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: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story
by Helene Wong.
This is the fascinating story of Helene Wong, born in 1949 in Taihape to Chinese parents: her mother, born soon after her parents migrated here, and her father, born in China but sent to relatives in Taihape at seven to get an education in English. More>>

Chiku: Hamilton Zoo's Baby Chimpanzee Named

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand have confirmed that the existing ANZ Championship format will discontinue after the current 2016 season, with both organisations to form national netball leagues in their respective countries. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
