Autumn is beginning to settle in, but it feels like our local release schedule is just heating up. Revisit this week's coverage of MOKOTRON, Delaney Davidson, Family Band, Guilt Grip and Japes, then scroll down for more fresh Aotearoa music highlights from Jim Nothing, P.H.F, David Dallas, Ulcerate, Awning, games, Club Tremaine, SNOUTS! and Edward Gains.

Recorded during Easter last year, 95bFM Greening Out host Jim Nothing ponders our modern day long weekend rituals with their delectably catchy, delightfully zoned autumn strummer 'Easter at the RSC' — co-mixed by by Melted Ice Cream chief Brian Feary (Wurld Series).

The rise of P.H.F from local underground talent to international streaming star warms my otherwise frozen heart. Currently touring the US, the Tāmaki Makaurau artist dropped new audio-visual meisterwerk 'A GIRL WITH SHIT ON HER MIND' — note the content warning: strobing imagery.

Aotearoa hip hop star David Dallas rocketed back into the spotlight, name-dropping iconic celebrity chef, author, and travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain (who passed in 2018) on his hook-packed latest cut, produced by 41.

One of Aotearoa's most widely respected extreme metal groups, Ulcerate return with scorched earth new single 'The Dawn is Hollow' from their forthcoming seventh album Cutting the Throat of God — out in full on 14th June.

Tāmaki Makaurau-based songwriter, sound artist and painter Christian Dimick (Recitals, Avant-Glass) unveiled a resplendent fuzz-textured three track release from his latest group Awning, also featuring Eli Superflyy, Baxter Perry and Riley Noonan.

Aotearoa-affiliated electronic innovators Jorge Camacho (VASE) and Lawrence Goodwin (Black Snake Whip, Career Girls, The Tarts) combined powers as games on their debut album Great Illusions via Glasgow's INDEX:records. "A soundtrack to imploding stars and black hole soup, distilled into compositions that seep into the subconscious through carefully harnessed sonic entropy." You can score a special edition individualised acid etched stainless steel games business card if you move fast.

It seems like everyone who went along to this year's Camp A Low Hum festival in Wainuiomata came back feeling energised and inspired. Te Papaioea electronic artist Club Tremaine mainlines that energy into two playful, speaker slamming dance cuts / edits on their Turbo Tunes 3 (camp edition) EP. "Couple of cheeky 160 edits from Club Tremaine's Camp A Low Hum 2024 debut".

Through dedicated Bandcamp sleuthing we uncovered the sizzling new self-titled five tracker from Aotearoa's SNOUTS! — the free jazz noisenik trio of Honkie Snout, Hitty Snout and Twiddly Snout — recorded at The Wine Sty in Porkland (sounds legit), out now via iiii Records.

Tauranga-based veteran of the catchy hook and resonant lyric, Edward Gains strides confidently into all-instrumental, Gary Numan adjacent motorik synth-rock territory on new four track release HOW TO SAY NOTHING.
