Sherpa have released the video for their latest single ‘Love Film,’ from their soon-to-be-released new album.

Mavis Gary – the moniker for Adrian Ng of Dunedin’s excellent Trick Mammoth – has released the first tracks from an upcoming full length release. Not dissimilar in sound and tone to Trick Mammoth, in the lo-fi focus and attention to delicate melodies, paired with colourful, distorted arrangements, Mavis Gary does however shift the focus […]

Cults – I Can Hardly Make You Mine [stream]

cults

I had a mini and I guess fortuitous Cults revival a few weeks back while making a friend a playlist. The pop-rock’n’roll of the self titled 2011 record even at the time felt like it was a summer throw away record; a happy-go-lucky, energetic aural accompaniment to a damn good time. Listening back, there’s still a […]

Ghost Wave have released the video for their new single ‘Bootlegs,’ from their upcoming new record Ages. Filmed in Christchurch, it depicts a flower growing amongst the rubble of the post earthquake city, with a little helping hand (and adhesive).

Auckland based 4 piece The Bonzai Birds have released a new track titled ‘Wrong Is Right As Rain.’ An eclectic, polished and refreshingly live sound, ‘Wrong Is Right As Rain,’ sits somewhere in a Brit-pop, psychedelic, guitar heavy rock’n’roll world. Musically it’s strikingly proficient, with excellent guitar riffs and tones, strong vocals, and a really […]

Flume has released the video for his single ‘On Top’ feat. T.Shirt. The video cuts between a live set and an almost neon billboard style filter featuring T.Shirt. While hardly breaking new ground on the music video front, where cut up live clips come music videos are a dime a dozen, like many cliches it’s […]

shapeshifter

Shapeshifter have released the video for their new single ‘In Colour,’ from the album DELTA. Directed by Nick Dwyer, it’s an unabashedly ‘warm fuzzies’ video, focussed on the power of music, to connect people & the joy that ensues, and you’d have to be some sort of hardened cynic to not appreciate that.

Wellington dark pop due Black City Lights have released their latest single ‘Give It Up’ through Stars & Letters Records. It’s a heavily electronic affair, with big reverbous echoes and wet, layered vocals, reminiscient of the darker side of the 80s that Black City Lights seem to inherently channel. The strong melody, along with the […]

The Dodos – Confidence [stream]

dodos

San Franscisco duo The Dodos have released the new single, ‘Confidence,’ from their upcoming 5th album, ‘Carrier.’ There is something about the tone of Meric Long’s voice that made songs like ‘Walking’ from Visiter strangely visceral songs, above and beyond the tracks themselves (which isn’t to say they aren’t powerful enough on their own merit). […]

It’s obvious from the first few chords, paired with the beginning of the video, that Loui the ZU has something up his sleeve with the new video for ‘In the Winter.’ The track itself is polished as hell, with a great pairing of Lydia Cole’s voice and folk sensibilities, and a stripped back but effective […]
