I'm going to keep this very brief, as we're at full froth due to The Others Way. Scroll down for some amazing new releases, pre-order and discounts. Here's a picture of the All Seeing Hand from last night's pre-party in Hamilton (check out the full photos at Under The Radar). Can't wait to see you all on K' Road tonight!

Over the past month we've been counting the number of sleeps until The Others Way festival. We're finally here, tonight's the night, and we can't be happier.

Officially the music starts at 7.45PM, but we've jumped the gun somewhat! Our friends at Grow Room will be DJing from 6PM next door at Def. 95bFM are broadcasting all day from our pop up shop in St Kevins Arcade (with live sets from Earth Tongue at 4:30 and Hopetoun Brown just after6PM). Make sure to check out these the business on Karangahape Road who are all doing deals for punters with wristbands too!

We're down to our last batch of Late Bird tickets. It's now or never! Grab your ticket below or feel free to head over to Under The Radar as well.
SNEAKY FEELINGS - Progress Junction
Who would have though it? Not only are Sneaky Feelings playing live again but they've recorded an album of new material especially for our taringas! It's there first recorded material in a couple of decades and the wait was well worth it. The album is called Progress Junction and features the band doing what the do best, but with a few zesty extras (check out the snippets of audio from New Zealand radio archives). The Sneakys describe the record as if 'voices from the past started talking to the present'. Grab yourself a CD now!

REB FOUNTAIN - Little Arrows

Having honed her chops in The Eastern, Folk / Americana stalwart Reb Fountain returns withLittle Arrows. It's an album that shows of her true skill of pairing song telling to music.


HERRIOT ROW - Lesser Stars

Herriot Row is the new musical project of Simon Comber.
RNZ's Nick Bollinger describes this as the record as a 'perfect piece of subverted pop'.


It seems that John Dwyer can't help but continuously tweak his musical projects. His most recent change involves his band name to Oh Sees (formerly Thee Oh Sees), and their new record Orc cracks and thunders with the same garage DIY spirit we've grown to love.

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
