listen to a couple of insanely infectious tracks from BOYBOY

None of Your Love - Single

We don't know much about the elusive and mysterious new artist BOYBOY -- who is probably Los Angeles-via-New Zealand artist Sam McCarthy -- other than the fact that he has quietly dropped two of the most effervescent and infectious jams of the year, and that people are sleeping...

premiere: Yumi Zouma announce debut LP Yoncalla + share lead single “Keep It Close To Me”

Yumi Zouma - Yoncalla

New Zealand's Yumi Zouma is the rare band that became one of our favorites on the strength of one perfect song: the timeless, swaying, instant soft-disco classic "The Brae", which we fell in love with upon first listen back in early 2014...

Sam of Yumi Zouma shares new song as Zen Mantra

ZEN MANTRA

Sam Perry of Yumi Zouma shares the warped and woozy first single from his solo psych-pop project Zen Mantra: “Second Skin” elicits an eerie nostalgia and the inescapable tinge of vague melancholy that tends to go along with that, but there’s a brightness that comes from Perry’s pop sensibility shining through the song's dark undertones. Sam says of the new record:

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Shocking Pinks

SHOCKING PINKS

THANK YOU FOR HAVING US GvsB! Lastly we need to post this song. The Shocking Pinks are from Christchurch like us, and are maybe one of the most underrated bands from New Zealand in our opinion. We hate it when people say that things are underrated, but we really think that Nick Harte's song writing (especially in this time period) is something so special...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Bird Nest Roys

BIRD NEST ROYS

I've been lucky enough to work with Flying Nun the last 3 years re-issuing a lot of their back catalog. I'm the first to admit that I'm not so well versed with the obscure parts of the catalog. Bird Nest Roys' 'Me Want Me Need Me Get' is a great compilation we did of the band's early works...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: The Skeptics

SKEPTICS

I watched the documentary "Sheen of Gold" for the second time at a mate's place the other day and've been on a bit of a Skeptics bender ever since. I believe this song was released a couple years after their singer died and the band had subsequently broke up...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Secret Knives

SECRET KNIVES

Secret Knives is Ash Smith from Wellington, who also plays bass in Over The Atlantic and is touring with the Shocking Pinks right now. His album "Affection" is a MUST-download from Bandcamp, and his bi-annual live shows are insane if you can ever catch one...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Wet Wings

WET WINGS FEEEEL IT

Wet Wings were a great band from Christchurch. Lucy and Darian created a really special world in their music, there really wasn't anything like it in New Zealand at the time. It was actually the first time I heard about Gorilla Vs Bear, when Chris posted about their first EP 'Skin To Soil' in 2010...
