These days, The Flaming Lips are all about taking things to the logical extreme. 24-hour song aside, this is none more evident than that of their live show. Before their festival-closing set at Harvest on the Saturday prior, I had only read about the majesty of The Flaming Lips live set. Space bubble, confetti, confetti, confetti, giant vaginas - it all seems pretty impressive on paper, but no...

Harvest's luscious venue and intriguing layout were unlike any other festival. The sun rays beamed upon the stunning green fields and ignited them with an irresistible energy. As you strolled from one stage to the next, you were greeted by dazzling art installations and the inclusion of The Campfire Stage (featuring acts such as comedian Dave Callan) along with the vaudeville-styled Le Boudoir...

In an interview with a fashion reporter in April this year, Sonic youth bassist and singer Kim Gordon nominated Kurt Vile’s record Childish Prodigy as her greatest guilty pleasure. “Guilty because I listen to it too much,” she said.

There are enigmatic bands, and then there's Portishead. Lead singer Beth Gibbons is a presence so shy she borders on the ethereal, hiding behind a curtain of blonde hair and delivering vocals that are at turns harsh and haunting. The Bristol trio record intermittently, leaving a gap of more than a decade between their last two albums, and tour only when they feel...

It's not surprising these days to find artists exploring various alternative ways of distributing their music to the public. What is surprising, however, is that oft-worshipped Oklahoman outfit The Flaming Lips have taken the notion beyond the ridiculous, having just released a 24-hour song on a USB hard drive. Thing is, the hard drive itself is encased in a genuine human fucking skull,...

It's been a fruitful day in terms of sideshow announcements, with The Flaming Lips pulling a welcome surprise move in announcing a Harvest Presents Melbourne sideshow.


The mighty F'Lips have been one of the most loved live acts to grace Australian shores, which they have done so frequently over...

One of the most critically acclaimed outfits of the past decade, Brooklyn's TV On The Radio, have revealed they will be making an appearance at the inaugural Harvest Presents: The Gathering.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Harvest is a one day outdoor music and arts festival taking place this November and they're currently seeking proposals for ideas and installations to enhance their festival.

Harvest will offer...
