All the Rage, January 13, 2015 – Prodigies, punks, pianos and showtunes

A bit of everything this week, including a killer track from the Sunshine Coast’s Sahara Beck. Proof positive that Australia is a fantastic country:

1. It produces exciting and interesting musicians, of which Sahara Beck is only the latest in a long tradition.

2. There’s a part of the country actually called the Sunshine Coast. To be fair, British Columbia also has a “Sunshine Coast,” but is there a Canadian University of the Sunshine Coast? No. There is not.
