Intense, on the cusp of falling apart then seamlessly reassembling themselves back together, 1000 Hues blazed a crooked fiery line in the Dunedin night scene like a firefly dancing around a battered light bulb, we are very lucky they were able to sit still long enough for someone to briefly capture them onto tape because they are constantly moving, like shifting luminescent sand. There are rock moments, there are noise moments, there are emotional on the ledge of a large crevice moments. It's all good, exciting stuff!

A new split 7" lathe of 2 very interesting bands revolving around the wholly other Dave Edwards. The eclectic Dave Edwards bends electric/acoustic improvisations to fuel smashing folk blues. Sometimes it's all over the place, other times mysterious & single minded. The single comes with a download code for the Yum compilation. Electricka Zoo is Dave & Darrel Hannon recorded in Upper Hutt, Badger Set is Dave with Chris Prosser, Michael Hall and Julie Bevan recorded in Lower Hutt. A very interesting record.

The Doll has been making hideous solo sounds since 2005 and most recently been playing in Seattle noise improv bands TBA & Punters. Her collective project, Contact Mike, is winding up a 3 month US/NZ guerilla gig tour. Right now she is working on a limited digital release for vaporcake.She also makes comics and collages, takes snaps, curates & produces stuff, and hosts a radio show called OC/DC.
For this release The Doll was messing around with her no-fi toys (3 contact mics, 3 mini amps, Osterizer Galaxie blender, Nokia C101, T-Pain mic, 2 pedals) one afternoon and this happened. A layered love song in two parts, a wishbone heart. Littered with heavy breathing, feedback harmonies, and slatherings of Dr Phibes.
Recorded live at Hummingbird Vista, Seattle, September 2015

Voices, two voices, other voices, meld and weld into songs of murmer. On listening I can hear reflective graceful holographic light beams. The air is substantial and delayed to the sounds of futuristic folk. The sun is creeping into the room and drifting on the drone, showing rainbow coloured specks of dust, they are like tiny hallucinatory planets carried off to oblivion. From Mt Eden Village up there in Auckland, recently doing tours with The Trendees, Pumice and Kraus and other like minded visionaries. A new record @ 45rpm - 7" lathe record ltd 21 copies, nz$15 each email me for postage root don lonie for cash at hotmail dot com.
*On a side note, Peter Kings lathe records are sounding really really excellent. I have been getting Peter to make lathe records for me for over 20 years (!!!) & at the moment, hes on fire! So I am really proud to be making these records for these wonderful bands, & I am still planning some kind of CD or tape(?) compilation featuring all the 7"s so far (21 releases on Heavy Space). Thanks, CN.
