While supporting Tame Impala on their national tour, Mini Mansions took a moment to play a laid back, grassroots show at Sydney’s GoodGod Small Club. Exchanging the open stage and flair of a larger venue for a stripped back, tight venue. The experience at GoodGod was a pure representation of the band’s skill and appeal to music lovers.

Having built a career on collaborating with the best up and coming artists it was only fitting that Ronson bring along some big supports and cameos to help him deliver his Splendour sideshows to an enthusiastic Australian audience.

Day 0 – Splendour in the Mud
Preparedness for the onslaught of Mud ☐
That last one was a miserable oversight on my behalf, after what seemed like the cruisiest drive from Melb to the Splendour site, we were all greeted with a battleground of punters who were already covered in a layer of muddy sludge. After begrudgingly setting up camp in the rain it was into the site we went.
Our tents may have been wet, but our spirits were not dampened,

Review by Scott Singh
Come Australia Day, traditionally there will be a BBQ set up in the backyard with the Hottest 100 playing all afternoon. Or rather than that the family will be taken out for some inspiring journey to revitalize the bunch after the recent holiday celebrations. Though, while others were off to their own devices, many faithful punters attended the Sydney Showground in preparation for BDO. With fans as varied as the artist playing today. This day out offered its signature range of music genres to accommodate for everyone’s taste in music.

Billed by organisers as the perfect way to cap off New Year’s celebrations, Brisbane’s Sunset Sounds has become renowned for its impeccable line-ups and alluring Botanical Gardens setting. With headline act Interpol leading the charge of an impressively diverse set of artists, the 2011 festival kicked off on the muggy afternoon of Wednesday January 5th.
After a short delay at the gate (a mix-up with letting the media in probably not the kind of press that organisers had hoped for) I head straight for the River Stage to catch the first winners of the festival’s ‘Sponsor the Band’ competition Ball Park Music. Halfway through their set and the local six-piece has drawn a small but decent crowd for early in the afternoon, mixing originals and covers and making big sound for a group of not so big kids. Ending with ‘iFly’, their most well known track, the swelling audience joins in with a rousing chorus and the day is kicked off to a glorious start.

||Perth’s global gallivanters Tame Impala are fresh back from their virgin voyage around the USA in time to announce their Spring Australian Tour.
Since the recent release of their debut record, Innerspeaker, there’s been no rest for the Perth four-piece, who walked off the stage of their last Australian show and onto a jetplane bound for the states.
In the US they supported MGMT at a slew of sold out shows everywhere from Santa Cruz to Salt Lake City and played sold out headline shows of their own in NYC, LA and Chicago.

||Given that this was a Friday night in Brisbane and it was getting colder by the minute, I wasn’t expecting such a big turn out tonight. But to my surprise the venue was three quarters full and a great atmosphere had already begun to build prior to the headliners entering the stage.
I managed to catch a good part of The Silents’ set which was a good appetizer before the main meal. Very gentle sounds
and everything that a good warm up band should contain. Good sounds, ok mix and great potential to be the headliner in a couple of years.
Tame Impala get onto the stage as if they were walking into their living room to sit down for a jam in front of their friends. Bare feet, smiles and a few beers in hand they each position themselves and prepare. It is so noticeable that it needs to be mentioned, as soon as the first note is played each of the members’ face completely changes and a focused look falls onto their appearance. Gone is the joker side and game face appears. Their eyes say that the one thing that they all came here to do is upon them and the time has arrived to celebrate.
