Weekly Round Up: Friday 15th July

Friday 15th July, 2016 4:41PM

In tour news this week, we were delighted to discovered that Lisa Carver's noise-punk act Suckdog is coming to New Zealand for two shows next month. Los Angeles rapper Schoolboy Q announced he will be returning for one date off the back of releasing Blank Face LP. Aussie-based alt group Plastic will be here for three performances in early August. In local tour news, Shayne P Carter and band have lined up four dates to celebrate his forthcoming album Offsider. Alt-folk artist Steve Abel also announced a trio of shows to support his upcoming record Luck/Hope. And Auckland musician Dave Weir has got two shows up his sleeve for mid-August to mark the release of his debut solo EP.


In local release news, Wellington multi-instrumentalist Vera Ellen has shared her gorgeous new piano-driven song '21'. Trust Punks gave us another taster of their upcoming record Double Bind. Auckland five-piece collective Leisure let loose their smooth new single 'Control Myself'. And we were stoked to stumble on an awesome doo-wop esque punk track from CUTSS. Further abroad, Banks lifted the lid on her impressive new single 'Fuck With Myself'. And Thee Oh Sees shared a new single 'The Axis' which has been on high rotate around the UTR office.


This week's Caught Live is Auckland artist Herriot Row delivering a wonderful rendition of his song 'Please Elvis' at The Spare Room while being recorded by Jeremy Toy....
