MOUNTAINEATER

When a new Dunedin three piece made their live debut near the end of 2008, one thing was obvious - for Tristan Dingemans, front man of the formidable Flying Nun band HDU, lightening had struck twice. This was no former glory with backing band situation; this was a band, which was instantly capable of creating its own moments of pure transcendency. In short, Dingemans has an excellent shit filter, and proved he wasn't gonna step out until he had something great. And ladies and gentleman, with Chris Livingston (drums) and Anaru Ngata (bass and guitar), that is Mountaineater.

Few bands manage to take the intangibility of experiencing a natural landscape and transform it into sound, but those that do are absolutely momentous. Yes, with this brooding and heavy mix of sonic landscapes and visceral, bludgeoning rock, you can't ignore the pedigree. Yet Mountaineater is a further step down the path of tension filled catharsis, as immediately inviting as they are unrelenting. This is the next great Dunedin band you've been waiting for. Prepare to have your face melted in September.

LEFT OR RIGHT

Southern band Left Or Right have had a crazy year so far, kicking it off with a mad set at PHAT 11 to bring in the new year. They played 30 shows across New Zealand on their 'Summer Buzz' tour, hitting the University Orientation circuit & performing sell out shows in Auckland & Dunedin. During the bands April/May NZ 'Nuggetour' they were honoured to play headline slots at both 'Feastock 2011' & the inaugural 'Catlins River Festival'.

During the last couple of months, LOR has been on lock down in Invercargill working on pre production for the follow up record to their 2009 debut ‘Nuggety’. More recently the boys have started recording the new material at Albany Street Studios in Dunedin - one of the first bands to crank up the brand new million dollar SSL console. With the release scheduled for 2012, LOR are back on the road doing what they do best – smacking it up live.
