CUT COPY

Hot Chip, Dirty Three, Courtney Barnett & more announced for Sugar Mountain 2016!

Before the weekend, Le1f was the first name leaked/revealed for Melbourne's Sugar Mountain festival, quickly indicating that the organisers had another vibrant and eclectic line up in store. This morning, they've gone and announced the full line up of artists, musicians and individuals set to take part in the event next January at the VCA and Melbourne Arts Precinct!

Laura Marling, The Fall, Kiasmos and more featuring on Melbourne Festival's 30th anniversary music program!

The 2015 Melbourne Festival announcement has arrived today and in celebrating 30 years, the program is indeed reflective of a well-loved and respected event on the Australian arts calendar. From highly anticipated live shows from the likes of Laura Marling and The Fall, through to a brilliantly cast tribute performance to Patti Smith's Horses, the Melbourne Festival this year is going to have people talking for sure.

the AU interview: Dan Whitford of Cut Copy (Melbourne) talks Oceans Apart, the Melbourne scene, and more

Legends of the game and general movers and shakers, Cut Copy have been doing it right for the better part of ten years now. The Melbourne group have garnered some well deserved admiration overseas, touring the world, seeing, hearing, tasting what else is on offer. Realising that Australian music has got it going on (in a big way), front man and all round good guy Dan Whitford decided that documenting Australia’s feverncy and talent for producing brilliant music was a sheer necessity. We had a chat to the man himself about the Oceans Apart compilation, learning to play instruments under pressure and the integrated nature of the Melbourne music scene.

Album News Weekly: 5th November 2014

In This Issue: This week is big, the closer we get to the end of the year the more artists are surprising us with new releases ahead of Summer tours and festivals. This issue sees both ends of the compilation works with electronic legends Cut Copy and a Melbourne 70's rock tribute album, a couple of WA hometown upstarts, and Queen Bey herself. A lot of pop, rock, dance fun ahead for this month.

Single Stream: No Zu "Raw Vis Vision" (2014)

You need some more funky disco in your life, especially when it has made it's way onto a carefully curated compilation by Aussie treasures Cut Copy. The Melbourne wizards are set to release Oceans Apart in November, a compilation album full of tracks hand picked and mixed by the unstoppable band. Our first taste comes in the form of "No Vis Vision" by fellow Melbourne locals No Zu, and it's one big psych-disco trip, the kind you'll be making up dance moves to all summer festival season.

Festival Review: Lollapalooza (Day Two) ft. The Temper Trap + Grouplove + Foster the People + Outkast - Grant Park, Chicago (02.08.14)

Day Two of Lolla started later for a lot of people, I gathered, with Friday night's aftershow/party antics continuing well on into the early hours of Saturday morning. Nursing a Red Bull, I arrived back at Grant Park on Saturday afternoon to a party which was already well cranked.

The Aussies of Lollapalooza 2014: From Flume to the John Butler Trio, a look at who's flying the flag in Chicago.

While we're coming down from Splendour weekend, we turn our eyes now to the next massive festival some of the same artists will be leaving Byron Bay to prepare for this week, Lollapalooza. Arguably one of the biggest festivals on the calendar, Lollapalooza has gone from being a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction back in the 90s to one of the hottest festivals held in the US, Chile, Brazil and in 2014 now, Argentina. the AU will be on ground at Grant Park this weekend bringing you coverage from the three day festival but before then, we take a look at the Australian contingent of artists set to perform in 2014.

Festival Review: Primavera Sound 2014 ft. The National + Cut Copy + Haim and more! - Barcelona, Spain (28 to 31.05.14)

For people travelling or living in Europe it can often be a hard decision on which festivals to attend over the Summer? You are spoiled for choice with festivals every weekend, each having insane line ups and being held at amazing venues. Allow me to supply one such festival for your consideration: last weekend was the annual Primavera Sound festival held in the ‘sunny’ (extremely rainy) Barcelona, Spain.

Live Review: Cut Copy + Touch Sensitive - The Metro Theatre, Sydney (08.05.14)

Everything about Touch Sensitive oozes style and polish, with just a thin veneer of sleaze. The salacious funk of 'Slowments', which opened the night sets the tone for the remainder of the night. It’s glistening craft unravelling across the seven minute run time. A great start, marred by the sound clipping that frequently affected Michael Di Francesco live bass.
