CSS Return to New Zealand

THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBE


POWERSTATION - AUCKLAND

Brazilian dance-punk four-piece CSS make a welcome return to NZ in November following their now-legendary sold out rowdy-as-hell shows of 2007 and 2008 and a stellar turn at 2011's Big Day Out.

CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy or 'I'm so tired of being sexy' - a Beyonce quote - for the uninitiated) are now sporting an all-female line-up since the departure of founding member Adriano Cintra. The band released their fourth album Planta last month, recorded in Los Angeles and helmed by producer-of-the-moment Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio).  Led by the irrepressible diva Lovefoxxx, the album is another electro-pop confection that includes a duet with Gossip's Beth Ditto and features songs co-written with Tim Armstrong of Rancid.

Formed in Sao Paulo in 2003, their 2005 debut captured the tenor of the times thanks to hook-laden, irony heavy tracks like 'Meeting Paris Hilton', 'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex' and instant ear-worm 'Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above'. Always a tumultuous live prospect, they always come to party and their Powerstation show in November will certainly be no exception.

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
