Kerretta announce new album: 'Pirohia'

Kerretta announce new album: 'Pirohia'



MIDIUM RECORDS are proud to announce the release of Taite Music Prize nominees KERRETTA's new album 'Pirohia'.

Available 05 SEP 2014.

This New Zealand trio has toured the world for the last four years and ‘Pirohia’ will be the band’s third full length album.

Kerretta have shared stages over Europe, North America, and Australasia with the likes of The Breeders, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Explosions In The Sky, Mono, and have performed festivals such as Incubate (NEL), Dunk! Festival (BEL), SXSW (USA) and Big Day Out (NZL).

Primarily instrumental, Kerretta revel with steadfast glee, the ins and the outs, the ups and the downs of a purely sonic narrative. A narrative that is heavy and dark, twisted with shards of beauty and danger all sitting securely on top of a churning slow burn groove. On one track only does the trio relent, and then in an unconventional fashion featuring vocals in Te Reo Maori fashioned along the ancient sun-bleached bones of a traditional Maori waiata.

Having been compared to the likes of Tool, Russian Circles, and described as a thinking bogan’s rock band, Kerretta are excited to unleash their first album since 2011.

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>>
