Smoke Notes

Samuel Flynn Scott, lead singer of The Phoenix Foundation, spent 2007 writing and recording music for Taika Waititi's film 'Eagle Vs Shark' and for The Phoenix Foundation's third album 'Happy Ending'. This year Samuel Flynn Scott presents his second solo album ‘Straight Answer Machine’ (following his solo debut 'The Hunt Brings Us Life' from 2006).
Leading his own band 'Bunnies On Ponies' (Craig Terris - Cassette, Hell Is Other People and Bacon Foot, Tom Callwood - The Little Bushman, and Matt Armitage - Good Laika, The Family Cactus, Ginger Brown, and OdESSA) through Lee Prebble's infamous The Surgery recording studio in Wellington, resulted in a more oblique and grown up sound that deviates from the quirky Americana of his debut, instead communicating a dystopian landscape of melodic pop.
Pressing play on the opening track and lead single 'Llewellyn' is like falling down the rabbit hole and finding yourself in Samuel's wonderland. Hypnotic reversed electric guitar notes sprout through grassy acoustic strings underfoot. Samuel's lyrical magic paints swirling imagery that surrounds you as his echoing voice gently beckons you to follow him. A request that is completely irresistible.
Lilt along 'Sodium Ions', a path featuring structured rolling guitar phrases accompanied by bubbles of brass (played by Cassette/Head Like A Hole alumni Thomas Watson) that drift by and pop in the distance. 'Raver On Probation' sails up, a sing-a-long ship that introduces classic rock n'roll elements further emphasized in 'Leave Me Alone', which hoists you on board and rallies you in with the animated hand-clapping crew.
Lie back on 'Black Mark' beach and watch the clouds overhead as ukulele melodies dance over the bass waves on the shore… discovering the rest of this wonderland is up to you.
