FEATURE CD – ALPHARHYTHM
This week we have a pearler. Ten years in the making, 'Sentient Beings' is the debut Long-Player from Otepoti's own Alpharhythm. Micro-house, deep dub trenches and expansive broken beat collide in a wash of beautiful clectronica. Brace yourself, because this one-inch-punch of an album is here for your soul. We will be giving away copies of the album all next week on Drive and Breakfast.
DPAG LATE BREAKFAST
It's never too early for a few gin and tonics and some smooth lounge on a Saturday; pull out that old set of pearls and catch up with Paul K Hoskin from Twinset, as they launch their sixth studio album 'Flavour Country'. Justin Paton has recovered enough to drop in for a chat about his acclaimed book 'How To Look At A Painting', and Carl A Mears kicks us off with his special blend of cultural vitriol. Yum.
WITH YOUR ONECARD
This week you could score yourself: tickets to Cornerstone Roots gig at Arc; Mates of State ‘Bring It Back’ CDs; Calexico ‘Garden Ruin’CDs; Salmonella Dub ‘Remixes and Radio Cuts’ CDs plus some Pavement Magazines.
WE LIKE DISCOUNTS
Next Thursday dDub are in town. They are playing at Arc Café and it’s only $11 with your 2006 Onecard. Sweeeet deal.
