This Pale Fire - Single Review: Float Out
17 Dec 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Float Out is about the process of letting things go, moving forward, learning from your past experiences, growing as a result. As such, the track has an intrinsically emotional weight to it.

Miller Yule - EP Review: Miller Yule Live
17 Dec 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Miller Yule Live is a good length EP, consisting of seven tracks with a total runtime of over 30 minutes. Performing a setlist that is mostly sourced from his 2016 EP Shoot Me In The Heart (reviewed here), Miller Yule has also added in his single Diamonds (released in November 2017 and reviewed here), a stripped down adaptation of Six60's Don't Give It Up, and a new track to spice it up further.

Local Safari is the latest release from Christchurch Indie group Mako Road The four-piece provide a very laid-back and relaxed (albeit short) EP as we enter the prime summer road tripping season.The EP begins with its titular track Local Safari, with some pleasant keys and a generally unhurried pace, controlled by a simple hi hat and snare drum combo.

Ghost Who Walks - Gig Review: Ghost Who Walks @ Anthology Lounge, Auckland - 30/11/2018
06 Dec 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Cheers and squeals are let out around Auckland’s Anthology Lounge as The Rubics take to the stage. The six-piece group have been working on making a name for themselves as the groove-makers of the Auckland scene, and from the sound of the audience, they know exactly what they are in for.

Gig Review: 2Cellos @The Civic, Auckland - 3/12/2018
04 Dec 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
People were abuzz as they filed into The Civic to get to their seats. Many eyes were enjoying the venue itself as one of Auckland’s last remaining atmospheric theatres, with its soft-top design that floats above the auditorium, with stars and clouds that recreate the Southern Hemisphere sky-scape.

Lisa Crawley - Single/Video Review: Baby It's Fine
30 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Lisa Crawley’s latest single Baby It’s Fine is a delightfully unhurried and soulful pop track. Starting with a slow strum of the guitar and an almost acoustic vibe to the bass, there is a slow melancholic edge to the song.

Night Bus - Single Review: Korean Restaurant
28 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Self-described as a lo-fi electronic bedroom pop from elusive Wellington figure, night bus is definitely an obscure act. With a Facebook page created less than a fortnight ago, only 5 followers to their name, and a moniker that is otherwise impossible to search for due to common use, any further information about the artist is not forthcoming.

Baitercell - EP Review: Toka
23 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Gig Review: ZM's Friday Night Jams @ Western Springs, Auckland - 18/11/2018
19 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Ten minutes before gates open and the entrance way to Western Springs is packed to the brim with excited fans wearing cardboard Burger King Crowns in the hopes of receiving a free upgrade to the BK Stage. With some scattered cloud, the day was humid, but ultimately much more manageable, providing some respite from the intense sun.

Alice Foulds - EP Review: Oxygen
15 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The Oxygen EP is the debut release of Invercargill singer-songwriter Alice Foulds; the four-track EP having total run-time just short of 16 minutes. Opening track Not Human is really the stand out song on the album.

This Flight Tonight - Single Review: Bender & Lies
13 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Bender & Lies is the latest single from This Flight Tonight, and interestingly the fourth track released from the 2018 EP Nothing to Declare, despite being the opening track of the release. The track tows the line between raw Rock 'n Roll, and light-hearted Pop-Rock.

Shepherds Reign - Gig Review: Shepherds Reign @ Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland - 3/11/2018
11 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
It was looking to be a late night at Ding Dong Lounge with the 8:30 start time being pushed back to 9, then being pushed back even further as they waited for the patrons to make their way upstairs. Traitor’s Fate finally taking to the stage, Shepherds Reign vocalist Filivaa welcome everyone and introduced the evening with a very simple "Welcome to the Shepherds Reign party thing.

Elemeno P - Gig Review: Elemeno P @ Nectar, Auckland
03 Nov 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Nestled within The Kingslander is the Nectar function area, a lovely warm area, with a wide deep stage area. The only real downside is that the stage area has a step about four metres away from the stage that could become a trip and fall hazard during the night depending on how packed the venue is.

Tablefox - Single Review: Like A River
24 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Tablefox’s latest upcoming release Like A River, is an interesting piece. Written in the form of an internal monologue, the lyrics serve the function of either a motivational instrument or an anchor in emotional times, whichever the situation demands.

