"Brilliant album and a great addition to any vinyl collection"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Not since 1884, when proud Kiwi William Atack became the first referree in the world to use a whistle, has New Zealand offered such a great contribution to the international community.

This album is a truly unique collusion between rap and jazz. It's lengthy songs and catchy hooks allow for great replayability. As a record, it has great packaging (very interesting art and enclosures) and the pressing itself seems to be high quality (but I won't pretend I am an audiophile).

Buy this record. It won't disappoint and it supports an up and coming band (and rapper).

Description

The album is a fusion of jazz and hip hop, featuring some of the best musicians in New Zealand – Jonathan Crayford, Julien Dyne, Ladi6, Mara TK, Esther Stephens, Teeks and many more.

Some words from Tom on the new album:
This record is about…growing up. I think. It's about dealing with your own stuff for once. Accepting responsibility, maybe. It's a self help book addressed to myself. And just like every other piece of art ever made in history of the hominid, I was going through some shit when I was making it. I'd just left home and everyone I knew, looking to chase a dream. It was an awkward phase, like stage two puberty. I was learning how to be grown. Humility had my pride in a headlock. I was the old man at the art exhibition, the young boy at the art gallery. Everyone was in a K-hole, I was at K-Mart.

A video – filmed entirely inside the crumbling shell of Auckland's beloved St James Theatre – is out on Friday.
