OUT NOW: TEMPORARY COMPILATION In the 80's the Dunedin Double went on to define a sound emanating from the second largest city in the South Island, now Temporaryis picking up the baton. This new compilation, featuring 13 young Dunedin acts, was put together and released by Fishrider Records and includes five bands, Opposite Sex, The Shifting Sands, The Prophet Hens, Males and Trick Mammoth, associated with the label. Temporaryis available on both wax and CD, plus if you nab an LP version it comes with a free 'zine featuring writing, art and a discography about the bands. Grab it here.
NEW RELEASE: PALS Isn't it ironic that everyone thought home taping was killing the music industry and now it has become a great introductory format for local bands. Haha, irony aye, it's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.... Anyway, the point of this article is to let you know that Auckland scuzz-psych trio PALS have released their debut on cassette! Eight tracks long, with a top notch collaged cover, PALS4EVA is the perfect gift from the band to you.
There are just under 10 copies left of the double LP pre-order for Jakob's upcoming album Sines.
Courtney Barnett is playing a sold out King's Arms next Wednesday, but if you missed out on a ticket why not snap up our last copies of her debut The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas.
Before their performance at the Rockquest finals, Doprah are taking over Auckland's Galatos on September 26. Support acts include HIGH HØØPS, Grayson Gilmour, Heavy, Couchmaster + more to come. Tickets from UTR.
