“Do you love me like you used to?” Bethany Costenino wails on Do You Love Me Like You Used To, one of the tracks present on her brand new Best Coast album The Only Place. In the context of the song, the question is directed at a former lover, however it might be better served at the fans of her previous record – 2010’s Crazy For You.
Thrash metal blasted out of the ‘80s only to become an endangered species in the ‘90s despite the best efforts of the “Big Four” giants of the era. Bands like Melbourne’s 4Arm are working hard to keep the faith.
The previews from the Hilltop Hoods’ latest effort Drinking From The Sun - lead single I Love It and leaked track Rattling The Keys To The Kingdom – stood out as two of the best songs in the Adelaide trio’s acclaimed career, and seemed to indicate that the album would be an instant classic.
