Bloc Party ‘Day Four’

I’ve never been a massive Bloc Party fan, but the band are currently in Australia playing Splendour In The Grass, are about to release a new album, and just uploaded a new song from the album.

Metric ‘Youth Without Youth’

At long last there’s a new Metric song to wrap your head around, which is especially important to do given the band’s imminent visit to Australia for Splendour In The Grass and (hopefully) some sideshows.

Splendour In The Grass Day Three Review

The final day of Splendour In The Grass is always bittersweet. But the Day Three timetable provided the prefect antidote to our premature feelings of loss, especially since it necessitated constantly moving between the three stages and deciding on a whole range of clashes. This was easily the busiest day of the festival for me, and even looking back now the amount of quality music I witnessed seems almost absurd.
