Five of the best live surprises at Coachella 2015

Both weekends of Coachella are now in the bag for 2015, and while the rest of the world nurses their FOMO, those who were in the crowd are no doubt going through the laundry list of surprise guest appearances to try and pinpoint their favourite live moment at the festival. Thanks to Coachella - the global live stream of the festival - and, of course, social media, we got to witness some of these incredible, and genuinely unexpected, on-stage guest appearances. Here's five our our favourite:

the AU interview: Aluna Francis and George Reid of AlunaGeorge (London) talk Beyonce, Melbourne music and Beyond The Valley!

Skills for days and vibe that pays, Aluna Francis and George Reid melt together with an uncanny unison. The dynamic duo are brazenly putting a spin of their own on incandescent electro pop. Over the years, AlunaGeorge have steadily ascended with their standout R&B laced electronica, teaming catchy melodies with simple, but incredible production.

The Festival Diaries: The Governor's Ball in New York City (Part Three: Day Three, 2014)

Day three dawns and the sun gods have visited us again – time to get alarmed, because now we know New York will be haunted with rain, fog and mugginess for the weeks to come. Only two minutes in, Canadian's Half Moon Run have set the bar for the day, with smooth harmonies and a gracefulness that makes every instrument from drum to kazoo look like an elaborately choreographed move – more dancing than music-making.

AlunaGeorge

Aluna Francis, one half of British electro-pop duo AlunaGeorge, chats and laughs about writing music, playing weird shows, modeling and vintage cars ahead of her upcoming appearance at Parklife’s replacement boutique dance party, Listen Out.

Listen Out reveals first line up announcement!

It was unfortunately announced last week that there would be no more Parklife festival. Alas, there is something new to get excited about – Listen Out! Something to remember about Listen Out; it’s a dance party, not a festival, and it’s not to be missed.

The first line-up for the event has been announced:
Disclosure (LIVE)
Azealia Banks
TNGHT (LIVE)
Hudson Mohawke & Lunice
Duke Dumont
Alunageorge
Classixx (LIVE)
Miguel Campbell
John Talabot (LIVE)
Just Blaze

Album Review: Disclosure - Settle (2013 LP)

Disclosure are a ridiculously young and talented electronic duo from Britain. The two brothers started making music back in 2010 but 2012 was their year, striking gold with their remix of Jessie Ware’s “Running” and their breakthrough single, “Latch”. Since then, the whole electronic music community has been eagerly awaiting their debut album, Settle. Finally, it’s here – and my verdict? It exceeds expectations.
