Emily Fairlight
Mother of Gloom

Mother Of Gloom is the debut album Emily Fairlight. She follows a line of recent New Zealand singer/songwriters - Aldous Harding, Nadia Reid and Marlon Williams in making music that have their foundations in classic songwriting, but bring an original voice to the table. Emily Fairlight makes music that she describes as doom folk has been compared to PJ Harvey, Will Oldham, Cat Power, Calexico and Bridget St. John.

Bad Sav
Bad Sav

Featuring half the line-up of Death and the Maiden, and borrowing a drummer from Shifting Sands, Bad Sav is a noisy, shoegazy affair. The New Zealand trio has opened up a can of Whirr, added a pinch of Pity Sex, and sauced up a sweet self-titled debut of noise. LIYL Swervedriver, Kindling, or gherkins.

Élan Vital
Shadow Self

Elan Vital operate out of Dunedin, New Zealand, that hotbed of exciting creativity. The trio pull off a fine thing in taking the rich organ sounds of vintage days and applying their textures to the structures of synth-pop. Yum yum! Shadow Self is moody and danceable dream-pop to lose your head in, and it is released by Fishrider Records and Occultation Recordings.

The Shifting Sands
Cosmic Radio Station

Sold out - sorry!

Death And The Maiden
Death And The Maiden

Supported by an earnest bass meandering through synthesized landscapes, Lucinda King’s vocals are perhaps the most human aspect of Death and the Maiden’s self-titled debut. The melancholy guitars and hot-on-your-tail drums contrast splendidly with her emotional singing, making the album an intense experience. 

Trick Mammoth
