…And You Know Us By The Trail Of Dead will return to Australia this May to perform in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. The shows will take place in two parts: a complete performance of what is arguably their best and most influential record - Source Tags & Codes (which the almighty Pitchfork awarded a perfect score of 10/10), followed by a set of highlights from their extensive back catalogue.
Sutherland based quintet Frankie & The Heartstrings return for a second helping of twee indie rock. This time they have enlisted the help of guitar wizard, ex-Suede member and Britpop legend Bernard Butler. The Days Run Away has been described as Frankie & The Heartstrings in pursuit of guitar pop perfection. Although a valiant effort it ultimately falls far short of its goal.
Sydney band the Bell Weather Department present their video for "Voodoo Hoodoo"! Self-described as the champions of their brand of 'kaleidoscopic rock and roll', the five-piece have produced a piece of music that is definitely slightly off-kilter, but catchy and easy on the ear as all heck.
Siamese Almeida out of Sydney have a track they want you all to be drawn in and seduced by. "Molasses & Sabbath" oozes funky vocals reminiscent of Garbage's Shirley Manson, while the guitar is powerful and makes you want to move.
That devilishly handsome lad that is Matt Corby has released a new single this morning in "Resolution". It's a promising taste of what audiences can be expecting from his forthcoming record and if you've yet to see the man himself perform on his current national tour, we'd recommend listening to this track to prepare yourself for the inevitable swoons.
This year's Come Together festival is set to bring some of Australia's best hip-hop artists, together as the Big Top at Sydney's Luna Park prepares to have a new one ripped. Featuring on this year's line up is Melbourne's own, Illy. The incredibly popular performer has dominated the scene nationally over the past few years and has one of the strongest and most loyal fan bases I've ever seen. It's been a while since we caught up, so I figured it was high time I flicked him some questions to see how studio life was treating him.
Living legend Bobby Womack lit up Hamer Hall with his first-ever Australian live concert in the company of his 13-piece band. Our photographer Serena Ho brings you the photos from this magical evening.
Ahead of their joint tour in the states, T.I has released a new track with long-time collaborator Lil' Wayne. Who went the hardest? We're thinking tip has this one.
The world-class stage of the Sydney Opera House will play host to a night of future-tinged electronic magic, as Sydney touring/management group Astral People takes over for a night of landmark mayhem at 9pm on Saturday June 1st.
The Beards are currently embarking on something of a world domination at present - spreading their bearded ethos to the uneducated and bringing more people in to their cult following. They present the first in a series of tour diaries for us back home to check out...
It doesn't get much better than spending your Sunday evening watching the sun fall on Sydney from the middle of the harbour. When it’s a floating Mexican Carnivale too, well you’re on to a winner!
Off the back of their brilliant 2010 debut album Gorilla Manor, Local Natives are back with their beautifully executed and haunting album Hummingbird. We caught them on the tour circuit at The Forum in Melbourne.
"Human Spring" is the title track of Buchanan's recently released debut album. The album has been created over a period of 18 months, while the band has been on the road, at home and abroad. They also have the song as a free download at their website: www.buchananband.com.
This new one from Flight Facilities will definitely get you moving. The production of this song took around two years, and features the beautiful vocals of DJ and vocalist Elizabeth Rose, singing such an infectious melody.
