TO SPEND MORE TIME LOOKING AT THE GROUND THAN AT THE SKY – AN INTERVIEW W/ I.E.CRAZY


Claire Duncan

“Maybe if I was a happier person and the world were less fucked up, or if I could just stomach the putrid bullet of being a good capitalist and expressed myself through home renovations and new curtains, I wouldn’t feel the need to write music at all.” – Claire Duncan

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.”

MARTYN PEPPERELL INTRODUCES PAPERGHOST & WOMB

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Music enthusiast and reviewer, Martyn Pepperell, has introduced a couple of SC affiliates for TheAudience.co.nz recently, introducing new tracks by Paperghost and Womb. Read more & link to the streams below!

PAPERGHOST – BADSPIRIT:

Paperghost
Drawing by Zach Webber

“With his forthcoming new album, Signal Fingers, Wellington composer, producer, and sound designer Paperghost (real name: Zach Webber) concocts a cycle of densely layered songs born from intricate stories and environments. Surreal and architectural, his music mixes imagination with reality, fictions and personal experiences so blurred you can’t quite tell one from the other.”

Read more and stream the track, BADSPIRIT here > www.theaudience.co.nz/news/martyn-pepperell-introduces-paperghost/

The full Signal Fingers album will be available for download here on Wednesday!


WOMB – AIRPLANE:

Womb

Charlotte Forrester (previously of Athuzela Brown) also shared a new track, Airplane, from her forthcoming EP:

‘Describing her music process as ritualistic, Charlotte has found she writes best within a sacred space and the correct accompanying headspace. “I feel it is necessary to return to the emotional landscapes the songs were written in, so that the recordings will harness the nature of the song I’ve written,” she explains.’
