Hypnotic Brass Ensemble return to NZ in July, this time to play their own shows. They were last out here as part of the live line-up of Damon Albarn's crew The Gorillaz, back in late 2010, after playing at Womad in New Plymouth in March that year. They've also played as part of the band backing Mos Def. See them at Auckland's Powerstation July 20, Wellington's Bar Bodega July 21.
