Live Review: Kiasmos + Rachel Claudio + Basic Mind + More - The Rosemount Hotel, Perth (26.09.15)

Perth was a hive of activity this weekend past. There were two football finals; two festivals, Wave Rock Weekender and Listen Out Festival, plus the usual selection of weekend gigs. Saturday night also saw Icelandic techno duo Kiasmos play their first West Australian show at The Rosemount Hotel.

Icelandic minimal techno masters Kiasmos announce Australian tour

While here as part of both Melbourne Festival and Brisbane Festival, Iceland's experimental techno wizards Kiasmos - the duo of Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen - will be taking their live show around Australia, and for once, Sydney is strangely missing out. Their exploratory music and wicked audiovisual live show has been in high-demand ever since they began showcasing their artfully understated, atmosphere-heavy music with brilliant 2012 EP Thrown.

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.
