South For Winter: Acoustic Sessions (2022)

Earlier this year I agreed to review a concert of the Nashville-based husband and wife duo of Nick Stone (vocals, guitar) and Dani Cichon (vocals, mandolin), without previously having heard any of their music and it is fair to say I was blown away. I was fortunate...

Kevin Kastning & Laszlo Gardony: Levitation I (2022)

On Kevin Kastning’s latest release we find him on his favoured 36-string Double Contraguitar, and he has been joined this time by Internationally acclaimed Boston-based jazz pianist and composer Laszlo Gardony who is Professor of Piano at Berklee College of Music and...

Anxiety Club: Carousel (2022) single

Here we have the latest single from Wellington-based Anxiety Club, taken from the forthcoming album Old Dreams, but anyone expecting more of their guitar-led music is going to be in for quite a surprise as there has been a major shift in their sound, caused by...

Jamie McDell: Extraordinary Girl (2018)

Last Saturday I travelled over to Kumeu with photographer Steve Bone to catch Jenny Mitchell, a wonderful country performer, and while I was aware she had a guest in Jamie McDell I had no idea who she was as I had previously not come across her. We listened to both...

Jamie McDell: Jamie McDell (2022)

Generally, but not always, it is debut albums which are self-titled, and there must be a real reason for an artist to do that later in their career (unless of course you are Peter Gabriel and do that for your first four solo albums, just because). There is no hiding...

Sidewinder: Vines (2022)

I came across Wellington-based Sidewinder last year when I was asked to review their “Walk of Ishi” single and was mightily impressed with what I was hearing, so even though someone else grabbed the album to review for MNNZ I was determined that I was also going to...

Ward 10: Curing Those Who Are Normal (2007)

Over the last year I have become friends with the reprobate Ant Ward (Just One Fix) and his lovely long-suffering wife Gaylene, and when I was writing the press release for their new album (check out Bleeding Afterglow) we started talking about Ward 10 and I said I...

Written By Wolves: Prologue (2018)

I still have to pinch myself when I realise I have known these guys for just 15 months, as their music has become an incredibly important part of my life. I reviewed a show last year and was immediately a massive convert to their bombastic mix of full-on metal and...

Written By Wolves: Secrets (2019)

The year after ‘Prologue’, the boys were back with their debut full-length album, ‘Secrets’. 13 tracks, 52 minutes in length, this was what the guys had been building to for the previous few years. If I thought it was hard to review the EP, this is just about...

Junior Wells: Blues Legend (2022)

Junior Wells will always be thought of being one of the greatest harmonica players of the post war age, replacing Little Walter in Muddy Waters’ band when he was just 18 in 1952. He was releasing material under his own name by the following year, but it wasn’t until...

Achilles Complex: Jack In (2022) single

It has been a while since I heard from Hamilton-based quartet Achilles Complex, some 18 months since I reviewed the single “Vice”. They are now back with a new EP in the works, and “Jack In” is the first single to be taken from that. I previously thought they fitted...

T-Bone: Good ‘n Greasy (2022)

T-Bone: Good ‘n Greasy (2022)

Here we have the debut album by Wellington-based Kiwi folk Americana act T-Bone, and mighty fine it is too. The quintet comprises Gerry Paul, Aaron Stewart, Richard Klein, Michael Muggeridge, and Cameron 'Dusty' Burnell, and they bring together an acoustic mix of...

Steve Wells: Songs For Summer Rain (2022)

Steve Wells: Songs For Summer Rain (2022)

When I heard that Steve Wells (ex{Fur Patrol}) was releasing his debut solo album I had no idea what to expect, but I know it wasn’t this! For a musician who made his name as guitarist in a multi-platinum band, there are way more keyboards here than one would expect,...

Coast Arcade: Tattoo (2022) single

Coast Arcade: Tattoo (2022) single

I don’t know how old these guys are, but given they formed in High School towards the beginning of last year I am guessing not that old, especially as they have been playing mostly all-ages gigs, although they did also open for {The Beths} in Auckland earlier this...

WHAT”S GOIN’ ON

  • Birth Control – Open Up
    by Basil Francis on June 29, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    It only makes sense to listen to Birth with a chaser of Birth Control. While one is a new band playing retro-prog, the other is an ancient group playing… funk, apparently. But are they hip, or hip replacement? I have to say I was astonished when I saw the mighty Birth Control land in our [&hellip

  • Solace Supplice – Liturgies Contemporaines
    by Nick Hudson on June 28, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The French prog scene is one I think is often overlooked and underrated. For sure, when it comes to the “classic era”, and the almost symphonic form that is often the first thought of many when it comes to how prog sounds, it tends to be the British prog bands that are the giants everyone [&hellip

  • The Aristocrats
    by Jez Rowden on June 27, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    With their latest release taking the band in a different direction, we talk to The Aristocrats about how the new project with the Primuz Chamber Orchestra, from Poland, came about, featuring reimaginings of tracks from the band’s catalogue with an orchestral setting to augment the work of Bryan Beller, Guthrie Govan and Marco Minnemann. They [&hellip

  • Magma / The Utopia Strong
    by Roger Trenwith on June 26, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    The Garage, Highbury, London Friday 17th and Saturday 18th June 2022 Roger Trenwith … and now, over to Philomena for the weather… Only in the UK – or more specifically in the southern half of the UK – could you experience a 20 degree daytime temperature difference from one day to the next over a [&hellip

  • The Bardic Depths – Promises of Hope
    by Alex Driessen on June 25, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The Bardic Depths is the result of the unlikely collaboration between a multi-instrumentalist living in Lanzarote and a recognized historian from the United States. The Big Big Train Facebook page was the catalyst, the result being a self-titled debut album in 2020. The first album by musician Dave Bandana and lyricist Brad Birzer was based [&hellip

  • Dave Bainbridge & Sally Minnear
    by Bob Mulvey on June 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    St. George’s Church, Hartlepool, County Durham Saturday, 18th June 2022 As much of the country baked in the uncharacteristically hot June weather, I was delighted to be going to church, which I have to say was refreshingly cool. Entering St. George’s Church I was minded of the Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy gig at Howden’s Shire [&hellip

  • Poets Of The Fall – Ghostlight
    by Rob Fisher on June 23, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    There is something irresistibly infectious about Poets of the Fall. I had the pleasure of meeting the band in Berlin in 2012 as part of the Temple of Thought tour, courtesy of my then teenage son who’s fanatical passion for their music persuaded me to take him on his first trip abroad. We purchased the [&hellip

  • Mental Fracture – Disaccord
    by Nick Hudson on June 22, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Everyone knows the old adage of not judging a book by its cover, but you can certainly infer a lot about an album by its cover art. Before I’d even listened to a note of Mental Fracture’s debut album, Disaccord, I was already intrigued by its cover art. The first thing that caught my eye [&hellip

  • Alex Henry Foster – Standing Under Bright Lights
    by Leo Trimming on June 21, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Following the recent release of his remarkable cover of Lou Reed’s classic The Power of the Heart the charismatic French Canadian post rock artist, Alex Henry Foster, returns to the U.K. this June for his ‘Not All Wonder Have Been Lost Tour’ so The Progressive Aspect has taken a look back to his 2021 live [&hellip

  • A Different Aspect #82
    by Bob Mulvey on June 18, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Continuing the theme of the previous ADA update (#81), we continue to feature five contrasting releases highlighting a ‘broad church’ of musical styles and genres… Featuring: – Dirty Shirt – Get Your Dose Now! – I Built The Sky — The Quiet Place Away – Jean Pascal Boffo – In Spiral – Dopapod – Dopapod [&hellip
