Rosy Tin Teacaddy
In their journeys they discovered the characters, news reports and legends that would fuel the imaginings of travelling back in time. By forging new interpretations of existing myths, the Wellington folk duo carved their own into this full-length album; All Mountains Are Men. Written and recorded entirely in isolation at the cottage by the lake, this new collection of songs extends Rosy Tin Teacaddy's sonic palette by layering field-recordings, omnichord and cello on a bed of interlacing vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars. From an old-fashioned camera flash comes contemporary musical story-telling; cinematic and intimate. Releases 10 June 2011 Featuring a cardboard cottage on the night of June 10, 1886,the single Out of The Frying Pan and Into Fire, was written under the shadow of Mt Tarawera exactly 124 years after its eruption where Rosy Tin Teacaddy stayed up far too late and unshackled their volcanic imaginings. www.youtube.com/rosytinteacaddy Produced with thanks to Creative NZ and NZ Department of Conservation's 'Wild Creations' Artist In Residence Programme. Formed in 2007, Rosy Tin Teacaddy have built a reputation for narrative songwriting and lyrical craft coupled with wit and poignancy.

They have played the Nelson, Tauranga and Wanaka Arts Festivals, the ASB Magic Gardens, City and Dowse Galleries, guest-appeared on Radio NZ National and shared the stage with Chris Knox, Jose Gonzalez and Iron and Wine. … more time should have been given to Rosy Tin Teacaddy whose poetic folk lyrics, paired with serene yet melancholic vocals, were delicious.
