INTERNATIONAL CD REVIEW Artist: Grizzly Bear EP: Friend


Label: Warp Records/Inertia


An impeccably crafted psychedelic-folk collection, Grizzly Bear’s delicate siren song drifts on a dreamy cloud for the entire length of this EP. Friend is comprised of alternate reworkings of songs from two previous recordings, as well as b-sides and covers by the inimitable Band of Horses, Atlas Sound (Deerhunter) and CSS. The Grizzly Bear sound puts you into a hypnotic stupor with beautifully layered vocals and a myriad of soft flowing melody. Acid folk, neo-psyche- delia, lo-fi... call it what you will, these guys need to be heard.


AUSSIE CD REVIEW Artist: The Mess Hall Album: Devil’s Elbow Label: Ivy League


DVD REVIEW - La Vie En Rose L


a Vie En Rose looks deep into the life of French chan- teuse Edith Piaf, illustrating her rise from the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York, armed with one major weapon - a magical voice.


The film skips back and forth through various key moments in Piaf’s disjointed life, from her upbringing in a brothel to her conquests on the stage and in the bed- room, before her eventual death. It is a roller-coaster ride of breathtaking highs and excruciatingly depress- ing lows as Piaf struggles through bruising encounters with sex, booze, drugs, love and life in general. The highlight of this film is Marion Cotillard’s out- standing portrayal of Piaf. Not only does she do justice to the physical appearance of the “Little Sparrow,” she manages to capture and present the intimate connec- tion that Piaf had, and thrived upon, with her audience. Directed by Olivier Dahan the cast also includes Gé- rard Depardieu (Tais-toi!, Green Card) and Jean-Paul Rouve (A Very Long Engagement, Monsieur Batignole). You can pick up a copy of La Vie En Rose at Block- buster Clovelly, 221 Clovelly Road, 9665 5368.


Second full-length release from Sydney’s The Mess Hall, Devil’s Elbow takes everything that was loved in their first al- bum and adds angles and tangents that all point in the right direction. Jed and Cec have produced an album laced with the old bluesy-rock that first raised our brows, and included tastes of alt-country, tracks on the brink of folk, and more than a fleeting moment of stirring haunt delivered from vocal and slide. Not only one of the best live bands in the country, The Mess Hall have graced us with a cracking studio effort.


LOCAL CD REVIEW Artist: The Kahn Brothers EP: The Kahn Brothers (Tour EP)


The Kahn Brothers is the new project from singer-songwriters Edo and Nadav Kahn, formerly of indie-pins Gelbison. An exciting new prospect for all those still with tears in their eyes at the disappearance of Gelbison, the Kahn boys are back. This tour EP is only available online (and at US tour shows) but should provide the perfect taster to their recently completed debut record, “Love Melts Fear”, which will be unleashed on the world officially in the upcoming months. Keep an eye out for it, until then enjoy this little nibble...
