…but Fraserhead prefers to think of it as giving the music some room and letting it breathe. WTF? That’s right, The Herb Whisperer is away today so Fraserhead is flying solo. Expect sparse voice breaks, minimal mixing, lots of triple plays, and maybe some Kenny Loggins.
Huge thanks to regular listener Greg Dodds for tipping us off about TRAAMS. Could happily leave this on repeat for the w-h-o-l-e show. But won’t. Have a listen below though…
Roots Manuva at The Bedford, Moorhouse Avenue, last night.
Pssst… The Herb Whisperer recommends buying the February 2012 issue of Mojo. The covermount CD is New Order’s 1983 masterpiece “Power, Corruption & Lies” covered, Blue Monday revisited, and bonus tracks. Could have been a recipe for a disaster but you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Have a sneak preview of the tracks here.
It really could end in tears, or more likely, Phil Collins. That’s right, Fraserhead has the studio to himself today while The Herb Whisperer does some advance scouting for the Laneway Festival in Auckland (so that we can better stalk M83).
Mulchzoid aka David Mulcahy Esquire was listening to the show last Saturday afternoon and upon hearing us play Ed Muzik’s “EQC Are Looking At My House” felt compelled to indulge in some one-upmanship by letting us know about his track “Gravy Train” from his brand new (free download) album “Neck”.
Turns out that Mulchzoid very kindly sent us a copy of his album a while back but The Herb Whisperer has got the EQC painters in and the album is AWOL somewhere in his house.
Best of all, “Darkness Sublime”, first single off the album, might just be my favourite song of 2011 so far. Sneakily it has two videos, one for the US MTV market and one for the Al Jazeera Middle East market. Both videos are below and I’ll let you figure out which video is designed for which market.
