Mundi's 3rd album going to be finished by Summer 2017!

We are so excited to be at the mixing phase of our new album "Pale Blue Dot". The journey of recording kicked off in February of this year where we went into Surgery Studios in Newtown, Wellington with the wondrous sound engineer Lee Prebble to lay down the core part of the album. (See photos to the left.)

A full blown album, reminiscent of times gone by of fiery, psychedelic dance and groove music all composed here in Aotearoa and performed by Tamara Smith - flute, Tyson Smith - guitar, Chris Burke- sax, Darren Mathiassen - drums, Johnny Lawrence - bass and special guests.

    About "In the Blink of an Eye"

    It seemed fitting to return to where my brother and I grew up to record this album on location in what is dubbed "la Shed"- on the most easterly point between Christchurch and Kaikoura. After all this is where our love of music took hold and is still a special place to us. The concept of the recording was a bit of an experiment, all trying to record in one room, but trying to capture a group dynamic that can sometimes be missing from recordings. A bit of a headache for our sound engineer with such a range of instruments and volumes. However.... I am happy to present to you our second album which I believe captures this interesting time and place and hope that this original music takes you on a journey ... like my first experience of music did.
