    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Nick Granville, who released a new album, ‘ReAMPED’, last month under the name Granville Shepherd Elise, which was recorded in Los Angeles with two other NZ musician’s.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The new album, ReAMPED, was recorded in Los Angeles, California at Kronos recording studios, September 2017.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    The album was produced by me, Nick Granville, and the engineer was Gary Novak. Gary is one of LA’s top drummers having worked extensively with Chick Corea, Alanis Morisette, George Benson and countless others. We composed the tunes the day before hitting the studio. The music was a collaboration between Benjamin J. Shepherd, Dylan Elise and Nick Granville.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    I provided a few ideas prior to the rehearsal/writing session, which were nothing more than a few notes, chords or grooves, but most ideas we came up with on the spot in a rehearsal room the day prior to hitting the studio. While this might sound unusual, for us it is just how we work. We are improvisors at heart, as we all play mostly jazz, so to compose is essentially just writing down what we might have improvise otherwise.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    Yes, and no. We are trying to be honest to ourselves musically so when you do that you get a sound that is your own to an extent. Everyone thinks they have their own sound so I guess we will let others decide if we actually do. We draw on our influences and this is apparent in the music I think.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    Recording is Los Angeles was amazing in that sense. The gear available was on a different level to anything in New Zealand or almost anywhere else for that matter. For example Dylan had a catalogue of hundreds of snare drums to choose from for the recording sessions.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    I think ‘Pablito’s chicken’ and ‘Gotchu Bro’ sum up the album. They are groove tunes, with interesting elements and the titles sum up the vibe.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    At this stage there is only digital copies available on Bandcamp, CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon but physical CD’s will be available from early 2018.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    There is 3 video’s on YouTube of the recording process. A 10 minute video documentary type look at the recording, a 3 minute summary and a 1 minute quick look. There is also lots of videos of the process on my Instagram page.

    New Album: Richter City Rebels

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Dan from Richter City Rebels, who are just about to release their new album ‘Hard Work Hard Money’.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    Mostly at The Surgery in Newtown, Wellington but we did a couple special vocal overdubs elsewhere, and one of the singles, Never Know, was recorded at the RNZAF band rooms.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    We were very lucky to have legendary engineer Mike Gibson (Munki Studios) with us for the tracking, mixing and mastering. The tunes were composed long before the session but we did make some of the decisions in the studio, and Mike had some great technical and creative input along the way.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    We write the tunes as individuals and adjust them once we’ve played them. The songs really take shape on stage, but we have a few special traditions such as playing a brand new tune for the first time at soundcheck, or writing tunes or lyrics on specific stretches of road across the country.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    We want to bring the party atmosphere of the second line in New Orleans to our audience here, and also to have some of our friends as guests.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    Very expensive microphones, and sacred ancient Jamaican medicines made from fermented sugar… heh

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    B.M.C. (the second single written by our trumpet player Ben Hunt) was written after some of our members spent time partying with TBC Brass Band at the Balcony Music Club in New Orleans in 2016. It’s got all the key ingredients – Huge minor-y bass line, screaming trumpet, hot spicy Latin flavour, a very very special solo by “Lil'” Glenn Hall from the legendary godfathers of modern second line Rebirth Brass Band, and a deadly vocal feature from local crew Raw Collective and Jinz Moss. It’s unstoppable and it’s gonna be absolutely fearsome when we play it live (with Raw Collective in effect) at the release show on December 1.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    CDs will go on sale at the release show, and it’s available on all digital platforms including Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp from December 1st.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    There are plans! Watch this space!