23 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Art School is the short two-track self-titled EP from Wellington five-piece, Art School. Beginning with eight seconds of silence, Clown, kicks in with pulsing synths, leading to some jazzy guitar over the top.

Greg Johnson - Gig Review: Greg Johnson @ The Pumphouse Theatre, Auckland
23 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The long labour weekend was coming to an end, and what better way to spend the free Monday than with an early afternoon musical performance. Heading down the track towards Takapuna’s Pumphouse along the edges of Lake Pupuke, the carpark was full, and the venue was packed with fans eager for the show, long before the event was due to begin.

Sticky Filth - Gig Review: Sticky Filth @ Galatos, Auckland
14 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Walking into Galatos, the sight looked rather grim; 40 minutes after the doors had opened, and less than 20 people were in the venue. Fingers were crossed that it wouldn’t be a poor turnout, and everyone was turning up fashionably late.

Gig Review: Harry Lyon @ Galatos, Auckland
14 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
A typical New Zealand spring week was coming to an end, and the weather was all over the place; tepid air, disrupted by short, icy bursts of rain. But the cold shards of precipitation weren’t enough to keep people away, and as soon as doors opened, smartly dressed music fans began to flood in.

The AJ Crawshaw Band - Video/Single Review: Life's For The Living
12 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
This Mental Health Awareness Week brings the latest offering from The AJ Crawshaw Band; track that brings light to the artists own struggles with serious depression, to the point that he had planned how he would end it. Life’s For The Living is a living testament that life does get better and passes on the words that helped him through the darkness and back to the light; “Just ‘cos you can’t see it, don’t mean it’s not there.

Helen Corry - EP Review: Later For The Real Show
04 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Later For The Real Show is the latest EP release for Helen Corry, and is a long-awaited release; after the first single Strike was made available 10 months ago, and the follow-up single La Femme having a “controversial” music video that resulted on Corry’s Facebook page being temporarily removed. While expected that the fans would have heard these tracks before at live shows, it’s an interesting move to release a five-track EP where three of the songs have already been released individually as singles.

Hault - Single Review: Red Dress
03 Oct 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Red Dress is the latest release from Wellington three-piece Hault. A blitz of a song, tracking in at only 1:40; it has that concise and impassioned sound that tells you Hault have emerged from the underground scene.

29 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Laconic Zephyr - Single Review: Seek A New Day
20 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The latest offering from New Plymouth five-piece Laconic Zephyr, Seek A New Day, is an oddly mixed track.The track is a slow builder that doesn't quite pay off in the long run.

Lookin Up - Single Review: Don't
20 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Don't is the latest release from Auckland punk 3-piece Lookin Up, and it is gritty and heavily distorted. Starting with a riff that is heavily reminiscent to vibe of KoRN's Right Now, Don't emerges into a surprisingly melodic track despite the heaviness.

Strangely Arousing - Single Review: Ladeda
20 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Ladeda is the latest single from Strangely Arousing due for release on September 28th and is a tranquil piece; cruising and comfortable. Right from the start of the track the vocals are the focal point, with lead singer Lukas Wharekura pulling off a variety of sounds; initially having the gritty crooning vocal styling of Rod Stewart before transitioning through a John Mayer sound, until finding his tone for the remainder of the track in something reminiscent of the style of Arctic Monkeys vocalist, Alex Turner.

Devilskin - Gig Review: Devilskin @ Altitude, Hamilton
14 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Two hours before the doors officially opened, fans were lining up outside of Hamilton’s Altitude Bar. Some already waiting for the 8pm doors opening, but most there for the VIP experience; getting into the venue early and receiving VIP lanyards, posters and a meet and greet with the band.

Pacific Heights - Album Review: A Lost Light
13 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
A Lost Light is the Pacific Heights album I have been intrigued about ever since I reviewing The Greystone; a single that I described as having “a relaxing, tranquil tone that makes the body want to move gracefully and simultaneously sink into a mass of blankets”. As such, The Greystone is the opening track, which leaves the remainder of the album as exciting, unknown territory.

Same Name Confusion - Single Review: My Plastic Baby
13 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
My Plastic Baby is an incredibly preppy track from Same Name Confusion. An incredibly upbeat song, with an 80’s pop-rock vibe.

