Stonefield are four sisters from Macedon, Victoria, who are quite young, but play their instruments with the wisdom of old timers. El sat around the table with the sisters Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly in awe of such young and talented rockers.
Pyramid Rock Festival this year played host to the all-great Karnivool. They rocked a killer set as usual, and El was lucky enough to sit down with Mark 'Hoss' Hosking before they took the stage to talk about India and their new forthcoming album.
If you have never listened to The Smith Street Band, then, as Gran used to say, 'you've got rocks in your head.' Lyricist master Wil Wagner will have you kill your brains laughing whilst uncontrollably smiling at the familiar but never before heard Melbourne punk rock sound. At least, that's what it did to me at Pyramid Rock Festival this year where I caught up with Wil and drummer Chris to eat trail mix and talk weird stuff.
This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
Spain's Los Coronas are heading to Australia this month, and will stick around for the New Year, performing at Pyramid Rock Festival, Sydney Festival, as well as a whole bunch of headlining shows. The AU review got to pick the brain of the band's guitarist, David Krahe, just before they start their whirlwind tour of our country.
The explosive party that is the Pyramid Rock Festival just got a whole lot more explosive with the final reveal of their 2012/2013 festival line up! Australian favourites Tame Impala are heading up the second artist line up announcement, with their excellent live shows garnering much praise both locally and internationally!
Check out the rest of the new additions to the line up below:
My Secret Circus
After touring the United Kingdom and the United States, Dead Letter Circus are back in Australia and are touring their new material in December.
Dead Letter Circus lived onsite in the Loose Stones studios on the Gold Coast to record the follow up to their chart topping debut album “This is the Warning.”
Turning nine years old this year, the Pyramid Rock Festival is once again bringing a killer line up of bands and DJs to Philip Island to help you ring in the New Year! With a line up dominated by Australian talent, which is always great to see, Pyramid Rock is going to be a dream festival this year, with so many different sounds being set against the awesome back drop of the ocean.
The line up is as follows!
All The Colours
Blood Red Shoes
While at Peats Ridge Festival, Larry sat down with Thundamentals to talk about the phases of music making, touring with Drapht, and their shows around Australia.
The burning sun and heat inside the tent told me it was time to get up and get going for day number two of Pyramid Rock. It was a beautiful day on sunny Phillip Island and the breeze off the ocean made for perfect festival conditions.
As we hit the second day of 2012, we take a look back at how hundreds of thousands of music fans around Australia brought in 2012 through a string of events on New Years Eve and New Years Day.
