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...

Hoop: The Brightest in the Land (2022) single

Hoop: The Brightest in the Land (2022) single

I have seen {Hoop} play twice this year so far (the third will be in a few weeks) and each time I have come away impressed with the depth and breadth of their Americana-inspired folk. This is due in many ways to having two songwriters in the band, both of whom are...

Sam Bartells: Good Intentions (2022) single

Sam Bartells: Good Intentions (2022) single

Last year I saw Sam at The Tuning Fork with a full band, and then a few weeks ago he was playing acoustically at a tiny venue in Ponsonby with just a keyboard player for support (what an incredible night that was). In some ways his latest single is a combination of...

Matt Joe Gow: Seven Years (2016)

Whilst regularly making demos and working on other projects in the studio, it would be 2016 before the next Matt Joe Gow record, ‘Seven Years’, which was released to critical acclaim and was nominated for the Music Victoria Award for Best Country/Americana Album Of...

Matt Joe Gow: Break, Rattle And Roll (2018)

Matt Joe Gow: Break, Rattle And Roll (2018)

After touring and playing numerous festivals in support of Seven Years, Matt returned to the studio in 2018 to record the follow-up, Break, Rattle and Roll. Released to wide acclaim, it went one better than his previous release and was awarded Best Country Album in...

Kreator: Hate Über Alles (2022)

Kreator: Hate Über Alles (2022)

There has been a significant change in the ranks since Kreator’s last album, 2017’s ‘Gods of Violence’, with the departure of bassist Christian Giesler in 2019 who had been there since 1995. However, founder members Ventnor (drums) and Mille Petrozza (vocals, guitar)...
