Many of you will probably have heard of this project by now, and it is certainly a remarkable proposition; Rewiggled: A Tribute to the Wiggles gathers together twenty of Australia’s most popular artists from the last ten years and has each of them tackle a song from the catalogue of the world’s most popular children’s group.

Live music is back on your telly with the return of a huge 12 week concert series: triple j presents
Every Tuesday on ABC2, triple j presents will give you front row seats to some of the hottest gigs in town. The series kicks off tonight with Cut Copy taking their synths and strobes to the massive Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.
Architecture In Helsinki lit up the Forum on Saturday with an abundantly fun performance in support of their latest album Moment Bends.
I was at the Metro Theatre and whoa behold, Cut Off Your Hands was opening for Architecture In Helsinki. Awesome.
After an enormous tour all over the globe, gallivanting through Europe, the States and back again, Architecture In Helsinki finally do some shows in Sydney.
In the seven short years of its existence, the J Awards have gained a reputation for earmarking the best talent this country has to offer. Nominees are selected on quality and what defined that year in music, the awards are widely recognised as a stamp of excellence. Developing emerging Australian artists is a key component of what triple j is and the J Awards embody that philosophy.
Architecture in Helsinki are a Melbourne pop band that have just released their fourth studio album, Moment Bends. I had a chat to Cameron Bird, the frontman of the five piece, about everything happening with them this year.
Hi Cameron, how are you?
That's good! So, it's been four months since the release of Moment Bends. How has the reception for the album been?
It’s been a big couple of weeks for Architecture in Helsinki. They arrived home from a two-month tour abroad taking in North America, UK & Europe right before touching down to play a transcendent homecoming set at this years Splendour in the Grass Festival at Woodfordia, QLD.
Drawing an immense crowd that overflowed the Mix Up tent way past capacity, the show was one of the band’s favourite live experiences of all time.
