NEWS: Voting now open in the Budweiser People’s Choice Awards


A couple of weeks ago we posted about the Budweiser People’s Choice Awards, the follow-up award to their search for Australia’s top electronic DJ/Producer (the winners of both awards will be announced at the Australian Independent Music Awards on November 7th). Voting has now opened so you can hit the link below to check out the finalists across a range of genres, cast your vote and go into the draw to win a night out for four people, including flights to Sydney, five star accommodation, and VIP attendance to the Australian Independent Music Awards (AIMAs).

Fingers crossed that the public sense of good taste prevails and we get something great like this rather than generic, nauseating pulp like this winning the award.


VOTE for Doubtful Sounds in the 2013 Pedestrian.TV Ultrabook Blogster Awards


For the last three years Pedestrian.TV have been hosting the Australian Blogster Awards which cover a range of subject matter including music, food, fashion photography and more. Last year Doubtful Sounds was honoured to be included in the music finalists and the good news is that DS has again made the final list of nominees. Just as exciting is the fact that our Americana blog Post To Wire has also made the cut in the music category!

At DS we are celebrating five years as a blog with reviews of over 220 live shows and 330 albums. We’ve interviewed members of Radiohead, Wilco, The Stooges, Dirty Three, The Velvet Underground, The Cult, Dinosaur Jr, Ride, Afghan Whigs and many more and kept our readers informed about the latest tours, news, new releases and videos that have excited us. This isn’t a general music website trying to cover everything – it comes from our personal tastes and hopefully you think we are doing a good job of it. If so you can hit the link to cast a vote (in the form of a Facebook Like) in our favour. Vote for Post To Wire while you are there too!

Thanks in advance!
