SETH FRIGHTENING LIVE ON RNZ + ‘BWLOBAS’ REVIEWED

April 12th, 2015

Seth Frightening on RNZ

Seth Frightening, aka Sean Kelly, played a few live tracks from his new album, But We Love Our Brothers and Sisters, and spoke with Radio New Zealand Music 101’s Zac Arnold last weekend.

Check out the great live recordings and an interview covering the usual topics: blood, death, chaos, the saviouristic properties of the acoustic guitar and the coolness of kindness, etc: www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/nat-music/audio/20173477/seth-frightening-in-session

Click here to stream & download the album which has received some glowing reviews such as this one on Vanguard Red Magazine: “…positively overflowing with beautifully surreal and exploratory New Weird New Zealand folk rock compositions. With his guitar playing, vocal delivery and overall arrangements, Seth has that “it” quality that only matters because we hear it so rarely.”

PAPERGHOST - BADSPIRIT:

Paperghost
Drawing by Zach Webber

“With his forthcoming new album, Signal Fingers, Wellington composer, producer, and sound designer Paperghost (real name: Zach Webber) concocts a cycle of densely layered songs born from intricate stories and environments. Surreal and architectural, his music mixes imagination with reality, fictions and personal experiences so blurred you can’t quite tell one from the other.”

Read more and stream the track, BADSPIRIT here > www.theaudience.co.nz/news/martyn-pepperell-introduces-paperghost/

The full Signal Fingers album will be available for download here on Wednesday!


WOMB - AIRPLANE:

Womb

Charlotte Forrester (previously of Athuzela Brown) also shared a new track, Airplane, from her forthcoming EP:

‘Describing her music process as ritualistic, Charlotte has found she writes best within a sacred space and the correct accompanying headspace. “I feel it is necessary to return to the emotional landscapes the songs were written in, so that the recordings will harness the nature of the song I’ve written,” she explains.’
