The Show: Don’t go overboard…

Don’t go overboard says Blair Parkes. But today we did, with a sneaky threesome from his new album “over bored”. We can never say no to perfect pop music.

And on with the show…

The Show: Macrodata Refinement

Starting the show off at a blistering pace with a track from the new Blair Parkes album “over board”, available right now on bandcamp.

You can still listen to the recent Karyn Hay interview with Blair over at the RNZ website, wherein he talks about his favourite local tunes and the seemingly arbitrary, fluid nature of the names of Christchurch suburbs, long a bugbear at The Joint mansions.

Say, say, say, say summat to me

On an unrelated note, we can’t help imagining that Caroline Polachek is attempting a broad Yorkshire accent during at least part of her latest song.

And on with the show…

The Show: ASMR.

ASMR. It’s not just about whispering, scrunching leaves and brushing hair. With a little bit of ingenuity you can incorporate it into hip hop. Or even comedy.

The Show: Remember I was your hippo, I’d wear your heart like a Zippo

First up, let us acknowledge that the misheard lyric meme is tired, dated and had burnt itself out way before memes even existed.

Having said that, we did have cause to stop and stare in wonder at our speakers the other week when we listened to the opening verse of The Weeknd’s “Less Than Zero”. The accompanying  lyric video confirmed that we had misunderstood the words and that the couplet in question wasn’t actually hippo & Zippo but hero & symbol.

Far be it from us to advise Mr. Tesfaye on song writing, but we just can’t help but feel that our take is slightly better.  After all, it does actually rhyme. Plus, no matter what anybody tells us, we still hear a song about semiaquatic mammals and lighters.

And on with the show…
