Richard Whyte on Postmoderncore.
All the songs from his new lp : wireless sur le site de postmoderncore ou sur archive.org

Richard Whyte est néo-zélandais, tout comme l’excellent label postmoderncore (qui plus est un des premiers labels au monde à avoir adopté les licences de diffusion libre). C’est un songwriter de tout premier ordre, qui joue des chansons sur une guitare bancale à souhait, et qui y met de la voix, et de l’expression, et du coeur. J’ai passé cette nuit presque blanche à l’ écouter, sur cet album wireless, enregistré on stage. Allez, juste un titre qui me décoiffe le cerveau et m’arrache des poils de barbe (encore un barbu au fait) : “when you decide” (l’ensemble sonne très country-folk à la ryan adams).

  4. I just wanted to say thanks to Dana for the lovely comments about my album Wireless. I also wanted to ask if it would be ok to use a translation (as I can’t speak french) on a website I am making?? I would put a link to hear of course. I could only read a babelfish translated version and it had some wonderful lines (like ‘plays on wobbly guitar with a wish). From looking at Dana’s site I could see you speak french and english so maybe you could translate what you said for me? It was a very nice thing to say and it made my day (being that I play to five or six people usually in art galleries in Wellington, NZ). Thanks so much again.

    Yrs,
    Dick Whyte ()

  5. hi Dick !
    it’s nice to have a post from you from the far NZ country (far from us)..
    I will send you a mail with a translation of my words about wireless.
    (even if my english is.. humm… “approximative” ?)
