The Phoenix Foundation – ‘Tom’s Lunch’ EP and Release Tour

UnderTheRadar Presents
The Phoenix Foundation – ‘Tom’s Lunch’ EP and Release Tour

The Phoenix Foundation have wasted no time moving on to new recordings after the release of 2013’s Fandango. Luke Buda felt a sense of urgency to get to work with the band’s new drummer, Chris O’Connor and to push themselves into new directions.

Fandango was the end of era, the full stop on the bands journey to find pristine production perfecto-land. Tom’s Lunch is the start of a new chapter and what better way to follow up a double album of mystical pop than with an EP of short snappy tracks, featuring two tracks mixed by David Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala).

Tom’s Lunch EP will be released on 16 May on CD and Digital formats, Pre-Orders Start today from Itunes, JBHIFI and direct from bandcamp.

In celebration of their upcoming release of their brand-new EP ‘Tom’s Lunch’, The Phoenix Foundation announces a six-stop New Zealand tour this May/June presented by UnderTheRadar.

Their first NZ tour in a year will give audiences a chance to see them perform the new songs live for the very first time. Tickets on sale today from www.undertheradar.co.nz and support for all shows will be announced in the coming weeks.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Pretence. No Bullshit. Fine Poem.

John Dickson doesn’t publish much; never has. Indeed, this new collection is his first such in 18 years. As he wryly and dryly states,

I’ve published two slim volumes, and spent all
My time working on the next.

Scoop Review of Books: Extraordinary Anywhere: Essays On Place From Aotearoa NZ

The New Zealand landscape undoubtedly is very beautiful, but so is the British one, and my attachment to this country is much more about some particular places, and the memories and emotions that in them combine, than it is about the landscape as a whole. More>>

Review: Bernard Herrmann's Scores For 'Vertigo' & 'Psycho'

Howard Davis: The NZSO's adventurousness was richly-rewarded, as the deeply appreciative Wellington audience was given the opportunity not only to see a couple of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest films, but also to hear fine renditions of two of Bernard Herrmann's most accomplished film scores. More>>
