The Lumiere Reader have released an online music-documentary featuring Seth Frightening, Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing, Shab Orchestra and I.E.Crazy as they tour the country. A “contemplative ode to a brood of genre-bending Auckland musicians”. Stream here & get further insights below:

Zac Arnold of RNZ’s Music 101 spoke with Claire to discuss the difficulties of capturing the essence of live performance and what it means to be a musician on the margins:

And ELECTION VANDALISM IN NEW ZEALAND:
To round this out, here’s a picture of NZ’s ‘honorable‘ Prime Minister, John Key:

The NZ election is held on September 20th and already there’s a whole blog dedicated to photos of defaced party billboards! Apparently election-hoarding vandalism is at an “unprecendented” level this year.
