Music Video of the Day: Fait Accompli "Born Free" (M.I.A. Cover) (2015)

Street artist Anthony Lister (better known as just "Lister") has directed a music video for Sydney band Fair Accompli. Though the single is a cover - of M.I.A's "Born Free" - the video is unsurprisingly original. And it's a superb reimagining of the song to boot. Enjoy our music video of the day, here, and then read on to see where the band are touring next:

Elizabeth Rose, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Oscar Key Sung amongst those confirmed for CMW in May!

With additional headlines and frontrunning bands still to be announced, CMW (Canadian Music Week) has reveal a great mix of Canadian locals and international visitors who are set to perform in Toronto this May. There are a great round of Australians headed over, including Elizabeth Rose, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Oscar Key Sung, who were recently announced alongside the likes of M.I.A, City and Colour and Tegan and Sara.

Live Review: M.I.A + Sam and the Womp + Nina Las Vegas - Enmore Theatre (04.01.13)

M.I.A pulled through Sydney while in Australia for a round of festival appearances, and while she wasn’t on any festival line ups in NSW, managed to treat the city to a show of her own.

2013 Summadayze Line Up Announced; The Chemical Brothers, M.I.A to Headline!

Summadayze has been rcognised as one of the country's best NYE festivals and it isn't hard to see why. Year after year, the festival has brought some of the best international acts to Australia and has provided the opportunity for some brilliant local talent to do their thing on stages across the country, to some of the biggest festival crowds Australia has been known to produce.

SebastiAn - Total (2011 LP)

It surprised me a bit that this is the masterful SebastiAn’s debut album – some of his older productions like the chaotic “Ross Ross Ross” have been popular in nightclubs around the world for quite a few years. None the less, SebastiAn’s Total is here and it does its best to fill the void left by the fact that we haven’t really gotten many big French-electro releases since Justice’s Cross in 2007.

Compliation Album: Punk Goes Pop III (2010 LP)

I don't particularly understand the driving point of these constant, seemingly ubiquitous 'Punk Goes Pop' releases. They don't do these mash-up crossovers with many other genres, do they? I am yet to see 'Tekkers goes Grindcore 6' or 'Baroque goes Drone 4'.

Big Day Out 2011 - Gold Coast Parklands (23.01.11)

After Queensland's recent spate of continuous rain and devastating flooding, it was refreshing to find a day of sunshine awaiting in preparation for Big Day Out Gold Coast 2011.
