A moody evocative piece that invokes images and impressions of the south island of New Zealand. Most of this verges on dream like statements of intent, however a fuzzed out guitar also makes its appearance near the end of the CD, which kind of shakes the listener out of the blissful ponderings of what life must be like in this part of the universe. Not bad at all. Another one of these kiwi performers who manage to get under your skin and stay there.
