As you may have heard, rapper Tom Scott (Homebrew, @peace, Average Rap Band) is back with a new project – Avantdale Bowling Club.
The album is a fusion of jazz and hip hop, featuring some of the best musicians in New Zealand – Jonathan Crayford, Julien Dyne, Ladi6, Mara TK, Esther Stephens, Teeks and many more.
Some words from Tom on the new album... "This record is about...growing up. I think. It's about dealing with your own stuff for once. Accepting responsibility, maybe. It's a self help book addressed to myself. And just like every other piece of art ever made in history of the hominid, I was going through some shit when I was making it. I'd just left home and everyone I knew, looking to chase a dream. It was an awkward phase, like stage two puberty. I was learning how to be grown. Humility had my pride in a headlock. I was the old man at the art exhibition, the young boy at the art gallery. Everyone was in a K-hole, I was at K-Mart."
