This Friday sees the talented MT Warning release his much talked about EP, Petrified Heart.

Live Review: Circa Waves + Mt Warning - Newtown Social Club, Sydney (29.07.14)

Back in 2006 in England you could go down to your local Barfly venue on most nights and see a band like Circa Waves. They may not have been at the same standard, but there were a wealth of fresh faced young boys playing spiky guitar pop. They have since been replaced by a wave of synth playing dance groups, so it was refreshing when the spiky riffs of 'Stuck in My Teeth' first spilt out from Triple J. A killer riff with a great hook that carried a sense of emergency and lyrics brimming with youthful anxiety. Their headline show, the only of the tour which didn’t pull a sold out crowd, certainly earmarked them as ones to watch for the future.

Splendour Spotlight: 12 of our favourite performances from Splendour In The Grass 2014

The sound waves from Splendour In The Grass 2014 will be felt for a while, especially on a national scale as some of the weekend's greatest performances came from locals who took full advantage of the massive platform. Special anniversary performances from OutKast and Spiderbait, an emotional set from The Jezabels, and sets from Violent Soho and Phantogram, amongst others, really kicked things up a notch for Splendour, giving punters one of the best additions of the annual event. Chris was on ground to run around the festival and witness just some of these great performances; here are 10 of his favourites. Unfortunately, he is but one person, so much talked about sets from the likes of Childish Gambino, Hilltop Hoods, Tune-Yards, REMi and Angus & Julia Stone are not included.

Live Review: Gang of Youths + Mt Warning - Newtown Social Club, Sydney (16.05.14)

Mt Warning are a bloody hard band to hate. Front man Mikey Bee is so upbeat and expressive, espousing the joys of music and life in general that you can’t help but get behind him. Their songs may generally follow the structure of starting off a bit slow and then getting quicker, louder and more expressive as they climax. They are executed with vim and enthusiasm and Bee has a lovely tenor to his voice that carry them.

Live Review: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros + MT Warning - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (10.04.14)

If you were to look up Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros in the dictionary, you probably wouldn't find anything special (believe me, I checked). However, what should be written is something along the lines of "Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros: noun. A ten piece band indie-folk band from California who happen to put on one hell of a live performance. Synonyms: radiant, talented, vibrant, exceptional." But even that wouldn't do them justice.

SXSW Live Review: The Aussie BBQ presented by Sounds Australia - Maggie Mae's (15.03.14)

Undoubtedly one of the biggest, if not the biggest, events of my SXSW calendar had to be the Aussie BBQ. Taking over Maggie Mae's on Saturday, a staggering amount of Australian artists were divided up over three stages inside the venue, set to fly the flag and let the Americans know how good Australia is having it right now as a music and creative industry.

Festival Review: St Jermone's Laneway Festival - Sydney College of Arts (02.02.14)

Floral headpieces and loud button-ups painted the grounds of the Sydney College of Arts in Rozelle for St Jerome's Laneway Festival. It was the type of highly likeable festival atmosphere that it is all too rare nowadays, and even with the event selling out, those who wanted their space could easily seek out a private patch of grass where they could still enjoy the abundance of music on offer.