Kong Fooey - Single Review: Just For The Night
13 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Just For The Night is the first single to be released in the lead up to the release of Kong Fooey’s second album Feel The Love. Well and truly moving away from the soul and hip-hop specific themes of his debut album, Final Destination, producer Jason Peters has maintained a level of funk while exploring a more pop-infused electronic style of music.

Tommie - Single Review: Better
12 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Fables - Gig Review: Fables @ The Wine Cellar, Auckland
11 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Stepping through the door of Auckland’s Wine Cellar, I was caught off-guard. Gone was the empty floor space and in its place were several rows of seats, already nearly full with what looks like a number of friends and family.

Gearloose - Single Review: Tomorrow At My Fingertips
06 Sep 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
While having previously released music digitally over the last decade on Bandcamp, Tomorrow At My Fingertips is the first official single release from New Zealand’s own Steven King AKA Gearloose ahead of an intended full album release. Instrumentally, Tomorrow At My Fingertips is a very simple track; upbeat but still contemplative, the song is driven by a simple snare/hi-hat combination.

Jessy & The Volunteers - Gig Review: Jessy & the Volunteers @ Anthology Lounge, Auckland - 24/08/2018
30 Aug 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Anthology Lounge is one of the newest kids on the block in regards to gig venues in Auckland City, and the vibe inside is relaxed. Set up with a series of circular booths and tables, the scene is set up more for seated affairs, than jamming people together in the standing area in front of the stage.

Vince Harder - EP Review: Colours
15 Aug 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Vince Harder has had a great impact on the entertainment industry in Australia to date, performing on many occasions with Australian Idol Guy Sebastian, coming third in their X-Factor series, and performing in theatre roles, such as Simba in the Lion King live production. His influence has been ever-present in the New Zealand music scene, working as a producer and songwriter, and this latest release, Colours, is one of his own works.

Bingo Fighter - Single Review: I’ve Got Zero Attention
10 Aug 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Bingo Fighter has released I’ve Got Zero Attention as their debut single. Headed by singer/songwriter Hayden Linney, this short track has a rather British Punk Rock sound, like a less abrasive and sarcastic Sex Pistols.

Bulletbelt - Single Review: Faster Than Death
07 Aug 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Their first release since their line-up change and the departure of vocalist Jolene Tempest, Faster Than Death, features the recording debut of new singer Scott Spatcher-Harrison and lead guitarist Josh O'Brien. With these changes, comes a slight change in sound, most noticeably in the vocals, switching from the higher range abrasive style that Tempest was known for, to Spatcher-Harrison naturally low, deep, rolling growls.

Jed Parsons - Album Review: Midnight Feast
31 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Jed Parsons debut album, Midnight Feast, has a subdued beginning, with some simple guitar and vocals for Real World. Some minimal acoustic effects that give the effect of playing in a large hall.

Albi and The Wolves - Gig Review: The Great New Zealand Folk Revival @ The Tuning Fork, Auckland 26/07/2018
27 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
With local parking shut down due to the overwhelming number of people attending the Dynamo show at Spark Arena, one would expect a light turnout next door at the Tuning Fork. As the show began, with a short unscripted foreword from Chris Dent of Albi and The Wolves, the audience was looking sparse, but this did not dissuade the opening act Ben Dixon.

Jed Parsons - Gig Review: Jed Parsons w/October @ Neck of the Woods, Auckland - 20/07/2018
22 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
An early night at Neck of the Woods, with doors open well before 7pm and the night set to end by 10pm. A nice early evening that still leaves the night open for those that like their late nights in town.

Hybrid Rose - Album Review: Warhol
22 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Rose Valentina Muollo-Gray AKA Hybrid Rose has put together a full album release, just over a year after the release of her cosmic album, COSMIC. The self-produced electronic artist falls mostly into the vaporwave genre, adopting influences from smooth jazz and lounge music, and the retro arcade style of chiptune.

Bartells - Single Review: Our Love May Go Away
18 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Our Love May Go Away has that straightforward, uncomplicated appeal of a John Mayer or James Blunt track, with that vocal twang of a country folk song. A simple track, with the verse and chorus composed of four repeated chords, and a short clean guitar riff layered over the top.

Boycrush - Gig Review: Boycrush @ Whammy Bar Backroom, Auckland 07/07/2018
18 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Every time I go to the Backroom at St Kevin's Arcade I feel like I’m wandering around the stairs of Hogwarts; the layout seems to change each time, or a different entrance is used, sometimes there is a bar, sometimes there isn’t. In this case, the entire stage area had been transformed into something I’ve never seen from the Backroom of Whammy before.

