SYN Saves Australian Music

The infamous SLAM rally was inspired by bitterness, but was brought together by hope. Yeah that sounds cheesy, but it’s true, and now every year we have a day to pause and think about all the good that Australian music has brought us: Kylie Minogue and swaths of failed Neighbours stars attempting to follow in her wake, Peter Garrett’s dancing, Farnesy’s fluctuating career (I’m never really sure whether he’s retiring or making a comeback), and Matty Corby. Here at SYN we do things a little differently though, so rather than revisiting the Aussie rock canon, we decided to pick a few albums that said a little more about us. So without further ado, here’s to Aussie music, and here’s this week’s reviews:
TeenagerThirteen by Jemima Lewis
Adalita Adalita by Kristina Dias
SkyhooksLiving In The 70s by Kellie Macnaughtan
Frenzal Rhomb A Man’s Not A Camel by Olivia Whyte
The PresetsApocalypso by Phoebe Spinks