    New Album: Needless Cane

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Needless Cane who have just released debut full length album ‘Sick World’…

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The album was recorded over a period of 6 to 7 months from November 2016 till June 2017. As for where it was recorded, I recorded the vocal tracks separately in my home studio (here in NZ) while the music and production was recorded over in the States by my friend and fellow artist Jeremy Garner.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    Jeremy Garner was the man responsible for producing and engineering the record. As for tracks coming together, we would send each other ideas and demos through messenger and email.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    Jeremy would send me a demo through email and I would jam along to the sound and get an idea of how to perform it, often putting words together and finding a rhythm then later adding lyrics. I would record a few takes and send the isolated vocals alongside a rough mix of the song back to him. He would then mix, tweak it further and send me a version of that song to get my opinion on it. It was a very easy process of creating music and very different to what I was used to in the past.
    There are many themes included in this record, themes of how the world is and how it is perceived as a social media saturated culture. I’m an observer and I usually channel what I see in the world and how I view people. I love films and get inspired by them so I would create a song based on it as well as psychological themes, Metaphors, the occult and witchcraft. I feel that some of the songs have a strong essence of magic in them.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    Absolutely, I wanted to challenge myself creatively and had the urge to experiment with a new sound that differs from the previous works that I had created with the band in the past. I felt like this collaboration with Jeremy would help conceive something very different and so far it has. I am pleased with how the record turned out.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    Black Magic

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    It’s tricky to single out just one track as I feel as a whole entity the album itself works very well; each track compliments each other and tells the story of what is needed to be told.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    There will be physical CD’s in time but they won’t be available till early 2018, but they will complete the story of the record by showcasing a more in-depth visual representation of the album through its 8 page booklet with lyrics and Photography shot by the extremely talented Jess Cameron (Visceral Photography). As for now the record is on Spotify, Bandcamp, Google Play and iTunes. Also there are many others but these are the main and important ones.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    Yes there is already a music video out for the track “Kill Your Ego” (On YouTube) which was directed by Olex Cidor (Lenscraft Media) we released that back in July. There are also plans in doing 2 more videos for “Am I Pretty, Yet” and “Goddess of The Black Moon” and a possible 3rd video.

    New Album: Matt Hay

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Matt Hay who has just released second full length album ‘Something Blue’, following on from his 2007 debut album ‘Inside Stories’, and his 2012 EP ‘Where do we go from here?’.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The album was recorded between July and November 2016 at the Surgery, with a bit recorded at home.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    I produced the album with a bit help from Andrew Downes, who engineered and mixed it. With the exception of one track, ‘Love that I had’ which turned up late in the piece, the tracks were all tunes that I had been playing live with my band, The Makers, for the last few years. One of the tracks, ‘Too much to ask’ goes back about 20 years.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    I wrote all the songs, and they all came to life at different times and in different ways. I’m not a very disciplined songwriter. I don’t sit down with the intention of writing a song and work on it until one comes. For me they either come or they don’t. Sometimes they come fully formed, and other times they need work. The album doesn’t really have a theme – just a bunch of songs about life’s little ups and downs.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    I wasn’t consciously going for a different sound, but the album has a bit more of a blues feel to it than my previous releases. In terms of approach, one thing I wanted to achieve with this album was to add some more colours/textures to the songs, make them sound a bit different from what they do live.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    Yes, I played a bit of lap steel, dobro and electric guitar on some of the tracks.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    Not really, but the lead track, Last Jubilee, is probably the one that would be the single, if we were to release one.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    CDs are available at Slow Boat Records, via Bandcamp and at gigs. Downloads can be purchased from Bandcamp and iTunes, and it can be streamed via Spotify.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    No plans for a video at this stage.

    New Album: Hobnail

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Rob from Hobnail who have just released their 7th album, ‘Blue Sky Songs’, in a career that now spans 23 years.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    Basic tracks were recorded at The Surgery in Wellington with Andrew Downes Engineering. Overdubs including Guitars, vocals and some violins and percussion were recorded at Mad Dog Studio which is my home studio. I also mixed the album at home. Mastering was done by Ross McDermott at Audiosuite in Kapiti.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    Caroline Easther (Drummer) and I shared production on the album. Songs were pretty well rehearsed and arranged before we started recording, although some arrangements came together or were altered during recording. Arrangements are a pretty collaborative process in Hobnail. We’ve been working together for a long time and all have ideas on what will best serve the songs.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    I’m the main songwriter in the band, although this time around Jo sings 3 songs which are all covers, and Hamish sings 2, 1 of which is an original and the other written by our friend Jeff Simmonds. I write songs fairly compulsively, but find I need time and space to get any real work done. So I’ve always got tons of half finished ideas flying around, and then when I get some free time to focus will tend to finish off a batch. I think my 5 on this album came from a demo of about 15 that I put forward to the band. Themes? Life, death, love and broken hearts. Although the overall feel of the album is upbeat and optimistic. Blue Skies ahead…

