Peaches at the Powerstation

Posted by: Kitten Power

Peaches, The Powerstation, Auckland, September 24

There is only one word that can aptly describe a Peaches show.  Hot.  The woman just oozes sex. 
The first lady of bisexuality, born in Canada with the unlikely name Merrill Nisker, started the show by demanding complete darkness.  When the lights hit she was revealed balancing on the drumkit wearing what looked like a giant pink puffy pumpkin […]

Posted by: Kitten Power

Posted by: Kitten Power

Late last week Bloc Party released their new LP Intimacy online, after keeping the recording a secret (apparently only 10 people knew about the plan).  They announced its web release just three days before it was available. 
I’ve finally had a chance to download and listen - and I love it.  It continues down the slightly experimental electronica […]

Sigur Ros - happier, but no less beautiful

Posted by: Kitten Power

Sigur Ros: Med sud I eyrum vid spilum endalaust (With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly)
When I listen to previous Sigur Ros albums I feel I’m gently submerging deeper and deeper underwater.  This new album is more like a flying trip up to the clouds, then a slow drift back down again.
Med sud […]

The best album of the year . . . so far

Posted by: Kitten Power

Finally, it’s happened to me!
For the first time in what seems like a long while, I have found an album that I am listening to non-stop, continuously, addictively and without respite. 
Welcome to the incredible world of Santogold.
I first came across this artist through Mark Ronson’s album Version, where she provides the vocals for Pretty Green.
Santogold has been described by […]

Concert heaven continues

Posted by: Kitten Power

I was getting a little morose, thinking after a dream Summer and Autumn, concert season had dried up.  I feared all that would be on offer over winter would be the likes of Westlife, Panic at The Disco (now apparently without an exclamation mark, which doesn’t help anything) or even, God forbid, the freaking Ten […]

Lucky you’re so beautiful, Scarlett Johansson

Posted by: Kitten Power

So there’s been a bit of hype around for awhile about Scarlett Johansson releasing an album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, which is a Tom Waits tribute with one original track.  I heard a version she did of Summertime a little while back and thought it was pretty nice, so I had high hopes for […]
