Contributor series: Olga Bennett

When asked about herself, Olga Bennett humbly replied: "I'm a self taught melbourne based analogue photographer, who wastes too much time reading novels and going to gigs."

Olga's unobtrusive photographic style uses natural light to capture her subjects as naturally as possible. Last year she also self-published her beautiful book Environmentsphotographs documenting studio spaces of twelve creative people, most of them working in and around Melbourne

Olga photographed two of our featured Melbourne artists: Karla Way (Beaches) and Hazel Brown (Otouto). Here are a couple of her shots that we couldn't fit in the mag. We are so lucky to have her on board.

Marching to their own beat

Here's a sneak preview of the cover Issue 9, which features a gorgeous illustration by Rebecca ter Borg. Everything is coming together and we're all set to send this special music issue off to print next week. 

Our guest editor Sonya Nagels has hand picked a bunch of crazy and amazing muscians. We've got interviews with the likes of Tiny Ruins, Karla Way from Beaches, Eammon from Ghostwave, and Disasteradio just to name a few. We talk to the king of DIY touring who's just published his own guide to taking your band overseas. Rachel Rayner discovers a vinyl revival and Martha Goes Green shake up some rock 'n' roll cocktails.

There will only be 1000 individually numbered copies – so to ensure you get your very own copy, pre-order yours now at Felt or Big Cartel. Otherwise you can pick one up from one of our fabulous stockists.

Contributor series: Rebecca ter Borg

E.C. dropped in to visit Rebecca ter Borg in her studio on K Rd to ask her if she would illustrate the next cover of the magazine. And she agreed. Yes.

We've admired Rebecca's work since she was still a student at Massey in Wellington, a few years ago now. Her colourful illustrations are made up of  drawings, photographs, found imagery and collage. But what really draws you in is the charmingly delicate nature of her hand drawn line work. You can check out more of her work over at her website. 

Thanks for coming aboard Rebecca!
