Transcendental Learning Collective release debut album

Transcendental Learning Collective release debut album ‘Shift’ at UFO on March 9


Transcendental Learning Collective release debut album ‘Shift’ at UFO on March 9

Recent additions to the Powertool Records family Transcendental Learning Collective are gearing up to release their debut album “Shift”. They are rapidly picking up fans as their single memorably titled ‘Munt in E7’ has been playlisted on 95bFM and is hitting the airwaves around New Zealand.

Formed by DJN (DRONE/DRONEnsemble, Rome, Crane, AFL) around 2010, the band recorded “SHIFT” during 2011 – 2012 with the fluid production skills of Mike Hodgson (Pitch Black, Tinnitus) and extra extra guitars courtesy of Sean O’Reilly (King Loser, Ola, Sferic Experiment).

Aucklanders should note Saturday March 9 in their diaries for the release party, to be held at New Lynn’s most spaced-out venue, UFO.

Expect minimal guitar grooves with maximum repetition courtesy of 3 guitars and a laptop; the band say it may be satisfying to listeners of Can, Pink Floyd, Suicide, Kraftwerk, The Fall, the Gordons, Spacemen 3, Fela Kuti, trance music, with a splash of dub.

They played a cracking show alongside Cat and Sock at Auckland’s Audio Foundation at the end of 2012. Check out the TLC video: ‘MUNT IN E7’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKMLCJrr5AY

TLC will be joined by cult favourites Used To Be Apes.
“Ignoring traditional song structure, Used to be Apes create their own musical journey. Mostly instrumental with the occasional punk rock inspired vocal, UTBA explore the reductive and the intense, the melodic and the discordant, the simple and the complex to create a stimulating.... my god what a load of wank! We are a band. We play Rock.”

TRANSCENDENTAL LEARNING COLLECTIVE with USED TO BE APES
Live at UFO, 11 Veronica St, New Lynn

8.30pm Saturday March 9
$5 entry fee; albums available
