New Rhombus album out – everywhere but here!

Drop the funk, hold the hip-hop and serve up the soul; the new Rhombus album, Onwards: Remixes and Archives is out now, available online only outside of Australia – which includes New Zealand.

The ten-track album of remixes and rarities tracks from previous Rhombus albums Bass Player and Future Reference was a purely home-grown production; marketed, designed and mastered in New Zealand.

However, because of existing record contract restrictions the album is only available in Australia, through Vitamin Records (www.vitamin.net.au)

“Although it won’t be in Aotearoa shops, New Zealand fans won’t miss out because it will be available at our live shows and through the websites,” said Rhombus manager Koa Williams. “Get online to order and it will turn up in the post in a matter of days.”

Album samples can be heard at Rhombus website www.myspace.com/rhombusmusic, featuring the remixing skills of DJ Fitchie (Fat Freddys Drop), Rhian Sheehan and Submariner.

“We’re honoured to have Fitchie, Submariner and Rhian on board to re-rub our favourite tunes,” said Koa. “They’ve mixed their own flavour into our tracks and created some crisp new sounds.

“Onwards is a top road-trip collection, which is ideal for us ‘cos we’ve got a great 2007 summer schedule lined up in Aotearoa festivals and shows throughout Australia and Japan.”

The album also features a breezy revision of The Specials’ Ghost Town, a dubbed-out jam covering the classic British post-punk anthem.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
