The Ten Best Albums of 2015 You (Probably) Didn’t Hear
Before we shut the door on 2015 for good, here are ten albums that deserve a second look (or more likely first, if you missed them this year). Who knows, you might wanna revise your own list after reading this…
GALLERY: Listen Out 2015 – Sydney
It was a very hot, very sweaty Listen Out 2015 – featuring Joey Bada$$, Alison Wonderland, Childish Gambino and more. Yep, we know. Some of these people look CGI… must have been the heat?
GALLERY: FBi Presents Small World Festival 2015 at Sydney Park
SPOD covered AC/DC and let off a large number of glitter bombs. All Our Exes Live In Texas stole our hearts. PVT were restored to glory. No-one covered that horrifying Disneyland song.
Art We Heart :: Abdul Abdullah
Abdul Abdullah is the sharp, critical and on-point voice of many marginalised members of society. Check out his latest work at the MCA’s Primavera 2015, opening September 22.
GALLERY: Courtney Barnett & Teeth And Tongue at The Metro
Our favourite celebrator of the mundane Courtney Barnett brought the little things to a sold-out Metro audience in support of her new record (and FBi album of the week) Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. Supported by Teeth & Tongue.
FBi‘s Guide to the 62nd Sydney Film Festival

Into the Darkness: Dark Mofo 2015 Lineup Announced
The lineup for MONA’s annual winter festival has been set free. Gareth Liddiard, The Preatures, KLO, Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, jelly art, art camp at Cradle Mountain and demon purging on the winter solstice… it’s a dark Dark Mofo, and it’s very tempting!
GALLERY & VIDEO :: Gang Of Youths – Local Live at FBi
Having built a name for their raw and engaging live shows, we were thrilled to have Gang Of Youths play our final Local Live at FBi gig, presented by JD Future Legends. They premiered tracks from their debut record ‘The Positions’, and snuck in a cheeky Joni Mitchell cover.
Listen :: Owen Pallett on Friday Arvos
We’ve been playing his music for nearly 10 years, so it was about time Owen Pallett showed his face in our studio. The mega talented Canadian spoke with Sweetie & Shag about soundtracks, David Lynch, Final Fantasy and his favourite music to cook to. Oh, and burps.
GALLERY :: FBi Presents Real Estate at Oxford Art Factory
Having expanded to 5 members for their latest record Atlas, Brooklyn-via-New Jersey band Real Estate brought their new lineup to Australia for the first time. They played a sold-out show at Oxford Art Factory to an adoring crowd, who were treated to an extended encore.
