Rating: 4/5

On the soundtrack to this new Kiwi film, Bill Sevesi's beautiful Bolero Bamboos and Prince Tui Teka's delightful Mum somehow work perfectly alongside the tough posturing of Ride With Us by Boss and the drum'n'bass metal of Concord Dawn's Raining Blood.

Also featuring are indie stars the Phoenix Foundation, chart-topper Gin Wigmore, and new talent Bella Kalolo singing the jaunty and soulful What Love Can Do written by Don McGlashan. It's an odd mix of artists, but it works.
