The 2012 ARIA Awards – The Nominees

By on Tuesday, 20th November 2012 at 11:00 am

Are you taking the break-up of INXS a little too hard? It is time to let go, man…first, they haven’t really been INXS since the passing of Michael Hutchence 15 years ago, and second, it is really time you should be embracing the wealth of talent coming out of Australia right now. If you stop to think about it, all your favourite bands tour down in Oz because, well, it’s worth their while: Oz has the 6th largest music market in the world.

This year Australia is celebrating a major milestone related to their industry music awards show, the ARIAs (equivalent to the BRITs in the UK and the Grammys in the States). In the lead-up to the event taking place on Thursday the 29th of November in Sydney, the city is hosting Aria Week, filled with loads of industry-sponsored gigs, as well as the inaugural Electronic Music Conference (EMC 2012), the first of its kind in the Asian-Pacific music realm. It’s going to be a week to remember. So whether the Temper Trap, who graced the TGTF stage at Liverpool Sound City this year and who are also performing at this year’s ARIAs, or even ‘Somebody I Used to Know’ Goyte are your only knowledge of the current Australian music scene, we’re going to bring you more from the land down under in the coming weeks.

The 2012 26th ARIA Awards will take place Thursday 29 November at Sydney Entertainment Centre. The show will feature performances by The Temper Trap, The Jezebels, Jessica Mauboy, Hilltop Hoods, 360, Guy Sebastian, Kimbra, Missy Higgins and special guest from America, Taylor Swift.

Full list of nominees after the jump.

Video of the Moment #1046: Paaniq feat. Rhianna Kenny

By on Monday, 19th November 2012 at 6:00 pm

Swedish electronic duo Paaniq – who put out an amazing EP on Heya Hifi this year, ‘Heads in the Ditch’ – have a new promo video for their song ‘Never Look Back’, which features the London singer Rhianna Kenny (not to be confused with, you know, that *other* Rhianna with noisome red hair). The video is kind of blurry (the description on YouTube reads “DIY makes the devil’s work easy”, haha), so if you don’t want to watch the video, listen to the song via stream instead. ‘Never Look Back’ is more ‘obvious’ than the songs on ‘Heads in the Ditch’, but I can see it having pop chart potential. Enjoy.
