In Swings Anika

In Swings Anika


From releasing her most critically acclaimed album yet, Anika Moa will be performing throughout Aotearoa this December.
  
In Swings The Tide is Anika’s latest release which brings a country flavour to her pop sensibilities and is her first ever self-produced album. The albums’ first single “Dreams in My Head” is currently the number one New Zealand track on radio and is a testament to Anika’s undeniable song writing and vocal talents.
  
After rave reviews and a huge audience response from her recent support of Ryan Adams, Anika knows how to woo and capture a crowd. Her live shows are a myriad of beautiful melodies and amazing musicianship  - seeing Anika live is where she oozes her unique character. Joining her on stage is the incredible talent of Nick Gaffney on drums and Chip Matthews on bass.
  
Anika will be supported by the folk talents of singer songwriter Age Pryor.  Age Pryor, well known for his contribution to Fly My Pretties has just released his third solo album Shanks Pony, where single “I Don’t Want” was on the hit movie Eagle vs Shark.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
