Estère covers PJ Harvey's 'The Words That Maketh Murder'

Aston Rd Sessions Estère covers PJ Harvey's 'The Words That Maketh Murder'


The queen of electric blue witch-hop Estère takes English alternative rock musician PJ Harvey’s lead single from her eighth studio album released in 2011 ‘The Words That Maketh Murder’ and transforms it into a lively electronic train ride.

With Lola, Estère’s MPC, as the carriage and herself as the conductor she takes the audience on a journey through PJ Harvey’s lyrical landscape of melody and the suffering of war raising them to their feet chanting ‘the words that maketh murder’.

"PJ Harvey is an inspirational artist and I love the atmosphere that this song creates through its strong story telling and almost volatile melody. That's why I chose it as my cover”, say’s Estere.

Aston Rd Sessions were recorded and filmed in front of a live audience over three consecutive nights in the heart of Wellington city in May.

Fans of the artists applied for the opportunity to be a part of an intimate and exclusive audience of fifty only at a secret location which was revealed on the day of the show. The venue was the Blue Barn Studio in Newtown, which was a unique opportunity for many of the fans to be in a working recording studio.

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>>