Pacific Heights - Single Review: The Greystone
10 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Starting with a piano riff that repeats for the first 30 seconds of the song, it has a high note that acts as the metronome and keeps the rhythm flowing until the shift. That high note is a sign of quality in its sound; the way in which it recedes and but still builds as the note is continually struck, gives The Greystone authenticity.

Fanfickk - Single Review: Cotton Candy
10 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
What would one expect from a song called Cotton Candy? Cotton candy brings that hit of nostalgia and pleasant memories of theme parks, carnivals, and other exciting activities.

Undercut - Single Review: Blue Nurse
10 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Undercut’s latest release Blue Nurse is a grungy little number, that has an early 2000’s vibe; encapsulating the energy of albums of the era, such as Hoobastank’s 2004 The Reason, Taking Back Sunday’s 2006 Louder Now, while maintaining that kiwi sound (that track brings back fond memories of when Goodshirt’s Green was released). A simple track, that maintains a good pace during the verses and is reminiscent of Sommerset’s Streets Don’t Close, with hints of the punchy power chords of Villainy’s Ammunition throughout the outro.

Like A Storm - Album Review: Catacombs
05 Jul 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Catacombs is an album that has been a long time in the making. Delayed by extra tours and re-recording, Like A Storm fans have been waiting in anticipation since the 2015 release, Awaken The Fire.

The Miltones - Gig Review: The Miltones w/ Reb Fountain @ Pt Chevalier Memorial RSA, Auckland 22/06/2018
28 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The Pt Chevalier Memorial RSA isn’t a venue that I have been in before, and after entering the venue, the merch stand had me convinced I was at the right place, but the lack of a stage or any instruments had me reasonably confused. Luckily, noticing some music playing behind a large curtain I discovered the larger half of the venue.

Phat Krunk - EP Review: Whatever You Say
25 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Hypnumb - Single/Video Review: Bullet
25 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Christchurch alt-rock four-piece Hypnumb come out with their debut single, Bullet, and an accompanying video. Straight off the bat, the opening notes of distorted guitar with reverb and delay effects, announce that we have a blues-infused track on our hands.

Alizarin Lizard - Single Review: No One Could Tell
22 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Dunedin-transient pop influenced, neo-psychedelic rock slackers Alizarin Lizard have released their second single in a month after about nearly five years of silence when they released their last album Do You Just Want Me To Watch You? This latest single, No One Could Tell, was mostly recorded in bassist Chris ‘Bugs’ Miller’s lounge, and as a result, the track has a level of fuzz and reverb to it that adds warmth and comfort.

Gig Review: Small Stage, Big Sound @ Ellen Melville Centre, Auckland 15/06/2018
22 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
I’ve not been in the Ellen Melville Centre before, but it is a really good small-medium sized venue (even if it is a little awkward to find the entrance to). With 10 minutes before the show was set to start there was a feeling of trepidation as I looked around and counted only 20 people are here all lined up against the wall like a high school dance.

Metaract - Gig Review: Metaract with Remote and Descendants of Dinosaurs @ Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland 15/06/2018
19 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Julian Temple Band - Album Review: Antarctica
12 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Frequently described as an alternative rock group, hailing from Dunedin, the Julian Temple Band like to blur the lines between genres; incorporating blues, jazz, surf rock, as well as indie pop into their music. The group have evolved over the years, over five studio albums since their formation in 2004, with Antarctica making it six studio albums.

Written by Wolves - Gig Review: Written By Wolves @ Neck of the Woods, Auckland 08/06/2018
09 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
One of the big questions in the music scene in the last few months has been, who will pick up the slack now that the Kings Arms Tavern has shut down. Galatos, Ding Dong Lounge, Tuning Fork, and Whammy have been doing their bit, but when it comes to rock gigs, one of the venues that have been overlooked in the past is Neck of the Woods.

Kendall Elise - Gig Review: This Way North @ The Wine Cellar, Auckland 07/06/2018
08 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Due to a reviewer unfortunately having to pull out of attending this show, I was asked to attend Some Feminist Club Nights #6. As opposed to the original reviewer that was lined up for the show, I have mixed heritage, but am still what would largely be referred to as a white cis male.

