Hot Club Sandwich warmly appealing with eccentric edges....having the time of their lives getting a handle on bluegrass, country blues, jug band, pop-folk, vaudeville music, and jazz á là Quintette du Hot Club de France, then adding devilishly clever wordplay for an old-time music of their own that can provide the exhilaration of watching a trapeze artist toeing the wire a few hundred feet high .

Laura Collins 'Collins' new album [ One feather at a time ] focuses on the relationships between friends and lovers.and has echoes both lyrically and vocally of recent work by singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter and Caitlin Cary. It is to Collins' credit then that in the main her songs and vocals are up to that standard. Emotive and intimate, 'One Feather at a Time' is a Kiwi slice of alt country (if there is such a thing) that deserves to find and audience amongst Americana listeners.'
