Album Review: Band of Horses - Acoustic at the Ryman (2014 LP)

There are two things that are almost guaranteed once your band reaches a certain degree of career trajectory – a live album and a Greatest Hits release.

Feature: Splendour 2013 speculation - who will or won't perform?

Will they or won’t they? While we will never be sure who is playing a festival until the promoters actually release a line-up, it’s always fun to speculate and throw around any rumours that come up. The next big festival yet to announce their line-up is Splendour In The Grass. With the line-ups for Primavera, Summersonic and Coachella festivals already out there, it’s time to salivate over who will may (or have already actually confirmed) continue down here fore Australia’s premier winter festival.

Live Review: Big Day Out - Flemington Racecourse (26.01.13)

Boasting names such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Animal Collective and Foals it was clear that the Big Day Out had bounced back from the bad run it had last year where half the tour got truncated versions of the event. This year, every show boasted the full lineup which was promising for the future of the event given the recent hurdles it has had to overcome.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Royal Adelaide Showgrounds (25.01.13)

There was a definite change of mood about the Showgrounds this year. It’s obvious upon one’s first scout about the festival site that the Big Day Out just doesn’t function properly in the stripped back capacity it did last year. With both main stages back in action, the El Jimador wrestling ring and Chow Town being new shiny drawcards for punters and the sheer force of the line-up this year, the Big Day Out experience people will buy tickets for actually seemed to be in operation for this, the 2013 edition.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Adelaide turned on some fantastic weather for the 2013 Big Day Out. With another amazing line-up this year, the fans enjoyed a day of great music and the AU review's photographer, Kerrie Geier, was there to capture it all.

Live Review: Band of Horses + Mike Noga and the Gentlemen of Fortune - Palais Theatre (23.01.13)

The Palais is a majestic theatre harking back to yesteryear, with well worn seating, and a musty smell permeating the room. Shows at the Palais are often devoid of the incessant chatter that continues whilst bands play a pub show. Indeed Mike Noga makes mention of this when he says, 'You’re quiet and you make me nervous', to the silent punters, encouraging some cheers from the crowd and draws a grateful 'Thank you' from Mike.

Live Review: Band of Horses - Enmore Theatre (22.01.13)

Taking to the stage of Enmore Theatre on Tuesday night, Band of Horses played a superb, rock-solid set. As a five piece based in Charleston, South Carolina, Band of Horses blend their vibrant indie rock energy with a spine-tingling level of emotion, drawing upon country and folk influences. Combining the soaring, unique vocals of lead singer Ben Bridwell with thriving riffs, the band had the audience hooked from start to finish.
