Little Bark Release New Album - USB

LITTLE BARK RELEASES NEW ALBUM - USB

“If David Lynch had directed Miami Vice, this would be the soundtrack”

Drawing on influences from Vangelis to modern day electro such as Fever Ray, Little Bark has created her own Unique Sonic Broadcast with her album USB available from August 29th.

Following her critically acclaimed self-released debut Hope Is Rubbery in 2011, Little Bark has spent the last three years readying herself for her sophomore album USB (Unique Sonic Broadcast). Co-produced with long-term collaborator Stef Animal (The Golden Awesome, Mestar), the synth-based album is laid out like a film soundtrack with synth pop songs interspersed with lush instrumentals.

Two singles from the album have already been released, including ‘Modern Love’ which featured in Alt-Radio charts, and ‘Arpreggiator’ which was handpicked as part of the NZ Music Month’s Becks New New Zealand music project.

Out on CD and digitally, along with pre-orders for a limited edition purple vinyl pressing of the album.

"Sophie Burbery/Little Bark - spoilt with talent, a kaleidoscope of ideas, full of irresistible hooks" Radio NZ

“a rousing array of space age synths and catapulting electronics that collide to create a quasi-futuristic, instrumental dreamscape” – Chartshaker

Little Bark - USB is available from Flying Out: http://flyingout.co.nz/products/little-bark-usb-lp-cd-digital

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
