Thousand Limbs: The Aurochs – Ensnared (2022) single

Here we have the second single from Auckland-based instrumental doom outfit {Thousand Limbs}. It is taken from their forthcoming debut album The Aurouchs, which is a ten-part song-cycle based on Kakuan Shien’s Ten Ox Herding Pictures, and is set to be released later...

Medusa Glare: Lay It To Rest (2022) single

It is not unusual for me to have conversations with music lovers which revolve around me attempting to convince them there is a vibrant and exciting music scene in Aotearoa as sometimes it feels like I am coming across a new wonderful band on a daily basis, and here...

Planet Hunter: Moscovium (2022)

On April 19th, 2018, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite was launched on a two-year mission to find a rocky world with an atmosphere which could be probed for signs of life. Although it had an official name, the media just called it a planet hunter which seemed...

Ekko Park: UnMute (2022)

There are times when it is just impossible to write a review as I am having so much fun playing the music that I find myself hitting the desk in time with the drums, bopping to the beat and fully in the groove. Then the damn thing is finished, and I have to put it on...

Wizrd – Seasons (2022)

Norway, Karisma Records  43.39 mins Jazz inspired Progressive Rock https://www.facebook.com/WIZRDTHEBAND/mentions Rating 90/100 It is so refreshing to come across a band new to the scene, combining multitudes of musical techniques not only instrumentally but vocally,...

Black Sands: Black Sands (2022)

Black Sands are a real rarity in that they are a totally instrumental act, and while they bring in plenty of progressive tendencies, they are always first and foremost a metal band. The band started life as a duo of Cameron Owens (guitars) and James Trimmer (drums),...

Landlords: Codeine (2022)

Here we have the second EP from Hamilton-based quartet Landlords containing five songs at approximately 20 minutes in length. Interestingly the band are signed with a UK label, something I only realised when I checked out their Bandcamp page and could not work out why...

Anxiety Club: Old Dreams (2022)

A little while back I was fortunate enough to hear the single Carousel, and now Wellington-based Anxiety Club are back with the album. As I said in the earlier review, due to various reasons Kev Fitzsimons (Thom Cross) and Clint Meech (Matt Langley band) found...

Silcrow: Keep The Silence (2022) single

Silcrow will be a new name to many, it certainly was to me as it was only when I was arranging to see them play recently that I discovered this is the new name for Close to the Bone. I was aware of that band, but had not seen them play, although I had seen lead singer...

The Hill Country Devil: The Magnolia Sessions (2021)

Here we have another album in what to my ears is one of the most essential series of recordings ever captured. For those who have somehow managed to miss my reviews so far, the concept behind this is really simple. Label boss and recording engineer Dan Emery invites a...

Johannes Luley: Follow Your Heart (2022)

Johannes Luley: Follow Your Heart (2022)

I first became aware of Johannes more than ten years ago when he sent me the Moth Vellum album to review. Since then, I have followed his career with interest, both in Perfect Beings and solo, and I was somewhat intrigued to discover he was releasing a new album, but...

In The Shallows: The Undercovers Part 1 (2022)

In The Shallows: The Undercovers Part 1 (2022)

A few months back I was fortunate enough to catch up once again with one of my very favourite duos, Danni Parsons and Lance Shepherd, otherwise known as In The Shallows. That night they were joined by bassist Andy Bain of the mighty Fur Patrol, and while they...

Dub Asylum: Beg, Steel or Borrow (2022)

Dub Asylum: Beg, Steel or Borrow (2022)

I have no idea who many albums I have reviewed over the last 35 years, but it is countless thousands, while the words written are well into the millions, but I must confess this is the first time I have ever been asked to review an album where steel drums are the main...

Jaqualyn Taimana Williams: In Between (2022) single

Jaqualyn Taimana Williams: In Between (2022) single

In Between is the third single from the upcoming 2023 EP Guns Of Dialogue, but is the first time I have personally come across Jaqualyn Taimana Williams. As with her debut album she has been working with producer Tim Sneddon and Chris Chetland, and when I read that I...

