Kiwi by Proxy – Online Radio for New Zealand Music

Featuring the Best in New Zealand Music

Latest Episode of Kiwi by Proxy – Will Ricketts is up to being brilliant again

with one comment

Will Ricketts has a new album out. It came out a few months back actually and I spoke with him back when the world cup was on and it has taken me this long to actually put the podcast together. Yikes! Well I have been full on with work (which incidentally I love my job but I digress…)

As mentioned Will Ricketts new album came out a few months ago. He collaborated with Mike Fabulous (of Black Seeds fame) and the end result is Fabulous Meets Ricketts at Maitland Rd. It is something to behold – can you behold something aurally? If you can’t then you should and you definitely should behold this album.

It. Is. Fabulous.

The album features a horde of Wellington musicians so you go into it knowing you can expect it to have a very well polished sound. By well polished I mean well played, well put together not shiny and bright. In fact one of the things I love about this album is that it is stripped down a bit. There is a heavy reggae influence but more of the earlier rock-steady, rustic sounds from the late 50’s early ’60s. Ironic because so many of the artists on this album are from bands having that larger than life “Wellington [reggae] Sound”.

So have a listen to a few of the sweet tunes from the album and listen in as Will and I talk about the album. Well, we kinda talked about the album, ha! We actually chatted more about other things (shock!) than we did about the album. As always though it was enjoyable speaking with Will. What a nice fella and wow what a composer and musician he is. Tremendous.

Oh and check out the Amplifier site to purchase the album here.

Now onto to the podcast …
