Howdy folks, and happy twelves!

Thank you to everyone who came to the last 2011 Aussie shows I played with my 10-piece band. The Belvoir Amphitheatre, Hobart Botanical Gardens and festivals over New Year's were all fabulous. Maybe you remember this little tune we played around with? It's a swell number.

Yesterday the lineup for the fantastic Coachella Music & Arts Festival in California was announced. And I'm playing it! The festival is set to take place over two weekends in April. View the full lineup here

I had some amazing news over Christmas- 'Somebody That I Used To Know' was the number 1 single in Germany, and it's currently spending its second week at that spot! I can't wait to play in Berlin and Cologne again, and visit Hamburg and Munich for the first time in a few years.

Now's a good time to remind you that voting in the triple j Hottest 100 closes on Monday 16 January. 'Somebody That I Used To Know' is one of the many tracks off the Making Mirrors record eligible for this year's poll. I'm hoping maybe personal favourite 'State Of The Art' gets a guernsey too. Votes can be cast here

Finally, you might have already seen Walk Off The Earth's cover of 'Somebody That I Used To Know'. Five people, one guitar. A brilliant cover and video. It's already "gone viral" (8.5 million views in a matter of days!) so you might want to consider putting on one of those little Japanese face masks. I love those.
