New Zealand instrumental band Hiboux make melodic and poetic post-rock that combines transportive escapism with deep-set catharsis.
Here are my favourite homegrown alternative and experimental releases from 2016.
Six Noises EOY ’16: Outliers, Experimentalists, and Psychedelic Voyagers
It’s a huge honour to be debuting brand new music from New Zealand’s long-running gothic/darkwave band Disjecta Membra on Six Noises.
There’s no question that Earth Tongue’s first EP makes for a captivating listen from a band carving out a distinctive sound.
The world might be going to hell, but New Model Army are still manning the barricades and howling defiantly.
