  • bob daktari,

    The Beck's partnership is with the NZ Music Commission not IMNZ :)

    Estere is fantastic - if you've not had the pleasure seeing her live is a most enjoyable experience, she has a really endearing personality

    Wish I could say the same for Janine live but I've yet to have that pleasure, Dark mind however has been often heard on my music playing devices - she's wicked cool

    Diplo and Lorde I really want to hear!

    Go the talented woman! And another long weekend

    Duh. I mean, like, I actually knew that (having linked to their press release and all) but my typing brain did not. Fixed now.

    This has been ripping my shit up recently, Swindle's remix of new Little Dragon tune Klapp Klapp. Goes off.


    And forget your exercise regime, all you need to do is get bouncing to the Soul Mates Mos Def / Marvin Gaye mashup, Ms Fat Booty

    a dearth in the family…

    It features a lot of cuddling and caressing

    If ever
    any nation
    ever needed
    a lot of
    it is
    as ever


    Listening to Joe Biden recently…
    the things their leaders say

    give that country
    a hug
    and then
    get it to
    stand back

    and take a long
    hard look
    at itself

    Not my birthday,

  • George Darroch,

    That remix is pretty good. I'm still amazed at the talent that's flying out from that young woman, and the response she's getting from the world.

    i just need ..
    time to get back to full gollum girl fitness before i go out playing shows again

  • Kimberley Verburg,

    Not sure how much rest Lorde is going to be getting between now and June because she still has dates in the US and Europe before she gets to hit the studio. I've got a ticket to her show in Utrecht at the end of May, which doesn't seem to have been cancelled (yet). I'm not sure whether to be happy about that or not!

    Wow, love Local H's take on Team!
    Also love anything Eno does, obvs. Hadn't heard that one before though Russell.

  • Russell Brown,

    Just did some high-grade kitchen-dancing to that A Hori Buzz track. The version in the video turns out to be the radio edit -- the full-length A-side is some goddamn funky genius. One of my favourite local tracks of the year.

    In the unlikely case Estere listeners missed her charming interview...
