Curator Picks | Week of 12th July
Written by The Team on 27 July 2021
Each week our curators put together a list of new songs to be featured on RDU. We’ve taken their hit pick and compiled them into one action-packed playlist.
Check out their picks below.
Becca: Headland – Crux
Crux is sick, there are not many other ways to describe it. Released on 1985’s compilation “Atlas /1”, alongside some of the world’s biggest producers, Headland’s Crux stands apart from the crowd.
Hannah: The Shelves – Atrocious
Poneke band The Shelves release the new track ‘Atrocious’. Known locally for their dorm-core noise, the four are back at it with their “British/Italian rock/punk boy” sound.
Leila: Tim Reaper & Comfort Zone – Sherpa
My track of the week is none other than Sherpa by Tim Reaper & Comfort Zone. I’ve been a fan of Tim Reaper for a while. So, his newest release being this good comes as no surprise.
Lewis: Incredible Yacht Control – I Was Alive
Bret Vogel was originally of Portland, but he’s in Auckland now, so we’ve co-opted him and his budget alternative sound. He has an impressive CV, formerly of Crosstide fame and fortune, and apparently had a hand in the creation of the Mint Chicks. Seriously, look into this guy, he’s got some patrician history under his belt.
