Say anything

Shortstraw – Say Anything music video

Remember that time you were in an American High School and fell in love for the first time but then things didn’t work out because your life is a romantic comedy? Or maybe a horror movie? Shortstraw released a new music video, for the track Say Anything of their latest album Youthless. Maybe it’s one for the cinephiles.


Shortstraw is an indie rock band from Johannesburg, South Africa. They have released three albums – the latest being Youthless, released in January 2015.

Crashing and Burning pt II – Philadelphia Grand Jury

It’s been 3 years, 9 months and 29 days since Philadelphia Grand Jury broke up. During their one quick visit to South Africa a few years ago, they established their firm, high position on my list of best live acts I’ve seen. They were exciting, dramatic, punk-rock, emo with a touch of shoegaze, all rock-and-rolled into one. Two years later, the band broke up, frontman Berkfinger moved to Berlin and started a side project called Feelings, and the “Philly Jays” were over. But now they’re back. And to celebrate their reunion and upcoming album, they dropped a new single titled “Crashing and Burning pt II”.
