If you're like us, you probably woke up this morning thinking, "Man, there just aren't enough Somebody That I Used To Know tributes and parodies on the internet right now." Well our prayers have been answered by the man himself, no less.


Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra is a six minute clip splices together some of the countless tributes to the ubiquitous single, compiled by...

Like Mr Noir, you may think jazz is just for science teachers and other elbow-patched drips. Do you fear jazz, the lack of rules, the lack of boundaries? Perhaps it’s time to branch out and discover the energy. “That’s what drew me to it, when I was 16,” says Allan Browne, the highly-esteemed patron of Stonnington Jazz.  During his incredible musical career of over 50 years, Browne has worked...

The mega-prolific Brian Jonestown Massacre have attracted a lot of adjectives over the years – whether it be cries of musical genius or the dismissal of being too volatile to function. These days, however, the good ship Brian Jonestown Massacre is sailing on relatively calm seas, a trend which is consolidated by latest record Aufheben – one which continues a surprising run of consistent...

After selling out their first two shows in a snap, the lads (and lass) from Snakadaktal have added a third show to their itinerary. 


It'd be an understatement to say 2011 had been kind to the Melbourne locals. Snakadaktal climbed to national focus after clinching triple j's Unearthed High, which understandably precipitated an escalating tide of good fortune. Amassing ridiculous...

A song in which The Bedroom Philosopher sets the comments left under his Northcote (So Hungover) YouTube video to music. May or may not be an extension of a triple j radio segment. Includes the comment/lyrics: “It’s called self-juxtaposition/He is deconstructing his own identity within the conformist social mellow.” I don’t know what the ‘conformist social mellow’ is. And I don’t want...

First Aid Kit often get compared to Fleet Foxes, perhaps due to them getting their big break via their YouTube cover of Tiger Mountain Peasant Song. Aside from I Found A Way having the same romantic urgency and wavering flutes of Your Protector, Johanna and Klara Soderber’s assured second album cementstheir sound as something quite different - younger, subtler and leaning a lotcloser...

In the spirit of striking while the iron's hot, triple j darlings Snakadaktal are hitting the road once again, visiting ten cities in four weeks on their first ever national tour.


It'd be an understatement to say 2011 had been kind to the Melbourne locals. Snakadaktal climbed to national focus after clinching triple j's Unearthed High, which understandably precipitated an...

Towards the end of last year I remember bearing witness to the unenviable collapse of one of scenecore's many permutations at The Devil Wears Prada's Aussie tour (don't ask, please don't). I mean, We Came As Romans only started doing the do in 2008 and they sounded like dinosaurs. No-one gave a crap. TDWP mostly hawked stuff off of their Zombie EP, which is the...

Mere weeks before the start of their 21st celebrations, the Big Day Out have released the 2012 official iPhone application.


Following the success of the 2011 application which saw over 100,000 downloads, the 2012 version has been amped up more than Kanye West's latest Twitter rants. Features include full intergration with Facebook and Twitter, the ability to research all...