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    Yep. Our previous album (String Things) was a bit of a career retrospective in that we gathered songs from throughout our (then) 21 years together, and had an extensive guest list and some pretty big productions. On this album we decided we wanted to keep it to pretty much the 4 of us, with a more acoustic sound, which is reflective of our live sound.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    Well, I have some really nice acoustic guitars and my home studio setup is geared toward capturing a warm sound, so mostly valve microphones and pre-amps.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    Hard to say, because with 3 different singers across the album the sound does change, and we do touch on various styles across the folk/rock spectrum from song to song. That said, our first single ‘Every Single Day’ is a good place to start.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    Yes – both physical CD’s and links to iTunes and Bandcamp can be had from our Website.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    After 23 years together, we shot our first ever music video for ‘Every Single Day’.

    New Album: Del Thomas

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Del Thomas, who has just released his 3rd album ‘Changes Coming’.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    It was recorded during May-Aug this year at my home studio – Summerfield Sound.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    I engineered and produced it with some input from the other musos and Davy Gollan – a good friend who has very good ears. We recorded the rhythm tracks – drums, bass and rhythm guitar as a band in order to capture a live feel with everyone feeding off each other’s playing. Vocals and other instruments were added as overdubs. The players on the album are Dougal Speir (guitar), Elliotte Fuimaono (bass), Mo Phillips (drums) and additional vocals by Lynley Christoffersen and Jade Eru (The Tempests). I played guitar, harmonica and various keyboard and synth noises as well as lead vocals.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    Some of the songs are quite old, having been written back in the late 90s but have taken on a different feel from the original versions which I played with my first band in NZ (Glass Onion). These songs are Real True Love, Think of Yesterday, Fault Line and Close as You Were. I was going through my songbook and found them and thought it would be interesting to resurrect them with the new band. And I’m glad that I did as I really like how they’ve come out. The other songs are all new, some only having been written within the last couple of months. I like to think of this as being the third volume of a trilogy of albums which started with Driving Home Alone in 2013. There’s a theme of lost love and longing which comes through many of the songs but I’ve always tried not to turn them into dirges or ‘sad bastard’ songs. Instead I prefer to connect what could be seen as sad lyrics with uptempo arrangements. I think I want to make the next album more acoustic just to show a different side to my writing.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    I like to keep the sound fairly similar on all the albums as most of my favourite albums have been recorded in the old school way with everyone in the room playing together. I like the live feel that a band playing together can bring to an album. I don’t think I’d ever try to change that. Fortunately, my studio set up allows this. Having said that, there are a few different sounds on a couple of the tracks. I got a small analogue synth recently so I used that on a couple of tracks and also having the additional vocals from Lynley and Jade really added an extra something to the overall sound. Also, Dougal Speir’s guitar playing style and tone are very different to mine so having him play on several of the tracks introduces a different tone and texture as well.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    I used my old Boss 1600CD recorder all the time. It has 8 inputs so you can track all the rhythm tracks together and the built-in effects are really good. It has a nice old-school analogue sort of sound. And the built-in mastering unit really brings all the tracks together. I’ve got a couple of nice Rode NT1 condenser mics that I use for vocals and acoustic guitar – and they’re also good for using as a room mic on guitar amps. Other than that, the drums and amps were mic’d using trusty SM57’s.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    I really like a couple of the tracks – Where the Sun don’t Shine and Real True Love. Dougal Speir’s guitar and Lynley and Jade’s vocals really make these songs stand out. I also really like the last track – and title track of the album – Changes Coming as it’s completely different to anything else I’ve done before. Once again, the female voices take this to somewhere I couldn’t have achieved on my own.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    Physical copies will be available in a couple of months – the CD release gig will be at the Capital Blues Club at the Hotel Bristol on 5 Oct. The album will be on iTunes and possibly Spotify.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    No plans for a video at this stage but that might change.

