Swampland Issue 02

Swampland Issue 02


After launching a celebrated debut issue late last year, Swampland is back with a cracking issue two.

Founded as a reaction against the click-bait-driven state of contemporary music journalism, the independent print publication offers intelligent, long-form coverage of Australian music—and features stories that can’t be found anywhere else.

Issue 02 goes across the map and into the vaults to offer a wideranging selection of Australian narratives.

Tiarney Miekus discusses the legacy of Essendon Airport and the Clifton Hill Community Music Centre; Triana Hernandez sits down for an extended conversation with electronic duo HABITS; Patrick Emery records the early days of Spencer P Jones; Richard En explores the history of a beloved Perth punk venue; Marcus Whale and Rainbow Chan discuss music and Asian-Australian identity; Walter Marsh visits northern Adelaide hip-hop up-and-comers Playback 808; Jack Mannix talks to Melbourne-based electronic artist EN.V; and Alex Griffin ponders the bush ballads of Emlyn Johnson.
