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.

False Heights - EP Review: No? Who...?
24 Apr 2018 // by butch181
Starting the EP off, In My Memory, begins with some light piano chords and delicate vocals from April Nisbet. With an incredible short vocal hook of a “chorus”, and layers of harmonies and additional backing vocals, the audial performance is so captivating that the gradual addition of instrumentation is almost not noticed until the end of the track.

Gig Review: The Killers @ Spark Arena, Auckland 20/04/2018
21 Apr 2018 // by butch181
The night started early, with Alex Cameron, an Australian musician who is friends with Brandon Flowers, having assisted in The Killers latest release, co-writing five tracks. An interesting act, they imbibe an electronic 80’s element to their music, with a David Bowie/Sting vibe to Cameron’s vocal style.

Gig Review: Simple Plan with Ekko Park @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 19/04/2018
20 Apr 2018 // by butch181
An hour to go before doors open and there is already a group of fans lining up outside of the Powerstation. An impressive feat but considering that it has been 13 years since Simple Plan last performed in the country, one would expect the big fans to be ready to get their spots at the front of the stage.

Jaggers x Lines - Single Reviews: Come to Rest & Problem Drinking
15 Apr 2018 // by butch181
Two tracks from Jaggers x Lines turned up in my email for review today, and while self-described as an eclectic approach to pop, that is an understatement. With a combination of jazzercize audio, piano accents and horned instruments, Problem Drinking is an audibly invigorating mix in an otherwise stale genre.

Looking For Alaska - Single Review: Calling Out
15 Apr 2018 // by butch181
Calling Out has the pacing of a hit dance track, but the style is very much ballad-esque. Soft, thick vocals from Amy Maynard, she almost struggles with the pace to start, trying to hang onto those sultry notes while guitarist Aaron Gott keeps pushing the track onwards.

Gig Review: I Am Giant @ Galatos, Auckland 14/04/2018
15 Apr 2018 // by butch181
I have been following I Am Giant from the start; since the release of their debut single City Limits, their first New Zealand shows back in 2010, before their three studio albums. I knew it was going to be an emotional night, as it was their final Auckland show before their hiatus, but I underestimated the extent of it all.

Gig Review: Mastodon & Gojira @ Trusts Arena, Auckland 31/03/18
01 Apr 2018 // by butch181
Storm the Gates has definitely been following the “Go Big or Go Home” philosophy and is yet to put on a show without issues, but as far as this Easter Show is concerned, at least they weren’t the reason for the problem and tried to keep the fans as updated as possible. The problem instead came down to an issue with the freighting of Gojira and Mastodon’s gear, which was looking like it would lead to the cancellation of the show.

Single Review: Harry Parsons - Real
30 Mar 2018 // by butch181
Starting with a deep reverberating piano, Harry Parsons starts his singing in the lower ranges of his vocal range “Let it all go, let it all out, crying on my shoulder, I’ll be looking over all of your fear, all of your doubt…”, immediately sets the tone of the song, as something contemplative and human. None of the trash that mainstream music has been throwing at us, charged with lyrics about money and “b*tches and hoes”.
