Ready Player One arrives at our shores just in time for Easter, and fittingly it is the quintessential turducken of an Easter feast. It is an Easter egg stuffed with Easter eggs, wrapped in Easter eggs and – to take this metaphor possibly too far, but screw it – covered in rich melted Easter egg sauce.
It’s your third year in a row going to Mieliepop, so you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. What to pack, where the good camping spots are, what time of day to go for a booze cruise, et cetera. But then, just a day or two before the festival, some horrible weather predictions start rolling in…
The Amblers may be a newly revamped band, but their competent blues-rock sound easily confrim them as the local duo that’s got us most excited at the moment. They just dropped a debut EP, The Dustling Man…
Just like Bob Dylan in 1965, Park Acoustics is GOING ELECTRIC! And you can see it for yourself by scoring a set of double tickets to Park Electric below!
I won’t lie, I approached this review with some trepidation, as I don’t think I’m the target demographic for this album, being an English chick who primarily listens to rock and metal. However, Piet Botha has released a very listenable album in Die Middernagtrein. There are one or two songs that miss the mark for me, but music is quite a personal thing so please feel free to disagree with me.

Just like the game, Them Dirty Shrikes has taken a gamble with their debut EP Heads or Tails… and it’s paid off.
I thoroughly enjoyed Critical As Water – Jeremy Loops’ latest album. Most of the songs find you bobbing your head along without even realizing it. I really can’t find much to criticize about this album. It might be my own musical tastes creeping in, but I’m picking up a few Newton Faulkner influences here and there, as well as a subtle hint of Ed Sheeran.
Hanneke Schutte was ‘n kind vol vrese. “Ek was só bang gewees toe ek klein was. Ek was regtig bang vir álles. My pa-hulle het nie geweet wat om met my te doen nie. Ek kon nie eens in die gang afloop in die aand nie, ek moes hardloop — al was die ligte aan.”
Ek weet nie of oorweldigende vrees jou ‘n beter kandidaat maak om ‘n storie oor vrees te vertel nie, maar Hanneke het besluit om te probeer. Sy is die skrywer-regisseur van Meerkat Maantuig, ‘n nuwe fliek wat grootliks gaan oor vrees.
