Australians are often misrepresented as a rag-tag cast of misanthropes, criminals and drunks. These cultural assumptions might have held some factual foundations during the nation's formative years, but as Australia has proven itself to be a forthright nation intent on promoting the well being of its citizens, these erst labels are unheeded and rather insulting. One group that seems to perfectly encapsulate Australia's forward-thinking 21st century cultural aesthetic is Sydney-based indie rock band The Holidays. By playing a markedly modern style of pop-friendly music with defined harmonies, all four members in the group are helping redefine how individuals living outside Australia perceive the land down under. The band released its debut LP, Post Paradise, and the album garnered positive reviews from many prominent Australian music publications.
Yelawolf (aka Michael Wayne Atha) is a Southern hip-hop artist from Alabama. Heavily inspired by Outkast--and Andre 3000 in particular---he took to rapping in the early 2000s, appearing on the reality talent program The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott in 2005. After enjoy some middling success soon after, Yelawolf was quickly signed and then dropped from Columbia Records' roster. In 2010 however, he began popping up as a guest rapper on tracks from the likes of Big Boi, Juelz Santana and Paul Wall, finding some hard-earned attention for his own work in the process. Combining traces of Eminem's eccentric flow with the production and beats found in modern Southern rap, Yelawolf seems primed to become a household name in the hip-hop world sooner than later.
