Weekly Roundup: Friday 30th October

Weekly Roundup: Friday 30th October

While today's dismaying referendum results have seriously pissed off Aotearoa's entire music community including myself, there's thankfully still a tonne of great shows to look to look forward to for the months ahead (seriously, check out our gig picks below). This short yet stacked week on the site was all about the interviews. I caught up with psych-fuzz duo Earth Tongue about a tumultuous year and their spring tour of Aotearoa (which heads to Oamaru and Dunedin this weekend), chatted with Pōneke thrashers Stälker about their killer new album Black Majik Terror in advance of next Friday's launch event at Valhalla with End Boss, shot the breeze with Baltimore synth-pop champs Future Islands about their new album As Long As You Are, and had a illuminating online convo with Dean Martelli and Adolf Soeteman of legendary Auckland punk outfit Rebel Truce, playing their first show in forty years (!) as part of this Saturday's Punk 'O' Ween extravaganza.

It being Halloween weekend and all, we felt it'd be a fine idea to touch base with none other than Ōtautahi's Adam Hattaway, whose nationwide tour with The Haunters begins tomorrow at his hometown's Cassels Blue Smoke. Naturally enough, he compiled five of his favourite haunting songs to get you in the spooky mood, get amongst the good stuff right here.
