David Sutton - 40 Album Review

03 May 2014 // A review by Peter-James Dries

Hot off the heels of his album, Cheese, David Sutton has released 40, ten tracks of upbeat, catchy and very easy listening songs that sound like a relic from my father's generation.

In a world where over produced is a prerequisite of commercial radio play, comes an album with instruments that actually sound real, all performed by David Sutton himself.

Tinged with Bob Dylan, the Stones and the Beatles and the sixties in general, 40 sounds better put together and mature than Sutton's previous outing. While I enjoyed Sutton's humour on Cheese (I mean it was called Cheese, and the opening track... ha.) I feel 40 comes across as a more professional release. 

One of the real strengths of David Sutton's music is what you can't experience with the CD alone. I'm talking about the clever self-produced music videos on David Sutton's Youtube. Wellington locals will recognize a lot of the filming locations, and might even spot themselves in Sutton's video of this year's Newtown Festival. The videos gave me a feeling of what it means to be David that a picture or biography can't provide.

You can stream or download selected tracks from David Sutton's Muzic.net.nz profile page, or check out their corresponding videos on his Youtube.

EP Review: Feildings Best Dancers
12 Dec 2018 // by Peter-James Dries
In the words of your mum, Feildings Best Dancers is short, hard, and over far too soon. But she also said Thistle Highland Dancers were the best dancers in Feilding, so what does she know.

Otium - EP Review: You
03 Oct 2018 // by Peter-James Dries
I’m usually reluctant to go too deep into music that on the surface seems shallow, or popular. Reading that this was reggae/funk hybrid band that sung on love initially made me shrivel.

The last bastions of real music in a world that celebrates mediocrity are the minnows swimming against the current of the mainstream.   What is the mainstream nowadays?

Tess Goodwin - Single Review: Grace
07 Jul 2018 // by Peter-James Dries
In this world of instant gratification, something can be said about a song that can make you feel, even if that feeling is longing. Longing, usually a feeling with negative connotations, is something you miss out on when you can binge watch an entire show or listen to a musician’s whole discography.
