Wally Gets Wild with j.views

Wally has been a busy bee collaborating with Jonathan Dagan, the talented Brooklyn-based musician, producer and visual artist known by his stage name j.viewz. This is a match made in muso-heaven, with the integration of nostalgic instruments and gadgets, a shared pastime with Wally!

Check out the goodies from their work:

Wally, WomAdelaide & More

Wandering Wally

The news broke yesterday at the ‘last Basics gig for a long while’ that our favorite guy will be heading across the seas to NYC to focus on the next stage of the Gotye project! It was a somewhat somber night for AUS fans and his Basics brothers, and we’re excited for Wally to take some time to focus on what’s next for his brilliant career!

Check out this lovely vid of Wally performing Bronte from his 2011 hit album Making Mirrors last night at the Basics gig!

Gotye Connects with Musical History

Wally’s been a busy guy! Here’s a glimpse at his involvement with the Baywara film, a story of five years with one of Australia’s (and the world’s) musical innovators, and a model of indigenous craftsmanship and creativity! 

Thanks to Paul Daley for these amazing images of Gotye connecting with the energy!
