Every month, Wellington City Libraries acquires new CD’s for its large, broad, eclectic collection, and Wellington music is no exception. We regularly inspect local music websites, trawl music vendors latest releases and check out independent labels like Flying Nun, Arch Hill, Rattle and Lil’ Chief for the latest in Wellington and New Zealand music. So, with this influx of mint music in mind, every two months we’ll provide the latest titles and artists added to our Wellington music collection…
New album from Head Like A Hole is full of the big catchy power riffs we’ve come to expect from these Wellington rock stalwarts. Four years since Blood Will Out, the reunion album and first in 13 years, their music has lost none of it’s enthusiasm and gained a degree of lyrical resonance. And they aren’t afraid to go outside the hard rock playbook – one of the best songs on the album is the slower ‘Mexico’.
