“Hey pretty baby it’s been a while, haven’t seen your lovely face for a long time”
Yes, it’s been a long time Maria Minerva and it’s good to have you back. The new album Soft Power is out 18 September on 100% Silk, and until then we’ve got “Wake Up In NYC” on repeat…
Not to play favourites or anything but our 8K compatriot Dik Detonic (aka New Ways 2 Noise) is celebrating his solitary confinement in Melbourne by getting S:Bahn back together. “Sync or Swim” is out now and the album “Queen Of Diamonds” is due for release very soon on Polaks Records. “Another month of fucking Sundays” indeed.
Her last appearance on The Joint was back in 2009 and today is the return of Lady Tulip. She’s not too pleased either after missing out on tickets to Beyoncé’s three Auckland gigs in October which means she will be playing the darkest, scariest R&B that she can find. Hold tight.
Thank you Claps and Guilt Ridden Pop – no idea how you came across us but we’re glad you did and we hope you don’t mind our loosely calling you an updated Minimal Wave band.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Minimal Wave, still no news on when or if any material from our favourite band of that period, Lufthansa Terminal, will be released but lots of information on the record label itself over at Dangerous Minds.
And that’s not the only correspondence we got this week.
Adam Macaulay of the Brighton, England duo Curxes emailed us about the painstakingly hand-crafted video that Roberta Fidora made for their new single “Haunted Gold”. Love the stonking beat and belting vocals. Modern cabaret disco at its very best! See the video below…
