‘I wish I was Tex Perkins’ when he […]

‘Breakthrough’ EP album by ‘Harts’ Reviewed by Rob Stewart My Grandmother… whom I often reflect upon when looking for review inspiration (Insert mildly amusing chuckle) Often said to me as a young boy “If you want it done right, you’ve got to do it yourself!” which she quickly followed up by then bumping me out […]

‘Wanderlust’ album by Ella Fence Reviewed by Rob Stewart Good music should transcend you from the moment you find yourself trapped in and deliver you to another worldly moment where possibilities abound! Good music creates an emotional response that illustrates a scene in your minds eye that plays out to the highs and lows of […]

The Grenadiers – Summer Reviewed by Rob Stewart The Grenadiers by default, don’t politely knock at your door, shake your hand and shyly introduce themselves and then forewarn you of the impending musicality that may soon assail your listening gear!

The group of four men in their mid 20’s were born and raised in Sydney with Dave Le’aupepe as […]

Bärra Band – Dhapirrk Rirrakay Reviewed by Maria de Sotto Just after starting with Gove FM I was lucky to be in the studio to watch Bärra (Bahr-ra – meaning ‘the West Wind’) in action. They performed a couple of songs but it was the beautiful ‘Djarrawalu’ that has stayed with me for some time. I […]

$10,000 – The Crossword Reviewed by Maria de Sotto There are a few birthday presents I received as a kid that made my 1980s childhood complete: Cabbage Patch dolls, Donkey Kong video game, ‘Smash Hits’ cassettes, and my mini Casio synthesizer. I’m particularly sentimental with that last one and not just because it was a […]

Leura – Creature Of Sight LP Reviewed by Maria DeSotto Here at GOVE FM we receive a fair bit of material from various Aussie artists wanting to get their musical wares on the radio. Sorting through the pile, Leura’s ‘Creature of Sight’ stood out because it was produced by the award-winning Lachlan Mitchell (best known […]
