Smoke Notes

The 1987 debut album from New Zealand indie-pop pioneers The Bats, 'Daddy's Highway' has now been re-issued and re-mastered.

Complete with five bonus tracks from the band's early EPs, this CD is full of the haunting beauty and bittersweet melodies the four-piece have become so loved for.

One of the outstanding New Zealand albums from the 1980s, from the lo-fi pop hook of "North by North" through to the gentle drone of "Tragedy", 'Daddy's Highway' displays a quietly powerful sound that immeditedly tugs you in. There is a quirky energy throughout -- such as "Block of Wood" -- that also glows with shimmering harmonies, whispered vocals, reeling bass lines and a sweet sense of despair that is as catchy as it is thought-provoking.
