Little Bushman Announces New Studio Album And Tour
Aotearoa's magnanimous psych-rock-blues quartet, Little Bushman, announce the release of their new album Te Oranga along with a bevy of tour dates.
On 4 April 2011, Little Bushman will release their long-anticipated follow-up to 2007's Pendulum. This third studio album was written and recorded over the last two years at Warren Maxwell's own recording facilities, STONEFEATHER studios.
Venturing at times into the shadows, then veering off up into the cosmos, it is sure to satisfy all who ingest it. From a delta-esque hoedown recitation of the cycle of life, to an alternative cosmic take on Creation, Te Oranga is their tour de force. The sheer diversity between the songs themselves allows for a meandering dynamic, which promises to make for great listening.
"Te Oranga is mostly a celebration of the warmer side of humanity" says band frontman Warren Maxwell.
To celebrate the release of Te Oranga, Little Bushman are keyed up to take to the road for four stellar shows, which will be their first solo performances in well over a year. Little Bushman is proud to perform them first, right here in Aotearoa. Soon after, they're heading to Australia for a handful of shows - including the revered Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Warren Maxwell says "We're really looking forward to getting on the road and sharing our new album with fans & whanau. We're taking our show to the next level to bring a quality psychedelic, sonic & visual experience - our audience deserve quality and we hope to oblige!"
With Nudge their special guests for all shows, a Wellington trio who recently supported The Black Seeds & Fly My Pretties nationally with their stomping drums, soaring guitar and savage organ mania, this will be a true kaleidoscopic experience - NOT to be missed by many people's standards!
