ok, so super thanks to the excellent dudes at The Vine for this. They’ve managed to find out some of the VIVID Live linup via some sneaky detective work. Whilst this is everything but set in stone, it’s still fucking a+.

For me it’s the fact that The Avalanches are playing. I think i’m definitely going to have to fly up to Syds town for this one. Excitement is a bit of an understatement.
It seems every site under the sun are saying that they got there first. I got my info off The Vine, but it seems as though awesome bros Pedestrian as well as Mess + Noise and a few others have got the ‘exclusive’ too. I think the real winner here is the inner detective in all of us.
Good question, son.
Actually, you know what? I’ve only written one line and I can’t continue this whole ‘the talk’ theme. Would get really weird. Like…really.
OK. Normal mode now.
I thought I’d ask you guys where you find the best new music?
I personally choose to go through:
- The Triple J music page
- The Nova100 music page (tend to be a hit and miss with some of this stuff)
- Launchpad Uplate on Nova100. You have to listen to this show purely because they don’t have a page on the Nova website and there’s no way of accessing their playlist
- 2009 on Triple J. This is probably one of the best places. Good interviews etc.
- Incoming on RRR
- The New Releases section of the iTunes Store
- The Music page on The Vine
- The Hear page on ThreeThousand
- The amazing blogs that are in the Blogs I Like section just below.
That’s quite a few spots actually…now I think of it. Anyway, if you feel the need for new music, check them out! They’re all great in their own right. Do you guys have any other ways? If so, let me know!
Also, for free shit (mp3′s in technical talk), check out the
- Triple J free music page
- The J Play free music page
- The Rolling Stone free mp3 blog
- Most of the awesome blogs in the Blogs I Like section below.
Anyway, I’ll have a proper post up soon guys. This one was just to keep the momentum up.
K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
