Scene News: New album from The Nature Strip

Beetle Bones is the culmination of nearly ten years of pop and roll exploration and the third full-length album from Sydney’s The Nature Strip. Their sound might be best summed up as a collision between 1960s guitar jangle on the cusp of psychedelia and the concise, assertive, and sometimes experimental pop statements of new wave and post-punk.

Recipe Scene: Sticky Peanut Butter Pecan Buns

I adore peanut butter – love it in savoury satay sauces, sweet things or just straight form the jar. This recipe comes from the cookbook The Ultimate Peanut Butter Book. I’ve changed the dough recipe to make it quicker, and they put raisins in the filling. Feel free to do so, but I felt there was enough going on without adding them. You can use crunchy or smooth peanut butter, I favour smooth. These buns smell divine as they are baking, and are best eaten while still slightly warm with the deliciously sticky topping running down the sides. […]
