NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month 2015

Another year, and another not-really-having-a-theme problem. Again I haven't had the time to do much of anything blog-wise, let alone sort out a theme and set of tracks for New Zealand Music Month. So, for another year, it's going to be a haphazard collection of whatever I can find at short notice.

This band is Prospero - another of Matt's bands (he has already got into the habit of being in multiple bands at one playing different styles of music) - recorded live at the end of last year. This band, he calls 'folk-rock'. I think it possibly owes more to the Dunedin sound as filtered through the Mumford and Sons generation, but he's got plenty of time yet to discover Sandy Denny and the rest of the usual suspects.
