Thanks to Tim for putting this together:

Australian Music Round-UpGeneral News

The Getaway Plan debuted at number 17 on the ARIA charts this week, I personally think it's one of the best Australian albums in a few years, so make sure you pick it up!

Do Short Stack really need a DVD? I suppose its better than buying anything related to the Justice Crew. Americans who read this, don't look up who the Justice Crew are, it will make you never want to come to Australia and destroy our tourism industry. Sorry for anyone who came here to read news.

In news that relates to actual music, there is a new venue opening in Sydney!


Tour/Show News

The third Soundwave line up is upon us, and it just keeps getting better.

Playground Weekender has announced there line-up. Let's hope Manchester Orchestra do a sideshow.


Release News

From last week, Bluejuice's third album, Company. Grab it! Also tour dates, one of the best live acts going around Australia.


Club Shows Do Your Part To Save The Scene And START Going To Shows

Hot Damn (Thursday 24th November)
Short Stack, Wake The Giants, Strickland, The Atlantis


More coming next week...


Australian Song of the Week

The Getaway Plan's new album is so good, as mentioned before, check this tune out!

I really enjoyed Requiem, possibly one of the best Australian albums to have come out this year.

I really agree, it hasn't got as much airplay as i was hoping it would. Apparently not as many tickets sold on the tour either, but thats what happens when you do a comeback and an album release. Hope it does well but!

I wouldn't know too much about airplay, as I don't listen to the radio that much these days. I got to listen to it when I was reviewing it for a website I do reviews for and I was pretty impressed. I'll get to see them next week as well to review their show here in Brisbane, hopefully that will be good :)

pretty much, but it might lead to a resurgence into bands playing there, i hadn't seen anyone at the forum in years!

Hopefully! My one and only time at the forum seems a lifetime ago
Parkway Drive in 2005
I remember 3 distinct things about that venue

1. The weird s-shape and steps and blocks for vantage points over the joint
2. It being like 40 in there
3. Getting absolutely abused by a security guard for taking my shirt off because that before mentioned heat
