Our first official week of publishing has come to an end and a lot of things have happened. Here, we will give you almost everything that we might have missed throughout the week.
- Triple J Hottest 100 – Flume gets #1.
Its no surprise that Flume would be at the top of the chart. From first performing in Adelaide in 2012, to now currently going on tour overseas in America, Flume has taken the world by storm. The hit song “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai off his album ‘Skin’ took Triple J’s top spot.
- St Jerome Laneway Festival
St Jerome Laneway Festival started in Brisbane on the 26th of January! Featuring artists such as Tash Sultana, Tame Impala, Dune Rats, Nick Murphy (formally Chet Faker) and more. If you haven’t gotten tickets for the other festival days click here to purchase tickets!
- Missy Elliot’s “I’m Better”
Missy Elliot released a music video for her new song “I’m Better” featuring Lamb. With futuristic fashion, lighting, beats and makeup, the hip-hop singer has definitely found a new aesthetic compared to her older, more traditional music- for example her sound and visuals of “Work It” released in 2002.
- New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
Big names like Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty, Maroon 5 and Dave Matthews are all set to headline the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in late April and early May. Other musicians such as Snoop Dog and Kings of Leon will also be playing, accompanied by 500 other artists over the schedule of the festival.
OzFest is on at the Shark Bar in Miami, QLD is on TONIGHT! Featuring bands such as Ball Park Music, Urth Boy and Britsh India it will surely go off at the small bar above the Miami Tavern. Click here for more details.
- Chance the Rapper
Chance the Rapper, accompanied by Jon Batiste and Ziggy Marley sang the hit child television show “Arthur” theme song. All I can say is that it was amazing.
- Triple J Like a Version
Aurora, the Norwegian beauty covered Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” on Friday. It was probably the most angelic thing you will hear this month.
