New Horizons

Sunday 21 September 2014, with William Dart

Sunday, 21 September 2014

William reviews Kimbra's new album The Golden Echo. Then he takes a quick look at two bands represented on the latest Kiwi Hit Disc: School for Birds and Grand Rapids. And, inspired by an exhibition of works by the Wellington Media Collective at the St Paul Gallery in Auckland, he finishes with a nostalgic look at the back catalogue of Braille Records.
