It seems like renowned country troubadour Justin Townes Earle cannot get enough of Australia, and the adoration is more than a little bit reciprocated. Last in the country for a boot-worthy (that’s a good thing, for the uninitiated) Golden Plains performance, Justin returns with Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now – his refreshingly soulful new LP. Before touching...

You’d be hard pressed to identify an Aussie DJ who spends more time touring and pumping out mixes in the studio that Sydney’s favourite son, Nick Skitz. Indeed, this guy has toured virtually week-in, week-out for almost 15 years, and his multi-annual Skitz mixes keep the punters salivating for more.
