Snobbson Scrillson

SNOB SCRILLA, (absolutely kills it)

Day one is snob scrilla 'aka hey hey Sean Ray's first and only full length album thus far, 'its not bad but' (says my father).

Day one is a 15 song complitation featuring mutherfuckin jumpin' tracks and a few bonus remix's which shalack the senses. Mr. officer in particular, remixed by Del. tha Funkee Homosapien, could be taken straight to your local dance mecca and ripped untampered with.

Only released this year, this year the year of 2009, Day one hits home from day dot, with the diversfiable electro sounds warping high and low to offer a plethora of vibrations for your hearing aids to process. 'UPBEAT' may be a miscalculation; mostly set at a ripping pace, snob scrilla is nevertheless slow when he needs to be, reeling back the intensity and allowing us to enjoy the softer side of our Hearbreak Scorsese, if only for a moment.

Lyrically, if he wasn't afraid of some form of south park retribution, his autobiography would feature a one page leaflet simply stating 'well, i'm a lyrical genius', but, it hasn't been published yet so i can not confirm. But in all seriousness, the lyrics are well written, relevant and delivered with spot on conviction and timing. (full credits to whoever was the brains behind this production).

What a fucking long review, im not finished yet either so reeeeel your attention span back in and lets talk about the storyline. Following the conventions of modern old school rap, SEAN HEY RAY tells the story of racism with less than little subtley, on both the international scale and on his domestic level. "timmy declares war" makes it almost laughable to misinterpret this album. hopefully no one with indeible street cred doesnt discover an undercurrent and disembowels me creatively forever.

Finally, Saw Snob Scrilla Spin Some Sounds Sometime shearlier shthis shyear at the Empire in Brisbane. Don't remember what he played, had a fucking class night but, chatted to him at the end and he had one of the most articulated dialogues i've come across.

hey hey sean ray, look out for his next installment and any live shows!

RetroMetro Vintage Apparrel

Paddington, situated high above Brisbane is a beautifully orientated bohemian suburb with that distinct taste of old queenslanders and vintage clothing/furniture/accessories/attitudes.This terrible terrible stereotype is upheld brilliantly by retrometro on latrobe terrace.
The clothing is retro, the shop is modern, the annoying employees are absent, but the prices are planting the dollar sign on mt everest. Walking through the vast array of one-off pieces, it becomes clear immediately this is one of the best collaborations of vintage wear in Brisbane.

No doubt about it, its not second hand grandma trash found in cabinets aboard giant wooden galleys, this shit is good and fresh man. If I wasn't such a pleb and my bank balance further towards the black I would have strolled out with a backpack full of recycled fashion.

But....for me, half the fun with vintage clothing is the joy of walking into lifeline and finding that little gem that you pay with money found on the floor of your car. Nevertheless, for the serious vintage collector, RETROMETRO on Latrobe is a must visit and a must purchase in my books.paddington stirs up another beauty.


VETO - Danish Exploration

Danish indie rockers VETO may only be just hearing their swell sounds on public domains, but the band is reaping the rewards with their new not-so-silky new single "Built to Fail" being shoved out on radios all over.

The 5 piece have built sounds on bouncy melodies with pumping vocals, excellent for smashin your head around yet still being smooth enough to think 'hey, m83'. The high pitched-almost desperate vocals give it a punk electro feel which is refreshing but safe (not necessarily for making money)

They may not enjoy the tag retro - but thats what they're tagged as so live with it mannn

My honest opinion? Will never purchase, will not try hard to illegally download - hypem will be sufficient.

In their defence, the rest of the world appears to be giving them a big 'fuckyeah' so if they do become INFAMOUS i will be quietly deleting this post
