Win a double pass to Shapeshifter

Thanks to Shapeshifter we've got a double pass to give away to one of the
shows on their upcoming New Zealand tour. Shapeshifter have been one of
amplifier's most popular bands for the past few months and their track,
When I Return (Feat. Ladi 6), recently hit number 1 on our track chart.


From Street To Sky - Unity Pacific

'From Street To Sky' is the story of Tigilau Ness as told through his
group, Unity Pacific. The album was recorded at Revolver's number one
studio and the majority of it consists of full band live takes with
limited use of overdub and effects. The band took their cue from the
classic era of roots reggae when strength of musicianship, lyrics and
production were at the fore.

Tokyo - Pine
Pine's latest video for their single Tokyo is a performance video set
amongst a large contingent of Robots and paraphernalia. An amazing visual
experience. Pine continue to produce a classic southern pop sound with
lo-fi intensity and great melodic sensibility.

Luv Came Thru - Dukes

The Dukes formed in early 2003 and write and perform raw, groovy, guitar
music. The Dukes are releasing their resulting debut long player this
year, with the first single and music video 'Luv Came Thru'.

Bobby and the Bonsters

music for the under fives. Bobby and the Bonsters comprises a husband and
wife team who with combined qualifications in both music and Early
childhood have researched the under fives and tested their music
