Night Lovell announces first ever NZ show this May


Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are elated to announce that experimental hip hop prodigy Night Lovell will play his first ever New Zealand show this May. The young Canadian will be stopping by Auckland to perform tracks off his acclaimed, independently released albums Concept Vague and Red Teenage Melody, as well as unreleased tracks from his upcoming album.

‘You may not know Night Lovell but you definitely will.’
XXL Mag

At the age of 20, Night Lovell has already locked away two full length releases. Concept Vague and Red Teenage Melody perfectly capture his singular and elusive approach to hip hop. Lifted from both records, his videos for ‘Dark Night’, ‘Jamie’s Sin’ and ‘Fraud’ are stylistically linked through grainy, cultivated landscapes of his hometown of Ottawa, Canada.

Today, Night Lovell continues to release a stream of new sounds that slowly curate his musical identity, which has seen his entry into trap heard on tracks like ‘Still Cold’ and ‘Contraband’.

For the past few years Night Lovell has been travelling around the world performing across Canada, the USA and Europe, and finally it’s our turn. His latest tour saw him sell out 28 dates across Europe, some of which were captured in Moscow, Kiev, Milan, Berlin and Prague.

‘There’s no telling how crazy people would go for some of these tracks in a live setting.’

The groundswell for Night Lovell is beginning. Come and see him before the rest of the world catches on.

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>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

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. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

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>>
