On Tick is the brainchild of brothers Brendan (vocals and drums) and Aidan O'Loughlin (vocals, guitar), and was formed from the ashes of their previous musical outfit, Evil Tomato, who began as a band in 2012. They came across 5-string bassist Matt Hammond when they...

Diehards of Deep Dish: Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (2021)

There is a long history of band members using pseudonyms, with Ramones probably being the most famous, and here we have a band who use pseudonyms for their pseudonyms, so we have Cheese (Joey Provolone), Tomato (Ryley Base), Wheat (Beef Richards), Mushrooms...

This Silent Divide: Lucinda (2021) single

Amber Weekes: ‘Round Midnight – Re-Imagined (2021)

Amber Weekes: ‘Round Midnight – Re-Imagined (2021)

Apparently, this album was originally released in 2002 as a promo for clubs and festivals, telling stories which Weekes heard when growing up. It has now been remixed, remastered and re-orchestrated, and made available to the wider public. Her paternal grandparents...

Swerve City: Moving Pictures (2021) single

Swerve City: Moving Pictures (2021) single

It was only when I was asked to review the new Swerve City single that I realised I still hadn’t reviewed the previous one! That’s what happens when I am not organised enough, but given I always have too much to write about and not enough time to listen and write then...

Mudbelly: Mudbelly (2020)

Mudbelly: Mudbelly (2020)

Earlier this year I ventured out in the middle of a severe weather warning into the centre of Christchurch to see Mudbelly at their album launch gig. The band had waited a long time to put on the show, as although the album was recorded the previous year, there had...

Crowded House: Dreamers Are Waiting (2021)

Crowded House: Dreamers Are Waiting (2021)

For those outside Aotearoa, it is hard to describe just how important the name “Finn” is within our musical world. For us it means Tim, the visionary who brought us Split Enz, who then roped his younger brother into the band. When that group broke up Neil went on to...

Alien Weaponry: Tangaroa (2021)

Alien Weaponry: Tangaroa (2021)

There is no doubt whatsoever that Alien Weaponry have captured the imagination not only of the New Zealand public, but metalheads worldwide, with their combination of groove and thrash metal mixing with their Māori heritage to create something very special indeed....

Domingo Candelario: Sin Palabras (2021)

Domingo Candelario: Sin Palabras (2021)

Although there is always a very Cuban base to his music, Domingo has covered many different styles, as he transcends culture and language: music is about expressing emotions honestly and he tries to be as unique as he can. As a child, his parents listened to a lot of...

Glenn Bodger : I’ll Leave The Light On (2021)

Here we have the debut solo album from Glenn Bodger, who provided most of the instrumentation himself, although he has also been assisted by former Braintree bandmate Darryn Harkness, who helped with additional guitar, bass and keyboards where required. From the...

Samantha Josephine: Fly Bird Fly (2021)

Samantha Josephine: Fly Bird Fly (2021)

This six-track EP is less than 13 minutes long, but in many ways that makes total sense, as there is a feeling within this that we are being allowed into a secret and very personal world and that it would be intrusive to stay for too long. One can imagine Samantha...

Secrets of the Sun: Obon (2021)

Secrets of the Sun: Obon (2021)

Obon is the debut album from alternative metal band {Secrets of the Sun}, a quartet based in Wellington. It has been a while in the making, in that the first single, Suffer With The Moon, was actually released a year ago while Wretched Tracks came out in February:...

Black Alpine: Black Alpine (2021)

Black Alpine: Black Alpine (2021)

The very first time I looked at the cover of this album I was reminded of Deep Purple’s In Rock, as even though that was a stylised version of Mount Rushmore, there we had dudes with long hair playing Seventies hard rock and that is the same here. I mean, we even have...

Empress: Trash Dynasty (2021)

Empress: Trash Dynasty (2021)

{Empress} were formed by guitarist/singer Lora Thompson and drummer Craig Gilliver after the demise of their previous project, {Cheshire Grimm} with whom they toured the length of NZ, played with international acts and local superstars, as well as releasing material...

