SHORE THING 2013
Summadayze has been rcognised as one of the country's best NYE festivals and it isn't hard to see why. Year after year, the festival has brought some of the best international acts to Australia and has provided the opportunity for some brilliant local talent to do their thing on stages across the country, to some of the biggest festival crowds Australia has been known to produce.
As a soundtrack to the London 2012 Olympic cycling events, electronica masterminds The Chemical Brothers have produced "Theme for Velodrome". There’s no gorgeous ambiance here, none of that production which gives you time to stop and admire the soundscapes the duo so perfectly craft. This release is a fast-building mountain of chaos, akin to a rapid downhill roller-coaster ride, something which is entirely appropriate for the hectic road ahead these cyclists have awaiting them.
Massive week! Lots of huge releases from big acts from Laura Marling, Paul Weller, Marilyn Manson, Katy Perry, All American Rejects, The Chemical Brothers and Grinderman to name a few! Also releases from oldies and new local acts such as The Manks as well as dance acts such as Far East Movement and electro from Laps. There’s something for everyone and heaps to get through so get stuck in! Stay posted for next week, it’s going to be another big one!

You might be wondering why you're seeing film reviews suddenly pop up on the AU review... well, ultimately it's because of this film.
March in Adelaide is truly a magical time. Unicorns? Perhaps not, but there are a number of amazing, back-to-back festivals. The Fringe Festival is still a warm corpse in the ground, and we are about to dance upon its grave. The “Garden” has transformed, with six stages having sprouted up overnight, across Rymill Park. The Future Music Fesitval has arrived: the highlight of the festival calendar for fans of pop, drum and base and electronic music.
As we've been going through the top 40 tracks and albums of the year, I thought we should take some time out to recognise some of the best music videos of 2010.
