Album Review: The Magic Numbers - Alias (2014 LP)

The Magic Numbers started their career on a high with their stupendous self-titled debut record. However they have struggled to produce an album anywhere as well received since. That is until now.

the AU interview at T in the Park: The Magic Numbers (UK) talk about their long awaited new album "Alias"!

In just a couple of weeks, UK quartet The Magic Numbers will finally be delivering their long awaited fourth album Alias onto our eardrums. While I was in Scotland a couple of weeks ago covering T in the Park, I got to spend some time with the group backstage and over a beer, conducted an interview where we reflected on their time between records, talked about this one and found out if we'll ever get them back to Australia! Watch it here:

Festival Review: T in the Park (Day One) ft. Biffy Clyro + Pixies - Kinross-Shire, Scotland (11.07.14)

Now in its 21st year, T in the Park sits as the most established music festival in Scotland and alongside Glatsonbury, Leeds and Reading as one of the most well known annual music events in the United Kingdom. Its 2014 event - headlined by the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Calvin Harris, Scottish heroes Biffy Clyro, Pixies, Elbow and many more - marks something as the end of an era for the event. Like many world renowned festivals before it, the time has come for the event to move to a new home. But not before they give the venue - Balado Airfield in Kincross-Shire - where it's been held for 18 years, a proper goodbye.

As for the Rest: ...other acts that caught our eyes (and ears) at SXSW 2014!

A typical day at SXSW, if done correctly, is spent running around, catching as much music as is humanly possible. Sometimes this means you catch very brief performances of bands; a song here, a song there. Here's "the best of the rest" from my SXSW experience. The bands I caught briefly but left a lasting impression.
