ARCADE FIRE

Arcade Fire's 'The Reflektor Tapes' to hit theatres worldwide this September and they release new video for 'Porno"

The first look trailer for the first feature film about Grammy award winning band Arcade Fire has just been released and it's so short it will leave you wanting more. The Reflektor Tapes provides an insight into the making of the band's critically acclaimed 2013 album Reflektor, documenting their creative journey.

Single Stream: Montgomery cover Arcade Fire's "Wake Up" (2014)

We have heard many Arcade Fire covers over time, but “Wake Up” is one that Queensland’s Montgomery truly makes her own. You could quite easily mistake it for being her original, it is that good. Authentic and dreamy, Montgomery’s serene vocals are further strengthened the slow pulsating beats and layered synths, making for quite an emotive and alluring rendition.

New Music Video: Arcade Fire "You Already Know" (2014)

Taken from their critically acclaimed new record Reflektor, Canadians Arcade Fire have released their fourth video taken from the release, "You Already Know" - which features, among other great moments, an audio introduction from UK talk show host Jonathan Ross. The typically trippy clip can be viewed here. Watch out for those pink eyes...

We've already covered some of the smaller stages at the event, as well as our discoveries, but as for the rest, Bruce Springsteen wasn't the only highlight among the main stages during the three days I was at the festival. Let's kick things off with another of the five bands we recommended to catch at the event, Alabama Shakes, who briefly popped out from their recording sessions to deliver some shows in North America.

Willow Wood's top 5 moments from Coachella 2014

A few weekends since one of the world's biggest music festivals has passed, but the waves made during Coachella aren't receding anytime soon. Held near L.A, the festival is convenient for many of the biggest names of the music industry to get to, making for sets full of surprise appearances, and a line up which inspires artists to put on some of the best performances of their career.

This weekend, the AU returns to New Orleans to cover Jazz Fest for the event's second weekend of 2014, and our second time covering the event (look back on our coverage two years ago).

Courtney Barnett & Jagwar Ma join HUGE Glastonbury 2014 lineup!

Oh Glastonbury, why you gotta be such an enticing minx every year? The legendary British festival (already sold out, duh), has released its first line up of artists and if you're living on this side of the globe, you're probably feeling a huge case of FOMO.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Arena Joondalup, Perth (02.02.14)

Big Day Out and Perth have had a pretty strained relationship in recent years, with venue changes, reduced line-ups and poor ticket sales. This year was no different, with Blur dropping out, and continued tensions between organisers and local councils prompting a last minute change in venues and the announcement by AJ Maddah that it would be the last time the event would come to Perth.

Arcade Fire

Many in the Big Day Out crowd braved the afternoon heat to secure a spot for Arcade Fire's set. They were wise to do so, as it was a glorious experience. Singing, Dancing, Paper Mache heads and Confetti. Their set had it all. I have no doubt that for many, this was the highlight of the day.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Bonython Park, Adelaide (31.01.14)

You know you're in for a hard time when you check the weather as you leave your house at 10am and it's already heading towards the 30 degree mark. No city does a summer heatwave quite like Adelaide, but if 2014 was going to be the last year the Big Day Out stopped by this area of the country, I didn't want to reflect on it sitting at home.

Photo Gallery: Arcade Fire - Qantas Credit Union Arena, Sydney (28.01.14)
