Auckland City Limits – Recap

Auckland City Limits – Recap

The inaugural Auckland City Limits festival managed to fit swaying, jamming, rocking, head-banging and raving all into one day at Western Springs in West Auckland. In typical fashion, the big smoke managed to turn on four seasons in one day, giving festival goers light showers at key intervals in the smouldering hot New Zealand sun. A steady throng of indie rockers, […]

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

Mundo 50: RevueFest II

A year ago when the numerous festivals were announcing their lineups, we were joking around and exchanging names on the artists and bands we would invite if we could curate our own event. This little brainstorming session resulted in us sharing RevueFest, our make-believe, three-day festival. Like what we aimed to do here, the focus was on those hidden gems […]

Highly Suspect – “23” (featuring Sarah Dobson)

Highly Suspect – “23” (featuring Sarah Dobson)

  This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Highly Suspect and it certainly won’t be the last if they continue to make soaring garage-rock/grunge like they have with “23”, which features singer Sasha Dobson. The single builds on Cape Cod, Massachusetts trio’s ’90s-inspired rock, which is anthemic and heart-pounding. A couple of other earlier tracks are provided below. Take a listen to the May 1st […]

Highly Suspect – “Lydia”

Highly Suspect – “Lydia”

“Lydia” is the new single from Brooklyn-via-Massachusetts indie-rock trio Highly Suspect. Similar to Royal Blood, the band mixes blues rock and garage rock to create a cathartic, chest-thumping sound. Their music is intense, gritty, and gnarly, and it must be experienced live. “Lydia“ is the lead single from their forthcoming, debut LP, Mister Asylum. It is also part of our […]
