The engaging stories and up-lifting melodies of folk music always make for an inviting night of live music. Take this, make a night of it, and host it in the increasingly popular Surry Hills bar The Soda Factory; you now have the new hang-out for a Wednesday night, and entry is completely free.
There’s a surprisingly smaller list of album releases announced this week. Though the ones that have been announced certainly create just as much excitement. Justice are releasing a live recording album from one of their concerts, heavywights Sleeping With Sirens have got a new one on the way, Wendy Matthews has returned from 12 years off, and Knife Party have a new EP! Plus there’s others too.

In less than a month, the city of Austin, Texas will be throwing open its doors to tens of thousands of music fans, industry officials and musicians for the annual SXSW music festival and conference. Amongst that number are over thirty Australian artists. Over the course of the next couple of weeks we'll be profiling these artists, offering a brief introduction to what they’re about and what they have to offer.
The extremely talented duo of Jordan Millar and Jack Carty are teaming up for a bit of a national tour to last through the next three months! The "Cold Lights on a Modern Life" tour will see the singer-songwriters bring their unique and intimate sets to venues all over Australia, sharing and embodying each artist's distinct style of performance. You'll get acoustic, blues, pop and so much more, you really need to get along just to find out!
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!
