Hunz - Thoughts that Move - Album Launch

I've gone on about how capable local artist Hunz is in the past, but now it is relevant to mention him again.

He's gone and finished off his second long player, "Thoughts that Move". And, because he is such a nice guy, has offered it to punters for free from his website. What a guy.

He is launching the record at the Troubadour on May 28th. That's a week away. Chiptunes artist Dot.Ay is also helping him out (his show is quite entertaining and interactive) as well as Toy Balloon.

While the album is available for free, I encourage you to get a physical copy of the cd and support a local guy!

Hopefully, if I get a bit more time away from my studies, I'll get the chance to share my thoughts on Hunz's latest work. I'm sure it will be ace.

In other news, how good are the new Phoenix and Passion Pit releases? OMG.

It's a great album. I've had on proverbial 'high rotation' for weeks! See you at the show Daz.

Also, Passion Pit is v good, but I haven't checked out the new Phoenix yet. Will do.

Many people are already saying the Passion Pit album is 2009's MGMT. I think thats a bit too cynical. We'll see how it holds up after a bit of the hype dies down, I guess.

The new Phoenix is not much difference from any of their other stuff - a few great songs with a few filler tracks. "Fences" is a great little tune though. That is the thing about Phoenix, you know what you're going to get, and for most, that is OK.
