Naarm-based musician Lewis Coleman's latest offering Offline is a collection of songs grounded in a desire to generate a current within stagnant and hopeless waters. It marks a significant departure from Colemans' previous, more brooding and introverted record Method of Places, and as he leans into a more confident, outward-facing aspect of himself, so too does Offline. It’s music replete with playful arrangements and kinetic opportunity and, as Coleman states, “songs that are hot, warm, saturated and fun”.

It may come as no surprise that at PBS we passionately believe in music as a moral law. It is because, as Plato wrote all these centuries ago, music ‘gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.’  

If music is where one finds what is good in the world, then it is our moral duty to support the good work of our all-too-human music makers. In a world that is becoming increasingly inundated with artificial creations, we find ourselves more committed to celebrating human ingenuity than ever before.

Strathbogie Forest on Taungurung land, in North East Victoria is an old growth forest and home to the endangered greater glider, powerful owl, and many more species of flora and fauna. The forest has been under threat from loggers for some time, and community organisation Save Our Strathbogie Forest stopped logging and established protection for the site a few years ago.
