Acclaimed band Lowrider are are back, and set to unveil their third studio album ‘Black Stones’ this Saturday at The Depot. Ahead of the much anticipated release, Soph and Seb spoke to drummer Paul about the album and how their sound has and continues to evolve.

Taylor and Tom joined Soph and Seb in the studio to talk the launch of their EP ‘Thinly Veiled’ at the Crown and Anchor this Saturday.
Cameron Smith from Brisbane instrumental band Ghost Notes is no stranger to Adelaide, which is apparently his most frequented tour destination across many bands and projects. Danni and Walter spoke to him about his favourite venues, running live venues and studios in Brisbane and re-releasing Ghost Notes’ 2011 debut album as a vinyl double LP.
After the success of Sydney duo The Presets’ 2008 release Apocalypso, it would’ve been easy to keep the ball rolling while on such a high. But amidst the unexpected rise to fame came another challenge for both Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes: parenthood. Both decided it was best to step away from the limelight and spend time with their new families, and this decision certainly inspired a number of ideas that formed third album Pacifica. The Range spoke to drummer Moyes from Canberra, where the group were preparing for an Australia Day concert, and found out about some of the more sinister yet optimistic themes gathered in Pacifica, and how these might translate to the band’s new live show.
The Presets play at HQ on Tuesday February 5, with tickets still available.
If you’ve not heard of local group SuperCaine, it’s probably because they are about as fresh as a band can get. Whilst the project has only been up and running for a couple of months, they are in the finishing stages of recording and already looking towards a launch. The whirlwind group of established Adelaide musicians dropped in for a chat with Seb and Sophie, giving us a sneak peak of what to expect from the lads in the coming months.
After almost 2 years, the young and incredibly talented Bearded Gypsy Band are set to release a live album this Thursday at The Gov.

The Peoples Choice Classic kicked of the festival of cycling in Adelaide with a brilliant show at the East End street circuit. The 15th tour down under rolled into action with the Women’s criterion which was in a 45 minute plus two lap’s format. With the women’s track training camp in Adelaide this week, there was some great racing to warm up the 108,000 strong crowd!
The main race was a spectacle right from the start, with Radioshack Leopard Trek rider Jens Voigt and UniSA local boy Zak Dempster leading out on a massive break away which got out to over a minute at one stage. It sure got the crowds pumped for the first UCI Pro Tour race of the season!
In the end, the peloton found some pace and wound the pair back in with 8 laps to go. You could see Lotto-Belesol, Orica-Greenedge and Radioshack Leopard Trek were planning big moves, but it was “The Giant”, Andre Greipel that took it out on the line from Matt Goss and team mate Greg Henderson.
On the show we spoke to Orica GreenEdge rider Simon Clarke about the race and the year ahead, Ashlee Ankudinoff and Isabella King from the women’s race, and to lots of enthralled spectators enjoying the perfect Adelaide weather for the People’s Choice Classic.
Monday is a rest day, with first stage of the Tour leaving Prospect, finishing at Lobethal. We’ll bring you all the details from the days event plus more in our next edition!
Danish trio Efterklang have been kicking about since the turn of the millennium, and as lead singer Caspar Clausen told The Range, the band has begun thinking about how things have changed in music circles 12 years down the track. For their 4th album, Piramida, the band stepped right out of their comfort zone, and found a whole gamut of new sounds in places they may never have dreamed of visiting, as you will find out. Sam began the interview by cheekily asking Caspar if he was jealous of our seasonally-warm weather. You can stream the interview below.
