The Ruby Suns: Kingfisher Call Me

The Ruby Suns

Have you heard this yet!? I’m talking about “Kingfisher Call Me” by The Ruby Suns off their forthcoming LP Christopher. The song is giving me intense chills right now! It’s easily the best thing I’ve heard ever from The Ruby Suns. Check minute 3:08. It’s like the end of “TMNT Mask” by Chad VanGaalen (off Soft Airplane) adorned in 80s glam. Brilliant!

Opossom: Fly (Video)


Sam Kristofski works magic on this video for “Fly” by New Zealand psychedelic band Opossom. I’ve been obsessed with Opossom of late, both this video and the band’s LP Electric Hawaii. For “Fly”, the video joins a collective of great ones for the year, including those by Sleep Party People, Mount Eerie, and Pure Bathing Culture. Read More »Opossom: Fly (Video)

Surf City: Kudos [Album Review]


At first, I found Surf City to give off those lo-fi garage vibes, with loud, swirling guitars and dreamy barely decipherable vocals.

The Ruby Suns: Cranberry [mp3]

  • Cyndi 


Sometimes a song exudes sunshine. “Cranberry” by The Ruby Suns is one such a song. A frivolously feathered song of big band regality, singing sirens and all-together chaos, this new tune captures the noises our parents asked us to keep quiet when we were young. The antithetical mixing of simple synthesized backbeats and dripping vocals make for a somehow breezy explosion of rhythms. One could not help but feel better while and after listening to this song.

Little Pictures: This House Can Fit Us All [Video]

Little Pictures

Written by Fense

Here’s the latest video from New Zealand’s very own Little Pictures (Homepage), an electro-pop outfit with affinity towards over-sized headphones, colorful cardigans, and robotic instrumentation. “This House Can Fit Us All” features, like much of Little Pictures’ music, lovable synth lines and male/female harmony vocals.
