16 MAY 2014 ~ NZ ARTIST OF THE DAY: LITTLE BUSHMAN
16 MAY 2014 ~ NZ ARTIST OF THE DAY
"It's been a long time since I've been affected by an album in this way. Pendulum has worked a path through my blood stream, setting up outposts in far reaching arteries and organs and seems now ready to slowly open me up as it gently kneads the brain, sending it's signals to the hand that holds this pen that writes these words. What witchery is this?!"
Some of my all time favourite live gigs in New Zealand have been both Little Bushman and Trinity Roots gigs. The main reason being that they set a vibe in a room... and then they pick everyone up and transport them to a whole different level. These performances hold more than the joy of individual songs...they are a collective experience... and one that is always memorable!
"We collectively try to create a journey without sounding contrived & have made a conscious decision to use influences from the experimental, psychedelic Rock era of the 60’s & 70’s: Led Zep, Jimi Hendrix, The Who." Little Bushman
Each Little Bushman album is great... and their album with John Psathas and The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is simply divine - one of the best NZ orchestral-comtemporary albums out there!!
For the rest of us... check out their music when they're next in your town... here's a start...
