the AU interview: Andrew Szekeres of Midnight Juggernauts (Melbourne) talks Aerials EP and Beyond The Valley

the AU sat down and had a good long chat with Andrew Szekeres of Midnight Juggernauts ahead of their Beyond The Valley performance. Besides their new EP Aerials and collaboration for all proceeds of the EP to go to the Aboriginal benefits Foundation, we got talking about Google Maps’ slow loading time and even strange instruments of the sixties. Of all the things to discuss Andrew had some great comments on travel, music and what’s in store for Midnight Juggernauts.

Sugar Mountain Festival bringing everyone from Nas to Ariel Pink to Melbourne

After taking a year off, Melbourne's Sugar Mountain festival is back, bringing with it a massive expansion which will see a great range of artists perform on the day. Now bigger than the shoes built or it, the event will be moving from it's traditional venue of The Forum Theatre to the Victorian College of Arts (VCA) in Southbank, and it will certainly be needing the space with an ambitious line-up of music and visual artists planned.

Live Review: Solange + Movement + Juggernaut DJs - Metro Theatre, Sydney (08.01.14)

Solange Knowles now is a far cry from the Solange the world heard in 2002; that meagre, radio-friendly R&B protégé who had a (forgettable) semi-hit with N.O.R.E ("Feelin You Part II") and a lacklustre debut LP. Since 2008, something pretty great happened; Solange ventured in a completely different direction than Solo Star, digging through the crates, blending vintage and contemporary R&B into one of the year’s most underrated releases - Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. She was breaking out of any postured pop-mould and creating a lane entirely for herself; a lane completely distinctive from that of her older sister (the comparisons are unfortunately inevitable).

Live Review: Midnight Juggernauts + Fascinator + Es Ist Super - Uni Bar, Adelaide (13.09.13)

Midnight Juggernauts have made a distinctive mark on the Australian indie-electro-pop scene since their release of their prolific debut Dystopia in 2007, so my expectations were pretty high for Friday night's gig at Uni Bar, the last of their Uncanny Valley album tour.

Live Review: FBi Radio Turns 10 - Carriageworks, Sydney (08.09.13)

FBi Radio is such a massive part of Sydney’s music scene. They support upcoming musicians with incredible passion and enthusiasm, and have been doing so for an entire decade! To celebrate double digits, FBi threw a massive fundraising music festival to celebrate, and the killer combination of a great venue with an assortment of fantastic Sydney bands and DJs made this undoubtedly the coolest 10th birthday party ever.

Live Review: Midnight Juggernats + Kirin J Callinan + Fascinator - Metro Theatre (16.08.13)

They need no introduction to discerning lovers of Australian music; this dance-rock trio have made a big enough name for themselves to ensure a loyal following, and hibernated long enough to make us miss the hell of them.

Before they go on their national tour, we spoke in depth to them about the new album; the making of the album, the changes in style, the inspirations on the record, as well as the innovative clip for 'Memorium' and how their music is going over in Europe and South America.
