Upcoming Releases Your Way
While things may seem a little quiet on the release front up at Arch Hill don¹t worry - things are brewing away nicely under the lid. In probable order of release over the coming months...subject to some creative type variation...we bring you.

An EP by Christchurch hi-lo-fi bedroom tech specialist Bachelorette (Annabel Alpers from Hawaii 5-0) who combines old skool drum machine beats, real drums, analogue keyboards, guitars and a miscellaneous selection of retro-futuristic effects. Bachelorette produces her own mix of vocal layered electrosynth-pop - with a touch of psychedelic country for good measure.

An EP by Auckland¹s alt-country kings the Boxcar Guitars, featuring the track "My Love is Blue" and a bunch of new tunes - if you have been anywhere near a live music gig in Auckland over the last year then it is likely you will have seen them strumming it up live. They have played shows with everyone from Lambchop to Lemonhead-Evan-Dando

...and the new Ghostplane album is sounding monumentally good...

We can tell you lots more about all these closer to the time. And we've got some other stuff cooking as well.

Ta from Arch Hill.
