Favorite Australian Musicians

Australia has been a trendsetter in musical innovation as of late. Some of the most distinctive and influential outfits creating music right now are products of the Australian scene. Others are certainly influenced by it.
In the words of Skrillex, "Australia doesn’t get enough credit for being so ahead of the curve in knowing music and having so much great music coming out. There’s a sound that comes out of Australia that influences the world.”
Tame Impala is a psychedelic rock project spearheaded by Kevin Parker. They have two studio albums, Innerspeaker (2010) and Lonerism (2012).
Since releasing his self-titled debut album Flume in 2012, Harley Edward Streten has gained global prominence for his laid back and atmospheric electronic tunes.
Fronted by singer, songwriter and guitarist Nai Palm, Hiatus Kaiyote is a self described "future soul band". They released their debut album Tawk Tomahawk in 2013 and are in the process of releasing their second album By Fire soon.

Tame Impala is awesome! I love Cut Copy and The Presets too if I had to name other Aussies I'm into. I think they're all labelmates?
I love Tame Impala! I had no idea they were from Australia!
Tame Impala is a great band! Seen them twice in two weeks this year. Pond is worth a listen, Nick and Jay's side project.

Someone Like You Lyrics
https://www.elyrics.org/someone-like-you-lyrics-adele/ “Someone Like You – Lyrics” I heard that you’re settled down That you found a girl and you’re married now. I heard that your dreams came true. Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you. Old friend, why are you so shy? Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light. I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it. I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded That for me it isn’t over. Never mind, I’ll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you too Don’t forget me, I beg I’ll remember you said, “Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead” You know how the time flies Only yesterday was the time of our lives We were born and raised In a summer haze Bound by the surprise of our glory days I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it. I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded That for me it isn’t over. Never mind, I’ll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you too Don’t forget me, I beg I’ll remember you said, “Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.” Nothing compares No worries or cares Regrets and mistakes They are memories made. Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste? Never mind, I’ll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you Don’t forget me, I beg I’ll remember you said, “Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”. Never mind, I’ll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you too Don’t forget me, I beg I’ll remember you said, “Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”
Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
In-N-Out Comes To Australia; Sells Out Instantly
Thanks to the glory that is social media, 'foodie' culture has allowed for plenty of marketing potential in the restaurant industry. When we have a good meal (or, at least, an incredibly aesthetically pleasing one), we take a picture for Instagram, we check-in on Facebook, we leave a review on Yelp. In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Compete.com, 50% of adults aged 18 - 32 years said they become aware of particular foods and restaurants via social media. Which is why, when California fast food chain In-N-Out Burger made its way to Australia this week, the results were unlike anything you would've expected in a pre-Facebook generation. Because of their viral success, In-N-Out is able to open 'pop up' shops all around the world, allowing local food porn enthusiasts just four hours to be able to try their famous burgers for themselves. Because of the limited time and the increasing concept of 'FOMO', the lines are understandably huge, and Sydney, Australia's case was no different. (Aussie food blogger Rebecca Sullivan called it "herd mentality in its most embarrassing form." I call it, "How dare you underestimate the majesty of a dope-ass hamburger!") Unfortunately, the In-N-Out pop-up only had enough ingredients to make 300 or so burgers, so employees gave out wristbands to the first 300 people in line, and then sent everyone else on their way. (Will this make them rue the day they met In-N-Out? Will this only make them try harder next time? Who knows.) But, as a Californian, this whole event had me thinking: Have you had In-N-Out before? Do you want to try In-N-Out? If you don't live near one, and an In-N-Out pop-up came to your neighborhood, would you try to go?
