Tuesday Tunes: Fly My Pretties – “You Know Now”

Fly My Pretties has become a bit of a New Zealand institution. It’s a collaboration of a number of artists from around the country (mostly Wellington), who come together to record a live album every now and then. I think they’ve done 3 so far.

This track features L.A. Mitchell and is on their brand new album…coming out on March 19th. It’s groovy!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Los Angeles has it’s Hollywood Sign and New Zealand has…Wellywood.  Well, not really.  But the term has been coined as of recent years due to the some handy film-making by Peter Jackson.  A couple of friends and I headed North and visited Wellington (aka Wellywood).  We stayed with my awesome brother Jonny and walked the streets searching for bargains.  Oh it was heaven!  Vintage and second hand stores, cute wee coffee shops, inspiring art galleries and Te Papa – the coolest museum in NZ!

Here are some photos…

We did a lot of walking during our time away….got bored of that pretty quickly so dancing was the next best thing!
