NZMM: Artists on Wellington Music – Daniel Boobyer

Last edited: 11.05.15 | Comment? | By

We’ve been checking in with some local artists, writers & critics to get their thoughts on what makes the Wellington Music scene unique, and to get their take on some of their favourite Wellington sounds. You can check out some older posts from critics Nick Bollinger, & Grant Smithies, Blue Smoke writer Chris Bourke, and musicians Samuel Flynn Scott & Alistair Fraser, but since it is New Zealand Music Month we thought we would check in with some more people over the course of May.

Whether offering an opinion on the uniqueness or elusive qualities that make up Wellington music, or just some of their favourite albums, the most important thing is the music itself, and we hope these posts lead you back to some favourite albums, or help you to discover something new.

Up today is Daniel Boobyer

I think what makes Wellington Music unique is the number of Bigger Carnival/percussion bands that there are on offer. It is also quite easy to make connections here as it is a concentrated city that has a productive air about it. There are so many bands around.
Top albums:

Fuyuko’s Fables – Everybody is Weird (EP)
An excellent release in 2012. Their sound has a sort of organic quality, and it’s harmonious and sweet.
Groeni – Groeni (EP)
2012 5-track EP. Spectacular and ambitiously subtle Electronica.
Time Killed The Clock – Dan Boobyer
My first pressed record was released in 2012. It is an idiosyncratic blend of Blues Folk and hypnotic loops.

You can check out Dan’s 2010 album here and buy his more recent material on Bandcamp here.
