Miss Peach and The Travellin Bones - Album Review: Sand

04 Mar 2017 // A review by Photographer

Miss Peach and the Travellin’ Bones have released an album called Sand

This album is beyond stunning.

Encompassing the essence of pure enchantment, Sand guides you in developing a strong attachment and sense of familiarity with the tunes it is comprised of.  Pairing beautiful production with delicious compositions, Sand is truly an album of note.

This album boasts delightful presentation, with great attention to the aesthetic and the information. Great use of imagery and quality photography assist in creating a tangible art piece; buy this album as a physical copy.

The tracks on the album, and there are a decadent 12 of them, are wonderfully varied within the theme, meaning that there is variety to remove the risk of boredom, however the consistency is strong. 

The overall feel and atmosphere of Sand will take you back in time to an endearing whimsical history that was just a skitten too fantastic to exist in reality.  An eclectic and interesting selection of instruments (including violin and double bass) definitely helps to paint this picture.  The divine Miss Peach holds a sultry and multi-faceted voice, creating soundscapes and setting tones.  

It’s difficult to choose standouts tracks as they each slam you with their own character.  Sea of Hope is beyond catchy, enticing you in with a hook that is very authentic to the nature of the album.  Mr Walker will see you close your eyes and imagine walking out of a New Orleans club years ago, into a rainy alleyway, complete with scattering cats. 

If you like the carnival, if you like the gypsy fair, if you like the rebellious 20s, if you like elegance and stroppiness….  You will enjoy Sand.

Apollo SteamTrain - Single Review: The Electric Sun/Streets of Gold
05 Nov 2016 // by Photographer
A release by New Zealand based Apollo SteamTrain, the 'Double A Side' single The Electric Sun/Streets Of Gold is a neat way to feature the strengths of the band. Well recorded, these two songs are pleasantly composed with much thought put in to the tones and soundscape used.
Mishap - EP Review: Toaster
05 Nov 2016 // by Photographer
Enthusiastically honest lyrics and a homely, familiar flavour are the initial hits when yourToaster EP pops. Mishap hauls in the spirits of Green Day (Dookie Days) and I’m going to say a smearing of Smash-era Offspring to bring you their musical offering.
EP Review: Bonfire Baby
05 Nov 2016 // by Photographer
Running out to the car, late as usual, I checked the letterbox on the way through, finding this wee gem in there. I was off on a road trip with no-one, giving me plenty of time to conceive the following words that will explain my experience with Bonfire Baby.

Gig Review: Head Like A Hole @ Galatos, Auckland - 6/08/2015
19 Aug 2015 // by Photographer
The last time I saw Head Like A Hole I was a teenager and I was in no state to form any kind of opinion on what I had just seen, other than knowing that once again I had loved it. Fast forward 20 or so years and I was completely amped to be making my way to Galatos in Auckland to see and photograph Head Like a Hole playing with 8 Foot Sativa.
Ahjay Stelino - Album Review: Music Therapy Songs for Special Kids
09 Jun 2015 // by Photographer
It’s not often my two jobs overlap, by night I am a music photographer and reviewer and by day I am an early intervention teacher, supporting preschool children with disabilities in their early education.  So I was quite excited to be asked to review Ahjay Stelino’s Music Therapy Songs for Special Kids.
