Phase Five Changes


Last year we commissioned consultant Chris Caddick to do an independent review of our Phase Five International New Zealand music promotion programme. Part of his brief was to consult widely within the music industry. In the course of the review he interviewed 50+ industry players - major and indie labels, artists, music lawyers, touring agents, publishers and agencies.

The review will result in some refocussing and re-prioritising of our work. To start with, the 'Phase Five' generic New Zealand music promotion will disappear. We will tighten our focus on airplay outcomes overseas, and we will prioritise Australia in collaboration with local labels and their Australian partners, while maintaining our US college radio campaign.

There are a bunch of downstream changes, some of which will impact immediately, like dropping the Phase Five brand and cutting back on our sampler programme. Other changes will be phased in over the new financial year beginning 01 July 2010, like withdrawing from MIDEM and SXSW and leaving those promotions to our NZ Music Commission friends.

Topping 21%


The New Zealand music year is off to a great start. Last week, local content on commercial radio was 21.06% and the 2010 calendar year-to-date figure now stands at 21.18%, thanks primarily to Stan Walker, Gin Wigmore and Dane Rumble. NZ On Air might not be able to claim a share of Stan, but Gin and Dane have both come through NZ On Air's new artist discovery programme and both have gone on to secure NZ On Air album funding. Gin Wigmore's three-times Platinum album has delivered three huge radio hits to date and Dane Rumble's album, to be released at the end of the month, has also delivered three. Expect more from these two radio hit-making machines!

The Hits of 2009


New Zealand music content on commercial radio for the December quarter came in at 19.39% (up from 17.76% in the September quarter) and the year-end result for the 2009 calendar year was 19.86%, just under the 20% target. Over 3,500 New Zealand songs registered some airplay in 2009 but the ten most-played NZ songs on NZ radio in 2009 were:

01           All On Our Own - Midnight Youth
02           The Letter - Midnight Youth
03           Always Be Here - Dane Rumble
04           Brother - Smashproof featuring Gin Wigmore
05           Oh My - Gin Wigmore
06           Always On My Mind - Tiki Taane
07           Hey Boys & Girls - Evermore
08           My Delirium - Ladyhawke
09           Don't Know What To Do - Dane Rumble
10           My House - Kids of 88

Eight of the ten are from NZ On Air-funded albums. The other two - Evermore and Ladyhawke - were funded out of Australia.

Music Video Magic


Flying Nun is synonymous with Kiwi indie music, and with autonomous DIY, bottom-of-the-world creativity. Selected by label founder Roger Shepherd: "A general style may have loosely evolved ... but it was simply due to limited budgets and correspondingly unlimited imaginations." It's a great selection including commentary from industry luminaries, links to documentaries and of course the fabulous videos themselves. Heavenly pop hits indeed. Take a look for yourself.
