Epic music for an epic trip, what did we treat our ears to while sailing New Zealand?

 

Sailing into the wild, vast and occasionally unknown is an epic adventure, and New Zealand was absolutely no exception. Her rugged coastline, unforgiving natural terrain and breath taking views have inspired many a soul and left memories burnt into the minds eye of anyone lucky enough to find themselves amid this wonderful expanse of country.

With great adventure comes great stories, and we’re lucky enough in this day and age to be able to synchronise our story to the music of some of most unique and soulful musicians the world has to offer. What a time to be alive friends!

“Music is the soundtrack to our lives” – Dick Clarke

Have a wonderful week.

 

HEEBLAY – https://heeblay.bandcamp.com/

Producing an eclectic, calming and enchanting soundscape, Gold Coast local Heeblay succeeds in delivering a layered texture of sounds backed by a haunting yet soothing vocal, the low key chanting of words resonates amidst a cluster of stringed, wind and percussive instruments the likes of which would be difficult to pronounce let alone play. Heeblay says on his Facebook page, (https://www.facebook.com/heeblay/)

“Hey, I have no Label or A & R people or media packages or publicist or anything like that, I just make this music.
So, if you like it, then “like” it”

You heard the man!

Evntho – https://evntho.bandcamp.com/

Low-fi Indie ‘writer of song’ Evntho is characterised by his nonchalant delivery of musicianship. Bridging from the strumming of guitar and simple story telling to distorted vocal, discotheque sounds, organs and keys, this is someone who writes as they feel, and it feels a lot like the hectic cityscape of where he lives, Tokyo, Japan.

 

 

 

Peasant Moon – https://soundcloud.com/peasantmoonsongs

Story teller Harvey Russell and long time collaborator Josie Rothwell blend together seamlessly to create their own unique brand of Folk-Americana. The Sydney-siders began collaborating in 2013 and only two years later had released their debut EP ‘Fading In The Light’, a heart-filled introspection reflecting on unanswered questions, Harvey’s calls occupy empty spaces and give relatable content as Josie harmonises gently while giving the sound a deliciously dense as cheesecake texture. Best listened to by moonlight as it is almost exclusively played.

Fernando Ferronato –  https://ftferronato.bandcamp.com/

Classical guitarist Fernando Ferronato is a Brazilian musician and composer with the ability to manifest pensive moods through the sounds he creates on his instrument. He began playing at the age of twelve when his Godmother gifted him with his first guitar, since then he has honed his skills to a craft mirroring landscapes and the forces of nature. Often laced with a sense of urgency, seldom a gasp of air between the shower of notes and tones, the listener is kidnapped and hypnotised into a state of reflection.

  1. I love your show and the music on the youtube vids is always great. I am sending a recommendation to listen to an American band i believe you will both love. The are called The Mother Hips and are one of my favorites. http://www.motherhips.com/home/
    They have some youtube vids as well and you can find them on Spotify or Pandora.
    I always have wondered if you guys get any streaming or do you use all CD’s and pre recorded music from your computers>?
    The youtube stuff keeps me going…we have feet of snow here in Sun Valley Idaho.
    Cheers
