NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month II

I was hoping to get at least three articles written this month... looks like that's not happening. In any case, the third article was going to be about a certain Miss Yelich-O'Connor, who doesn't exactly need any publicity any more.

People who've been following me on that wretched Facebook platform may by now realise (unless they've been deliberately ignoring me) that my nephew's band has recorded a full-length album, and they're planning on releasing it later this year.

They've recently put a sample song from the album up on You Tube. This time it's a short, sharp rock song with a very 2000s sound - not influenced by the White Stripes so much as working in the same musical tradition.
