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...
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...

Gridfailure & Megalophobe: Harbinger Winds (2022)

Gridfailure & Megalophobe: Harbinger Winds (2022)

Here we have the third collaboration between Gridfailure’s David Brenner and Megalophobe’s Benjamin Levitt who between them contribute a wide array of instruments including vocals, guitars and basses, keys and synth, drums and percussion, accordion, theremin, cello,...

Personal Igloo: Old Me (2022) single

Personal Igloo: Old Me (2022) single

Personal Igloo is the solo project of Auckland based song writer/producer, Hamish Nixon, which brings together soul and pop with some raspy vocals and a love for bands such as Kings of Leon. Old Me is the first track from his forthcoming second EP, which will be out...

Felix Danilo: The Territories West (2022)

Felix Danilo: The Territories West (2022)

The latest album by Felix Danilo finds him exploring different musical textures where the main (and often only) instrument is a multi-layered guitar full of reverb. Although the album is mostly instrumental, he is joined by singer Kayla McGee one song, and by his...

One Man Bannister: The Saddest Noise (2022)

One Man Bannister: The Saddest Noise (2022)

One Man Bannister is the name used by Hamilton-based Matthew Banister when he is not performing in one of his bands such as Sneaky Feelings or The Changing Same, and this is his latest album. It is somewhat unusual in that for the 16 songs he took poems written by...

Ripship: Ripship Is Online (2022) single

Ripship: Ripship Is Online (2022) single

I first came across these guys a few months back when I saw them open for Daniel Armstrong & The Monsoons and I was immediately impressed by their approach which was both effective and infectious, so I was pleased when this single recently came my way. They are a...

Greta O’Leary: Body, Now (2022) single

Greta O’Leary: Body, Now (2022) single

It has been quite a while since Greta released her debut single, Outnumbered, but now she is back with the follow-up which is a precursor for an EP which is hopefully not too far in the distant future. What we have here is a solid case of alt-folk/dream pop which is...

Tablefox: Give It All (2022) single

Tablefox: Give It All (2022) single

I thoroughly enjoyed the last Tablefox album, Battles, while I was also fortunate enough to recently catch them supporting Capital Theatre so was looking forward to their new single. Musically they are based in alt rock, but that covers a multitude of sins, and they...

Carcass: Torn Arteries (2021)

Carcass: Torn Arteries (2021)

Seven years ago, I was fortunate to see one of the mightiest pairings ever at a metal gig, namely Carcass supporting Napalm Death, a line-up I never thought I would see in New Zealand. Most of the world see Shane Embury as the godfather of grindcore (and rightfully...

Ole Devil & the Spirit Chasers: Apocalypse blues (2022)

Ole Devil & the Spirit Chasers: Apocalypse blues (2022)

Genre: Psychadelic Blues Produced by Label/Studio: Apollon Records Format: CD / Album, 42min https://www.facebook.com/oledevilandthespiritchasers Rating 80/100 One of the joys, resulting from the mission of reviewing music is getting to know more about the band and...

The Rvmes: What’s Troublin’ You (2022) single

The Rvmes: What’s Troublin’ You (2022) single

It seems to have been ages since I last heard from The RVMES, and I can see from looking through my records that it is more than a year since I last saw them play, and also more than a year since I reviewed their excellent album, Lifetime. Now they are back with the...

Goldsmith Baynes: E Rere Rā (2022)

Goldsmith Baynes: E Rere Rā (2022)

Earlier this year I was fortunate to be asked to review Tō Ihu, one of the four singles to be made available from this album so far, and I was just blown away by what I was hearing. Allana Goldsmith is a classic jazz songstress with warm and embracing vocals while...

    by Alex Driessen on October 3, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Poppodium De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, the Netherlands Thursday, 29th September 2022 On a cool, dark autumn night, Poppodium Boerderij once again sets the stage for a performance by the Finnish band Von Hertzen Brothers (VHB). Again, because these musicians played here previously during the Progdreams Festival in 2019. At the time, they were already able to [&hellip

  • Barrdo – Équivoques, Vols. 1 & 2
    by Nick Hudson on October 2, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    It’s not often that I would review two albums together, but there’s really no way to do justice to either volume of Barrdo’s Équivoques by tackling them individually. In terms of length, the two could certainly have been released as one title, but there’s very good reason for the separation into two volumes. Much of [&hellip

  • Melody Maker Poll Awards Concert 1972
    by Bob Mulvey on September 30, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The Oval Cricket Ground, Kennington, London Saturday, 30th September 1972 Howzat! 50 & Out This time last year I decided to mark the 50th anniversary of the ‘Goodbye Summer’ festival, the first of three similar events held at the Oval Cricket Ground in the early ’70s. There were two subsequent festivals the following year, the [&hellip

  • GGGOLDDD – This Shame Should Not Be Mine
    by Nick Hudson on September 29, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    A couple of years ago, I attended the Ten Years of Chaos celebration of Chaos Theory’s first decade. It was an incredible gig of two halves for me, each half chock full of the weird and wonderful. As I wrote in my review, “the first half ended with Vodun’s magnificent performance. I should have been [&hellip

  • 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
