Pine - Akira Sunrise - out October 11th

Those three clever Pinesters have finished tussling with the home studio in downtown Christchurch making album number two, and it is out Monday next week. It was recorded mostly in the early morning hours in order to avoid the noisy late night heavy metal neighbors, or disturbing the office wallahs during the day. It might have taken a little longer than planned, but they have come up super trumps with Akira Sunrise. You may have already heard the single See-Saw, which has been doing the rounds on the radio and telly. We will tell you more about it next week when the album comes out.

Pine play a release show for Akira Sunrise at the Wunderbar in Christchurch on Saturday October 9th with Alec Bathgate...look out for other NZ tour dates shortly

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances.
