December will see neo-soul singer John Legend visit these shores for one show in Auckland. In January, brotherly duo Tonstartssbandht will be taking their psychedelic jams to three main centres around the country. The beautifully strange R'n'B artist How To Dress Well will also be visiting in January for a one-off performance in Auckland. Then in February, Peter Hook and The Light will be reliving the music of New Order and Joy Division for a three-date tour. In March, Neneh Cherry looks set for shows in Wellington and Auckland off the back of her new album Blank Project. And in April the original bubble-gum punks The Dickies will be playing four shows of uproarious tunes around the country. On top of all that, the line-up for Womad 2015 was revealed, and will be headlined by the enduring Sinead O'Connor who will be joined by 28 other amazing acts from New Zealand and abroad, head over here for more details.


In release news, Auckland fuzz-pop trio Haawaaiii have shared swirling cut 'Dream Daze Hello', as a sneak peek to their forthcoming album out next year. The Phoenix Foundation frontman Samuel Flynn Scott unveiled the second single from his new musical venture Bunnies On Ponies. The Wellington three-piece helmed by Scott are preparing to release their debut album with a crowdfunding project underway to get it pressed to vinyl. Dudley Benson is poised to unveil remix album Deforestation, which reimagines tracks from his 2010 album Forest with all profits going to a South Island bird sanctuary. Auckland act New Gum Sarn (previously Small Boys) shared a frolicking clip for 'Bad Soy', a sample for their album due out sometime soon. Kerosene Comic Book affiliate Totems let loose his track 'Kuri', which is from an new EP due out this month. Looking overseas, Panda Bear has announced a forthcoming album titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, due out in the new year via Domino. And Damon Albarn reckons there might be a new Gorillaz record coming for 2016.

Why? Why have a pic of Tv on the radio when they are not playing in New Zealand. You have a whole webite to talk about them not in the gig guide.
