Tempist Fujit - Single Review: Midnight Train

13 Apr 2017 // A review by butch181

This latest single from Tempist Fujit is best classified as an upbeat country pop rock piece. With a vibe that emanates in a similar way to Thirsty Merc's In The Summertime, Midnight Train has a meandering funky beat to it.

The guitars have a simple chord progression for rhythm, layered under a Donavon Frankenreiter-esque lead and solo, and also has a comparable sound to that of Zed and Powderfinger riffs.

The female vocals have strength and clarity, but perhaps a little too much of the focus in the song. The vocals sound disconnected from the instruments, and it affects the overall sound of it, drawing attention away from the other members of the group.

Overall, a refreshing track, with vocal clarity, and a funky blues guitar sound. An interesting time to release the track, as it feels much more of a laid-back summer tune, great for a road trip.

22 Aug 2017 // by butch181
10 bands, 1 night. As far as swansongs for the Kings Arms Tavern go, the Auckland City Rockfest is definitely doing it justice.

Gig Review: Slaves with Animal Party @ Kings Arms, Auckland - 17/08/2017
18 Aug 2017 // by butch181
The night opened with Auckland Alt-Rock act Animal Party. With a sound that could be described as a grungy take on punk rock, they powered through their vocal-centric set.

Dead Favours - Single Review: High Flying
18 Aug 2017 // by butch181
They came out of nowhere with their breakthrough single, Dig. Accompanied by a great fun music video, it took the local music scene by storm, and has shown little sign of slowing down in popularity.

Groove Lagoon - EP Review: Extended Play
09 Aug 2017 // by butch181
First out of the gates is the opening track, Shiver, which has a similar drum and bass style to that of Villainy's 2012 track Money Mouth. With clean vocals from vocalist Joel Sunde, and an infectious funky beat, that has a mix of early Jamiroquai and Incubus vibes.

The Latest Fallout - Single Review: Love On The Ceiling
04 Aug 2017 // by butch181
The Latest Fallout are a Hamilton act that fall along the Alt-Rock/Alt-Pop veins, with a style of music that focuses on the happier, more positive-emotion topics when it comes to their lyrical content. You could quite easily compare their style to the likes of Paramore, AFI, or Fall Out Boy, though their style has moved slightly away from the guitar focus, towards atmospheric keys and synth more recently.

Mishap - Single Review: Hey, Allie!
04 Aug 2017 // by butch181
Mishap's latest release Hey, Allie! is the best definition of pop punk; minimal lyrics, with a lot of repetition, with a simple chord progression and standard timing.

Mitch Alderlieste - Single Review: New Fire
04 Aug 2017 // by butch181
Mitch Alderlieste's latest release, New Fire, is a musical mix of rock genres. With an opening verse that is reminiscent of the soundtrack to the 90's and 00's teen coming-of-age movies, the chorus takes on more of a bluesy rock vibe, which goes well with Alderlieste's deep and husky vocals.