    New Album: Opium Eater

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Sam from progressive post-rock band Opium Eater, who recently signed with Australian label Art As Catharsis who will release their full length debut, ‘Ennui’, on the 12th of October.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The bulk of the material was recorded at Blue Barn studio in Wellington over the space of two very long days in September last year, with some finishing touches added later on. Vocals were recorded at Forkhead studios throughout the early months of this year.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    James Goldsmith engineered the album and we ended up deciding to have him mix it as well. This was then sent over to Audiosiege in the USA for mastering. The tracks were written and road-tested through numerous performances in the two years leading up to the recording sessions. This level of familiarity meant that we were able to knock out the bulk of the recording out very quickly.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    The blueprints for each song were mostly written by individual members of the band, which were then brought to the table to be fleshed out as a collective. I wouldn’t say that there are any specific themes going on throughout the record, however a lot of thought was put into making it a cohesive journey from start to finish.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    Being our debut full-length album, I feel a lot of our process in putting this together was about us finding our sound and what we want to achieve musically and sonically as a collective. It’s funny, because we put out the ‘Canis Major’ EP in 2015, in which we were trying to explore our more textural side in a single long-form piece. However, it has felt like that one doesn’t represent us as a whole. With that in mind, it’s really good to have this one finished, because I really feel this one really does showcase all facets of what we do. Regarding the production style, we worked alongside James to attempt to really capture our live energy on through the engineering and mixing processes. This was something that was very important to us and it feels as though it has been very successful.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    The album was recorded live with most of the gear that we would use at our shows. This was crucial in capturing the aforementioned energy and overall feel. We also did a series of overdubs (mostly added guitar layers), which were captured through James’ impressive array of guitar amps. It should be said that we are also fiends for effects pedals, which were used heavily throughout the tracking process.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    This is quite a tough question as I feel that each track has a feel that is distinctive to the others on the record. We chose ‘Babelsteps’ as the lead single as we felt that it captures most facets of our sound in an immediate and somewhat palatable way.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    The album will be officially released on October 12th on a variety of digital platforms (Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify) and will also be released physically on CD. We would have liked to have pressed it to vinyl as well, but unfortunately the album ended up being too long!

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    We have had a bit of interest in this area from a few people who work within that realm, however nothing is as of yet in the works. Watch this space!

    New album: Full Moon Fiasco

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Berlin based Full Moon Fiasco, who have just released their long anticipated 2nd album Summer Eyes’.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The album was recorded in Newtown flat by the zoo, by the beach in Waikane and in a converted office (now rehearsal) space in one of Berlin´s industrial areas.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    I engineered and produced the album, it was mastered by Bevan Smith. There was never a studio as such, just a mobile set up that moved around. Most of the writing happened beforehand and then the initial instrumental parts would be played live or partly live. Afterwards I added synths, percussion, vocals etc. The overdubs were done in various places depending where I was.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    For this album I wrote a lot on a guitar before hand then when I had the basic structure, the melody and the feel I would teach it to the other´s who were going to record it as well. Sometimes just starting with drums, sometimes with bass and organ or synth as well. There was also a couple of improvisations recorded in the makeshift set up live and one piece that uses samples and was built up from there. There is no theme as such. But it does contain reflections of where I was, and what was happening in waking and dreaming life.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    I really wanted it to sound like there is a subtle movement through the whole thing. Like the pitch is changing, just a little all the time over particular frequencies. It was also a more ´live´ album than the last one Cosmic Palms.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    For the live tracks I used a larger tape machine than I had used before, an 8 track reel to reel, as there were more tracks that needed to be recorded simultaneously. It wasn’t running that well though, and there was only one tape, an old Letterbox Lambs session. Once we got to the end, I would bounce down the 25 minutes of recording straight to four tracks on the computer. The reason being that I thought I had an 8 input soundcard coming, but it turned out to be only 4 and I couldn’t get another one in time! That made for some interesting on the spot mixing. Later on I did a lot of processing with different modulation devices and reverbs, layering textures under the finished tracks. Starting with tape machines and moving to digital seems to work the best for Full Moon Fiasco albums.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    Not really one. They fit together quite well I think. Each adding a little piece to the whole. I do have tracks that I prefer to listen to though. Plantation for instance.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    Yes! There is a limited edition run of vinyl and cassette available via Fantasy Fiction Records. But you can also listen on Bandcamp, Spotify, Youtube etc.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    There are two videos, one for Sight Unseen My Pixie Queen and one for Diamond Dancer. Both are already up online. I think there will be one more to come. But for now that´s in the works.

