Weekly Round Up: Friday 2nd September

Friday 2nd September, 2016 1:18PM

There wasn't a heck of a lot of tour news this week, but it was definitely quality over quantity with the announcement that PJ Harvey is coming to New Zealand for two shows next year on the heels of releasing her acclaimed album The Hope Six Demolition Project. And Stones Throw fans were hyped to hear that label founder Peanut Butter Wolf has added Wellington and Queenstown stops to his New Zealand visit this month to celebrate the label's birthday.


In release news, we were elated to hear the first official single  from Soft Hair, the musical collaboration between Connan Mockasin and LA Priest's Sam Dust. Wellington trio The All Seeing Hand let loose their buzzy new track 'Swarm', but there's no word of a larger release on the way as yet. And Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have unveiled the first taste of their new album Skeleton Tree which is slated for release next Friday.


This week's Caught Live is a sweaty Tyler The Creator getting the crowd absolutely hyped at Afro Punk Fest in New York...
