The UTR editorial team has been on the road for the past couple of days, requiring our regular Friday release roundup to be bumped back to a special Sunday end of week edition (no more tricky attempts to type in the back seat of a Suzuki). We've got some big new projects under out hat to announce very soon, in the meantime check out our past seven days' coverage of Proteins of Magic, Jen CloherSoaked Oats, 10:32, Leonard Charles featuring A.C. Freazy and Brandn Shiraz featuring Diggy Dupé, plus more crucial recent Aotearoa releases below — including The Veils, Neill Duncan with Devils Gate Outfit, French For Rabbits x Yvois, haast, A bLUNT jESTER, bilderine, Yumi Zouma, TV2 x Skaggs Telecommunication Services and Hairy Palm.

Devonport's Finn Andrews shared the first new studio long player in seven years from his globally acclaimed project The Veils, fifteen track double album …And Out Of The Void Came Love — featuring composer Victoria Kelly (contributing string arrangements), instrumentalists Cass Basil, Dan Raishbrook, Liam Gerrard, Joseph McCallum, the NZTrio, and Smoke Fairies on backing vocals (vinyl orders via the Bandcamp link).

A hot contender for the title of Tāmaki Makaurau's very own Harold Faltermeyer, production maestro A bLUNT jESTER expands your earholes with six all-killer tracks of booty-shaking, cinematic bangers on Spectrum.

Tāmaki's Kiwijahzz imprint unveiled an album by the legendary Neill Duncan (March 9, 1957 - December 28, 2021) with Devils Gate Outfit — the staggeringly talented collective of Steve Roche, Daniel Beban, Cory Champion, Anthony Donaldson, Tom Callwood and David Donaldson — Duncan's last recording in Aotearoa (vinyl orders via the Bandcamp link). "A founding member of the Braille Collective, Neill first came to prominence in the 1980’s with the pioneering Wellington exploratory jazz ensemble ‘Primitive Art Group’ which remains hugely influential to subsequent generations of adventurous musicians in Aotearoa."

Ōtautahi soundscape artist haast's new album hāwea should be a Gorpcore enthusiast's delight — treating listeners to a meditative, mellow-minded sonic hiking trip "around Te Waipounamu / South Island of New Zealand".

Te Whanganui-a-Tara signalwave artist TV2 reemerges with a​​​l​​​l y​​​o​​​u n​​​e​​​e​​​d is an a​​​n​​​t​​​e​​​n​​​n​​​a — an aurally evocative and immersive new collaboration with Skaggs Telecommunication Services.

Aotearoa-born, Berlin-based producer Yvois remixed 'The Outsider' from French For Rabbits' latest album The Overflow.

Originally only out via vinyl subscription service, Yumi Zouma unveiled four songs from their newly accessible Oasis tribute record (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (new yellow vinyl edition already sold out).

A stone cold Aotearoa classic, bilderine's 1984 album Split Seconds still amazes. Hit play on Velvets-y lead single 'Retail Trade' from the forthcoming new vinyl LP edition out on 14th April (vinyl orders via the Bandcamp link).

HAIRY PALM VOL​.​4 - MISERY GUTS has you sorted for the most aggressive, ultra-heavy sounds emanating from Aotearoa's underground (or anywhere else) — "NINE TRACKS SHOWCASING THE UNDERBELLY OF THIS WHALE CARCASS I’VE CALLED HOME FOR SO LONG". Cop a cassette to treasure forever via the Bandcamp link.
