Just in case this slipped through the cracks during your summer break, here we are. You’re welcome. Donald Glover, star of the critically acclaimed comedy series Community just so happens to be equally, if not more talented behind the microphone.
Fleur Jack and The Jandals
Ghosts of Cimarron
Fleur Jack’s debut offering symbolises a lot more than just its role as a presentation of sound; Ghosts of Cimarron signifies the fact that you can make a country/folk album in Aotearoa - and a good one at that. Granted, mention of Kiwi idiosyncrasies in GOC are markedly absent, and the music is near-indistinguishable from the country twangs of the international scene (both vocally and instrumentally). And of course, I mean this in a good way.
