New York's largest music event, CMJ Music Marathon, officially opened registration for this year’s event. Last year included sets from headliners Local Natives, Ben Gibbard, Killer Mike, GZA, and Australia's own Kimbra (pipe down New Zealand!), plus performances from up-and-coming acts Icona Pop, Foxygen, and Savages.
While we were in New York for CMJ, we headed down to Coney Island just before it was ravaged by Hurricane Sandy and happened to bump into Brisbane boys Dune Rats wreaking their own havoc on the Island, which happened to be celebrating the Halloween season at the time. They managed to get a music video out of their good times for their new single "Red Light, Green Light", which ends with a short video that sums up the rest of their New York good times. Perhaps that's putting it mildly. Enjoy the premiere of this highly entertaining music video below!
Juveniles are an electronic outfit hailing from Rennes in France. Having spent time there myself I can say that these boys are definitely one of the biggest things to come out of there besides rain and crepes. the AU review got the down low from Juveniles vocalist Jean Sylvain.
Tell us about your new music video? Where did you record it and with who?
Californian psyche-rockers Spindrift took time out of their schedule to catch up with the AU review about their work in movie soundtracks, their new album and the accompanying documentary film.
While at The Aussie BBW at CMJ in New York City I had the chance to sit down with Lowlakes - enjoy our chat below!
