Dion Lunadon "Dion Lunadon"
For all of the amazing musical things Dion Lunadon has been involved in, a proper solo release has never been one of them. You may know Dion from his days in the New Zealand powerhouse D4, or perhaps from his recent stint as the bass player from A Place To Bury Strangers. But his self-titled solo debut is another beast altogether. A blast of noisy, swagger-y punk blues that is a little like Jon Spencer meets Mclusky meets Unwound with a healthy dose of New Zealand garage pop melodies thrown in to boot. The result is an energetic party in which you wear the blackest of clothes you have in your closet to, because it’s a super cool party too. Make sure you get yourself invited by checking out the distorted bounce of “Howl.”
