PREVIEW: Australia’s 2014 Groovin’ The Moo
The countdown is on. Yes, very soon the spectacle that is Groovin’ The Moo will once again be hitting Australia’s regional centers in an attempt to bring good music to those who don’t regularly have access to it. Remember all the fun we had last year?
Oh, the anticipation is killing me. Here’s who YOU need to see and why:
Everytime Action Bronson plays a show you just don’t know what to expect. There was that time in Melbourne at Sugar Mountain where he performed most of his set in the crowd (even managing to grab a drink at the bar) or that time at St. Hilda’s old folks home where he got the older crowd toe tapping along. In fact, you probably don’t need anymore coaxing then that.
Having caught DeLong on his first tour of Australia as part of Splendour in the Grass 2013 we can promise you that if you’re looking to dance, Robert will ensure you “fucking” do. Blending a number of modified game controllers, live drums and a voice that reminds you of why you love life, his live set is a must see – and if his efforts at Splendour are anything to go off, it might just be the last thing you hear. Maybe bring some earplugs for this one…
As part of Astral People (the best artist management and touring company ever) and having recently been signed to Future Classic it’s pretty safe to say that Tom Purcell a.k.a. Wave Racer has got talent. His electronic sounds make you feel like you’re flying around Mario Kart’s “rainbow road” on a Nintendo 64, and his live shows certainly do not disappoint. Did we mention he’s just 20 years old?
What So Not
You know Flume. You know Emoh Instead. You love them both. Imagine if they had a child? They did. It’s name is What So Not. Why haven’t you seen them?
