the AU interview: Birds of Tokyo (Perth) talks "Anchor" EP, live shows and musical progression

After releasing their EP, Anchor, a couple of weeks ago, Birds of Tokyo have been busy, busy, busy.

Our 13 Favourite Records of 2013... so far... Part Two: 6 - 1

Way back when in January, we peered into our crystal balls and sought to predict the top albums of 2013 with the help of our excellent contributors.

Album Review: Sigur Rós - Kveikur (2013 LP)

The last offering from the Icelandic soundscape kings, 2012’s Valtari, was a deep, sonic bath: huge swells of keyboards and vast stretches of what was more like sound imprints than actual songs. Devoid of any clear structure it meandered, content to scale dizzying, elfin heights without caring whether you were along for the ride.

Single Stream: Sigur Ros "Isjaki" (2013)

"Isjaki" is the second single to be lifted from Sigur Ros' forthcoming album Kveikur due out on June 17th. They've released the lyrics video, though as expected the words are all in Icelandic. Or is it Hopelandic? There's an English translation in the comments on YouTube if you wish to seek them out. In the meantime, have a listen.

Our 12 Favourite International Tours of 2012

2012 has been an interesting year for international tours around Australia, with more than a handful of eagerly anticipated acts (read George Michael - admit it, you were gutted too), unfortunately cancelling their tours and a few festival dramas thrown into the mix. Thankfully, those that did make it to our shores more than made up for the cancellations. Without further ado, here are the top twelve international tours of 2012 as voted by the AU Review contributors.
