The new single from Hungry Kids of Hungary, ‘Twin Cities’ flew under the radar a bit for me. It was probably the mid December release date. But man, glad I’ve finally wrapped my ears around it.
I think the clip’s staggered and choppy editing of the pretty mundane daily actions suit the track to a t. The clip doubled with the really quite restrained and controlled brooding epicness of the track nails it.
The bands second album, You’re A Shadow is out on Feb 22 through Stop Start/EMI. You can pre-order it on iTunes here.
Woah. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. This is the September edition of the maamf mixtape series. After a crazy busy month or so, I’ve finally gotten round to chucking all my fave tracks of the month into one tape. All local stuff, all fucking good.
Electric Empire – Changin’
Hungry Kids of Hungary – Sharp Shooter
Maxi – From The Start
Step-Panther – Maybe Later
Damn Terran – Pills
South City Sushi Cop – Bad Blocks
DEJA – Luststruck (Cosmo Black Remix)
Twerps – Work It Out
The full lineup for St Kilda Festival’s Festival Sunday came out today, and it’s looking good.
We announced the first four acts on the list about a month ago, and although they looked good, the full lineup looks better. Some great local bands and one that will get all the ’90s and early ’00s kids going nuts.
This year, Festival Sunday spans across nine stages, with a decent range of acts playing. You should recognise a few of the names, but like me, there’s a few there i haven’t heard of. Below is the full lineup with set times etc. As you can see, there is HEAPS on.
Especially looking forward to Gareth Liddiard, Jebediah, Muscles, Kimbra, The Medics, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Dan Webb, Jessica Paige, Paqman, The Bon Scotts, and Stonefield. It’s all for free, it’s on Sunday Feb 13th, and is right throughout St Kilda.
ok. So for anyone who lives down in Melbourne, you’ll know that the St Kilda Festival is always a bit of fun. Good food, some pretty awesome live music, and best of all, the whole thing is free.
The festival runs between Feb 5 and Feb 13 and is held right throughout St Kilda and Festival Sunday is on Sunday the 13th Feb. Festival Sunday sees about 60 bands playing across a few different stages with the main stage on the beach. Last year I saw Jonathan Boulet play this small little stage, and the year before I witnessed Cut Copy doing a pretty awesome DJ set and Aussie rock legends The Angels doing a set. So yeah, they always manage to attract some fairly decent acts. They also announce the shortlist for the Australian Music Prize – you can check out all of the entrants for that here.
Anyway, so on Friday they announced four of the acts playing on Festival Sunday. They always have some pretty great local acts. So anyway, without further ado, the first four acts announced are:
Hungry Kids of Hungary
I’m especially looking forward to Kimbra and Hungry Kids of Hungary (and we got two of their tracks below). They’re going to announce the rest of the lineup in January, so stay tuned.
The full lineup has been announced, and we’ve got it on maamf. You can see it all, including playing times right here.
