Charlotte Forrester, aka Womb

“Record labels are machines of hype, or at least they used to be. Some labels seem to exist for more esoteric reasons. Bring the right music together under the same label and strange alchemy can happen. Samuel Scott certainly found that to be the case at Sonorous Circle.”

The following video is recommended viewing – John Oliver manages a comedic look at police militarisation in America and provides an informative summary of the current situation in Ferguson:


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.

Hopefully I’ll get a more constructive look at the contenders in NZ politics soon. In the mean time, make sure you are enrolled to vote!

LIVE TO AIR: GLASS VAULTS ON DAYTROTTER

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

GLASS VAULTS
Illustration by Johnnie Cluney

This is from a Live to Air that the Glass Vaults dudes did in New York. Includes a very nice recording of a very nice new track, Victorias!

www.daytrotter.com/#!/concert/glass-vaults/20055986-37383214

“Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce of the Wellington, New Zealand, group Glass Vaults give unnervings blankets and they make them feel as cozy as they ever could hope to. They wrap them up, as if they were sick little children, coughing their brains out and running fevers in the triple digits, just burning up at night, suffering through their own doings and those that they didn’t bargain for. It feels like a decomposing, like some damp, lumpy posture – as if the people in the very deep, thick pools of these songs were waiting around for a phoenix, or for their arms to spontaneously grow wings out of their forearms and biceps. They’re ready to be lifted off of the ground, but they’re pretty sure that they’re going to be stuck down here with the dumpsters and the exhaust fumes…”

GLASS VAULTS NEW EP

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Glass Vaults 'Into Clear'

SCR015
Glass Vaults – Into Clear EP

Released November 2011.
Glass Vault’s Into Clear is a pale blue sky. Half awake / Half asleep. Humming incantations. Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce – now with the help of Signer & Skallander legend, Bevan Smith – using their usual mishmash of electronics, voice & guitars, have cast forth a new EP; This one more consistently ambient than the last, gently rubbing at your ears like a good friend (for a solid 28 minutes). Each song is a wide open space but extremely delicate; for the most part moving at a slow, almost changeless hover and then shifting subtly as if guided by a gentle hand.

Richard’s singing voice, at times breath-taking, earnestly sets the scene for each track, floating through dream-state electronics singing songs of light and fading memories. Glass Vaults give the listener three choices; engage, submit or ignore. These are hymns for no One but Everyone.

Stoner Gospel anyone?
