  • bob daktari,

    Enjoying the short sets, minor gripe they haven’t split them up into tracks like last year… makes repeat plays of the tracks I want to overplay a tad harder, then again maybe this is a good thing. Looking forward to the night at the KA, was super fun last year

    Shunkan whose on the Fancy New Bands billing has her debut EP up for sale or streaming

    Is this the sound of modern day Invercargill – I do hope so :)

    And for them that like a little acid (non synthetic aural goodness) the Lord Of The Isles fact mix is great, at around 40mins in oh my *smiley face* https://soundcloud.com/factmag/lord-of-the-isles-may-14

    choice

    Yep, that's pretty choice.

    Oh! A heads-up from the producer would have been good on that one ...

    My bad. But don't you get the weekly email preview?
    Matt and Karl have got some good (film-related) tunes, for sure. And their new site for the NZIFF currently lists four Festival films, all music titles...

  • Ken Double,

    Never heard a T Rex to Doors segue before so hats off to Mr Ahbez for that. And kudos to him for declining to be "achingly melancholic" about it. Must be the influence of his very good band. Non-specific sadness seems to be the resting pose of so much Pitchfork rock these days, so yay for some yays.

    My very favourite obscure-ish band in all the world (Wussy) released another stonking record (Attica!) on Tuesday.

    Helped along by this from the awesome Merrill Garbus, who I swear is star material. It's been a good week in Melrose I tell you.

  • Geoff Lealand,

    So, I guess you are not all rushing out to buy Geoff Sewell's latest dribblings for Mother's Day? He was allowed to get away with quite extraordinary self-promotion on Jim Mora's programme this afternoon,

    I like that Wussy... Halloween of Attica! sounds good also. Now listening to the cover of Ceremony on You Tube.

  • Russell Brown,

    As is sometimes the case, a bunch of tracks landed on Soundcloud in the 12 hours following publication of the Friday post. They seem worth including and they're all free downloads:

    Malia & Boris Blank - Tears Run Dry (The Dimitri From Paris Dub)
    https://soundcloud.com/dfp/malia-tears-run-dry-the-dimitri-from-paris-dub

    Moby - Natural Blues (Deepend Rework)

    Pharrell - Happy (Cousin Cole's Reggae Mix)
    https://soundcloud.com/cousin-cole/pharrell-happy-cousin-coles-reggae-mix

    That last one is a stupidly large bushel of sunshine.

  • JacksonP,

    This is three years old, but Mr Urlich played this on his bFM show this morning, and I got hooked on the bassline.

    Seemed to follow on nicely from your burst of sunshine. :-)

    Looking forward to seeing them next week.
