Dirty Pixels - EP Review: Spacesuit

26 Jun 2017 // A review by Tony McDonald
Have you ever imagined MGMT mixed with some Beach boys, then meeting Weezer to beef things up a little?

Well here you have it and it is frickin awesome. I am always looking for new bands and this ticks all the boxes.

The whole Spacesuit EP is upbeat with a happy, almost dreamy summer feel with great tunes. Indie rock perhaps would be a suitable genre if you need a pigeonhole.

The song Spacesuit is my favourite track on this short 4 track EP, however Rhetorical Baby is a close second.

Throwing another band reference at you is The Pixies who could easily have written and performed track 3 You Took My Mind. It’s a little more spacey though rather than the dirty raw sound of the Pixies.

Funky bass lines and rums throughout are a key feature as are the jangly guitars with an overtone of 80’s synth thrown in for good measure. The floaty vocals fit beautifully. Nice work guys.

Please check them out on Facebook.

Without any warning or announcement, a huge boom blasts through Moon. It's 9:15pm on Thursday night, pizzas and beers are flowing and the atmosphere has just kicked in!

Gig Review: Darryl Baser @ Moon, Wellington - 18/08/2018

Unfortunately, Moon wasn't rocking this Saturday night in Newtown. The crowds may have been watching the All Blacks in a nearby bar.

Radio Coma - Single Review: Too Young To Die
06 Nov 2017 // by Tony McDonald
Head banging on the front row, covered in beer, sweat and waves of pushing & shoving. Too Young To Die instantly transports you to a live venue.

The Whiskey Show - Single Review: Vengeance
12 Oct 2017 // by Tony McDonald
This is a classic old school rock song with a modern 'Black Keys' style drum and bass feel thrown in. Dene's vocals are great for this genre, and Scott's guitaring is stunningly good.

Openside - Single Review: I Feel Nothing
28 Aug 2017 // by Tony McDonald
Thumping bass and drums overlaid with great effects and keyboards make this 80’s retro PowerPop single really stand out. I Feel Nothing is a very catchy tune and it's certain to be a hit especially in the lead up to summer.

I must say it as absolutely fantastic to hear a fabulous female rock artist. There aren't enough talented rock ladies in my opinion.
