SCR022 - I.Ryoko - Rarities (2007 - 2011)
A collection of seven unrelated tracks. At long last i had to get these out of the way to make way for some new music!
Interview on Under the Radar:
“I.Ryoko is the solo project of Wellington musical busybody Thomas Lambert, who also runs cult independent label Sonorous Circle. With a couple of releases on the way, including Rarities (2007-2011) out now, we finally pinned Thomas down for a chat about the project, what inspires him and what’s going on in the Wellington music scene at the moment…”

Carols for Convicts is Minnelli’s third album, reflecting countless hours of meticulous bedroom tinkering by the prolific musical hermit, Caleb McKenzie. Once again he melds layers of live, sampled and programmed elements in the classic Minnelli style - this time a little more lively with tight, playful rhythms and melody aplenty.
(Emotionally invested mechanics, video game pop features, galactic navigation and internal exploration, mystic circus, digitised snake movements, sheets of fluid, piñata of blue stars, angry rock faces, alternative beats for rappers of all levels, 80s shades, cake discussion and courier mishaps.)

Today we officially welcome two new faces to Sonorous Circle! Haz and Charlotte Forrester, collectively known as Athuzela Brown, from Wellington, NZ. We are highly stoked to have such fine examples of the human race amongst us! And of course they bring musical goodies for all…
With this their debut album, the saintly young Forrester twins glide effortlessly to the heart. True to spirit, honest-to-goodness, genuine folk! Like two halves of a horizon the pair have assumed their natural balance; Haz like the understated ground and Charlotte with her voice like the sky; softly soaring yet on the verge of crushing. Tides is a beautiful example of ‘dream folk’, rich in imagery and full of promise; concise arrangements of voice and strings with delicate electronic adornments captured in charming lo-fi home recordings.
32 minutes: 9 original tracks + a bonus Devendra Banhart cover.
ENJOY! Release show Saturday 23rd June, 7.30PM at 19 Tory St, Wellington.
Young dream-folk wonders, Athuzela Brown, release their beautiful debut album this Monday 11th June! In the mean time, check out / download their excellent 2011 EP for free here…
