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.

DateMonthYear - Single/Video Review: March
07 Dec 2017 // by butch181
DateMonthYear’s latest release, March, is a piece of minimalistic beauty. Starting with some simple notes on the keys, the composition rises in energy with the addition of guitars before returning to a minimal output, ebbing and flowing.

Gig Review: Cheshire Grimm @ Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland - 24/11/2017
06 Dec 2017 // by butch181
It was a reasonably quiet evening at Ding Dong Lounge with Auckland music fans being split between multiple venues that were all putting on shows at the same time. Heading upstairs there was a relaxed atmosphere, as punters from downstairs came up to check out the bands that were on show for the night.

Nation - Single Review: Summer
25 Nov 2017 // by butch181
Nation's new track, Summer, instantly hits you with some high notes and some sultry lows on the vocals, reminiscent of Laughton Kora's style, led by some jazzy funky bass and a very Jamiroquai-esque hook in the chorus. With a very basic chorus lyrically (easy to remember which makes it likely to quickly become a crowdpleaser at live shows).

Gig Review: Coridian @ The Wine Cellar, Auckland - 10/11/2017
23 Nov 2017 // by butch181
The underneath of St Kevins Arcade is the place to be if you are looking for up-and-coming, or alternative musical acts. Find your way around the maze of rooms and hallways, you have Whammy, the Back Room, or the Wine Cellar, all in close proximity, all pumping at the same time.

Robby Thorne - Single Review: The White Thorn Track
23 Nov 2017 // by butch181
Creating a hybrid of two distinct musical genres is a tightrope act; trying to simultaneously display and maintain the characteristics of both the Rock and Country genres in a way that feels organic to the audience. Robby Thorne strives to achieve this task by the addition of the amplified electric guitar to an otherwise country track.

Miller Yule - Single Review: Diamonds
23 Nov 2017 // by butch181
Diamonds has a beautifully clean guitar riff that resonated immediately at my core. A fresh sound, but so incredibly familiar too.

Cheshire Grimm - Video Review: Slave to the Grind
19 Nov 2017 // by butch181
A rather unorthodox request, having already reviewed the EP, but we were asked to review Cheshire Grimm's lyric video for their Slave to the Grind track from their EP Rain or Shine. The video was created by Jesse Wheeler from Cloudfall Media.
