What Do You Want?

The visuals for our live performances of What Do You Want? were created by an incredible animator from Australia called Lucinda Schreiber. Created with coloured paper and stop-time animation techniques, it's a beautiful piece, hope you enjoy.
The Basics: Ingredients
2012-12-05 09:55 by TravisB
Some of you may be familiar with the music that Kris Schroeder, Tim Heath and I made as The Basics over the years, but if you're not, we've collected a bunch of songs from our various records together in a groovy little package titled Ingredients. You can download it here, or get it on cd here. Delicious!
Stay tuned for a collection of unreleased songs (newer things we never released, demos, live favourites) called Leftovers which is also out soon digitally and on vinyl.
2012 ARIA Awards

I won a bunch of pointy trophies at Australia's ARIA Awards the other day! The categories were Best Australian Live Act, Best Male Artist, Best Pop Release and Album of the Year. Craziness!
Must say the sweetest thing was sharing the award for Best Cover Art with my dad Frank for his painting that became the Making Mirrors artwork. Also, big congrats to Francois Tetaz for taking out Engineer of the Year for his work on my record, but I'm sure also for his excellent work on fab albums by Bertie Blackman and Architecture in Helsinki amongst others recently.
