The Brunettes return home for one Auckland show in December. That’s right. Three months on the global tour road and the Brunettes have clocked up more than just gig miles!

Further adventures in Paris found the ever stylish Brunettes in front of the lens of celebrity photographer, Kevin Abosch. Better known for his portraits of Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and his debut movie, Panda, Mr Abosch is a fan of the band and has produced some amazing photos that we hope we can share soon.

The NZ student radio awards, The BNets, held last Friday honoured the band with the esteemed

“Outstanding Achievement Award”. A timely pointer to the fabulous progress this unique band have made over the past year and a half. Signed by inarguably the coolest record label on the planet, Sub Pop, for the U.S., U.K., Europe and Japan. The band have made a stunning album ‘Structure & Cosmetics’ that earned an 8 star review from U.K’s music bible, NME; gained over 250’000 hits on youtube for first video ‘Her Hairagami Set’ and played successful shows around the world!

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
