Fat Freddy’s Drop Wairunga bush-alchemy album is a boil-up of cosmic vibes, Afro-Acid beats, hot buttered soul, righteous reggae, subterranean bass and twisted up melodies recorded outdoors sans audience at the mercy of the elements.

Five new tracks emerged, Coffee Black, Shady, Bush Telegraph, Leave Your Window Open and Dig Deep and the band reworked two classics Bones and Wairunga.

It’s a fitting tribute to Wairunga a magical location deep in Ngāti Kahungunu country, a friends home that the band has roamed for over two decades and the inspiration for the original Wairunga Blues track on the BAYS album.


Due to the COVID-19 postponement of the bands November tour, Freddy's found time to inch their way back to BAYS studio to jam and listen to the vinyl test pressing for Wairunga bush-alchemy album. Pressed by Holiday Records in Auckland, the vinyl is on track for 18 November release.

A concert film of the recording has been released online, offering a close-up perspective of the band at work. WATCH the concert film here.
