Live Review: City Calm Down + Foreign/National + The Rememberz + Blush Response - Rocket Bar, Adelaide (09.10.15)

City Calm Down have maintained somewhat of an air of mystery around them in recent years. Having spent quite a bit of time away working solidly on their debut album, In a Restless House, the Melbourne band have still managed to cultivate and maintain a strong fan base within the local scene and following on from an impressive few live shows in Sydney and Melbourne recently, not to mention a well-received BIGSOUND run, it's finally time for City Calm Down to step out from behind the curtain and into the spotlight - the fans and the stages are ready.

GRAPHIC Festival Review: Sarah Blasko - Sydney Opera House (11.10.15)

On album number five, Sarah Blasko shimmies and struts to the language of love. Her recent show at the Sydney Opera House for Graphic Festival saw the world premiere and official preview of her latest offering. It was worlds apart from her previous concert at this iconic venue where she was backed by the Sydney International Orchestra. This time around it was about taut, indie pop tunes and celebrating a crazy little thing called love.

the AU interview: Hermitude & The Preatures on their multiple ARIA nominations for 2015!

Two acts who are up for a cheeky few ARIA Awards apiece this year come straight outta NSW but from different ends of the spectrum; you've got The Preatures, the five piece who have been elevated to become one of the country's favourite live touring acts off the back of their debut album Blue Planet Eyes and then you have Hermitude, the Blue Mountains duo who've been storming festival stages around the world as well as sell-out headline shows with their slick and sophisticated electronic-driven tunes. Larry caught up with both at last week's ARIA nominations event in Sydney to see how everything's been going...

Single of the Day: Jordan Millar "True Or Nothing" (2015)

Jordan Millar has long been a favourite with AU staff, the charismatic songwriter and performer always making an impact whenever we happen to catch him performing live. Regardless of the stage, Millar's music presents itself as a great fusion of rhythm, lyricism and depth - his narratives are heartfelt and after releasing two albums and a series of EPs through his career, the sonic development Millar has demonstrated through 2015 has been a natural progression as opposed to any unprecedented jut out into another direction. His latest single, "True Or Nothing", is another example.

Dan Sultan announces November/December tour in support of OPENLive!

Dan Sultan will be on the road with some new material through November and December, supporting new music platform OPENLive and the release of a limited edition physical CD of his recent National Theatre concert. OPENLive, priding itself on being able to produce mixed and mastered recordings of performances instantly after the event has joined up with Sultan in what is a no-brainer partnership - the quality of Sultan's performances are stellar, and to have that essence captured on a physical format is something fans will no doubt be chomping at the bit to get their hands on.
