One of our favourite artists here at the AU for many years now has been Pluto Jonze, the Sydney based electronic artist who has been making waves with tracks like "Plastic Bag in a Hurricane". After a long wait, our patience is finally being rewarded with the release of his debut album Eject, being released through Stop Start and Inertia on July 12th. Pluto will be hitting the road from July through to September with his 3 piece band to celebrate its release, on a tour proudly presented by the AU review. The dates have just been announced and can be found after the jump.
Have you heard Pluto Jonze? I hadn’t. I have now though, and it was an incredible display of cross-genre, multimedia-integrated, infectiously energetic live prowess. Also Vydamo was there.
In This Issue: Northlane announce album signings and their Tasmanian tour dates, The Gaslight Anthem 2nd show on sale now, Vydamo announces tour support acts, Allen Stone announces support acts, Yacht Club DJs add new shows to Mayhem Tour, The Darkness & Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Australian tour cancelled, Funeral for a Friend announce support act, Seth Lakeman joining Joan Armatrading Australian Tour, Drapht adds new shows to The Uni-Verse Tour.
As a Future Music sideshow, Indie rock band Fun. played to a sold out crowd at The Enmore Theatre on Thursday night. Jason Li was there to capture the action.
New Yorker's Fun. have a lot to live up to just in their name alone. If you're going to blatantly deem yourselves an adjective with a full stop you better deliver the goods. The lads were once again gracing Sydney as part of the Future Music Festival circuit, and after graduating from the Metro were now promoted to the Enmore Theatre.
This time last year we divulged our top twelve Australian artists and top five international artists to watch over the following twelve months. So we figured now was as good a time as any to have a look back and see how they all fared...
It was great to see Tara Simmons hit the Black Bear Lodge. It has been some time since we have had the songstress headline a round of shows. Joining her on the co-headline tour is Pluto Jonze.

BIRDS OF TOKYO ANNOUNCE SPECIAL "THIS FIRE" EP SHOWS
Birds of Tokyo released their new EP This Fire today. Not only do they have new music, but they have announced two special live shows in December.
Brisbane’s Tara Simmons and Sydney’s Pluto Jonze will join forces for a tri-state, co-headline tour ‘From the Mountains to the Sun’. The tour will celebrate their most recent releases; Tara’s new album It’s Not Like We’re Trying to Move Mountains and Pluto with his latest single “See What the Sun Sees.” Together they will tour Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in October and November.
We're big fans of Sydney based artist Pluto Jonze here at the AU review, so you can understand that we're pretty excited to be presenting to you this morning his brand new clip "See What The Sun Sees". The song will stay with you long after you listen to it and the stop motion animation in the clip is superb. Also there may or may not be some Nicolas Cage/Meg Ryan inspiration in there. I'll let you be the judge.