Holloway Holiday - EP Review: Psycho-Sensitive
01 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
As is categorical of a punk album, the Psycho-Sensitive EP by Holloway Holiday is made up of shorter tracks, with 6 songs racking up less than 20 minutes total runtime. Being more of a pop-punk hybrid, the tracks certainly aren't as short as many 40 second punk songs that I have heard, but definitely shorter than the average 4-5-minute rock track.

Model Train Wreck - EP Review: I Want That Back
01 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
A long time in the pipe works is Model Train Wreck's new EP I Want That Back. Starting with an odd chord progression and the discord provides an uplifting vibe while still causing a chill to run down the spine.

Skinny Hobos - Gig Review: Seether w/ Skinny Hobos @ Great Hall, Auckland 31/05/2018
01 Jun 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Auckland Town Hall had a jovial atmosphere, with a quick and easy process to get into the venue, short lines to the bar, and no lines to the toilet. A well set up venue, but the main reason that everything worked so well was obvious when you enter the Great Hall.

Thomas Oliver - Gig Review: Thomas Oliver @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 25/05/2018
28 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Last seeing Thomas Oliver at the Tuning Fork, the Powerstation seemed like such a drastic upgrade in venue, when you consider that it has triple the capacity. Yet when I arrived just before the doors opened, less than 20 people were lined up waiting.

Carb On Carb - Gig Review: Carb On Carb @ Portland Public House, Auckland - 18/05/2018
28 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The Portland Public House is an interesting choice in venue for me. This is one of the latest start times for a show I’ve reviewed (with the first of the opening acts not starting until 10pm) and yet this is still the earliest I've ever been in the Portland Public House.

The Adults - Single/Video Review: Bloodlines (feat Estère & JessB)
28 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
I remember when The Adults were first announced as the new project for Shihad’s Jon Toogood. The first single released gave the impression that the project would be similar in style to the comparative musical jump that Corey Taylor has between Slipknot and Stone Sour; opting for a change towards the lighter mainstream formula.

River - Album Review: Silence Of The Tomb
27 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Comprised of only five tracks, and a run-time of just shy of 20 minutes, I would be more inclined to categorise Silence Of The Tomb as an EP rather than a fully-fledged album (generally an album should have 10+ tracks and/or have a run-time of over 40 minutes). This classification is, however, a trivial matter that has no bearing on the content of the album beyond the approximation of length.

Stray Theories - Album Review: All That Was Lost
18 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
This album opens with How Long, and almost displays itself like a tease. A slow burning track that lifts in volume ever so tenderly that you have to fight the urge to increase the volume yourself.

Album Review: Dave Black/Fiffdimension - Fame & Oblivion: 2005-2012
18 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Dave and his collaborators create a number of different outfits, depending on the members involved; Fiffdimension, Dave Black and Nat da Hatt, The Winter, Ascension Band, and dAdApApA have approximately 18 combined releases on their Bandcamp page, with content ranging from 1997 to the present day. Fame & Oblivion: 2005-2012 is the middle release of a trilogy of compilations, encapsulating their work throughout the aforementioned lifespan of the collaborations.

Dick Tracy - Album Review: Dick Tracy
07 May 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Indie duo Three Feathers have a soothing gentleness and retro vibe that would generally get their style labelled as “stoner rock”. While there are definitely similarities to the genre, many do look down upon the “stoner” moniker, so instead let’s describe it differently.

Tom Cunliffe - Gig Review: Tom Cunliffe @ Pah Homestead, Auckland - 15/04/2018
28 Apr 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Off from Auckland’s Hillsborough Road, if you can find the sign for Delargey Ave within the trees that line the roadway, you may come across the Pah Homestead. A historic home that houses the James Wallace Art Trust’s collection of New Zealand Art, and on Sundays is also the home of a mini-concert series.

Modern country rocker Sharon Miller has released her debut album Family Secrets The opening track, The Wall, is a tribute to the 22nd February 2011 magnitude 6.3 earthquake, that caused severe damage in Christchurch and Lyttelton, killing 185 people and injuring several thousand.

False Heights - EP Review: No? Who...?
24 Apr 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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.

Ekko Park - Gig Review: Simple Plan with Ekko Park @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 19/04/2018
20 Apr 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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.

