Best of 2014 Countdown: Best 40 Australian Albums of the Year

Earlier this month we revealed our top 40 albums of 2014, which included 14 albums from Australia (including The Smith Street Band as our number one!). As we did last year, however, we want to make sure as many Australian albums are highlighted as possible! So, we've gone back to our list of votes from AU's fine contributors and put together a list of the top 40 Australian albums (LPs and EPs both eligible) of 2013!

Reflecting on The Aussie BBQ at CMJ 2014 in New York City!

Dear Australian Friends, Remember me? I'm your long lost Aussie lady who you used to love, who moved away four years ago and now knows nothing of the Great Southern Land. The country where I live now is strange. They don't even know how to make barbies. It's like, chuck some snags on there and they look at me like I'm weird and then suggest putting on shrimp. It's confusing.

Live Review: Biffy Clyro + Calling All Cars - HQ, Adelaide (09.09.14)

Biffy Fucking Clyro. Biffy FUCKING Clyro. It's an odd feeling being in a room as small as HQ tonight, generally regarded these days as being one of Adelaide's best venues for live music, given the band's international status. The crowd isn't the largest I've seen the venue operate with, but it didn't matter tonight - when Biffy Clyro return to play bigger venues sometime in the future, I know I can say I'd seen something special tonight.

Live Review: Biffy Clyro + Calling All Cars - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (05.09.14)

The release of "Mountains" in 2008 made Biffy Clyro a household name in the UK. A year later, Only Revolutions was released and the group was catapulted to festival headliner status, famously headlining the Reading and Leeds Festivals over Nine Inch Nails, much to the chagrin of Trent Reznor. If you hadn't been paying attention it may have seemed like they had come out of nowhere.

Live Review: Kingswood + Calling All Cars - Manning Bar, Sydney (20.03.14)

When Kingswood and Calling All Cars get together, you know it's going to be a big one. This gig featured special guests, a lot of crowd participation, and lead singers sharing their alcohol. Amongst all the craziness, there were a lot of rocking tunes. It was a great night and a gig to be remembered.

Calling All Cars set for the 'Raise the People' national tour.

They may be relocating to the UK in 2014, but Calling All Cars are making sure Australian crowds don't forget their high energy shows, with the announcement of an extensive national tour March, April and May!
