19 jan. 2010, 22h52m par doubtfulsoundsAnother year, another shitload of great albums. As soon as you start thinking it is feeling like a quiet year they come tumbling out of the woodwork and the end of year culling process is as tricky as ever.
Honorable mentions must go to two outstanding EPs: Bon Iver’s Blood Bank and Witch Hats’ Solarium Down The Causeway as well as the following reissues:
* Neil Young Archives – a stellar collection that sets a new standard in box sets and career overviews… and its just the beginning of the series!
* Kraftwerk Remaster series – the electronic pioneers were overdue for a reappraisal and these new versions of their classic albums prove they were the electronic originators and still the masters.
* The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses. A clean-up of an album that defined its time.
* Pearl Jam – Ten. A worthy replacement for the muddy and billowing sound of the original.
* The Beatles Remaster series – A chance to hear the songs in a totally new light.
17 jan. 2010, 13h05m par jdub_dubOn Friday 15 Jan I attended Big Day Out 2010 in Auckland.
This is only my second BDO ever, and this time I went armed with knowledge from my last one:
- Food lines are terrible, so this time I brought along my own lunch and dinner. This saved at least an hour of my day.
- Toilet lines are average, but usually there is one part of the stadium which is under-utilized (this time, it was the ones under the east stand).
- If there is a huge line for one service somewhere else, it's likely there isn't somewhere else.
- By default, I was very likely to stay seated in the same place for at least the last two sets of the night. I forced myself into the crowd instead this year.
The day overall went really well. The whole day progressed very smoothly, there were no big gaps of boring nobody artists, nor extreme peaks of amazingness. The weather was beautiful all day, although a little too hot and humid for some of it. I saw far too many bands - 28!!! - so this review is going to be huge.

15 mars 2009, 11h25m par jdub_dubLast night was Homegrown 09 in Wellington, and it was a really wicked day! Not as good as Homegrown 08 but still freaking cool.
Bang! Bang! Eche! - really awesome! so much fun, awesome dance pop stuff. with heaps of energy and the band members swap around on instruments a lot :)
Fur Patrol - Julia is so gorgeous and the music was mesmerising and exactly as I imagined it. difficult to dance to but amazing, I would LOVE to see them again.
Tim Phin - a DJ.
Sunshine Sound System - MC's rapping over existing songs.
The Checks - cool, remind me very much of The Strokes.
Dimmer - awesome. the crowd wasn't very big and was mostly adults, but still had a really good time. the songs were epic long jam pieces. I think Dimmer is enhanced a lot by drugs and/or alcohol -- pity I was sober lol.
KORA - holy crap, this went off like crazy! the entire tent was PACKED and I could barely see them. I prefered them in the rock stage in 08 but everybody here knew every song so well :) we bailed pretty early…

26 mai 2008, 18h10m par jessthereseI borrowed this from this user.. thanks! Instead of using my overall top 50, I used my rolling 3 month chart top 50, and had lots of ties so there's a little poetic licence employed.
1. How did you get into 29?
I remember seeing my sister's copy of Green on vinyl, Man on the Moon, and later on Losing My Religion was a favourite amongst my friends. Monster was the first album I owned, and I loved New Adventures in Hi-Fi - still do. I just bought Accelerate.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Cansei de Ser Sexy
Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above - their first single released in NZ.
3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?
I don't know - for me Muse is more about the epic drama expressed through the music, than anything in particular in the lyrics.
4. What is your favorite album by 49?
Since I only have one - The Greatest.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
