Weekly Round Up: Friday 16th December

Friday 16th December, 2016 4:01PM

This week in tour news we were stoked to announce that Richmond doom merchants Windhand are returning to New Zealand in March with their labelmates Cough in tow. Psychobilly stalwarts Necromantix announced one Auckland show for mid-January. The Animals revealed two New Zealand dates for May. Canadian indie-rock twins Tegan & Sara lined up their first ever headline appearance on our shores for March. And funk metal outfit Living Colour announced an Auckland show for May.


In release news, Hallelujah Picassos let loose a video for their new single 'Dirty Suits'. Auckland electronic-psych duo Dual shared their awesome new offering 'Kiss' as a follow up to their debut single 'Yellow' that came out a few months ago. D-beat crew Sick Old Man lifted the lid off their five-song EP Tribunus Plebis. Reuben Winter released his debut album under the newly adopted Milk moniker. And from further abroad, we fell in love with the new single 'Changes' from the unlikely pairing of Antonio Williams (aka Antwon) and Deafheaven guitarist Kerry McCoy.


The wonderful Angel Olsen played a handful of shows on New Zealand soil this week (live photos over here), and while on these shores she managed to pop up to the RNZ studios for a wee solo performance. Watch the spine-tingling clip below...
