A much busier month than September reflected in more content, more reviews – I was busy too, up to Auckland to do some DJing and see some shows, a couple of new podcast eps (good ones, if I do say so myself; ones I enjoyed I mean…) and lots to write about. Some good shows.
And I got through more record reviews in October – in particular checking back in with albums I’d played a lot earlier in the year but hadn’t (yet) written up. Lots of New Zealand music and more jazz than I can remember reviewing in any single month perhaps ever. So that was cool. Lots of brand new music too really.
You’ll find reissues, compilations, EPs and live albums – as well as full-length studio releases. Most of the material here was released in 2014/15 but in some cases it was released in 2013 and only made it to me this year – or I only (finally) got to it this year.
