Compilation Album – AUTUMN 2015 – OUT NOW

Home Alone Music

AUTUMN 2015 (a compilation album)

Item/Product Number – HAM016 (DIGITAL/CASSETTE)

Release Date – May 22nd, 2015

Home Alone Music is very excited to announce the release of AUTUMN 2015, a new cassette/digital compilation. This album follows the small Wellington label’s previous seasonal sampler, SUMMER 2012 – a limited edition lathe cut release.

AUTUMN 2015 features unreleased songs from Home Alone bands French for Rabbits, Urbantramper and Eb & Sparrow.  The cassette and corresponding digital release will be the only way to get hold of these songs – none will be released on future albums.

The album also showcases radio hit ‘Good Keen Man’ by Lake South, an unreleased version of City Oh Sigh’s ‘Still Let Me In’, and a live performance of ‘When You Find That Love’ from Timothy Blackman’s last (but not final) performance in downtown Auckland. It is rounded out with new material from Home Alone friends Glass Vaults, Womb (Charlotte Forrester), Fraser Ross and Oscar Doorne.

City Oh Sigh release video for new single Sometimes

City Oh Sigh Sometimes

Home Alone Music is proud to present Sometimes, the first single from Wellington chamber-folk band City Oh Sigh’s forthcoming album Fragments Fine. The song, and corresponding video, whimsically capture the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life.

City Oh Sigh comprise four of the Wellington music scene’s most talented musicians. Three of them also appeared in the all girl power-pop octet St Rupertsberg. Lead by cellist/singer Kate Uhe, City Oh Sigh is an impressive evolution. They carefully craft soulful songs that capture audiences with their softness and beauty. The band combines unique cello laden instrumentation with subtle elements of folk and minimalist pop.

Fragments Fine was recorded by Wellington sound wizard James Goldsmith (So So Modern, Grayson Gilmour, PikaChunes, etc) and will be released on the 24th of February 2014.

Home Alone Music Xmas Party 2013

 

Home Alone 2013FINAL

Home Alone Music warmly invites you to our third annual Christmas Party. As per tradition, we will be holding the concert in an intimate location (previous venues include Evil Genius, Aro Valley Hall and mid-winter at The Moorings) featuring the Home Alone family; the wonderful City Oh Sigh, haunting dream-folksters French for Rabbits, anti-folk hero Timothy Blackman and electro-utopian trio Urbantramper.

Tickets are strictly limited and can be bought from here: http://www.undertheradar.co.nz/ticket/3251/Home-Alone-Music-Xmas-Party-2013.utr

We have found a great location near central Wellington/Newtown, and will be providing some food and drink, but BYO booze. The party also doubles as the release of City Oh Sigh’s new music video and single from their debut album due out early next year.

It has been a great year for Home Alone Music, with a string of releases; Timothy Blackman’s much admired ‘This Country’ EP, Urbantramper’s brilliant ‘Tomorrow We Leave Here’, and French for Rabbits dreamy single ‘Goat’. This will be the first show back in New Zealand for French for Rabbits since their successful 45-date tour through Europe. Performances on the night will be recorded for a potential H.A.M compilation live release.

We’d love to share our celebrations with you.
