08|05|08   Undertheradar.co.nz give away three copies of our Acoustic EP

One of New Zealand’s raddest online zines has three copies of our Acoustic EP to giveaway – enter here.

Speaking of Undertheradar and sweet give-aways, if you haven’t already downloaded last year’s It’s A Sonic Summer compilation, then be sure to grab a copy before the myst of the wired swallows it whole. Aside from our song Scattering The Sun Like Gunshot, the compilation also includes fantastic tracks by Disasteradio, The L.E.D.s, Collapsing Cities, Cue The Sun, White On White, and Sora Shima.

I’m sorry I’ve been a bit slow on writing up new blog posts. Essentially, I’ve been really busy with the following:

06|18|08   Kiwi FM album of the week

During these past months I’ve been trapped in this horrid cycle of falling asleep around five in morning and sleeping well into the afternoon. Every night (or morning) I would set my cell phone alarm for a reasonable hour and tell myself that tomorrow would be the day that I would manage to wrestle myself out of bed at a decent hour. However, the bloody alarm was so abrasive, I always ended up turning it off and going back to sleep just to recover from the shock of it all. A futile attempt at resetting my internal clock.

06|08|08   Cat and Bird Split 7″

The Cat and Bird 7″ is a very limited edition split between us and the late Break Mission Kills. This collaboration, however, is more of a marriage than a split, with each of our band’s derelict post-pop aesthetic supporting the other’s. The entire run is limited to 100 copies, though the record (and bonus tracks) can be downloaded for free at www.catandbird.info.

06|02|08   Tour Diary: Day 3 – Invercargill

Despite having stayed up all night playing guitar hero, we got up nice and early. Firstly, we needed to make our way down to Invercargill by late afternoon. Invercargill lies at the southern tip of New Zealand, so we easily had a good four hour drive ahead of us. Secondly, Luci and DJ were really keen to take us to Dunedin’s local farmer’s market in order to introduce us to “bacon buddies”, a specialty of one of the market’s local vendors.

05|25|08   Tour Diary: Day 2 – Dunedin


[Photo by Roger Grauwmeijer. View entire set.]

All of us actually woke up quite early in Oamaru. We didn’t have far to drive to Dunedin, but this was the first morning where we had actually risen from our sleep being “on tour”. I felt energized and wide-eyed. The day before I arose in the same old bed that I’ve slept in for most of the last few years: a small room, dark, barren, rather unpleasant really. But this morning I was already living an adventure, and I was grateful not be at home. I felt like taking deep breaths slowly; I was glad that it was a bit brisk; I felt freer than usual.
