the AU interview: Talking cars, new tunes and plans for 2015 with Bliss n Eso (Sydney)

What are you doing this New Year's Day? Recovering from the big night before? Perhaps you're still planning on partying through. Or maybe, like thousands of mad rev-heads, you're going to be making the pilgrimage to Canberra for the annual Summernats car festival. Much like the Clipsal 500 is in Adelaide, Summernats draws quite the number of car lovers out for an intense automotive love in. And, like Clipsal, Summernats' live music line up is also a big drawcard for many recent attendees. This year, Bliss n Eso, Illy, The Radiators and Havana Brown will be on entertainment duties and we've got no doubt they'll be getting the job done to a tee.

Album Review: Mind Over Matter - This Way to Elsewhere (2014 LP)

Highly underrated Sydney hip-hop duo (now a trio) Mind Over Matter have been rapping their hearts out for six years now, always proving clever songwriters and rhythmic rhymers in the process. They have supported the biggest names in Australian hip-hop, yet never seem to have climbed to the level of popularity which hosts acts like Bliss N Eso and Hilltop Hoods. Their latest LP This Way to Elsewhere begs the question of why, serving as a showcase of success long overdue.

Album Review: Illy - Cinematic (2013 LP)
