In a masterpiece of musicianly co-ordination, Pōneke jangle / surf / fuzz-pop sextet Tidal Rave have rallied the troops for a six date album release tour, celebrating the forthcoming launch of their snazzily titled Albumette via Fishrider Records. Recorded by Lee Prebble and Andrew Downes at Newtown's fabled Surgery, the eight song Albumette was primarily written during the seemingly never-ending 2020 lockdown era, exploring such pertinent topics as "police incompetence, problematic capitalism, disconnection and in-between spaces." They'll be joined by buds including Lizard Prom, Cootie CutiesTerror of the Deep, Bird Feeder, Solo Ono (featuring Tidal Rave's Frank Eggleton) and the intriguingly named Yer Maw’s 5g Meatsuit — here's the full lowdown...
