Well the New Zealand Summer is well and truely out-of-here. That means more time in the home studio listening to tunes, reading books and blogs, drinking mulled wine and hangin’ on the radio.
Here’s what’s new on the Starlifter Wireless.

I’ve been listening to the She & Him album constantly for the last month, it’s 50/60s motown girlie group pop with a modern take. The Mint Chicks latest EP Bad Buzz comes on a USB that you can buy from www.musichy.pe – the song I’ve uploaded from that EP is also on the 60s pop tip, albeit a bit fuzzed up. The latest Tame Impala LP is AMAZING! Think Cream, Led Zep, The Beatle with a dash of LSD, YUMMY. And of course, No Aloha. This is the second song from their demo ep that I’ve added to Starlifter. They’re Christchurch boys doing the melodic rock thing, I’m really looking forward to more from these guys.

Garageland were one of my favourite kiwi bands in high school. ‘Nude Star’ is from their debut LP, ‘Last Exit to Garageland’. It’s a spacie psych-rock number and great for rainy days.
