Date\Time: Monday 15 August 2022, 1-2pm Location: Building 6, Room 6c14, University of Canberra (google map: https://goo.gl/maps/nCwaAASE18hsR9Qs6)Zoom:https://zoom.us/j/97129882430?pwd=VWFLWm5ZaXpMa0ZMS1VGMUFrY1VmQT09Meeting ID: 971 2988 2430Passcode: 864037 Details: Paul Magee discusses his new book Suddenness and the Composition of Poetic Thought (Rowman and Littlefield: London and New York, 2022). The book interrogates the much-cherished concept of ‘poetic thinking,’ by focusing in on what interview and draft materials reveal of how poets actually do think, when in the act of writing. Findings from cognitive science and linguistics are brought in to corroborate poets’ descriptions of their practice. It transpires that poets’ experiences of composition cast light upon a key aspect of the human interface with language more generally: the fact that that we lack the cognitive capacity to know the exact wording of what we are about to say, in advance of the second or two in which we come to utter it. Magee contends that this everyday suddenness imports a constitutive uncertainty to all forms of speaking, however much we try to ignore it. It is central to our experiences of writing as well, contouring the distinct shapes assumed by both our poetic verse and our prose.

Fremantle/Walyalup singer-songwriter Noah Dillon announces his debut album, biggest ever national tour, and shares a new single and video for ‘Nothing Matters’. Following the April release of ‘Drifting Apart’ the second take from his forthcoming LP, has all the early ‘90s tinged indie-rock elements that Dillon is known for. ‘Nothing Matters’ was written about being in a love bubble with a partner and the feeling that nothing can bother you while you're in that realm. Dillon had written the track after being inspired by UK group The Magic Gang who, like Dillon, bridge the gap between early ‘90s aesthetics with a new pop intention. The track is filled with lush instrumentation and vocal arrangements that are irresistibly catchy and memorable, with rich guitar, bass and drum syncopation that keep the song floating along with a carefreeness that is infectious. The anticipated release of his debut album, Kill The Dove, out August 12th via Dew Process and Universal Music Australia is just the beginning for Dillon. He sees the album as the first stepping stone in a long-lasting musical career and something that he's been planning for since he wrote his first song at age 16. That narrative for Dillon has never changed during that time either. He’s always found writing about the specific – his own relationships and interactions – has produced a universal appeal that has assured him that he’s on the right path as an artist and a creative force.“It’s a bit of a coming of age record,” says Dillon of his debut LP, “I was figuring out who I am while writing the record. Having a real clear vision of what I wanted to do with my life, and then having two and a half years not being able to travel was a minefield to get around. I’ve never been good at staying still. I’ve always been moving, still’s never been good for me, so it’s been such a learning curve of three years of learning how to be peaceful. When I go back to this record I’ll be able to hear where I was and how far I’ve come” Across the 12 songs on Kill The Dove (produced by Andy Lawson) Dillon shows his capability to express a broad spectrum of sounds and shades. From effervescent, boisterous pop (‘Drifting Apart,’ ‘Drip Dry’ and ‘Nothing Matters’) through to tender, introspective moments (‘Comfort Is Not The Reason,’ ‘Who You Used To Be,’ ‘Hold Me In Your Arms’ and stunning album closer ‘Don’t Go Away’), it as an album that swerves into post-punk at times (‘I Can’t’) and even boasts a collaboration with international indie punk Queen, Sarah Tudzin of Illuminati Hotties – ‘Broken But It’s Working.’ Their teaming up is yet another example of how Dillon maximised the slow time in lockdown teaming up with the famed songwriter and producer over Zoom. Noah Dillon's electric live presence and ability to write songs that poignantly capture the human condition and spirit has earned him a wide range of praise in Australia and beyond. In 2021 he signed with Dew Process, earned consistent national radio play for singles ‘That’s Just How I Feel’ and ‘Alive And Kicking’, and ticked off a bucket list item, performing triple j’s Like A Version. Dillon and his band have wowed audiences across the country in recent years with headline tours and support slots for the likes of Holy Holy, San Cisco, Spacey Jane, and Teenage Jones. They are now about to embark on their biggest headline tour to date, hitting 12 dates across Australia in August and September. The new single ‘Nothing Matters' by Noah Dillon is out now, with his debut album Kill The Dove out Friday, August 12 via Dew Process and Universal Music Australia.

The four-piece gained multiple nominations at the Queensland Music Awards and National Indigenous Music Awards, won the Levi’s Music Prize in 2021, and recently rocked a powerful cover of Thelma Plum’s Better in Blak for triple Like A Version.