Tempist Fujit: Fallen (2021) single

Tempist Fujit: Fallen (2021) single

It has been a few years since Northland quartet {Tempist Fujit} (yes, the spelling is quite deliberate) have released a single, but they are back with Fallen, which is a great introduction to the band for anyone who has yet to come across them. The band are a hard...

Roulettes: Demosphere (2021)

Roulettes: Demosphere (2021)

One may be able to discern from the title that the latest release from Roulettes (they dropped the “The” a while back) is taken from a series of demoes and home recordings. Since forming the band in the early 2000’s there have been some additional musicians here and...

Venom Dolls: The Venom Dolls (2021)

Venom Dolls: The Venom Dolls (2021)

Venom Dolls are an all-female indie punk trio who formed at the end of last year, and comprise lead guitarist Carawai Gao, drummer Summah Auvae, and vocalist/bassist Jessica Frank. From looking at their photos I can see they have played Dead Witch, so I am going to...

  • This Winter Machine – Kites
    by David Edwards on October 23, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Kites is the long-awaited third album from Yorkshire’s melodic progressive rock band This Winter Machine. Delayed by both the extended COVID lockdown period and significant line-up changes, arising from the frustrations of not being able to build upon the momentum gained from their first two albums, The Man Who Never Was (2017) and A Tower [&hellip

  • Steve Hackett
    by Geoff Ford on October 22, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    The Joy Of Being Back On The Road Again For several years, now, Steve Hackett has been alone in flying the flag for the early material of prog legends Genesis. His annual Genesis Revisited shows have highlighted what, for many die-hard fans, is the essential catalogue of classic 1970s Genesis albums. Steve Hackett’s guitar was [&hellip

  • PFM – I Dreamed of Electric Sheep
    by Leo Trimming on October 21, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    PFM return for the first time in over four years with Blade Runner inspired album I Dream of Electric Sheep, which was also influenced by the Covid pandemic. These Italian veterans certainly had a challenge with this new album – could they match the excellence of the Prog Magazine International Award winning 2017 album Emotional [&hellip

  • Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov Project – Magna Res Est Amor (Live at Babooinumfest)
    by Nick Hudson on October 20, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    I was introduced to RMP with their most recent studio album, I Am A Stranger in the Earth, and I admit to a certain degree of wariness when I took on this live album, as while RMP may stand for Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov Project, a large portion of my enjoyment of their music came from [&hellip

  • Pink Project – Past To Present Tour 2021
    by Alex Driessen on October 19, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Cultuurpodium de Boerderij, Zoetermeer, The Netherlands Friday, 8th October 2021 Here we go again! It was quite a strange sensation: only a few weeks ago I was strictly adhering to doctrine. I kept the requested 1.5 meter distance, wore my face mask and kept neatly and disciplined to (almost) all measures by the government. And [&hellip

  • The Young Gods – T.V. Sky
    by Nick Hudson on October 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    David Bowie’s latest “era” boxset will be released on 26th November this year. Titled Brilliant Adventure, it includes 1. Outside – one of his most celebrated albums, and rightly so. However, although this is a review looking back to an album from the past, it’s not Bowie’s. It is, though, one I bought at that [&hellip

  • Jon Gomm / Duncan Leigh
    by Jez Rowden on October 17, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Sin City, Swansea Saturday, 16th October 2021 Swansea is a hotbed of many things, but currently not appearances by touring artists, sadly. It has been ages since I’ve been to a local gig, so a visit by guitar wizard Jon Gomm is a must see, and it’s off I go for my first Saturday night [&hellip

  • Yes – “The Quest”
    by Rob on October 15, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    I’ve already pondered the “validity” of the current Yes lineup calling themselves “Yes,” but they are the only Yes we have. And just when we thought the mess that was “Heaven & Earth” would be the final Yes album, we … Continue reading →

  • Tony Kaye – End of Innocence
    by Alex Driessen on October 15, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    In a way, Tony Kaye (born Anthony John Selvidge) is a bit of a tragic figure: in 1971 he was fired by Yes for sticking too long to the two keyboard instruments he loved, the piano and especially the Hammond organ. The rest of the band had a clear preference for the possibilities offered by [&hellip
