The contributors of Temporary Dreamer run through their Number One selection for the Triple J Hottest 100.
Strawberry Fields will be returning to its stunning home on the banks of the Murray River in Tocumwal, NSW from 29 – 31 October 2021. After a hiatus in 2020 due to COVID-19, organisers are bringing the 12th edition of Strawberry Fields forward one month, to reunite music lovers and restart the contribution of festivals to regional economies.
Coopers Brewery and Live Nation team up to bring live music back across Australia
Another boring Thursday night calls for the perfect opportunity for a great night of live music and what better way to do that than having two talented bands play great sets at the Lansdowne.
Marking a return to gigs in the Warehouse at the Cambridge Hotel, The Buoys return to Newcastle with a bang supported by local favourites Mission: Banana.
This is punk. It is honest, relentless and draws both social criticism and reflection. The type of music that makes you sit back and think about the world around you.
This past weekend the Civic Theatre played host to a fantastic lineup of Newcastle’s finest bands all thanks to Newcastle Music Collective. It’s a beautiful venue to enjoy live music at, the way the stage lights illuminate the ceiling is grand.
A set that was full of energy, really well performed songs, enjoyably awkward banter between the members, and easily one of the best shows I’ve been to in a while.
We Are Fine oozes a subtle nostalgia for the memories we are now creating
LSD Chimpanzee is the debut single from Sydney Alt Rock band ‘Martom’ and we’re fortunate enough to be premiering the track right now, here on Temporary Dreamer. If you’re a fan of Alt-J, Rex Orange County or just want a new go-to track, I highly recommend this one.
‘First Contact’ has so many positive things going for it, with the excellent vocals and production making for the some of the best Australian electro-pop music that we’ve heard in 2020.
It’s a banger that people should be playing over the next few months, whether they’re with their friends at the beach, at a pool party over the new year’s period or simply just needing something to lift their mood. I’m keen to see what The Lulu Raes do next, and hopefully catch them at a live show soon.
OK Hotel have nailed this one with five angsty choruses ready for Aussie audiences to sing back around the country.
There’s a lot of trial and error, back and forth, and about 20 versions of the song before we got to the final version that we stuck with, whether it was the intertwining melodies that were too distracting or having to remove one or two things. It’s the trial and error that makes the process an arduous journey, but in the end a rewarding one.
I have issues confronting my true feelings in some situations… I need something that gets everything down in black and white.
I remember singing but I could hear everyone else singing the lyrics cos they new the song, which was crazy like I almost felt like I should stop singing and just let them sing it.
People who have seen us live will know that we like to crack jokes and have a fun time. There’s also a bit of political commentary, and I think that it’s the first time that we’ve tried to tap in and write songs with a bit more of an introspective look at how politics affects us opposed to how the world around us affects us, and how we all fit into the that world in a bit more depth.
We don’t want to look what a pop artist looks like. We don’t want to look like what you think a punk artist should look like. We just want to be like ourselves.
