Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: For Sale: Moral compass

Some weeks it’s hard to navigate the big feelings I have around injustice; the kind of injustice that occurs every day, everywhere, underwritten by the privilege of some at the expense of the many. The shit stuff people get away with! The shit stuff no one notices. Shit stuff always happens to people who don’t have much to start with. I sometimes wonder how you can hear story after story and not realise the system is broken. Capitalism sucks. Let’s go break stuff – like, the dominant paradigm! We haven’t managed to subvert it – so can we smash it into tiny pieces? Please?

Van She, tonight, Buddha Bar

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OaanwN1vFQ

Van She’s current sunshine-in-a-glass single Jamaica is all over your airwaves and follows the album’s title track Idea of Happiness, which re-launched Van She back into the musical spotlight. So uplifting it’s practically levitational, Van She’s new album is their most focused, joyous musical excursion to date. An album stirred by sun-baked travels and fleeting truths, and shaken with the sands of time, Idea of Happiness was recorded, engineered and produced by the band themselves in Kings Cross, Sydney, and mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, Beck, Phoenix, M83) in Los Angeles. Byron Brewery Buddha Bar on Wednesday.
