Oakland Free-Noise Duo The Blues Announce New Zealand Tour

Tuesday 23rd May, 2017 4:13PM

Supremely un-Googlable Oakland outfit The Blues are heading to New Zealand for a string of shows in June. The duo, which is made up of Marissa Magic (electric guitar, alto sax, drums) and Max Nordile (alto sax, percussion), will be making an appearance at the annual Borderline Festival in Auckland, before making tracks southwards with their friends File Folder for stops in Dunedin and Christchurch - after which they will circling back to Auckland. Though their sound is hard to pin down, we'll leave you with this description from punk blogger Greg Harvester:


"The Blues play something between noise and no wave and free jazz and skronky weird vibes, incorporating only the sounds of guitar and sax. I described it once as 'like the financial district of San Francisco at rush hour' and 'If you played this on a boombox in a crowded subway, someone might beat you up.' I stand by that and I mean it as a compliment."


Here are the tour dates, and head over to their website to get your hands on some of their releases...
