So Frenchy So Chic in the Park at Werribee Mansion

A one day celebration of new French music performed against the magical backdrop of Werribee Park Mansion. Crowd favourites, Moriarty performed their unique blend of depression-era blues. Nouvelle Vague were ever as crazy, touring with Melanie Pain & Phoebe Kildeer. And new to Australian shores (and sure to be regulars) – Asa and Féfé.

Live at Prince Bandroom

Lamb (UK) recently reunited, after a string of successful shows across Australia last year they returned to launch their new album. They entranced the Prince Bandroom with their ambient new songs, as well as the classics, including an epic rendition of Goreki. Support came from Brisbane band Oh Ye Denver Birds.

Marina & The Diamonds live at HiFi Bar, Melbourne

Marina & The Diamonds live in Melbourne

Marina & The Diamonds performed her first Australian concert at Melbourne’s HiFi bar on Tuesday night in support of The Family Jewels album. Being compared to artists such as Kate Bush, Florence + The Machine and Lady Gaga comes with great expectations, but Marina surpassed the hype. Straddling the line of indie and commercial with her brand of new wave/indie pop sound – decked out in a Mickey Mouse jumpsuit, Marina played a powerhouse set to the Diamond-cultists of Melbourne. My personal favourite was Shampain, youtube it. One to watch in 2011! Support was from lively Melbourne pop band Strange Talk. I covered the show for LifeMusicMedia, check out my photos.
