Title: Panegyric
Format: CDR
Label: Nextbestway
Country: New Zealand
Price: $14.00
"An onslaught of extended improvised noise workouts: senseless,messy,directionless and ear-wracking.... for improvisation to be a risk the performers need to be striving for a vision, need to be striving to take us somewhere. On these recordings however it doesnt sound like any striving is going on at all. This sort of self-indulgent,directionless improvisation irritates me not for its rejection of structural convention,or its grating timbre,but because of the self-satisfied absence of ambition it embodies.  I cannot help but feel swindled - I can hear no passion, no giving, no magic, no sharing, no dynamics, no vulnerability. Just the air-tight armour of arrogance. Im sure the band members are marvellous people personally: but musically this is obnoxious and not in a good way" - Henry Lauer/ Heathen Harvest. Alastair Galbraith: glass harmonica, violin; Bruce Russell: clavioline, guitar. Recorded live at Lines Of Flight 2006.

"delicate AND strong,real AND hypnotically beautifulthe songs of maxine funke are a serious addiction I should warn you about.her past projects include albums withTHE HUNDRED DOLLAR BAND,and THE SNARES,and at one time she played guitar in SNAPPER This her first solo album,was recorded over the last four years in the brief spaces new parenthood allows,in these stolen moments she also created several hundred completely individual,arresting hand-printed images, then combined the two prodigies so you could have LACE! Im awed by some of these songs! Spellbound when they replay themselves all day in my inner ear! Honoured to have contributed a couple of occasional whisps of sound to such a beautiful album." - Alastair Galbraith.

"not since 2000s CRY has alastair galbraith delivered an album of song-based material. here are 20 new tracks, all hiss and bones raw hurt and high wonder.  familiar backwards  folk  "here not there",  barely-there ballad-fragments  "one direction","tumbling" ,"homesick"  "Short Dream For Fire Organ" where alastairs home-made gas-powered instrument booms  away in a tunnel (pictured on the  back cover) while disembodied  whisperers come and go with you trapped down there under a bad drug "cut"  a very short track of what sounds like 3 frogs 2 locusts and  several clockwork motors recorded in a pigskin bladder. "Head Down" a  hypnotic lullaby  with  swelling rolls of delayed guitar and tidal washes of vocals. "Cloth Master" which punches you repeatedly,while screaming in your face favourites would have to include the rock-bottom alt-country resignation  of "something happened" and the mirror-imaged "your lilt"  which ends with you waltzing with a skating cello round heaven." - Nextbestway.
