X-Ray Charles video “Supersoaker”

“Supersoaker” is the perfect pop single from Christchurch’s X-Ray Charles recent”Selph Titled” EP. Nice video too. No bullshit. Just hardcore siftiness.

If you’re feeling flush go and buy their new release “Selph Titled”.

Twin Shadow “Five Seconds”

One of my favourite moments at the 2012 Laneway Festival in Auckland was seeing Twin Shadow on stage. I’m not usually starstruck but I was captivated by the charismatic George Lewis Jr. The whole band was tight but Mr Lewis was positively dreamy, a modern crooner who seemed to slow down time. My bromance moment I guess.

The new Twin Shadow album “Confess” is out early July on 4AD and sounds like, if the new single “Five Seconds” is anything to go by, a moody affair.

Here’s the video for “Five Seconds” – quite hypnotic and one that looks like it could have been directed by David Lynch. And because “Five Seconds” was a real earworm and reminded me of some guilty pleasures from the 1980s I’ve included those videos below too…

RIP Donna Summer (1948 – 2012)

No one did sultry like Donna Summer did. And teaming up with Giorgio Moroder was a stroke of genius. A real musical match made in heaven. “I Feel Love” is one of the all time classics.

If you ever wondered what we do when the microphones are switched off and the music is playing, this video for “Love To Love You Baby” from 1975 will give you an idea of our super smooth moves.

The sights and sounds of Saturations

Just in case we didn’t make ourselves clear on Saturday’s show (and listening to the playback we probably didn’t) the new Saturations album Runaway is now available to purchase over at Bandcamp for NZ$1 per track or $9.90 for all 10. Have a listen below:

Blair Parkes, Mr Saturations himself, has put together videos for three songs, one from the new album and two from last years self-titled EP. They have a permanent home over at NZIndieScene’s YouTube channel but no need to click and search – we’ve posted them below for your ease and comfort.