I Am Giant - Gig Review: I Am Giant @ Galatos, Auckland 14/04/2018
15 Apr 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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”.

30 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
*JOY* is not a producer that I am familiar with, but he has plans to release three EP’s over three months and to do so three more times throughout the next 12 months. Nine EP’s within a year is near enough the definition of prolific, but the real question will come down to whether these nine EP’s will be high quality.

Apollo SteamTrain - Gig Review: Apollo SteamTrain @ Ding Dong Lounge, Auckland 24/03/2018
30 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Apollo SteamTrain were coming from Tauranga for their first Auckland show (headlining, nonetheless), and the Auckland weather gods decided to do what it always does and give us a lot of rain throughout the day and into the evening. As the season moves further and further away from summer, the rain is icy cold, but it doesn’t stop Aucklanders from getting out on the town.

Astro Children - Single Review: Beneath the Visible Surface
30 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The latest single from Astro Children is a departure from their usual sound, with the addition of Jonathan Pearce on the synth. A step deeper into the indie sub-genre of shoegaze, Beneath the Visible Surface exhibits the elements of dreamy, psychedelic space pop.

Temples on Mars - Album Review: Temples on Mars
19 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The self-titled album from Temples of Mars starts us off with a light intro, featuring some Aladdin-esque Arabic sounding instrumentation and distorted recorded dialogue; almost coming off like the soundtrack to Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy franchise. Gradually rising in volume and layers it leads straight into Gods & Kings.

Gig Review: Storm the Gates Festival @ Trusts Arena, Auckland, 17/03/2018
18 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Getting to the venue before doors open, already the black shirts and tattoos were beginning to gather in anticipation of the days' festivities. With a selection of stalls with games, merch, food, and cars, it was odd to have the doors open a mere 10 minutes before the first act was due to start.

It was a mild Friday evening, and the plaza outside Spark Arena was bustling with a mix of people ready to see Stellar* and Mrs Brown's Boys. As Spark Arena’s doors opened, the crowds filed away, leaving the group of Stellar* fans to make the most of the outdoor seating as they waited for the Tuning Fork’s to follow suit and open doors.

Matt Hay - Album Review: Something Blue
08 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Matt Hay’s Something Blue is a simple album; a slow, relaxed pace, and soothing storytelling vocals. Opening track Last Jubilee is perhaps the most upbeat in tempo, with a melody reminiscent to that of John Mellencamp’s Jack & Diane with an extra open string twang to it from the combination of the guitar and mandolin.

With a snappy snare, a thick, distorted chug, and an opening riff reminiscent of Pantera’s Cowboys from Hell, Pale Lady have finally released their debut single, Empty Space. Forming in 2016, and winning the Battle of the Bands in 2017, there is clear evidence that they have a good thing going.

Dead Celeb - Album Review: Dead Celeb
07 Mar 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
The debut self-titled album from Wellington’s Dead Celeb, is just as hard to pin down genre-wise as it is to find anything to do with them on Google. Experimental Rock of the 80’s and 90’s is the closest I can come to truly describing their sound; with a combination of potential influences from the likes of The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Decortica, Nine Inch Nails, Chris Cornell, The Rolling Stones, Muse, David Bowie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, System Of A Down, Villainy, and I Am Giant.

Dead Favours - Gig Review: Rise Against w/ Dead Favours @ Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland - 19/02/2018
20 Feb 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
In a rather unconventional choice, the other international act that was touring with Rise Against, Berri Txarrak, would be opening the night, ahead of the local act, Dead Favours. Berri Txarrak being a band originating from Basque Country (an autonomous community in northern Spain), whose songs are sung completely in the Basque language (which is linguistically unrelated to any other known living language), they undoubtedly had a difficult job ahead of them to warm up the crowd.

Gig Review: Robbie Williams with Tami Neilson @ Spark Arena, Auckland 14/02/2018
15 Feb 2018 // review by Alex Moulton
Spark Arena has been completely changed since last night’s Paramore concert, now utilising the full arena space, and with additional stage pieces running down the centre of the Standing Floor area, the air is full of anticipation in what looks to be an immersive experience. The only opening act for the night came in the form of Tami Neilson, a country & soul singer/songwriter, and Silver Scroll winner.

