Album of the Week: Mel Parsons – Sabotage

Kiwi artist Mel Parsons is back with a stunningly beautiful collection of folk rock tracks on her sixth album. Radio New Zealand evokes well the sadness in this album in their review, but that said this isn’t a morose album. As Rolling Stone say this is a “tight, fat-free collection of her trademark alt-country and indie folk, featuring some of her best songwriting to date”.

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

Tracks of the Year

Whew, we made it through. As mentioned earlier it was devilishly hard choosing these Top 40 tracks of the year. We tried to pick ones that have had longevity and that we think will stick around for years to come. We limited ourselves generally to one track per artist – many of these had more than one deserving song. Here is the playlist – from 40 down to Maroon 5 at No. 1.
