Let the people speak Compilation album 2010
Let the people speak is a compilation of Kiwi artists from all different genres.
The album opens with a track from indie rockers Artisan Guns with the rockier of their two featured songs there slower side being shown later with the track 'Autumn'.
Midnight Youth have two tracks on here 'Just For Once' and 'All On Our Own' and what great tracks they are. Iím a big fan of these guys and canít wait for a new release from them.
Steriogram feature on here with two tracks the classic 'Walkie Talkie Man' and the new track 'Moving On' and each showcases the bands wit and style. I really love 'Moving On' and canít wait to see these guys when they play down here over summer they give us another reason to love kiwi rock.
For the Pop Rock fans Dane Rumble has the songs 'Everything' and 'Cruel'. Personally I much prefer 'Everything' but 'Cruel' still has a great summer pop flavour. Heís come a long way since Fast Crew with a far more mature sound and production.
Girl rockers Ivy Lies have 'Addicted' on here and the softer number 'I Lie Awake' very much sounding like something Avril Lavigne would write.
Jonny Loveís track 'Not The First (Not The Last)' is the second of his two tracks showing his mellow side while his first track on here is a little more rockier track called 'Weight of Tomorrow'.
I love 'Problematic' from Pistol Youth it reminds me very much of the Australian band Thirsty Merc I was disappointed there was only one track from these guys.
Soljah add a completely different sound to this compilation by being a reggae band and definitely have plenty of Funk and Soul. Thanks to bands like Kora and Katchafire the eyes are being for more Kiwis to local reggae bands.
Nathan Haines brings his Jazz and Soul flavours to the track 'Pathway' showcasing this manís immense talent. After seven albums and many other collaborations this track shows why he is one of our hidden treasures. 'Pathway' almost sounds like a Simply Red track very smooth sounding.
Autozammís 'Breathe' is the rockier of their two tracks before their other track 'Closer' to home both which have featured quite well on the kiwi charts.
Lisa Crawley has two very soulful songs on here both very mellow but quite catchy.
This compilation is mainly Pop rock orientated but shows some of our other sides to our kiwi flavour. It would be a great summer beach and bbq album catering for most tastes and having an upbeat feel to it. Some awesome Kiwi talents here makes you realise you need to go back to the record store for more tracks from these bands. Samplers are such a tease and such a pleasure.
