Arch Hill going down - the line

Arch Hill going down - the line

Hi there,

Here we go...Arch Hill goes South, some radio and some print.

Christchurch and Dunedin Arch hill head down the line to play two South Island gigs celebrating the release of the Arch Hill compilation album 'The Hill is Alive'. These dates are

- Friday the 10th of October, Dux De Lux - featuring Pine and Fang - Saturday the 11th October, Arc Cafe - featuring Pine, Fang and Darryl Baser

Buy the CD on the door and get into the gig for free. The only thing is that the Dux gig is free - so just buy the CD and appreciate the free entry! Look out for a Wellington show as well...a bit later on.

Also on the live front - look out for Gasoline Cowboy next Wednesday (15th Oct) at the Kings Arms in Auckland with the Mercenaries.

A bit of Radio If you listen to National Radio's Musical Chairs at 3.30pm this Saturday then you will hear Ben Fang talking about the Fang, the Arch Hill and stuff.

A bit of Press Below are some nice things we have heard that good people have been saying about our Arch Hill compilation 'The Hill is Alive'

Luv from Arch Hill

Some Reviews for 'The Hill is Alive' Arch Hill Compilation No2.

"Way impressive is the consistency of the music across so many different artists. Arch Hill has found it's niche by digging out mostly dreamy, atmospheric oddball pop music and bringing it to a wider audience. It's not often that a label is able to define itself by one type of music these days" - Marty Duda: Real Groove

"further proof of this wee label's pedigree and more than reason enough to sit up and listen" - Anthony Smith: Staple Magazine

"Everything here is highly melodic and generally excellent"**** - Dan Morrow: Rip It Up

"The whole album sounds a worthwhile and cohesive affair" - Russell Baillie: NZ Herald

"The Hill Is Alive demands a listen from anyone interested in original, clever pop from a range of great Kiwi artists. 8/10" James Dann - The Critic

...there are more - but we don't seem have them on hand right now!
