Nivara Lounge Fundraiser Compilation Launched Feat. The Bats + Spiral Stairs

A.K. / Tuesday 7th April, 2020 12:21PM

Hamilton's Nivara Lounge is one of many beloved Aotearoa venues taking a massive blow from the lockdown, with dozens of shows cancelled and postponed with no certainty in sight. The fast thinkers at Hamilton Underground Press (HUP) got crackin' on a fundraiser compilation to help Ivan Muir and his venue stay afloat, ending up with a massive influx of donated tunes from various acts who've once taken the Nivara Lounge stage. No Sound: A Nivara Lounge Fundraiser has an undeniably cosy feel to it, featuring tracks from Spiral Stairs aka Scott Kannberg (Pavement), Hamilton acts Elider, Sora Shima, Bitter Defeat, Broadcast State and The Scones, plus a song titled 'I Love Nivara Lounge'.

The collection also boasts a couple of new cuts, including an unreleased song from The Bats' Free All The Monsters recordings, and a track called 'Splendid Isolation' from Matthew Bannister's One Man Bannister. Carb On Carb, Repairs, Flogging A Dead One Horse Town, First Move and heaps more contributed to the 25-track fundraiser, a sure sign of the support the Nivara Lounge has from the Aotearoa music community. As HUP wrote "If you have any spare time (ha!) play it from start to finish. It's brilliant, even if we do say so ourselves". Listen, share and donate if you can – No Sound is a winner...

The 'No Sound: A Nivara Lounge Fundraiser' compilation is out now from Hamilton Underground Press.
