I KNOW THE CHIEF are a Melbourne five piece, formerly making up the outfit Passport . Creating a real summery, replenishing sound, the dudes have been making waves on Triple J Unearthed scoring some digital radio airplay, and released their No Cigar EP last December. Constantly playing shows locally, the boys aren't keen to stop anytime soon, as they are the Evelyn Hotel's May residents; therefore will be playing a show every week at the said venue of this month! Considering all of [...]
The Killers have been confirmed to play at Phoenix Park and have shown some impressive curatorial skills in the process, with MCD announcing support from Bangor cherubs Two Door Cinema Club , indie-disco ingenues Haim and Odd Future wunderkind Frank Ocean as support. The Las Vegas stadium-rockers will headline the gig on Saturday, 13th July, which will be their first Irish date since a couple of arena shows in support of last year's Battle Born . While Two Door Cinema Club recently hit the O2, Dublin and Haim are [...]
Today on Robot Music I will be showcasing some new remixes that I have been listening too. We start off with a remix of my favorite lady, Ellie Goulding, who gets her song "Explosions" dubstepfied by Gemini . Not only that, I have a nice Trap remix of Rihanna's "Diamonds", an upbeat remix of "Sun" by Two Door Cinema Club, and at the end of the list I have a much different take on "Original Don" by Major Lazer.
This weeks edition of new tunes goes to indie-rockers, Foals . To be honest, I hadn't paid a ton of attention to this band up until recently, but now that I've heard the new material from Holy Fire , I'm a little bummed I didn't listen sooner. Better late than never right? Here's the deal, Holy Fire rocks - plain and simple. After binging on Two Door Cinema Club and The Temper Trap over the past few months with their recent releases, Foals is very welcome company in my speakers as they bring a hybrid version of [...]

After our time spent at Falls Festival in Marion Bay, Tasmania, we’ve developed a somewhat informative list (I make lists all the time) of 9 rules/tips, that can hopefully help out future Falls-goers by learning from our many mistakes and few victories. Rule #1: Get your grog in. This one’s key. I don’t want to make us all out to sound like useless alcoholics and that you need a bottle of Captain Morgan’s Spiced Gold each day to have a good time – but it’s the truth. And [...]
Alright folks, the Monday Morning Mix-Up is a little bit all over the place. I wish I could tell you there was some central idea or feeling to these 8 tracks, but there isn't. Just a collection of songs that shuffled into my ears this morning. Hope you are okay with that. If ever you'd like to submit a list of 8 songs for the Monday Morning/Midday Mix-Up shoot an e-mail to me at email@example.com. Have a great Monday!
Alright folks, the Monday Midday Mix-Up is a little bit all over the place. I wish I could tell you there was some central idea or feeling to these 8 tracks, but there isn't.

Sydney, Australia’s Field Day 2013 went off on New Years Day. Field Day provided amazing music including catering for one hell of a closing set, taking on Sydney’s infamously expensive inner city noise restriction costs to make sure that Hot Chip played lived. With shows from Two Door Cinema Club, Hot Chip, SBTRKT, Mark Ronson, The Vaccines, Erol Alkan, Disclosure, Krafty Kuts & A-Skillz, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Fake Blood, Booka Shade, DJ Nu-Mark, Django Django, Adrian Lux, Coolio and many many more.

It's time for the second part of our look back at the highs and lows of 2012. This time we're running down our top ten singles from the last 12 months. No mean feat after all 2012 was the year that gave us new music from AlunaGeorge, St. Lucia, Yeasayer amongst others. As with our run down of the albums you can download the playlist over on iTunes now (buying it helps us pay our bandwidth fees and helps us to keep playing you new music). 2012 - The Singles Playlist (iTunes) (Spotify) [...]
As we bring you our second slew of our Best Songs of 2012, keep in mind that as the numbers get closer to 1, our decisions were just that ...
Another year, and another top 5 gigs by bands that should not be missed live. How odd that three of them came one after another, but that's the cool thing about Washington DC. Except for December through the beginning of February (the dead of winter) and June through August (festival season), there is always a reasonably good selection of bands coming through here. But that hasn't always been the case. I am often asked on my travels why I became a music blogger, and the simple answer has always been this: when I [...]
About two weeks ago MTIB started whittling down a list of over 5,678 abums (5,679 albums to be exact) to bring you a list of our favorite albums of the year. This year we decided we shouldn't stop at just ten, but share all of the albums that were in the running as well. So, here you have it. The 50 finest albums of 2012, in our humble opinions. Although, we may not use as many big words as Pitchfork and we may not always be as 'hip', we do understand those words and we did [...]
FIELD DAY MAKES WONDERFUL …WITH LINE-UP OF ACHINGLY COOL PROPORTIONS Field Day 2013 makes wonderful! Leave 2012 behind and get excited for all the good things to come in 2013. Field Day is the New Year’s Day event synonymous with the very best in indie, dance and incredibly good times in beautiful green surroundings. Fuzzy Creative Director John Wall says: “Field Day has been Sydney's biggest, brightest and most sun-soaked new year's celebration for 11 years. This year's roll call of talent is one of [...]
Scene: the AMD Stage of Austin City Limits Festival on early Saturday afternoon. Moments before Rufus Wainwright walks out in a suit that can only be described as the result of a zebra fucking an American flag, several thousand fans – many of them wearing the burnt orange and white colors of Austin’s University of Texas Longhorns – have their eyes glued to the two large video screens at the side of the stage. Instead of highlights from past ACL fests or schedules at other stages, the screens are showing that day’s 107th edition of the [...]
Gigamesh gets it. Well, at least when it comes to the type of remixes I like. If songs were steaks and remixing the songs was seasoning them, Gigamesh would lightly salt and season manipulating the flavor only enough to make it a new experience. Whereas, many DJ/producers will douse the steak in A1 sauce. Anyway, enjoy your steak and have a good Sunday. Two Door Cinema Club - "Sun (Gigamesh Remix)" Fleetwood Mac - "Dreams (Gigamesh Edit)"
Tying one of this year's most foot-moving artists, Two Door Cinema Club , with one of this year's quickest growing DJ artists, Gigamesh, we've got ourselves a perfect marriage here. Gigamesh has some secret formula and glues it to everything he does... The result? Magic. TDCC's single "Sun" from their new album Beacon is out and available on iTunes for download. We think you'll like this one better than the original.
Hoy se ha estrenado el nuevo video de la banda de Irlanda del Norte Two Door Cinema Club para la canción "Sun", la cual forma parte de su, recientemente lanzado, nuevo álbum Beacon y es el segundo single obtenido de dicha producción. A su vez, el gran productor estadounidense Gigamesh , una máquina de crear excelentes remixes, se ha animado con su propia remezcla del tema en la cual, como siempre, no desentona y nos presenta una de sus mejores lanzamientos del último tiempo. Two [...]

I personally didn’t think these lads could do it again. Tourist History was exceptional and one of my highlights of 2010 (what a year for music). After hearing the first single “Sleep Alone”, from their new record Beacon, I wasn’t too hopeful. It was one of those things where I’d put it on again and again and again praying that they’d delivered another “Undercover Martyn”, “I Can Talk” or “Something Good Can Work”, but I just wasn’t feeling that ‘x factor’. Eventually I warmed to it a little, although I had a sinking [...]
