South African Music ...

The Anti Retro Vinyls Sign Label Deal! Apr28

The Anti Retro Vinyls Sign Label Deal!

We’ve been listening to and tweeting about and commenting on and status updating and propaganda dropping The Anti Retro Vinyls every chance we get lately… So imagine our stoke when we found out that they spent last week finalising and signing a label deal with Just Music SA. It turns out when advised to sign an organic veggie box full of sweet potato and cabbage from the local herbalist, Just Music made the much more logical and life-giving choice of signing Anti Retro Vinyls instead. Who wouldn’t?!   If you haven’t heard of them, imagine a band that’s put their own twist on The Cribs and The Wombats type...

Wakaberry Umhlanga: ...

Confession time. I have never had Wakaberry… not until last night. Never understood the fuss over frozen yoghurt with various toppings as it’s er, frozen yoghurt. But oh boy, was my ignorance my demise. Turns out, I’ve been missing out. TwoSlice and I attended the launch of...

The Plastics Release Music Video for ‘Stereo...

Cape Town band, The Plastics, have just released the new music video for their not-so-new single… Stereo Kids. The track has been sitting pretty on radio charts for a while now and doesn’t look like it is going anywhere soon. The song seems to be driven lyrically by a sense of nostalgia and we have to say that director Robert Smith has done an epic job at translating it visually. The Plastics are a hard-working bunch and one of the few bands I know that make their way to Durban gigs with smiles on their faces. Headlining Red Eye! 2010 was a highlight of the whole event and their following gig at Unit 11 showed even more growth....

Gangs of Ballet and ...

Local lifestyle and entertainment site, The Socialite, have put out their latest vid, together with zalebs, covering the recent Botanical Gardens gig where Gangs of Ballet opened for The Parlot Ones. To be honest, we’re probably only talking about this video because Gangs is in it. To...

‘Hot Problems'...

Every bit of me wanted to categorize this as ‘Humour’… alas, it’s a real attempt. Weary of Rebecca Black-esque whiplash, even the publishers of the song announce as a disclaimer: “Old Bailey Productions did not create any of the audio or lyrics for this video. We...

Opening Night Review: Basically, Go See ‘The Single Dad’! Apr20

Opening Night Review: Basically, Go See ‘The...

How it works is, if you’ve reviewed a comedy show before, you’ll get asked to do the next one, and then we’ll label you ‘The Comedy Girl’ and delegate all related responsibilities as such.. So, here’s Jil as ‘The Comedy Girl’ with her review on last night’s opening show for Jem Atkins’ The Single Dad. My quick two cents: It’s a great achievement and a great show. It runs tonight and tomorrow evening before it leaves Durban for its tour.. so catch it while you can. The time was upon us . The night had come. The dawn had broken. The moment had arrived on what would become the...

Thomas Krane: God Of...

Oh my, Thomas Krane… I don’t know if I ever did or didn’t, but I remember that over a year a go this Durban band blew me away so much, that I labelled them as the most underrated and best kept secret this city has. I might have swapped ‘city’ for...
