Nakhane Toure, the boy who silenced Wolves
I dont know how many of you have been to Wolves in Corlett Dr? Its one of my favourite spots, there is good cake, delicious beer, fun art, pretty people and good friends. It is however not an ideal venue for live music, it must be one of the most difficult places in Jozi to play. People dont pay…Continue

To Hire a Nurse
I saw these guys about 2 years ago, I remembered loving them then and going online to hear some more. I found the odd song on Myspace and that was it. There is a track hiding on Youtube which you can see here. Perhaps it would be fun to read this post while listening to that track?
I was thinking over the weekend how to express the music they make and how it makes me feel.…Continue

Boyden does everything himself, from washing your hair, cutting, colouring and then finally…Continue

When I was a child we went there on school outings and I remember my neck killing me from looking up, whilst sitting on excruciatingly uncomfortable chairs made for adults.

For the first review of 2012 I am breaking my rules, slightly. JoziReview is supposed to be all Jozi all the time.
EP may seem very strange. Burial is from London and his new EP is dedicated to New York. I find it very difficult to listen to Street Halo and not think of Jozi. There are only 3 tracks which all clock in at over 6:20 which suits me fine, I like slow burning songs.
The first track Street Halo breaks most of my rules for music I…Continue
