Hot off the heels of the release of the new single, Goodbye Future, the announcement of the headline spot for Groovin The Moo 2014, and Timeline, their collaboration with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, The Presets have announced three sideshow dates this May.

 

In intimate club settings, The Presets will premiere their brand new club show to a select handful of Australian fans in...

The fifth year of Bendigo’s Groovin The Moo proved a mixed bag, with a line-up that delivered in fits and starts. Lyrical-miracle Tuka and MC Ellesquire were among the festival’s first acts, the locals playing to a packed marquee. They were met with an excess of enthusiasm, their slick fusion of house, hip hop and RnB delighting punters. While there was a distinct absence of...

It sounds like the lengthy flight over from England has left DJ Woody feeling slightly unbalanced when he answers the phone a day prior to the opening gig on his first Australian tour. “Still recovering from the flight I think. Landed yesterday at 5am, so still disorientated a little bit really,” he says.

 

Thankfully he’s permitted a day of rest before grabbing hold of the decks...

Following a six-month break, The Kooks have been busy crafting material for a “groovier” fourth album, as well as rehearsing for their upcoming Australian tour. But unlike many musicians who you may expect to spend the time off collaborating, working on a solo project, or putting in some time with the family, The Kooks’ lead guitarist Hugh Harris says he did what every other young man would do...

It’s been almost a year since The Temper Trap’s second album came out. While the self-titled release did well, topping the Australian chats and producing several singles, it didn’t quite hit the commercial heights of their first. Singer Dougy Mandagi is surprisingly open about this, telling me that, above all, he still stands behind the album and its slower, softer sound.

Much has been made in the press of Tegan and Sara’s decision to “turn pop” on their newest album, Heartthrob. The record places a new emphasis on bouncy synth lines and catchy chorus hooks. The truth is that, if you’ve been paying any sort of attention to the duo’s music over the last few years, the sonic shift doesn’t come as that much of a surprise. The incredible harmonies, the canny...

There’s a certain freewheelin’ romanticism to the idea of a band on tour, spending weeks driving from gig to gig in a shitty old van, singing along toTiny Dancer and hurling good-natured abuse back and forth. But eventually you realise that you’re essentially confining a handful of people to the same room – all day, every day, for weeks, sometimes months at a time – at which point the idea...

Each year Groovin The Moo, the country's only regional touring festival, has gone from strength to strength. 2013 will prove no different with the announcement of a huge batch of local and international talent.

 

The full lineup in alphabetical order reads as follows: Alison Wonderland, Alpine, The Amity Affliction, The Bronx, DZ Deathrays (DJ set), Example, Flume, Frightened...

There’s a fine line between a good gig and a true performance, and it’s a craft the Kaiser Chiefs have mastered over the years. Tonight’s visit to a surprisingly modest turnout at The Palace showed the band ticking all the boxes – delivering enough false endings, climbing crescendos and sing-along choruses to satisfy a spoilt six-year-old’s attention span.

 

Here for Groovin' The...

British indie rockers The Maccabees could be forgiven for basking in the attention they’ve been receiving as of late, after their third album Given To The Wild has achieved chart heights previously unclimbed by the humble quintet. But, akin to the nature of most enduring rock bands, commercial success seems to be a little-relevant consequence of creating music that they’re proud of. For the...
