Hooray...I'm was soooooooo excited to get word that the latest AND greatest, Angus & Julia Stone video premiered. "And The Boys" is the brand new video/single from the brother/sister duo from Oz.

They should be wrapped or about to wrap their latest album, with a U.S. tour in the works. Tickets are already on sale for dates in Australia, with dates in the states in May scheduled. They are so amazing to see live, I can't wait to see em again!

In the meantime, head over to iTunes and download this single with bonus bside singles "Change" & "Take Away."


Following the October release of their fifth studio album Love 2, French electronic pop duo AIR (Nicolas Godin and JB Dunckel) return to the U.S. for their first live shows in three years. The “Pocket Symphony” tour of 2007/08 saw the band travel to the Far East and beyond, stage their largest New York play to date at the Madison Square Garden Theatre and established them as truly international artists.

Now in 2010, AIR is preparing for the first of several U.S. trips, the first of which will be a traditional tour showcasing the breadth of their catalog and re-interpretations of new songs from the “Love 2” album. For the first time on these dates, the band will be performing their live show as an intimate three-piece with Godin and Dunckel taking on full instrumental and vocal duties. This follows a successful short tour of China and the Far East in late 2008, where they experimented with a core of three musicians and the current live set took shape.

For the North American dates, AIR will be joined by British drummer/percussionist Alex Thomas (Bat For Lashes, Badly Drawn Boy) and guest opening act will be AM, a revered multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles with a flare for distilling global music influences into his own unique and infectious pop confections.

AIR’s 1998 debut album Moon Safari struck a unanimously harmonious chord with music lovers around the globe and has since become an electronic pop classic. Since then AIR have enjoyed many career-defining moments including the now legendary sold-out show with full orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl in 2004. The band has also garnered many accolades, both at home and abroad, and have written, produced and collaborated on a breathtaking array of music projects.

With 5.5 million worldwide album sales to their credit, the band has become de facto ambassadors of modern French pop, whose fans are drawn back to each new musical adventure by their inventive arrangements, and a playful yet unpredictable palette of sounds and songcraft.

Prior to their North American journey, AIR will set out on a European tour in early 2010 starting at the legendary Casino de Paris in their hometown and ending at the legendary Roundhouse in London on February 26th.
