Solace released in 2006
SOLACE by JAKOB is Dave's FAVOURITE NEW ZEALAND ALBUM EVER!!! ... that is saying something! until their new one comes out this year - maybe?
Intense atmospheric instrumental rock... masters of the 'quiet-loud' dynamic and delay on the delay... pedals galore... they sure know how to move a crowd. Live gigs are rare... so whenever you hear about one in your neighbourhood, we HIGHLY recommend you get out there to see them!
Hailing from Napier in the Hawkes Bay (North Island), this 3 piece band have a loyal following. If you like bands such as Mogwai, Sigur Ros,Tool ... chances are JAKOB sounds could be right up your alley!
Check out this youtube clip for 'Malachite' the first track on Solace:
This man is without a doubt PROLIFIC! Swim Down Low vinyl first appeared in NZ music stores on Record Store Day, 19 April 2014. This is Delaney Davidson's 5th solo album, however his music appears on numerous compilation albums and his three albums with Marlon Williams (Sad But True,Volumes I, II, III) released in 2012, 2013 and 2014 have also been incredibly sought after!
Please note Volume II is SUPER difficult to get!!!
Check out this youtube clip of the single 'Big Ugly Fish' on Swim Down Low ... if this is your cup-of-tea, you will definitely want to check out his albums. Want the good news??? Delaney Davidson tours extensively around the world... you do not have to be in NZ to check him out LIVE!! YAY for all of you elsewhere!
“Necessity is the mother of invention, and a low budget will lead to all sorts of beautiful stand-in potential. Whistling instead of violins. I love to see things take a step, and I think people like to see the triumph of a good idea over a slick production, I think it gives them hope and inspiration. Ultimately the result of hi gloss is alienation and a removed and depressed let down feeling of not being good enough. I say let it all go!”
