Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Harvest Festival is about to enter its Fortnight of Awesomeness and we're pretty chuffed to be heading along to give you a little snapshot of all the behind-the-scenes frivolity. Here's a little teaser interview with Sigur Ros to wet your whistles.

We're super chuffed to announce we're supporting Bat For Lashes' sideshows next year - huzzah! Although we won't literally be up on stage with Natasha Khan (our singing voices are meant only for the shower), we're quite excited about being involved.

tunesday - cameras cover kate bush

3:00pm Tuesday, 30 Oct.

Covers are hard to pull off. Especially when you're tackling the wonderful Ms. Bush. But as Sydney band Cameras show, sometimes a new take makes you realise things you never knew before (and/or make you cry).

tunesday - the good china

3:00pm Tuesday, 23 Oct.

Unlike the shonky crockery sets you may have tinkling around, The Good China are a band you want to display loud and proud on your dining table. As there are eight of them, you may want to make sure that table is reinforced though, otherwise you'll wind up with The Broken China.

We had a little chat with singer Tara Lynch of soul-sister-slayers, The Transatlantics. These three Adeladies (see what we did there?) and their large band of merry men have injected some well-needed groove into our lives and are coming to a town near you soon.

Hold your breath, count to ten, and breathe out again. We're super thrilled to bring you a little excerpt from a chat we had with none other than Antony Hegarty, lead singer of Antony & The Johnsons.

Some of the best things in life come in twos: shoes, Kit Kats and Swedish sisters First Aid Kit, for an example.

tunesday - the paper kites

3:00pm Tuesday, 25 Sep.

The Paper Kites create music for those days when the only way to get the weight of the world off your shoulders is to dance it off.

If we had to choose a band to connect us with alien life and have a party, Animal Collective's new album Centipede Hz would be on the top of our play list.

tunesday - davy simony

9:00am Tuesday, 11 Sep.

The salty sea air and barefooted barbecues in far-north Queensland have imbued Davy's gentle guitar manner on his debut EP, Discover.
