The Shifting Sands - Cosmic Radio Station
The Shifting Sands are Mike McLeod (guitar/vocals), Tom Bell (bass) and Jake Langley (drums). The trio run and allegedly haunted music venue called Chick's Hotel in Port Chalmers, which is near Dunedin. Able assistance on a couple tracks is provided by David Kilgour on guitar and Alex Vaatstra on violin. Cosmic Radio Station is released by Dunedin label Fishrider Records, which not only performs a wonderful service in exposing the music of the south island to a broader audience, but has excellent and varied taste, as demonstrated on the label's Bandcamp page.
UK fans are advised that Occultation Records will have copies of the album later this month.
