Estère - Patchwork Soldier (live) Aston Rd Sessions

Estère - Patchwork Soldier (live)Aston Rd Sessions


Bringing her bedroom studio in to the Blue Barn recording studio, Estère and her musical companion Lola (mpc) dressed appropriately for the session and turned her live set in to what was a pop up Pyjama Party of the Electric Blue Witch Hop kind.

Performing Patchwork Soldier, the third track off her self-released debut album, Estère explains the subject of the song, "Our life experiences are like different pieces of a patchwork quilt sewn together. Sometimes we need to give and receive help when trying to stitch up our ripped seams”.

In April 2014 Estère released her debut self-titled album as a free download via Bandcamp. The album gained praise from International Blogs such as AfroPunk as well as receiving 2000 downloads within the first month of the release.

Fans of Estère applied for the opportunity to be part of an intimate and exclusive audience of only fifty at a secret location that was revealed on the day of the show. The venue was Blue Barn Studios in Newtown and offered fans the unique experience of watching a performance in a working studio environment. Preceeding the show, fans were treated to an open discussion between Estère and esteemed Music Journalist, Martyn Pepperell.

Of her experience performing at Aston Rd Sessions Estère says`"Aston Rd Sessions was a humbling opportunity to perform for an audience in an organic and intimate atmosphere. It felt like everybody in the room was my dear friend."

The sessions were recorded and filmed in front of a live audience over three consecutive nights in the heart of Wellington city in May. Each night featured one local artist, Estére, Louis Baker, and Thomas Oliver, who performed a selection of new and previously released songs.

Further sessions will be revealed in coming weeks with performances by Louis Baker, Thomas Oliver and more from Estère.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
