    • Matariki 2022!!
      • Kia ora, all!Hope everyone is doing okay as the icy chill of Winter really starts to grip (although, as today is the shortest day, can we not expect it to warm/ lighten up from here?!)Just thought we would let you know that, with Friday being the inaugural Matariki public holiday, we will open reduced hours - we will be here 11am-4pm for your musical delectation, plus the usual 10am-5pm Saturday/ Sunday. Happy Matariki, everyone - hope you get to spend it doing something you enjoy, and with people you love! The Slow Boat Crew X

    • Record Store Day 2022 at Slow Boat!!
      • Well, with all the disruption and distraction of the last few years now (hopefully!) largely behind us, Slow Boat is thrilled to share our plans for Record Store Day 2022  - this year taking place on just the one Saturday, the 23rd of April (a week after Easter!) As usual, we will be looking to serve up a tasty array of the limited edition RSD vinyl releases – we have done what we can to order in what we think might be of interest, and it is now in the lap of the gods/ vinyl manufacturing plants/ freight firms/ couriers – godspeed, people! We are also utterly thrilled to announce we will be joined by a couple of our favourite artists for instore performances – namely; Vera Ellen Having released the wonderful “It’s Your Birthday” on the iconic Flying Nun imprint last year, Vera has garnered some excellent reviews with what is a clever and charming collection of songs, and a real grower. Vera will perform instore at 2pm Luke Buda Dear friend of the ‘Boat, and Phoenix Foundation mainstay and co-frontman Buda last year released his long overdue third solo album, the eponymously titled “BUDA”;  a wonderfully reflective collection of songs that ponder our place in the world, getting older, getting along – which wound up on a lot of people’s ‘best of the year’ lists. Given that he was denied the opportunity to tour it (TWICE!) by that blimmin’ Covid, we are thrilled that Luke and violin maestro Anita Clark (aka Motte) have agreed to perform for us here instore at around 3pm. We will have plenty of copies of both artists’ albums, and they will be happy to sign for you at the conclusion of their performances. We will also have the odd spot prize and giveaway, as well as some lollies and other goodies, and will be opening at the earlier time of 9am, just to make the wait for those eager beavers outside just a little shorter. No reserves, no holds on the limited releases, please mask up, and please be patient and considerate of others – we want everyone to have a great day - can’t wait to see you all! Viva independence, viva vinyl – hoorah!!The Slow Boat Crew XX

    • Taylor Hawkins RIP
      • Terribly sad news through in the weekend of the passing of Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins - especially in the wake of the news that they were to tour NZ in December (our prize draw for tickets will now, obviously, not be taking place) - a monster drummer, who once popped into the store (and asked if he could use our bathroom!), he seemed like a hell of a nice guy, and Slow Boat sends our very deepest condolences to his bandmates, friends and family.
