After turning heads with an early mixtape, Quinn XCII’s debut EP “Change Of Scenery” in 2015 put him on the map, snaring millions of online streams and viral coverage across the blogosphere. His follow up EP “Bloom” then cemented his ability to meld styles and write on a variety of subject matter. But it wasn’t until his appearance as a feature vocalist on the track “Kings of Summer” by long-time friend and producer ayokay thrust him into the mainstream. The track became the sleeper summer hit in 2016 reaching #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts and on HypeMachine.

Having signed with Columbia Records, Quinn XCII’s debut album “The Story of Us” was released in September 2017 with its lead single “Straightjacket” racking up almost 35 million streams on Spotify to date, where he has over 3.3 million monthly listeners. After selling out two full North American headline tours in support of the album and with upcoming festival performances such Governors Ball 2018 (NYC) alongside N.E.R.D., Khalid and Post Malone, the 25-year-old makes his way to Australia and New Zealand in a debut that’s not to be missed.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
