Q & A with Bootleg Rascal

Sydney-based ghetto-dubsters Bootleg Rascal have just unveiled their long-awaited sophomore album ‘Anónimo’ – produced by long-time collaborator Ian Pritchett (Boo Seeka, Kim Churchill, Angus and Julia Stone).

Taking cues from the likes of staple influences Gorillaz, Kid Cudi and Massive Attack, ‘Anònimo’ combines themes of hip hop, reggae, indie-rock, dub and electronica. Whilst melding an array of eclectic influences, the brooding new record simultaneously shines a light on the group’s ability to deliver on a cohesive sound.

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen Bootleg Rascal on the Coast, but luckily, they’ve included a stop at Solbar on Thursday October 25th…

In celebration of this single, Clowns are touring Australia, including a stop-over at Solbar on September 29th.

We sent through a few q’s to vocalist, Stevie…

It's always good to catch up to these guys before they head our way (July 28th, Solbar, with Hemingway)... and this time around, we caught up with guitarist/producer Scott 'Frenchy' French.

Q & A with High Tropics

High Tropics have had a stellar 12 months so far, and they're only on the up and up.  A slew of killer singles, plenty of JJJ, Spotify and Music Blog attention, and a busy gigging roster, has seen the band show no signs of slowing down.  But... we're finally getting them back here on the Coast for a home show at Solbar on June 29.
