Xavier Rudd - Camden

Singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, all-round talented bastard, activist, even – Rudd is many things. To check out just how special this guy is as he plays the drums, didgeridoo and guitar, often all at the same time, get down to his Koko show, where he’ll be dipping into his 11-year-long, seven LP-strong back catalogue, as well as serving up cuts from latest LP, last year’s Spirit Bird.

£22.50, June 24, 7pm

Melic - north London

What do you get if you put a funk-rock bassist, a metal drummer, a classically trained saxophonist and a rock singer-songwriter into the same band? Easy – Melic (above). The groove-rockers from NZ have made London their home base for a while now and have been rocking you good folks the whole damn time.

The EP Nowhere I’d Rather Be is out now, and the band have a debut LP in the pipeline due this summer. Play Water Rats (Jun 26) and Bush Hall (Aug 2). Best of all, they’ll be rocking TNT’s 30th (July 28). 

£7, June 26, 7pm

Deep Sea Arcade - north London

The psychedelic Sydney indie-rockers (below) are another all-conquering component of the current Aussie invasion. They released their debut, Outlands, last November to critical acclaim, and have supported the likes of Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds, The Charlatans, and Kaiser Chiefs.

They’ve a new single out, Granite City, and a load of summer UK dates including the Buffalo Bar, the Shacklewell Arms (July 20) and the Blackadder and Friends all-dayer in Islington (Aug 10).

Splashh - Hyde Park

One of the support acts to The Rolling Stones at their first Barclaycard British Summer Time gig at Hyde Park, these guys serve up grunge and indie with sunny vibes mixed in among the scruffy tunes (and jeans).

An Antipodean-Brit hybrid (frontman and guitarist Sasha Carlson and drummer Jacob Moore are the Kiwis, guitarist Toto Vivian’s the Australian, and bassist Tom Beal is the UK component), they formed last year and their debut, Comfort, is due out July 2. 

£95+, July 6, 12pm 
Hyde Park, SW1X 7LY

Tame Impala - Hammersmith

Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker (above) won’t be suffering from lonerism when he and the rest of the band stride into London this month to cement their place as the hottest band of the moment and, surely, the best Aussie export since Guy Pearce rocked up on Ramsay Street. Well, you get what we mean.

The Perth fivesome’s sophomore LP, Lonerism, was a Best Album of 2012 mainstay, making this Apollo gig hotly anticipated. Be there or be box-shaped!

£22, June 25, 7pm W6 9QH

Tahuna Breaks - North London

Named after Tahuna Street, where they had their first jam, the NZ seven-piece are this year’s Homelanz headliners.  They’re famed for an energetic live show and a sound that’s genre-crossing – funk to reggae to soul –  and decade sprawling. A classy southern hemisphere act. 

£30, Aug 10, 12pm 
Boston Marnor Park, TW8 9JX
