Auckland's Broken Heartbreakers have been stunning the country and the big city with their big lonesome little heart songs for the past two years. The sound of tears was never so lush and rich as on last year's sophomore self-titled record. Described as an 'eleven track gem' by the Otago Daily Times, the record has received gushing and well-deserved praise from from New Zealand's foremost critics, with Nick Bollinger, Graham Reid and Grant Smities all revelling in it beauty and sonic promise. A compassionate and compelling live act, the BHBs have seen the country, wowed the city, and along the way shared the stage with songwriting heavyweights The Handsome Family and Lou Barlow.

Bond Street Bridge is perhaps the sonic heart of its one member, Sam Prebble. An electrifying presence onstage with Reb Fountain's Bandits and the Broken Heartbreakers, Prebble provided a welcome addition to his extra-curricular bands' output with last year's solo debut The Mapmaker's Art. Finding its way into many critics' best of 2008 lists, the album showcases Prebble's singular genius and provides a compelling introduction to one of New Zealand's sweetest secrets. Live, Bond Street Bridge suggests that Prebble can indeed deliver the proverbial goods, making his performance as sonically and heart-warmingly rich as his record and marking him out as an ingenious, exciting and gifted performer.
