RIP Peter Gutteridge
We received this sad news from Flying Nun last week; our condolences go out to Peter Gutteridge’s family, friends and many musical collaborators.
” We are greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Peter Gutteridge earlier in the week. Peter was a Flying Nun original, a founding member of The CleanThe Chills and of course his own brilliant band Snapper. A great talent, he was also member of the Great Unwashed, involved in many Dunedin bands and went on to release beautiful solo material across the years. All of us, and so many people around the world, have been touched and affected by his music, whether it be the swirling fuzz of the guitar or haunting piano melodies, Peter was a true hero of New Zealand music, and will be deeply missed.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this very sad time.
Thank you Peter for all the music, may you rest in peace.
Peter’s music travelled far and touched many people. Here are some selected tributes.”

Artist registration for The Great Escape 2015 is now officially open in partnership with Music Glue. If you are interested in submitting your act for consideration, all you have to do is register for free here. All submissions will be reviewed buy the TGE team and those art its chosen to perform will be contacted directly over the coming months.

The Unsigned Only songwriting competition, an offshoot of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC), this year has awarded the band Late Night Poets with Second Place in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter category. Additional New Zealand artists have garnered numerous Honorable Mention wins.
Late Night Poets, a quintet hailing from Auckland, is the brainchild of Luke Parker and showcases his songwriting talents. The emotion of his music stems from his early years when he wrote about heartbreak and the usual teenage fare. His music has matured since then, but there’s still heartbreak (the winning song ‘My Darling’ is a tale of a slow-burning unrequited relationship), but it’s delivered in a barnstorming folk shuffle, as if Parker’s new solution is to dance the pain away. The band, made up of Parker, his brother ChristianRobbie Lawton,Jassher Clayton and Tiffany Ross, lends an electric chemistry to Parker’s tunes. Songs are delivered with a four-to-the-floor backbone, jangling tambourines, foot-stomping and exultant vocal harmonies commandeered straight from the 60’s.
The overall Grand Prize winner is awarded to the US band Goodbye June for their song “Daisy.” Comprised of three cousins, indie-rockers Goodbye June released their highly anticipated debut album Nor The Wild Music Flow in 2012 and have not stopped since. With a European tour under their belt and a second album on the way, this band is poised for greater success. Their winning song “Daisy” is a surefire hit and will be released on their upcoming album.
See the full list of winners here. 

The dates for the 49th annual Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards have been announced with the lead up to the country’s biggest night in music kicking off in just a few weeks’ time.

The 2014 programme officially kicks off in October with the finalists’ announcement event on October 16 and the Critics’ Choice Prize showcase event on October 29.
Then in November the focus shifts to the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards themselves with New Zealand’s biggest night in music taking place on Thursday November 20. Visit the Vodafone NZ Music Awards website.

New release fanfare

Silver Scroll Finalist Louis Baker releases his limited edition 7″ record ‘Just Want To Thank You’.
Courtesy of the Red Bull Music Academy the record features one song, Just Want To Thank You, with two versions both recorded at the Red Bull Studios in Auckland.
Side B – the acoustic version of the song was released in June and today you can hear Side A co-produced with New Zealand-born, Brisbane based soul-singer and producer Jordan Rakei who features on BV’s and keys. Read more here.

Chelsea Jade announces the anticipated release of the Beacons EP, due out October 24 via Universal Music NZ. The announcement comes with the premiere of the video for ‘Night Swimmer’, directed by Alexander Gandar. Produced by Justyn Pilbrow with additional recordings by Ben Lawson, the EP will feature six new tracks under her new musical persona.

Black River Drive’s new song ‘Grenade‘, from their forthcoming album QUICKSAND, punches like a heavyweight champion.  A meaty, punk rock guitar riff melds with a crushing gang vocal chorus that you’ll be singing along with by the end of the song.
“I knew I had something special with this one” says lead singer and BRD songwriter Sam Browne.  “There was something there from the first time we jammed on it – it just felt big, bad and right from the very beginning.”  The song was inspired by a short and extremely tumultuous relationship with an international poker player.  “At any given moment, I wasn’t sure if she was going to kiss me, punch me in the face or burn my house down.  It was many things, but it wasn’t boring!”
 
