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.

Brendan Pyper - Single Review: Falling For You
14 Dec 2018 // by Darryl Baser
The new track from Brendan Pyper, Falling For You is heavily auto-tuned into the chorus intro. This then fades into the first verse about the 20 second mark, then the chorus hits at 50 seconds, back to verse two at 1:17.

Bartells - Single/Video Review: Extraordinary Girl
06 Dec 2018 // by Darryl Baser
There’s something pretty cool about the whole DIY ethic, from the early Flying Nun years, and now with many artists producing their own material. Sam Bartells, who creates music under his last name, has just released the single Extraordinary Girl with an accompanying self-filmed video.

Gig Review: Tom Cunliffe & Emily Fairlight @ The Cook, Dunedin - 10/11/2018
23 Nov 2018 // by Darryl Baser
The Cook is home to a few music fans, with a few still standing or swaying from the city's craft beer festival, which had people imbibing from mid-morning. Tom Cunliffe opens up the evening's performance with the fantastic song Came My Way.

Superette - Single Review: Pretty Picture
16 Nov 2018 // by Darryl Baser
It’s been a long time between drinks for fans of Superette and Dave Mulcahy’s exceptional songwriting. However, a thirst quencher is being poured in the form of the release of the song Pretty Picture.

Jaggers x Lines - Album Review: Burn Cycle
05 Oct 2018 // by Darryl Baser
Dunedin EDM (Electric Dance Music) duo Jaggers X Lines have been putting in the mahi (work) over a few years; headlining their own shows and playing support slots to some credible touring acts including looping wunderkind Tash Sultana. The pairing of Eliana Gray and Morgan Smilie describe themselves as ‘alt-pop weirdos’, and it’s a fitting description.

Hallelujah Picassos - Single Review: Voices of One
27 Sep 2018 // by Darryl Baser
The new single from Auckland indie cult band Hallelujah Picassos, Voices of One, seemed to come from out of the blue. The flip side is a Picassos' tune that anyone who listened to the student radio network in the mid to late 1990's will know that Black Spade Picasso Core was a favourite for many - possibly due to the profanity in the chorus…or maybe that was just me.
