Festival Review: Listen Out - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (04.10.15)

Listen Out has come back doing the rounds, the lineup having some fan favourites as well as the Red Bull Music Academy stage coming back to bring young talent. This year the festival was simplified to two stages; this idea of festivals becoming smaller and more manageable continues to prove popular amongst music fans. It seems making it easier and thus cheaper encourages fans to come along. Gone are the days of big extravagant festivals with five or six different stages. In this case, Listen Out offered two stages, Atari and the 909 stage; Atari was outdoors under the huge big top tent while 909 remained indoors providing some awesome pyrotechnics.

Festival Review: Listen Out - Ozone Reserve, Perth (27.09.15)

The sun was out for the Perth leg of EDM boutique festival Listen Out this weekend, and with a long weekend on and a lineup that made it the first city to sell out it seemed as if everything had aligned.

The 2015 Listen Out festival line up has dropped today and it's looking to be a sweet fusion of hip-hop, dance and electronic music at the events scheduled for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth this September and October. Leading the charge this year is Childish Gambino, who'll be making his Australian return off the back of a popularly received Splendour in the Grass appearance last year. Most recently, Gambino's debuted a new track at Bonnaroo in the States, so we're keen to see what new music stands to come out between now and his next lot of Aussie dates. Falls Festival alumni SBTRKT, Joey Bada$$, Alison Wonderland and Client Liaison also feature on the 2015 bill, with more announcements still to drop!

Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (aka BeachesBeaches), better known as Odesza are moving ahead in their career. Their second release, In Return, is a step ahead in the pop game for them. Away from their instrumental hip-hop roots, there is a deep, involved working towards melody with this new collaboration. Harrison from the duo was happy to answer a few questions for us ahead of their performance here in Australia at Sugar Mountain Festival.

Odesza announces debut Australian headline tour for January 2015.

Currently in the middle of a successful North American tour, Odesza have announced that they'll be bringing their powerful live show through to Australian stages next January! With their new album, In Return, already out through Inertia, Odesza will be continuing to cultivate and strengthen their Australian fan base. They enjoyed warm welcomes when they opened for RUFUS a few months ago, so if you weren't able to see them perform back then, this is your perfect opportunity!

Single Stream: Angus and Julia Stone "A Heartbreak (ODESZA Remix)" (2014)

There’s little we love more than music here at the AU. Mind you, a free single by Angus And Julia Stone – well, we love that even more. "A Heartbreak" was a favourite here at AU HQ, and today we've been enjoying this remix by ODESZA. In fact, it’s little surprise the two artists work so seamlessly together. Check it out right here:
