The Joy Formidable – Popinjay and coming to Oz!

Posted in Music, Rock'en channel with tags , , , on June 28, 2010 by speakertv

This is UK band I urge anyone to go check out, especially before these guys blow up! Because they are going to for sure! I had the pleasure of seeing these guys a couple of years ago in a small venue in Kilburn when Ritzy the singer was incredibly shy onstage.
Well that’s not the case at all now, after seeing them a the Great Escape this year, she now owns the stage!

Go, go see them, they’re coming to Australia.

July
25th Melbourne Workers Club HEADLINE w/ Temper Trap DJs
28th Sydney Beach Rd Hotel HEADLINE w/ Temper Trap DJs

August
2nd Sydney The Forum w/Passion Pit
4th Melbourne The Prince Bandroom w/Passion Pit
5th Melbourne The Prince Bandroom w/Passion Pit – sold out

Check out their debut single Popinjay

Art Vs Science – Magic Fountain Video

Posted in Electric channel, Music on June 24, 2010 by speakertv

Finally a taste of what is to come from Art Vs Science debut album. Slightly harder tune than previous Art Vs Science tracks, perhaps the band have been hitting the rave scene a little…

MAGIC FOUNTAIN the first single recounts the story of a mad inventor and his quest for rebirth!

Magic Fountain out in Oz August 6th.

Check out what they had to say when we caught up with them at Good Vibrations in Melbourne.

For those of you who missed these guys at Soundwave in Oz earlier this year, you’re in luck they’re heading back to our sunny shores in September for an East Coast Tour which includes Adelaide too!
If you don’t know who they are, head to their myspace and find out exactly what happy hardcore metal trance is… You won’t be disappointed!

Tickets on sale June 25th.

Temper Trap win APRA Song of The Year!

Posted in Music, Rock'en channel with tags , , , on June 22, 2010 by speakertv


With a forthcoming sold out tour in Australia, things just keep getting better for Temper Trap!

The Trap have just won Song Of The Year for their Platinum hit single ‘Sweet Disposition’ at the 2010 APRA Awards. The single reached #6 in the UK and #14 in the Oz charts!

If you missed out on tickets to their shows, we caught up with them at Falls Festival at the end of 2009 upon their return to Australia from the UK. So get cosy with Jonny on your laptop instead. Apparently he used to work in a donut shop before the band hit it big…

Professor Green teams up with Lily Allen

Posted in Electric channel, Hip Hop channel, Music with tags , , , , on June 18, 2010 by speakertv

Just when all thought Lily had retired from Music…
Here she is again with good mate Professor Green making their interpretation of The S.O.S. Band’s 1983 cult hit ‘Just Be Good To Me’ which was again recreated by Beats International with ‘Dub Be Good To Me’ – So its only fitting that Pro Green has of course renamed it too: ‘JUST BE GOOD TO GREEN’

Single out June 25th in Australia on Virgin Music

Mark Ronson & The Business INTL ‘Bang Bang Bang’

Posted in Electric channel, Hip Hop channel, Music with tags , , , on June 17, 2010 by speakertv

You either Love or hate Mark Ronson.
I’m more than happy to say I’m one of his avid Lovers and I say that with a capital L. What I love about Ronson is: he always seems to cater for most peoples musical tastes.
Q Tip and the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s keyboard player MNDR are guest rapper and vocalist on ‘Bang Bang Bang’.

Out July 11th in the UK.
Definitely a tune I’ll be finding on vinyl to spin and I’m diggin the music video too!
But you choose for yourself….
