Musik   little league shows: Ned Collette & Wirewalker (AUS/SWE/DK/Berlin) Bannerman (NZ/Berlin)
+DJ Späti
Bannerman info: Bannerman combines the song writing of Richie Setford and the musicianship of Ben Anderson (drums), Magnus Bang-Olsen (bass) and Oliver Emmitt (trombone). They have released 3 albums and 1 EP to wide critical acclaim, winning a 2012 NZ Music Award and being shortlisted for the Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s most revered song writing accolade.

Richie’s relocation to Berlin in 2013 forced a reconfiguring of the back catalogue in a live context and became the catalyst for the 4 piece's quietly dramatic new material. Dreamy and brooding ballads are now the focus of a Bannerman show. These are songs that have a compelling and dynamic structure, an often disarming, melancholic undercurrent and an intimacy that draws the listener in.

Earlier this year Bannerman toured Germany as support act and backing band for Bella Union artist Tiny Ruins. Other European supports include The Magic Numbers, Shovels & Rope, Anais Mitchell and Lawrence Arabia. The band are now in the process of recording new demos for an album to be released in 2015.

"...brooding lo fi lush awkwardly perfect glory." (Bannerman EP) – Andrew Tidball (

"In his darker moments, he might be a more tuneful Nick Cave, but his melodies are so full of unexpected twists, his chord changes so cunning, that I'm equally reminded of the Beatles' White Album era." (The Dusty Dream Hole) – Nick Bollinger, The Listener

"The Dusty Dream Hole is a gorgeous album to warm up winter nights and glaze over the dust settling on your eyes, whatever the season." (4/5) – Brock Oliver, Yahoo