I wasn't present for the Night 1 performances of the End of an Era shows, but by all accounts from those that had been there, it had been a great night with a good turnout, especially considering it was competing with large international acts performing at other venues (such as Pink Floyd's Roger Waters at Spark Arena). So I was definitely looking forward to the nights' performances.

16 Jan 2018 // review by Alex Moulton

Gig Review: Fuel with Coridian and Merrin @ The Studio, Auckland - 13/12/2017
14 Dec 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
While the sidewalk outside the venue didn’t look overly packed before doors opened, a thorough scan of the landscape revealed that there were, in fact, a large number of fans waiting to gain entry, they were just spread out along the street, rather than bunched up at the entrance. A quick chat with some of the fans revealed that we didn’t just have Aucklander’s in attendance, many had traveled far (some from the South Island) to be present on this night for Fuel; in fact, one of the opening bands hailed from Wellington, a testament to the appeal of Fuel all these years later.

Nation - Single Review: Summer
25 Nov 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
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).

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.

Heading into the Kings Arms Tavern and immediately you can tell there is something different. It doesn’t take long to see what everyone is looking at and discussing; more lighting, an extended stage with a “runway”, additional floor toms on the side-of-stage, and what appeared to be some gas cannons attached to some rather large CO2 bottles.

Bringing an international band to NZ, and selling out a venue with a capacity of somewhere around 1000-1200, on a Tuesday night, with the gig announcement only two weeks before the show was penned down to happen.

Radius Kink - Album Review: Peculiar Confessions
27 Oct 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Radius Kink's new album Peculiar Confessions is an interesting release; full of nostalgic set pieces that feel like they have no purpose beyond proving that they can exist. Tracks like Maybe I’ll Change My Name have clear influences from groups like Pink Floyd, who are synonymous with experimental alternative music, and the entire album feels a bit like that; a conceptual album, mixing styles and methods to create something completely, without a purpose or direction.

In the New Zealand mainstream rock scene, releasing a full-length album is an achievement in itself.

With minimal introduction, the new Manzo album begins with St Helens Overture; a lovely, calm, delicate piano piece. A rather impressive beginning, with a gentle crescendo, showing great use of refrain leading into the rest of the album.

Daniel McClelland - Album Review: Anxious Heart
07 Sep 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Straight off the bat, we have that gated reverb sound on the drum track; that punchy percussive character that has been synonymous with that of the pop and rock music of the 1980's, and has recently started reintegrating itself into pop music again. In this case, you get that nostalgia hit due to the reminiscence with Kenny Loggin's 1984 hit, Footloose.

07 Sep 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
"Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you, but what people call "love" is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed."The quote from the hit American adult animated sci-fi sitcom drew attention, as an early start to the evening had opening act Fire For Glory up on stage well before 8pm.

Set on End - Gig Review: Northlane with Set On End @ Kings Arms Tavern, Auckland - 26/08/2017
01 Sep 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
I arrived at the Kings Arms Tavern forty minutes before doors opened in order to avoid traffic, and was surprised to find the carpark already full of cars, and patrons waiting to gain entry to the venue. By the time the doors opened, the crowd that had amassed looked large enough to fill the venue to capacity.

City of Souls - Gig Review: Stone Sour with City of Souls @ Spark Arena, Auckland - 23/08/2017
24 Aug 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Looking around the venue and it is apparent that the stage has been brought forward. So Spark Arena (formerly known as Vector Arena) has a much smaller capacity compared to when Corey Taylor last performed with his other project, Slipknot.

18 Aug 2017 // review by Alex Moulton

Groove Lagoon - EP Review: Extended Play
09 Aug 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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 // review by Alex Moulton
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.

04 Jul 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Sitting in the car in the car park, the clouds had let loose a torrent of rain, with 10 minutes until doors open, already there was a line of at least 60 people standing out in the rain waiting to get inside and stake their position up front of the stage.Not long after the crowd has started to filter in, the first opening band takes to the stage, Stormforge.

15 Jun 2017 // review by Alex Moulton

Tablefox - EP Review: Glass Houses

Clap Clap Riot - Gig Review: Clap Clap Riot @ REC, Auckland, 05/05/2017
14 May 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
It has been many years since I have heard from Clap Clap Riot. Probably a consequence of listening solely to The Rock FM when it comes to the radio, but with a new release, it seemed like I was overdue checking them out.

