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

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>>
