THE ALL SEEING HAND – NEW ALBUM / VIDEO / TOUR!

Thursday, November 24th, 2016


Greg the skin-chicken covets his nest egg

It’s time for The All Seeing Hand’s annual season of mind-blowing musical town-hopping radical fun times! With a new album out on December 1st (listen below) the trio are embarking on a national tour (details below) and have released a twisted video for ‘Cro-Magnon Corp’:

“It’s a glimpse of the ways people are enticed to wilfully participate in an extractive nightmarish game by spreading fear about the consequences of not getting your foot on the “property ladder” and grabbing your very own nest egg before the basket is empty” – Ben Knight, in conversation with Vice.

The All Seeing Hand are easily one of the most exciting bands in the country and MUST be seen live for full effect. Check them out, ESPECIALLY with the glorious added bonus of Unsanitary Napkin and E-N-T!

“It’s an interesting time to be making music. The themes in Sand To Glass emerged as a reflection of the dystopian sociopolitical environment we’re faced with right now, but from a zoomed-out perspective that looks more at patterns than specific events; the emergence and normalisation of mass surveillance over the last few years, the rise of fear-mongering reality-TV stars as political leaders, all against backdrop of ravenous neoliberal capitalism extracting so much that the capacity of the Earth to sustain life is literally under threat. But at the same time the album conveys ecstatic optimism for transformation in resistance to destruction. It’s definitely more about asking questions than offering answers, but hope and imagination seem more important than ever…” –> Read more from this excellent UTR interview

TOUCAN BROWN, a musical home movie – here’s a lovely doco of Athuzela Brown’s tour of the South Island with Toucan Stubbs earlier this year. Made by Theo Taylor:



The annual 48 Hour Film Festival starts tonight. Hopefully we’ll get ours in on time this time! To get us in the mood, here’s a funny old one by Taika Waititi (Director of Boy, Eagle Vs Shark, etc):

E N T: CENTRAL COMPLEX

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Here’s a cool ambient/drone EP I mastered recently for Nathan Taare, aka one of the sweetest dudes around!


“CENTRAL COMPLEX was recorded and mixed throughout Central America over 5 months during 2012 – Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica. The tracks were brought back to Upper Hutt and paired with additional tracks that were recorded in a storage unit. The final sessions were finished off inside a Toyota Corolla (TK3560).”

Recorded and Mixed by Nathan Taare. Mastered by Thomas Lambert. Art work by Nathan Taare.

Nathan is also a film-maker and prosthetics-enthusiast, responsible for gorey clips such as “Corey Grinder I: In the Kitchen” and “Corey Grinder II: Bike Ride” ((CAUTION: gushing blood not for the faint hearted!!))

Here’s a more family-friendly video from E N T’s previous album, Street Dreams:
