Xavier Rudd Announces the Spirit Bird New Zealand Tour

The release of his striking seventh album, Spirit Bird, has taken multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd to sell-out shows and festivals across Europe, UK, Australia, US and Canada throughout 2012. Now, Rudd is proud to announce the Spirit Bird worldwide tour is making it’s way to New Zealand.

Xavier Rudd will visit Christchruch, Wellington, New Plymouth and Auckland in April. “It's always a treat to come to NZ.” Rudd said, “I haven't had much opportunity in my time to tour there, but I love the groundedness of folks and the celebration of culture throughout. Looking forward to soaking a little of that energy up again!”

Already producing his highest-selling single and most played radio single to date with
Follow The Sun (reaching #44 in the recently announced Triple J Hottest 100), Spirit Bird is Rudd’s deepest and most explorative album yet.

The album sees the ever socially-conscience Rudd delve into his musical and spiritual ancestry and took him from the threatened landscape of Western Australia’s Kimberley region, to the hills and lakes of Canada.

Shaped by his history but continuing to break new ground, Xavier Rudd is at his most creative on Spirit Bird – once again painting breathtaking pictures with vivid, unmistakable tones. Hypnotic ceremonial rhythms ease effortlessly into tender folk songs. Gritty guitar blues sits perfectly alongside entrancing yidaki passages. Rudd’s voice, and the voice of his ancestors, yet again bearing truth and knowledge.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
