Too Tone NZ Music Month

NZ Music Every Godzone Month! sign from Too Tone Records in Dunedin.

Our New Zealand Music Month day #25 song comes from Faux Machismo.¬†Here’s the ominous crushing stoner-witch-doom-grunge of “Sink”:

Faux Machismo is Maeve Munro on guitar and vocals and Anna Ridley on drums and vocals. “Sink” is one of 4 songs on an EP also available on cassette.

Munro was, until a few years ago, an Auckland-based musician (Young Hellions, Cat Venom, Bengal Lights), now located in the small but significant NZ underground music enclave in Leeds, Yorkshire, in the U (for the time being) K.

Although the mood is set on pitch-black sludgy doom metal (think early Black Sabbath rehearsal room DIY recording vibes) there’s still a solid melodic and hypnotic heart to the songs that will be familiar to fans of Munro’s music as Young Hellions.
