Still on the road completing an Australian tour with a bunch of sold out shows, Andy Bull has had time to release a rework of “Just A Story” by Sydney artist Okenyo. It’s an upbeat dancey synth driven song which you can have a listen to here!

Live Review: Andy Bull + Cub Sport + Lanks - The Gov, Adelaide (16.04.15)

If you've been even a casual follower of Andy Bull's career over the past few years, you'll know that even when he's not on tour, he's the type of musician to always have something on the go, something creative is always ticking away. We saw it when he made his return with "Keep on Running" in 2013 after taking some time away from playing shows off the back of the Phantom Pains EP. It signalled a shift in his creative direction and yet, instead of isolating fans, it intrigued and went onto be demonstrative of a textured musicality and knack for pop songwriting.

Andy Bull began his national tour at The Gov in Adelaide. While the weather was wet and cold outside, inside was warm and cosy. Lanks and Cub Sport were great support acts. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to capture a few snaps.

Watch Thelma Plum, Andy Bull and members of Art vs Science cover Dan Sultan's "Kimberley Calling"

Talk about taking a great song and making it something even more special - Thelma Plum and Andy Bull - with the help of the Dans from Art vs Science managed to do just that, delivering a stunning cover of Dan Sultan's "Kimberley Calling" at the APRA Awards earlier this week in Sydney. The song was one of the five tracks nominated for Song of the Year. The award eventually went to Sia for "Chandelier" - though given this rendition, not to mention the original itself, we reckon he was robbed! Be prepared to play on repeat...

Live Review: The Doctor's Great Big F***ing Off Party - The Giant Dwarf, Sydney (11.12.14)

He’s spent about 6,100 hours on air, conducted roughly 3,520 interviews, achieved a Christmas Number 1 and had himself tattooed in the studio. After all of that, Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall is f***ing off. ABC luminaries and industry folk crammed into The Giant Dwarf theatre on a stormy afternoon to witness his second last ever show, his Great Big F***ing Off Party.
