I have been spending time travelling recently, back and forth between Tāmaki Makaurau and Kirikiriroa. There is a new motorway that makes the trip pleasant as long as you avoid traffic. Here is a mix inspired by all that time on the road.
PS the video is of a different road.
Last year I saw the wonderful Purple Pilgrims playing with Gary War. They sounded ethereal, heavenly creatures from another world (actually Christchurch via Hong Kong ). Gary War in contrast was messy, harsh electronica. They share an EP (see above pic). After the gig I started this mix.
Purple Pilgrims played last week at St Kevin’s Arcade here in Auckland as part of the May day celebration. Again a real treat and I was inspired to finish this mix.
Great gigs and those willing to spend $8 can see them back in Auckland this coming weekend playing with Avoid!Avoid at the Whammy Backbar. See you there. (click on the image below for ticket info)
I like this band’s
Josef K vibe. Looking for a live vid. In the meantime, this …
Again I can’t find a copy of this song played live so instead…

Big fan. She has recently left her country roots and has gone grungy.
No vid so …
Buy them here
