New vinyl to borrow

Check out some of these newly catalogued vinyl in our AV collection. They include wonderful new albums by our very own Eb & Sparrow, and Jack White. Our vinyl collection is growing by adding both new and essential recordings. Come in and check them out.

Eb & Sparrow – Seeing things
Seeing Things is written by front-woman Ebony Lamb and arranged by Eb & Sparrow, recorded in the historic homestead Ahiaruhe, in the heart of the Wairarapa January 2017, with Tui award winning producer and sound engineer Brett Stanton (NZ/ Melbourne) who co-produced with the band. Utilising vintage recording equipment and instruments in the large wooden building to take advantage of the lush textures and presence, the band has pulled out all the stops.” (adapted from amazon.co.uk)

Jack White – Boarding house reach
Boarding House Reach is the 2018 solo album from Jack White, and is a testament to the breadth of the artist’s creative power and his bold artistic ambition. This material finds Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern.” (adapted from realgroovy.co.nz)

Jimi Hendrix – Both sides of the sky
Both Sides Of The Sky presents 13 studio recordings including 10 which have never before been released. All but two of these studio recordings were made during a fertile period between January 1968 and 1970. Jimi’s mastery and use of the studio as a proving ground for new songs resulted in a growing collection of extraordinary material.” (adapted from amazon.co.uk)

Cocteau Twins – Treasure
Treasure is the third studio album by Scottish rock band Cocteau Twins. It was originally released on 1 November 1984 by 4AD. With this album, the band settled on what would, from then on, be their primary lineup: vocalist Elizabeth Fraser, guitarist Robin Guthrie and bass guitarist Simon Raymonde. This new lineup also coincided with the development of the ethereal sound associated with the band’s music.” (adapted from realgroovy.co.nz)

Trinity Roots – True
True is the debut album from Trinity Roots, originally released in 2001. Recording began in Oruawharu, an old colonial house in Takapau. Oruawharu personifies the history that Trinity Roots embody in their sound: from the acoustic flavours of Maori party songs sung around a fire to the roots of black music’s soul, jazz and blues.” (adapted from realgroovy.co.nz)
