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: 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…

NECRUM SELECT

CARAMEL SMOOTH HEAVEN & JESS ASPINWALL
