DJ NDHA - The fresh and the weatheredOctober 23rd, 2012
We also like to make sure we're filling in the gaps by going back and picking up music from before 2006, when Legal Deposit for music came into play.
In the last month we've done a bit of both, so here's a taste of what's been added - some are freshly minted and others a bit more weathered.
And remember! You can get in touch if you've been making music you'd like the Turnbull to keep safe forever.
Coolies 7 Inch / The Coolies (1999)
This is an early recording from lo-fi cult punk girl band The Coolies. This raw recording laid the groundwork for a constantly evolving band that has managed to stay firmly rooted in the nihilistic dance punk scene inspired by bands like Bikini Kill, who pioneered the riot grrrl movement in the 90s. Later releases include 2008's Bless the babies and mothers and 2011's Master .
Out of the Rain / Fredericks Brown (2011)
New York-based NZ Trio Steph Brown (keys), Deva Mahal (vocals) and Michael Taylor (trumpet/guitar) came together in 2009 to write and record material of their own, eventually releasing their debut EP Out of the rain in 2011.
The EP includes 5 tracks of soul and funk laced with hip hop grooves and a hint of jazz sensibility. They are currently signed to Munich based label Jazz & Milk, with whom they have released Land of Plenty , a remix album.
God Eat God / Terrorball (Grappa Frisbee Records, 2012)
Terrorball is the alias of Hamilton electro musician Gareth Pemberton. This is his third release on New Haven-based label Grappa Frisbee. It’s an intense 11 tracks of upbeat synthpop weaving through layers of lush synths, pounding drums, and ever-so-slightly campy samples. He has also recently released a fourth album, You punks, which we will be archiving soon!
Avenged Sevenfold - Welcome to the Family (Remix) / Freq Nasty (2012)
Darin McFadyen, aka FreQ Nasty, is an expat NZ DJ and producer of breakbeat electronica based in LA, California. FreQ’s traversed the globe as a DJ, first as a resident in London's Fabric Nightclub then on multiple tours of Europe and Australia. This remix is a bit of a departure from his norm - a drumstep re-dub of the original metal tune from Avenged Sevenfold which works surprisingly well.