WHAT”S GOIN’ ON

  • Derek Sherinian – Vortex
    by Graham Thomas on September 28, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    An erupting bubble of synths, an assertive nimble keyboard riff with a touch of funk, some power chords, some more layered keys as we romp away… yes, it’s the latest Derek Sherinian album, Vortex. His style is instantly familiar, as is Simon Phillips drumming, so it’s most certainly business as usual. If you enjoyed his [&hellip

  • Babe Ruth – Darker Than Blue: The Harvest Years 1972-1975
    by Graham Thomas on September 27, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Babe Ruth began life in 1972 as Shacklock, named after Alan Shacklock, the creative driving force behind the band. He was a gifted guitarist, composer and arranger who trained at the Royal Academy no less, and a young talent which was recognised by artist Roger Dean, who went on to encourage Shacklock to persevere, gave [&hellip

  • Crippled Black Phoenix – Banefyre
    by Mel Allen on September 26, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Crippled Black Phoenix (CBP) return with their new album Banefyre. From their early days of Pink Floyd-influenced music they have forged and crafted their own unique sound, which is difficult to put into a category as they have defined one of their own. They have also been an active voice for the voiceless in the [&hellip

  • King’s X – Three Sides of One
    by Jez Rowden on September 25, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    At last! When it was announced that King’s X would be returning with their first studio album in 14 years, along with a trip to play in Europe again, there was much rejoicing at my house. This is a band that I have enjoyed hugely since their early albums in the 1980s. They’ve always stood [&hellip

  • Red Bazar – Inverted Reality
    by Leo Trimming on September 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Red Bazar return with Inverted Reality, their first album since 2019 and their third vocal album with Peter Jones of Camel and Tiger Moth Tales. Inverted Reality takes the Red Bazar sound in an even heavier direction than their previous release Things as They Appear, which cast a critical eye on some significant issues, and [&hellip

  • Bent Sæther – Motorpsycho
    by Roger Trenwith on September 23, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    With the recent release of their Ancient Astronauts album, TPA’s Roger Trenwith spoke to Motorpsycho‘s Bent Sæther about the album, the band’s way of doing things after evolving for so many years and future plans… This summer, the land has burned, literally and figuratively across Western Europe, even in England! I hope you managed to [&hellip

  • Jo Quail – The Cartographer
    by Jez Rowden on September 22, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    If you’ve ever had the good fortune to see Jo Quail perform one of her solo shows, you’ll know what dazzling events they are. Armed only with a natty looking electric cello and a few tons of electronic witchcraftery, she beguiles even the most unexpected audience with her skill and grace. When she played at [&hellip

  • Mahogany Frog – Faust
    by Graham Thomas on September 21, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The Canadian experimental noise merchants return with a soundtrack to the classic 1926 silent film Faust directed by F.W. Murnau. It tells the legendary tale of temptation, corruption and redemption, and Mahogany Frog certainly succeed in producing a soundtrack which matches the darkness of the story. It was conceived before the recording of their last [&hellip

  • Pymlico – Supermassive
    by Rob Fisher on September 20, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Sometimes an album simply doesn’t resonate. No matter how ardent a fan of the band you may be, irrespective of the number of listens you give it in the increasingly forlorn hope of discovering the sprinkling of magic which will make it come alive, it remains stubbornly, steadfastly, cold to you. That was my experience [&hellip

  • The Blackheart Orchestra – Hotel Utopia
    by David Edwards on September 19, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Hotel Utopia is the stunning new album by the award-winning, Manchester-based multi-instrumental duo of Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington. Elegantly weaving together elements of prog, art-rock, pop, electronica and classical music into enchanting, cinematic soundscapes of both power and delicacy, whilst Chrissy’s fragile, ethereal and emotionally charged vocals soar above them. The overall effect is [&hellip
