New music with Grant Smithies

From Nine To Noon, 11:07 am on 7 August 2015

Grant Smithies gets a lungful of Wellington "stoner country" band So Laid Back Country China, adds a "lysergic soul" chaser courtesy of Perth's deeply trippy Tame Impala, then hits the dancefloor and dances like a teenager to Swedish pop sensation, Robyn. So Laid Back Country China With Knees of Honey in Goodbye Canyon "The second album from this self-described "stoner country" band from Wellington, and a lovely atmospheric thing it is, too, even for a drug-avoidant tee-totaller like myself…" Tame Impala, Currents "The third album from Kevin Parker's Aussie psych-rock "one man band" band, Tame Impala, and not nearly as "psych rock" as the last two albums, Innerspeaker (2010) and Lonerism (2012). A serious grower of a record." Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique Love Is Free E.P. "A collabrorative EP/ mini-album between Swedish pop poppet Robyn Carlsson, her long-time keyboardist Markus Jagerstedt and the late, great Swedish producer Christan Falk, who died last year. Released today."
