Sophie Burberry/ Little Bark double album “Hope is Rubbery” – free or name your price

Sophie Burbery is a Wellington based performer who also performs under the name Little Bark, her alter ego. She’s allowing you to pay what you like for her awesome double album “Hope is Rubbery” (an anagram of Sophie Burbery – neat). The Sophie Burbery stuff is ambient sorta Animal Collective type stuff, while the Little Bark stuff is a more electro clash, party kinda vibe. Both are great and you should get them. The cover artwork is also great – it’s by talented Wellington artist Mica Still. Sopie Burbery disc: Little Bark disc: Tweet

10 Great Albums From The Last Decade That You May Have Missed

An article I wrote a few months ago for MusicHype. I’d been thinking about all these great albums I had that never really took off, for whatever reason.

My Chemical Romance – “Danger Days: The Lives of The Faboulous Killjoys”

Review I wrote for MusicHype this week, on the new My Chemical Romance album. It’s pretty decent but not great. “Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was always going to struggle in the heavy shadow cast by its predecessor, 2006s The Black Parade. The latter was a genre defining behemoth of a rock album: capturing the zeitgeist and proving to anyone that would listen that there was more to this whole “emo” thing than shit haircuts and whiney teenagers. This should’ve been obvious to most hardcore music fans already, because to be honest if you were getting your ideas about music from tabloids and television sitcoms, then you should really get out more.” Read the full review here.
