Sunday in London saw the return of The Aussie BBQ - the live initiative of our music export body Sounds Australia. Hundreds of music fans - both locals and expats - came out for the event which saw over twenty Australian artists performing on two stages over ten hours at the Hoxton Bar and Grill in Shoreditch. It was a chance for us to see well established artists like Safia and Remi an become acquainted with some newer talent, some of whom are now based here in the UK.

Album Review: Suzie Stapleton - Obladi Diablo (2012 EP)

album cover - Obladi Diablo (fractured glass over image of furniture)

Melbourne songwriter Suzie Stapleton’s second EP has a surprisingly epic feel for a five song disc. Obladi Diablo is the follow up to her 2009 debut, 45 Revelations per minute. She’s said the title roughly translates as ‘pop music is evil’, but this ep sounds less like an all out attack on pop and much more like a thorough demonstration of why the world doesn't need pop at all.
