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!

Always in Action!

Our favorite “somebody” has remained busy, between taking in some shows and being in the spotlight himself!

He’s been hanging with fellow producer/composer Son Lux. He’s also been seen haunting NYC at the studios of David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. Fingers crossed there’s some new collaborations and amazing new tunes headed down the pipeline!

And he’s immortalized once again in an emerging Melb mural!