    New Album: Kariiiba

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Wellington producer Clae Baxter aka Kariiiba, whose latest album ‘Hot Shower Muzak’ was released earlier this month.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    The album was made over the last couple of years, at home in my bedroom!

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    I produced HOT SHOWER MUZAK entirely by myself! I have recently been sorting through a whole heap of unreleased music, and these particular 12 tracks came together as single project based upon a shared lush, bouncy, spicy aesthetic that I came to know as HOT SHOWER MUZAK. I have another couple of releases coming up that were created in the same way, sorting through my beats and grouping songs together based on their ‘vibe’.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    Making music is like a game to me, it’s my ideal leisure activity, so the album really just stems from me mucking around and having fun in my DAW in my evenings or on the weekend.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    HOT SHOWER MUZAK to me, is music that sounds like a hot shower feels.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    My Native Instruments Maschine is my baby, I make pretty much all of my music using that beautiful little thing.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    It’d have to be ‘garlic’ for capturing the overall vibe, though swisher and ‘whipper’ are two personal favs of mine.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    No physical copy, but you can get it pretty much anywhere online: Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, iTunes, a bunch of other places.

    Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
    The whole album can be viewed on YouTube, though I wouldn’t call em ‘proper’ videos. Working on some stuff for upcoming releases though so watch this space.

    New Album: Starving Millions

    ‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Starving Millions, whose new album ‘V’ was released late last week.

    When/where was the new album recorded?
    We recorded this album in July/August mostly in our rehearsal room at Toi Poneke. A few parts were added at Dave’s house and all the vocals were done at our friend Jimmys as he has vocal booth set up.

    Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
    We produced the album ourselves, we had complete control over every step of the process and could be quite flexible with how we did things. Throughout recording we shared the tracks on dropbox to give feedback on the mix and sound.
    Peter recorded his guitar parts first so that Sam could write lead lines at home and then bring to recording. Sam created the first half of the intro track on his set up at his house and then set to Dave for Mixing and mastering.

    How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
    Dave has had these songs written for quite a while, so after he wrote the backbone of the songs, it was a case of taking it apart, adding/changing parts and putting it back together. Pete had most of the lyrics completed before recording with only a few changes made on the day of recording.
    The lyrics are mainly taking a look at the state of social and racial divisions in life and politics but trying to look with hope for improvement the current low we are in.

    Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
    We wanted to stick to the dark and heavy sound of our last album but we also wanted to look to where we can branch out into our music. We shared a lot of other bands with each other and talked about what aspects we liked and wanted to play.
    Dave based a lot of the guitar riffs on the drums and then worked into a song strong structure. We approach the songs based on the fact that we will be playing them live and we want to catch the vibe. The drums were tracked live with minimal touch ups, so that we can get that sense of live sound.

    Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
    There’s no secret sauce to our recording gear. It’s the type of equipment that normally find in a hardcore punk album. Lot’s of high gain distortion, amps, Sans amp on the bass.

    Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
    ‘Us and Them’ really highlights the sound that we were aiming for in this album. It’s a bit more melodic and mid tempo than our previous album, but it shows that progression in style that we wanted.

    Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
    Physical copies will be available on CD and Cassette, via Good Times Records and will also be available digitally via Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
