New Year, New Zealand - 1/16/15

What better country to ring in the new year with than New Zealand? New Guinea? New Mexico? Those aren't even countries! Well, maybe New Guinea is but it doesn't really matter. What matters is that New Zealand's post punk contributions are underrated at best. It's pretty damn far away and before the internet and Lord of the Rings, most people didn't have any idea what was going on down there. Oddly enough, in the 80s, it seems like the vast majority of kiwi bands had a post punk/alternative kind of sound and there's something to be said for that.

There's something to played for that too and I hope it is this podcast episode. Click on the link below to download it:
