Belinda Gillett: Homing (2020)

Belinda Gillett: Homing (2020)

I have no idea how long I have been in contact with Steve Mann at Backwater Records, but it has been quite a few years, and one thing that delights me is that he continuously strives to find great singers and give them an opportunity to shine, never trying to mould...

Black Altar / Kirkebrann: Deus Inversus (2020)

Black Altar / Kirkebrann: Deus Inversus (2020)

Polish band Black Altar and Norwegian act Kirkebrann (which apparently means “church burning”) have both been releasing split albums in recent years, with the former not releasing an album of their own since 2008 and the latter not since 2013. I find that a little...

The Commander-in-Chief: Berit, Vol. 2 (2020)

Berit Hagen is best known as being a shredder, but here she has gone for a totally different approach where she accompanies herself on either acoustic guitar or piano. Here she can be found bringing together both classical and modern styles, in a manner which is both...

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: CSNY 1974 (2014)

Originally released on Rhino Records in 2014, I came across this on a promotional music site I have been given access to (giving a music addict access to a major label promo site which contains albums going back years is cruel and unusual punishment). As I had not...

Here is the latest single from Auckland-based band Investigator who are based around the songs of Adrian Drew (guitar, vocals). Adrian paid his dues by playing acoustically wherever he could get a gig, but these days he now has a full band which comprise David Crowhen...

Rain: Hold Me Down (2020) single

Rain: Hold Me Down (2020) single

Here we have the third single from Wellington singer-songwriter Cathy Alexander, and this time around we see her working in a reggae style. Now to be fair this isn’t my favourite genre, and I would be hard pressed to list many albums of that genre within my...