Garden Party Riot - Gig Review: Garden Party Riot @ The Dogs Bollix, Auckland 20/04/2017
24 Apr 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
This trio took to the stage at Auckland’s Dogs Bollix, and they seemed a rather unassuming group. Apart from the vocalist, Paul Goddard, who dressed with a spiffy jacket and waistcoat in a look not dissimilar to Oasis and Beady Eye vocalist Liam Gallagher, the other members are dressed very casual in t-shirts and short sleeves.

Tempist Fujit - Single Review: Midnight Train
13 Apr 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
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.

Like A Storm - Gig Review: Alter Bridge @ The Powerstation, Auckland 31/01/2017
01 Apr 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Waiting outside the venue, the crowd was in disarray. There was little communication from the venue staff, and general admission patrons were mingling with those that had purchased VIP tickets, and there was no clear system in place as to where people were to go.

Ginzu and the Steak Knives - EP Review: Crow Hand

Hiboux - Album Review: Command the Earth to Swallow Me Up
12 Mar 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
With a similar style to such acts as Explosions in the Sky, Mono, and Jakob, Hiboux (pronounced ee-boo) are an instrumental post-rock group hailing from Wellington. Command the Earth to Swallow Me Up is an alluring release, with layers of instruments that provide a greater flexibility to adapt a track without disruption of the flow.

I Am Giant - Gig Review: I Am Giant @ King Arms Tavern, Auckland - 09/03/2017
10 Mar 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
With the sale of the Kings Arms, many acts have started carrying out what could potentially be considered their contribution to the venue’s swansong. Having performed at the Jim Beam Homegrown last weekend, I Am Giant lined up a follow up show at Auckland’s King Arms Tavern, for what may be their last chance to grace the stage that has been a staple of the Kiwi music scene for over the years.

Cheshire Grimm - EP Review: Rain or Shine
10 Mar 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Cheshire Grimm provide quite an eclectic mix of sounds in their Rain or Shine EP release. Their opening track, Slave to the Grind starts with a grungy bassy riff, which swiftly switches to some jazzy saxophone with some clean distorted guitars.

Brendon Thomas and The Vibes - EP Review: Wrap You In The Sun
09 Mar 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
It’s always fun to keep an ear out for contestants of broadcasted talent shows, such as The Voice, or New Zealand Idol, as it’s interesting to see whether the shows are able to properly provide the exposure needed to make a career of music, or whether the artists have their 15 minutes of fame and fade into obscurity Brendon Thomas and the Vibes, a three piece hailing from Auckland, made a name for themselves by securing the third position in X Factor New Zealand in 2015, and the only band in X Factor history to make to the grand finale. Fast-forward two years later and they are preparing for the release of their EP, Wrap You In The Sun.

For the tenth year, Homegrown has graced the Wellington waterfront providing punters with a glut of musical acts from around the country. This year, 45 Kiwi groups graced the six various stages performing to another sold out crowd on what turned out to be a beautiful day, both musically and weather-wise.

Decades - Single Review: I Was With Him
14 Feb 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
I Was With Him is the definition of New Zealand music. It has the highly melodic (but more importantly) deep notes that perfectly illustrate the New Zealand accent we are famous for, and a simple musical structure that transcends genres from pop to rock, but focuses on vocals and lyrical content over musical technicality.

Godzilla Takes New York - EP Review: Godzilla Takes New York
08 Feb 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
Many a famous star has said that Rock and Metal are dead, but releases like this are capable of reigniting that flame of passion. Godzilla Takes New York is an Auckland metalcore quintet, which despite having the common band arrangement (rhythm, lead, bass, drums, and vocals), their sound has a refreshing zeal.

Into Orbit - Album Review: Unearthing

Disjecta Membra - Album Review: Songs To Scattered Symbols
03 Feb 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
The concept of a split release is something I have only been recently made aware of, and yet it seems like a brilliant marketing tool. In this case, it is being used as limited edition merchandise for a tour, providing three new and exclusive tracks from each band participating on the tour.

Starving Millions - Gig Review: Starving Millions @ Whammy Bar, Auckland 28/01/2017
29 Jan 2017 // review by Alex Moulton
It has been several years since I last attended a punk concert, so I was pleased to have the opportunity come up to see what hardcore punk was being churned out these days. The show ended up being quite an intimate affair in a lower floor beneath St Kevin’s Arcade on Karangahape Road.
