Gossling’s vocal quirkiness has set her apart from other contemporary artists, underpinned by music that has moved with the times; transitioning from a folky leaning to include elements of electronic synths and textures. Her debut album, “Harvest Of Gold” was undoubtedly one of 2013’s best Australian releases, (“Joyous, honest and dreamy” – Harper’s Bazaar). To celebrate her national tour she will release a special digital only edition of “Harvest of Gold” featuring a bonus EP of new and previously unreleased music, including her stunning covers of Everclear’s 90’s anthem ‘Santa Monica’ and Vance Joys’ hit single ‘Riptide’ [Video Below].

Now in their second decade, The Hold Steady formed in 2003 in Brooklyn, NY, and, with their vibrant mixture of punk ethos and classic rock pedigree punctuated by lyrically dense storytelling and guitar riffs, quickly became a critically acclaimed rock band with a rabid fan base to match.
‘Teeth Dreams’ is the New York band’s sixth album and first on its own Positive Jams imprint via new label Washington Square, itself a newly established imprint formed by Razor & Tie, distributed by Sony in Australia. The Australian release will feature an extra three exclusive tracks.

The Living End raise the alarm for arena tour (see what I did there?)
Everyone’s favourite Australian alternative rockabilly punk rock band The Living End have announced a tour of the East Coast and Perth taking place over the four Fridays in May. “So what!” I hear you shout. Well, before I continue I’ll ask you to calm down. Calm now? Good. The unusual thing about this tour is that dates in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth will be taking place in arenas. The tour will be the first time the Melbourne band has headlined an arena tour in Australia and will be the band’s only major city performances in 2009.
Coming along for the ride are Perth grunge act Gyroscope and blog buzz band (BBB?) Tame Impala. All four shows will be all-ages and for something quite unusual for arena shows, tickets will be under $60! The Living End will also be re-releasing White Noise with a bonus CD full of rare never released before tracks, and tickets buyers will be able to add the release onto the ticket price for a nominal fee. How’s that for service.

Interview by: Harro for LifeMusicMedia
Harro: Yves Klein Blue are named after artist Yves Klein’s famous IKB, a blue paint that does not lose its brilliance over time, which is a metaphor for your bands aspiration to create music that will never weaken with age. Whose idea was it to pick Yves Kleins masterpiece as the name of the band?
Charles: Michaels. I blame it all on him. I must admit, the analysis for the bandname has come up in hindsight, but it still seems like a good idea.
Harro: How does it feel to be touring with The Holidays whom are one of the bands that you look up to the most?
Charles: It will certainly be an interesting tour. I mean we’re going to Perth and Adelaide! We’ve never been there before, though I think the Holidays have. They’re hardened road warriors.
Harro: Who came up with the interesting name of the tour Immaculate Confection? Continue reading “Genius isn’t it?” YKB’s lead guitarist Charles Sales tells Harro a few days before their Immaculate Confection Tour, October 2008
