Golden Age Sessions: Lydia Cole

GOLDEN AGE SESSIONS

LYDIA COLE

There’s undoubtedly something in the air around Auckland’s Golden Age studio where writer-producer Joel Little fashioned Lorde’s Pure Heroine and Broods’ forthcoming Evergreen. And now the Morningside studio has announced the arrival of the Golden Age Sessions.

The Golden Age Sessions will be a series of film clips recorded in the small but perfectly formed studio. They have invited some of their favourite artists down to record something unique to each occasion.

This first Golden Age Session captures the intimate and very special vibe of the studio, with Lydia Cole’s stunning interpretation of Haim’s recent hit “If I Could Change Your Mind”.

Recorded in a single take by engineer Nic Manders, Lydia draws out the heart of the California Haim girls’ bubbly pop track in a mesmerizing acoustic version of the synth-driven hit song.

Lydia showcases “If I Could Change Your Mind” as the brilliant piece of pop songwriting it is as well as digging deeper into the melancholic nostalgia at the song’s heart.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

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>>
