Urbantramper - Urban Tramper - 'Rise & Ride Toward' album review
05 Dec 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
Ok, I’ll admit, before I listened to this album, I had never really heard of Urban Tramper. Their name rang vague bells in the back of my mind, perhaps I’d heard snippets on the radio or seen a poster in the street somewhere, but if you’d played me one of their older songs I probably wouldn’t have recognised it.

Diesel Phoenix - Diesel Phoenix - 'Here's Something We Prepared Earlier' album review
05 Dec 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
'Here’s Something We Prepared Earlier' is the new album from Auckland five-piece Diesel Phoenix, a hard hitting record which throws together rock, punk, pop, and even a little bit of metal. The album opens with the eerie instrumental track 'Willard’s Run', a song which provides a haunting introduction to the rest of the album.

Eru Dangerspiel - Great News For The Modern Man album review
21 Aug 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
With any experiment, there are always going to be some things that work out great, and others that don’t really go down so well. Therefore, with any experimental album, the same is bound to happen.

Cairo Knife Fight - Cairo Knife Fight - Iron album review
01 Aug 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
When I first listened to this album I immediately got the impression of movement. The first track definitely felt like it was driving towards… well… something, I wasn’t quite sure what at that stage.

Good Laika - Good Laika - Followed by a Trail of Sparks review
30 Jul 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
The press release that came with this album read, “When listening to Good Laika’s sophomore album Followed by a Trail of Sparks, you could be forgiven for thinking you’d stumbled across some lost soul’s travel diary.” It was an interesting introduction to an album, so I sat with eager anticipation as I played it through for the first time.

Fat Freddy's Drop - Dr Boondigga and the Big BW
11 Jun 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
I fell in love with this album about five and a half minutes into track six. Up until that point I was reasonably impressed with the album, but I felt like Fat Freddy’s Drop hadn’t quite captured the vibe that made their first album so immensely successful.

The Veils - Sun Gangs Reviews
07 May 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
A word of warning – on the whole, Sun Gangs seems pretty slow. And to be fair, it’s true that the album contains one or two tracks that are indisputably subdued, title track Sun Gangs being one that immediately springs to mind.

Sola Rosa - Get It Together review
11 Apr 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
There is something irresistibly funky about this album, and it hits you within seconds of pressing play. The opening track, The Ace of Space, has a kind of Ocean’s Eleven quality to it, and as I listened to the rest of the album I never really shook the feeling of being engrossed within a Las Vegas casino heist.

The Mint Chicks - Screens Review
31 Mar 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
First things first, DO NOT judge this album the first time you listen to it. That’s what I was tempted to do, because in all honesty, after listening to Screens once through I was a little disappointed.

Needles and Bees - A Quilt of Conversation
22 Feb 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
The words “hidden gem” do not even come close to describing A Quilt of Conversation, the debut EP from Needles & Bees. How this band seems to have slipped under the radar of so many kiwi music fans, myself included, is rather astounding, as the music they are producing is a pleasure to listen to.

The Datsuns - Headstunts Review
30 Jan 2009 // review by lukefitzmaurice
The Datsuns always seemed like a high school band to me. True, originally they were, but to me they were always reminiscent of a group of kids desperately trying to prove themselves as professionals.
