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.
Hip Hop, electronic, dance artist M.I.A put on a great show at The Enmore Theatre, supported by Sam And The Womp, a three piece electro-dance group and DJ Nina Las Vegas. Photography by Sabina Rysnik.
Adelaide heated up as a slew of local and international artists swept through the city for the Summadayze Festival on New Year's Eve 2012. Mark Davies was there for the AU and brings you the following party snaps!
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.
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.
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'.
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.
As we've been going through the top 40 tracks and albums of the year, I thought we should take some time out to recognise some of the best music videos of 2010.
Hi, I'm Mark Dragham. And welcome to my new blog, exclusive to the AU review! Whenever I find some tracks I like, I'll send em over to you for download or stream! And sometimes they'll just be links to other blogs. But in any case, keep your eyes peeled for some sweet tracks, and I hope you enjoy!
The opening bars of this song takes me straight back to my Goldeneye days on Nintendo 64. It sounds uncannily like the backing of the Bond music used in those games, minus the trademark 007 melody, the sounds of guns being fired and proximity mines exploding.
