ASHY - Single Review: Jersey

01 Jul 2018 // A review by Darryl Baser

Ashy (Aswini Batchelor) is an exceptional song writer who is currently recording new material in Auckland. Her single Jersey was released at the start of June, and immediately gained traction on mainstream radio.

Elements of EDM, and pure synth pop, touches or RnB in the modern sense. This song has an excellent structure, familiar but different enough to be interesting. The song was written by Aswini when she was aged 18 in 2017 and recorded at Parachute Studios with producer Scott Seabright.

At 3.06 long, it is very commercial radio friendly, super catchy, and on fourth of fifth listen makes me want to play it again.

Jersey hit over 10,000 streams on Spotify within its first week, which is clearly unsurprising. It is also listed on NZ’s Official Music Chart as one of NZ's Fastest Rising Singles. Apple Music also picked it up as a part of their Best of the Week and The A-List for Pop playlists, which further proves its potential popularity.

Jersey is well composed pop music at its finest, and it has cemented Ashy's place within the pop music industry.

Michael Signal - Single Review: Who U R
12 Mar 2020 // by Darryl Baser
For a starter, I’ve got to say 80's and 90's inspired hair metal really isn’t my thing, however, just with any other genre, when it’s done incredibly well, it is always going to be good. Michael Signal is an extremely talented composer and player, and on his latest single Who U R his abilities shine like polished diamonds on fine bone china.

LA Thompson - Album Review: New Sun Rising
10 Feb 2020 // by Darryl Baser
The two opening tracks of LA Thompson's 2017 LP New Sun Rising, titled Changed My Life and You Said have a particular Country feel, being driven by guitars and her voice. Song three Divided has a dance music feel and is really quite ‘boppy’ for want of a word that doesn’t make me sound like I’m 90 years old.

Malchicks - Single review: Head to Head
16 Dec 2019 // by Darryl Baser
Auckland band Malchicks were ahead of their time in the early 1990's, riding the wave of sonic charged guitar driven rock and roll genre which would eventually be called ‘shoegaze’. Now around 30 years later, a collection of all of their recorded works called Everything is set to be released.

Iveta & Simone - Single Review: Weeping
07 Dec 2019 // by Darryl Baser
Dueling divas Iveta & Simone have dropped the single Weeping, and it’s a power ballad with production values and a sense of drama which could make Jim Steinman or a drag queen blush. If production values were shoes, this tune would be an 8“ sparkly pink platform stiletto.

Urlwyn and Friends - Album Review: Seascape
06 Dec 2019 // by Darryl Baser
It’s always a joy to hear players with more chops than a butchery. This album features some of the finest musicianship I’ve heard in years, and is like the fillet steak of chops, at the risk of mixing my meaty metaphors.
