Merry Kriskmass My Friends, EP Released!

Media Release: 7th December, 2009

Merry Kriskmass My Friends, EP Released!
“I feel no pain, feel no fear, for the Krisk is a white reindeer” …… yes, a small stuffed white man and a reindeer have somehow managed to inspire The Phoenix Foundation’s brand new little EP called Merry Kriskmass, released today in record stores and digital outlets, and perfectly placed to take care of all your ‘Secret Santa’ needs! 
This very fun, slightly odd little 6-track EP managed to enter the bands lives during the time they were supposed to be recording their new album, providing much needed distraction from the often grueling album recording process. So much so that they’ve decided to release it in the hope that perhaps its brings some extra Christmas cheer, whilst also allowing the band added time to over analyse their future album.
The opening song title and (almost) EP title track ‘The Krisk’ is a sprightly little cracker which will soon boast a new video clip produced by the band themselves.
For the record, The Phoenix Foundation’s new album is actually coming along nicely and will be presented to your ears in the earlyish New Year. It’s the follow up to 2007’s Happy Ending, which through its recent European release, has just received a 5-star review in one of the UK’s most respected newspapers - The Independent, as well as many nice words from Mojo Magazine (4/5) and Drowned In Sound (8/10).
Merry Kriskmass is now available from all good record stores & digital outlets.

Goldie painted only a handful of landscapes, concentrating mainly on indigenous portraits, which earned him a global reputation as NZ’s finest painter of respected Māori elders (kaumātua). More

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
