Gary Numan has revealed a string of Australian tour dates.


Numan released his 20th album Splinter late last year – and each time he puts out a new record, it seems to spark another dozen artists into action. David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor and Prince all gush with praise about Numan's influence on their careers.

The unique rumble of Brooklyn art-funk-fusion outfit Battles has always been begging to be remixed. Now, thanks to the sweeping success of their sophomore album, the un-spoonerised Gloss Drop, their music undergoes a full makeover.


Having been handpicked by the trio themselves, the sheer variety of producers and beat-makers on offer reflects the group’s eclectic tastes. Much...

UK post-dubstep duo Mount Kimbie are returning to Australian shores this May.


Last in Victoria for the closing Saturday night set at Golden Plains last year, the duo have received worldwide critical acclaim since the release of 2010 debut album Crooks & Lovers. Revered for the progression in their live show since the release, this tour is unmissable for fans interested in...

Japan is about as culturally advanced as you could possibly imagine a country to be. Art, music, fashion – it’s all there and it’s always about as unusual and distinctive as you can get. No surprise then, that the man in question hails from the land of the rising run, despite his eventual move to the UK to more closely align himself to the electronic music scene – and it was his upbringing in...

Grouplove return with another bounding, joyful single from Never Trust A Happy Song. Compared to Colours and Itchin' On A Photograph, Tongue Tied has a more consistent beat, more of a pumping dance rock aesthetic, similar to the all-in pop-gasms of Architecture in Helsinki. A ferocious indie party tune that sounds better if you play it loudly.

A little piece of news to brighten your day – UK trance producer Solarstone is heading down to Australia to light up our clubs next month. 


With a second instalment of his much-celebrated Electronic Architecture compilation, featuring gems from the likes of Hybrid, Medway, Nick Rowland and more alongside his own work, it’s no wonder he’s more than ready to hit the decks for a...

This album comes wrapped in a certain seriousness – from its wordy thought provoking title to the sobering image of a lighthouse in a storm.


You might expect sombre singer song writer musings but Maus greets us with tinkling faux Baroque arpeggiations of Streetlight that is quickly enveloped in a fog of dreamy synth textures that moves to an insistent wonky disco beat. Most...

Big Freedia has been secured as headliner for Grouse Party's fourth birthday, in what will surely be a party for the ages.

Synth posters Miami Horror have covered Under the Milky Way by The Church, to raise funds for an Indigenous arts foundation called Heaps Decent. They've added a disco beat and a few synth flourishes to this seminal new wave track - all kinds of wrong, to be honest, but for an indisputably good cause.

I adore The Forum. Before you even add to the recipe the brilliant bands that play there, you have something truly unique in the world. Its intricate façade, with its Moorish influence, contrasting with the Greco-roman interior and the faux twilight ceiling bedecked with stars, ensures that there's always something beguiling to look at. Mix with this the sounds that have graced this grand dame...
