A new indie pop band from Norway. Check them out here.
"We just finished a Trident gum spot, and we licensed a track from the New Zealand band The Naked and Famous called “Young Blood”. They’re a new band, great song, really anthemic, really great vibe. It was really cool that their track worked so nicely with film."

Spotify has landed in NZ. Better than Grooveshark? I dunno - what do you think? (as the Producer said).

the Google doodle Moog
This has to be the coolest doodle Google have every done. Everything on it works, including the 4 track recorder. You can find it here, and an instruction video is here. Once you activate the keyboard (by playing a key), the red light will come on. After that you can play it with the computer keyboard (the ~ to = row is for the black keys, and the tab to \ row is for the white keys).