Black River Drive’sQuicksand will be released on November 7th, with a nationwide tour to promote the album throughout November.

‘Woke up to a Storm’ is the third release from French for Rabbits debut LP ‘Spirits’ which is due for release in New Zealand on the 31st october via Home Alone Music and internationally via Lefse Records. The single is described by Stereogum as “often shrouded by atmospherics and mystique”. Listen to the song here.

Auckland-based duo Angelo King (Third3ye) and Jono Das release the second single, Indigenius’ featuring Melodownz (also of Third3ye) off their debut album ‘The Lion & The Lotus‘.
The duo are set to release their debut collaborative , The Lion & The Lotus, on October 5th to celebrate the birthday of Angelo’s father and musical inspiration. ‘Indigenius’ was mixed, mastered and recorded by Beau Jefferies and produced by Eoin.
Angelo King has defined the lyrical meaning within ‘Indigenius’ as a reference to the original genius of our indigenous roots. While once connected to earth and spirit, the domestication of the human being has pulled us further away from our soulful origins and towards a more disconnected existence.
This track is an ode to the disparate relationship between the intelligence of nature and its creation of perfection and our discontent with what is. Read more here…

New release fanfare

Tiki Taane “Fallen Angels”
Tiki Taane has released his new song ‘Falling Angels’ in collaboration with World Vision, with all proceeds going to World Vision’s work rehabilitating former child soldiers as part of next month’s Live Below The Line challenge. Tiki will also be ‘living below the line’ for aid agency World Vision, consuming only $2.25 worth of food and beverages for five days to highlight the everyday struggle of the 1.2 billion people worldwide who live in extreme poverty.

Tiki’s interest in the fight for global equity is deeply rooted in his Maori heritage. The proceeds that Tiki raises will fund World Vision’s life-changing work in Gulu, Uganda, where a centre has been founded to rehabilitate former child soldiers abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army back into their community. The harrowing crimes that the LRA commit against the children they abduct are some of the worst on the planet. One of their most shocking practices is the way they force captives to become perpetrators of violent acts – often against those they love.

World Vision are providing that support in Gulu by distributing basic necessities such as clothing and bedding, facilitating psychological rehabilitation, arranging access to medical treatment, working with partner agencies to hold vocational and skills training sessions, and helping vulnerable families improve their economic wellbeing by adopting technology that will lead to increased food production. ‘Falling Angels’ can be downloaded via ITunes here: (insert link for song).

Louie Baker just wants to thank you
Louie Baker’s limited edition 7”single “Just Want To Thank You” was recorded in the Red Bull Studios in Auckland, celebrating Louis’ time spent at the New York City edition of the Academy last year.  “When writing this song, I was musing on two ideas, the first was about how thankful I am to have such support in my life, and also how we as humans are pushed and pulled. How do we deal with mass media manipulation? Separatism and disconnectedness? Do we let these things govern us?” Says Baker. The track is co-produced with New Zealand-born, Brisbane based soul-singer and producer Jordan Rakei who features on BV’s and keys.  “It’s basically a big boom bap, soul-style track with heavy drums, synths, bass, guitars, and stacks of vocal layers,” comments Baker.  Following this is the acoustic version of “Just Want To Thank You”, performed by Louis solo.
7” Release show: San Fran, Wellington on Sat 20th  September

Around the World

Australian publishing company Native Tongue have secured the publishing rights to Prince’s entire back catalogue under a new deal with NPG Publishing.
Established by the funk icon, NPG’s catalogue includes Prince’s entire back catalogue and music from hisupcoming album(s). The company was established earlier this year, marking the first time in two decades that the superstar’s publishing rights have been independently managed.
Under the deal Native Tongue – who are celebrating their tenth anniversary this year – will control the catalogue in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea. It includes songs like KissCream and U Got The Look.
“It truly is an honour to represent such an iconic and musically amazing catalogue,” said Native Tongue General Manager Jamie Gough. “Prince has been a musical pioneer his entire career and to have his personal publishing company choose Native Tongue during such an exciting period is a real privilege.”
As well as having local writers like Clairy Browne, Jon Toogood, The Amity Affliction and Wagons Native Tongue’s international roster includes music from Elvis Presely, Daft Punk, Lorde, Diplo, Tom Waits, Rodgers & Hammerstein and others.
