Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt are coming to Australia in June for a co-headline tour! Hitting up venues in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane, the duo will be taking their tunes round the country off the back of a huge tour through America. This visit to Australia will mark Tyler's third, but it will be Earl's debut run of performances in this area of the globe.
“Fuck”: the first word out of Tyler, the Creator’s mouth on his latest concept LP Wolf, and, since this latest package plays out as a prequel to his prior albums, our introduction to Tyler’s incredibly complex and cathartic journey; the journey through which the image of who Tyler is as a person finally comes together, cementing his position as one of the most fascinating rappers to emerge in the past couple of years.
We return with the next batch of our favourite albums of 2011...
Arctic Monkeys - Suck It and See
"Arctic Monkeys can do no wrong. Seriously. Even with a slightly more chilled out album than previous ones, it still rocks my socks." - Karina Carroll
Some great live video here of Sydney's Chicks Who Love Guns covering Tyler, The Creator's "Yonkers". Enjoy!
