Friday 15th October, 2010 8:54AM

Attention potential CMJ attendees, and general music freeloaders, amongst the many bands playing around NY in the coming weeks will be a small contingent of NZ acts. To celebrate our presence at CMJ and hopefully introduce some attendees to these bands we have put together a three track sampler from bands we recommend seeing which you can download below - it includes...

1995 – “Foreign Soil”

A brand new, and appropriately titled, track from Auckland based 1995 off their forthcoming debut album due out early next year - catch them at the following shows:

Saturday 16th Oct – Texas Firehouse, Long Island
Monday 18th Oct – Delancey Lounge
Friday 22nd Oct - CMJ Showcase – Lit Lounge

Street Chant – “Scream Walk”

A nice face paced number off the debut album from local favourites Street Chant, who have built and impressive reputation for their live show over the years, enough so for Jack White to request them specifically to tour with The Dead Weather in NZ and Australia earlier this year. 

Tuesday 19 October - NZ Showcase(Le) Poisson Rouge (6.35pm)
Wednesday 20th Oct - WNYU Radio session (1pm)
Friday 22nd Oct - Microphone Memory Emotion x Rose Quartz Present, 20 Meadow Street, Brooklyn (9pm )

Thursday 28th Oct - Pianos (8pm)
Saturday 30th Oct - Ground Zero Basement - RPI Campus, Troy (8pm)

Family Cactus – “Kingmaker”

An excellent example of the talented bunch that make up Wellington’s Family Cactus – Kingmaker features on their debut album Come Howling released last year. 

Saturday 23rd Oct - CMJ Official Showcase - 23rd October The Living Room (8.30pm)

Also worth checking out is Lawrence Arabia who we couldn’t track down to include in the download but is playing the following shows:

Tuesday 19 October - NZ Showcase(Le) Poisson Rouge (6pm)
Thursday 21st October – The Bowery Electric (11pm)

We'll update this post with more shows from these acts as they are confirmed.
