Worth the trip

Six years after their first collaborative album Fallen Debris, iconic New Zealand poet Sam Hunt and The Clean frontman David Kilgour are together again but this time it's Hunt behind the microphone. Their new 13-track album The 9th was recorded in Port Chalmers’ venue Chicks Hotel.

The recording was described as “bold, sometimes raucous, consistently passionate meeting" and we can't wait to listen in the flesh at Auckland’s Kings Arms Tavern this Saturday.
