Its #nzmusicmonth and we’ve got another new Kiwi addition. Cassie Henderson competed in the first season of The X Factor: New Zealand back in 2013. Now 21 she has just released her first single, Tainted. We like it!
More fantastic new Kiwi music from Robinson!
Stan Walker’s great new track “Give”.
First release from a forthcoming EP (Apart due June 1) this song by Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johanssen is simply phenomenal. We know its Sunday morning tomorrow but can’t wait to give it a spin – is just after 9am a respectable hour? It is now … listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N for “Bad Dreams”.
More info about the project here.
B0nesmFascinating to hear Prince’s original studio recording of Nothing Compares 2 U (of course a huge hit for Sinead O’Connor a few years later). Its just been released by his estate. We’ll give it a spin after 4 – listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N
There’s lots of great music around but this is one of those rare records that stands out from the throng. So many influences, great songs and Leon Bridges has a phenomenal voice. This is another preview off his forthcoming album Good Thing – looking forward to May 4th.
Another #justadded track from Sydney trio Middle Kids, this follows on from Mistake in a lead up to their anticipated debut album Lost Friends. Great tune – coming up after 8am for its debut spin. Listen on @tunein https://goo.gl/VL6m3N
#justadded Yes not content with our #newmusicfriday additions we’ve just added a great new track from Hayley Kiyoko (@hayleykiyoko) called Curious. It’s off her brand new debut album Expectations. The former Disney star has put together some great pop tunes which can be enjoyed on their own merits. Pitchfork even gave it 6/10!!
It also gets our Album Cover of the month award:-)
Very excited about this new Kiwi single, exceptional stuff off Kings’ (@Kingsmusicnz) second album, coming sometime soon. First spin this hour!!!
If you’d asked me last week whether I’d be adding a brand new Hall & Oates number to our playlist I’d have said – ah, yes please but REALLY? Yes its happened, the first new song from Daryl Hall & John Oates (@halloates) in 14 years, released in time for a major 40 date North American tour with Train. This is actually a pretty neat number, a tribute to hometown Philadelphia, and even features a little tribute to one of their classic numbers. Listen in tomorrow morning after 7 for our first spin of this number.
