Panama

Posted Aug. 24, 2014, 5:19 p.m.

Indietronica trio Panama has just put out their Always EP. It's a dreamy batch of groovy, lustrous dance songs that are reminiscent of fellow Australian synthpoppers Cut Copy. Panama's sophomore EP is also their most buzzworthy: the title-track has been played over a million times on Soundcloud and its music video has over 500,000 views on YouTube. Check out Scene Point Blank’s email chat with Panama’s Jarrah McCleary about the EP, SXSW, and T Bone Burnett. Scene Point Blank: What's the story behind the name Panama? Jarrah McCleary: I was working in Los Angeles with Eric Broucek and I hadn't come up for a name for the new music I was writing/recording ...

Heavens

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

Fans of Alkaline Trio and F-Minus would be forgiven for thinking their respective idols would be unlikely to occupy too similar territory. However, as Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio and Joe Steinbrick of F-Minus unite to form Heavens, they create a middle ground that encompasses goth, rock, electronic and alternative music. Comparisons to Brian Eno or even Joy Division have been made, and it's clear that Skiba and Steinbrick's efforts have been attracting attention. SPB's Graham sat down with the guys to find out what it was all about. Scene Point Blank: When reading through your bio ...
