COOLWAVE - “So Sad”

COOLWAVE - “So Sad”


Single released January 24th 2014 through MUZAI Records


Having released his début EP back in 2013, UK artist Jack Shea a.k.a Coolwave returns to the forefront with his latest series of works – a pair of unabashed, sixties infused pop melodies that make up So Sad, released January 24th through MUZAI Records.

A follow up of sorts to the Summer's Here! EP, which caught the attentions of New Zealand music websites such as Cheese on Toast and Undertheradar.co.nz, in part due to it's overt “kiwi-jangle” sound, So Sad was penned during the later half of 2013 – the titular A-Side a sombre ballad that was briefly highlighted on the last EP (“Summer Moon”) and the bubblegum-surfer-pop B-Side, “Girl From Blackpool.”

Once again teaming up with producer Serge Saint Rose, So Sad marks a collaborative effort with Daniel Alexander Blackball (The Attic), creating an original piece of single artwork and further helping push Shea as one of the more understated artists on MUZAI... and it's strongest musical link to the United Kingdom so far.

So Sad is available through http://muzai.bandcamp.com from January 24th.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
