THE AU REVIEW (MUSIC)

Live Review: Heavenly Sounds feat. Lisa Mitchell - St Michael's Church, Melbourne (13.07.12)

LISA MITCHELL

Melbourne’s tram network was doing its job for once and I found myself blazing along Swanston Street. So when I arrived at St Michael's with an amazing amount of time to kill, I thought I could collect thoughts, do a bit of street press reading, and maybe mull about discovering some wonderful church architecture.

The Great Escape Photo Gallery: Day 3 Part 3: We Are Augustines - Psychosocial Basement (12.05.12)

Brooklyn based rock group We Are Augustines literally had sweat dripping from the ceiling when they played an incredible set at the Psychosocial Basement in Brighton as part of The Great Escape Festival earlier in the month. Johnny Au delivers this set of photos that capture the band in their element...

Live Review: Portugal. The Man + Givers + Guineafowl - Metro Theatre (07.02.12)

I arrived at the Metro Theatre for this phenomenal (and criminally undersold) triple bill to hear a couple of new tracks from Sydney's Guineafowl, opening up the night in their usual classy fashion. The new track sounded promising, keeping us on our toes for their long awaited debut LP, hopefully being released later this year. Of course, tracks from their EP were included in the mix though I wasn't fortunate enough to catch them!

Album Review: Handsome Furs - Sound Kapital (2011 LP)

“When I get back home/I won’t be the same no more.”

Handsome Furs‘ latest release Sound Kapital was inspired by the husband and wife duo of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry’s tour of Asia - in particular, the time they spent in Burma with bands who were forced to perform underground, away from their oppressive government and with minimal access to electricity and recording equipment.

Luminous Festival: Battles + Palace of Fire - Sydney Opera Theatre (31.05.09)


After months of hype and anticipation, Brian Eno’s Luminous Festival has finally arrived; the main feature of Sydney’s groundbreaking festival of light, sound and culture - Vivid. Late last week, the festival kicked off with the lighting of the Opera House Sails, and the opening of Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings Exhibit. I highly recommend giving both a glance before the festival ends on June 14th (alongside Eno’s “Pure Scenius”). And this weekend, we saw the first in the series of live concerts – here, featuring Sydney’s Palace of Fire and New York Cities’s Battles.
