King Cass - Single/Video Review: Yea Yea

27 Feb 2023 // A review by Peter K Malthus

The newest track from King CassYea Yea, immediately grabbed me, and kept me. Starting out with a simple instrumental hook, leading into the smooth vocal line of the chorus, and on into King Cass delivering his message. All of this playing out over the visuals of King Cass and his mates hanging out in the garage, having a few cold ones, and just chilling. Nice.

One thing I absolutely love hearing is New Zealand artists not being afraid of being undeniably Kiwi in their vocals, and King Cass raps in a strong Kiwi accent, whilst almost reverentially draping himself in the New Zealand flag. There's no mistaking where King Cass is from.

The overall feel of the track is mellow and chilled whilst remaining upbeat and positive. Indeed, the message that King Cass is sharing is one of overcoming adversity, facing up to challenges, and being the best version of himself he can be. Also nice.

King Cass has ear-wormed his way into my brain forever with this track, it's as full of hooks as a ten metre roll of Velcro. Everyone I've played it to; I find singing the chorus at some later point. A nicely produced track with a well-matched video. All hail to the King.

Spirit Boy - Single Review: Neon Sky
24 Mar 2023 // by Peter K Malthus
I dragged my feet over this review, seriously let it get overdue, even. I haven't long been doing the reviewing thing here, so I wanted to be really sure about what I wanted to say, with this particular one.
Grant Duncan - Single/Video Review: Initiate
23 Mar 2023 // by Peter K Malthus
Grant Duncan already has an impressive back catalogue of releases on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, YouTube, and Spotify. The Auckland-based singer/songwriter has also spent time fronting the Tokyo-based indie combo Pavement Candy, and the influence of his travels is worn proudly heart-on-sleeve in Initiate.
Vox Capacitor - Single Review: Rectangle
18 Mar 2023 // by Peter K Malthus
Vox Capacitor is a solo project of "Jangly Dad Rock and Indie Guitar Pop" based in Auckland, from an artist who is clearly a quite competent multi-instrumentalist. From drums tracked "in a borrowed gym", to a suitably solid bass line, to layers of guitars topped with well-delivered vocals, Vox Capacitor certainly multi tasks with aplomb.
Gig Review: Beachware @ Space Academy, Christchurch - 11/02/2023
12 Feb 2023 // by Peter K Malthus
Last night's Beachware show was my first visit to Space Academy, a smallish venue with a great atmosphere and mouth-watering food. An excellent setting for the two bands I had the pleasure of watching.
Michael Signal - EP Review: Solway
10 Feb 2023 // by Peter K Malthus
I'm really surprised that I hadn't heard of Michael Signal before reviewing this EP. This is far from being Michael's first release, and listening to it (repeatedly and joyfully, I might add) had me delving into his back catalogue, including a rip-snorting cover of Scorpions' Rock You Like A Hurricane.
