Shayne P. Carter played a set spanning his entire career from Double Happys to Straitjacket Fits and through to his current work as Dimmer. Guest reviewer DJ3chord got to experience the night in Auckland, New Zealand… The lovely garden bar beckoned – balmy, calm starry night, happy banter and Stella… I missed the support band, […]
written by Josh Hetherington There are a couple of things you hope for at every gig. A good venue and great sound are always up at the top of the list – and for a band like Kyuss (or Kyuss Lives, as I gather they’re having to call themselves in the absence of Josh Homme […]
Real Estate came through with the jangly and sparkly, indie guitar pop goods on their second album Days that they released a few months back. They are already on the line-up for Golden Plains 2012 and now they’ve announced additional AU dates and a couple of shows in NZ as well… Friday 9th March – […]

by Chris Familton Residents of Auckland New Zealand, Cool Cult are a post punk trio who released their six track self-titled EP a few months ago and though I was impressed on first listen it is only now, coming back to it again that I’m struck by how mature and sonically engaging the songs are. […]

by Chris Familton Popstrangers are the latest in a long line of New Zealand bands to emerge with a psychedelic and moody take on pop-tinged post punk. Their debut album Antipodes proves the band aren’t just riding on the hype of a few singles, instead it shows they have a strong idea of the sounds […]

words by Charles Hemmingson / photo courtesy of Veronica McLaughlin (13th Floor) Soul is when you take a song and make it a part of you — a part that’s so true, so real, people think it must have happened to you. … It’s like electricity — we don’t really know what it is, do […]

Auckland, NZ duo Show Me Where It Hurts are next week officially releasing their debut single ‘Show Me Where It Hurts’ at Lucha Lounge on Friday April 4th with support from Betty Loves Elvis. After a couple of years of demos, studio recordings (at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios) and live shows (including a support slot […]
This self-titled debut finds Auckland-based Thee Rum Coves continuing the strong lineage of garage rock from ‘60s originators like The Sonics, through the UK beat and punk scenes, the power pop of Sunnyboys and onto its modern manifestation in bands such as The Hives and The Datsuns. Two members (singer/guitarist English Jake and bassist Jimmy […]
Aucklanders Trust Punks have carved themselves a healthy reputation over the last couple of years and now they have a debut album under their belts. It’s a strong showing too with twists and turns aplenty as they deploy their melodic post-punk sound across seven songs in a brief 24 minutes. Their range and ability to […]
The Auckland quartet have made an auspicious start to their recording career, signing to Spunk who are releasing their debut album across Australia and New Zealand. They’re one of many acts currently making waves with a 90s flavoured sound yet theirs is a blend of influences that makes it hard to pin them down as […]
They’ve been quiet for a while now but finally Auckland trio Street Chant are back with a new song and video ahead of the release of their second LP. ‘Pedestrian Support League’ is an epic 5 minute track that ebbs and flows across wistful guitar, some great melodic basslines and some incisive observational lyrics from Emily […]

Currently split between Auckland and Sydney, Trust Punks have been focusing their time recording their second album. Double Bind is out on July 22nd via Spunk Records.

Auckland band Trust Punks return with their sophomore album and in the process they’ve tightened their sound, ratcheted up the tension and broadened their interpretation of post-punk. On 2014’s Discipline they mixed jangling guitars and sparkling, ramshackle melodies and, though those are still a key part of the mix, they’ve now emboldened their sound with … Continue reading ALBUM REVIEW: Trust Punks – Double Bind
Sere hit the ground running on their debut self-titled release. It’s a three track EP but it could easily be considered a mini album with its 24 minute runtime and the varied terrain they cover. The doom quota is high from the Auckland quartet yet never in a super-serious, studied manner. These guys can hammer … Continue reading EP REVIEW: Sere – Sere
