Hello and welcome back to our weekly wrap of music industry shenanigans that have happened around Australia (and the world). It’s been a few sleepy weeks with Santa bringing all kinds of things for everyone. Everyone seems to now be busily making tunes or wheeling’ deals again, so let’s get into the thick of things.
This week: ARIA action for 2012 and in the last week, more Australian acts announced for SXSW, and a new crowd-funding site specifically for musicians to fund albums, projects and videos.
Some great Australian and New Zealand talent have been announced as featuring on this year's SXSW line up, as the festival reveals its third wave artist announcement. This bunch of artists brings the total of participating musicians for SXSW 2013 to a whopping 1300...and still counting.
Check out the Aussie/NZ contingent below and congratulations!

Dead Letter Circus
Dead Letter Circus continue on their East Coast summer tour, ever so kindly gracing Wollongong with their presence. There’s no exaggerating that the band are somewhat favourites around here, with a strong crowd showing up to witness a great night of live music.
This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
This years Festival Of The Sun saw itself through with brilliant weather and plenty of crowd pleasers. Held at the Sundowner Tourist Park at Port Macquarie’s Breakwall Beach, the festival stage was about 50m from the shoreline and the ground full of sand – genius construction as feet on this terrain are able to dance wilder and stand stronger through performances.
Big Day Out fans were given something to get excited about when the festival released timetables, local band line ups and more for the 2013 installment! Along with this announcement, the Big Day Out is also thrilled to announce that the Lilypad will be making its return, and there will also be a brand new stage at all festival stops - the Red Stage.
Check out the additions to each leg of the Big Day Out below!
In this issue: Dead Letter Circus play one last show before heading to India, Andy White and Kavisha Mazzella perform at Flying Saucer Club, The Griswolds announce EP launch and more!

Dead Letter Circus have spent the past 18 months touring in the USA and the UK. Now they’re back and ready to test out their new material from their upcoming album.
After touring the United Kingdom and the United States, Dead Letter Circus are back in Australia and are touring their new material in December.
Dead Letter Circus lived onsite in the Loose Stones studios on the Gold Coast to record the follow up to their chart topping debut album “This is the Warning.”
Dead Letter Circus have been one busy troupe this year, writing and recording their second album, as well as playing a number of gigs and festivals this year, including headlining Festival of the Sun. In the lead up summer, the AU Review's Rachel Sibley asked a few questions of drummer Luke Williams to find out exactly what the band has been up to.
In this issue: Festival Of The Sun tickets are on sale, Big Day Out offers people the option to pay for their tickets installments, Meredith sells out for another year and more!
