The site is well-known for its probing think-pieces, long- and short-form reviews, insightful features, track-by-track album guides and ‘Icons’ profiles featuring interviews with underground luminaries.</p>

<p>“We hope the opportunity to write for Australia’s alternative music community, without the word count and style constraints of print media, will attract writers and photographers who might be traditional journalists by day but avid music bloggers by night.”</p>
<p>Mess+Noise’s stable of music contributors already includes leading Australian writers, performers and photographers such as: Chris Johnston, Andrew Ramadge, Dave Graney, Dom Alessio, Guy Blackman, Daniel Boud, Craig Mathieson, Shaun Prescott and Peter Ottery.</p>

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
