The Show: The people I have met are not as pretty as they seem…

No, the blog title doesn’t refer to that handsome and clever linguist Lawrence Arabia chap above, but instead is a line from Ella Chau Yin Chi aka French_concession’s new single End of Time (and more about that down below).

Not too long ago Mr Arabia got into a bit of bother when, as a former resident who visits Christchurch occasionally post-earthquakes, he commented on the blandness of the new city centre. We however think he would be a good town crier for Ōtautahi.

James Dann sums up the silly response nicely in his Same As It Ever Was post here.

Anyway, playing Lawrence Arabia’s 2012 track “The 03” seemed like the perfect way to kick off the show today.

I’m going back to the 03
To see the places where I used to be
Getting punched on High Street mall
Getting drunk at the college ball

 

As promised, coming back to French_concession, here’s the video for the new single End of Time

And on with the show…

The Show: It all means the same, down the line

Winter hibernation doesn’t seem to have dented or affected musical productivity in Ōtautahi Christchurch. In these darkest and coldest of months the releases keep coming.

Looking forward to the new KOOL AID (the artists formerly known as Brian Tamaki and The Kool Aid Kids) Family Portrait EP. Lovely video too for ‘Family Portrait Revisited’, ironically a good summer day out in this Antipodean Gothic paradise.

And not forgetting these Christchurch cats, to name just a few who appear on the show today…

CARAMEL SMOOTH HEAVEN & JESS ASPINWALL

The Show: And you won’t get hurt if you just keep your hands up, And stand tall like sycamores

Out at Bottle Lake amongst the Pinus radiata, the Cordyline Australis, the Dodonaea viscosa, and the Malva, but not the Platanus occidentalis.

Whereby Fraserhead ponders the meaning of the universe after spending the last few weeks working in a pine plantation and listening continuously to the reckonings of Bill Callahan and drones of Dylan Carlson on high rotate. Healthy? Sure. What could possibly go wrong in the clear, brisk, cool country air?

The Show: Christchurch – Ōtautahi 2017… the year in review

Today it’s a review of the year in music from Christchurch – Ōtautahi featuring some of our favourite releases throughout 2017.

We couldn’t quite fit them all in, some may not strictly have been made in “Christchurch”, and there are some tracks that were produced earlier than 2017 but only saw the light of this day this year, but we’re sure you get the gist.

And because we like to get a bit OCD on it – and also to avoid ranking art – the setlist features the artists in chronological order of track release…
