    There are places to discover beyond the Bombay Hills. Went to Sabroso, a great South American joint in Rotorua on Sunday night. A great finale to an excellent day: a screening of the NZ film Fantail at the tiny Basement Cinema, followed by hot pools in the Waikite Valley--great clouds of steam rising into the dark sky. NZ can seem some kind of wonderful on such occasions,

    I checked out Kendrick Lamar as a result of Grant Smithies writing how his Good Kid restored his faith in hip-hop. Lamar is something special but I guess my problem is I never had any faith in hip-hop to lose. So much it is formulaic, predictable, interchangeable. It is the noise from passing low-rider cars or neighbour's summer bbqs; noise without complexity nor emotion nor subtlety. I guess my deaf-ear extends to local versions or re-versionings,

    Went to Matthew Bannister's The Changing Same last night at Biddy Mulligan's. Pretty damn good. Less so was the brattish preceding act Pink Batts. Their songs were mercifully short--one voice from the crowd called out "can you play anything longer than 30 seconds?"
