"Music SA Munchkin- Nothing Has Changed Except For Everything EP Review"

This is a rewarding album. Its strength lies in its ability to mean so much to so many. It is reminiscent of Rush (or Pink Floyd) on an intellectual level. "Plus ca change plus c'est la meme chose" – The more that things change the more they stay the same," sings Geddy Lee. Nothing, has the same message, it is pseudo-intellectual Art School Rock straight from the Bauhaus. N.B! Let the joyous news be spread, Munchkin have arrived and they're intelligent, talented and addictive.

"Triple J Unearthed User Reviews"

Munchkin, Puzzled Secret (2005)

rating: 5/5

This is THE signature "single" that neatly defines what Munchkin are all about with an exceptionally catchy slinky chorus riff that damn near loops into your head like a sexy little tapeworm and wont let go, "I've gooot the secret.. and the seeeecret is meeee!" (yes, disturbing mental imagery comparing lead singer Kaliah to a tapeworm, I know!) brilliant guitars, stepping stone beats and slinky down tempo basslines accompanying a sexy as all hell vocal refrain.. this'd burn up any smokey lounge club in a pheremone haze :)

Munchkin, Behind Closed Doors (2005)

rating: 5/5

smooth.. soaring.. sweeping.. so haunting.. swaying side to side and sounding like it's crying dribbling tears over a horrible breakup.. oooh yeah, this song has it all.. such deep sadness.. and yet, such funky little electro grooves that make you wanna sing along and feel like yer not alone in the world (the goofy robot voice is a bit much tho'.. hmmmmm)

Love the music as soon as i heard it. This is only one of many many great songs by this band and they sound as good - if not better when they play live. Kaliah has an awesome voice and she uses it well in all of Munchkin's songs. I hope this band gets played more on the radio so that other people have the chance to enjoy their music as much as i have.

Munchkin, God Is A Terrorist (2005)

Dale venting about life, the universe and everything in between

rating: 5/5

This song has always been a favourite of mine, as it's so different from the rest of their EP (it'd be really cool if they did more like this for their upcoming album). Featuring vocals by guitarist Dale (with Kaliah and Geddy providing creeped out backing), this is an exceptionally eerie and brooding downtempo groove reminiscent of SNEAKER PIMP's "BLOODSPORT" album in vibe. Pity it's so short tho'..

"SAYF FEATURED ARTISTS"

SAYF'S FEATURED ARTISTS

Word on the street is that Munchkin - SAYF's inaugural Featured Artists - is on the verge of releasing its latest new single "Sometime After Midnight". We here at SAYF have had the honour of getting a "pre-hearing" and it has our thumbs up.

SAYF Vice President Anthony Seagrim had this to say - "This single will launch the band well beyond their 2005 state-wide successes, perhaps even taking them fully on to the national level. The brilliance and depth of their honed writing, production and performance skills are just so evident now. It is a fantastic teaser for their new upcoming album 'Deny You're Here'."

Munchkin
Submitted by thehittmann on Sun, 2005-06-19 05:04.
Genre: Beats, Jazz, HipHop, Electronica, Pop

Formed in march 2004, Munchkin fuse elements of electronica and pop into their own unique style, their debut album "nothing has changed except for everything" is a journey through various shades of darkness and light. The music is written by bassist/programmer Geddy who provides the canvas and outlines for vocalist kaliah and guitarist/producer Dale to fill in the colours. In the past, Geddy has toured successfully around Australia with his last band BARCODE who also released the successful EP "killing the boy". Kaliah has just returned from three years of travelling around europe and asia where she performed in various locations. Dale has finished his audio diploma and has started a company called "EVOLUTION AUDIO".

Munchkin also welcome into the fold Nathan Barnes ex Circle Clan on keys and samples, Nathan brings his extensive knowledge of fat beats to the group and is an exciting development for the future. In 2005, munchkin will promote their new album by gigging and touring, their live shows are emotional and intense but at the same time they never take themselves too seriously.
