  • Chip Matthews,

    Martyn Pepperell linked me to this yesterday: http://soundcloud.com/estere. Couple of mighty fine tunes there.

    And, cause I had a day yesterday reliving my love of Living Colour’s first bass player, Muzz Skillings, ’ere you go.

  • Peter Darlington,

    Have I posted this one previously?

    We played it on our show and even if you're not a fan of the Wub Wub it's a great watch for the old school boardgame cleverness.

    Also, I spoke about Max Romeo on Simon Grigg's music site Extended Play this week;

  • Peter Darlington,

    Oh, and the crowd singalong of Sierra Leone by Mt Eden Dubstep with my 16 yr old in the Boiler Room at BDO 2011 was a highlight. Didn't know anything about them but the young crowd packed into the tent sure did, it was levitating!

  • Sacha,

    It's called Dunes, and there's all you need to know about living now in New Brighton and making art in the cover alone

    Beautiful

    How can she be so unfeeling to that poor battery charger, I hope her car won't start.

    Janet L - I suspect that this is you (and the L isn't just for Lurker!) ;- )
    Call me again (or email), I lost the piece of paper with the number you left on the answerphone...

  • Dave Patrick,

    Some klezmer for a Friday - the Klezmatics

    And a sweeter song from them


    And some crazy Finns - Alamaailman Vasarat, who sometimes manage to sound heavier than the heaviest of metal, even though they're paying cellos

  • Russell Brown,

    I ran out of time for Soundcloud scouring today, but I reckon this is pretty amazing:

    Destiny's Child - Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)

    Down-pitched vocals ftw.

  • Gareth Davidson, in reply to gareth pemberton,

    Only thing this tune is missing is the double clap:

    dib - clap - dib - clap - dib - clap - dib - clap
    dib - clap - dib - clap - dib - clap - dib clap clap

    I don't think there's a song been written that you can't drop a double clap in to - although some lend themselves to it more than others.

  • Hebe,

    Love those LEDs' Outer Room swirls. The pictures: South Brighton,
    Marine Parade, the QEII roundabout -- whoever would have thought they could look cool. And at 2.00 the fairy lights on the right are Smash Palace and the wall-less Knox Church shows up well.

    apologies for shamelessly self promoting, but I released (aka uploaded to bandcamp) my new album:

    self destruct sequencer

    and appreciate your ear traffick.

  • Mike O'Connell, in reply to Hebe,

    Look forward to seeing those LEDs live again sometime soon. BTW, while on Chch music, RIP Stephen McIntyre, former Chch-based musician who died recently in Auckland. He was in early 80s Flying Nun combo Ballon D'Essai and was for a time in Blair Parkes' All Fall Down.
