We got to spend quite a lot of time backstage at Lollapalooza this year, interviewing a pile of our favourite artists - which you'll be seeing online in the days to come - and thought we'd bring you a few candid moments we captured over the weekend, from Peking Duk just after they destroyed it on stage to Chicago's own Twin Peaks, Angus and Julia Stone and a bit of a photobomb during our Hermitude interview. View on:

Foals and Bloc Party lead the first artist announcement for the Falls & Southbound festivals!

Live Review: Toro y Moi + Portugal. The Man - The Hi-Fi, Sydney (29.01.14)

Sideshows to major festivals are always a welcome relief for those who can’t bear a full day in sweltering heat, so the announcement of Toro y Moi coupled with Portugal. The Man surely garnered anticipation, if only due to the slightly unconventional stylistic combination.

The Big Day Out sideshows continued last night in Sydney at The Hi-Fi with the anticipated double bill of Toro y Moi with Portugal. The Man. Mikki Gomez was there and brings us these photos from the epic night:

Live Review: Toro y Moi + Portugal. The Man - The Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne (21.01.14)

A lot can be said about the quality of a live show before it even begins. A packed out venue, as was the Hi-Fi Bar for Toro y Moi’s Big Day Out sideshow, is typically indicative of a decent gig. But when members of Arcade Fire and Tame Impala are amongst the punters having a casual round of pre show drinks at the bar, you are probably right to suggest the show will be nothing short of brilliant. Fortunately, Toro y Moi’s live set exceeded all expectations.

Festival Review: Big Day Out Gold Coast - Metricon Stadium (19.01.14)

Big Day Out is a day of fun in the sun. In fact, it’s mostly a lot of hot, humid sun for Gold Coast. But the bands at Metricon Stadium try their best to balance it out with fun too. This year the lineup definitely achieved that and more.

Big Day Out Sideshows: Toro Y Moi and Portugal. The Man to play Melbourne and Sydney.

In some of the most talked about sideshows of the Big Day Out tour, Toro Y Moi and Portugal. The Man will perform two special dates in Melbourne and Sydney. Between Toro Y Moi's stunning live show and Portugal. The Man's capability to get bodies moving, especially with the release of the latest album Evil Friends, this duo is going to be providing some memorable moments of live music for sure.

Live Review: Toro Y Moi + Jonti + Yukon Snakes - The Standard (07.03.13)

Toro Y Moi

Back in January when I asked Chazwick Bundick (the musical brains behind Toro Y Moi) what we could expect from his anticipated Australian tour, he replied: “Expect pyrotechnics and stripper poles with a lazer show and hologram strippers!!! That and four dudes on stage holding it down to the max.” At his sold-out show at Sydney’s The Standard, Bundick did not disappoint. Well, not on the latter statement at least.

the AU interview: Toro Y Moi (California)

Chazwick

Few musicians have enjoyed the sort of exponential growth experienced by Toro Y Moi - the ever-so-modest college graduate Chazwick Bundick. Chaz’s tunes, now backed by a three-piece band, are capable of fusing luxurious funk and electronica with delicate pop melodies and rolling percussion. Chaz took some time out from a relentless European tour to discuss his third album Anything in Return, as well as what Australian fans can expect when Toro Y Moi hit our shores in March.