If you had to describe Adam Hyde in one word, the word that would probably come to your brain the quickest is 'fun'. As one-half of Peking Duk, Hyde has been behind some of Australian electronic's most lively and festival-ready records of the last decade, and on the live stage, the duo - the other half made up from Reuben Styles - are always capable of taking the energy up to 110%, regardless of whether it's in the form of a headline show or in the early afternoon of a US festival, where only a handful of people likely know their names.Born after an extensive North American tour with Peking Duk, Keli Holiday came after Adam began experimenting with music of his own, music as inspired by acts like New Order and Joy Division as it was by the more dance-focused acts Peking Duk are often listed alongside. In the burst of inspiration, he carved out 12 tracks in just four weeks - which you'll be hearing on a forthcoming debut album, still to be announced - sharing them with Golden Features' Thomas Stell who then forward it onto The Presets' Kim Moyes; both adding their own flourishes and touches to the work, making it what it is now.We Don't Have To Know was a brilliant note to kick everything off; one that really seems to amplify what Adam Hyde wants to bring through Keli Holiday. There are bursts of Hyde's signature high-energy charm - I don't think that's something you can ever take away from his work - but it's warped and morphed around this kind-of dance-rock backing, almost like a modernised LCD Soundsystem with a bit of a heavier dance music emphasis. For many (seemingly including Hyde himself), it offered a source of escapism, and an opportunity to venture away when you were stuck in the walls of your home. Keli Holiday's second single Where You Feel, unveiled today, keeps that trend continuing. Those nods to classic acts like New Order and Talking Heads rear their faces again, with Adam's spirit meeting the talent of Alex Lahey, who adds a further dimension to the track's already quite layered sound. "I added the salt and she added the sugar. I recorded the guitar chords and it felt right, without an ounce of force - it all fell into place and felt right," he says on the track.Like much of Keli Holiday's material, there's a sense of freedom within Where You Feel which is capable of plucking you away from your worries, transporting you to the world it was made amongst - California's sun-soaked coast - even if you're thousands of kilometres away in real life. "Where You Feel is sweet Mexican cola in a song, it’s the sweat dripping from your cheeks, it’s day drinking in the streets of sunny California," he continues, talking about the refreshing euphoria you can feel within the song's backbone.

Grammy®-nominated trio MIDLAND will return Down Under in December 2022 as they bring THE LAST RESORT: GREETINGS FROM TOUR to Australia. The country music superstars will kick off their tour in Canberra on the 8th December before making their way up and down the East Coast of Australia. Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically acclaimed freshman album, “On the Rocks” (Big Machine Records), features 13 tracks with song writing credits from each member alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Launching to rave reviews from notable outlets such as the Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone Country, “On the Rocks” was declared “the year’s best Country album” by Washington Post. Their debut No. 1 single “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first Grammy Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards and nominated for three CMA Awards including Vocal Group of the Year, Single of the Year for “Drinkin’ Problem” and New Artist of the Year. Their second album LET IT ROLL was a top five release on the Australian Country album ARIA Charts in 2019 and coincided with their first visit to Australia as part of the international contingent headlining the inaugural C2C Music festival in September 2019. Showcasing their Texas County/traditional country style, they gripped a local audience that loved their retro 70s country sound and songs about lost love, endless desert roads, electric rodeos and drinkin’ problems. Midland will release their new album THE LAST RESORT: GREETINGS FROM (Big Machine/UMA) in May 2022. The trio spent the pandemic exploring their creative depths, from progressive Country that grew out of “Urban Cowboy” through Dwight Yoakam’s post-traditionalism, and arrive with their third studio album. Midland once again tap into that post-urban cowboy sound that their fans love. The album is accompanied by a European and US Tour from May 2022. Midland’s special guest is Australia’s own country music superstar *Travis Collins. Since bursting onto the scene with Start the Car in 2005, Collins has fast established himself as a leading light in Australian song. Nine studio albums later and Collins is a regular mainstage fixture at Australia’s peak country music festivals and routinely plays to sold-out crowds across the country. His most recent album, Wreck Me (2020) reached No.1 on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, debuting in the Top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart, and landing at No.4 on the iTunes Australian Albums Chart. It also landed Collins his second ARIA Awards nomination for Best Country Album. Collins is a multiple Golden Guitar Award winner. Pre-sales for THE LAST RESORT: GREETINGS FROM TOUR will commence from Friday, 6th May. General on sale will begin Tuesday, 10th May, 10 AM local time. *Travis Collins not appearing in Melbourne
