What have we missed?


Album of the Week: Maggie Rogers – Don’t Forget Me

New Zealand Net Radio plays a song from our irregularly updated #albumoftheweek every hour from 9am to 12pm. Listen in @tunein at http://tun.in/sfAtE or on the web player.

Such a talented lady. Breakout single (“Alaska”) in 2016 then two splendid albums (both past Albums of the Week) Heard It In A Past Life (2019) and Surrender (2022) whilst also knocking out a Masters degree. This is another superb album – great tunes, singing and variety of instrumentation ranging from Indie catnip like “So Sick of Dreaming” to the beautiful bare title track closing the album. But don’t trust us – read the excellent AllMusic review and backgrounder then enjoy the songs!

We’ve been following Maggie Rogers career for a few years, and she’s produced another great body of work. Collaborating with Kid Harpoon (who played a big part in Harry Styles’ latest megahit) she is refocused but still inspired. A very smart lady (she has also knocked out a Harvard Masters in the last couple of years) she has produced what Pitchfork calls an album of “confident pop anthems” – from a point of burnout after years of touring (and study!) she has actually produced a joyful collection.

Album of the Week: Maggie Rogers – Heard It In A Past Life

Maggie Rogers gained exposure a couple of years ago with a viral video of Pharrell Williams raving about a song of hers, “Alaska”. After a record company bidding war she took her sweet time producing her debut album. Here it is, great music still with her folk influences present but more electronic sounds as well. An artist to watch in the future.

New Music Friday: 19th October 2018

Its Friday so its time for five brand new tracks to get their first spin on the hour every hour from 9am. We’ll keep playing these tracks on New Zealand Net Radio, home of streaming radio ad free 24/7 throughout New Zealand.

After a bit of a break Sia reminds us that she’s “Still Here”, great new Kiwi music from Maggie Rogers (a superb track from her promised debut album next January) as well as superb music from Ella Mai, Meg Mac and Jess Glynne ( a great all female lineup this week).

Meg Mac – Give Me My Name Back






Jess Glynne – Thursday
