Title-A year of Wednesdays
This is the first album I have had from New Zealand. It’s made by just 2 people John Stevens and Brett Rogerson, I only mention this because the it sounds as though many more are involved. In the main the music is very gentle and relaxing. This is the kind of music you can put on late when you want to chill out. This is what we would call in the 70’s as a concept album as I don’t think any of the tracks on this CD would ever be released as singles. For me this is not a bad thing as most stuff in the charts is shit anyway and this definitely is not. The sound is mainly a mix of acoustic guitars and electronics. These 2 chaps have made an LP for themselves which is reflected by my favourite track "Precious Crush" with the verse of "Not for sale" repeated in it. Another track I enjoyed was the slightly angrier "Momentum".
Summing up this album wont be everybody’s cup of tea, but I enjoyed it a lot and certainly will be playing it again and would not hesitate to listen to other music by this duo.
