Don't think Groovin The Moo is your thing? Maybe have another think.
If you're looking to broaden your tasty selection of music and test your palate you don't want to miss this years much-loved GTM. Over the past year Nova has been testing the waters with some of the bands hitting up our regional land this weekend and listeners have been guzzling it down. Let me just remind you exactly who some of these bands are - because you may remember you loved 'that song' when you heard it on the radio and didn't quite catch what or who it was.
Now here's a name you would have heard from time to time but not quite got to know but we've played these guys on Nova. They're a house music duo from Canberra, Australia. They're known for doing some remix's of Claude VonStroke's 'The Whistler' and Pnau's 'Baby' but you'll recognise them from their track "Start Again."
Boy & Bear:Now these guys you may not be so familiar with, they are fairly new. If you love your indi folk and choral harmonies these Sydney guys will float your boat. They supported Mumford and Son's on their tour of australia and made headlines with their track Rabbit Song. They literally just released their new single Feeding Lines this month.
Now I know I don't need to emphasize who these guys are - they've been around for nearly a decade. The electro pop, new 80's wave group from Melbourne will also be there this weekend to play a killer set. They've had three albums and are internationally recognised. "Hearts on Fire" and "Light's and Music" are two of there most recognisable tracks and more recently from their new album Zonoscope you would have heard "Need You Now" and "Take Me Over."
Now we're getting international. Fact: Datarock is derived from the Norwegian word for Computer - Datamaskin and the word rock, so rock music made on computer = Datarock. Clever stuff. These guys are from Bergen in Norway and you would have heard they're name thrown around a lot. Check out their song "Give it Up".
This Perth hip hop artist needs no introduction. Remember "Jimmy Recard"? Enough said. He's going to be there smashing out his recent stuff from his new The Life of Riley album which just dropped last month - look out for Rupunzel on Nova.
The Mandurah boys will be there kicking it near where they're grew up. We've been loving these newly discovered synth pop boys recently who are often compared to the likes of Passion Pit. They just released a new single this month called "Don't Stop" which follows their last two we've been playing on Nova "Come Around"and "I Can Show You."
(Megan) We love claiming her as Australian talent but she is originally form Papua New Guinea. She's the quirky jazz, indi pop singer who just repels coolness wherever she goes. As soon as you hear this track you'll know who i'm talking about, " Sunday Best".
So there you have it a quick reminder run through of some of the acts hitting up Groovin the Moo. But there are still plenty of others you're going to want to sink your teeth into like:
