Our 20 Favourite Records of 2015...So Far (Part Two: 10-1)

Yesterday, we brought you the first batch of 2015-released albums that AU contributors ranked as the best of the year so far. A great blend of Australian and international releases, the list reflected a wide range of music tastes and killer tunes that obviously have struck a chord with music fans globally. Today, we continue with the countdown, naming the ten records that have stood out above the rest as some of the best albums of 2015.

the AU Weekend Gig Guide: June 26th - June 28th.

Already Friday tomorrow! We're heading to a diverse range of live shows around the country this weekend, from country folk royalty in Sydney, through to some brilliant electronic tunes down the east coast, there's definitely something for everyone going down. Check out our gig guide for our tips this weekend!

the AU interview: Oisima (Adelaide) talks the long awaited release of 'Nicaragua Nights'!

Nicaragua Nights, the debut full-length record from Adelaide's Oisima, was one that was picked up almost ravenously by various music publications and fans of the producer's fantastic knack to conjuring up soundscapes to get lost in. Oisima's musical journey to this point has been marked by a few mixtape and EP releases so understandably, the hype surrounding his first studio album was justified, especially given the delays it had experienced. As a performer, Oisima's live shows have taken him around the country and his reputation for churning out an engaging live format has continued to grow. For a lot of Adelaide fans though, he's still Anth from the Howling Owl cafe and bar who also happens to make some dope tunes.

The release of Nicaragua Nights, the debut album by Adelaide producer Oisima is one that has been long awaited and definitely much anticipated in local circles as it is now around the country. Having established himself as a bit of a maestro of constructing some awesome melodic atmospheres that has fused influences traversing blues, bass and more, Anth Wendt has been consistently knocking out music that has been appealing to a larger audience with each release.

Live Review: Art vs Science + Oisima - Adelaide Unibar (04.04.14)

Oh Art vs Science. Keeping me drunk and dancing up a sweat a gigs since 2009. The boys kicked off their Create/Destroy EP tour at the Adelaide Unibar - the first show of the tour - to a crowd eager to eat their live show up because let's be honest, it's been a while since they've brought the noise through these parts. Returning to the stage that hosted them for the first time moons ago (supporting The Galvatrons), the show was a great one for the Sydney trio and showed how much potential still lay ahead for the rest of the tour.
